How Epoxy Can Transform Your Concrete Floor

You may be familiar with the phrase, "Sell the problem a product solves, NOT the product itself." At Granite Garage Floors, we can't emphasize this sentiment enough and we've witnessed it to be true through how we've helped thousands of previous customers. For this article, we've narrowed it down to the top 3 ways we've been able to help solve concrete flooring problems with our epoxy coating systems. Keep reading to learn more!

Solution #1 - Preservation & Protection of Exposed Concrete

If you have exposed concrete in your basement or your garage, it is continually deteriorating from time, weather, and thermal expansion/contraction. Unprotected areas that see the most damage are usually garage floors due to the abuse from vehicles and weather. Frequently, the spalling and cracking from years of sand, salt, and water will cause irreparable damage to the extent that the garage slab needs to be entirely replaced. A professional epoxy coating system cannot only protect newer slabs from future deterioration but is also very effective for patching, repairing and fusing together older slabs to increase the substrate's integrity prior to coating.

Solution #2 - Ease of Cleaning

Uncoated concrete is almost impossible to clean. Dust, stains, and dirt collect easily, and ultimately, this mess is tracked into other parts of the house without intent. The polymer coating system that Granite Garage Floors employs utilizes a 100% solid industrial base coat, and a chemically resistant, UV stable Polyaspartic topcoat that allows for organic material, mud, dirt, and even oil & gas to wipe up with ease. Additionally, if your garage has perimeter concrete foundation stem walls you have an option to seal this area as well to provide a "bathtub" type approach. This prohibits water and dirt from falling in between the concrete and also provides homeowners with a buffer zone of sorts to allow the use of a hose or pressure washer to spray out the space with confidence without the worry of spraying on walls.

Solution #3 - Cosmetically Appealing

The look and feel of a Granite Garage Floors is one that brings normally boring, dark, and drab areas of the home such as garages and unfinished basements into an entirely new light. Our systems will feel different to the foot and also provide a warmer, more welcoming feeling. Kids will gravitate to these rooms to play and adults will feel that this space is more aesthetically pleasing due to the clean, finished, and bright appearance that our systems offer. Designer colors and even flowing metallic options are available to provide a plethora of choices to match a homeowner's needs. Contrasting wall colors can even accent the floor's impact on the overall beauty of a garage or basement setting to allow for a beautiful room to emerge out of what was previously an area of embarrassment to most homeowners.
