If you are looking for new and improved flooring for your garage floor, epoxy coatings are the answer! This type of flooring is innovative and has come a long way, so if this is something you are interested in, the following are some of the best garage floor epoxy systems in the market:
If you are familiar with this type of flooring, you are likely used to the standard gray base with the black and white flakes. While this option is available, contractors are now offering more options, so you will get to choose from a full-colour spectrum for base coat colours and will also have the option of mono-coloured or multi-coloured flakes that you can have installed into the system. These flakes offer more than just an attractive finish and are actually used to give the epoxy texture, which makes this flooring safer and easier to walk on whenever it becomes wet or soiled. This makes it an ideal choice for those with hobbies and at-home mechanics because you will get both safety and an attractive appearance.
This type of flooring is growing in popularity because of its price point and its appearance. Metallic epoxy contains an additive of metallic pigmentation, which is part of the 100% solid epoxy system. This pigmentation is then manipulated after it is laid on the floor with solvents, brushes and blowers and these types of manipulation allow the system to take on different looks, including that of waves, clouds and lava, for example.
This is one of the newest forms of garage floor epoxy systems and is achieved by laying down a layer of self-leveling primer, after which the desired image is installed, followed by the placement of a clear epoxy system over the image so that it is protected in the garage. This option is very unique because you will be able to choose a 3D floor design, its colour and its pattern to amplify its effect with an epoxy to make the room appear larger than it actually is. This system will allow you to be creative in terms of design, and your flooring will get a lot of attention.
If you are after the strongest flooring system in the market, this option is right for you. These systems are used to create a finish that is high on traction, and the multi-layer process of the installation is what makes it strong. These coatings can be used in both commercial and residential garages because they can resist impacts, abrasions, chemicals and temperature flexibility. You can also customize the base colour and quartz pigments, so you will have a variety of choices.
