Looking for ideas for a customers garage floor. They think the floor flexes too much because it's om the upper level of the home..... thre is another garage directly under this one. The garage floor is I beams with a heavy corrogated metal designed for that purpose. The pan is of course filled with concrete to make the floor surface.
The concrete sloes inwards for some unknown purpose. The home is 2 years old and had n excellent builder.......... so why the slope is there confuses me.
Enough about that. So there are no moisture issues like most slabs have.
The problem is water puddles under the front of the vehicle which gets drive almost daily. This is Oregon, so it rains.
I'm looking for suggestions of a floor surface for them. Epoxy and ceramic tile are out, so looking for something that is cleanable and sweepable. The want it to look nice, as this is the wife's garage.
Anyone have experience with sheet type products?
.....or any other ideas?

If memory serves me at all any more, this reminds me of the showers in the Oregon State Penitentiary which was built new many years ago. Shower floors sloped to the rear and the drains were in the front. Maybe the same contractor?

Ha, I missed that one. Is that the one they never opened up?
Have no clue how that happened in a high end home.

Sorry ranman I got nothing but it waves all kinds of red flags to me. A suspended metal and concrete floor that flexes and water pooling area(s)above a large opening below calls to me--run Forrest. RUN!

maybe reinforce from below?

There are some cracks in the concrete. To me, it looks like the concrete dried too fast, not something recent. Driving the Ford Excursion into the garage it dipped less than 1/8" across the 25 foot span. I think far less than 1/8".
The center I beam is plenty big.
I'm curious as to what products people have used to cover garage floors with.
