Thinking about doing a renovation on your residential garage floor? As with any other part of the home, one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to garages. Professional contractors mainly deal with four different options when it comes to garage floor coatings and renovations.
Stained and Sealed Floors
This option provides a very nice looking stained concrete look to your garage floor. Stained and sealed floors are considered very durable, but in some instances, they can be negatively affected by heavy use and high traffic in your garage. The typical price is $3.50 per square foot.
Decorative Chip Broadcast Floors
This type of flooring is a popular request here at Smith and Company painting. When installed correctly, decorative chip broadcast floors can offer a long-lasting decorative look that doesn’t reveal dings, scuffs, and scratches as easily as other options. The typical price is $4.50 per square foot.
Solid Colored Epoxy or Polyurethane Floors
This option is another popular demand for residential garage floors. This type of flooring is very durable but there have been comments that it tends to highlight scuffs and scratches more easily than other options. If you’re interested in the solid colored epoxy, request that a polyurethane top coat be applied to prevent staining from car tires. This flooring has a typical price of $4.50 per square foot.
Polished Concrete Floors
This is the premium choice out of all the options listed. If homeowners can maintain the polished concrete flooring, it will last and look great for years. A drawback is that if a spill was to happen on the concrete surface and leaves a stain, it can be quite difficult to remove. The typical price is $7.00 per square foot.
As mentioned earlier, one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to garage floors. Choosing one of the listed options all comes down to your personal preference.
