Your garage gets a lot of wear and tear. Whether you use it as the space to store your vehicles, or it serves other purposes and functions, you want and need your floor to last. Especially if you live in Minnesota, garage floor coatings are a great idea. Having your garage floor professionally coated means that it will not only be cleaner, but stronger as well.
A Cleaner Option
When you have a concrete floor, you probably notice that no matter how often you sweep it off, there always seems to be dust. This is because the concrete wears down, and as it does so, it flakes off dust. Therefore, when you simply have a plain concrete floor, you will always lose the battle of trying to keep your garage clean.
If however, you decide on a professional coating for your floor, it will provide not only an attractive appearance, but will also protect your floor from wearing down – removing the cause of the problem.
Especially if you use your garage as additional space for your home, this solution comes in handy. You can even decide to coat your floor coated nice textured look that includes chip (giving it a natural stone like finish), which means that you won’t be embarrassed to use it and show it off.
For example, you may use your garage when hosting an outdoor party, either as a space for the food or as a backup plan in case of inclement weather. Either way, having a coated floor will improve your party. If food or drink get spilled, you can easily clean it, unlike plain concrete that stains too easily. Also, if you own antique cars, you’ll be much happier storing them in a clean space rather than an old and broken-down concrete garage.
A Floor That Can Handle The Weather And You
When you live in Minnesota, the summers get hot and the winters get cold. A coated garage floor will be able to take on the elements in each case, and still look good. Especially during the winter, when your shoes or wheels carry in salt residue, the floor won’t stain and can be easily cleaned.
In addition, chip coating will make your garage floor skid resistant. Not only does your vehicle gain traction when it brings in slush and snow, but you can also safely walk across the garage floor without the fear of falling.
If you like working on your vehicles in the garage, coating also helps your cause. If you spill any oil, gas, dirt, or other car related fluids onto the floor, you can easily clean it off. So, if you accidentally spill gasoline on the floor, you can wipe it up and don’t have to worry about gas seeping into the floor to leave your garage with a constant, pungent odor.
Set Your Garage Above The Rest
If you are thinking about selling your home, you should also consider a coating. Not only will it help to revitalize your worn-down and stained concrete floor, but it will set your home apart from others. When a potential buyer walks in and sees a coated garage floor, their impression of the space will be fresh and clean If home buyers see damage or age, it can turn them off. Having a nice clean floor will make the garage a bonus to the house, increasing its appeal compared to others in the neighborhood.
Lastly, coating also works if you are just looking to improve the appearance and function of your garage floor. Whether you want it simply to look good, or you want to be able to use the space for other things, you’ll be happy to have invested in a floor coating. Regardless of whether you want solid color, partial chip, or a full chip floor, you can improve the space as a whole. To learn more, please contact us.
