One surefire way make your garage a more welcoming environment is to upgrade the flooring you’ll step on every day.
Across North America, more and more homeowners are seeing the benefits of covering their existing concrete floor with a fresh surface that’s easy to clean, resistant to damage, and more pleasing to the eye.
For the most durable, comprehensive floor coverage available, many garage owners are choosing to have high-quality floor coatings applied.
If you’ve been researching floor coating solutions, you know it is possible to attempt this project yourself.
However, before you roll up your sleeves and prepare to tackle your garage floor upgrade yourself, here are four reasons you’re better off leaving the job to a seasoned professional.
1. Proper floor preparation is essential
A major reason floor coating projects fail is poor floor surface preparation. Garage Living’s trained pros prepare every floor they’re applying our Floortex™ floor coatings to with our industrial diamond grinding equipment and dustless self-contained vacuum system.
This removes the cracks, pits, and chips from your floor, which tend to remain when you try to DIY the project. Proper floor preparation also ensures the base coat, decorative flakes, and final top coat look great and last for many years.
2. Even floor coating application
A trained professional will ensure your garage floor coating is applied evenly, including the decorative chips that really make today’s coated garage floors stand out.
Your installer will also remove any excess chips before applying a seamless UV-stable top coat to give your floor that long-lasting, beautiful look that retains its color and shine.
3. Peace of mind
When it comes to garage flooring options, you get what you pay for. Inexpensive DIY floor coating kits that use epoxy coatings tend to spread unevenly and will chip and crack faster than a high-quality coating product.
Garage Living only uses ultra-durable Floortex™ polyaspartic floor coatings. They’re made from the highest-grade materials that are guaranteed not to flake, peel, or blister.
4. Getting a warranty you can count on
If your DIY floor project falters (which it often will), there’s little guarantee that you’ll be able to recoup your investment.
Hiring a professional removes the concern of operator error on your part because you’ll have a written warranty, ensuring quality work and quality products were used.
Enjoy the peace of mind knowing that your garage flooring project will be handled by an experienced, trusted professional. Transforming old, dull-looking garage floors into modern, stylish surfaces is one of Garage Living’s specialties.
