One of the things a homeowner can choose to do is have epoxy applied to the floor of their garage. Homeowners who choose this option are always surprised by the number of benefits it offers. Epoxy is a tough, extremely versatile option which is easy care and will make the garage safer, cleaner, and more attractive at an affordable price.
Easy to clean
Because the epoxy is smooth, it repels all car fluids, tire marks, and other incidentals which typically mar the floor of a concrete garage. Epoxy also covers surface flaws, making the whole surface stay cleaner because there are no cracks or crevices where dirt can lodge. Because it’s smooth, it also reflects light better, making the space brighter. A few swipes of a dust mop will usually take care of any surface dirt, automotive fluids wipe up quickly, and an overall mopping now and then will make the epoxy gleam.
No concrete dust
One of the drawbacks of concrete flooring is that concrete creates a lot of dust because of its composition. Once it’s covered with epoxy, concrete no longer produces the typical garage dust which covers anything stored in the garage, such as cars, boxes, tools, or a washer/dryer, in a layer of concrete dust. Because it’s no longer a problem, the dust which used to enter the home through the connecting garage door no longer wafts inward to add to the cleaning of the house.
Epoxy offers non-slip protection for those who aren’t quite as steady as they used to be, making it a terrific option for seniors, especially if they enjoy puttering around out in the garage or have their laundry facilities or hobbies stored there. Since epoxy reflects light, the area is brighter, making everything more visible.
One of the things about epoxy is that it is an economical means of achieving a clean, long-lasting surface. There is no need to replace tiles or regrout. Its impervious to stains, spots, and odors. It can be swept and mopped but requires very little more in the way of maintenance, which adds to its affordability.
Epoxy comes in many colors and styles, meaning a variety of looks are available. Not only that, but the sharp, stylish look of epoxy will cover imperfections in a concrete floor, making the garage look upscale and trendy. The finish is durable, so it will last for several decades if it isn’t abused. Its one of the most economical means available to make an entire garage look exceptional and eliminate the need for constant cleaning of the contents. It is an excellent investment which offers a considerable return both by providing ease of living and in appeal if the homeowner decides to sell the property.
