When it comes to your garage floor, it can be a little difficult figuring out what material would work best with your garage needs. Because its main function is to house the vehicles and possibly be an extra space for storage, the garage is one of the last areas of the house to get any decorating attention. While there are several ways to set up a garage floor, one of the most common is an epoxy floor. You’ve probably already seen this type of floor in the stores you visit regularly, the local mechanic, doctors offices, and more. These floors are wonderful for a variety of reasons and this is why you need them in your own home.

  • Durability: One reason why you see epoxy flooring in high traffic areas like a store is because of how durable it is. It’s resistant to chips, chemical spills, and other damage that might happen because of dropped tools and such.
  • Protection: Epoxy flooring is actually a protective layer over the cement of the garage floor. On its own, cement can be somewhat temperamental and easy to damage. The protective layer of the epoxy means you won’t have to replace that cement for a very long time.
  • Increased Property Value: Home improvements always boost the value of your home and the garage floor is no exception. An epoxy floor looks extremely professional and, usually, people are willing to pay a little more for it.

  • Hypoallergenic: One of the huge reasons why you see epoxy flooring in doctors offices and hospitals is because it’s easy to clean and it’s hypoallergenic. Dust, debris, and dirt have a hard time sticking to the surface. It’s very easy to clean and perfect for allergy sufferers
  • Safety: Epoxy is a non-slip material despite how shiny it looks. It’s also fire resistant which is ideal if you like using the garage as a workshop of sorts as well.
