Concrete Coatings

Installing a garage floor coating doesn’t sound so hard, especially if you are a DIYer who has successfully worked on other areas of your home. However, a lot of things sound easier than they really are, and before you know it, you’ve destroyed your floor and you’ve spent hundreds or even thousands of dollars to do it.

If you want to install a concrete coating, it is important to turn to Southwest Exteriors instead of doing it on your own.

Proper Construction

An epoxy coating is more than just the finished look you see on the surface. A lot of work goes into making sure the base is properly constructed so the coating will last.

Southwest Exteriors knows what to look for to ensure the concrete base that's being used is properly reinforced and we know the right way to deal with cracks, buckling, and inconsistencies in your existing concrete. DIYers rarely get this part of the process right, which means your floor won’t last.

Perfectly Level Surface

One of the hardest parts of installing a floor coating is getting the surface perfectly even. It’s a lot like trying to draw a straight light. It sounds a lot easier than it actually is to do!

Not only are our professional installation techs equipped to provide you with a perfectly level surface, we can also provide you with a textured surface with a professional finish. Our tools enable us to create a finished surface that you just can’t get with DIY tools.

Backed by Industry Leading Warranties

The installation of the floor is just as important as the product being used. Without a proper installation, freezing weather, chemicals, and heavy impacts can destroy your floor. If you DIYed it, you’re left to deal with the aftermath on your own.

At Southwest Exteriors, we are confident in our installations. So confident, in fact, that we back our installations with industry leading warranties. If something goes wrong with your floor, we’ll do what it takes to make it right.

Whether you’re looking for a garage floor coating, a new basement floor, or anything in between, we can save you time and money by installing your floor right the first time. Give us a call or fill out our online form to get your free estimate!
