Is your garage floor grimy and stained? Upgrading the coating can help you transform the space completely. It will go from drab and dingy to tidy, simple to clean, and more pleasant to spend time in. You can even use it as an office or exercise room. When it comes to actually installing a new garage floor coating, though, should you tackle it on your own, or bring in an expert in the Lincoln, NE area? The decision is yours to make, but here's what to consider first.
What Goes into Garage Floor Coating
Before you can apply a new coating to your garage floor, you have to prep the space. This means cleaning it out completely and removing all the boxes, bikes, cars, and other items stored inside. Next, you'll need to sweep it, hose it down, and scrub areas where there are stains, like paint and oil. Once that's done, you'll have to borrow or rent a power wash to completely clean the floor and remove ground-in dirt, wax, and other contaminants.
It's a lot of work and the prep portion isn't even over yet. You then need to grind the floor mechanically since a new epoxy coating won't stick to a smooth surface. This is a critical step in the process if you want the best results. If you don't have the right tools or technical expertise to handle this part of the prep work or other steps, call in a garage floor coating professional in the Lincoln area.
Another reason to bring in an expert? They will use superior, industrial-grade products. Many times, on store shelves, all you'll find are garage floor coating kits. These sound great in theory, but deliver a much thinner, less durable coating, meaning it won't last. When you choose a professional, you might spend more upfront, but you can rest assured you'll get a far more durable coating that will last longer and look better.
