Why You Should Avoid DIY Floor coatings

If you’ve been considering new floor coatings for your concrete floors, you may be thinking about the pros and cons of a DIY task. Should you take on installing the floor coatings on your own, or should you hire a professional to do the job?

While there is a tendency to try to take on home repairs as DIY projects these days, the truth is there are some things better left to the professionals– and floor coatings are definitely one of them. Here are some of the reasons professionally applied floor coatings are the way to go:

  • Floor Repair – If your concrete flooring needs any type of repair, it’s important to have a concrete contractor provide the necessary floor repairs. Not only will they be able to determine the best way to repair any cracks, chips, and other damage, but they will also prime your floor properly before applying floor coatings.
  • Proper Priming – Floor coatings require priming prior to putting down any colorations or topcoats. Without proper priming, your concrete floor coating could fail and have to be redone from scratch. This creates a huge waste of time and money if a DIY project goes wrong.
  • Equipment – While floor coatings may look simple to install, it’s important to have the proper equipment. You can save a lot of money by allowing a professional concrete contractor to handle the job with the right equipment rather than spending money on items you may only use once.
  • Safety – Any time you’re working with chemical floor coatings, you need to take safety precautions. When you allow the professionals to install your concrete floor coatings, you’ll know that the job will be done safely and effectively, without risk to your home, business, or the people inside.
  • Results – Ultimately, you’ll get the best results from professionally installed floor coatings. If you have any worries that your DIY project won’t go as planned, it’s better to call a concrete contractor to do the job.
