    Epoxy Floor Installation

    Concrete is tough, durable, and long lasting.  However, without being treated properly, it also has a major drawback: it is extremely porous.  The downside of this porosity is that it absorbs stains.  Ever seen a driveway or a carport that is bare concrete?  A drip of oil here and there, and it is very obvious that you have a concrete floor and that at one point you had a car or truck sitting on top of it.  That’s one reason you want to install garage flooring, to protect your floor from stains.

    We know what you’re thinking.  You generally don’t take people into your garage to show it off unless you’re a hardcore car nut.  However, you’re going to have to look at it each and every day.  In some cases the stain has another problem: a really bad smell.  However, by installing garage flooring, you are not only protecting your floor from stains, you’re keeping your garage from smelling like a diesel plant.  However, stains and smells aren’t the only reason that you want to put this flooring in.  You might also want to do it for safety reasons.

    Safety and Your Garage Floor

    Oil is a lubricant.  So is transmission fluid and every other fluid that is in your car or truck with the possible exception of antifreeze.  However, one things that all liquids have in common is that they can make a surface slippery.  One small drop of oil isn’t that bad, but what happens when it is several years worth.  Household accidents happen every year and one of the biggest ones is fall related injuries.  All it takes is someone slipping on the garage floor and they could be injured or even killed.  Oil is also flammable.  You could literally set fire to your concrete if enough oil spills on it.  That’s another reason to install garage flooring.

    It helps to make cleaning these fluids up extremely easy.  Garage flooring makes your garage floor liquid proof, which will stop it from not only smelling bad and looking awful, it will stop any corrosion of your floor.

    So, let’s recap, shall we?  We’re in the 21st Century, and we have more advanced technology.  One form of this advanced technology is new types of flooring.  One type of flooring is epoxy garage flooring.
