Homeowners are always looking for the trends that impact their home value, and one such trend in recent years is an updated garage. Buyers on today’s market definitely care how your garage looks and functions, and having modern looks and functionality in your space can make a big difference – both to home value and your own daily comfort.
At Packman’s Coatings, we’re here to help using our garage floor coating services. Our epoxy coatings are perfect for garage floors as well as numerous other surfaces, and there are several reasons why. Let’s look at why epoxy is such a great choice for a garage floor coating, plus how it adds directly to your home value.
Many people think of the aesthetic side first, and rightly so – epoxy coatings add a glossy, sleek look to any floor. But at Packman’s Coatings, we’re just as interested in the safety elements that our epoxy coatings can add.
Think about some of the things you do in your garage on a regular basis. For instance, you’ll often load or remove large items from your vehicle; you’ll regularly transport bulkier tools or machinery like lawnmowers; and of course, you’ll store a wide variety of items, depending on your needs.
Will you be able to do all these things safely if you have a cracked, uneven garage floor? Chances are, the answer is no. Trip-and-fall injuries can be costly and serious, and they’re far more likely with an imperfect garage floor accompanying what’s already a darker, sometimes-colder room in the house. Epoxy coatings, however, seal up these kinds of cracks and prevent these risks.
Another major use of the garage is for storage, but most people don’t really think about how a great garage floor impacts the storage space you have available. Coating the floor is often the first step toward making a garage space more lively and useful – the shining floors inspire many people to make full use of the space they have available, and also ensure that all areas of the floor are suitable for long-term item storage.
As we mentioned above, aesthetics are usually the first reason our clients look to epoxy coatings. Garage floors take quite a beating in many homes, picking up oil drips and other moisture while running the risks of cracks or other damage while bearing extremely high weight loads.
Epoxy coatings help protect against all these issues and more. They provide a beautiful-looking seal that not only benefits you practically, but improves the feel and visuals of a room you’ll be in quite often.
As we noted earlier, garage improvements are a growing trend for people looking to raise home values. New garage elements increase the value of your home directly, both through curb appeal and practicality improvements. They can also play a huge role in your storage space, which is another huge factor on today’s market.
