Benefits of Phoenix Epoxy Floor Coating
Wondering why you should consider adding an epoxy floor coating to your garage? Here are a few reasons:
- The ability to add a personal, low-maintenance touch to the garage aesthetics. Epoxy floors are available in many different colors and designs. It can transform your Phoenix garage into a complete and sleek area.
- Epoxy can protect against stains, spills, and chemical damage. They are resistant to a large number of chemicals such as solvents and acids. Epoxy features many kinds of resistance which add to its reputation and bears the brunt of heavy chock, heat, chemicals and water. It is great for your Phoenix garage since cars emit many corrosive chemicals.
- You will enjoy long-lasting shock and slip resistance for everyday garage use. Epoxy will not need to be redone for an extended amount of time. The coating endures longer than tile, and wood flooring because of its durable and protective qualities. The longevity reinforces the cost-effective advantages for your nearby Phoenix home.
Types of Epoxy Floor Coating in Phoenix, AZ
Epoxy comes in multiple styles, including single-color, full-flake and metallic finishes. A1 Garage Door Service in nearby Phoenix specializes in top-of-the-line full-flake and metallic options, which create a more aesthetically pleasing floor and offer other benefits, as well.
Full-Flake Epoxy: The most common type of floor coating, full-flake floors are slip- and shock-resistant because of the coating’s composition. They’re also less abrasive than concrete, making them a welcome addition to your garage.
Metallic Epoxy: Metallic coatings incorporate the use of different metallic powder colors into clear epoxy to create exotic and unique designs.
A1 Garage Door Service uses commercial-grade epoxy for residential garages. Our polyaspartic clear coating is rated at three times the standard level for hydro-static pressure and includes a thicker topcoat for added protection not offered by urethane-based products.
The Preparation Process
Our team of factory-certified installers follows a structured process for ensuring your epoxy floor coating is properly applied for long-lasting benefit. This process includes:
- We diamond-grind the existing floor using OSHA-approved equipment to prepare the surface to bond with the coating. This process opens the capillaries in the surface, which absorb the coating mixture.
- Next, we mix the material for the 100-percent solid epoxy coating and apply a base coat to the entire surface of the floor.
- While the base coat is still wet, we spread the flakes across the floor to give it a signature look.
- Once the base coat dries, we scrape the floor, remove excess flakes and vacuum.
- Lastly, we apply the polyaspartic clear coat finish, which pulls everything together.
- A day later, you’ll be able to walk on your floor and return your belongings to their rightful place.
Additionally, as thank you for choosing A1 Garage Door, we’ll add a complimentary new bottom rubber to your garage space, providing insulation and helping keep insects and rodents out of your home.

The process of applying epoxy floor coating requires proper preparation, technical and chemical knowledge, and a precise eye for detail. If you’re investing in doing more with your garage floor, you want to ensure you will be satisfied with the results.
