Fellow Jeepers:

I just bought a new place and converted the 50x80 horse barn into a shop by pouring a new, insulated concrete floor in it. Looking at it today completely empty, I thought that this might be my only chance to do something other than a bare floor. Once the concrete is fully cured, I'll be moving all the equipment from my old shop into the new, making it much harder to do something going forward.

Has anyone used a floor coating product that's stood the test of time? If so what?

I've come to this conclusion. If you're going to use the shop as a shop, leave it bare concrete.

I did a lot of research on coatings when I did my shop. Every coating needs to be taken care of, or gets slippery, or limits what you can do on it. In the end I just left the concrete as is.

Did they use a power trowel on your slab? Those seem to leave a better surface behind. I think there was 4 guys riding them around on my slab when I had it poured (my shop is the same size as yours).
This is pretty much where I ended up. Mostly because I ran out of time an have to begin moving thing in. I did have them power trowel it smooth, figuring I wanted it at least to be easy to sweep. I hope I don't fall and bust my butt too much.
