There are, however, some disadvantages to painting your garage floor. This is especially true if you are looking to repurpose your garage, perhaps to turn it into a garage gym.
Floor paint can take a long time to dry, especially in high humidity and low temperatures in winter. The painted floor may also be vulnerable to chemicals and oils which are often found in a garage.
It will generally have poor resistance against common garage spills like grease and is also very sensitive to moisture.
Plus, it is likely that you will have to top up the paint every year to keep it looking fresh.
