Concrete Garage Floors
Believe it or not, there are actually garages that people get excited to walk into based on the flooring alone. Garages are typically used as storage or workspaces, and not much thought ever goes into the flooring. When it does, it is likely just a passing thought about how dirty it is. Our team at Stamped Concrete Aurora is here to show you that it doesn’t need to be that way. You can have a garage that is both great to look at and easy to keep clean at the same time.
Epoxy coatings are one of the best forms of protection you can give to your flooring through its thick resign and binding qualities. Concrete is a naturally porous material that quickly absorbs any liquids or oils it comes into contact with. An epoxy coating provides a high gloss finish that repels stains, making it easy to clean and low maintenance. Because of these qualities, it is exceptionally popular with all kinds of property owners from residential through to industrial.
When you don’t want to have an epoxy coating, there are many other alternatives. Concrete sealer is one of them, designed to preserve and strengthen the integrity of concrete surfaces. A good quality sealer helps to repel stains, prevent liquid absorption and visible traffic marks from occurring. Without a coat of sealer, you leave your garage open to an accumulation of stains, whether it is just used to park your car or as a workshop. A coat of sealant should provide you with protection for a few years, depending on how heavily it is used. It can also be used over the top of paint, allowing you to customize your garage how you want.
It is becoming increasingly popular for residential properties to have an epoxy flooring in their basement or garage. These areas are storage areas, they are well known for being prone to stains from liquids and grease. If these stains go unnoticed and your concrete is left untreated, it can quickly give your home a rundown and unmaintained appearance. An epoxy coating helps you protect your flooring and give you an extra glossy shine. This makes it easier to clean, meaning you can get your hands dirty in the garage without worrying about your floor soaking it all up.
