Concrete provides a reliable and durable surface for the vehicles and storage you keep in your garage. When selecting an outdoor, or partially outdoor, material in Milwaukee, it is particularly important to consider the effects of drastic season changes on the integrity of the material over time. Because concrete is built to last through such conditions, choosing concrete garage flooring will put you a step ahead in terms of durability as well as design versatility, and simple maintenance.
Concrete Garage Flooring Lasts A Long Time
The first thing to know about picking concrete floors for your garage is that they will almost certainly last a long time, provided a few steps are taken during and prior to installation. Most importantly, you will want to choose a reliable concrete company because a proper installation is key for a long-lasting concrete garage floor. There is no substitute for professionally installed and high-quality concrete.
Concrete professionals will know how to properly mix and pour your concrete as well as what steps to take to ensure it sets evenly. These steps, along with simple routine maintenance, help ensure that your concrete floor will handle the harsh Milwaukee winters. Additionally, choosing the correct concrete company to do the work upfront will be the most cost-effective choice in the long run, leaving you with a durable concrete garage floor for years to come.
Concrete is Aesthetically Versatile
Another advantage of concrete for your garage floor is its aesthetic versatility. You can choose from decorative concrete options that include both stamped and colored concrete. So, if it is time for a replacement concrete slab and you’re getting a little tired of that same old gray shade, consider designing a truly unique garage floor that complements your home. Stamped concrete can imitate other materials, such as stone and brick. Paired with the option to color concrete in shades ranging from natural browns to ruddy reds and to sunny subdued golds, your options for a visually appealing concrete garage floor are endless.
Concrete Is Easy to Clean & Maintain
Possibly the most compelling reason to choose a concrete garage floor is that concrete is incredibly easy to clean and maintain. Of course, you’ll ideally want to sweep your concrete garage floors regularly to keep debris and wet materials, such as leaves, from piling up and settling into the floor. Another good regular practice is spraying down the concrete with a hose to dislodge dirt and bugs. Every once in a while, you may want to conduct a deeper cleaning. The simplest and most effective way to deep clean concrete is with a power washer. This activity will help you remove more tricky grit and mildew and can be completed in a short amount of time.
While concrete certainly can stain, there are options for mitigating those when they occur. A basic cleaning solution, bleach or ammonia will do the trick with a little scrubbing. But, be sure not to combine bleach and ammonia as they two do not get along! Invest in a good scrubbing brush or two and keep a couple of cleaning products on hand, and you’ll be stain-free in no time.
