Name: Reflectix Insulation
Bought it at Menards
Thickness: Not sure, 1/4 inch maybe. Its just shiney bubble wrap.
Stays put? Yes, I have it taped to the framework with aluminum tape.

Sweet garage! I used that same insulation from Menards under my garage floor for a vapor barrier. Laid it out, taped the seams with aluminum tape, and poured the concrete on top of it.

Did the same with my garage doors but just used the WHITE foam. I glued it to the doors with Liquid Nails. Makes the garage so much brighter and really keeps the garage insulated.

Some day I hope to have a cool floor. Thought it would be epoxy, but not sure yet with all the great "tile" options. The Gladiator cabinets are great. Found the wall cabinet on CL, cheap, but they hardly come up at all anymore. Lowes used to carry the brand (maybe they still do ) and they will deal on the prices some if you are buying several pieces and ask for a deal.

I thought about doing the fancy floor in the shop side of my barn. Was really liking the epoxy. But after getting spilled oil, grease, beer, ect on the concrete I changed my mind. Sticking with concrete. Keep a good sealer on it and the spills clean up easy.

You can use acid etch (2 times) and a pressure washer (steam cleaner is best) to get up the oils. I'd recommend an oil-based concrete stain, instead of epoxy. Epoxy only adheres to the surface (think: topcoat), but, the stain soaks into and bonds to the concrete (even over oil stains). Unfortunately, Sherwin Williams has discontinued what we used to use, as they continue to drop oil-based products. I need to look at some other brands, for a replacement.

Actually I should of worded that different. What I meant was I do not want to do anything with the floor so I won't worry about spilling stuff on it or dropping something heavy causing damage. I really like the look of those garages but I still want mine to feel like a shop. I wonder what weld spatter would do to those tile floors or epoxy?

I like your idea of just staining the concrete. It would look nice but still have that I can get it dirty shop feel to it. Since it is still just concrete.

I keep a can of carb cleaner around to clean up small grease or oil spills.

Atomic Top Coat. I used this product on my floor and it has been great. You can also add a stain color to it if you like. Browse their site for many other types of sealer.

Ouch! I'll stick with my bare concrete. And I thought the industrial sealer was expensive at 90 bucks for 5 gallons!

I just used a basic water based concrete paint in my garage, knowing from the start that it was going to get some abuse. Some of it has been lifted by hot tyres, & there are chips, bits of overspray & weld burn on it now, but it's still much nicer than bare concrete & cheap enough not to worry about damaging.

Cheers
Clint

You get what you pay for. In my case this was a new floor and I only wanted to seal it once.

Good product isn't cheap and certainly isn't a box-store offering.
