Southeast Wisconsin / Milwaukee Garage Floor Refinishing
After many years, any garage floor will need resurfacing in Wisconsin. Most garages start with unsealed or poorly sealed concrete. It is unlikely you heat your garage all winter long, making it endure the freezing and thawing cycles that can cause cracks to form. And any Wisconsinite knows the slush that falls off your car is going to drop off and let the salt eat away at the concrete. The damage to your garage floor may look bad, but left untreated, we both know the concrete is only going to get worse.
Here is the good news. Almost every garage floor can be saved by resurfacing the concrete by adding a new top surface. Minor damage to your garage floor can be fixed by filling in the cracks, preparing the surface to receive a new top coat, and adding an epoxy or urethane coating. Garages with more damage almost always can still be saved by adding a layer of epoxy or urethane mortar instead of a liquid epoxy.
We use products for your garage floor resurfacing that are durable, so durable that your garage floor will likely be stronger and more stain resistant than when it was new. We use products used to coat the concrete in warehousing facilities, manufacturing facilities, car dealerships, and airplane hangars. If our coatings and finishes can withstand heavy duty traffic in these facilities, just think of how long your garage will stay looking beautiful.
Most folks tell us, “I tried a coating and it was there for only a short time. Will your coating last?” That question is a great one to have. The biggest problem most folks have with their garage coatings is how the coating separates from the concrete over time. The “secret” to ensuring the coating stays on the old concrete is the preparation of the concrete. Even if you pressure washed the concrete ahead of time, it often isn’t enough to prepare the concrete to bond with the new coating. We use specialized equipment and industrial diamonds to prepare your concrete for refinishing. You will get a long-lasting coat on your concrete, and we back it up with a guarantee that your new floor will last for years to come.
We resurface a lot of garage floors. The benefit of a Black Rhino garage floor is that your garage floor can be stronger when we are done with it then when the concrete was first poured. We have coatings and finishes that are incredibly strong, chemical resistant, easy to clean, slip resistant, and we can do all sorts of things to make your garage floor look beautiful or have a “cool factor” like marble swirls, decals protected under a clear finish, and more.
Resurfacing your garage floor protects your investment and definitely improves the look of any garage. It is a great way to revitalize an old, tired looking garage by making the floor look and feel like it is brand new.
The best news is, our garage floor resurfacing is a lot cheaper than having someone break up the concrete and repour the slab. It generally takes us only one to three days to resurface a garage floor, depending on the current condition of the concrete and the coating chosen.
