Need for a Perfect Solution
Primarily, you will agree that the garage should endure the heavy weight of the vehicles besides the footfalls. Even though the slackness is at a minimum, the abuse of dirt, motor oil, gasoline, and other contaminants besides the ice or salt water cannot be avoided. The garage flooring needs to withstand the heat generated by the vehicle tires too.
One of the best options is the garage concrete flooring which can meet any eventuality you envisage. If you are looking at a budget-friendly but at the same time impressive ambiance, proper sealing methods could assure you the protection to the dull and gray concrete surface.
The perfect adhesiveness of the topical sealer is also referred to as floor coatings. With the combination of appropriate colors, you can enhance the ambiance of the concrete flooring.
The multiple coats of resin mixture applied to the concrete flooring will be very durable if you ensure that the sealer-flooring is cured properly. However, the extent of its resistance to the abrasiveness and to chemicals depends upon other factors like the type of product and thickness of the coating etc.
If you are looking for chloride-resistant sealer, two coats of thin acrylic sealer is a better option. Though the sealing needs a repetition in about two years of time, this sealer is the best protection for the concrete surface from the permeability of chloride or normal water. The translucent coating also resists, in a limited way, the motor oil, grit and other residual dust collected by the vehicle tires. It also helps in sealing the acid-based stains off the concrete floors. Another advantage of the acrylic sealing is in preventing the surface from becoming yellowish in color and also is of low odor.
If an easy application and the pocket-friendly alternative is your objective, perhaps you can try the acrylic concrete sealer option. Though you can use the area after a few hours depending on the weather conditions, the topical sealer cannot withstand the heavy traffic movement nor is very long durable.
Epoxy Concrete Sealer
Florida Epoxy Pros is of the firm opinion that epoxy concrete sealer is the most recommended option for its durability. In case the garage space is prone to abrasion or heavy wear and tear, the high build epoxy protective coating is ideally recommended. The slightly thicker than the acrylic sealing, the chemical bond of the surface enhances the durability. The water-resistant epoxy solutions come with clear or pigmented as per your choice.
You can take an advantage of the epoxy concrete sealing in preventing the intrusion of vehicle fluid, oil and other dirt, grit collection by the vehicle tires besides the tire heat.
