Once upon a time your garage was used to store your car and, maybe, as a place to keep tools. Those days are long gone, and have been replaced by a garage space that caters to the whole family. Now the garage houses not only your car and tools, but the kids’ toys and bikes, crafting supplies, a play area and more. One of the easiest ways to transform your old, dirty garage into a multi-function family space is to update the flooring. In all likelihood your garage flooring is concrete and sports several interesting oil, transmission fluid, and paint stains. You can either try to hide these under mats and area rugs, or pour another coat of concrete over them. Either way, you’re floor is no better protected from leaks, spills, and stains.
Enter Extreme, the best California Epoxy Flooring specialists. Epoxy flooring is durable, resisting wear and tear from liquids like oil and paint, as well as corrosive liquids like cleaning solvents and gardening supplies. It is also strong enough to stand up to high foot traffic and hard play, whether it be your kids running through, or tools dropping from your workbench. A full solids epoxy floor will be solvent free and has a low VOC rating. This means the installation can take place while your family is home, and you can begin to enjoy your new epoxy floor as soon as it is done curing. When installed properly your epoxy floor should set in two to five days, which means you can be back in your garage in less than a week!
Some DIY enthusiasts will want to do their own installation, but there are a lot of benefits to having a professional installation company do the work. First, when using a 100% solids epoxy floor covering, the mixture can be very tricky to get just right. Any miscalculation can cause you several extra days of curing, during which time your garage will not be usable. Even once it’s set, an improperly mixed epoxy can remain somewhat soft and vulnerable to dings and nicks. Another huge problem with improperly installed epoxy flooring is that is can pull away from your concrete sub-flooring, resulting in the entire floor having to be redone.
A professional installer, like Extreme the best California Epoxy Flooring installers, can work with your throughout the entire process. They have over 12 years of experience behind their installers, and will stand by their work every step of the way.
