Why Epoxy Is Great For Garage Floors

When looking for the right finish for your garage, you should really consider an epoxy finish. This is true for many reasons. Some of these reasons will be highlighted in this article so you can learn what an epoxy garage floor will have to offer. Here's more on epoxy garage floors: 

Epoxy looks good

You'll want a strong finish for your garage floor. However, you can also have a garage floor that looks good at the same time. Epoxy offers a glossy surface that helps the floor look great. You can also prepare the floor before the epoxy is applied by painting it or even staining the concrete. Once the epoxy is applied, the paint or stain will be clear to see since the epoxy offers a clear finish. 

There are other ways you can prepare the floor that can give it a special look. You can get fancy and have decorative color flakes applied to the floor to help give it a creative glimmer. There are also metallic epoxy finishes that have bright colors to them. As an example, you can have metallic blue epoxy used, and the result will be a bright blue floor with a metal look. 

Epoxy is very strong

Epoxy is also one of the strongest finishes you could go for. This is especially important for garage floors since they are often put through more wear and stress. This can be due to things like heavy equipment being moved across them, heavy tools being dropped on them, and more.  Epoxy can even handle having a car driven and parked on it, all the time continuing to protect the floor and looking great. 

This flooring finish is resistant to all kinds of impacts, and it will continue offering you a chip-free, scratch-free, and even stain-free surface for your garage. In fact, thicker applications of epoxy may even be able to help conceal minor pre-existing damage, such as small cracks and chips. This finish is also a great sealer that makes cleaning the floor easier. You can clean up debris, such as dirt, wood chips, and crumbs simply by sweeping. For a more complete cleaning, you can use a mop, water, and a liquid cleaning solution on the epoxy, and this will prevent stains and help bring back the natural gloss of the epoxy that looks so great on the floor.
