Transform Your Garage into Usable Space 

For many of us, our garages become the catch-all of items from seasonal storage items to clothing that needs to be donated. Consequently, the garage becomes more of a storage area than a workshop. Thankfully, there are a few things you can do to transform your garage from a place where discarded home items go to a workshop you can be proud of. 

order and chaos signDeclutter 

Garages tend to be a dumping ground. Everything from broken tools, to holiday decorations get stashed in the garage. Start your garage transformation by decluttering. Take everything out and start sorting. Create a trash pile, donate pile, and a grouping of items that will need to find a place back in the garage. 

Once you have donated and taken a trip to the trash, you can start sorting what is left. Place “like” items together such as sporting equipment, lawn tools, bikes, and beach items. Knowing how much you have left that needs to go back into the garage will help you in your organization. 

Buy Organizers 

There are hundreds of bins, hooks, and shelving units that you can install to help get your remaining garage items up and off the floor. 

Find storage that can accommodate the items that you have. The combination of hanging and wall storage is quite amazing. The more you can combine like items and keep them organized together, the less cluttered your garage will get. 

Paint the Walls and Ceiling

Take the time before you start setting up your workspace or workshop to paint the interior of your garage. A simple white palette can brighten and lighten the area. It will also give you a good background to start mounting your storage units on the walls and ceiling. 

Paint is one of the most transformative and cost effective ways to change a space from drab and boring, to fresh and new. epoxy flooring

Epoxy Flooring

If your plan is to turn your garage into a workspace that may include use of chemicals, oil, and machinery, it may be a good idea to consider epoxy flooring. This type of flooring is durable, stain and heat resistant, and exceptionally easy to clean and maintain. 

Epoxy flooring also has a high level of shine that allows for a brightness to a usually dark area of your home. 

Create the Space You Want 

Whether you are hoping for a space to work on your cars, build and create, or maybe even have a crafting area, your garage can be a great area to clean out and transform. With a little bit of elbow grease and some professional painting and organizing, your garage can change in just a few short days from a dumping ground of household items, to a space you are proud of. 

Talk to our specialists about the type and techniques you may need to use for both painting and epoxy flooring in your garage workshop.

Epoxy for Your Main Living Areas

While everyone has most likely heard of epoxy floors and have probably seen them at use in stores, hospitals, garages, and basements, not everyone has heard of the most recent trend surrounding this flooring. Most recently, designers have started to install these durable, versatile, and easy-to-clean surfaces in the main living areas of a home! Kitchens, family rooms, bathrooms, and even bedrooms have been treated with epoxy for a unique design. 

A Little Background…

Epoxy has been around for decades and has really become the flooring of choice in commercial and industrial venues. This is mainly due to the durability and stain resistance when it comes to harsh chemicals being spilled or overuse in these locations. The affordability, longevity, and variety in styles made epoxy floor choices a no brainer for businesses like shops, garages, and other commercial/industrial workplaces. 

These same reasons are what make epoxy a perfect choice for your main living areas as well! Here’s why…

Easy To Clean 

Let’s take your kitchen for instance. If you have a tile or wood floor you are probably constantly cleaning up spills and messes from meals. You may even find marks, scrapes, and damage on the flooring. Epoxy is one of the easiest surfaces to clean along with the fact that it is practically indestructible. Drop any kind of kitchen dish on it and you will be out one dish, but your floor will remain unharmed. 

Transform a Floor into a Work of Art 

Many homeowners are also choosing epoxy in their main living areas because it is unique, one-of-a-kind, and can create a floor style that is not repeated anywhere. Epoxy comes in many colors and all sorts of techniques can be used to create a work of art on your floor that will outlast all of your other flooring choices.

Brighten Up a Room 

Then there are homeowners who are hoping to brighten a darker space. Epoxy is reflective which naturally magnifies the light in a room, whether natural or artificial. Epoxy has been known to brighten up rooms by 300%. If you live in a home that is lacking natural light, this may be the answer.

Three Reasons Why Epoxy Flooring is Great for Your Business

What’s the floor like in your company? Does it see a lot of traffic? Do you operate machinery or do messy work? Do you need something durable, slip resistant, and easy to maintain? Epoxy flooring might be right for your business. 

