Home renovations rarely come cheap, and they tend to take some time to plan and complete. For these reasons, many homeowners put off various improvement projects until they’re absolutely necessary. However, many projects have the potential to yield long-term benefits, both in terms of safety and monetary value. The application of concrete floor coatings in certain areas of your home, for instance, can provide a solid return on investment when properly installed and maintained, outweighing the short-term costs. Let’s explore the ways in which concrete floor coatings can increase your home’s safety and value.

The Safety and Value Benefits of Commercial Floor Coatings

How Concrete Floor Coatings Make Your Home Safer

If you’re looking for ways to make your home safer, your floors are a great place to start. After all, a large percentage of injuries involve slips, trips, and falls. Barren, dirty, deteriorated floors can pose multiple tripping hazards. Dust and dirt caked on the surface can make a floor slippery, cracks, holes, and divots can cause one to trip, and liquid spills are naturally slick. By thoroughly cleaning your floor and sealing it with a polyurea concrete coating or similar material, you mitigate all of these issues and more. These coatings can be mixed with non-slip additives to increase traction, reducing the risk of slips, trips, and falls. Additionally, polyurea floor coatings create a smooth, even surface, free from cracks and pits and are designed to protect the underlying floor from moisture, thermal shock, chemical spills, and more -- as a result, your floors will remain durable, stable, and safe for much longer.

Boosting Your Home’s Value with Concrete Floor Coatings

Safety should be your top priority, but your renovations should also increase your home’s market value and make it more attractive to future buyers, even if you’re not currently in the mood to sell. Fortunately, quality floor coatings accomplish these goals. Indeed, a garage floor sealing project can yield an ROI (return on investment) of up to 65% at resale and greatly increase one’s odds of closing a sale. The addition of basement floor paint or polyurea flooring may grant you a 70% ROI in some cases. Regardless, coating your floors goes a long way toward enhancing their appearance, making your property more desirable across the board. Not only that -- properly coated floors are much easier to clean and maintain than unsealed floors. As a result, you’ll save yourself loads of time and money on upkeep. So, even if the initial cost of your floor coating project is higher than you’d like, it can really pay off in the end.
