Proper maintenance of the sealed concrete garage floor installed by the best garage floor sealing company Southern Illinois will allow you to enjoy a beautiful and durable garage floor for many years.

Topical Floor Sealants

A garage floor receiving light to moderate traffic would require a topical sealant. Topical sealers bond with the concrete surface creating a protective layer.

Penetrating Floor Sealants

This type of floor sealer penetrates deep into the concrete floor forming a chemical barrier for protection against moisture including gasoline and oil leaks.

Penetrating floor sealants do not alter the appearance of the concrete surface. Siloxanes, silanes, siliconates, and silicates are the most common penetrating floor sealants. They are applied with a pump sprayer and require only one coat to provide protection.

Garage Floor Sealing Company

Prior to the application of the concrete floor sealant, a garage floor sealing company  ensures the proper preparation of the concrete floor. This is to ensure the proper bonding of the sealant and the concrete garage floor.  

Before our installers at Southern Illinois Epoxy do anything they first make sure that outside temperature is at least 50F. They will then start to clear out your garage removing as much of the debris and dirt as possible.

The sealant of choice is applied in the same manner as paint. In other words, application starts at one corner of the garage and all the way to the entrance. The sealer is then allowed to cure to ensure good adherence with the concrete floor.

  • Epoxy. This topical garage floor sealant is the thickest and most durable topical sealant. It is a mixture of a resin and a hardener that bind extremely well with the concrete floor as a result of a chemical reaction.

    Epoxy is so durable that it can resist abrasion, moisture, oil and other fluids from your vehicle. This topical sealant is applied as you would apply paint to achieve a high gloss finish.

  • Acrylic. This topical garage floor sealant is applied with a roller or a pump spray. For the best protection to your garage floor, Southern Illinois Epoxy recommends two coats of this sealant.

    An acrylic topical sealant creates a slightly glossy and wet look. For best results, this topical sealer needs to be re-applied every 18 to 24 months. It is however the least expensive topical sealant.

    Your garage floor will be ready to accept foot and vehicle traffic one day after application of this topical sealant.

  • Polyurethane. This is the least common and most expensive topical sealant. It comes with UV protection. For best bonding results, a primer needs to be applied prior to polyurethane application
