If you’re looking to make a change that boosts both the function and style of your garage, a garage floor coating is one of the best investments you can make. Unfortunately, there have been a lot of misunderstandings regarding the benefits of installing a floor coating in your home, and how to make the best choice for your needs and budget. We asked our local concrete coating experts to weigh in on the main considerations homeowners should make before making a final decision.
The Benefits of Opting for a Garage Floor Coating
Many naysayers have been circulating the myth that a garage floor coating is just a fancy term for “paint.” While your epoxy or polyuria floor coating will go on like paint, it is immeasurably stronger. Here are some of the main benefits of a heavy-duty concrete coating:
The final product is a durable film composed of epoxy resins and special hardeners
Smooths over cracks, bumps, and chips on your concrete floor
Grip-friendly finish enhances safety
Impermeable barrier stops chemicals, dirt, and debris from seeping through cracks in your concrete
Polished finish looks great and is easily maintained (it only requires a quick wipe to be cleaned!)
Final design can be customized to suit your aesthetic preferences
Should you DIY or Hire Professional Concrete Coating Installers?
There are certainly no shortages of DIY concrete coating kits, and many homeowners see them as a cost-effective alternative. However, once you factor in durability, time, and material costs, hiring professionals is the way to go. Certified installers know exactly how to prepare your new floor to ensure maximum durability.
Here at Symphony Concrete Coatings, our factory-trained garage installers begin by preparing your concrete floor. We make sure to remove loose cement paste, surface contaminants, and uneven spots, before roughening the surface to enhance the adhesion of your floor coating. We then coat your floor with a perfect evenness that extends all the way to the walls to ensure cleaning is a breeze.
