The Best Cement Garage Slabs & Pads In Saskatoon
Concrete garage slabs are smaller pieces of individual cemented slabs that are formed and placed into a foundation setting for the flooring of a garage. These concrete slabs are thick and solid, providing a reliable and highly durable surface to park vehicles on, provide storage for all kinds of items like heavy appliances or personal belongings, and are intended to serve you well for extended periods of time with minimal maintenance or repairs needed.
Concrete Garage Slabs
Concrete garage slabs need to be poured to meet local building regulations while also being able to withstand heavy weather elements and the weight of the rest of the building structure. This means that slabs must be a certain thickness in order to satisfy code requirements for safety purposes. When pouring your garage slabs, we must also take into consideration how the existing foundation can and will support the slabs. If the existing foundation does not have the strength to support new garage slabs for any reason, then we may also need to consider repairing your foundation or a new concrete garage approach. Nevertheless, we’re here to help you find solutions to your concrete and garage problems in no time!
Once your garage slabs have been installed into the foundation, it is then time to consider finishing them with a durable coating. We often recommend epoxy for garage floor settings because of its high shine and durability, further protecting your concrete from potential damages or stains that could come from the oil drippings of any vehicles. Epoxy coatings are painted onto the surface of your concrete, once it has completely dried, and are then able to give your standard concrete a bright and shiny gloss, which is both reflective and long-lasting, meaning your concrete will essentially be looked after for you!
What better way to finish off your home’s basement than with concrete flooring? Similar to garage slabs, basement is often poured near the foundation of the home and can be formed into slabs or free-pouring open frames. The method chosen is usually similar to whatever method was used to build the home’s concrete foundation. Most of the time, if clients have ideas for their basement, they’ll use concrete as a starting place for future designs and interiors. Whether they decide to later add carpet on top of the cement floors or if the concrete is being used for wall interiors, which will later be painted, the options are endless when it comes to using concrete for your basement finishing project.
Basic upkeep for concrete garage slabs is required but no more than what you would do to your interior floors. With an epoxy coating on top of your garage slabs, cleaning and upkeep is usually minimal and only requires removing dirt and debris with water and a soft cloth or mop. We recommend resealing and recoating your floors every few years to ensure their integrity in maintained, along with regular cleanings.
