6 Benefits of Installing Epoxy Flooring in Your Parking Garage
Applying a finish to your parking garage flooring can protect it from harsh conditions and extend its lifespan. While several finish options are available for concrete flooring, one of the most effective is epoxy. Epoxy coatings will give your garage flooring an eye-popping shine and beautiful glow that stands up to the toughest wear-and-tear.
The Benefits of Epoxy Floors in Miami
Plain concrete flooring is utilitarian but rarely aesthetic. Epoxy coatings add not just protection but beauty. Pigments, dyes, flakes, granules, and other additives can be mixed into the epoxy to create a variety of visual effects. You can create virtually any look you want with:
• Epoxy quartz
• Epoxy chip
• Metallic epoxy
• Solid epoxy
The glossy epoxy surface is flexible and strong and can withstand even heavy daily use while maintaining its beauty and shine.
Epoxy flooring is aesthetically appealing, but that is not its primary function. Once it hardens, it forms a smooth, tough, long-lasting seal that protects the concrete beneath from abrasions, impacts, stains, tire marks, fluid spills, and other wear-and-tear that would otherwise damage bare concrete. It is resistant to temperature extremes and adverse weather, too, making it the ideal flooring for Florida, which is known for its high heat, humidity, and heavy rains.
Epoxy is applied directly over new or existing concrete floors and covers small flaws, such as minor anomalies, cracks, and worn areas. It is naturally resistant to moisture and water and has anti-slip properties that improve traction for both foot and vehicle traffic. Once applied, it prevents further degradation and eliminates concrete dust.
While the initial costs of epoxy flooring may be higher than concrete alone, its lifetime costs may end up saving you in the long term. Epoxy floors protect the underlying concrete, reducing the need for repairs and maintenance. Cleaning and upkeep are minimal, and the reflective nature of the epoxy can even help reduce your lighting costs.
Epoxy is smooth and non-porous, which makes it easier to clean and maintain than concrete and similar flooring materials. Simple dust mopping or sweeping is typically all you need, and spills can be cleaned up with soap and water.
Installation Speed and Simplicity
Epoxy is easy to prepare and install and can go over your existing flooring. After cleaning the concrete, we can quickly and effectively apply the epoxy, which has minimal downtime in normal conditions.
