Why install a garage floor coating?
If you want to transform your garage into a more attractive, functional and practical workspace, consider installing a high-quality garage floor coating. Garage floor coatings are tough and long-lasting. They protect your floor by making it resistant to abrasion, dings and scratches while working in your garage.
Garage floor coatings also make cleaning up your garage much easier. You can quickly clean up spills, even chemicals like oil, gasoline and road salts with mild soap and water. The smooth surface allows for easier sweeping, so you can tidy up debris when the floor is dry.
Garage floor coatings also allow you to get a little creative with design. You can choose from a variety of styles, granites, colours and the type of sealer. You can even have a design or logo put right into your floor.
There are a few options when it comes to floor coatings on the market. Surface Floors Inc. in Vancouver recommends using polyurea floor coatings for your garage or interior floors.
Why choose polyurea coatings?
This new floor coating technology is 20 times stronger than epoxy, which is the traditional floor coating product, and it is 98 per cent more flexible. It is incredibly durable and able to withstand bumps, scrapes and movement on the floor. We all know that tools get dropped and equipment gets dragged along the floor, but polyurea can take it. Even if your concrete twists and settles, your floor will be fine.
Polyurea is resistant to the typical chemicals that might spill in your garage. This includes salt from the winter roads, oil, gas and other harsh chemicals. If you have something spill on the floor, it can be wiped up easily with a wet rag or mop using mild soap.
Polyurea garage floor coatings can be installed in less than half the time it would take to install epoxy coatings. Traditional polyurea cures in just 5 to 15 seconds. Because of it’s durability, versatility and quick cure-time, this leading-edge product has been used for over 25 years in industrial applications such as pipeline coatings, tank linings, in water treatment plants, sewer linings and many others.
An added benefit to polyurea is that it is an environmentally friendly garage floor coating in both it’s creation and application. It contains near zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs) while traditional epoxy coatings emit greenhouse gases and fumes that can cause health concerns to workers.
Floor coatings beyond the garage!
Don’t limit using polyurea floor coatings to just the garage! Many homeowners are choosing to use this coating inside too! You can have it installed in your kitchen, bathroom and living room. It also works great for outdoor patios, swimming pools, decks and more.
Other industries Surface Floors works with include retail stores, schools, garages and shops, plants, loading docks, aircraft hangers, medical clinics and hospitals, restaurants, meeting areas and museums.
