Garage Floor CoatingEpoxy Flooring, Garage Floor Coating


Considering ceramic tile flooring for your commercial flooring?  While ceramic tile flooring has been a traditional favorite, the new technology from Garage Floor Coating – The Great Lakes affords many advantages.  Our products are specially formulated for the Great Lakes region climate changes, such as harsh temperature fluctuations, high humidity and moist conditions.  Ceramic tile flooring and other traditional flooring materials have a tendency to fail over time, unlike our epoxy coated floors.

Garage Floor Coating – The Great Lakes Epoxy Coated Floors

  • Grout in ceramic tile flooring must be sealed and maintained regularly to avoid discoloration.
  • Our 100% Solid Epoxy Poly Hybrid top coat creates a very low maintenance flooring system.
  • Dust particles and sand can cause scratches on ceramic tile flooring even in light traffic areas.
  • Our 100% solid epoxy coated floors are extremely durable even under harsh use.
  • Ceramic tile flooring can crack or chip creating an unsanitary environment for bacteria to grow.
  • Epoxy coated floors are more sanitary because they don’t chip or crack.  Water cannot penetrate our clear top coat, preventing growth of mold or bacteria in walls or substrate.
  • Ceramic tile flooring is slippery when wet, particularly prevalent in high humidity conditions.
  • Skid/slip resistant coatings are available for our epoxy coated floor systems.
  • Ceramic tile flooring is cold in the winter.
  • Epoxy coated floors are designed to be flexible. Our floor systems expand and contract with changing weather conditions.
