Snow, slush, and ice can take its toll on your garage floor during the winter months. These elements get tracked in every time you pull your vehicle into your garage. This can damage your floors, which can lead to expensive repairs. Floor coatings can help protect the concrete in your garage from winter weather and give your floor a longer lifespan. Here are some of the benefits you will notice after coating your garage floors.
With snow and ice comes salt, which can damage concrete flooring. Because of how porous concrete is, salt can seep into it quite easily. If it is not promptly removed, salt can cause cracks and other structural damage. It is time-consuming and exhausting trying to keep salt out of your garage but, if you use a coating, you will not have to worry about it. Your concrete floor will be free of weather-based damage if it has a hard, protective layer on top.
Once temperatures begin to rise, you will likely be left with a filthy garage floor. You have enough thing to wash in your house during spring cleaning, let your garage floor not be one of them. Dirt and grime that was tracked in during the winter can become stubborn to get out if you let it sit there over the winter. It could even stain your garage floor, ruining its aesthetics permanently. Dirt can be more than surface deep because concrete is so porous, making cleanup a time-consuming chore. Concrete floor coatings make cleanup much more manageable since all mess will sit on top of it and wipe off smoothly.
Water Damage Protection
You are more likely to bring water into your garage during the winter than any other time of year. It can drip from your vehicle’s tired and seep into your concrete floor. Once the temperature drops below 0’C, the water will freeze and expand, which can cause cracks and weaken the structure of your concrete. A garage floor coating can protect against water by acting as a water-resistant barrier on the surface.
