Garage FlooR Paint
Why You SHould avoid It
Garage floor paint is a quick and easy way to add additional protection to your concrete surfaces. Garage floor paint helps to protect your garage floors from damages and stains through a durable, high gloss finish.
This quick method of applying a floor coating is easy to clean and cheaper than other alternatives, though it doesn’t hold up as well or last as long as professional floor coatings.
Garage floor paints resist scuffing, fading, and blistering, while also having low odors, if you opt for the polycuramine option. They come in a wide range of colors, so you have many options for how you want your garage floor to look.
Concrete paints and epoxy based paints improve the look of your floors through covering up any hairline cracks, while also protecting it from any future staining.
Salt and magnesium chloride can eat through garage floor paints quickly, though, and they won’t adhere well if you have any oil stains, moisture problems, or grease. If your garage floor isn’t a smooth surface, this also complicates the application process and the longevity of the product.
If your floor has cracks that aren’t little hairline cracks, you’ll want to cut and fill them in, so that your paint looks better. Before painting your garage floors, you must ensure that they are clean and smooth. Should you decide to go this route, you can expect to reapply the paint every few years, as garage floor paint is not a long lasting solution and will start to peel and crack over time.
