You love your garage and what it offers you. It’s a place where you can get away from the noise of the city, do some repairs on your car and enjoy a little peace and quiet. But it could be so much more! You want to create a space that is inviting for family members, workmen or friends alike. That means giving up the dirt and grime of an unfinished garage floor in favor of something cleaner like epoxy floor.
Epoxy flooring is a durable and easy to maintain surface that you can enjoy for years. The advantages of this type of garage floor are numerous: it’s water resistant, which means spills wipe up quickly and your family won’t be exposed to the chemicals in those cleaners; there will be no dust with an epoxy garage because particles stay locked down in the clear coat; and it’s easy to install.
There are various types of epoxy available for purchase, and you should match your flooring to the life cycle that is best suited – residential or commercial. There’s also a variety of colors to choose from so it will go with any garage décor.
In order to get the most out of your new epoxy, you should consider adding insulation under the slab and using a sealant or top coat on areas with heavy foot traffic. The cost of installation ranges from $25-$150 per square foot but it’s an investment that will last for decades.
When you’re ready to turn your garage into a luxurious retreat, epoxy is the only option! You can purchase it in kits or by the gallon and apply it yourself with common tools found around the house. It’s not too late to get started on transforming your old dirt floor today.
