3 Considerations When Choosing Your Floor Sealer

Are you renovating your garage and considering adding some protection to the floors? Here are three things to consider when choosing a floor sealer for your garage floor resurfacing project:

1: Do you park your car in the garage?

The weight of your vehicle and the heat and traction from its tires will cause repeated wear on the surface below it over time. Make sure the floor sealer you have chosen is one that can withstand repeated heavy use in the same spots, as well as resist heat and scuffs from the tires.

2. What is your climate like?

The climate that you live in won’t just determine the best type of floor sealer for your garage, but the best time of year in which you should have it installed. Humid conditions can prevent the sealer from curing quickly, delaying project times. You may also want to consider testing for humidity and acidity to ensure that the correct pH balance is utilized in the sealer, otherwise, the floor quality could degrade quickly.

3. How much maintenance are you willing to perform?

The amount of time you are willing to spend maintaining and cleaning your garage floors is also a factor in which sealer is best for your property. While acrylic may be the cheapest and easiest to apply, epoxy requires less maintenance and is more repellant to spills and damage.

From epoxy floor coating to acrylic or polyurethane, there are several options for floor sealants. When you are planning your garage floor resurfacing project, and you should base your choice on the specific needs that you have for your garage space.
