It’s almost inevitable: Whenever you open your garage on a rainy or snowy day, water may find its way inside. Similarly, using your garage as a workshop or parking raises the chances that you’ll have to deal with the occasional oil spill, grease, or other chemicals.
Keep reading to learn how coating your garage floor helps protect your concrete floors from moisture, chemicals, and other substances.
Benefits of Garage Coatings
Coating your garage floor offers several benefits, including the following:
Protection from Moisture Damage
When choosing garage floor coating options, many people opt for cement or concrete. Unfortunately, excess moisture can easily damage even the most well-installed cement floor.
Installing a garage coating on your floor adds an impervious barrier on top of the bare concrete. This seal prevents water and moisture from seeping through the concrete surface, so you won’t have to worry about moisture or other liquids damaging your floor.
Many garages require chemical-resistant flooring. An unprotected floor allows chemicals and acids to break down the concrete and weaken the floor’s surface. In time, the concrete may develop cracks and pits or even fall apart.
Well-installed epoxy floor coatings will offer the protection your garage needs to withstand corrosive elements, from oil and paint to grease and brake fluid. Polyaspartic coatings take protection to the next level by offering enhanced durability, UV stability, and better color retention.
Traditional garages have a reputation for being the ugliest part of the house. Most people park their cars or store unwanted items in their garages. Coating your garage floor can elevate your space and make it more visually appealing.
A high-quality floor coating boosts your property’s curb appeal by giving you a nice, smooth garage floor. Chips and peels will no longer rob your floor of its beauty and shine. Garage coatings also come in wide-ranging colors and styles to suit varying tastes and preferences.
We can customize your garage flooring, from classic designs to a sleek and luxurious finish. Trust us to bring our vision to reality.
Container spills and leaky cars can leave various stains on your garage floor. With a floor coating, you don’t have to stress about unsightly stains that may prove stubborn to remove.
Our floor coating systems boast superior stain resistance. They prevent oil, liquids, dirt, and grime from penetrating the floor, making stain removal and overall cleaning a breeze.
Coating your garage floor extends its useful life. Resistance to stains, shock, chemicals, and other substances means your coating will last longer than other flooring materials, such as wooden, tile, or carpet flooring.
Because of its durability, expect your floor to maintain its beautiful appearance for several years. So, if you want to avoid the hassle of replacing or changing your floor every couple of years, consider investing in polyaspartic floor coatings.
Easy Cleaning and Maintenance
Garage floor epoxy coatings make cleaning and maintenance a hassle-free process. During Birmingham winters, you likely bring snow, road salt, and dirt into your garage floor. With a high-quality coating, mopping the floor or hosing it off should restore it to pristine condition.
In fair weather conditions, simply sweep the floor with a soft broom or vacuum to keep it looking as good as new. Regular cleaning removes dirt, debris, and any other residue that may collect oil and dirt. Proper maintenance also removes any particles that may damage the floor.
A safe environment protects you and the people with access to the area. Slips, trips, and falls can occur in any setting, even your garage.
With garage coatings, adding slip-resistant additives lowers the risk of accidents and provides a safer walking area for others while providing good looks, practicality, and durability. The seamless nature of a floor coating also minimizes the risk of accidents in your garage.
We have different levels of slip-resistant coating options and additives suitable for internal and external use. Reach out for help in determining what will work best for your garage.
Coating your floor may cost less per square foot compared to installing brand-new flooring. Because you can install a floor coating on top of your existing floor, such as concrete, you don’t have to spend extra for floor removal. In most cases, a few quick repairs create the ideal surface to install a coating.
For garage floor coating, we recommend you consider how much you plan to invest in floor protection and how you use your garage. Overall, spare time and resources to clean your garage floor and fix minor damages to prevent them from getting bigger.
You also want to minimize spillage and abrasion to improve the life of your garage floor coating.
