In one of our previous videos, we discussed that there are multiple options for coating to use on residential garage floors. Each of these options presented their own pros and cons. In addition, living in the Willamette Valley, we face the dilemma of rain and ground water which results in too much moisture vapor transmission into the slabs of garage floors. Here at Smith and Company, we regularly use the decorative chip broadcast system.
Why the decorative chip broadcast system? Well, first off it looks amazing. In addition, it doesn’t display the scuffs and scratches nearly as easily as the other types of treatments. It is the most scuff, scratch, and stain resistant option and that is why it is our first choice.
When choosing a flooring, it is important to use the highest quality materials since some chip broadcast floors aren’t as durable. If there is moisture on your floor or your house is in an area that is susceptible to high ground water, our team can conduct a calcium chloride test. This checks the moisture vapor transmission rate. If it produces a high moisture content, our team would apply a moisture mitigating primer that will help stop the vapor transmission.
Still not sure what type of flooring would be best for your garage floor? Let us know! We’d love to help you find the best solution because your complete satisfaction is our number one priority!
