5 Reasons You Should Epoxy Your Garage Floor

Your garage is an important utility hub for your home, whether you use it for cars, for your laundry space, for storage or as a workshop. As a multipurpose space, it needs to be easy to use, clean and maintain. To ensure this, you need a flooring solution that stands the test of time. Here’s why epoxy flooring is best for your garage

#1 – Protect and preserve your concrete

Concrete is a tough material, but it can still wear, crack and crumble with use. Salt from your tires, oil or grease spills, and dirt all cause pitting and cracking – as do icy New Jersey winters. High-grade epoxy flooring safeguards your concrete subfloor, keeping it structurally sound as well as ensuring the surface of your garage floor always looks great. It is highly resistant to heat and cold, salt and chemicals, scratches and other external damage, making it an exceptionally good concrete protector.

#2 – Mold repellent

Warm wet weather means mold and mildew – unless you have an epoxy garage floor! Epoxy floors are seamless and moisture-resistant, so nothing seeps in or out. This is unlike concrete, which is surprisingly porous and absorbent, trapping moisture that makes it a great home for mold to grow. Epoxy is also germ-resistant and very easy to clean, keeping your garage hygienic all year round.

#3 – Cleaning is easy 

Speaking of cleaning, to clean your garage’s epoxy floor, all you need to do is give it a quick sweep or vacuum, then mop it down with warm water. That’s really it! If you have a spill that is difficult to remove, spot clean with an old rag using a diluted dishwashing liquid and be sure to rinse the area thoroughly with clean water. For larger spills, it’s safe to clean the floor with a mix of ammonia and warm water (not hot).

#4 – Durable enough to last a lifetime

While epoxy floors harden when dry, they also have a slight flexibility in them. So, if your foundation shifts or you’re experiencing a tough freeze/thaw cycle, there should be no damage. Similarly, you’re less likely to damage the floor with anything you drop because of the slight bounce. It’s a product that’s designed to look great even under heavy wear and traffic, making it perfect for warehouses, car dealerships, and other spaces – and that means it can cope with your garage use exceptionally well.

#5 – Versatility

Concrete is boring and bland, paint will wear and chip – but epoxy floors can be customized to look almost any way you want it to, and stay looking that good for decades. The product can be stained to any color, it can incorporate decorative color flakes to suit your style, or even be textured for a bespoke look. With this option for customization, your garage can reflect the aesthetic of the rest of your home – and is a great way to add value to your property too!
