As a business owner, you need to make the best investments possible. Commercial coatings for garage floors are crucial as they directly impact your automotive business. A dirty workshop does little to inspire confidence in clients.
While they understand that working on cars means working with messy liquids, they expect you to maintain reasonable standards of cleanliness. For this reason, the old faithful concrete floor no longer cuts it on its own.
Untreated concrete remains too porous to use in an area clients might visit. Concrete sealers help by reducing porosity, but nothing compares to a commercial epoxy floor. Topped with polyaspartic, it offers one of the best commercial coatings solutions on the market.
The Benefits of a Commercial Epoxy Floor
Floor paints and sealants have one significant drawback; they can become easily damaged. You might mar the finish if you spill brake fluid or other chemicals on it. Both paints and sealants are also prone to scuffing and scratching.
Epoxy introduced a new era for floor protection. The formulation resists damage from:
- Scratches, scrapes, and scuffs
- Hot tire pickup
- Heat and steam
It also withstands heavy traffic.
Spill and Stain Resistant
A commercial epoxy floor is waterproof and resistant to most liquids. Grease and oil cannot soak deep into the pores of the concrete and, therefore, cannot stain it. You simply need to clean up the spill using warm water to remove all traces.
Such coatings make it easy to maintain a hygienic work environment.
The primary value of these coatings for your business lies in their durability. The epoxy bonds to the underlying concrete, meaning it won’t chip, flake, or peel. With regular cleaning, it will look as good in ten years as it does today.
Our process involves using a topcoat that filters out UV radiation. Even if your floor bakes in the sun for hours a day, it won’t yellow or fade.
These coatings last, on average, ten to twenty years, depending on the foot traffic.
Restores the Floors Appearance
You might have a grubby workshop floor at the moment and think you have to resurface it. Hang on before you make that call; our process will rejuvenate your flooring. We grind away the dirty surface to reveal the pristine lower layers.
We then apply the commercial coatings and decorative effects you want so that you no longer notice the underlying layer.
Easy to Install
We can lay an epoxy floor in one to one and a half days. You may then move your equipment back in within the next 24 hours.
Would you like to take things up a notch and create a showroom finish? Don’t spend a fortune on marble tiles or other expensive materials. Instead, let our epoxy artists get to work. With your choice of several colors and flake combinations, you can customize your look.
The resultant surface resembles more expensive materials at a fraction of the cost. The epoxy also overcomes the shortcomings of the more costly materials by being hardwearing and stain resistant.
Upgrade Your Protection With a Polyaspartic Top Coat
Polyaspartic material address some of the imperfections in epoxy. The combination of the two gives you the best protection and the best value for your money.
Stronger Than Epoxy
Polyaspartic is far more robust than standard epoxy. Think of it as the diamond coating that can take the most abuse. It takes much effort to scratch this surface.
UV and Fade Resistant
Epoxy yellows and becomes brittle when you expose it to the sun for too long. Polyaspartic contains UV filters that block harmful rays so your floors won’t fade or change color.
Your employee’s safety is no doubt high on your priority list. On its own, epoxy becomes slippery if it gets wet. By adding a polyaspartic commercial coating with aggregate in it, we improve the traction and prevent nasty slips.
The polyaspartic layer also contains an antimicrobial barrier. This barrier stops bacterial growth on the floor and keeps your employees safer.
Every day that you close your business, you lose money. Closing for annual renovations to paint or seal your workshop floor is expensive. Protect your bottom line by installing a low-maintenance epoxy garage floor.
Unlike other flooring types, you will not need annual touchups or specialized cleaning products.
