Epoxy floor paint is used to seal porous cement floors from mold and cracking damage caused by garage spills and ground moisture. It is a must for long-term durability. Used alone it will improve the appearance of your floor, and make cleaning up fast, but painted cement is a hard and slippery surface ill-suited for standing and walking upon. A non-professional can apply epoxy paint, which costs from $2.50-$5 a square foot, but the preparation, mixing and painting is time consuming and difficult. Applied by a professional, the labor costs from $5-$15 and hour on top of supplies. Using additional coverings over a sealed floor will lengthen its life even more.
Porcelain Floor Tiles: Porcelain Floor Tiles are common in automotive workshops and showrooms as they are very hard wearing. These high quality and contemporary tiles are normally used for professional automotive workshops.

Though slightly more expensive than other options, porcelain floor tiles provide an extremely good investment as they last a long time and are easy to keep clean.
