Three Reasons To Apply A Concrete Coat To Your New Garage


When a person first moves into their new home, they often have a long to-do list of upgrades and other projects they want to complete. If you have compiled this sort of list for your home, make sure you include concrete coating for the garage. Concrete coating a newly installed garage surface can provide you with several long-lasting benefits; learn about some of them. 

Blocking Barrier

If you are someone who enjoys working in the garage, you cannot underestimate the benefit that a concrete coating application can provide. Whether it is fluid from a vehicle or pieces of flying wood debris from your worktable, over time, these items can cause discoloration and other damage to the floor. The concrete coating serves as a damage-blocking barrier over the floor. 

For example, if you were to spill motor oil on the floor, the coating would prevent the liquid from penetrating the concrete and causing a stain. Instead, the oil would remain on the surface of the floor, which would allow you to quickly wipe it up. As a result, your garage floor will look just as good, years down the line, as it did on the day you moved in. 

Resale Value

Today, moving out of your new home and into another house might be the last thing on your mind. However, moving is a common thing. In the event your current home no longer meets your need and you decide to move, applying a concrete coating to the garage while new can help you maintain some of your home's resale value.

With the average buyer, every imperfection equates to a drop in their offering price. However, since the coating application keeps the surface looking good, you do not have to worry about a banged-up and worn garage affecting the resale value of your home.


These days, garages are much more than a place to store a vehicle. Garages are man caves, a space for family gatherings, and so much more. However, this applies only when the garage is in good condition. If you want to use your garage for more than car storage, a concrete coating application can offer you more versatility. 

Unprotected concrete is prone to pitting and other surface damage that can make it hazardous to walk on. Unprotected concrete also looks bad as it ages. With an application, you get the versatility of a smoother floor surface and a better appearance.
