Concrete is nothing if not sturdy. But concrete floor coatings are key to preserving the integrity, appearance, and structural soundness of your flooring.

Since concrete flooring is an investment in your home or business, it’s good to ask questions before committing to a concrete flooring installation.

When we talk to customers before starting a project, they want to know: how long do new concrete floor coatings last? The answer depends on a few important factors.

Does Your Concrete Floor Need New Coating?

Where Is Your Concrete Flooring?

The location of your concrete flooring can impact how long a coating will last.

Basement flooring: This flooring is indoors, and that’s likely to work in your favor. Limited exposure to the elements means that concrete floor coatings here can last a long time.

But depending on the ground it’s built on, how well it’s sealed, and how well temperature and moisture is controlled in your basement throughout the year, it could still be susceptible to damage. Be sure you’ve chosen a coating that can stand the test of time.

Garage flooring Even if you’re barely in your garage, or don’t keep cars and other heavy equipment stored there, the flooring can still crack and deteriorate. Chemical-resistant coatings work great for garage floors and play a role in improving their longevity.

Outdoor concrete flooring: If your concrete is outdoors on a porch, patio, sidewalk, or pool deck, it is most vulnerable to the elements. You’ll want to be sure you choose the most durable and moisture-resistant options to minimize concrete flooring repair and resurfacing needs over time.

Which Coating Do You Have?

Choosing the right coating is critical. You want to know you’re working with the best in the business. As flooring professionals, our team at Anderson Painting only trusts PennTek coatings for concrete flooring.

PennTek offers an array of home and commercial flooring coating options that have been known to last up to 20 years with proper installation, cleaning, and maintenance. Whatever your flooring needs, working with a PennTek flooring contractor offers great return on investment over the life of your home or business.

How Was Your Coating Applied?

Improper installation can lead to damaged flooring, and the process of resurfacing, repairing, and replacing concrete floor coatings can be difficult. Because of this, we don’t recommend leaving anything up to chance by taking a do-it-yourself approach.

Working with professional flooring installers means you can get the job done in as little as a day, with your floor ready to use, without worrying if it will fail in a few years.

When hiring a concrete floor coating company, don’t be afraid to ask questions about how long coatings will last, what the best coating options are for your field or industry, and what sets their team apart when it comes to installation processes and materials.
