When choosing a flooring system for the parking garages of a condominium or apartment block, there are several things to consider.
The durability of the flooring is key to keeping residents of the building happy. Closing the parking area to replace a failed floor will be a major inconvenience to tenants, so condo managers need to select a hard-wearing floor that will last for many years.
Everlast® Epoxy flooring for condo garages and residential parking areas provides a flooring system that’s durable, easy to maintain, and has plenty of safety benefits too. If this sounds good, then read on to discover how epoxy flooring for resident’s garages can solve your condominium parking problems.
Hard-wearing and resistant to spills
Parking areas in apartment blocks are subjected to abuse on a daily basis from the constant movement of cars, leaking automotive fluids such as gasoline and oil, and any debris or moisture tracked in on car wheels during bad weather.
All these hazards can quickly take their toll on a regular concrete garage floor—and when left unprotected, the surface will soon start to deteriorate, leading to expensive repair bills and unhappy residents.
Everlast® Epoxy flooring has excellent chemical resistance against oils and chemicals, which means the garage floor will easily withstand fluid spills. We say this with the utmost confidence as our floors have been rigorously tested with a seven-day exposure to motor oil, hydraulic fluids, and gas and showed no sign of deterioration.
Flooring designed with safety in mind
We understand that condominium residents need to feel safe when using the parking facilities, and our epoxy flooring checks all the boxes for the safety of tenants and homeowners alike.
Everlast® Epoxy flooring for condo garages has a textured finish that provides slip-resistance and a safe walking surface for residents as they enter and exit the garage. Even in wet conditions, our floors do not become slippery, which provides excellent protection against slips and falls.
With a range of over 50 colors to choose from, it’s easy to clearly highlight walking zones to allow residents to move across the car parking area safely. We offer a “Safety Yellow” color to ensure walkways stand out—even in the darkest of parking areas.
Create a great first impression
The parking area is often the first place that prospective residents will visit, so creating a great first impression could be the difference between them becoming a paying tenant or walking away.
A pitted, cracked, and dirty car park floor will not set your visitors up for a great experience—however clean and spacious the living accommodation may be. But with seamless epoxy resin flooring, there will be no cracks or joints where the flooring can “lift” and nowhere for debris and bacteria to hide.
The result is a continuous floor that is strong enough to withstand constant foot traffic and the weight of cars without cracking, chipping, or forming a wear pattern.
Water and moisture protection
Parking facilities in condominiums and apartment blocks are often exposed to the elements. You would reasonably expect that a good quality concrete floor should withstand heavy downpours, but often the mix of ingredients within the concrete can affect its porosity, allowing water to seep into the substrate and cause damage.
Everlast® Epoxy flooring is completely waterproof, so even in the harshest weather conditions, there is no risk of moisture penetrating through the layers and damaging the subfloor.
Our flooring is a trowelable substance, which binds with the substrate and vulcanizes them together for a fully waterproof solution.
Many resin floor providers simply add a thin coat of top sealant to keep water out, but this only provides temporary protection; after a few months, this barrier can be eroded by the day-to-day use of the parking area, leaving the floor vulnerable to water ingression.
