In Florida, any concrete poured that is considered "interior" space requires a vapor barrier be laid down prior to the pour. If you have a driveway, and it is outside, a vapor barrier is not required. Keep in mind that in Florida, the water table is at times only 10 to 12" below the ground surface. We are basically an improved swamp.

I just had a polyurea based florr coating system installed in my garage. They ground the surface to open the porous structure of the concrete, they filled cracks first, then they rolled on the polyurea base coat and then buried the floor in multi-colour chips and grit. The next day they blew the loose chips into a corner and vacuumed them up and then sealed it with a clear coat. They even did vertical surfaces of concrete. The whole job took a couple of days for an 800 sq ft garage. Results were excellent and the floor has a little grip to it so it isn't super slippery when wet.

I used the rustoleum 2 part epoxy from Lowes. I have no performance problems with the coating and it adheres well so far. My only complaint is that I used the grey color without the flake chips and the colors from one gallon to the next do not match. I used about 5 gallons to do 1500 sq ft and you can tell where each gallon started and ended. If had it to do again I would have mixed all the paint together in a big bucket and then back in the individual cans.

I too have the Rustoleum product. My color is tan. It is now 12 years old and has helped up very well.

If I had it to do over: Painted floor is slippery, needs grit. Sweeps and swabs easily without the grit, but is slippery when wet.

One thing I found with my new (few weeks old) polyurea based floor, the grit level is such that it actually makes sweeping difficult. That said, if I roll into the garage with wet tires I do want to stop, so I am happy with the amount of grit.
