Reasons to Use
DURABILITY – In addition to improving aesthetics, epoxy systems harden into tough, smooth, long-lasting finishes that increase concrete flooring’s resistance to vehicle and pedestrian traffic, wear and tear, oil stains, tire marks, gasoline spills, brake fluid spills, and many other chemical and mechanical stresses. Epoxy flooring also hides flaws such as hairline cracks in concrete slabs and minor waviness.
VERSATILITY – Inherently resistant to moisture and water, epoxy flooring offers anti-slip properties. This makes it one of the best options for parking garages and other spaces where rainwater and high moisture levels are present. A cleaning solution, machine, or pressure washer is sufficient for cleaning epoxy coatings. Epoxy flooring also acts as a topical sealant, preventing concrete dust from forming and propagating throughout the parking facility and collecting on the cars.
COST SAVINGS – Don’t just look at the square footage installation costs when comparing different garage flooring options. Although inexpensive flooring products may seem attractive at first glance, they can result in higher lifetime costs, whereas more expensive floors can ultimately save a lot of money over time. As an example, consider bare concrete floors. Regular inspection, cleaning and repair of these floors are essential to keep them in good condition more often than many building owners would expect. Conversely, epoxy floors provide a smooth, glossy surface for easy cleaning, since they seal the concrete base. High-reflective epoxy coatings transmit light over larger areas, resulting in fewer lights being needed and a lower power bill.
