So you may be thinking of a garage floor but don’t really know if this a right project to address right now or if it is something you can justify or perhaps convince your significant other if this is worth it. I often am asked about the benefits of a garage floor coating and there are actually several. Overall, the floor coating will a terrific appearance, help protect and enhance the investment in your home along with several other benefits. This is the Part 1 of 3 sections on this topic.
Reason #1: Greater Appearance – Most garage floors are a drab grey color and likely have a number of stains from various items such as the automobiles, yard equipment, etc. After a garage floor coating is installed it is a dramatic appearance improvement which is likely more consistent with the overall appearance of the home/landscaping, etc. There are a number of color options to choose from to properly blend with the overall appearance of your home. The appearance in the garage will now be something you are proud of and will enjoy sharing with others.
Reason #2: Easier to Keep Clean – You have probably noticed those stains on the current floor and that occurs since the concrete can be very porous and can allow the dirt and oil to seep into the concrete and create stains which are virtually impossible to remove. As a result, those stains persist and are very unsightly. When properly installed, a garage floor coating will create a protective shield over the concrete surface which to not allow the dirt, oil, etc. to enter the concrete and create stains. For example, if oil gets on the surface, simply take a paper towel or rag and wipe it off since the oil will simple “bead-up” making it extremely easy to clean.
Reason #3: Brighter Area – After providing our terrific topcoat, the surface of the floor has more of a glossy appearance and the garage lighting and sunlight have a tendency to bounce the light resulting in a brighter area. This is very helpful as many garages can be dingy and somewhat dark – the garage floor coatings can help provide the improved brightness and greater visibility.
