Default Show your garage

Hello fella's. There might be thread like this already, but I'm in the middle of buying a house currently and of course the garage is just as important if not more important to me. So, I want to see some ideas of what/how you guy's have your garage's are setup especially the floor. I am deciding between a garage tile vs an epoxy floor coating. I am leaning more towards the coating because of cost and I am worried about how well things like floor creepers, tool carts, and floor jacks will roll on the tiles. Anyways, post away!

The coating!!!! I did this, I will try to get some photos, I am moved out and the house is under contract so I will have to try to find some pics. I had it done about 2 years ago and love it, I have spilled so many chemicals, paints, stains, boiled beer over onto it and it all wipes right up! If you run into something a little trickier it can usually be mopped out. Sweeping is a breeze also, don't worry about cracks and little places for things to catch. It also makes the place not feel like a garage as much. Very happy with it.

Mine is just a bare concrete floor but I would love to put some kind of coating down. I have parted out two cars in the garage so the floor is a mess and it also has some scrapes from dragging the shells out. I really need a bigger garage since mine is full of two cars plus an extra engine for my wagon along with the two auto transmissions I pulled for manual swaps.

Just a heads up, I found someone on craigslist that prepped my floor and applied the epoxy I bought for less than it was going to cause me to rent the machine and buy the blade/wheel I needed on it from home depot. Also was about 2k less than another company was going to charge me. So if you are looking to do it but think you can't afford it or aren't comfortable doing it yourself check out craigslist or post a wanted ad on there, obviously that involves a little risk, but it worked out in my case. There are plenty of companies out there that need jobs and will take a hit on their profit just to bring something in.
