Rev Up Your Garage With Epoxy Flooring
Garages are no longer just a spot to park your car. In recent years, garages have evolved to become versatile spaces that people can use for a variety of purposes. With the rising popularity of home gyms, home offices, and multipurpose spaces, homeowners are now using their garages to accommodate these new needs.
One of the reasons for this trend is the increasing size of garages combined with Covid restrictions changing the way people used their home spaces. The COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns in Melbourne changed how people lived and worked at home. Even now with restrictions lifted the humble home garage has been looked at from a different perspective. We have customers getting epoxy flooring installed on garage floors for home gyms, home offices, and home businesses, creating recreational spaces for teens and kids, man caves and workshops.
Garages are no longer just an afterthought or a storage space for your car. They are becoming an integral part of how people use their homes, offering people the flexibility to create spaces that meet their unique needs. With Allgrind’s epoxy flooring, homeowners can transform their garages into durable, attractive, and functional spaces that can serve multiple purposes. It really is the cheapest way to renovate your home to provide extra living space. No need to build an additional building for a home gym, multipurpose room or home office. Save thousands by calling us and getting an epoxy garage floor.
The Process of Installing Allgrind’s Epoxy Flooring for Home Garages
At Allgrind, we specialise in providing high-quality epoxy flooring for home garages, so we know the ins and outs of how to turn your ugly concrete garage floor into a beautiful shiny epoxy floor. So let’s walk through the process.
Step 1: Preparation
Before we can begin installing your epoxy flooring, we need to prepare your garage floor. This includes cleaning the surface thoroughly and repairing any cracks or damage. We use specialised equipment to grind the surface of your garage floor to create a rough texture, which helps the epoxy adhere properly.
Step 2: Priming
Once the floor is clean and prepped, we apply a primer to the surface. The primer helps the epoxy adhere to the floor and ensures a long-lasting finish.
Step 3: Epoxy Coating
After the primer has dried, we apply the first coat of epoxy to the surface of the garage floor. This is the base layer that provides the colour and texture of your new flooring.
Step 4: Decorative Flakes
Adding visual interest to your garage floor, we apply decorative flakes to the surface of the epoxy coating. These flakes come in a variety of colours and sizes and can create a unique and eye-catching look. Our most popular and recommended colour scheme is a grey base epoxy floor with black and white decorative flakes. This epoxy colour scheme looks the best and is the most versatile for any use.
Step 5: Clear Coat
The final step in the installation process is to apply a clear coat to the surface of the epoxy flooring. The clear coat adds an extra layer of protection to your flooring and gives it a glossy, professional finish.
Step 6: Curing
After the clear coat has been applied, we allow the epoxy flooring to cure. This usually takes between 24 and 48 hours, depending on the temperature and humidity levels in your garage. During this time the floor is not to be used in any way including walking on it.
Step 7: Cleanup
Once the epoxy flooring has fully cured, we remove any masking tape or other materials used during the installation process. We also clean up any debris or dust created during the installation. The timeframe for the whole installation process is 2-3 days.
