Over the last two years, most of us have spent more of our days at home, passing the time with DIY projects such as garage refurbishment.
A space that’s seldom given much attention, a garage is typically used for keeping and cleaning cars in, as well as for general storage. However, our garages are versatile spaces that can be used for a variety of purposes, such as a home office or a personal gym.
A key factor when improving your garage is its appearance, and upgrading your flooring can make a huge difference.
While some people opt to simply paint their flooring or use an epoxy garage floor, these are just short-term options. Typically, general wear and tear can set in after just a year with epoxy flooring (even less with paint), meaning that work would need to be undertaken again.
As a result, those looking for a lasting solution are opting instead for MMA resin garage flooring.
Here are 5 attributes that make this innovative flooring solution the ideal choice for your garage.
Resin garage flooring is manufactured and formulated using chemical bonding to create a strong, resistant surface. The chemical coating ensures a continuous layer of resin is applied to strengthen the surface. This means that MMA resin flooring is exceptionally hardwearing and can easily tolerate heavy-duty use.
Resin garage flooring remains flexible under pressure and duress, with the ability to take substantial weight due to the chemical bonding involved in its production. This allows it to withstand heavy thermal shocks and impacts.
For this reason, resin is often deployed in warehouses and factories, where flooring must be able to tolerate the weight of heavy equipment and goods.
In garages, MMA resin flooring can take the weight of vehicles and stored items, as well as heavy free weights and professional gym equipment if you ever decide to convert your garage into a home gym.
Offered in a wide range of designs, textures and colours, homeowners can utilise MMA resin flooring to create a unique look for their garage. When having it installed, some homeowners find aesthetic value in adding some colour. If choosing to go with a DIY method, this involves mixing hardener and resin first, then adding some dye or paint.
Fortunately, our pre-prepared resin hardeners come with the ideal colour concentrations, allowing DIY-savvy homeowners to create the perfect look for their garage space.
4. Safe and secure
Our GarageTuff resin system has special anti-slip properties, which can help to prevent accident or injury by providing ample resistance to various spillages that can happen in a garage environment.
5. Easy to install
When it comes to installation, our own GarageTuff MMA resin is extremely easy to install.
Typically, paint or epoxy floors require at least 24 hours before additional coats can be applied, though this can be as long as 72 hours for epoxy.
For GarageTuff, each coating takes just 45 minutes to reach full strength, after which additional coatings can be applied on top.
