There are many misconceptions out there as to what epoxy flooring is.
While it may seem similar to paint in concept, it actually is not paint, and, epoxy flooring has many benefits that paint may not provide.
Colorado Paint Pros would like to clear up any misconceptions, and help to educate the world about the benefits and uses of garage epoxy flooring.
In particular, getting epoxy on your garage floors could be extremely beneficial if you are looking for something durable, tough, and also give shine to your otherwise dull garage or basement.
Nowadays, garages are being converted and used for things other than storing your cars. Some people convert their garages into offices, music studios, and other modern uses. In these cases, curing epoxy floors onto your otherwise unattractive and cold cement floors can make a huge difference in transforming your garage into a shiny and clean showroom for whatever your needs and interests.
And what is epoxy?
Epoxy is an actual thermosetting resin that is applied as a coating. It is formed when you mix one part epoxide resin with one part polyamine hardener. The hardener acts as a catalyst and is what gives epoxy its strength.
The thicker coating of epoxy flooring in your garage also does a great job of covering over minor imperfections such as small cracks and dings in the concrete. Because epoxy is a topical sealer, it is also protects against dust. Dust commonly found in a garage comes from the powder that cement floors can shed.
And most importantly, in a state such as Colorado with its snowy climate, epoxy is a topical coating that is naturally moisture-resistant. Epoxy garage flooring makes for easy cleaning of icy brines and road salts that can collect on the garage floor during the winter. Just a little mild soap and water is all it takes.
More and more, we are seeing people getting garage epoxy flooring, and are finding that they are able to transform their garages into live-able, workable, enjoyable spaces and creating so much more room for their home living experience.
