The decision to remodel your basement or any other living space is incredibly significant. It requires a substantial investment to get all the proper materials and follow through with the project. Ohio Garage Interiors offers the benefits of both high-quality epoxy materials as well as reliable, precise installation methods.
In addition to residential basements and garages, we can perform flooring installation for commercial facilities. Furthermore, our epoxy has the strength to offer functionality in high-traffic industrial environments.
However, there are still many other basement flooring options on the market. You might be wondering why you even need to hire someone for the job. DIY is becoming increasingly popular for home remodeling, so why should you hire a professional flooring contractor?
Yes, performing flooring installation yourself is a valid and readily available option, but it might not offer as much value as you would think. When someone chooses DIY, they are usually looking for a way to lower the costs of the overall project. Namely, they want to cut out the middleman.
However, DIY projects often use inferior flooring products to save money. This results in higher overall costs than high-performance products. These materials will peel and delaminate more quickly and more often than OGI epoxy, so you spend more money on repairs and maintenance.
Furthermore, you lose out on the skills and knowledge of professional flooring contractors. The initial cost of professional installation seems higher initially. However, you receive products with unmatched strength and precision installation that will make your floor look better and last longer. Therefore, you save plenty of time and money on the repairs you would perform for standard epoxy and DIY installation.
Advantages of OGI basement flooring epoxy
Polyaspartic epoxy basement flooring is inexpensive, visually stunning, and virtually maintenance-free. Ohio Garage Interiors uses a high-end hybrid polymer finish that integrates an epoxy additive made right here in Ohio, so it is four times stronger than the standard epoxy. This non-porous coating also seals to the surface and is not affected by water damage and the moisture that lingers in basements. Here are some unique advantages of choosing OGI basement flooring:
Easy to maintain:
OGI basement epoxy flooring offers a slip-resistant, impermeable finish for improved protection and lower maintenance requirements. Stains and dirt cannot penetrate the flooring, so you can clean any mess with a quick mopping or vacuuming.
Without reliable flooring, basements are vulnerable to moisture buildup, mold, mildew, flooding, and many other potential hazards. OGI flooring is designed to protect against these threats and more. Our flooring materials can even handle traffic from industrial machinery, so protecting your basement is no problem.
Here at OGI, we want to give our customers the ideal flooring that fits the style of their home, so we give you the chance to get creative with your flooring’s design. Personalize your new basement floor with our solid color options or our decorative flake systems. Our DecoFlake flooring offers a wide variety of flake colors, shapes, sizes, and patterns, so you can create the best style for your living space.
You should always know what you are paying prior to committing to professional installations. Get in touch with us to set up an in-home inspection, and we will send an OGI staff member to inspect your basement and give you a quote.
Locally owned and operated:
Our status as a locally owned and operated company is important to us, so we will never send subcontractors to complete your project. You will always receive service from genuine OGI contractors who can provide you with amicable customer service and unrivaled craftsmanship.
Here at OGI, we want to make sure we are as thorough as possible with each flooring installation. Thus, we always perform a two-day installation rather than rushing to finish in a single day. As a result, the flooring materials have enough time to adjust to your home.
Without this preparation period, your flooring will likely exhibit many unsightly defects after installation. Other companies will skip this to perform quicker installations at the cost of the customer. We, however, take the extra time to ensure you receive high-quality flooring that will last.
Avoid natural stone flooring
First and foremost, we want to encourage our customers to avoid natural stone flooring at all costs. It is one of the more unreliable types of flooring on the market. There are many misleading advertisements promoting natural stone flooring, making many inflated claims.
However, these ads provide an entirely inaccurate portrayal of this flooring. These ads often describe natural stone flooring as durable and low-maintenance. They even flaunt an extremely low price of 99 cents per square foot!
For many, these alleged savings are hard to pass up. Unfortunately, natural stone flooring is much more costly than it seems. Here are some of the hidden costs you will encounter once you install natural stone flooring:
- Preparation and installation tack on substantial costs to the square footage.
- The texture of natural stone results in higher maintenance costs.
- Many garage flooring companies threaten customers with loss of warranty if they do not pay for expensive, professional cleaning annually.
- Mold and mildew buildup is common with natural stone, increasing repair needs even further.
- Ohio’s inclement weather increases the likelihood of costly maintenance.
- Cleaning is difficult and time-consuming.
With OGI, however, you can make a more valuable investment in superior epoxy products. As a result, your flooring will last longer, look better, and provide the functionality you need.
