Garage Epoxy Floor Coatings
Epoxy is a great protective and decorative option for garage floors. You may be asking yourself, “What is epoxy?” Epoxy is a bonding chemical that is made from polymers. A polymer is a large molecule that is comprised of similar units that bind together to make things like plastic, resins and protective flooring. Despite it’s scientifically, complex makeup, it is a simple and affordable way to increase the longevity of your garage floor. Your garage takes quite a beating, day in and day out. It is susceptible to motor oil, gasoline, transmission fluid, mechanical abrasions and cleaning solutions. A beautiful epoxy coating protects your garage floor from damage and deterioration.
Mechanical Abrasions and Cleanliness
Whether you use your garage for storage or play, the floor will take a beating. Sliding toolboxes and equipment across the garage floor will slowly but surely diminish the top layer of the substrate. Chasing after a basketball as it runs away from you while you play a friendly game with your pals in the driveway will surely create skid marks on your immaculate floors. With 2 coats of epoxy, your garage floor will last as long as your house does. Epoxy is not only beautiful to look at, but it also renders a smooth and shiny surface. Dirt is easier to detect and therefore clean.
Waterproofing and Chemical Abrasions
A well applied epoxy will protect your garage floor from all types of liquid spills. It provides a protective barrier that is impenetrable. Spill a tall glass of fruit punch? Don’t worry – epoxy has got you covered. Waste windshield wiping fluid? Even if you forget to clean it up, this mishap won’t damage your floor. Transmission fluid and gasoline will eventually eat through your garage floor. This will lead to premature deterioration. Sooner rather than later, your floor will begin to fissure and crack. It won’t be long before you will need to resurface the entire substrate. Enlist Redondo Beach Epoxy Pros to protect your floor from liquids and chemical abrasions with epoxy.
