Paint or Coating: Which is Best for Your Garage Floor?

As a homeowner, you have probably heard about epoxy, silicone, and acrylic garage floor coatings. Chances are, your neighbor or good friend has recently had a coating applied and has told anyone that will listen about the unbeatable benefits of these innovative coatings. But are coatings really that much more beneficial than traditional garage floor paint?

Garage Coatings Offer Superior Protection, While Paints Deliver Affordable Prices.


The fact is, your neighbor is right. Garage floor coatings come chalk full of great benefits like water and chemical resistance, protection from stains, impacts, and heavy weight, and a bright, uniform appearance. While more costly than traditional paint, all of these coatings can last up to a decade and provide protection for your garage floor that can’t be beaten.


Garage floor paints offer a uniform appearance that hides previous stains and flaws while protecting against new blemishes. These paints are scrubbable and offer wipe-off technology that makes almost any cleanup job a breeze.

However, garage floor coatings are considerably more costly than garage floor paint. Before applying a coating, consider how much, and what type of protection your floor needs. Do you need protection from a considerable amount of mechanic work, or are you looking for defense against Johnny’s bike or Suzie’s tie-dye project? When the reinforced protection isn’t needed, a top-quality garage floor paint application will work just as well and be considerably less expensive.
