While most people think of vacations, beaches and barbecues during the summer, we think of garage floor sealing. Summer is the perfect time to clear out your garage and seal your garage floor for good with a professional epoxy coating. Not to mention, if you’re thinking of selling in the fall, sealing your garage floor can be a great way to increase your home value. When consulting a professional contractor about this new project, it’s important to ask the right questions. In this blog, we’ll go over what questions to ask and why sealing your garage floor is a great investment in your home.
Questions to Ask Your Epoxy Floor Installer
- Does the garage need to be cleaned and cleared before you show up for the job? This is a crucial question to ask because some contractors do not offer assistance with clearing the space. On the other hand, Diamond Garage Solutions (DGS) can help you clear the space, arrange for temporary storage, and put your items back when we’re done sealing your garage floor.
- There’s a crack in my garage floor. Do I have to seal it before you install the epoxy floor? Cracks and other imperfections most definitely have to be taken care of before applying the epoxy coating. The key to a long-lasting epoxy floor solution is ensuring the concrete garage floor is as smooth as possible before installation. Luckily, if you’re unsure how to fill in the cracks, most epoxy floor contractors offer concrete repair services as well.
- What type of finish should I use on my garage floor? The most common sealer for garage floors is epoxy. However, there are other viable options available such as polyurea and polyaspartic coatings. Each type of sealer results in a different finish. If you want your garage to have a “showroom” type of feel, polyurea provides a more glossy finish with a textured appeal. But that’s not to say, this can’t be achieved with epoxy coatings as well. If you’d like to add more texture and style to your garage floor, ask your contractor if they offer decorative floor flakes. Most contractors should have a wide variety of colors to choose from.
- How long will my finish last? The durability of your properly installed epoxy floor should really last a lifetime under normal use, including cars riding over it. If you take a hammer to your floor, you can certainly crack it, but otherwise the floor is incredibly resilient, beautiful, and easy to clean! The key is proper preparation of the surface, and the quality of materials used. All Garage epoxy seal products are not created equal! With our company, you get only commercial grade epoxy products not available to the general public, and applied by people who really know what they’re doing. That’s why we’re able to offer a lifetime warranty on our installation.
