Updated on July 23, 2011

When it comes to the life of your floor or its coating, Epoxy floor coatings are the most recommended products since it offers a very lengthy list of advantages when compared to the other floor coatings and paints of the same category. When it comes to basement areas and garages, the best sought ones are garage floor coatings of epoxy without second thought.

If you own a garage or basement that you don't use often for shedding your cars or trucks but you still want to use it for the functioning of other useful purposes like office, home or even kids use, then you can make that happen if you use epoxy garage floor coatings. And the same is used in places which are getting used roughly by parking vehicles since it offers durable nature that most of the paints or coats in the market fail to offer.

The most recommended floor coating for home owners who are looking for the best looking and durable ones is nothing other than epoxy floor coatings. The first and foremost reason for making this a choice is because of its excellent property of bonding with the materials with which the floor is made up of - concrete, cement etc in most cases.

It adds look and feel and moreover hides the ugly factors (if any) that has affected your floor in small or big ways. That simply means 2 things - It adds beauty to the floor. And that's the stylish (even fancy coatings design) look that most of us are looking for. And the second one - It hides cracks, stains or similar things that have happened to your floor. So it not only restores the look of the floor, but adds more charm with various colors and gradients and designs available to choose from and mix. So it is commonly known in the markets as garage sealer (since it works best even in the case of garage floors that are most likely to be suffered from various problems like stains, cracks, etc).

You can mix colors according to your taste - most loved characteristic feature. Coatings and their physical natures can be pre-modified by the intermixing of the colors at the initial stage. For example, you can use a light mixture of colors if you intend to coat the surface lightly. So it makes things easier for small scale coating as well as quick coats.

      I have heard great things about epoxy flooring. We want to put it in our garage, I think it looks nicer than just plain cement. I have a hair salon in my basement that I also want to do it in because it looks nice and it's an easy clean up. Thanks for sharing!
