Garage flooring plays a crucial role in the functionality and aesthetics of your garage. Whether it's time to upgrade your garage flooring or find something better suited for your needs and your garage's use, there are several options to choose from – but not all of them are a good fit.
GarageExperts® of Boise is here to help you dive into the details and discover why our proprietary blend of epoxy and polyaspartic garage floor coating is the best choice for your specific needs and some of the downfalls of other garage flooring systems.
What Makes Epoxy and Polyaspartic Flooring Stand Out?
Epoxy and polyaspartic flooring is a superior solution that combines the strengths of both materials. It leverages the robustness and adhesion strength of epoxy with the UV resistance of polyaspartic coatings.
GarageExperts® of Boise's proprietary Garage FX® Flooring System uses epoxy and polyaspartic and is specifically designed to withstand even the toughest garage use. This system creates a long-lasting, durable, and attractive floor that fuses deeply into the concrete for enhanced performance and adhesion three times stronger than other epoxies. It also comes in 140+ colors, ensuring you can always find the perfect fit!
Comparison with Other Garage Flooring Options
With any upgrade to your space, you want to make sure you're making the best choice. Here's a look at some of the most common garage flooring materials and some pros and cons of each (and why epoxy and polyaspartic continue to be the clear choice):
While plain concrete is an economical option, it's not always the most attractive. It can also be susceptible to cracking and staining when faced with regular garage use. Additionally, plain concrete doesn't protect against oil or other liquids that may leak onto your floor, leading to safety concerns, stains, and more.
While painting your floor may seem like the easiest and most cost-effective solution, it's a relatively short-term fix. Many types of paint aren’t made to handle the wear and tear that come with daily use in a garage.
They peel, chip, and wear easily and leave you with a mess that may not be worth the cost. In addition, you'll have to re-paint often, which adds up over time, making it a less economical option in the long run.
Since it’s waterproof, vinyl is usually used for wet areas and can also be a good option for garages. It's easy to install, but the downside is that it has limited colors and textures available. It's also not very durable, and if you have a spill in your garage, vinyl won't stand up. It will inevitability warp and buckle over time.
Rubber has become a popular option for garage floors because it’s durable, slip-resistant, and comes in various colors. It also absorbs sound, which can be beneficial if you have noise concerns from using power tools or entertaining guests in the garage.
However, rubber is expensive and needs to be re-installed every few years due to fading, cracking, and other wear patterns. It's infamously difficult to clean and can give off a strong odor that's hard to get rid of.
Tile can be used on your garage floor, but it's expensive and requires a lot of work to install. You'll also need to use grout between the tiles, which is hard to keep clean for long periods. On the other hand, vinyl or rubber tiles are easier to install, but they won't last as long and can be slippery when wet.
Solo Epoxy or Polyaspartic
Alone, epoxy and polyaspartic have their pros and cons. Epoxy flooring is durable and comes in a variety of colors, but it's known to peel easily due to poor adhesion qualities. On the other hand, polyaspartic coatings are strong, UV-resistant, and fast-curing – but they can be slippery when wet.
But, when you combine the two, it creates a strong and attractive blend that's designed to withstand the toughest garage use. GarageExperts® of Boise’s Garage FX® Flooring System is specifically formulated with this unique blend, giving you maximum performance and durability for your floor.
