You might think you’re saving money and time by leaving your concrete garage floor bare. However, such a decision can lead to costly repairs down the line due to damage caused by everyday use. Moreover, an untreated garage floor looks dull and dusty—an unpleasant eyesore that can potentially affect the value of your property.
Thinking of coating your garage floor? Don’t just use any product. We recommend using specially-formulated concrete garage floor paint for these reasons:
- Long-lasting results
Regular paints and elastomeric coatings don’t offer optimum impact and abrasion resistance. High-quality garage floor paints for concrete are polyurethane coatings with superior moisture and chemical resistance and outstanding adhesive properties. The surface will be resistant to damage caused by UV exposure, chemicals, chipping, and scratching, eliminating the need for reapplication after a few months or years.
- Safer and environmentally friendly
High-quality concrete garage floor paint is low in VOCs, making it compliant for use in all 50 states. It meets and exceeds the EPA standards for Potable Water, as it contains no heavy metals, zinc, chromates, or lead.
- Aesthetically pleasing finish
Floor coatings can brighten your garage and make it look cleaner and more pleasant. Top manufacturers offer concrete garage floor paints in a wide range of colors, with the option to customize when necessary. No matter what you choose, you can enjoy a beautiful glossy finish that lasts. You could even apply color flakes over the final wet coat of the paint, then finish with a clear protective coating to seal them in.
You can add an anti-skid finish to the concrete garage floor paint to improve traction when the surface becomes moist or wet. The coatings won’t deteriorate from hot tire pick-up while providing a protective layer that simplifies cleaning up oil, chemical spills, and grease.
- Easy to apply
High-quality concrete garage floor paint does not require much experience or professional tools. If you know how to clean a floor and use a paint roller or brush, you can do it yourself. Just be sure to invest in a high-performance and superior protective coating you can apply directly on your garage’s concrete surface without acid etching. Look for a low-VOC paint with outstanding adhesion for superior scratch, chemical, UV, and chip resistance.
