Why You Need GarageFX® Floor Coatings This Summer

With summer upon us in Boise, it's not just the weather that heats up but also the activity in and around our homes—especially in the garage. This space transforms into a hub of projects, storage for outdoor gear, and sometimes even a makeshift workshop. However, the increased use and summer conditions can take a toll on your garage floors.

The team at GarageExperts® of Boise explains why epoxy and polyaspartic flooring is necessary and offer unparalleled protection and aesthetics.

Tackling Temperature Fluctuations

One of the most challenging aspects of summer is the intense temperature fluctuations. In Boise, summer temperatures can get into the 100s. The heat can cause concrete floors to expand during the day and contract at night, leading to cracks and structural damage over time. Epoxy and polyaspartic floor coatings are designed to withstand these temperature variations, providing a durable surface that resists cracking and maintains its integrity despite changing conditions.

Mastering Moisture Control

Summer storms and humidity are notorious for introducing moisture into garages, creating the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. Epoxy and polyaspartic flooring creates a seamless and impenetrable barrier, preventing moisture seepage into the concrete. This moisture resistance not only protects the structural integrity of your floors but also ensures a healthier environment free from mold growth.

Holding Up Against UV Damage

Direct sunlight is another enemy of garage floors, particularly if your garage sees a lot of daylight. UV rays can fade and weaken traditional floor coatings, diminishing their effectiveness and aesthetic appeal over time. However, GarageFX® flooring is UV resistant, ensuring that your floor’s vibrant color and protective qualities remain intact even with direct sun exposure.

Accommodating Increased Use

Summertime means more activities, from home improvement projects to organizing outdoor equipment, resulting in increased traffic and wear on your garage floors. Epoxy and polyaspartic flooring systems are renowned for their durability and ability to withstand heavy use without showing signs of wear. Their tough surface can resist scratches, impacts, and the weight of heavy equipment, keeping your garage floor pristine for years.

Contending with Chemical Spills

Using fertilizers, pesticides, and other harsh chemicals often increases during the summer months. Spills and leaks from these substances can corrode unprotected concrete floors or leave unsightly stains. Our epoxy and polyaspartic floor coatings are non-porous and chemical resistant, allowing easy cleanup without the risk of damage or staining.

Prioritizing Preventive Maintenance

Prioritizing preventive maintenance by choosing high-quality floor coatings is a strategic decision that pays dividends in the short and long term. Our robust floor coatings serve as a formidable barrier against everyday wear and tear, aggressive chemical spills, and the relentless tread of vehicles, ensuring your garage floor stands the test of time.

Furthermore, this approach to preventive maintenance is more than just a measure to protect your floors; it reflects a proactive mindset toward overall home care. By securing your garage floor, you're enhancing its resistance to physical and chemical damage and contributing to your living environment's overall cleanliness and health. Spills are easier to clean, dust is minimized, and the risk of mold and mildew development is significantly reduced.

The decision to invest in these floor coatings is multifaceted, safeguarding your investment in your home, improving its functionality, and elevating its aesthetic appeal—all while promoting a cleaner, healthier living space.

Enhancing Aesthetic Appeal

The beauty of these coatings extends beyond their protective capabilities; they also offer an aesthetic upgrade to your space, available in various colors that can complement any preference. This blend of functionality and style makes choosing the right floor coating essential in maintaining a durable and visually appealing garage.

Whether you prefer a glossy finish that reflects light and brightens up the space or a textured surface that hides imperfections and provides extra grip, these flooring options can elevate the aesthetic of your garage to match your home and style.
