If you’re looking to give your old garage a makeover, one of the first steps may be to upgrade your flooring. While fresh, new concrete can make a stark difference, it doesn’t take long for it to wear and become a real eye-sore.
At EncoreGarage, we have a cleaner, more aesthetically pleasing alternative for our Farmingdale, Parsippany-Troy Hills, and Wall Township, NJ, customers: epoxy. Let’s see what a difference it can make.
Longer Lasting Flooring
If you’re not familiar with the uses of epoxy, then there’s one key facet you need to understand. Epoxy isn’t paint. Rather, it’s a resinous material, used as sealant on concrete flooring.
When concrete is cast with a nice, thick epoxy seal, a lot of that wear immediately disappears. Whereas concrete can crack over the years, either from temperatures or from repeated foot traffic and vehicle use, epoxy stands up to the test of time.
Choosing epoxy flooring eliminates the needs to constantly redo your floors. In the long run, that makes it the more economical option.
Epoxy: A Cleaner Option
For some, the garage is a cluttered, dusty room that all too often shows the marks of its age and use. However, you’re looking to move away from that, aren’t you? Fortunately, epoxy doesn’t just impart a cleaner look, it’s also easier to sweep up and maintain.
Concrete is a porous material. Over time, it will soak up liquids and grime, leaving unsightly stains in your flooring. Epoxy, on the other hand, is sealed up tight. Spills and dirt are as easy as pie to sweep away.
Heighten Your Garage Safety
If your garage has the right look and space, it becomes a comfortable room that you and your family may end up spending a lot of time in. With epoxy flooring, it will actually be far safer for all of you, as well.
Epoxy is resistant to many substances, such as liquids and chemicals. However, it’s also resistant to slippage. You shouldn’t have to worry about those unavoidable slips and falls so much with epoxy coating.
Give Your Garage a Sharper Look
So, we’ve run down the more practical benefits of choosing epoxy flooring for your garage. However, this pragmatism isn’t the be all end all. Your garage can and should have a trendy look to it as well.
This is where one of epoxy’s major benefits comes in. While plain concrete may come across as a little drab, epoxy has a distinct shine to it and comes in a variety of different patterns and colors. That way, you can have just as many aesthetic benefits with your flooring.
