Quick help needed - painting garage floor

Posted by herus (My Page) on

The house we are buying is about 13 years old. The garage has seen its share of spills and other mishaps, but really not too bad except for a major oil leak over the past couple of years.

As the home is now vacant (renters moved out) the owner has given us access in order to paint the garage. We went to HD last week and decided to do some sort of epoxy.

On Saturday, we washed and cleaned with Behr 990 degreaser. Got the actual oil off though marks remain.

On Sunday, we primed with the Behr concrete Bonding Primer, no 880.

Today/tomorrow, the plans WERE to start painting using Behr Concrete and Garage Floor Paint (1-Part Epoxy) But I decided to check into the forums and am reading that this may not be such a desirable way to do it. Have not purchased it yet.

We are running short on time and need to do this this week, preferably starting today. Any suggestions for a reasonably durable and attractive alternative, or is the Behr product ok in general? I realize it is not the same as a pro job but that is not what I am looking for (or to pay for).
