6 Reasons Why Epoxy Flooring Is the Best Option for Garages

No matter what you use your garage for, they're put through a lot of wear and tear. That's why it's important to choose a floor coating that can stand up over time and anything you may throw at it – or drop on it.

Time and time again, epoxy flooring is considered the best option to protect your garage floors from damage, grime, and aging. Here at GarageExperts of Boise, we're huge fans of epoxy flooring and help customers get the most out of their epoxy flooring every day.

Below are six reasons why it's the best choice for flooring in your garage.

1. Durability and Strength

One of the biggest sellers of epoxy flooring is how incredibly durable it is. It's made up of a polyurethane-based material resilient to heavy impacts, making it the ideal choice for garages. You'll have protection from:

  • Cracks – Epoxy is placed atop your flooring and is shock resistant, which means that whether you're worried about dropping a heavy tool or driving a vehicle into the garage, you'll know that your floor won't suffer from chips and cracks.
  • Scratches – You won't have to worry about scratches from these impacts either. The epoxy features a hard coating, making it very difficult to scratch or scuff.
  • Stains – Epoxy also does a great job of protecting from liquid materials that often get spilled in a garage. Oil, gasoline, and even antifreeze won't stain the floor once the epoxy is applied.

2. Long Lasting

Another great benefit of epoxy flooring is how long it lasts. Once the epoxy sets, it can last up to 10 years and even longer with the right care. That means you won't have to worry about or spend the extra cost to replace it anytime soon.

Epoxy flooring companies, like GarageExperts of Boise, will also offer a limited lifetime warranty on products, so you can be sure that your investment will be taken care of if something does happen to it over time.

3. Aesthetically Pleasing Customizable Appearance

Whether you're just using it to store tools or turning your garage into a personal hangout, the appearance of the epoxy flooring can enhance any space and achieve any aesthetic you want. Epoxy flooring comes in various colors and styles, making it easy to match the design of your choice!

Some of the most popular choices include:

  • Blended Flakes – The color and specific size of flakes you want can be blended to create a unique look for your floor. This is the most common type of epoxy floor finish.
  • Brindle Flakes – Choosing brindle flakes provides a less uniform look than blended flakes but offers a granite and stone look that's hard to beat.
  • Metallic Mica Flake – Like blended flakes, but sparkly. This style is great if you want a sparkly finish that turns heads.
  • Solid Metallic – Opt for the solid metallic finish if you want a shine and shimmer. Popular choices include antique silver, avocado, and artic pearl.
  • Solid Epoxy – Simple and sleek, it can give your garage a modern look. Popular colors include beige, black, sandstone, and grey.

4. Cost-Effective Solution

Compared to other garage flooring options, epoxy is a cost-effective choice that won't break the bank – especially when considering the cost associated with repairing your current concrete flooring or replacing it entirely.

Epoxy is laid on top of your existing flooring, ensuring that any imperfections or damage is covered and sealed. This includes dents, scratches, stains, cracks, previous oil spills, paint accidents, and more!

5. Low Maintenance and Easy to Clean

Unlike other garage flooring types, epoxy flooring is easy to clean and maintain, requiring only a few simple steps.

Sweeping or vacuuming the floor regularly and cleaning up any spills or debris with warm water and a mild soap is all it takes to maintain your flooring. No polishing, scrubbing, or harsh chemicals are needed to keep your garage looking its best.

6. Easy to Install

Lastly, epoxy flooring can be easily installed, especially when a team like GarageExperts of Boise is helping you. Your garage floor coating can be completed within only a few days, and you'll be able to walk on it in just 24-48 hours.

But just because our Boise garage floor installers make it seem easy, don't try to do it yourself. Proper installation requires a lot of preparation and knowledge, so seek an experienced epoxy flooring company like us!
