When you think about home renovations and improvements, garage floors aren’t the first thing that comes to mind. But did you know that finishing your garage floor is an easy, cost-effective way to add value and character to your home? At Concrete Coatings, we’re experts in residential floor coatings. We offer a variety of options, including flake floor coating, to create a space that is both personalized and durable. If you’re looking to upgrade your garage floor, take a look at how flake concrete garage coatings will make your garage look more contemporary while creating a space that is safer and easier to clean than a typical garage floor.
Benefits of Flake Flooring
Most people have heard about garage floor painting or epoxy floors. Flake flooring is similar but adds a bit more of a colorful or textured touch to a typical garage floor coating. The flakes in flake flooring are pieces of colored epoxy scattered over a tinted epoxy basecoat. We then cover the flakes with a polyaspartic layer to seal and protect the floor. Besides being cost-effective, flake flooring offers several other advantages.
They’re Durable and Long-Lasting
Resurfacing your garage with flake flooring is an excellent option because of its durability. The original intention for the epoxy used in flake flooring was to protect metal from corrosion, so it is the ideal material to keep your garage floors in great shape. Flake flooring protects your floor against spills from corrosive chemicals commonly found in garages, as well as staining and absorption of liquids. The non-porous surface stands up to Georgia humidity, keeping your garage floor mold-free. Flake flooring lasts for several years, helping keep repair costs down. The durable polyaspartic coating is also impact and scratch resistant, and doesn’t show tire marks.
Installing flake flooring in your garage improves safety in several ways. The textured surface provides slip resistance from spills and provides a level of heat restriction. Flake flooring is UV light resistant, so the color and pattern of your floor won’t fade or distort over time. Additionally, covering your concrete floor with flake floor coating eliminates concrete dust, helping keep your family from respiratory issues.
They’re Low Maintenance
Concrete garage floors are porous and tend to soak up gas, oil, and other chemical spills, leaving permanent stains. Flake flooring is non-porous and, when installed by the professionals at Concrete Coatings, requires very little upkeep. With just a mop and broom, you can keep your garage floor looking like new. Scratches or chips? Call us, and we’ll come out and patch the area, getting your floor back to perfect condition in no time.
If environmentally friendly materials top your list of essential aspects of your flooring, flake floors fit the bill. The materials used in flake flooring do not contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are gases emitted from certain types of products. Paint, gasoline, and adhesives all contain VOCs, and since you often store these in your garage, the last thing you need is flooring that adds to the problem. Flake flooring is resistant to moisture, non-toxic, and doesn’t require harsh chemicals to clean, making it an excellent choice for an eco-friendly flooring material.
They’re Aesthetically Pleasing
Just like interior paint is an easy and cost-efficient way to enhance the interior of your home, garage floor coating is an equally cost-effective way to improve the appearance of your garage. Flake flooring is a relatively inexpensive way to increase the value of your home by upgrading the look of a dull, stained garage floor into something more interesting and contemporary. At Concrete Coatings, we offer a wide range of colors and patterns to choose from so that you’re sure to find a style that matches your aesthetic.
