This is very common around these parts and you can't hire a builder to built one for anything close to the price of a pre-built. And like I said, the quality is excellent and no it does not come in sections. The complete garage is delivered by truck and dropped on your prepared bed of stones. One of the largest dealers in this area is Kloter Farms. You can Google this, view the site, and come to your own conclusions. Meanwhile, my original question remains. Any durable paint suitable for a pressure treated plywood garage floor. It seems like the answer is no. How about a quality marine paint. It's nice to see that everyone is having some fun with this.
Thanks for coming back and clearing things up a little for us. The problem with painting a garage floor is that you need a hard, chemical and abrasive resistant coating for the garage environment. For the fact that the substrate is wood, you need a coating that can flex with the wood. There is not a coating that does both. Ask wolverine if he has concocted anything that might work, but I do not know of any. I like SW All surface enamel for thresholds and "saddles" of doorways and have it on the floor of my trailer. SW also has a product called tredplex that might work but i would plan on re-coating every 3 years. I would go with tiles for a long term solution.

I haven't seen or heard of any paint that will hold up to the weight of a car driving over it for very long on top of plywood. The joints will move, the boards will bend where there isn't any support (between the joists) and the paint will fail. It's just too much punishment for paint on ply to take.

If it has to be treated, I would just advise the customer to have 3 coats of a thin preservative oil stain and put up with any spillage marks that might happen (or just tile or vinyl floor covering).

that is why I suggested elastomeric. OR I guess you could coat it in C.I.M. Bout the nastiest, toughest coating around, and it is pliable.

Do you think it would take a ton or so of car rolling over it on a daily basis?

Ok, I got it! Brush used motor oil on it! it will give it a nice, rich, stained look and when you spill more it will just blend in!

Thanks for all the possibilities. I will discuss these options with the customer.

The attached link describes what the Poster may be talking about.

I'd be concerned about heat from the tires lifting the coating.

A water borne floor coating, like Rustoleum's epoxy garage floor coating, may be an option.

Addendum to previous post: Epoxies, whether water borne or solvent, tend to resist oil, and chemical deterioration better then single component coatings.

yes they do but they are too hard for a plywood floor. My money is on epoxy failing on plywood.

elastomerics would flex but you can't drive on them and they do not resist chemicals or hot tires. I would not think you would need anything more than regular paint flex to meet that need, but epoxies would be too hard. Where is NACE?

SW Treadplex will not hold up to Hot tire pickup. There is nothing with will both hold up to the abuse, and flex with the wood. There are just some surfaces that are best left not painted. (that is hard to say for a paint salesman)

Default plywood floor coating

My specialty is floors (concrete and plywood. Their are a number of ways to do this floor depending on use and if the joints need to be hidden. If you need to talk a bout this in detail email me at slack31@yahoo.com and I will give you my phone number. I have completed quite a few of these projects for the idiots that were leaving you threads like the ones above.

How about a Polyurea coating?

Chemical, abrasion and heat resistance of an epoxy but flexes like an elastomeric. Hard stuff to work with though.

I live in the northeast but i cant say that ive seen one of those garages. Not being attached to the dwelling im sure the fire codes arent nearly as strict with regards to the floor.
