Whether you’re building a new home or overhauling your garage, understanding the types of flooring available and their benefits is crucial. There are a myriad of options to consider, but epoxy flooring is by far and wide one of the most commonly chosen options. There are five primary reasons for why so many individuals choose to use garage floor epoxy.

1. Durability and Longevity

Epoxy is, without a doubt, the king of durability. It will stand the test of time and plenty of heavy use that it may endure which makes it ideal for high-traffic areas, such as a garage. This longevity means that you don’t need to stress about an epoxy floor giving way when faced with general wear and tear, chemical spills, or even some heavy impacts to a certain degree.

2. Easy to Clean and Maintain

When applied, epoxy floor coating completely seals with the underlying concrete which makes it very easy to clean. Epoxy flooring was originally intended to be used for industrial spaces, but it’s repurposing for residential needs means you can enjoy the benefits of its easy maintenance. Most epoxy floors can simply be hosed off and they will appear brand new, but a warm mop can also take away many of the problematic stains.

3. Chemical Resistance

As alluded to earlier, epoxy coatings are also chemical resistant. This is particularly helpful in a garage where your flooring may be subject to motor oil spills, gasoline spills, gear oil, general solvents, or potentially stronger substances such as acid. Epoxy is also resistant to long-term staining, meaning even if you can’t deal with a chemical spill right away you don’t need to worry about it setting into the floor.

4. Enhanced Aesthetics

Let’s be honest: epoxy flooring just looks slick, especially epoxy flake floors. While the slightly reflective appearance of epoxy flooring may look aesthetic, it also has practical value. One enhanced aesthetic of epoxy flooring is the fact that it is slip-resistant, which is particularly helpful when getting out of your vehicle or working somewhere in your garage.

5. Resistance to Moisture and Cracking

Finally, epoxy flooring is often chosen for garage spaces due to its resistance to moisture as well as cracking over time. Regardless of where the moisture may be coming in from, epoxy flooring is resistant to damage from water or other liquids. In addition to this, it is not prone to cracking over time either which means you won’t need to pay ongoing maintenance costs for repairs.

Choose the right garage flooring!

Choosing the right type of flooring for your garage can make or break the entire space. While many types of flooring will suit basic needs, epoxy flooring goes above and beyond in providing benefits that other floors do not. Epoxy flooring can be more expensive than other types of flooring, but the benefits of making this choice often far outweigh the cost for most people.
