Why Epoxy Is The Best Garage Floor Coating

One of the toughest and most durable finishes that you can apply to a garage floor is an epoxy coating.  Not only does it protect your garage floor, but it can instantly transform your boring or ugly or damaged cement into a professional looking floor.

Epoxy is used for both commercial as well as residential applications.  Epoxy coatings come in a variety of colours.

What is garage floor epoxy?

Garage floor epoxy is NOT paint.  Epoxy is more durable, stronger and longer lasting.  Epoxy consists of two parts, part one is a resin and part two is a hardener which gets mixed together causing a strong, long lasting floor coating.

Benefits of a garage floor epoxy coating?

Besides epoxy looking much beter than paint, the hardened, thick application is very durable and resilient to impacts, chipping, chemical spills, stains, and surface abrasion.  Chemicals such as oil, brake fluids, anti-freeze, petrol or diesel can simply just be wiped up.  Epoxy also helps to hide those minor imperfections in the cement.  Cleaning a floor has never been this easy, use a soft boom and then go over the floor with water and a mop.  You can even create a slip resistant surface.  Epoxy Garage floors do not pick up when you park a car with hot tires on it.

Good floor preparation is important to help the epoxy coating last longer.  A primer is applied before an epoxy coating is applied.
