Garage Floor November 02nd, 2017 - 22:10:46
Epoxy floor paint is used to seal porous cement floors from mold and cracking damage caused by garage spills and ground moisture. It is a must for long-term durability. Used alone it will improve the appearance of your floor, and make cleaning up fast, but painted cement is a hard and slippery surface ill-suited for standing and walking upon. A non-professional can apply epoxy paint, which costs from $2.50-$5 a square foot, but the preparation, mixing and painting is time consuming and difficult. Applied by a professional, the labor costs from $5-$15 and hour on top of supplies. Using additional coverings over a sealed floor will lengthen its life even more.
Epoxy coatings do an excellent job, be it for floors or otherwise. There are various types of epoxy coatings, each prepared for a particular type of treatment and application. Yet they all have a few common characteristics -high resistance to chemicals, extremely durable, high bond strength low porosity, and other chemicals like oils or greases cant seep through them so easily. Irrespective of its characteristics, the paint has to be applied in a professional manner to get the surprising results. The better the floor operation, the better you can expect the results. The floor should be devoid of dust, dirt or debris. Unless the floor is absolutely clean, the paint will not deliver the expected results.
Almost everyone that lives in a house has a garage. But not everyone cares about their garage. And lets be honest, most of the garages dont look too well. Some people really dont care because they think that the garage is only for storage or for the car and that no one can see how the garage looks. However, I am sure that people who spend a lot of time in their garage, usually end up spending a lot of time working on their vehicle, and they do care a lot about how their garage looks.
Then, how one should avoid making their garage as a thrown away room? Epoxy Floor coatings are sturdy and long lasting solutions for any surface. Such coatings provide an ultimate protection and decorative versatility to the floor. As in comparison to the bare concrete floors, epoxy concrete floors require nominal maintenance and offer improved resistance to stains, corrosion and cracks.
