Is a garage floor with epoxy slippery?
The short answer is no. With the texture we leave behind with our Amazing Garage Floors, you will find the floor has much more slip resistance than most plain concrete garage floor finishes. Other cleaners, may leave a residue that when water gets added in may add to the slip hazard. However, as a rule our floors have more, not less traction than the floor that was existing.
