Fall is upon us already, which means winter isn’t far off. When it comes to concrete, winter and the cold temperatures and added moisture that come with it can spell doom for your concrete flooring, even in semi-protected areas such as your garage or patio.
Concrete problems are therefore more likely to occur in the colder months as fall turns into winter across the country and we here at Garage Force want you to protect your investment and save tons of money in the long run!
If you’ve recently installed concrete on your property, then you already know how expensive it is to purchase and lay concrete. For those of you who haven’t dealt with new concrete, trust us, you want to save the money it costs to replace damaged concrete. And the best way to do that is through a durable concrete coating. Garage Force offers several different concrete coating systems to best suit your space and needs and today we’ll take a closer look at why being proactive and protecting your concrete now is so important.
Temperature and Concrete Problems
While concrete seems tough and nearly indestructible, it’s actually far more susceptible to damage than you might realize. This is especially true when it comes to temperature fluctuations, freezing and thawing. Because concrete is a porous material, it can develop permeation issues. Freezing and thawing occur within the slab of concrete, damaging the very structures of it. Eventually, this leads to cracking, spalling and other complications, which compromise the concrete’s integrity and performance. At this point, you’ll have no choice but to replace it altogether.
Moisture and Concrete Problems
As the weather worsens, it comes with heavy snows that sit on the concrete or the moisture works its way into your garage simply through foot traffic or melting off your car. Unprotected concrete is highly susceptible to moisture damage because moisture resting on it and even in the air makes its way into the pores of the concrete. A migration of salt known as efflorescence develops, as a result, evaporating and crystallizing on the surface, which affects its durability.
Unrivaled Concrete Protector
The best and really only effective solution is to provide your concrete the protection it needs through a great concrete coating. Our revolutionary polyurea concrete coating is 20 times stronger than traditional epoxy, is UV resistant (so the colors don’t fade or yellow), completely seals out moisture and it extremely thermal resistant (so temperatures don’t affect its performance). Beyond that, our concrete coating cures quickly — leaving less time to form bubbles as it hardens. As the ultimate concrete protector, our coatings are resistant to chemicals, impact, abrasion and stains!
