Step Into Style On Your Garage Floor
By Carrie McConkey, www.carriemcconkey.com
Who would have thought your garage could make a fashion statement? Now more than ever, garages are sporting their own style with designer upgrades that are attractive, durable, and add value to your home. Make your garage one-of-a-kind by installing a custom, hand-laid modular or epoxy floor. With endless color and pattern combinations available, in just a matter of hours, you’ll have a long-lasting floor that you – and your car – will love.
Create a gorgeous garage from the ground up with a stain and chemical-resistant epoxy floor. Preparation is key to create a stable foundation and includes a professional moisture test, degreasing, crack fill and repair, and grinding. A colored epoxy base coat is applied, using a proprietary formula that wicks deep into the concrete for a bond three times stronger than ordinary epoxy. Hand-tossed vinyl flakes provide the granite-like appearance, and a long-wearing, UV-resistant Polyurea top coat seals with a high-gloss touch. Installation takes just one to two days, and your new, smooth, and attractive floor has its own 10-year limited warranty.
Swisstrax Modular Tiles
Swiss engineered and manufactured in the USA, the unique and versatile Swisstrax has earned a reputation as “The World’s Finest Modular Flooring.” Used everywhere from airplane hangars to health clubs, the durable and colorful floors can give your garage sharp and functional style in less than a day. The tiles are resistant to slips, fading, and stains and feature a channeled design which keeps the surface dry by allowing dirt, debris, and liquids to flow through. Quick tidying is a snap with a shop vac or pressure washer, or use a mop and degreaser for deeper cleanings. In the rare case that a tile may become damaged, it can simply be replaced, and if you decide to move, pop them apart and take them along!
Let your imagination run wild when it comes to customizing your epoxy or Swisstrax floor, and take your garage to the next level. Swisstrax tiles come in 18 different colors that can be mixed and matched to create designs, monograms, borders, or checkered floors that match your home’s décor or represent your favorite sports team. The epoxy floor base coat is available in a variety of colors, along with the flakes that mimic beautiful natural finishes such as quartz and marble, and come in a range of sizes from a chunky 1″ to a tiny 1/16″.
Just like a designer accessory or piece of clothing can dress up an outfit, a beautiful floor can make your entire garage appear clean and attractive. Chris McKenry and his team at Designer Garages in West Knoxville are ready to help you choose the right flooring for your needs and make the most of the endless design options.
