3 Signs It’s Time For a New Floor Coating Installation

So you know your residential or commercial floors have received coating installations in the past, but it’s starting to look like it has been a long time since they have been worked on, repaired, or resurfaced. Not only that, your floors are showing obvious signs of wear and tear which is totally normal, especially for older, commercial spaces like automotive repair shops. If you suspect that it is time for your floor to get a new coating installation, but you don’t know for sure, here are the top three signs that your floors would benefit from a new coating. 

  1. The Weather Has Not Been Too Kind to Your Floors: While there are plenty of different factors that could contribute to the wear and tear of your floors, one that is quite common is harsh weather. If you live in a region where there are brutal, snowy winters and you own a garage, it’s likely that salt poured on icy roads has made its way into your garage. The salt is bad for your floors because it steadily eats away at the surface and makes it more susceptible to added wear and tear. When your floor is exposed to lots of water or frost, these elements can lead to unwanted expansion of the floor surface, followed by aesthetically unpleasing and potentially dangerous cracks. If it looks like your floor has spots where there is corrosion, cracks, or other forms of breakdown from extreme weather, you will want to call in a professional to inspect the floors and tell you whether or not a new floor coating installation needs to be done.
  2. Stains: This is one of the most obvious signs that a floor surface might need some work, especially if you operate a commercial space in which you conduct business and want to maintain a clean, professional image. Floors can become stained from a multitude of things including water, oil, marks from dirty tires, or paint splattering. The good news is that a stained floor is an easier fix than most problems and a new epoxy coating won’t just cover the strains and other damage, it will keep the floor safe from future spills and stains. Investing in a brand new epoxy floor coating is a wise move, particularly for automotive shop owners who want pristine floors that can easily and effectively be cleaned after any spills, leaving no stains behind.
  3. Pits Are Starting to Form in The Floor: For anyone who owns a garage floor that was painted and coated with sub par materials initially, you will likely have to deal with a corroding floor filled with pits forming throughout it. And when your floor is exposed to frost, ice, and water, this corroding occurs at a faster rate. When you notice that your floor has formed more pits than usual, it is a good indication that it is time to repair and refinish the floor, specifically with an epoxy coating. Once your floor is finished with an epoxy coating, it will not only repair all the pitted areas, but prevent your floor from being at risk for corrosion and more pits forming. The epoxy coating will also protect your floors with its stain-resistance and scratch-resistance to enhance the appearance of the floor and lengthen its lifespan.
