The Benefits of An Epoxy Garage Floor
All across the country, people are having their concrete garage floors treated with epoxy coatings, but why? When comparing the benefits of an epoxy coated floor to those of an untreated concrete floor, it’s easy to see why. Epoxy floors have many benefits over a standard concrete floor, with virtually no drawbacks. Plain concrete floors, while still good, just don’t get the job done as well as their epoxy coated counterparts do. Below are a few great reasons for you to make the switch today.
Epoxy Flooring is Waterproof
Untreated concrete floors are very porous and can suck up water like a sponge. This water can then cause the concrete to expand when the water expands because of changes in the temperature. The result of this expanding water is that the concrete begins to crack and break, getting worse as time goes on. When you treat your floor with an epoxy coating, these pore are sealed up so that water cannot get into the concrete.Now when water is spilled onto it, it simply forms beads, making clean up a breeze.
Longer Lifespans for Your Concrete Floors
Epoxy coatings make cleaning any type of spill up very easy. Once the epoxy has filled in all of the pores of the concrete, a second layer is usually added tor extra strength and durability. This give the floor total protection from the elements, along with better resistance form things that could fall and chip or scratch it. This makes epoxy coating percent for use in garages, where heavy things such as tools are usually found. Epoxy floors also prevent things such as oils and chemicals from seeping into the concrete as well.
Get Rid of That Boring Concrete Look
Concrete is not a very colorful material. In fact, it pretty much comes in dull, flat gray exclusively. While some people may be fine with this color in their homes, many people do not like the look. A great way to change the look of your concrete floor is to have it epoxy coated. An epoxy coating on a concrete floor greatly increases how shiny the floor is, by up to 200% in some cases. So instead of having a dull gray floor, your floors can now shine very brightly. If this isn’t enough, the epoxy surface is perfect to paint in any color you may like. Painting your epoxy floors adds another layer of protection to your concrete floors while also making them much more beautiful.
