Concrete floors may seem like one of the most permanent surfaces – and they can be for awhile. However, even concrete floors aren’t immune to cracks, stains and pits caused by settling of your foundation over time, water table issues and many other factors. Fortunately, there is a way to preserve and elongate the lifespan of your concrete floors: repair them and finish with a self leveling sealer. No decorative concrete floor installation is complete without the repair of the cracked surface, and the application of a sealer.
Here’s a list of common questions about concrete sealers that address why this final layer of protection is so important compiled from our team of epoxy floor installers in New Jersey.
- What is the best sealer for concrete floors? The most common and efficient concrete sealers are epoxy, polyurea and polyaspartic coatings. Also known as film-forming sealers (those that form a protective film on the concrete surface), these are the type most often used for interior decorative concrete work.
- Which concrete sealers will protect my floor from scuffs? Polyurea or epoxy will provide the best scuff and stain protection. They will also be easier to maintain, especially in a space with a lot of foot traffic.
- Are concrete sealer fumes toxic? Before hiring a contractor to seal your concrete floor, it’s important to ask about the toxicity of products used and their process for maintaining a healthy work environment. At Diamond Garage Solutions (DGS), standard operating procedures include the following: low or no VOC compounds, utilization of high airflow HEPA filtered vacuums and proper disposal of leftover chemical compounds, to name a few.

- How long will my concrete sealer last on my floor? In short, the lifespan of the concrete sealer depends largely on how well the floor is maintained and what conditions the floor is normally exposed to. It’s also important to note that epoxy floor coatings deliver the best performance that lasts for years to come. And when you choose to work with professionals, like DGS your epoxy floor comes with a life of structure warranty!