Jerry Enos Painting has professionally installed epoxy flooring for so many different types of businesses including: schools, warehouses, kennels, shops, bakeries, garages, breweries and the list could go on and on. Most people and businesses who choose this unique type of flooring have special needs in mind. They want a floor that is tough, long-lasting, and easy to maintain/clean. 

If you are considering an epoxy floor for your commercial, industrial, or residential flooring needs, here are the three top reasons why it can be great for your business. 

Tough and Durable 

Epoxy flooring is a non-porous resin that is stain resistant, scuff resistant, heat resistant, impact resistant, and fully sealed from moisture. Whew! That’s a durable and tough flooring we are talking about. Epoxy does not chip or crack and is also impact, heat, fire, and chemical resistant. That means that if the floor experiences high traffic, lots of spills (even chemical in nature), heavy machinery, or repetitive actions, our epoxy flooring can handle it. Epoxy is ideal for places like hospitals, garages, textile plants, industrial warehouses, schools, and food & beverage facilities. 

Long Lasting

Epoxy flooring can last for years since it does not scratch, scuff, or get damaged easily. That means once the initial cost of installation is paid, you are off the hook for years. This is ideal for businesses that need something durable and long-lasting. 

Easy to Maintain and Clean 

Most businesses that are looking for epoxy flooring are not just looking for a durable surface, but also one that is easy to clean and maintain over the years. Since epoxy flooring has an impenetrable coating that repels oil, grease and water, it is super easy to clean up spills and messes. It is also easy to maintain since it is a seamless surface with no nooks and crannies to clean. In addition, since it is impervious to harsh chemicals and the growth of mildew, it can be sterilized easily.

You can even choose the style and color you like to match your brand or business color palette. Call Jerry Enos Painting at 978-546-6843, or visit our website to find out more. 

The Many Advantages of Epoxy Flooring

Epoxy flooring is used in so many different venues including: schools, hospitals, kennels, chemical manufacturing facilities, retail stores, aircraft carriers, industrial manufacturing plants, and auto repair garages. The reason it is so ubiquitous is because of its positive characteristics including appearance, safety, cost, ease of cleaning, and durability. In fact, in recent years, more and more residential homeowners have been adding epoxy flooring to their garages, barns, and basement floors. Even small businesses are getting in on the act. Here are some of the reasons why as we explore the advantages of epoxy flooring.

Appearance

Epoxy flooring has a clean, smooth, and shiny appearance, thus making even the darkest garages or manufacturing spaces brighter. The reflection of light is one of the reasons why so many manufacturing facilities, hospitals, and schools use this type of floor covering. Adding brightness to a space can elevate mood and provide light for safety purposes.

Ease of Cleaning

Since epoxy flooring is highly resistant to just about everything – oil, gasoline, bleach, transmission fluid, cleansers, and so on – it makes for much easier clean up than a porous surface. Epoxy floors are almost impervious to most chemical spills without any negative effects on the coating. In addition, these floors also resistant to bacteria and germs, which makes them very easy to sanitize. This is why epoxy is an excellent choice for hospitals and clinics.

Durability

Like concrete, epoxy flooring is very durable. It will last many years with little upkeep. Occasionally, after heavy items have been dropped, or after years of wear and tear, you may need to re-apply a layer. Talk to your installer about maintenance.

Safety

Epoxy flooring is heat and water resistant. It can be installed using a non-skid finish to prevent slips and falls, as well. In addition, safety lines can be included in the design to keep walkways a safe distance from machinery, which is especially useful in larger manufacturing companies.

Options

Epoxy flooring can be installed in different colors and skid resistance levels. There are a number of choices that you can make regarding style, color, and brightness that can change the look and feel of the space you are refinishing.

Jerry Enos Painting can help you not only choose a color palette that can make his work space amazing, but also suggest an epoxy flooring that provides many benefits.

A custom epoxy floor is extremely durable, makes for easy clean up, and has many different finishing options that are non-skid for safety.

