Whether in a garage (shown here), basement, or dedicated outbuilding, concrete floors for home shops are the norm, far exceeding the number of wood floors. And while concrete provides a flat surface on which to roll mobilized tools, it can absorb drips and spills from motor oil, woodworking stains, and other liquids. Another problem: Smoothly troweled or sealed concrete can prove slippery when coated with fine sawdust. Beyond that, its look is not all that great. To remedy these issues, consider laying down an attractive two-part epoxy paint and sealer on your concrete that lets you easily wipe up spills, sweep up dust, and provide a sure grip underfoot. Plus, when you do the installation yourself, big savings are in store.
