It is important to identify the needs of the job you are considering. Is it high traffic? Will there be heavy equipment rolling across it? How about chemical spills? Do you need to choose between smooth and slippery? What do you expect its longevity to be? Is beauty an important factor? If your are doing your garage floor at home to make it easily cleanable, the high traffic and beauty aren’t a factor, and longevity probably won’t justify a higher price. On the other hand, if you are doing a hotel hallway, hospital halls or a loading dock, most or all of these factors need to be considered.
