Laying down a new floor in your garage can be a time-consuming and expensive undertaking. With so many options to choose from, picking the perfect one can be daunting if you’ve never done it before.
No type of flooring is perfect; every material has advantages and drawbacks, and epoxy resin is no exception.
Below are the main pros and cons of using epoxy resin flooring in your garage.
One of the main selling points of epoxy flooring is its appearance. Compared to other materials used for garage flooring, the bright look of epoxy is far more appealing. It is also much easier to sweep and clean than most other materials.
Epoxy flooring is one of the most cost-effective flooring options available. The cost per square foot is considerably lower than other materials, and it can be installed over existing concrete flooring with ease.
Epoxy floors have long been valued for their durability. The only caveat is that it needs to be sealed properly and well-maintained. Coating concrete with a layer of epoxy resin makes for a durable surface.
One of the main drawbacks of an epoxy garage floor is that it can become extremely slippy when wet. Liquid spills are unlikely to cause damage to an epoxy floor, but they can make it a hazardous surface to walk on.
When it is properly applied, sealed, and maintained, epoxy resin is a durable and resilient material. However, no matter how well you look after it, epoxy flooring will need to be replaced eventually; it isn’t a permanent solution. Hot tyres and heavy objects will accelerate the degradation of a resin garage floor.
