Benefits of Coating Outdoor Spaces

When the weather is right, there are few things better than outdoor gatherings and spending time in the fresh air. Of course, a lot of work goes into keeping your outdoor spaces in good shape. Environmental conditions like sun, snow, and extreme temperatures can take a toll year-round, and frequent use of these areas will also contribute to wear and tear. Investing in concrete coatings on the floors of your entry way, porch, pool deck, or patio can help minimize the damage done to your outdoor features so you can enjoy them to the fullest extent. We’re covering 8 reasons why concrete floor coatings are a must if you want to get the most out of your home’s outdoor spaces.

Enhanced Protection Against Elements 

Bare concrete floors are durable but porous, meaning dirt, dust, moisture, bacteria, fungi, pests, and other small contaminants can make their way inside and cause problems. Prolonged exposure to sunlight and UV radiation can also damage your floors and cause them to fade. Even if your patio or porch floors are protected by an awning or enclosure, these environmental forces will wear them down over time. By applying concrete coatings to your floors, you seal off those pores, gaps, and cracks to minimize outdoor threats while also providing a UV-resistant layer of protection.

Improved Durability and Longevity of Outdoor Surfaces

Outdoor elements and regional climate aren’t the only threats to your outdoor spaces. All of the time you spend on your patio or porch takes a toll, too. Regular cookouts can cause all sorts of debris to land on your floors, for example. Moreover, moving furniture around and simply treading upon these floors day in and day out will wear them down if they’re not properly protected. High-quality concrete patio coatings are designed to withstand these various pressures, so all of the wear and tear from regular use won’t harm them.

Increased Resistance to Stains, Spills, & Chemicals

Concrete coatings are remarkably resilient and don’t chip or crack like other flooring opitons. A premium coating product like polyurea is chemical and heat resistant and is not susceptible to spills, dirt, and other staining.

Concrete floor coatings have a long lifetime. This long lasting protection will help to extend the overall lifetime of your concrete surfaces.

Use it in the high traffic areas of your home and stop fretting about young children, the elderly, or your clumsy next door neighbor taking a spill on a wet pool deck or entryway.
