Comparing and Contrasting the Performance of Common Garage Floor Finishes

garage floor finishes

When taking in your property as a whole, it isn’t hard to see that the garage has more potential than any other part of your home. While living rooms, kitchens, and bathrooms have their functions railroaded, the garage has limitless possibility. Whether you want an amateur showroom, workshop, man-cave, home gym, storage space, car park, or a combination of any of these, the garage can handle it, given the right flooring and design.

Garage floor finishes are the end-all, be-all when trying to realize the dream you had in mind for your garage. Every garage floor finish is suited to a different lifestyle and daily demand, but with so many on the market, it can be difficult to know where to turn.

Global Garage’s patented polyaspartic garage floor finish is strong, stylish, versatile, and easily-installed, but don’t take our word for it – read on to compare and contrast the performance of our patented polyaspartic blend with some common garage floor finishes you will encounter on the market.

Carpeting – filthy, flimsy, and flammable.

Carpeting may seem like a desirable option for those looking to make their garage seem like a more livable space without completely compromising on its practicality as a workshop or storage spot. Better still, carpeting is usually quite cheap and easy to “install,” though the installation process is typically little more than lying loose carpet or square-foot tiles down over some store-bought adhesive stuck to barren concrete floor.

So what are the drawbacks of choosing carpet as a garage floor finish? Unlike Global Garage polyaspartic garage floor finishes, which are perfectly sealed and easy to clean, carpets are coarse, fibrous, and absorbent, so they get dirty quickly, and cling to oil, grease, and other contaminants. Carpet is not only mildly flammable fresh off the roll, but when you add the oil and grease-sponge effect to the equation, you are essentially walking on a tinderbox. Perhaps most frustrating is the speed at which carpet is worn away to nothing. Dragging heavy storage bins and equipment, or rolling hot tires on carpet flooring will leave you with a filthy, unthreaded mess before long.

Compare this flimsy carpet to a polyaspartic garage floor finish, and you will quickly see why home and business owners across America are choosing our exclusive flooring solution. Polyaspartic outperofm carpet in every respect, being exponentially stronger and more resistant to chemicals, as well as easier to clean and with a much longer lifespan. Believe it or not, our polyaspartic garage floor finish is more environmentally-friendly than carpet, being both BPA free and low-VOC, and resilient enough so that you never have to worry about a replacement. Carpet, on the other hand, requires constant upkeep and replacement as daily demands wear it down to the grain. This means manufacturers are constantly pumping toxins into the atmosphere to keep up with constant production demands.

Epoxy – inferior quality with an unwieldy installation process.

Epoxy garage floor finishes are still somewhat common in garages across America, but their performance pales next to our patented polyaspartics. Not only are Global Garage’s polyaspartic coatings rated as 3-times as strong and chemically-resistant, but they are installed much faster and more efficiently. Most epoxy coatings take a minimum of 3 days to install, which means the home’s best storage, leisure, and automotive asset is off-limits for half of your week while you wait for individual layers to dry and set. Contrast this lengthy installation process with our polyaspartic garage floor finish’s single-day, year-round installation service that gets you back to your routine fast. You will be able to drive on your new polyaspartic garage floor finish within hours, not days. Why wait around for an inferior product when you can get unparalleled protection in a single day?

Global Garage’s patented polyaspartic garage floor finish truly outperforms everything else you will find on the market. Whether you are considering epoxy, polyurethane, acrylic, or even other polyaspartic blends, we urge you to visit to learn how our exclusive formula outperforms the competition.
