Cement garage floors commonly develop cracks over time, usually from the weight of the cars and from changes in temperature. There’s not much you can do about it once it happens, and it looks awful. One of the benefits of epoxy garage flooring is that it’s able to withstand these things. The epoxy is made with resins that are stronger than cement. These floors are designed to be impact-proof, so the cars won’t cause cracking. This durability keeps it strong throughout time, so years after you install the epoxy garage floors, they’ll still be smooth, making your garage look new.
Another problem people commonly run into is the stains that build up on their cement garage floors. The dripping from the cars cause stains on the floor, chips appear because of dropped tools in the garage, and paint stains end up there as well because of messy home improvement projects. You can scrub as long as you want will cement floors, and the stains will still be visible. With epoxy garage floors, all you have to do is wet the floor, and wipe it off, and then the floors will be looking clean again! Cement garage floors also tend to look dirty soon after they get cleaned- that’s because they shed powder over time. The epoxy garage floors will keep your garage looking clean, refreshed, and neat.
The epoxy garage flooring costs more than cement floors, but there’s no contest that it’s the best looking choice. You have options for types for finishes, from neutral colors, to bright red, to chip-finishes. These keep your garage looking new for years to come, and can really refresh the space! Since they’re easy to clean, you can keep them looking new!
