Many home owners are turning to epoxy as the best floor finishing available on the market. Epoxy is a mix of resins and hardeners chemically bonded to form a strong and durable surface. Epoxy comes in different colors and the addition of flakes into the resin-mix gives the epoxy layer depth and texture. If needed, anti-skid components can be added into the resin to achieve anti-slip qualities in your flooring. Garage Floor epoxy is suitable for commercial garages and residential garages. No matter where you apply it, epoxy flooring will transform the look of the room.
Benefits of Garage Floor Epoxy
- Strength and Durability: The cross-links made in the epoxy-mix results in a strong and durable finish which resists abrasion, chipping, and cracking. A strong floor finish is needed in a garage because garage floors suffer the weight of cars, the effect of dropped tools, and the seasonal changes of weather and temperature.
- Easy to Clean: The garage is the one place where you can get dirty and messy. Projects such as car repairs, mixing of paints, sawing of planks all generate a mess. With an epoxy garage floor, clean up is easy. Epoxy is stain resistant making it easy to clean oil, grease, and chemical spills.
- Theme and Style: In addition to its physical strength, garage floor epoxy is also attractive. An epoxy floor will transform a dreary garage into a showroom. Neighbors will admire your garage and friends will gravitate to your garage as the best place to have a beer and shoot the breeze. By using paint flakes and colored quartz, you can design your floors to match the colors of your favorite sports team!
- Home Value: Though not a guarantee, installing epoxy flooring in your garage may increase the value of your home. Home buyers, especially car-enthusiasts and hobbyist, may be willing to pay more for a garage that is attractive and a pleasure to be in.
