The Ideal Parking Garage Flooring Solution
Parking garage flooring systems have come a long way from plain, lifeless-looking concrete. Your tenants and customers expect more from their living spaces, and that extends to their vehicles, too. Give them what they want with a parking garage flooring system that wows, a flooring system worthy of a showroom floor.
Epoxy Traffic Deck Coating Systems
Epoxy can be installed over your existing concrete or new concrete flooring, but it can involve more downtime for your facility. However, the benefits are well worth the investment and downtime, including:
1. Greater Durability
Epoxy flooring systems harden to form a strong, smooth seal that is resistant to the kind of high traffic environmental damage that most garages see, including fluid spills, tire marks, impacts, grit and abrasion damage, and temperature extremes. Even better, epoxy covers small damage, such as minor irregularities and hairline cracks, extending the lifespan of the existing concrete flooring.
2. Greater Functionality
Epoxy flooring is naturally resistant to moisture and water damage, making it ideal for parking garages. Furthermore, epoxy has built-in non-slip characteristics and is easy to clean using pressure washers, machines or epoxy-specific cleaners. When used as a sealant with concrete flooring, it prevents future concrete degradation and protects against concrete dust forming and collecting.
3. Greater Affordability
Epoxy flooring might seem more expensive than some other types of flooring systems at first glance. However, inexpensive flooring systems often cost more over the lifetime of the floor, thanks to inspection, cleaning and repair costs. Epoxy flooring systems are easy to clean and maintain and preserve the underlying floor system. Furthermore, the highly reflective coating can reduce your lighting costs.
Polyurethane Traffic Deck Coating Systems
Polyurethane coatings can also be a good choice for parking garage flooring systems. Polyurethane coats the underlying concrete system to prevent deterioration, which improves overall safety and extends the lifespan of the floor as well. Polyurethane garage floor coatings are easy to clean, and the surface is waterproof, eliminating the need for special routines or maintenance procedures. Once applied, polyurethane is strong and durable even under the weight of heavy vehicles, moving traffic and daily use.
