When it comes to home improvements, many people focus on the flashy elements, like renovating bathrooms and kitchens. However, few people realize the impact of a high-quality polyaspartic or polyurea coating on the garage floor in increasing property value.
In this post, the Area Home Services team will explain why it pays to consider polyaspartic or polyurea coatings for your garage as well.
Why Do Polyaspartic and Polyurea Coatings Improve Your Property Value?
Think about your typical garage floor. It usually consists of concrete, looks a little dingy, and bears oil marks here and there. No matter how careful you are, you cannot control when a car leaks oil or another chemical on concrete floors.
Hot tires may also leave prints on the surface, making it look even more dilapidated. If you work on projects in the garage, the propensity for damage increases every time you drop a hammer or move a box.
Polyaspartic and polyurea coatings protect the substrate from all these little spills and accidents by creating an impermeable barrier. This highlights the primary reason that polyaspartic and polyurea coatings improve your property value. However, you also need to consider several others..
You may opt for a clear polyaspartic or polyurea garage floor that allows the concrete to show through, or you may get creative. We can change up the look by adding:
- Texturizing agents
The nature of this material means we must hand-cast many elements. Therefore, you receive a custom finish that we cannot replicate exactly. How creative you wish to be is up to you.
You may decide on a lustrous metallic finish or a piece of art. Want something a little simpler? Ask us to recreate the look of high-end stone like onyx or marble.
We can turn your garage into your showroom in a cost-effective manner. Would you like to decorate it to look like a sleek granite floor or something a little more eccentric? Almost everything is possible, from solid hot pink to a pattern of red-hot flames..
Business owners often ask us to incorporate their brand logos or colors. Homeowners ask us to match their decor or work in their favorite colors
Adding a polyaspartic topcoat increases the strength of your floors four times over. Considering polyurea’s impressive resistance to scuffs and scratches, this provides an outstanding outcome. Not only is it difficult to scratch or chip your coating, but it won’t discolor.
In a commercial setting, you can likely enjoy a lifespan of at least five years. In a low-traffic environment, you can usually triple that figure..
However, remember this caveat: The longevity of the product relies on professional installation. The DIY kits you get at the hardware store will not last as long.
We add aggregates to improve the traction on the surface. Without this addition, the surface would be slick and dangerous if wet. However, the texture makes your polyaspartic or polyurea garage floor safe for everyone.
Easy To Clean and Maintain
Your new polyaspartic or polyurea garage floor requires little more than water and a mop to clean. Regularly sweeping the surface or dry mopping it gets rid of most debris. From there, water does the rest. In a small number of cases, you may need to use a soft brush or degreasing agent
Can Improve Lighting and Ambience
If your garage sits in a shaded spot, it may seem gloomy. The type of flooring you use can change that by brightening the area. Choosing a lighter and more reflective color on the floor makes it easier to reflect the ambient light, creating a brighter space. On the other hand, if the garage is a cavernous space or an odd shape, you can choose a coating with a darker tint. This can reduce the lighting, making the space feel cozier..
Polyaspartic and polyurea coatings have a non-porous nature that makes them easy to clean and maintain. Additionally, you can choose coatings with anti-microbial properties to kill germs that come in contact with the floor. This makes it an extremely hygienic option, especially in garages where oil spills and other messes can occur..
A concrete floor has no give and can be uncomfortable to stand on for long periods. Polyaspartic and polyurea coatings have some flexibility and feel slightly softer underfoot, making them a better option for those who use their garage as a workspace.
Can Handle High Pressure and Temperature Extremes
Polyaspartic and polyurea coatings can handle high pressure and temperature extremes. They are resistant to UV rays and don’t break down or crack under hot or cold temperatures, making them perfect for use in areas that experience extreme weather conditions.
Polyaspartic and polyurea coatings can be installed quickly. In most cases, a professional contractor can lay the floor in one day for the average-sized garage. After that, it becomes move-in ready within 24 hours. Considering that kitchen and bathroom renovations can take weeks, a quick garage upgrade offers a far simpler upgrade.
