What Can Damage Concrete Flooring ?

Home / Blog / What Can Damage Concrete Flooring ?

While a garage floor made of concrete may not be subject to the same stress as an outdoor concrete structure, it can still suffer damage. Here are the main culprits:

1: Poor installation

Sad but true: Even the best contractor in the world won’t be able to save our concrete floor if it was poorly installed. That is why it is crucial to select the right materials and/or contractor.


2. Climate/temperature

A concrete floor will rarely be directly exposed to the elements, but the area’s temperatures can still have an impact on the condition of your floor. For example, a cold-temperate climate means more frequent freezing and thawing, which can damage the concrete, while those living in a warm climate will avoid this problem entirely. Therefore, in winter you need to maintain a humidity level of no more than 45-50% and, if the garage isn’t used on a daily basis, it’s best to keep it at an average temperature of 8 degrees Celsius.


3. Abrasive products

With Quebec winters, use of abrasive salt is a must. Unfortunately, this salt (mainly composed of sodium chloride) can cause concrete surfaces to flake and peel, which is why it’s crucial to have a good quality surfacing.


4. Poor coating

The surface, while not directly exposed to the elements, can be damaged due to erosion, abrasion and flaking. Therefore, apply a coating to maintain the condition of the surface. Most floor coating solutions offered by Surfacex are resistant to harsh abrasives, oil and dust
