When you live in a state where brutal weather is easy to come by, then it’s important to find ways to protect your garage floor. So when you live in Wisconsin, garage floor coatings are a must. To understand why they that is the case, here are some of the benefits of this technique and finish.
1. Better than Regular Concrete
You will find that your concrete floors are very hard to keep clean. Not that you need a spotless floor, but during winter, it’s generally a good idea to sweep away salt and other debris that comes in on your tires. But in doing so, you will find that the salt will leave residue on your concrete surface.
Additionally, if your garage serves any other purposes and you try to clean the floor, you’ll come to find that there always seems to be dust on the floor. That’s because every time you step or drive on it, a small amount of concrete particles are kicked up, which produces the dust. Getting your garage floor coated means being able to say goodbye to both dust and salt residue.
2. Increase Durability
Durability is another important factor when it comes to your garage floor. If you’re like most people, you’re going to be driving in your garage and using it every day. Through a polyurea coating, you’ll significantly improve the durability compared to non-coated floors.
The type of coating we use is flexible, which means that when the weather changes, it will naturally expand and contract without causing any breaks. And it is impervious to stains, so salt, oil, gas, grease, and acids can fall onto the surface and be easily cleaned without leaving a mark. This is particularly useful if you enjoy working on your vehicles but hate getting the floor messy.
Also, this protective layer over your garage floor will keep it from breaking down. Over time, the salt and water that will get on the floor can seep into the concrete, causing pitting and divots. A coating will protect your floor and prevent that from happening.
3. Get Exactly What You Want
It’s not only important to get your garage floor to function better, but a coating is also a great opportunity to improve its appearance. First, you can choose between a solid color surface and a chip surface. A chip surface is ideal for most garages, because it provides a bit of texture that allows both you and your vehicle to increase your grip in case of snow or water on the floor.
No matter your taste, you’ll be able to find a finish that goes with your home and your style. Additionally, you can rest assured knowing that it won’t fade over time. This is especially important if your garage has windows or garage doors with windows, because the floor will continue look consistent as it ages, instead of showing UV dulling in the areas that are regularly exposed to sunlight.
When you live in Wisconsin, you get to experience the hot weather of the summer and the brutal cold temperatures and blustery snow of the winter. This weather can be hard on concrete surfaces. But with a garage floor coating that uses state of the art polyureas, you’ll be sure to get exactly what you want.
A coated garage floor will not only look better, but will function much better for you as well. And of course, you should always aim to work with professionals in order to ensure that you are getting the best products, the most consistent coat, and the best adhesion.
