Seattle Flooring: How to Choose the Best Coatings

Why do concrete floors need coatings? Concrete floors can be dull, boring and ugly. Concrete is porous and thus retains dust. Concrete floors cannot also withstand the daily torture from heavy foot traffic, chemical attack, abrasions, impact and even thermal shock.

With those said, concrete floors need to be coated with a material that will give it protection, aesthetic value and such benefits such as chemical resistance, skid and impact resistance. Coatings make the concrete floor easy to maintain, too.

Coatings that directly bond with concrete floor surface and provide long-lasting protection, as well as aesthetic appeal, are the most ideal. Concrete floors also need to be coated with a material that will make it resistant to chemicals, impact, abrasion, and dust. More importantly, the coatings need to be easy to maintain.

To be able to make the ideal floor coating choice, the concrete surface needs to be evaluated in terms of the following:

  • Is the concrete surface clean? The surface should not contain any foreign objects as they will interfere with the coating material adhering to the concrete surface.
  • Does the concrete surface have any spalls or cracks? Is it uneven? All these need to be repaired prior to the installation of the coating so it will perfectly adhere to the concrete surface.
  • What kind of protection do you want the coating to provide the concrete surface?
  • What level of maintenance are you willing to provide the coated concrete surface?

Epoxy floor coating is fast increasing in popularity as the ideal coating for concrete floors. Here are the reasons why: 

  1. Epoxy is a mixture of equal parts of resins and hardeners which perfectly bond well with a well-prepared concrete surface. Foreign objects, spalls, cracks as well as an uneven surface can be easily dealt with by the epoxy installer.
  2. Epoxy floors are resistant to chemicals, impact, abrasion and even thermal shock.
  3. Epoxy floors are easy to maintain as all they need is just an occasional mopping. Spills on the floor can be easily wiped off by a damp cloth.
  4. Epoxy floors are easy to install. After mixing and the resin and hardener, the coating is directly applied to the concrete surface. There is no need to wait for the 1st layer to dry up before applying the second layer.
  5. Epoxy floors are aesthetically appealing as they come with a high gloss finish.
  6. Epoxy floors are versatile as they are available in various colors, designs, and texture.
  7. Epoxy floors are easy on the pocket.

Yes, Deluxe Concrete can transform any concrete floor into a polished concrete floor. Call for a free estimate and we will show you how.

Polished concrete can be installed in concrete floors with these few requirements:

A new concrete floor should have been cured for at least 28 days prior to the installation of polished concrete. If polished concrete is to be applied along with the concrete floor, the floor needs to be as smooth as possible so the polishing process can be minimized.

The concrete floor needs to be properly prepared. Dust, dirt, existing coatings and adhesives, oil and grease needs to be removed prior to the application of polished concrete.

There are certain concrete floor conditions that are not suitable for polished concrete installation (porous floors, floors with holes and cracks). Your Deluxe Concrete installer will discuss with you the process that needs to be done so the concrete floor is properly prepared.

In instances when your concrete floor surface needs to be solidified and densified prior to polished concrete application Deluxe Concrete will work on the surface accordingly.

There is no concrete floor that cannot be installed with polished concrete. Deluxe Concrete installers are highly skilled and trained to handle any concrete floor condition to ensure a successful polished concrete installation. Call us today for a free estimate. We gladly be of service.

The cost of polished concrete depends on these factors:

  • The area of the space polished concrete is going to be installed.
  • The number of grinding levels required to achieve a smooth surface.
  • The application of additional decorative effects such as scoring, staining and more.
  • The extent of preparation of the concrete floor prior to installation of polished concrete.

The initial cost of polished can be higher than some flooring systems. However if you look log-term you will realized that it is a lot cheaper in the long term.
