If you’ve been considering painting your garage floor to get a nicer appearance, you should know that aesthetics could be the only benefit you get whereas there is another option with far more benefits – epoxy floor coating. While some paints may have some epoxy in them, only a true epoxy floor coating will give you these benefits:
- Epoxy floor coating cures, giving superior durability and strength. It bonds to a well-prepared surface rather than lying on top of it like paint does.
- The added durability and strength makes it resistant to chemicals, stains, impacts, abrasion, and chipping. Your garage floor goes through significant abuse, but you’ll no longer need to worry about a dropped wrench damaging your garage floor. In fact, you’ll be able to roll around your tool box and other equipment without fear.
- It will be far easier to clean your garage floor as an epoxy floor coating is naturally moisture resistant. You’ll only need a bit of soap and water to clean up even the messiest spills and leaks from vehicles.
- You can also create a non-skid surface by adding a slip resistant aggregate to the epoxy floor coating. This is ideal in wet climates or when laundry facilities and other wet uses could make your garage floor slippery.
