OGI’s polyaspartic epoxy floor paint
Our polyaspartic epoxy floor paint is the most solution in the residential garage flooring industry. This high-performance polyaspartic epoxy resin creates a permanent bond with concrete surfaces, so your flooring will have an unbreakable defense against the many potential hazards your garage will encounter. Mold, mildew, flooding, chemicals, road salt, abrasions, and various other hazards are no match for OGI flooring.
In addition to strength and protection, OGI adds decorative flakes to the polyaspartic epoxy paint. Garage floor paint with flakes not only gives your flooring a stylish flair, but it also minimizes the visibility of dust and dirt.
Flooring products to avoid
DIY garage epoxy floor kits
DIY epoxy coating kits are a common flooring solution for homeowners because they are affordable and readily available in almost all home improvement stores. These products are capable of offering some minor protection for the underlying concrete. However, their affordability will result in the formation of various defects and, in turn, extra costs.
The most common reason for choosing DIY epoxy is it allows homeowners to reduce material costs and cut out the middleman. Unfortunately, DIY flooring introduces far more costly disadvantages, which outweigh the lower initial costs.
DIY flooring kits require a thorough and near-perfect installation without any extreme temperatures or presence of other environmental conditions. In fact, a small mistake will result in various defects and incomplete protection of the concrete. As a result, you will need to perform many costly repairs to simply maintain presentable flooring.
OGI polyaspartic epoxy floor coatings can help you avoid any potential defects and costly maintenance.
Concrete flooring resurfacers are designed to repair surface-level issues with your garage flooring. For more serious flooring issues, however, resurfacers are ineffective. Damages like deep cracks and major settling will require more in-depth repair methods. Resurfacers consist of polymer materials, sand, Portland cement, and a few other additives.
Garage floor coverings
Rugs, floor mats, trays, and parking pads are all examples of garage floor coverings. The central function of garage floor coverings is to deal with the buildup of any snow, ice, or rain that is tracked in by vehicles. However, these coverings are less convenient than they seem, as they require frequent draining and are difficult to move when full of water.
Furthermore, when the coverings are not regularly drained, excess water increases your garage’s condensation levels. So, the water will then leak into the cement, causing potentially drastic damages.
Floor sealers are yet another common flooring solution for residential garages. These products are easy to apply and offer low pricing, so homeowners view them as the best flooring option for their budget. However, floor sealers only offer minimal defense against staining and water damage. They do not provide protection against more serious hazards.
Similar to resurfacers, patches are a common option for fixing smaller issues, but this is only a short-term solution. These patches simply cover up the issues and do not prevent the formation of more serious defects or potential damage. Patching small areas of your floor also makes your concrete look inconsistent and “patchy.”
Stains add some color or even a stone and epoxy look to your flooring, but they do not offer the strength your garage floor needs. Much like patching, staining is a method that solves surface-level issues but not more significant damages.
