6 Tips for your Garage Paint Project

Your garage is your personal retreat and is a place for you to come and be alone to do what you like to do best – work on your latest project, take care of your pride and joy vehicle, reflect on where you want to go with your life without having to worry about being interrupted. So take a little time to make your garage a space where you can feel comfortable and at ease. Take a look at the following list of topics on how garage paint can help you maximize your enjoyment of the time you spend there.

1. Improve your resell value – Having a shop with a great look and feel is one of the things that new homeowners search for. Putting on a new garage wall paint will brighten the space, and garage floor painting with an epoxy floor paint will smooth out an old cracked and worn cement floor.
2. Protect your floors and content – adding epoxy garage floor paint to your garage will help to seal the concrete. It acts as a water barrier to decrease moisture coming in through the floor. Concrete acts like a sponge for many years after being poured. Sealing the floor will help to protect both your floor and garage content from the damages of damp and moisture.
3. Increase your lighting – getting additional lighting will help to make the work space in your garage more productive. It will increase your enjoyment of using it for home improvement projects. And with a fresh coat of paint on walls and floor, more of the light will be reflected into the space, rather than being absorbed by dark and drab colors.
4. Easier to keep clean – Adding garage floor paint will help you to keep your work space and home cleaner, since it’s easier to clean up spills and sweep up debris from a floor with an epoxy coating applied to it. When your car leaks fluids or you spill during a repair or maintenance, it’s nice to know that you won’t be tracking it everywhere. You’ll be able to clean it up off the floor.
5. Safety – you’ll definitely want to consider applying a coating of garage floor paint if you have an older cracked or broken concrete slab in your garage. Garage paint that contains epoxy is typically self leveling. Once you’ve applied it, you won’t have to worry about tripping or catching your foot on the uneven sections of the floor.
6. Customization – if you’ve been considering how to better display your restored car when you have it in your garage, then you definitely want to think about garage paint. You can get epoxies in a wide variety of colors to match and compliment the paint job of your rig. And best of all, you can add a fleck to the paint that will add interest, sparkle or shine to your garage floor that will really create a stunning venue for your vintage vehicle.
With all these reasons to update your space with garage paint, it’s easy to see the benefits of putting in a little effort. Paint projects are easy to do on your own and are not too costly, especially when you consider the increased enjoyment you’ll feel on every project you work on in your new space.
