Factors to Consider When Choosing a Garage Floor Coating
During the last year or so, the economic upswing has individuals and businesses looking to improve their living and working spaces. Two elements of our personal and working spheres we are looking to upgrade are our garage floors. We want better looking and better performing surfaces and a high-quality garage floor coating is one way to do that.
We at Rust Bullet, LLC recently announced the launch of DuraGrade Concrete, the best garage floor coating on the market. Rust Bullet® Color Flakes can be applied on top of DuraGrade Concrete for a stylistic finish, and DuraGrade Clear can be used as a sleek topcoat for maximum aesthetic value.
Which Factors Should I Consider When Choosing a Garage Floor Coating?
- Style: whether you are a craftsperson that works out of your garage or you own your city’s hottest car showroom, an attractive garage floor coating speaks volumes about your quality of work.
- Durability: if you go through the work to apply a beautiful coating to your garage floor, don’t you want it to last for as long as possible? A coating that starts chipping after months of use is not an investment you want to make.
- Environmental Impact: there are some hazardous materials out there that can seal your garage floor and prevent corrosion, but do you really want to pollute your lungs and neighborhood with volatile organic compounds (VOCs)? As your floor coating dries, VOCs are emitted into surrounding air and can cause dizziness, headaches, and other undesired effects. The Environmental Protection Agency has suggested that some VOCs might be carcinogens.
- Ease of Coating Application: Untreated concrete is often too smooth and hard to effectively accept paints and sealants. Some garage floor coating products require the application of acid etching or concrete grinding before the coating can be applied. Acid etching uses a chemical to open the pores of the concrete, so they will more readily accept the paint or sealant. Concrete grinding creates the same effect, but with a machine that abrades the concrete.
