Many of us have had the experience when entering a house and could not help but notice how beautiful the floor is laid. Through looks, a floor can make or destroy your office or house. A sophisticated floor can help build a positive image of your house/office while a floor boring in appearance can keep away people.
This impression concept applies to all parts of the building or the house, including the garage. Let’s take on the garage. Some people are particular about certain aspects of their garage. Others like hanging out with friends in the garage, having a variety of activities or even having a working space in there. So, you can never ignore the garage, the garage floor coating can add to the warmth and homeliness making it more pleasing to stay in.
If you are the type of person who likes working in the garage, then having your floor coated can be an excellent move. It will not only beautify the floor but also help protect it; it will put in place a protective layer that makes the floor durable.
The floor coating will cover the wear and tear on the garage floor that is as a result of the constant pressure from heavy objects or car tires. The coatings must be layered to attain maximum protection of the area covered. Use coatings that are environmentally friendly to protect your health and the environment.
Epoxy flooring is the hardest and most durable floor paint. This type of coating is ideal for industrial or commercial concrete or wood floors, garage floors, decks and basement floors. The epoxy consists of two components: the resin and the hardener. These components are separated and mixed only a few minutes before the curing process.
Polyurethane is another coating, Polyurethane floor coating is very tough and is more elastic than epoxy. The downside with this type of coating is in the application because it consists of two application processes: That is the application of a primer and the application of polyurethane.
The steps to apply any coating are very easy to follow. The first thing to do is clean the floor with a good detergent and a high-quality degreaser to make sure all oil spots are removed. Apply the mixture and wait a few minutes to allow the degreaser to work, then rinse well. Check the water pearls all around the area. If you happen to find any pearls, it means that oil remains on the surface and you must apply the mixture again area and rub harder. If the beads are no longer present, the next step is to etch the soil with a poor solution of hydrochloric acid and water.
Next, mix the resin and hardener and roll the mixture with a nap roller. The layer is applied as you do with painting. For best coating results, apply the layer to a 6-foot square. After you have finished spread the anti-slip add-on, you can also apply colour dots to give your floor sense life and dynamics.
