Top Seven Reasons to Epoxy Coat Your Garage Floor

  1. Seal and Protect Your Concrete.

Seamless epoxy floors protect your concrete from being attacked by salt corrosion during the winter months. When you drive your car in from a winter storm all of the snow and road salt melt onto your concrete and begin to attack it, causing pitting and cracking. All the various fluids in your car (oil, gas, brake fluid etc.) invariably leak and drip onto the concrete causing deterioration and staining. A high performance, industrial epoxy coating protects your concrete extending the life of your garage floor.

  1. Health & Safety.

Being a porous material, concrete can be a natural breeding ground for mold, mildew, and bacteria. Concrete acts as a sponge and holds moisture causing the damp conditions that are perfect for growing mold and mildew. Epoxy floors are impervious, seamless systems offering no place for mold, mildew or bacteria to grow.

  1. Easy to Clean and Maintain.

Epoxy coated floors are designed for years of high performance and ease of cleaning and maintenance. Regular cleaning will help extend the life of your floor as dirt, dust and grime can cause micro scratches and dull the appearance of the floor. All that is typically needed to achieve a clean floor is mopping with regular water. If a more thorough cleaning is needed, a general floor detergent (or Thermal-Chem’s specialty 1105 ArmorClean Epoxy and Urethane Floor Cleaner) can be used at recommended dilution ratios.

  1. Helps keep your house clean.

Bare concrete can feel dusty and dirty even after sweeping and mopping it. This powdering/chalking at the surface of the concrete is primarily due to the slow deterioration of the weak top layer of the concrete. Vehicle, foot traffic, and even cleaning can make this problem worse. This constant source of dust gets over everything in the garage and then gets brought into the house on the bottom of your shoes. Epoxy coating your garage solves this problem once and for all.

  1. Extends the usable living space of your home.

An epoxy flake floor will turn your once dark and dirty garage into a bright, clean, and aesthetically pleasing place to hang out. Your garage can become an extension of your living space and be turned into a home gym, man cave, workshop, or an extra room for parties and gatherings.

  1. Makes a good first impression.

With attached garages becoming more and more prevalent, garages are becoming the main entrance to our homes. Nobody wants to come home to a dark and dusty entrance. A clean, bright, garage floor makes it more pleasant to come home to and makes a good first impression when having guests over.

  1. Improves resale value.

If you are planning to sell your home, choosing cost effective ways to improve the value of your home are important. You want to make improvements that offer a good rate of return on your investment and having epoxy garage floor installed is a cost-effective way to boost your homes resale value.
