What Type Of Epoxy Is The Best Choice For Your Garage Floor?

If you want a new garage floor, you have probably watched youtube videos or seen pinterest pictures of amazing garage floors. They exist, and we install them with 100% pur epoxy coating. If you get a garage floor that has a waterbased paint or an epoxy that is mixed with paint, then it will not withstand the test of time and you may end up in trouble down the road with peeling or decay on your new floor.

How to Choose the Best Epoxy Coating

100% solids epoxy coating is a floor system made from pure epoxy that will bond to concrete and remain durable for as long as the concrete is in tact. It’s also non-porous which means that bacteria and other contaminants can not grow in it (this makes it great for restaurants and other food-related businesses as well as industrial settings). 

Epoxy flooring is very common for garage floors. If you want a very strong and long-lasting garage floor, epoxy is your best bet, but make sure that you have the right type of epoxy. You can do it on your own but for the best result better hire an expert. There are several types of epoxy and you should choose based on what kind of flooring you have, cost and your preference.

Here some of the choices:

Water-Based Paint

This is the cheapest epoxy option, easy to apply and non-toxic but also the least durable, it is not long lasting. Probably not the best type for industrial use or anything you want to have last longer than one year.

Two-Part Solvent-Based

This is an epoxy that is mixed with paint. It is slightly better than garage floor paint but not by a lot. You can expect this less expensive floor to work for a year or two but when you drive over it with hot tires in the summer, it will come up and peal. This is the standard DIY epoxy kit.

Two-Part 100 Percent Solids

The best choice to have a durable sturdy floor. This type cures through chemical procedures that creates hard, tough and beautiful surfaces. This is the most used type of epoxy coating because of its quality, it will make your floor stronger than before. This high-quality flooring is chemical and abrasive resistant.

Flake Epoxy Garage

This is a 100% solids epoxy that has vinyl chips broadcast (tossed and scattered) into it with a clear coat of epoxy applied on top. This is an extremely durable floor that works very well for garages and might not ever need to be applied again in your lifetime.

Metallic Epoxy Garage Coating

Metallic Epoxy garage coatings are a work of art. The different colors are chosen ahead of time and mixed and then applied throughout the garage floor. They are truly a one-of-a-kind floor.
