Hot Trends for Garage Floors

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Your business’ garage floor is constantly exposed to the elements. Customers might not think highly of dull gray, grease-stained concrete flooring. For a low-maintenance yet clean and bold appearance, consider the current popular trends in garage floor coatings. Floors have come a long way both in practicality and beauty. It’s important to note that adequate surface preparation is essential before embarking on any of these flooring projects because it ensures long-lasting appeal. All of these options are available in an array of colors and patterns for total optimization:


  • Stained Concrete: This form is a chemical reaction using acid. It creates an original high-end look with great color penetration.
  • Dyed Concrete:  This process uses ink to dye the floors. Exposure to lots of sunlight may fade floors quickly, although new developments constantly arise that reduce fading. The dyes penetrate the surface for a splash of vibrant color.
  • Concrete Overlays: Overlays consist of cement, aggregates and resins. They are quite versatile and hide imperfections very well.
  • Epoxy Coatings: Epoxy is one of the most common forms of floor coatings. It is inexpensive, durable as well as stain and chemical resistant. Also, it offers a non skid application for reducing slips and falls. For a textured look, try color flaking.
  • Stamped Concrete: This trend adds texture and color to concrete while allowing it to resemble stone, brick, wood and other natural materials.

With these concrete flooring breakthroughs, your floors will finally look fashionable and polished while boosting morale and impressing customers.
