What are Epoxy Coatings?
Before you get started, you should know a little bit about what epoxy coating actually is. Usually, epoxy floor coatings are two part solids bases, solvent or water based. The epoxy flooring is made up of a resin and a hardener, which is like a glue. This level of quality is ideal for a garage floor because of its strength and adherence. Epoxy coating is different from regular garage floor paints because they are not part oil or water based. You should know, however, that not all garage floor epoxy is created equal. Epoxy is not your average painted garage floor.

It is a common misunderstanding that epoxy paints are just like semi gloss or enamel paints. Epoxy floor coatings are in a class all by themselves because they are made from two parts of coating that are mixed together. Epoxy coatings stick to your garage floor, or any concrete floor, much better than any conventional oil paint. With garage floor epoxy coating, your garage floor will look bolder and have a super high gloss finish. No regular paint is able to match that look or strength. Epoxy floor coatings are also nearly stain proof. They are also very easy to clean. Our garage floor epoxy coatings are also designed to last up to twenty years!
