If you’re a homeowner looking to put in a relatively easy and affordable upgrade with a big impact, look no further than the humble garage floor. Garages can take some serious wear and tear, especially during a cold, wet Rhode Island winter. Read on for more information on why you should consider painting your garage floor, plus tips on how to make it happen!
One of the major reasons to paint a garage floor is that it’s an investment that will keep your garage much cleaner. A rough, unfinished garage floor can easily attract loose dust, dirt, plus oil and grease stains from your vehicles. In addition, a concrete floor will slowly start to erode over time, sending additional dust particles throughout your garage. Having a smooth, painted finish will seal off your floor from collecting dirt, which will make for a more comfortable space and will prevent your family from tracking garage gunk into your home.
Brighten and Lighten
Choosing to paint your garage floor in a lighter color or decorative chip blend can make your garage appear a bit brighter. It’s an easy way to make a dark, dingy space appear better almost instantly. A light paint color will reflect light much better than a typical concrete floor, giving your garage a little boost and adding to the “curb appeal” of your home.
Be Sure to Prep!
One of the most common mistakes for home owners looking to paint a garage floor is insufficient prep. While painting a garage floor is relatively easy and inexpensive, it’s also not a job that should be rushed. A proper paint job will first include a deep cleaning. Be sure to use stiff brushes and adequate degreasing solvents on tough oil stains before you start to paint. Hiring a local, Rhode Island painting contractor to paint your garage can help ensure that this step is done right the first time, which can save you money down the road!
