Finishing your basement truly completes your home. No longer merely a place to store various items, your finished basement might serve as a guest room, “man cave,” gaming area, entertainment space, personal office – the list goes on. No matter how you choose to configure your basement, however, there’s always room for improvement. The right flooring solutions can help you take your finished basement to the next level. In particular, polyurea floor coatings can deliver the finishing touch your basement truly needs.

Here are four ways polyurea coatings stand to improve your finished basement.

Four Ways Polyurea Coatings Can Improve Your Finished Basement

1. Transform Your Basement’s Atmosphere

A room’s overall look and feel are determined by several factors, including its furnishings, interior paint colors, and layout. But none of these elements have as large an impact on your basement’s atmosphere as its flooring. After all, a floor spans the entire room – even if your eyes aren’t glued to the basement floor, its color, texture, and finish are always in your peripheral vision. If your basement floor is dull, worn down, or otherwise lacking in appeal, the rest of your room’s aesthetic will suffer. Installing polyurea floor coatings is a surefire way to boost your basement’s appearance – Penntek polyurea flooring, for instance, comes in a variety of custom colors and textures. These floors also deliver a beautiful, glossy finish to brighten up any interior. Whether your finished basement is used for recreational, professional, or other purposes, these beautiful, customizable coatings will complete the look you’re going for.

2. Minimize Maintenance

With so many other areas of your home to care for, your basement might get left on the backburner. Of course, most homeowners are more inclined to keep up with basement maintenance if their basement is finished. Still, the less time and energy you have to spend on this maintenance, the better. Polyurea basement coatings reduce the frequency of necessary maintenance in a number of ways. For starters, these floor coatings naturally resist dust and repel liquids. Polyurea floor coatings are also highly durable, withstanding impact, pressure, thermal shock, and other threats. And the smooth, glossy finish provided by these coatings makes sweeping and mopping a breeze. Simply put, it’s easy to take care of polyurea-coated basement flooring.

3. Increase Safety Downstairs

Things can get rough down in the cellar, especially if your finished basement is designed for recreation (and you have children in the house). If your floors are filthy, worn down, or otherwise slick, it’s only a matter of time before someone gets hurt due to a slip, trip, or fall. One way to make your finished basement safer is to hire floor installers to seal your concrete flooring with polyurea coatings. These coatings might look slick due to their smooth, glossy finish, but they actually offer a fair deal of friction, especially with the addition of non-slip texturing during installation. Moreover, these bright floors improve visibility, making it easier to see obstacles, damages, and other hazards.

4. Keep Your Basement Floor Around Longer

Finishing a basement is a significant investment. When all is said and done, you want to make sure that this space stands the test of time – this will maximize your return on investment (ROI). Installing a polyurea basement floor coating will help you keep your finished basement in great shape for many years to come. Most standard concrete floor coatings only last 2-3 years before requiring resurfacing or repair – Penntek polyurea coatings can endure for two decades or more, protecting your basement floors from moisture intrusion, debris, abrasion, thermal shock, and more.

Is Your Basement Really Finished?
