Garage Floor Coating Improves Your Home

Garages are no longer just a damp, dusty place to store unwanted home items and to park your car. They are increasingly becoming a part of the home, and a garage floor coating happens to be one of the best improvements you can make to your concrete floor. Most coatings are epoxy based, which means they are durable and can withstand quite a bit of a beating. Aside from this, coating your garage floor with an epoxy seal will make it resistant to stains and also to tire marks, it will even hide imperfections in your concrete floor.

When choosing a garage floor coating, there are many options available to you. You will first need to decide on the color for the base coat, which can range anywhere from the same dull grey as your concrete, to more vibrant colors such as blue and red. This coating can be topped with quartz or paint chips, giving your garage floor a unique look you will not find anywhere else. If you’re interested in coating your garage floor with a layer of epoxy based coating to protect it and give it a bit more personality, you should know which options are available to you and how they need to be maintained before you decide on a coating.

The most popular option for customization of garage floors is color flakes. Color flakes offer a wide variety of colors and since they are made of acrylic paint chips, they provide an excellent cover for your garage that will not chip or display signs of wear easily. However, if you are looking for a more durable covering that is resistant to drops, then decorative quartz is probably the best flooring option. Quartz floors are mixed into the epoxy and while they don’t offer the same variety of colors that acrylic paint chips do, they are much more resistant than their counterpart.

When choosing the design for your garage floor coating, there are many options for you to consider. Many people want their floor coating to match the inside of their home. If you have marble or tile flooring, this is possible with certain kinds of epoxy. Others want to hide the imperfections in their current concrete flooring. If this is the case, you may not want full coverage of your floor. In this situation acrylic paint coating is probably the best option for you, as it offers a wide variety of color styles without having the expense that quartz flooring has.

Because quartz flooring completely changes the look of the floor, it’s not recommended to do partial coverage in your garage. This type of flooring should be reserved for those who want their garage floor looking the best it can. Regardless of whether you choose this option to hide the imperfections in the floor, the coating provides protection and a return on your investment. It will also increase the value of your home, if you ever decide you want to sell. Because of this, garage floor coating is always a good option to consider in the home improvement department.

One very effective product is Epoxy shield garage floor coating. It has long lasting performance and it protects the floor from such agents as gasoline, antifreeze, motor oil, road salt and hot tire pick up. It is a water based epoxy which means it has low odor and is easy to clean up.
