The answer is simple, nothing, this is because epoxy flooring is affordable and it has all of the perks that you are looking for in a floor. This is why epoxy coating is now quite a popular choice among home owners as well as industry plant owners. So if you are thinking of applying epoxy in your garage but you need to be convinced, then you came to the right place. We are going to discuss some of the reasons that would encourage any one to utilize this kind of floor coverings.

The first thing is that the epoxy floor has the ability to add life to your floor. So if you dislike your current floor because it is dull and gray, covering it with epoxy will make it look bright and shiny, and it will give it a touch of life.  It will not only do that, as epoxy will also make your floors much safer by preventing slipping, which will keep garage accidents to a minimum.

Epoxy also acts as a protective sealant. This is why it is perfect for garage floors as the garage always witnesses spillages that can easily stain other types of garage floor coverings. So by installing epoxy, you can easily wipe the stain without any hassle by using cleaning agents. No need to scrub the concrete floors any more to get a stain out. This is because epoxy is a non porous material, so any stains will not penetrate its pours and will remain on the outer surface so they can be easily cleaned.

This kind of flooring is capable of withstanding and absorbing pressure, which is perfect for garages because they are often subjected to various pressures, whether from the vehicles that are backing in and out of it or from the tools that are usually stored in it.  This is why it is the most commonly used material for garages, industrial plants and airplane hangars and any other space that is subjected to constant and heavy traffic.

On top of all of that, epoxy is quite affordable, which is certainly one of the advantages of this kind of floor coverings.  Not only are they affordable, but they are available at any department store.

On the other hand, implementing epoxy flooring is not a simple task. This is why it is always better to hire a specialist to get the job done for you. All you have to do is tell him what you want exactly because epoxy floors come in different shapes colors.

The specialist will be able to prepare the concrete floors before applying the epoxy by scrubbing it, cleaning it and making sure that there are no debris or grime, this way, when the epoxy is installed, it will adhere to the floors and it will not peel off. Even the installation process itself requires experience and certain tools, two things that a good contractor will have to offer you.
