The list of uses for garage epoxy flooring continues to grow day by day and in this case we’re going to discuss the concept of using it for your parking garage. Let’s be honest here: parking lots get a lot of traffic, and when we say that we’re not trying to make a pun, it’s the truth. One of the most interesting things about a parking lot is that you would be hard pressed to control the type of traffic that comes in and out. One day you could be dealing with small cars, the next, trucks, and the worst part is you can’t control the condition of the cars.
Your floors are eventually going to reap the ‘benefits’ of every single mechanical problem that your visiting cars have, and these problems aren’t few. Oil leaks, for example, are a common problem with any car and this can easily contribute to the not so gradual degradation of your concrete floor. As we have said many times before, concrete is a porous material, and the more liquid that seeps into it, the bigger the problems you will have. Something important to remember, is that while liquids like oil and antifreeze might not cause immediate structural problems other corrosive fluids from vehicles or run off from vehicles can cause severe pitting down to the rebar. Once this corrosion gets to your rebar, you have some serious issues to worry about.
Remember, concrete is not invincible, despite initial appearances. If you want to avoid these problems, we would strongly suggest taking a look at our epoxy coating systems.
What’s the Best Garage Epoxy Flooring for a Large Parking Garage?
If you take a look at the Home Page of our website you are going to find a video of a parking garage in which our epoxy flooring with a military topcoat was utilized while some directional blue arrows were done with a hybrid type all in one epoxy. The latter wore out the former still looks new after 9 years, which is to say that the former did not wear out at all. As we said, don’t let your floor get that bad in the first place.
Garage epoxy flooring isn’t invincible, but you will find that it’s a better solution than the big box brands, especially if you choose to utilize our military grade topcoat. A topcoat is a protective coating for your garage floor that will add many years of life to its lifespan, and it is great for covering the color chips if you choose to use them on your floor.
