Even though its name sounds like something out of science fiction, epoxy is a surprisingly useful product. It is a coating that you paint over top of concrete, especially in garages, to increase the floor’s appearance and durability. Garage floor epoxy coating will resist the spills and chemicals that are common in the garage but tend to dissolve and chip away at regular paint. Just think, your garage floor is constantly being subjected to water, salt, oil, household chemicals, and traffic, so keeping it in good condition can be a challenge. Epoxy comes in a variety of colors so that you can customize the look of your floor while also improving its overall quality. It also is very easy to clean and will hold up its value and appearance for many years. Even though it looks nice, it can be difficult to install all on your own. Not all concrete floors are the some, and some will not allow the coating to bond. No matter what kind of concrete floor you have, you will have to prepare it beforehand, and that is a job that requires a lot of labor and time. If you plan to do it on your own, you will need to spend a whole day cleaning your floor to prepare it for the new coating. That means you need to get rid of the existing spills and stains. On the second day, you lay down the first coat and on the third day the second coat.
