For many homeowners, the garage is a versatile space that is used for many reasons. From being used for storage to a workshop location, a garage can acquire a lot of wear and tear over the years. To keep your garage floor looking great, consider coating it with epoxy. Here are some of the benefits of epoxy garage coatings

The first thing to know about Epoxy is that it’s not paint. Instead, it is a latex acrylic product used for coating floors. There are some paints however that have small quantities of epoxy mixed into it to make it more durable. These are called epoxy paints. Epoxy is created by mixing epoxide resin with polyamine hardener. The result is a finish with extra strength and durability. One benefit of epoxy coating is that it is easy to clean. The coating is not porous and it seals the floor entirely. This means that with just a little routine sweeping and mopping, you can keep your floor looking like brand new. Because of the strength of this coating, it is also stain resistant, which is especially helpful in garages. If you spill car oil or other chemicals, it can be easily wiped away. Without an epoxy coating, these spills may lead to irksome stains but all this can be avoided with an epoxy coating. 

Over time, garage floors tend to acquire scratches, scuffs and cracks. This can happen for a variety of reasons such as dropping heavy tools or moving large objects across the floor. Epoxy coating is extremely strong and can resist even the heaviest objects, being easy to maintain. This means that you can use your garage and not have to worry about doing any damage to the floor. Epoxy coating is a budget friendly option for keeping your garage floor protected and stain free. Contact West Coast Deck Water Proofing for a Quote today!
