How To Choose The Right Garage Floor Coating
It won’t matter if you have the shiniest of shiny chrome shelves and top of the line tools if your floor looks like it plays host to a demolition derby every day. If you’re going for looks and function, why not go floor to ceiling?
You have several options when it comes to flooring in your garage and which one is right for you will depend on how you are intending to use it.
Polyaspartic floor coating is a quick curing and long lasting floor finishing product. Though it does require a professional installation it is quickly becoming a favorite of homeowners due to its strength, durability and speed of instillation. Much more resistant to staining and uv damage, the polyaspartic option is also extremely resistant to abrasions, nicks, and chips, which every garage mechanic or hobbyist can appreciate.
Even if the main purpose of your garage is indoor storage of vehicles, yard maintenance equipment, sports equipment, or plain household storage, it’s important to choose a garage floor coating that will stand the test of time.
Though a polyapartic floor coating is a little pricier than some other options, its durability makes it an investment in your home and its possible future sale or equity.
Like the floors in your home, there is simply no way to get away from or to fully hide a problem floor. Whether it is due to staining, cracking, peeling or chipping, it reflects poorly on your home and your record of upkeep.
If you’re looking to eventually sell, a useable workspace in the garage, complete with a professionally finished garage floor will work in your favor with buyers and can increase your selling price substantially. If you have created a completely finished area, your garage can almost be considered a bonus room as it is then a workable space.
Even if you’re not planning to sell, storage and work areas are always a problem, so why not make your garage a proper extension of your home?
