Garage Floor Coating Ideas


Most of us spend a lot of time and effort keeping the kitchen floor clean and sanitized. We buy so many products to get rid of stubborn stains from the kitchen floors. This  basement floor

happens a lot because the kitchen floor and often the living room are the usual places where dirt is stuck. This makes us forget about the garage floor which also needs attention and cleaning. Garage floors are also subject to a lot of grease, dirt, oil spots and other kinds of substances. But there are simple remedies to get rid of these unsightly stains and one of these is using a garage floor coating. Adding this kind of floor coating enhances the look of your garage and your home as well. It can also be simply and quickly applied.

The most widely known floor coatings are epoxy, polyurethane and latex. The ideal paint to be applied on a concrete floor in a garage is epoxy. It allows for easy cleaning because epoxy can withstand hot or cold temperature which can directly influence how the stains will stick to your floor. It is also very pleasing to the eye. You can also choose from a variety of colors.

Then we have the latex coating which can also be used to cover your garage floor. Just apply primer as a first layer on the floor and then lastly finish it with a final coating. If it is dry already, the coating will surely protect your garage floor from damages caused by extreme weather changes and stains.

On the other hand, a polyurethane coating has a shinier effect and it is also more resistant to all kinds of substance and harsh elements. But the application is more difficult though. This can only be applied after a primer is already placed as a first coating. Polyurethane is also more expensive compared to the other types of coatings.

Some people are more creative because they mix epoxy and polyurethane. They want a unique look so they use both and apply it on their garage floor. This idea is quite good since using polyurethane after an epoxy coating can provide a stunning and long lasting finish for a long time.
