Epoxy coatings are one of the toughest and most durable finishes you can apply to your garage floor. Not only do epoxy coatings protect your garage floor from wear and tear, they also transform any boring old cement garage floor into an impressive looking showroom that’s both functional and appealing. Nowadays, garages are used for much more than just parking cars; many people use them for storage, entertainment, or even convert them into living spaces. An epoxy coating can bring a grimy old garage floor back to life that will last a lifetime.
You may think that epoxy coatings are only for car dealerships, showrooms, or super fancy garages, but that’s not quite the case. Epoxy coatings are affordable, durable, and can be used in both residential and commercial applications. Whether you’re looking to rejuvenate your garage or give your shop a functional facelift, epoxy coatings will give your garage floor a whole new look. Here’s why you should consider epoxy garage floor coatings:
Enhance Your Garage Design
Simply, epoxy coatings make garage floors look exponentially better. Instead of a dull, cracking concrete floor, epoxy produces a glossy, smooth surface for a much cleaner look. Offered in a variety of applications, epoxy coatings allow for custom designs such as fades, flakes, or even colour schemes to match your favourite sports team. Whether you are looking for a new place to watch the game, or just a more appealing backdrop for your car, epoxy coatings are a much more attractive garage floor option.
Make Your Garage Cleaner
Over time concrete breaks up to form powder and debris that builds up in your garage. This powder coats the floor, stools, benches, and any other objects left inside, so if you spend any time in the garage, the dirt can easily get trailed into your house. Epoxy coatings are considered a topical sealer, which is dust resistant and very easy to clean, unlike standard garage floors. Epoxy coatings are also moisture resistant, which is great for people living in wet or snowy climates. Ice brine and road salt penetrate your tires in the winter, often staining or messing up your garage floor. With an epoxy coating, salt is easily washed off with a mop and soapy water.
Long-Lasting and Increased Durability
On top of being cleaner and more attractive than standard garage floors, epoxy coatings are much more durable. They are relatively inexpensive, easy to apply and last for much longer than concrete. As mentioned above, epoxy floors are both dust and moisture resistant, allowing them to last longer than an untreated garage floor. Manufacturers offer 15-year or lifelong warranties, so you can be confident in the longevity of your epoxy floor coatings.
