The Benefits of Painting Your Garage Floor

Your garage goes through a lot over the years, from dirt and dust to car fluid spills to pet dander to frequent exposure to the outside world. Not many people stop to think about the condition of their garage floors, but if you spend a lot of time in your garage, you’ve probably noticed that it could use a little sprucing up. Whether you own a residential or commercial garage, your concrete floors would benefit from some extra love. Painting and sealing your floor is one of the quickest ways to bring life back into your garage.

Why Paint Is Great for Concrete

Painting the concrete floors in your garage may not seem like a necessity. After all, it’s just concrete. But there are several reasons why painting your garage floor is a great idea.

  • Spills are bound to happen, even in the garage. Painted concrete is more resistant to spills, preventing stains and making clean up much easier.
  • Extreme dust build-up will also be a thing of the past if you decide to paint your garage floor. The paint makes it harder for dust to stick, and cleaning any dust that does accumulate will be as easy as a quick sweep through the garage.
  • The right color of paint will give your garage a unique look. Say goodbye to that drab gray concrete and say hello to a garage with character. Who says your garage can’t be as beautiful and welcoming as the rest of your home?
  • Besides easier clean up and aesthetic appeal, painting your concrete garage floor also adds an important element of protection for you home. The paint acts as a layer of insulation against heat and cold, which diminishes the chances of your floor cracking due to changes in temperature.

Your Paint Options

There are a few different options you can choose from when you paint your garage floor. Stains are a very popular choice for concrete. Water based stains are used to penetrate the concrete and create a new, permanent color. Your color options with stains are almost unlimited. Whether you want a subtle color for your garage floor or something bold and totally unique, there is a stain for you. Dyes are another option, and they come in both solvent and water formulas. Dyes tend to produce deeper color saturation and they can create a range of effects, from chemical stains to marbling to a solid, bright color. You could also go with a simple sealer, which will protect your concrete floor from damage while providing you with a subtle tint.

Epoxy Coating

The final step in the painting process is the epoxy coating. Your beautifully painted garage floor will look brand new for years to come when you choose to finish with an epoxy coating. The coating dries completely in about a day, won’t discolor, fade, or crack, and is resistant to impact damage, chemicals, scratching, and tire marks. It’s a great way to ensure the protection of your floor while adding a glamorous shine to your garage.

Reasonably Priced & Very Detailed

We have a three unit, two story condo building that needed an exterior painting job we awarded to FCI Painting. Their proposal was reasonably priced and very detailed. Richard Foden’s came to estimate the job and took the time to explain the process, answer questions and provide recommendations (that help us in our process). We received four proposals and FCI’s stood out making our decision straight forward. FCI crew was professional and the foreman ‘Eduardo’ exceptional. On a daily basis’s he communicated what to expect, what they would be achieving and the crews next steps. Crew was courteous and cleaned up the grounds every evening. We highly recommend FCI Painting company. Thanks

Incredible Service

I honestly cannot recommend this company enough. I was attempting to find painters in Naples while I was still in Canada. Richard and his team were so helpful in the process, going above and beyond what I could have ever imagined. They were thorough, professional, and one of the best prices I found in the area. Incredible service.

Can’t Recommend FCI Painting enough

I can’t recommend FCI Painting enough! Owner Richard Foden runs one of the finest painting companies I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. When my business moved into our new office, we started researching painters in Naples, FL and FCI came highly recommended. The commercial painters that Richard works with are prompt, thorough and professional. After working with them in a business setting, I’ll be certain to give Richard a call next time I’m in need of house painters as well.

Competitive & Fair

FCI Painting did an outstanding job for us and we are more than pleased with the results. We found the pricing to be competitive and fair. Our painter, Chris, was an expert craftsman, patched several areas of drywall that needed attention and helped us work through a problem we had with one of the colors we chose. We would definitely recommend FCI painting for anyone looking for a quality job at a fair price.
