Taking Concrete Surfaces To A Whole New Level

While a lot of people use epoxy coatings on garage floors, basements, pool decks, and for other outdoor applications, have you ever been to someone’s house only to notice their surface looks remarkably better than most? The reason is that rather than just having the coating applied, they chose to have it enhanced.

The following are four of the best ways to take the appearance of epoxy coatings to a new level.

  1. Metallic Flakes – When having a product like SunMetal FX applied, the surface has tiny sparkles throughout that look similar to stars. They are formulated with metallic flakes, and you decide the color and the density you want. For a subtle look, have the installer broadcast minimal flakes, or for something more dramatic, go with a much denser volume.
  2. Quartz Beads – Another way to enhance epoxy coatings is with quartz beads. Because these come in a variety of colors and sizes, you can change the appearance of any space. With this, you can opt for a single color or go all-out with a rainbow effect.
  3. Colored Glass – Similar to quartz beads, colored glass gives epoxy surfaces a beautiful and unique look. Just imagine how this would transform your garage or mud room, creating something different from anything your neighbors have. During both daylight and nighttime hours, any reflection of light would make the colored glass sparkle.
  4. Colors – A lot of people have the misconception that epoxy coatings are clear. Although you could go that route, you will find a tremendous spectrum of available colors. If you want to create a casual living area, you could stick with earthy tones, whereas, for something with tremendous personality, you might consider one of the many shades of reds, blues, greens, yellows, and oranges.

Especially with a product like SunEpoxy 100, not only do you have one of the best epoxy coatings for high-traffic areas, but you also get the chance to make it beautiful using one of the four enhancements mentioned.

Are you tired of the way your garage looks? Do the stains and surface imperfections on the floor bother you? If so, why not select a coating that will completely change the look and function of your concrete garage floors?

Without question, epoxy is the best coating for concrete garage floors. Not only will it give the surface a much-needed boost of color, but it will also hide small pits and cracks. After having the coating applied, it will resist a broad range of things, including stains, water, oil, impacts, abrasions, and more. That means you can park your cars in the garage without worrying about damage.

As for unique ideas using epoxy coatings for concrete garage floors, this is your opportunity to let your creative juices flow. You might think that epoxy is black, when in fact, you can choose from multiple colors. Although the garage is not a direct part of the house, you still want a similar look. For that reason, consider a complementary color. For instance, if you have a Mediterranean style home with matching décor, you might go with Seattle Red or Adobe.

Something else to think about is how an expert can enhance the coating you select. You can create a wow factor by including aggregates in the product. If you want floors that look nothing like that of your neighbors, family, or friends, you could have small pebbles or cobblestones added to the mix. Perhaps you would prefer tiny vinyl acrylic paint chips of color or quartz beads.

Just because you choose a highly functional coating for your concrete garage floors does not mean you have to sacrifice on beauty. By going with a product like SunEpoxy 54 or SunEpoxy 100, you would end up with a seamless surface that looks incredible.

If you need help producing ideas, spend time looking at completed projects online. Although you could copy what someone else did, you might use what you find as inspiration for creating a one-of-a-kind look.

Garage Floors can have custom logos

For many homeowners, the garage is just as important as other areas of the house. For instance, people who collect antique or exotic cars want a pristine place to keep their prized possessions. Regardless, it is common for garage floors to house containers of chemicals, solvents, and other potentially damaging substances, making a durable flooring system essential.

Following are five top reasons why epoxy coatings on garage floors are better than other options like paint.

Resistance – Epoxy is resistant to not only chemicals but also stains, grease, oil, antifreeze, abrasions, impacts, water, and more. In other words, no matter what things spill or drop on these floors, they can handle it.

Durability – If you have a garage where you park vehicles but also work on projects, you need a durable flooring solution. Epoxy offers just that. When a professional installer uses a superior-quality product, like SunEpoxy 54 or SunEpoxy 100, the floors will provide many years of flawless service.

Versatility – Just because you want new garage floors does not automatically mean that you must compromise on style. One of the exciting aspects of epoxy coatings is that you can choose more than one color for a one-of-a-kind look. You can also have the installer create gorgeous designs using textures and patterns. With epoxy, the sky is the limit.

Fast Installation – Epoxy cures and dries quickly. Usually, the installer can complete the project within one to three days. When done, you will have a fully functional garage without any unpleasant lingering odor.

Enhancements – For gorgeous garage floors, you might consider having colored acrylic flakes, glass beads, granite chips, or some other enhancement added to the formula. With that, an already beautiful floor becomes even more spectacular.

Keep in mind that there are many other reasons why epoxy garage floors are the most popular. Make this part of your home amazing. You will feel proud to pull your vehicle inside and enjoy special projects even more.
