Concrete floors have become commonplace in basements and garages, providing a durable foundation that can withstand large amounts of weight and pressure. Over time, however, concrete is bound to show signs of wear and tear. Your garage floor might begin to reveal cracks that turn into larger fissures and holes. These scars aren’t just unpleasant to view, but they can lead to further damage as water, oil, and other debris find ways inside the concrete. Sealing a garage floor is an important step in protecting your floor and enhancing its beauty. Let’s dig deeper into the many reasons you should coat your concrete floor.

Easy Cleaning and Less Downtime

Coating your concrete floor is a protective measure. There are different types of sealing materials, but polyurea concrete floor coatings are the strongest and longest lasting. While Epoxy flooring only lasts about 3 years, polyurea floor coatings can last two decades if properly maintainted- and luckily these floor coatings are easy to maintain and keep clean with regular sweeping and washing. Because of the coatings' smooth surface, debris, moisture, and mildew aren't able to penetrate the flooring itself, adding years to their lifecycle.

By keeping moisture away, your floor will stay durable longer, meaning you won’t have to fill in as many cracks or replace the floor for quite some time.
