When you think of garage floors, the most common thought that comes to mind are dirty and dented with traces of grease and paint stains all over. Although we have come to accept that garage floors are meant to be this way, decorative concrete provides solutions that show otherwise. Concrete coatings and overlays can transform drab garage flooring into a delightful surface that can withstand any type of damaging element.
Highly Recommended Garage Flooring Options
Now is the time to look beyond the usual and raise the bar a little bit. Decorative concrete garage flooring is the hottest trend nowadays. Not only are the floors updated with a whole new look, it is only made tougher and more durable. Here are the ideal options for transforming old and damage garage flooring into elegant and long-lasting surfaces:
- Epoxy Flooring – Epoxy is one of the toughest types of material known today. It consists of equal parts of an epoxy resin and a polyamine hardener that, when combined, cures to a very tough material perfect for use on garage floors. It comes in a variety of colors but it can be customized further by broadcasting micro paint chips on a newly installed epoxy floor coating. The result of an epoxy flooring garage is a surface similar to terrazzo or granite.
- Polyurea Polyaspartic Coating – Polyaspartic, as it is more commonly known, is also a two-part material similar to epoxy. One distinct attribute of this material over epoxy is that it dries pretty quickly. This fast-drying material can be installed and be completely cured just within 24 hours. It can also be customized with multi-colored paint chips if desired.
Maintaining Garage Floor Coatings
If you do choose to resurface garage floors with epoxy or polyurea polyaspartic coatings, you can rest assured that you won’t have to deal with tedious cleaning and maintenance. These coatings yield a seamless surface that is smooth and non-absorbent. Regular sweeping and occasional mopping will keep the garage floor in a clean and well-kept condition. Spills should wipe off easily and leave no trace whatsoever. If you wish to use a cleaning agent, make sure to consult the installer to check if it is safe enough to use one the coating.
