Are you looking for a way to elevate the appearance of your house and increase the property value of your home? There are many ways that you can do that including implementing landscaping, keeping the home’s interior clean, making renovations and clean, polished concrete areas. However, a section of the home that is often neglected by homeowners because it is not on the forefront of their minds would be their garage floors.
Garage floors that are not properly cared for and given a proper coating can get stains or cracks. There are many different types of floor coatings including epoxy floor coating, polyaspartic garage floor coating, chip and flake floor coating, floor paint, etc. We at Silverback Coatings offer all these different kinds of floor coatings and much more. Reach out to us for more information.
What Is An Epoxy Floor Coating?
Epoxy floor coating is one of several ways to seal and protect your garage floor. Epoxy coating can be used on all sorts of different types of surfaces including tile, glass, porcelain, laminate floors, wood floors, and concrete. Epoxy floor coating is a compound of epoxy resin and a catalyst or polyamine hardener. Epoxy coatings are mainly used to help keep floors and other surfaces protected and corrosion free.
An epoxy coating seals surfaces and is great for floors because it lengthens a floor’s useful life. Garage floors particularly benefit from having an epoxy floor coating because epoxy is extremely resilient. With heavy machinery or equipment, such as cars or lawnmowers, it is important that the area where these machines are kept can withstand their weight and size. Garages are obviously the solution that home builders have come up with to store cars. Garages are built large enough to house a car or two, but oftentimes the floors of garages need to be treated in order to fight against the weight of a car over time.
Epoxy Garage Floors
There are several types of epoxy coatings that can be used as treatments for your garage floors. An epoxy coating is a great choice for protecting your garage floors against potential damage. The chemical components of an epoxy coating are great for garage floors because they bond with the floor, creating a shock resistant surface. A garage floor that has an epoxy coating will not only be more durable, but will be better protected from accidental oil spills or chemicals. Without an epoxy coating, chemicals or gas that leaks onto the floor could sink into the surface, either staining the floor or causing the floor to be more susceptible to damage.
Metallic Epoxy Floors
Metallic epoxy floors are another epoxy coating option that can be used on your garage floor. Metallic epoxy coatings are very similar to simple epoxy coatings, except that metallic pigments are added to the epoxy resin component. The pigments catch the light, causing the floor to shine and sparkle. Floors that have a metallic epoxy coating are extremely durable and look strikingly beautiful. There can be all sorts of different colors of metallic epoxy floors, and the patterns that metallic floors come in are always unique.
