Discover the different choices you have for redoing your garage floor with concrete coatings.
Making your garage an extension of your living space!
In a time not too long ago, garages were all the same: outbuildings that were storage areas for parked automobiles, with uninteresting gray concrete and even dirt floors. Today garages have taken a more popular location in the design of homes, often developed to house 3 vehicles, and usually connected to the home. Garages have graduated from simple storage areas, becoming organized shops or showrooms. Today every bit of attention that a homeowner pays to the decorating of the house is paid to the garage also, right to exactly what goes on the concrete floors.
The growing trend to personalize residential garages appears to have created in the Southwest, where moderate weather condition motivated people to hang around in their garages. With the addition of evaporative coolers and unique heating unit, garages became useable in all corners of the U.S. & Canada, in all sorts of weather. As garages became extensions of living areas, the organizational requirements for the garages developed too. Among the primary steps in customizing garages, the addition of custom cabinets, may have resulted in the popularity of garage floor finishes. “A not likely close friend to the garage floor is custom garage cabinets,” says Jose Celedon owner of Beyond Basics Concrete. “With people getting more organizes and desiring cleaner and better looking garages, it’s just natural that they would want to update the look of the floor as well.”.
Now homeowners not need to go for boring, gray concrete flooring. Their garage floors can be as visually kindlying as the rest of their house. See these Key Resin garage floor systems.
The adaptability of garage floor layers.
Garage floor coverings have the versatility to choose any style of design. Looks can range from basic gray concrete with a sealant to a more intricate colored base with multicolor flecks in it, offering a design similar to granite or terrazzo.
Color flakes can be found in a wide range of colors and are made from acrylic paint chips. This system supplies an outstanding wear surface area that can stand up under walking and driving on, however if impact resistance is what you’re trying to find, decorative quartz is the method to go. Quartz floors are multicolored aggregates tossed to rejection into 100 % solids epoxy and have the effect resistance not normally discovered with the acrylic paint chips.
Selecting the design for your garage floor covering can be as easy as matching the color of your residence or as involved as concealing any flaws or flaws in the existing floor. Covering the existing concrete with only a sealer, any flaws will show through. A colored base with the paint chips or quartz aggregate thrown down to rejection would cover any imperfections that could exist. If the floor has no visual needs to pick complete protection, a medium or light repaint chip coverage might be chosen for extra design variations.
