Garage Floor Resurfacing Made Simple


The garage floor sees a lot of traffic and it’s also one area that people didn’t really pay much attention to up until recently. Today, people want to add the wow factor to their garages as well. They want to show off their classy cars and have garage flooring that’s equally fancy. However, very few understand what really goes into resurfacing the garage floor. Garage Floor Resurfacing Made Simple

We at Custom Concrete Floors always advise our clients to consider the available options before starting any project. Here are some points for you to consider before you start resurfacing your garage floors.

Textured vs. Smooth

Consider what you’re going to use your garage for. If you aim to just keep your cars in there and show them off to your entire neighborhood, you can opt for smooth surfaces. There are three coatings that’ll give you a smooth, nearly glass-like surface-epoxy, latex, and polyurethane.

  • Epoxy is the most popular coating, especially in DIY projects. It’s very affordable and will give your floors a great finish. It’s also chemical resistant. However, it may fade easily when exposed to UV rays depending on the layout of your garage and windows.
  • Polyurethane is the most expensive of the lot, but it’s very durable. It has great chemical resistance and is easy to clean up after application. You’ll also get a variety of finish options.

If you actually plan to work in the garage, tinkering with the engine, conducting repairs, etc, a textured surface would be a better option for you. With oil spillage, a smooth surface can be problematic and slippery.

Exposure

If you want to show off your garage and are likely to keep the door open, you need to pick coatings that would withstand sunlight. As mentioned earlier, Epoxy coatings – when not installed properly, might tend to fade and latex can peel if it gets hot. Exposing these surfaces to the sun isn’t a good idea. You might try a textured surface or a polyurethane coating in such cases.

At Custom Concrete Floors, we believe that choosing a simple coating over expensive finishes is the best idea. A large portion of the floor is going to be covered by your vehicles, after all.
