Sealing Garage Floor – Type and Benefits

Sealing garage floor is one the effort that usually extend the age of garage floor. Most of favorite material as sealer is granite chip epoxy. Without the sealer, I believe the garage floor has less-protection. Some problems such as heavy vehicles’ tires and also foot traffic allow your garage becomes abused and unclean anymore obviously. That is why we need concrete floor such as granite. The durability of granite is not doubtful anymore. However, maintaining the concrete floor regularly will be better rather than uncover them without sealer. I have some types of garage floor sealers below. I hope you can get the points properly.

Types of Sealer garage floor

The first sealing garage floor type is called topical sealers. This sealer adds more layer on the concrete floor. Of course, these layers will protect the surface rather than uncovered floor. At the distance, this topical sealer offers light to moderate views of foot traffic on the surface. So, I recommend you to use this type of sealers in order to adhere to the texture.

Secondly, acrylic has cheaper prices rather the topical sealers. Why it is more less-expensive because this sealant is able to be pumped with sprayer or you can choose roller if you do not have it on your garage. Because of its cheaper prices, double coats or layers will bring more protection rather than only one. In addition, the installation is able to be done just for one day. The result of acrylic sealer on concrete granite is wet and glossy looks. However, you have to reinstall the sealer around eighteen or twenty four months of first installation. You can add UV protection too on this sealant for special feature.

The third type sealing garage floor is epoxy as I stated earlier on the first paragraph. The superiority of epoxy sealer is its durability which higher than topical. The weakness is only at the price because of the longevity which doubled than other types of sealer. The thickness of the epoxy is also thicker than topical and acrylic. Moreover, the application needs more time. I suggest you to install them with the one piece of sealer rather than in pieces.

In addition about the protection of acrylic, it is able to handle abrasion and large water resistance or other fluids such as oil or fuel. We know that we meet those fluids on our garage every day. So, I recommend you to use epoxy as the garage sealer.
