The unfortunate part of our industry remains how many product terms get used interchangeably until they start to confuse homeowners. In the end, even many contractors find themselves slipping up and using the wrong terminology, leading to miscommunication and headaches.
A garage epoxy floor gets built by layering resin, allowing it to begin curing, and then pouring on more product. Once completed, it forms a unified surface, creating more of a hardened block of epoxy than a standard painted topcoat.
However, that process can also take several days, or even longer should the weather take a turn for the worse. When you can’t afford to forgo your garage for more than a long holiday weekend, an epoxy coating becomes ideal.
Once we complete our preparations, as we would a flooring project, we can then merely coat the surface with resin. Not only does it cure and harden faster, but it requires less labor and expense for an affordable home upgrade.
