Nowadays, garages are used for much more than just housing your vehicle. They see a lot of foot traffic, as about 70% of homeowners exit their house through their garage. Whether you use it as storage or work out of it on a daily basis, every garage can benefit from adding an epoxy coating. Don’t believe us? Here are just a few benefits of applying a garage floor coating to your space.
More than any other floor in your home, concrete garage floors can take quite the beating on a daily basis, particularly if you park in the garage often or use it as a workshop. Regardless, it’s constantly subjected to wear and tear from water, debris, dirt and other coarse or corrosive materials. With the addition of a floor coating, you can protect your garage floor from these hazards. You also don’t have to worry about stains, abrasions, chipping or cracking, as floors coated in epoxy are much more durable than traditional concrete.
When you look at a concrete floor, there isn’t much to get excited about. However, if you really want your concrete garage floors to shine, then applying a floor coating is the way to go. Available in a wide variety of styles and colours to choose from, you can create the perfect look you’ve always dreamed of. Your finished floors will look like a purposeful part of your home’s design rather than just an afterthought. Adding a coating will also minimize any imperfections that occurred when the concrete was initially poured.
It’s quite easy to maintain concrete coatings, as they seal dirt and debris from seeping into the concrete. All you need to do is sweep away the dirt, or mop up any spills using soap and water, and you’re done. Unless you have a lot of debris covering your floor, this shouldn’t take you long to do at all. As well, concrete coatings don’t create dust like unsealed concrete. This makes your floors much easier to clean and keep spotless.
A lot of concrete floor coatings either water or moisture resistant, a perfect feature when dealing with garages. For instance, if you were to spill oil or chemicals onto a concrete floor, it would take time and caution to properly clean it up. It’s also likely that there would be a stain left behind due to seepage while you were in the process of cleaning the spill. With the addition of a coating or concrete polish, you don’t have to worry about the mess penetrating the concrete and becoming a permanent fixture on your floor. When you consider everything that falls onto your garage floor, you’ll be thankful for the protective coating.
