Epoxy flooring provides an attractive sheen that protects the durable surface underneath the epoxy coating. With the proper addition of epoxy to your garage floors, you too can have visually attractive floors that welcome you and your guests into the space.
Epoxy is a coating that is typically applied over concrete floors in garages and other locations of the home or business. They provide a high performance, smooth and durable surface that can often last for many years and withstand the common dangers of garages, including vehicle spills, heavy loads and stains, which make them one of the best garage flooring options. Some of the reasons why our clients choose epoxy garage flooring include:
It is common for garage floors to have stains and cracks. Before applying epoxy, a professional technician will want to ensure that there are no existing cracks in the underlying concrete. If there are, he or she can take steps to repair the crack. A professional can clean the floor with a degreaser or general-purpose cleaner. Once the technician removes the oily residue, he or she can apply a cement-based patch product to fill any existing cracks. Epoxy cab also be used for crack injection and comes in a variety of consistencies, including ultra-thin to a paste-like consistency. These products can be used to address cracks of various widths. Wider cracks require a thicker material. Epoxy can be used for wide cracks and cracks that require structural repair. They may take several hours to cure. The technician can then apply an epoxy coating to level out depressions and leave an impervious surface behind.
