Epoxy on Garage Floor

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.

Proper preparation of the concrete surface also includes diamond grinding. This process opens the pores of the concrete surface making it ready to accept the epoxy coating.

Proper diamond grinding also enables the first layer of epoxy coating to penetrate deep into the concrete surface to ensure a lasting finish.

Flake Epoxy on Garage Floor

Flake epoxy on garage floor is one of the most preferred epoxy coatings of Southern Illinois Epoxy customers. Flake epoxy has superior wear and scratch resistance. It also has superior anti-slip properties and is easy to clean. It cures fast and has high aesthetic appeal as well.

Flake epoxy is available in a wide range of colors. If you want something unique and one of a kind, you can go for customized blends. Flake epoxy can also be used to create personalized logos on your garage floors.

Flake epoxy on garage floor is designed to look beautiful and stay beautiful for a long period of time.

Metallic Epoxy on Garage Floor

A combination of metallic effects creates a unique marbled epoxy on garage floor. We use top quality metallic in various colors and effects as well as advanced techniques to achieve an artistic one-of-a-kind floor.

Metallic epoxy is a coating system that incorporates a metallic additive into clear epoxy coating. The metallic additives move through the epoxy during the curing process to create stunning effects.

The final result of metallic epoxy on garage floor depends on the application technique used by the installer and how the metallic pigment moves on the surface. Thus, even when the same color pigment is used on both floors, the process will not achieve the same exact look.

Epoxy on Garage Floor Colors

You have unlimited color options for your Epoxy garage floor. While your personal preference dictates your choice of colors, there are some factors that come into consideration. It is important to realize that color plays a major role in the overall appearance of your garage.

Epoxy on garage floor is available in a wide variety of basic solid colors, customized color blends, and designs and textures to meet your aesthetic requirements. As can be seen, the challenge lies in choosing the right color.

We at Southern Illinois Epoxy can help you choose the right epoxy coating color based on these factors:

  • Lighting Conditions. A similar color will not appear the same when used on different garages because of the different lighting conditions. A well-lit garage can use any epoxy color. A not so well-lit garage will be better off with light colors because they can make a room look brighter.

  • Wall and Decor Colors. Your choice of epoxy color should complement the existing look of your garage. Your garage floor should always look as though it is an extension of your home. If you want to be on the safe side, you can go for white, off-white, black or gray.

  • Effect on your Mood. If you want your garage to have a warm ambiance, go for the shades of orange and red. If on the other hand you want a refreshing and calm atmosphere, the shades of green and blue are perfect.

  • Color of your Car. You may find this funny but since your car is the star of the garage, choose a color that will complement it. Black epoxy floors go well for red cars while dark colors look good with white cars.

You can certainly also mix and match different colors to create a personalized palette for your epoxy on garage floor coating.
