If you’re thinking about painting, coating or sealing your home’s concrete floors – whether that’s your garage, basement or other auxiliary space – you have a few choices to make. The two most common concrete finishes for homes are polished concrete and coated concrete. Both are beautiful, durable, and inexpensive when compared to other types of flooring. But both have different benefits and use cases. So, let’s take a look at them side by side based on a few common criteria you might be thinking about.

So, you’ve finally got the potential to have the garage of your dreams. Storage galore. Space for all your toys and tools. Maybe even a permanent home for that vintage coupe you’ve had your eye on. It’s all coming together. And choosing a coated garage floor might just be the foundation to build it all upon.
