Not convinced a professional garage floor coating is worth the time and investment? Think again! Here are six reasons why your garage floor needs a high-quality floor coating system.
High-quality, professionally applied garage floor coating can last up to 15 years under normal conditions. The coating system is made with a resin that’s resistant to chemicals and stains, and it’s also impact resistant. That means you won’t have to worry about ruining your garage floor with spills, drops, or anything else really.
Some garage floor coating providers, including Boston Garage, offer a warranty against staining and defective materials for a minimum of five years. While the initial investment is large—averaging $2,500 to $3,500 for a two-car garage—it ends up saving many homeowners money in the long run because the materials last for so long.
Garage flooring systems are made with a resin that make them resistant to chemicals, stains, cracks, and scratches. It’s also impact-resistant, so no need to worry about damaging the garage floor with dropped tools or heavy cars. Your garage floor stays safe from heavy equipment and anything else you throw at it.
If you do accidentally spill something on the garage floor, most coatings are simple to clean. All it takes is a good sweeping or a spray from a garden hose. If the mess is serious, try adding a few drops of clear ammonia to your water before mopping or scrubbing.
Did you know that high-quality flooring in your garage can actually increase the overall value of your home? It’s a great selling point to include when you’re looking to make a move. Some buyers may even be willing to pay more than your asking price for a home that includes a garage with durable garage flooring.
When your garage floor is coated with a premium flooring system, you can rest easy knowing you won’t have to worry about slipping on a puddle of water caused by temperature fluctuations. In fact, many doctors’ offices and hospitals use the same type of flooring because it’s so safe.
High-performance coatings can be applied to almost any hard surface, which means it will work for most homes and spaces. No more pouring concrete for hours and wondering if the concrete will even work with your space.
Coatings only take 18 to 24 hours to cure before they can be walked on, so they’re a convenient option for your busy schedule. In contrast, polished concrete garage floors can take two to four weeks to cure and dry. Plus, many garage floor coatings can be used both indoors and outdoors. That means it’s great for garage floors, outdoor patios, and more. As long as UV protectant is added to the flooring system, the floor shouldn’t yellow over time.
