The garage in your home is likely a storage spot for some of the biggest, toughest, and heaviest tools and appliances you own. In addition to your car, many garages hold appliances such as water heaters, refrigerators, freezers, washing machines, and clothes dryers, as well as shelves with various chemicals and weighty gadgets.
With all that, it can be impossible to maintain the appearance of your garage floor. Over time, concrete floors in a garage are subject to cracks and chips in the structure, stains from oil and chemical spills, and even water damage in some instances. With that much wear and tear, it can be essential to have epoxy garage floor coatings installed in your home to keep your garage looking as good as new.
Garage floor resurfacing is the ideal and cost-effective way to maintain a pristine appearance in your garage, and Con-tek Coating and Polishing in Windsor, CO, is the best team in Northern Colorado to handle the job.
Windsor residents know all too well how harsh the changing seasons can be when they’re at their worst. The autumn can produce weeks of consistent rain, the summer can bring temperatures up to 100°F, and the winter can seem like the start of a never ending snowfall.
We know how inconvenient it can be to deal with those extreme weather conditions personally, but it can also be a strain on the floor of your garage as well. Cars that have been out in the rain or snow can track moisture from the outside into the garage, leaving the surface open to staining and distortion, and it can even be a safety concern.
If there is enough water, puddles can form on the floor and become a slipping hazard. But epoxy flooring is water-resistant enough to prevent stains and comes with a non-slip finish to make the surface easier to walk on, even while wet. Epoxy garage floor coatings also hold up well against the summer heat.
Standard concrete garage floors can absorb and store heat from the sun, making the temperature of both the floor and the car unbearable. But epoxy flooring is heat resistant and can keep the overall temperature of your garage down in the summer.
Beyond their resistance to water and heat, epoxy garage floor coatings offer many benefits to your garage. If you are looking to improve any aspect of your garage, from the strength and safety of your floor to it matching with the rest of your home’s decor, an epoxy floor coating from Con-tek Coating and Polishing is the option for you.
A garage floor made from concrete is durable, but it is bound to start struggling over time. Eventually, cracks will form on the floor’s surface, stains will settle in, and your garage will be left looking like nothing more than a forgotten storage area.
For as strong as concrete is, it needs help from an epoxy coating to hold up against the conditions a garage floor faces. An epoxy concrete floor stands up strong against the typical cracks and stains that would form without the assistance of a floor coating.
If you have ever wanted to add a bit of color and visual pop to the otherwise drab and lifeless concrete floor in your current garage, an epoxy floor coating is the best way to go.
While a simple coat of paint is one way to meet an interior design goal for your garage, it will not have the added benefits of strength and weather resistance that epoxy floor coatings provide on installation.
Floor coatings are an easy and effective way to give your garage a modern look. A tough layer of epoxy will replace dull concrete and comes in various colors to fit your design vision.
A high-quality epoxy garage floor coating will have a vibrant shine after installation, and luckily, that shine is easy to keep around with standard cleaning and maintenance.
Epoxy floor coatings are easier to clean than a traditional garage floor, which will release particles of concrete over time that are impossible to get rid of completely.
Epoxy will not come with that disadvantage, and regular sweeping will help keep the epoxy’s original appearance. For more problematic spills or deeper cleans, quickly mopping the floor with a mixture of hot water and diluted ammonia will be an effective way to keep your floor looking as good as the day you installed it.
From their durability to their aesthetic appeal, epoxy garage floor coatings come with a wide array of benefits. Although we’ve explored how useful they are for you and your home, we still have not looked at what exactly epoxy garage floor coatings are.
Epoxy floors are more than a layer of paint but are slightly less than an entirely new floor. This flooring solution is somewhere in the middle—a thick, thermosetting resin applied to the top layer of your garage’s original floor that acts as a shield. This coating makes your garage’s floor more robust and resistant to cracks while saving you money on the cost of labor to remove and replace an entire floor.
