Everybody loves “clean!” Everything looks and feels better when they’re clean! Our garages are no exception! Many Minnesota homeowners experience a daily rush each time they open their garage door and the first thing they see is their beautiful epoxy coated garage floor.
Certainly “clean” is amongst one of the many benefits of applying an epoxy garage floor coating. Besides giving your garage or shop a whole new ego and personality, you will discover that an epoxy floor coating is one of the most durable and strong finishes that can be applied to your garage or concrete floor. I asked Great Garage Floors owner, Ron Esau, why people have their garage floors done this way. He responded quickly with one, concise word, “Clean!” “People love when their garages are clean!” How else can applying an epoxy floor coating to your garage help you?
Especially a higher quality epoxy coating will be a friend to your garage floor because of its hardened and thick application to your floor’s surface. It acts to help preserve and protect the deprecation of the concrete slab it is applied to. It helps to remediate concrete that has been dilapidated; and repairs and covers cracks, flaws and divots in your floor. Once applied, it remains tough, beautiful and resilient to surface abrasion, chipping, chemicals, salt and stains. Does your concrete have cracks, flaws, divots, or other imperfections? An experienced technician from Great Garage Floors can tell you more about how this process can address your individual floor.
Choices are amongst the benefits, as well, if you are considering applying an epoxy floor coating to your garage. Choosing from beautiful color choices or color combinations make it exciting to create your garage’s new look! Adding a slip resistant aggregate to the coating to establish a non-skid surface can redefine the functionality of the floor you create in your shop, garage or basement, or commercial location.
An epoxy coating is also known for being moisture resistant which helps big time in cold, wintery climates, like Minnesota! This means easy cleanup of road salt and icy brines that live on our garage floors in the winter. A small amount of mild soap and water will clean up a coated floor keeping it shining, looking like new. Removing sand and water with a Shop Vac or other wet vac works easily in keeping your garage floor nice and clean in the winter, as well. The beautiful shine will also return by apply a thin coating of a light wax like Mop N Glo.
An epoxy floor coating is resistant to stains and chemicals, also. This means that leaking oil, anti-freeze, gasoline, or any other of your car’s fluids can be cleaned up easily off your floor. You should be able to simply wipe up any of these fluids regardless of how long they have been there.
Epoxy coatings make your floors tough. Besides the shine and beaming personality of a newly epoxy coated floor, the floor can flex its tough muscles and keep your stress levels down should someone drop a hammer, golf clubs, or your wheel barrow tips over onto the floor. Your floor should come up unscathed from these type of oopses!
So, you’ve got clean, preservation, protection, resiliency to moisture, stains, and chemicals, simple cleanup and maintenance, color and design options, skid-free additives. Now add decent warranties because of how well an epoxy floor coating can wear. If you are considering having this done to your garage, shop, basement, or commercial floor, be sure to inquire when considering what company you want to do the work what kind of warranty they provide.
