When it comes to coloring and sealing floors, in most cases it's best left up to the pros. But if you've got the time and patience, you can have your concrete floors looking like new in no time.
Epoxy coatings are basically liquid polymers that convert to solid through a chemical reaction, during which time they are also highly adhesive. Resin and a hardening agent react when mixed together and link irreversibly, making a rigid, plastic-like material that coats the flooring material it's applied to, whether it be steel, concrete or wood.
Concrete floors are often coated with epoxy, to make them almost indestructibly strong, resistant to chemicals and dust and slip-free. Epoxy comes in clear or colored batches, some that may be patterned.
If you have worn or chipped concrete floors inside or outside of your home or garage you may want to spruce them up by painting them. All you have to do is find an attractive and durable concrete floor paint.
Concrete floor paint is made to protect and decorate masonry floors in residences and industrial environments. A good concrete floor paint will withstand heavy traffic, repeat washings, harsh weather, acids, chemicals, oil and alkalis, and should be non-flammable. Concrete floor paint is ideal on basement and garage floors, patios and stairs.
