A concrete coating can give your worn-out, aging surfaces the lift they need to look beautiful this spring. Although it’s an instant curb-appeal boost, a concrete coating is beneficial for both the inside and the outside of your home.
As the snow melts and the temperatures turn warmer, your thoughts turn to how you can improve your home. How can you plan on making a new concrete coating a key part of those plans?
Select the Finish Carefully
First, identify the surface you want to coat. Is it your garage floor that needs a face-lift, or is it your patio or pool deck? Depending on the conditions of the environment, we recommend certain finishes over others.
For example, in the case of a pool deck, it’s best to apply a slip-resistant coating that provides extra safety. For a garage, it might be more important to apply a stain-resistant coating so that oil spills don’t soak into the surface.
Check for Proper Water Drainage
Before a concrete coating is applied, it’s important to check for adequate water drainage in the area. Standing water and constant moisture will not allow the materials to properly bond with the concrete. If this is a problem, it’s important to find a solution before the coating process takes place.
Honestly Assess the Concrete’s Condition
Is your concrete in bad shape? Be honest about the state of your slab. If it needs some serious leveling or crack repair, this should take place prior to the coating process. At Packman’s Coatings, we are dedicated to making sure you get the most for your money, so we will advise on the best way to initiate concrete repairs before we install the coating.
Choose Your Color
Finally, one of the most exciting steps in the preparation process is choosing color. Depending on the finish you decide on, you’ll have an array of shades and textures to choose from. From color flakes to metallic finishes to customized designs, our wide selection helps you unleash creativity.
