Your garage is an extension of the home. It’s where you store old holiday decorations, memories of your high school years and baby clothes from your grown children. It’s where you park your cars to keep them safe from the cold and rain. It’s the only place where you may be able to house some sort of man cave or workshop.
Unfortunately, garages rarely get the same attention as the other areas in your home. It’s understandable; a garage is a garage. You can have unfinished walls and floors and still have it look good, but you can’t do this in the kitchen or bathroom. Yet over time, things like parking the car in the garage and exposure to fluctuating temperatures wreak havoc on your garage floors. The floors can become cracked, pitted or stained.
One of the best solutions for giving your garage floors new life is applying an epoxy coating. Not only does epoxy provide the flooring with a protective cover, but also it transforms a boring, dull concrete floor into something magnificent. This is great news if you’ve been forced to relocate your man cave or hobby to the garage! And don’t worry – you can still park your vehicles there.
Benefits of Epoxy Coating
Here are some of the reasons why homeowners opt for an epoxy coating in their garages.
- It’s the hardest and thickest application you can get.
- It’s durable and resilient to chipping, chemicals, stains and surface abrasions, all common problems in residential garages.
- It covers minor imperfections and flaws that already exist in the concrete.
- It looks nice.
- It is anti-dusting, meaning that it doesn’t kick up dust like cement does.
- It’s moisture resistant. Any ice or road salts that collect during the winter can be cleaned with soap and water.
- It can be made to be slip-resistant by adding acrylic flakes.
