When you imagine a garage, what adjectives spring to mind? For most people, they say “gray”, “boring”, “dirty”, or “ugly”. Many homeowners tend to ignore their garage, only using it to keep their car out of the elements and store stuff they don’t want in their house. However, with a little change like coating the garage floor, not only can you totally change the way it looks, you can also make it a much more functional part of your home. Today, we’re going to take a look at five of the ways garage flooring can benefit you. If you want to make your garage into something you can be proud of, call Floor Coatings USA to learn about our flooring options.
On a purely superficial level, garage flooring can make your garage look much more exciting and appealing than plain, gray concrete. With so many different color and pattern options, Flexmar polyaspartic floors can completely change the complexion of your garage. You can choose a specific style to set the tone for your workshop or make it have a warmer look for a studio space. This makes the garage a nicer place to entertain guests and get work done. This is especially important when you are looking to run a home business out of your garage because you want it to look professional and nice for anyone that walks in.
When you are looking for a home or overseeing construction on a new house, you get to make a lot of choices regarding the looks of every room. However, the garage is often left behind, with most favoring basic design instead of creativity. Garage flooring presents you with an opportunity to have total creative control over how it looks. Whether you want it to complement the design of the home’s interior or you want to make it stand out as something totally unique, the variety of color options make it possible to put your mark on your garage. You can choose a color that matches existing decor or fits in with other upgrades like new garage cabinetry. You can even make the floor complement the color of your car if you want to get really fancy.
For many households, the garage is the main access point into the rest of the house. With many garages serving as a multi-purpose space for workshops, crafting areas, or home gyms, it’s important for the floor to be able to stand up to what you’re putting it through. Polyaspartic flooring is incredibly durable, making it an ideal choice for such a high-traffic area. With a resistance against everything from impacts and scuff-marks to chemicals and grease, no matter what you’re planning on using the garage for, you can be sure the floor will hold up against it.
That durability makes it much easier to maintain the desired look of your garage. Have you ever tried to clean something off of concrete? It’s incredibly difficult, which leads to many garages having a slew of stains covering everything. A Flexmar polyaspartic garage floor is resistant to chemicals, oil, gas, salt, and much more, with most things being as easy to clean up as wiping it off with a paper towel. If you want to give it a more thorough cleaning, all it takes is a little sweeping, hosing it down, and then removing the excess water with a squeegee or mop. The floors offered by Floor Coatings USA are also 100 percent UV resistant, which means it won’t yellow, maintaining its shine and color for years to come.
Polyaspartic floors are low in VOCs (volatile organic compounds), which make them a much more green and environmentally friendly option for flooring in your garage. Not only is it safer for the environment, it’s also safer for you to be around. If you’re looking to make your home more environmentally friendly, it’s vital that you don’t ignore the VOCs contained in your flooring and any paint you use in your house.
Whether you’re looking to turn your garage into the workshop of your dreams or you just want to make it a space to entertain friends, a Flexmar polyaspartic floor can bring it to life. Call Floor Coatings USA today for your free quote!
