//Common Myths About Garage Floor Epoxy Coatings

So you are thinking about using an epoxy flooring system in your home. When you take a look online or even ask other people in Fort Wayne about epoxy flooring, sometimes they are going to respond with myths associated with epoxy flooring and why you shouldn’t use one. Well, today we are going to be taking a closer look at some of these myths and tell you why they are exactly that, myths. So let’s get started, shall we?

The first myth that we are going to be talking about today is the common misconception that epoxy flooring systems are too expensive. Well, we are glad to say that epoxy flooring systems are actually reasonably priced as they share almost the exact same price margins for tile and other traditional flooring systems. But, if you take into account the long lifespan of epoxy flooring systems, you will find that the actual lifecycle costs of epoxy is more affordable than other traditional flooring systems and is actually comparable to the lifecycle costs of traditional concrete flooring.

Another common myth typically associated with professional epoxy flooring systems is that they are the same as the epoxy paints that you can find at the local hardware store. Unfortunately, it isn’t that easy! The epoxy paints that you find at the local hardware store don’t offer even close to the same level of performance and durability of a 100 percent solid epoxy base. Our professional epoxy flooring systems offer a weight tolerance of around 15,000-20,000 PSI weight tolerance which beats out every other flooring system on the market. So next time someone tries to tell you that professional epoxy and epoxy paints are the same, you can tell them good luck!

The most common myth that epoxy flooring has brought on is that they offer little to no options for customization. Thankfully, that myth is completely false! Epoxy flooring can be customized with the best of them with a wide range of customization for any and all settings that they can be placed in. We offer you the ability to customize your epoxy by using our wide selection of base colors, the option to use single or multi-colored paint flakes with nearly endless combinations, and even the use of metallic pigments to craft the stunning metallic epoxy flooring system. We aren’t done yet! We can even use stencils to create texts, arrows, walkways, barriers and even vehicle paths that can make your garage more organized, safer and more efficient. We can even place your companies logo or your favorite logo directly into your epoxy flooring system!

Finally, the common misconception of epoxy flooring systems being unsafe to use. Well, this one should speak for itself because epoxy flooring cant only keeps your home safe, it can actually make it safer! This is because of the superior light reflection of epoxy flooring can actually make your garage up to 300 percent brighter without the help of additional lighting sources, saving you money on your power bill while keeping you safe. Garage floor epoxy can even help keep you safe when it is wet or soiled with a silica sand additive that gives the flooring texture.
