Our poor garages don’t get much credit. They store our cars, our camping gear, and our garbage cans. We drag in dirt, leaves, snow and trash. Once or twice a year we may show our garage a little love by sweeping it out, maybe spraying it out if it’s lucky. When was the last time you really took a look at your garage and assessed it’s condition? Does it have any damage, cracking cement or oil spills? Are spiders and bugs setting up permanent camp in the corners? Yikes! We rely on our garages so much for protection and convenience that it might be time for you to look into into a few upgrades to take your garage to the next level, and increase the look and safety of your floor.
Concrete is the usual choice for garages. It’s cheap, durable and easy to maintain. Even if your cement is damaged, repair is easy. Sweep out your garage and look for any cracks or damage, then call an expert to quickly repair any damage that could spread or get worse. Hard Rock Concrete can come in and fill any cracks, and re-lay any sections that have seen better days.
Next, take a look at some fancy epoxy showroom floors. You might see them in a nice car dealership or on a luxury car television show. They are glossy and beautiful – way too much for your lowly garage, right? Wrong! You can easily enjoy an epoxy coating concrete floor in your own garage for an affordable price.
Epoxy coatings aren’t just for looks, although they do look very nice. Concrete is porous and can be damaged by oil, gasoline, chemicals and anything else that might pool there. Epoxy coatings are meant to seal off the concrete for longer lasting protection. Epoxy is waterproof and seamless, coating your entire concrete surface to protect from chemicals and wear & tear. Epoxy coatings are also non-toxic and give a no-skid surface for extra safety.
Probably the best thing about epoxy coatings is the beautiful finish. You can choose from a wide variety of colors to match your house, your car, or your favorite sports team! Some people even choose epoxy coatings for their basements simply because of the clean, beautiful finish. Instead of a boring cement floor you can have a safer, more durable floor that actually looks amazing!
Finally, call the professionals at Hard Rock Concrete Coatings! Epoxy coatings are smart and affordable, but installing them can be a little bit tricky. Because of the chemicals involved you just need to be very careful about ventilation and following the proper steps to ensure the epoxy coating adheres perfectly to the concrete floor. Calling the professionals for help or to take care of the work for you is a smart shortcut to getting the garage floor of your dreams. Giving your garage floor a little TLC with a fresh epoxy coating can actually make your garage safer and save you money in the long run with better cement protection.
