When it comes to the world of garage flooring solutions, epoxy coatings have long been the go to for many individuals looking to improve the look of their floors.
Whether an adventurous car buff decides to brave the process alone, or the less tenacious acquire a more skilled technician, this process is anything but simplistic. Even if every step is executed perfectly, the end results can (and unfortunately often times do) fail to hold up to most homeowner’s long term expectations.
The perfect example of this can be seen in Jay Leno’s Big Dog Garage. It was expected that the flooring underneath this exquisite collection of automobiles would perform to the highest of standards, especially after investing tens of thousands of dollars into the coating. Unfortunately, like many epoxy floors before it, the Big Dog Garage floor began to show major sign of damage. From leaking brake fluids to hot tires, the crew would go through the daunting process of repairing the floor…over and over and over….finding that is was only a temporary solution. The question then became, “If not epoxy, what other viable options are available to transform an existing garage floor?” The answer was simple….Swisstrax Modular Flooring.
