Why Epoxy Floors?
Perfect for Garage Flooring
Since it is both chemical and stain resistant; oil, brake fluids, anti-freeze, gasoline, and other car chemicals can easily be wiped up even if it sits for a while. Rolling tool boxes, jacks, and jack stands will not damage the floor either. It also brightens up the garage environment because it is very light reflective depending on what type of finish you choose.
Another reason for epoxy is that is creates a cleaner environment. Customers do not realize how much dust in a garage is created from the powder that a cement floor can shed. Normal traffic on bare concrete can kick up this dusty powder that has a tendency of collecting on cars, tool benches, and storage items, as well as being tracked into the house. As a coating, epoxy is also naturally moisture resistant. Just a little mild soap and water is all it takes to have a clean, safe environment.
Safety is the most important part of our lives. With epoxy there is a concern for a slippery surface. For people who live in drier climates this usually isn’t an issue. If you want some extra grip however, you can add slip resistant aggregate to the final coat that will create a non-skid surface.
