Your garage floor is probably the most abused floor in your home, but it is also probably the least likely to receive proper cleaning and repair. However, updating your garage flooring has more benefits than just giving the space an updated look. These are reasons you may choose to invest in new flooring.
It Enhances the Look of Your Garage
New garage flooring can make your garage look great. Epoxy coatings hide previous stains and damage, and they typically resist new stains, chemicals and scratches.
In addition, you can choose flooring in a variety of colors, textures and styles. Do you admire the old checkerboard patterned flooring? You may have that option. Would you prefer a more streamlined, stone or solid color look? These are options as well. You can add livable space or a new workshop
It Repairs Cement Damage
These products can even cover cracks, peeling or other flaws in your concrete floor. Instead of filling in the damages, epoxy fillings actually seal your garage floor so the damage doesn’t expand. This protection is due to the installation process. Before your flooring contractor starts to apply the epoxy flooring, the floor is ground. This removes old coatings and damage and allows deeper penetration of the epoxy finish, which is allowed to cure after its application.
It Is Durable
In addition, its impact resistance prevents future cement damage. In addition, epoxy flooring won’t lift and peel like paint. Whereas paint can look patchy over time, your epoxy is bonded to your cement flooring, so it won’t develop wear spots that can become unattractive and dangerous.
Your epoxy is also easy to clean because of its resistance to many of the impurities you and your vehicle bring into your garage. For example, it is resistant to dirt, grime, moisture and many chemicals. These materials do not penetrate the epoxy, so they can be easily cleaned up.
