Most garages in Southern Illinois are more than just a place to park cars. Many family activities are now being done in garages including, do-it-yourself projects, the laundry and even some entertainment activities. As can be seen, the garage receives a lot of daily torture.
Epoxy coating is one of the most durable finishes that can be applied to a garage floor. It not only protects concrete, it also transforms ugly and dull concrete into a beautiful floor. As a result, epoxy on a garage floor is fast becoming one of the best options for garage flooring.
Solid Epoxy on Garage Floor
Solid epoxy is the most basic epoxy coating available. It produces floors that are easy to clean, does not collect dust, resistant to rust, gas, and oil spots. More importantly it has a high aesthetic appeal and is easy on the budget.
Solid epoxy on garage floor is a mixture of a resin and hardener that bonds with the concrete floor due to a chemical reaction. Prior to the application of an epoxy coating, the concrete surface first needs to be properly prepared.
We at Southern Illinois Epoxy believe that with proper concrete surface preparation, we have already accomplished half of the job. The other half is the proper application of the epoxy coating.
Concrete surface preparation gets rid of all the dust, dirt, existing sealants and other contaminations that may affect the proper bonding of the epoxy material with the concrete surface.
