Differences between Garage Floor Epoxies

Home Improvement
Epoxies can be the solution you have longed for since your garage floor started to get dirty and oily. There are many options and you have to know the differences between garage floor epoxies before you take a pick.

3 Main Types of Epoxy

The epoxies for garage floors can be divided into three types namely water based, solvent based and 100 percent solid epoxies. All of them are tough and come in two parts. You are the one to mix them prior to the application. You may find stores that sell one part solvent based epoxy coating but it is not actually epoxy. In fact, it is much closer to paint than epoxy coating.

A 100 percent solid epoxy does not contain solvents. It is the best option especially when it comes to toughness. It will surely last long so it is very ideal on garage floors. After applying this type of epoxy, you should be able to see a very thick and hard but striking surface on your garage floor.

Some things that you should remember. The 100 percent solid epoxies are expensive. You will spend roughly $250 if you will buy for a one-car garage. They are also harder to install but nonetheless can be applied as a DIY project.

The solvent based epoxies are also a good choice. However, there are differences between garage floor epoxies and this one is not as tough as the 100 percent solid epoxy. Nevertheless, they are much cheaper and easier to apply. The downside is that they offer a thinner surface. They are most likely to last shorter than a 100 percent solid epoxy.

Water-based epoxy is water soluble. It is very similar to solvent based epoxies except that it uses water as the main carrier. They are safer than the first two because they are less reactive. They can also be applied to various thickness or thinness. They are also the easiest to clean type of epoxy.

Modern Epoxies

Those are the basic types of epoxies. With the developments over the years, epoxies can also be grouped according to their special features. We can now find epoxies with self-leveling or self-dispersing capabilities. The self leveling epoxy coats are great for DIY projects. They are easy to install even if you are working on an old concrete garage floor. The surface comes out leveled and smooth without any effort.

Decorative Epoxies for Garage

A lot of people want decorative floors even in their garage. Luckily, there are decorative epoxies. Some can be mixed with colors. Others can have logos or decorative details. Great examples are the graveled epoxy or epoxy terrazzo. The only problem is that they are a bit more complex to install. Nonetheless, the graveled epoxy floor is great as it also helps prevent slips with its textured outcome while the epoxy terrazzo is easy to clean which is why it is highly preferred on places where there is high foot traffic such as entrances of public places.
