Are you looking for a quick, easy, and cheap way to transform your garage? Perhaps you’ve been eyeing garage floor paint to do the job. Garage floor paint can change the color of your garage floors, but it’s not the best option for protection, strengthening, or durability. Here at Solid Garage Floor Coatings of Virginia, if you want to use garage floor paint for your floors, we recommend that you hire a professional floor painter for the job. If you want a floor coating that lasts, we provide high-quality garage floor coatings that can do just that.
Here’s what you need to know about what makes this floor paint different from other garage floor coating options and why you should be cautious when you use it.
Garage floor paint is different from other garage floor coating options in a number of ways. Many people are drawn to garage floor paint because it seems easy and cheap. All you need to do is pick it up from your local hardware store, after all, and how hard can it really be to apply it? Surely, all you have to do is bust out a paint brush and clear out your garage so you can paint the floors, and voila! Pretty, new garage floors.
IS GARAGE FLOOR PAINT WORTH IT?
We wish it was so simple as that! The truth is that garage floor paint is a lot more complicated than most people think. It’s cheaper than every other option for garage floor coatings for good reason: it both looks and performs like something cheap and low-quality. Here are some of the common issues with garage floor paint that most people aren’t educated about.
Garage floor paint may look pretty initially, but it quickly starts to peel and chip under the amount of daily traffic your garage floors see. That means that if you paint your garage floors, you’ll be needing to repaint them every few months to try to maintain their appearance. If you want your garage floors to look good for longer than a month or two, you’re better off with a more professional garage floor coating that is made to last. Otherwise, you’ve got a lot of work on your hands trying to keep your garage painted well.
Would you paint the floors in other areas of your home? Probably not, because the paint is made for walls, not for being able to withstand daily wear and tear from people walking all over it. Is it any wonder then that garage floor paint can make your garage dirtier? This is because all that daily wear and tear will cause the paint to chip, ergo, creating debris. Garages are already dirtier areas of your home, due to their exposure to outdoor elements, such as leaves, rain, and dirt. Garage floor paint causes them to get even dirtier, faster.

Yes, garage floor paint is the cheapest garage floor coating option, at least, initially. However, with how often you need to have it reapplied in order to maintain its appearance, that adds up over time. This is especially true when you factor in how challenging it can be to paint your garage floors, because you need special equipment to protect yourself and time to do the work and more. Garage floor paint requires an immense amount of maintenance, which makes it the exact opposite of an easy floor coating solution.
