Epoxy floor paint is used to seal porous cement floors from mold and cracking damage caused by garage spills and ground moisture. It is a must for long-term durability. Used alone it will improve the appearance of your floor, and make cleaning up fast, but painted cement is a hard and slippery surface ill-suited for standing and walking upon. A non-professional can apply epoxy paint, which costs from $2.50-$5 a square foot, but the preparation, mixing and painting is time consuming and difficult. Applied by a professional, the labor costs from $5-$15 and hour on top of supplies. Using additional coverings over a sealed floor will lengthen its life even more.
You can add tremendous value by applying a garage flooring surface. Most garages are all the same, but if you apply a decorative garage flooring you will make your standout and add value if you plan to sell the home some day. If you have a cracked cement garage floor or stains - you can make it look new by applying a nice garage flooring surface. You may consider tile garage flooring as this can be easily applied and looks very nice. Another nice benefit to tile flooring is that you can replace individual tiles if one becomes damaged. You will want to make sure that you clean your garage flooring surface well before applying any new surface.
A garage floor covering will also allow you to keep the floor much cleaner as a covering is easier to clean than the concrete base. If you happen to spill some gas or oil, it is a whole lot easier to clean off a covering than it is off a concrete floor. If you have always desired to have your garage floor looking like a showroom floor then that is the way to go. You will be able to impress your friends and relatives with your new garage floor. In conclusion, if you are not happy looking at your concrete floor or it is starting to look shabby then why not consider installing a garage floor covering. These covers are excellent for protecting a concrete floor and for giving your garage a clean new look.
