The Importance of Protecting Concrete Floors

If you plan on converting your garage into an entertainment room, your garage floor becomes exposed to accidental spills, moisture damage, and heavy foot traffic. Garage floor coatings protect concrete surfaces from wear and illuminate garage spaces. If you notice any of the following signs of a damaged concrete floor, consider installing a brand-new polyaspartic floor coating:

  • Chipping, cracking or spalling.
  • Discoloration or yellowing
  • Musty odor
  • Rust damage
  • Moisture damage
  • Uneven floor texture
  • Formation of potholes

Concrete coating professionals use advanced tools and techniques to apply polyaspartic coatings in less than a day. Storebought floor coatings, such as liquid epoxies, and rubber, fail to protect concrete floors from UV radiation, moisture damage, and stains. Polyaspartic coatings may last over 25 years if cleaned and maintained regularly.

Many construction companies use polyaspartic coatings to protect heavy machinery from damage when carrying heavy, sharp objects. The durable film of polyaspartic coatings remains slip- and abrasion-resistant. Speak to your local concrete coating experts for help finding the perfect concrete coating for your garage.

New Shelving

Old plywood shelves risk breaking, rotting, and developing moisture damage. To improve the functionality and appearance of your garage, think about installing new custom cabinets. Cabinets constructed of durable hardwood and metal last much longer than plywood and add significant aesthetic value to garages.

Many custom cabinet makers happily construct tables, adjustable shelving, and freestanding cabinets to meet your needs. Metal cabinets have chemical resistance properties, while hardwood custom cabinets turn dimly lit garages into works of art. No matter what cabinets you choose, newly installed custom cabinets remain a must-have for garage conversion projects.

Clean Your Garage

Cobwebs, dust accumulation, and moisture-damaged concrete floors disrupt garage renovation projects. Before selecting garage floor coatings or custom cabinets, always thoroughly clean your garage. Uncleaned surfaces in your garage may attract unwanted pests, reduce the air quality of your garage, and lead to widespread moisture damage.

Create a cleaning schedule for your garage that includes weekly sweeping, mopping, and dusting. Even small amounts of dirt and debris may scratch porous concrete floors. Enter the holiday season confidently by preparing your garage for your next family gathering!
