Concrete coatings are definitely gaining some popularity these days as more homeowners and business owners learn about their benefits. Many people think that they are just for aesthetics, but concrete coatings do much more than that. Concrete coatings are the best way to revive your boring concrete floor and protect it from harm. When you have a concrete coating applied to your floor, you are adding a barrier to protect your floor from physical or chemical damage. Whether you have a concrete floor in your garage, basement, patio, or business, it is best to have it coated.
There are a few different options when it comes to concrete coatings. Polyurea/polyaspartic coatings and epoxy are the top two options in the coatings world. Polyurea/polyaspartic coatings are the favored option by many individuals as they are superior to epoxy in every day.

Bare concrete is very susceptible to damage and is very hard to clean. Concrete coatings are crucial if you want your concrete floor to look good for many years to come. Chemicals, oils and solvents will all stain or harm your concrete floor. Objects falling or being dropped are highly likely to scratch or chip concrete. Adding a protective layer of concrete coatings will protect your floor from stains and damage.
If you already have damage to your concrete floor, you will still want to invest in concrete coatings. Cracks and pits can be dangerous and cause people to trip and fall. Prior to applying the coatings, all the cracks and pits are filled to provide an even surface. While it is impossible to guarantee the cracks will not return, it is highly unlikely. Untreated damage will just continue to get worse so it is best to have it filled as soon as possible.
Concrete coatings not only protect your floor, but they provide an easy to clean surface as well. Bare concrete can harbor dirt and due to it being porous, it is extremely hard to clean. When coatings are applied, they seal the concrete and result in a smooth surface that is much easier to clean. Some coatings, like polyurea/polyaspartic coatings, have antibacterial and antimicrobial properties as well. This makes them even more appealing to business owners as they are easier for them to keep clean and maintain.
In the long run, investing in concrete coatings can be one of the best investments you can make. Applying concrete coatings will save you a lot of money and time. Having to have concrete replaced can be expensive, time consuming and messy. It is best to prevent un-repairable damage by having coatings installed so they can shield the concrete from damage and stains. Concrete coatings will also increase the value of your home, as well as enhance the curb appeal when installed outdoors.
