When you think of a garage floor, you may think of grey concrete stained with oil and other chemicals that may be cracking or peeling in some places. However, this does not have to be the state of your garage floor. Epoxy garage floor coating can be used to give you the clean, attractive, durable floor you are looking for.
Benefits of Epoxy Flooring
Your garage floors can be coated with a durable epoxy resin coating that will protect your floor for 15-25 years. These coatings also strengthen your floors, preventing concrete cracks and peeling. Because they are nonporous, garages with epoxy garage floor coating do not allow for mold or bacteria growth. This inexpensive waterproof flooring option also prevent concrete stains.
Epoxy floors are customizable. They come in a variety of colors, so you can choose a color that matches your home or a great contrasting color that draws the eye. These floors can also be poured to look like stone, such as marble, or in a number of patterns, such as squares and stripes.
You can also adjust the thickness of your epoxy flooring based on how your garage is used. More industrial uses may require a thicker epoxy. In addition, you can customize your floors based on your local climate. For example, do you live near an ocean with salty air, or does your city use salt to melt the snow and ice from the streets? Your epoxy flooring’s durability can be adjusted to meet your needs.
Epoxy garage floor coating requires the mixture of an epoxy resin and hardener. However, the mixture is adapted to fit your needs. Although many mixes can be purchased from local hardware or home improvement stores, mixing and application requirements may make it difficult to apply the coating yourself and ensure its durability. However, an experienced epoxy flooring contractor can ensure your coating is properly mixed and applied so its lifespan is lengthened.
If you want to protect your garage floor while covering up its imperfections, consider durable, inexpensive epoxy flooring.
