Your garage floor undergoes a lot of wear and tear over time. The chemicals used in road salt, fluids from vehicles, and the elements can cause unsightly stains and extensive damage. Many building materials cannot withstand the punishment.
Epoxy and concrete are the two most popular flooring options for garages. It is known for its superior ability to withstand the elements. It doesn’t burn, rust or rot. Famed for its unparalleled durability, longevity, and resilience, concrete is a popular option for different construction applications.
Many garage floor coating companies in Sonoma and elsewhere offer different flooring options.
If you are working with a tight budget and want to keep costs down, your contractor will use a simple two-step step process. The professional will begin by cleaning the surface with industrial-grade deep concrete high-pressure sprayers. Next, a layer of clear coat is sprayed on top of the floor to create a chemically resistant surface. You can either choose a new stain color or retain the original concrete coloring.
Alternatively, you can have a lasting prime coat designed to toughen the base level of your flooring by filling the pores applied. The prime coat will prevent moisture from penetrating the surface. Your contractor will install a top coat to protect the floor against the elements.
Some contractors use two coats of poly hybrid coatings and a poly hybrid clear coat on top. Between the two types of coating, a layer of UV-protected vinyl chips is added to increase the visual appeal of the floor.
Some concrete flooring options come with a full spectrum of vinyl chips, allowing you to customize your floor the way you want. You also get to choose the color that best matches your exterior.
Whatever option you choose, follow maintenance tips from your installer. Clean your concrete floor periodically. Get rid of stains as they happen. Seal your concrete to extend its service life.