  • Interior Painting – A garage or workshop tends to be dark or lacking in color. Make your dad’s workshop “pop” with color and brighten his day! We can work with you to choose a color that can compliment the surrounding area and make his workshop an extension of your home.
  • Places for Knick-Knacks a Do-Dads – Every workshop needs places to hang tools and equipment. Make your dad’s day even more special by carving out a space just for him where every item has a storage area!

Garage Workshop Must-Haves – Epoxy Flooring!

Do you love working in your garage, or as my grandfather would say, “tinkering”? If you are like him, maybe you spend your weekends repairing, building, or restoring things like furniture, appliances, or maybe even the family car. If you could have a dream workshop in your garage, what would you include? A workbench? Top-of-the-line tools? Or maybe you would want to design your garage workshop from the ground up so that everything had a place and clean up was a breeze.

 

If you were to layout your dream garage workshop, what components would it have? Here are a few of our suggestions for a dream garage workshop.

 

  • Workspace – Ideally for anyone who likes to tinker, there should be a workspace that has room for whatever your hobby or passion is. A flat work area in a corner would be a great addition to any garage workshop.

 

  • Storage – Every workshop has tools so a must-have would be proper storage for all equipment. A dream garage workshop would include a hanging or resting place for every tool, preferably not on the work table!

 

  • Lighting and Ventilation – Having the proper lighting and ventilation can aid in health, safety, and accuracy when it comes to power tools.

Whether you are considering a residential or commercial application of epoxy, there are many benefits that can help change your ugly concrete flooring into a functional, durable, and professional looking space.

 

Benefits of Epoxy Flooring

  • Durable – The hardened and thick application that you get from epoxy creates a coating that is very durable and resilient to impacts such as: chipping, chemical spills, stains, and surface abrasion. Workshops, garages, and industrial areas tend to be places where tools and equipment are fairly heavy. There are no concerns if that equipment falls, breaks, or scrapes against the epoxy – it can handle that.
  • Easy Cleaning – Epoxy is not porous so cleaning is as easy as a brush down or mop up.
  • Safety – Epoxy coatings are also resistant to slippage, temperature, and even fire. That means a safer environment for your home or place of business.
  • Professional Looking – Epoxy finishings come in a variety of colors and can be painted with safety lines for businesses that need to denote safe distances from equipment.
  • Brightness – Epoxy high gloss finishes are usually reflective, which can make workspaces look and feel brighter. This may mean an improvement in lighting for workshops that have few windows.
  • Time Savings – Epoxy installation is fast and the curing time is minimal so your home, workshop, or industrial plant will have minimal downtime.

Reasons to Consider Epoxy Floors Indoors

Thinking about epoxy flooring probably calls to mind auto shops or commercial kitchens. You’re likely not thinking about living rooms, dens, bathrooms, and interior hallways. But as modern interior flooring goes, epoxy actually brings a lot of good things to the table!

First, it dries ultra hard, and it’s seamless, waterproof, and durable. It also has a fresh, modern look that a lot of people love and the color options available are nearly endless.

Installation of interior epoxy flooring is actually simple and fast. The application process is a lot like painting – floors are prepped and primed before the epoxy is applied. Then there is a curing period. Floors are quickly dry to the touch and very firm within the first twelve hours. After a day, the actual strength of epoxy becomes evident and by a week after the application, the total strength and durability of epoxy flooring is clear.

exposy floors indoors - interior epoxy floors

We’re seeing more homeowners opt for interior epoxy floors for mod finished basements, chic easy care kitchens, and bathrooms that look like they’re straight out of a spa. It’s an obvious choice for rooms where moisture is an issue. But it’s also amazing in high traffic areas where scratching or staining is a concern because epoxy is much harder wearing than wood or laminate and a lot easier to care for than either carpet or rugs.

It’s also just plain cooler than tile flooring, which tends to be laid out in plain rows in a single color. Epoxy flooring comes in a wide range of hues and can even be put down in artistic patterns. It can be made to look like marble or granite as in epoxy terrazzo flooring. Epoxy can even be mixed with different coatings to provide either texture or visual interest.

Don’t let epoxy’s industrial uses scare you off! Look around your home and ask yourself whether this brilliantly colored, hard-wearing option might be right for you and your family.
