Epoxy Garage Floor Coatings in the D.C. Area

garage floor coating

When it comes to your garage floor, durability, longevity, safety, and appearance are all important.

When you work with SUNDEK of Washington, all those needs are met. For decades, we have been resurfacing garage floors in the Washington D.C., Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia areas.

The best coatings for garage floors

Through our years of working on garage floors, we’ve found that epoxy coatings and polyaspartics are the most durable. Here are some of the reasons our clients love them:

  • They can withstand the weight of cars and other heavy equipment.
  • They’re non-porous, so they can resist stains from oil, grease, chemicals, water, moisture, and more.
  • Since epoxy and polyaspartic garage floors are so durable, they hold up longer than other materials.
  • When you work with a reputable contractor such as SUNDEK of Washington, you can have your floor textured in a way that makes it slip resistant so you don't have to worry about slip-and-fall accidents happening when you’re getting in and out of the car or walking around the garage. This is especially important during rainy or snowy weather.

Garage floor designs

While the functionality of your garage floor is the most important thing, many people also care about the aesthetics. An experienced contractor can give your garage floor basically any design you want. Here are just a few options:

  • Traditional gray. This is one of the simplest choices, and it’s also one of the most popular because it is easy to install and goes with anything. If you are going for a minimalistic look, a traditional gray garage floor is a good way to go.
  • Colored base or flecks. For a customized appearance, you can add a layer of color flakes to create a colored base for your garage floor. You can even mix multiple colors of acrylic paint chips or flecks to mimic the appearance of premium materials or to create a one-of-a-kind design.
  • Quartz. If you are looking for maximum impact resistance, decorative quartz garage floors are a great option. To install this type of flooring, your contractor will add the quartz as an aggregate over a solid epoxy coating for enhanced impact resistance over standard color chip flooring.

What is the difference between epoxy and polyaspartic floors?

Are epoxy and polyaspartic floors slippery?

Epoxy and polyaspartic floors can be installed with additives that make them non-slip. Additionally, a contractor such as SUNDEK of Washington can texture the surface so it's not slippery when wet.

Can I epoxy my garage floor myself?

While it's possible to apply an epoxy or polyaspartic coating to your garage floor on your own, it's not a simple DIY project. Be sure to do thorough research into best practices and techniques that will help ensure that your floor doesn't end up with soft spots or slick spots that are slippery.

We recommend hiring professional contractor. A contractor with years of experience applying coatings is familiar with the ins and outs of coating applications and has a good understanding of what can be done to avoid common issues. A local contractor also knows what types of weather conditions are good and bad for installing coatings.

Can you put a coating on a damaged garage floor?

As long as the damage on your garage floor doesn't have extremely wide or deep cracks or other significant damage that compromises the integrity of your concrete slab, a contractor should be able to repair the damage and then resurface it with an epoxy or polyaspartic coating.

An experienced contractor such as SUNDEK of Washington can also assess the damage and attempt to figure out what's causing it. That way you can prevent future damage from occurring. If your garage does have damage, it's important to choose a contractor who has experience in concrete repair.

Maintaining an epoxy or polyaspartic garage floor

Since epoxy and polyaspartic floors are non-porous, they won’t absorb spills. So, for example, if a little oil ends up on your surface, it's simple to wipe it up (although it's important to not let it sit). This means you don’t have to worry about damage to your floor from things like oil, water, or other materials.

Maintenance requires sweeping off dust and debris every so often to keep the surface tidy. You can also hose off the surface or use a pressure washer to get at dirt and grime.
