Now that winter is upon us, the time has come to make sure your garage is up for another cold and snowy season. We discussed the benefits of additional insulation and ensuring that your garage has been properly weatherstripped, but there is one more essential step in getting your garage ready for winter.
Rock salt used for melting ice is extremely harmful to unprotected concrete and the deposits will slowly degrade your garage floor until it is reduced to rubble. Additionally, once the cold weather arrives and the home and car improvement projects move back to the garage, it is important to have a safe and clean area to work. Adding an Epoxy Floor Coating to your garage floor is a great way to protect your garage from damage and transform the garage into a functional workspace.
What are Epoxy Floor Coatings?
Epoxy Floor Coating systems consist of special chemicals that adhere to concrete and create a durable, protective surface. This layer both protects the concrete beneath and it makes your floor brighter and smoother, while providing better traction. Epoxy Floor Coating systems are especially popular in commercial settings such as warehouses, professional garages and medical laboratories. The durability of epoxy protects concrete from chipping due to heavy machinery and tools while its surface causes liquids to bead, resisting stains and messes. It is also chemically resistant which is important for automobile maintenance and for managing fertilizers.
