If your basement or garage flooring is an eyesore and not a selling point, you may want to consider giving it an upgrade before putting your house on the market. The condition of your house’s concrete can be a feature or a liability depending on the way it looks. Here are a few pointers for updating your basement or garage flooring for resale.
Signs Your Basement or Garage Flooring Needs an Update
Concrete floors are hard-wearing and put up with a lot of abuse. When it’s time to decide whether or not to update your concrete basement or garage floor for resale, look out for a few of these warning signs.
Cracks are the most obvious signs that your concrete floor needs protection. Daily wear and tear, house settling, moisture, and the freeze/thaw cycle can cause your concrete basement or garage floor to crack. When left unaddressed, cracks can grow and cause structural damage. Large cracks in concrete floors are usually a big red flag for potential buyers.
Other signs that your concrete flooring needs an update include damage abrasions, dents, and pockmarks. These are signs that your floor has taken damage from scrapes, dropped objects, or the freeze/thaw cycle. Pitting or spalling of your concrete floor may indicate improperly installed concrete.
If your basement or garage floors have cracks or other signs of damage, it’s time to consider protecting your concrete flooring with a polyaspartic floor coating. Not only will a polyaspartic coating protect your floor, it will transform it into a beautiful, durable surface that will wow potential buyers.
Polyaspartic Floor Coating Basics
Polyaspartic floor coating is a popular option for protecting basement and garage concrete floors. Professionally installed in just a day, polyaspartic floor coating cures in as little as five minutes and can be driven on in just 24 hours. It penetrates the concrete to create an impermeable bond. This creates a stain-resistant, fade-resistant, abrasion-resistant, and bubble-free surface you can enjoy for years. Plus, it contains low/no harmful VOCs, so it won’t stink up your house during installation.
