A garage is not just a barn for a vehicle. Nowadays, people use it as a storage unit, a workshop, or even as a recreational area. With all these activities going on day in and day out, imagine how much damage the garage flooring acquires. While some choose vinyl tiles, rubber mats, and other flooring materials in the garage, not everyone can say that these are efficient and affordable. Fortunately, there are coatings that can be installed on existing garage floors to make them more appealing and durable.
Decorative concrete is an affordable way of reinventing garages, not only in form but also in function. These coatings make surfaces that are tough as nails, seamless, and damage-resistant. Homeowners would be glad to know that these coatings can be used to repair minimal surface damage on garage floors.
Highly Recommended Garage Floor Coatings
Resurfacing concrete is one of the most popular repair and remodeling options nowadays, both in residential and commercial industries. It would be such a relief to not have to remove and replace existing garage floor slabs. Here are the top coatings for use in garages:
- Epoxy Flooring – Epoxy is a two-part material that hardens to a super tough material, perfect for hard-working garage floors. Equal amounts of resin and hardener are mixed and blended well together before application. The surface it creates is seamless, damage-resistant, and appealing. If you want something more appealing, like granite or terrazzo, paint chips can be broadcasted on the newly installed coating for a more decorative look. This, however, needs to be only installed on garage floors that are not often exposed to sunlight. An epoxy flooring garage may yellow due to its sensitivity to UV rays.
- Polyurea Polyaspartic Coating – Similar to epoxy, this coating is also a mix of two materials. The difference is its fast-drying feature. It is important that only an experienced contractor would handle the installation because of its short pot life. It needs to be laid out evenly as quickly and efficiently as possible before it starts to harden and cure. It can also be customized with paint chips. Another notable feature of this epoxy alternative is that this can be used on both indoor and outdoor concrete surfaces.
