Cracks in Concrete Garage Floor: How To Prevent

Have you noticed unsightly cracks in your concrete garage floor? Cracks in your garage’s concrete can affect the floor’s structural integrity. Cracks in the concrete may also indicate problems with the foundation; however, it can be challenging to determine how bad the issue is. 

Concrete coating can restore any imperfections and prevent cracked floors. Regular maintenance to your garage floors can protect against natural flaws that occur over time. If you’re looking for quality, affordable concrete coating experts in Low Country, SC, look no further!

What Are Control Joints?

If you don’t know much about your garage’s structural foundation, it’s easy to mistake control joints for cracks in the concrete. Control joints look similar to cracks but are put in place by contractors when pouring the concrete. 

Control joints are strategically placed throughout the concrete. They’re meant to weaken the concrete in specific areas to control where the concrete cracks. When the concrete eventually cracks, control joints ensure that they do so in a controlled straight line.

When you purchase a property, you can expect cracks in your concrete garage floor over time. Cracking is caused by several factors like expansive soils, poor drainage, and other common surface issues. When a garage surface is first constructed, shrinkage cracks can appear right after the concrete is poured — this can make your concrete vulnerable to expansive soils at the side of the crack, which causes surfaces to shrink or expand.

Our concrete flooring experts can reinforce damaged slabs to prevent structural concerns from worsening. They also protect against more severe structural concerns such as poor drainage due to consistent water exposure. These standard repairs are a great way to maintain your concrete and not compromise your floor’s structural integrity. 

Benefits of Concrete Coating

If you’re looking to improve the appearance and condition of your floors, concrete coating is an effective way to achieve your flooring goals. Epoxy and polyurea, two slip-resistant materials, are the industry standards for concrete coating. Whether you choose epoxy or polyurea, we use a precision-grind method that ensures smooth floors. 

Investing in coating and precision grinding is an affordable way to fix uneven floors or revamp the floor’s appearance to create a refreshed luster, giving your floors that brand new look. Polyurea and epoxy are suitable for residential and commercial use and are built to withstand foot traffic.  Also, concrete coating doesn’t overcomplicate your cleaning routine — you can opt for mild, traditional cleaning products. 

Polyurea is more durable than epoxy and can withstand extreme temperatures. While epoxy is sustainable and provides an equally attractive finish, polyurea is not malleable, meaning it won’t crack. When choosing between epoxy and polyurea coating, it helps to understand the factors that impact the overall cost, like floor condition, thickness, and décor details. 

How Much Does Concrete Coating Cost?

The price of epoxy and polyurea coating is determined according to labor costs and materials used. An epoxy coating ranges from $3 to $7 per square foot, whereas polyurea ranges from $5 to $8. The average homeowner can expect coating costs to range between $1,500 and $3,000 for a car garage service. 

Cost can also vary depending on the condition of your concrete floors — older surfaces will require additional coating and repair. Residential properties tend to have thicker flooring than commercial properties, which require more layers of coating. The more layers of coats you get, the more the cost increases. 

Depending on your personal preferences, décor details can be an affordable way to make your floors look more attractive. You can customize both epoxy and polyurea coating with your preferred color or design. If minor imperfections or stains are present, you can expect an additional cost for removal.
