Too many garage floors in the Westchester area often look old and worn. When they’re just ‘naked’ concrete, they soak up dirt and spills like a sponge, leaving permanent stains whenever anything spills. Plus, since concrete is brittle, it can be surprisingly easy to crack or otherwise damage. That’s why more and more homeowners in Westchester are turning to epoxy floor painting services!
Epoxy floors have been standard in working garages for a long time, but now homeowners are seeing the benefits of epoxy coating. Here’s why.
The Benefits of Epoxy Floor Painting Services
Epoxy flooring is a blend of fast-hardening materials that bind easily with concrete and give it an extremely strong upper layer on top of the concrete.
Long lasting. An epoxy garage floor is excellent at resisting damage and can extend the lifespan of your concrete by years or decades. The epoxy itself also lasts a long time, typically taking at least ten years before needing to be reapplied.
Strong. Epoxy is one of the strongest floor surfaces and is particularly good at resisting crushing damage. If you have heavy vehicles like big pickups or Hummers, this will do a lot to protect your concrete floor.
Stain-resistant. Epoxy is resistant to most common substances found in garages, like motor oil. Strong acid – like pool acid – can damage it, but not much else can eat through the coating. So, you don’t have to worry about staining your floor whenever you’re doing an oil change or otherwise working on your vehicles.
Easy to clean. Epoxy is remarkably low maintenance. Pretty much all you need is basic soap and water. It just mops up, like a vinyl or linoleum floor – while being much harder and stain resistant. One warning here: never use harsh abrasives, as they can damage the surface.
Attractive. A basic epoxy pour is transparent, but you can get epoxy blends in virtually any color you like, and with a wide variety of textures as well. You can even get a faux-stone mix that mimics the look of a speckled rock like granite.
