Rustoleum Epoxy for Basements

andrelaplume2November 12, 2013

Anyone use this stuff?. I see they have stuff explicitly for basements, garages, and saw one at HD that says its for both. I have seen it in my Dad's garage and its nice and has held up. I'd like to use it in part of my basement with area rugs. I am curious how it holds up under repeated foot traffic. I heard not PAINT the floor unless its epoxy based.

My concrete is clean and dry...20+ years old. I am concerned about cleaning or etching. I can not see how I could get a garden hose down there, soak the floor, rub in the etch stuff, then wash it away.

Anyone with thoughts or experience, please advise.

Thanks!

I have an epoxy garage floor. It's held up great - I did it 15 yrs ago. I advise adding pumice to the epoxy - without it it will be very slipperly when wet.
