Summer is upon us, which means we’re spending plenty of time outdoors on our patio, having barbeques, visiting with friends and family, and just sitting out and enjoying the fresh air and warm temperatures. The last thing you want is for the condition of your patio to detract from your experiences or to discourage you from using it. Patio coatings can improve your patio’s aesthetic appeal and enhance its durability so that you can enjoy neighborhood cookouts with confidence that your patio both looks great and is safe for people to walk around on.
There are many different reasons why people opt for a patio coating, from wanting to protect their patio’s surface from the elements to wanting to improve the curb appeal of their home. Here are some of the most common reasons why people get patio coatings and why you should consider getting a patio coating for your home.
#1. Prevent Degradation
You can escape the heat or take the party inside if it starts to rain, but your patio is constantly exposed to the elements. The weather can take quite a toll on your patio, as rain, snow, hail, and UV rays cause quite a bit of wear and tear on your patio’s surface. With how exposed your patio is, it’s among the most vulnerable areas of your home to damages. Indeed, even just exposure to the sun can cause your patio to degrade faster – and here in Utah, we get a lot of sun in the summer months. It is a desert state, after all.
A patio coating can protect your patio and help to stave off damages that can result from the elements. Patio coatings are typically made to be UV resistant, as well as water and pressure resistant. This helps ensure that your patio doesn’t wear down as quickly and prevents degradation and fading. Patio coatings also protect your patio from mold, mildew, and other such contaminants that can end up damaging the porous concrete.
#2. Help Your Patio Stand Up To Regular Use
If you’re someone who likes to be outside and to use your patio for gatherings and visiting with friends and family, your patio is likely needing to withstand quite a bit of foot traffic and pressure from furniture and the like. A patio coating helps your patio stand up to regular use, which in turn makes your patio safer, since you won’t have to worry so much about people tripping over cracks in your patio or slipping on a wet patch.
These floor coatings keep your patio protected from all the spills that can happen when people use it, such as from drinks and chemicals. They also protect your patio from the damages that can result from moving furniture and impact, which can happen quite frequently, especially if you’re trying to make space for guests and then want to set everything back in its proper place after everyone’s gone home.
#3. Make Maintenance A Breeze
Maintaining your patio can be quite challenging. It can be difficult to clean concrete surfaces, especially if something spills on them. Plus, with how much weather exposure patios endure, this can lead to needing all sorts of repairs, such as cracking and more. One common reason why people get patio coatings is so that they can reduce the amount of maintenance that they need to have done on their patios.
These coatings make maintenance easier because they provide a protective layer on top of your patio that is damage resistant. This helps to lessen the amount of repairs that you need to have done in order to keep your patio in good condition. They also make maintenance easier because it’s so much easier to wipe up any spills from a moisture resistant surface than from one that is porous. Thus, a coating can make maintaining your patio infinitely easier.
#4. Improve Your Patio’s Appearance
Another common reason why people choose to have patio coatings installed is because they’re quite beautiful. Floor coatings can be customized to many different colors and styles, so that your patio can match your desired aesthetic. There’s no need to have this dull, drab, grey patio when you can have a beautiful patio coating installed that instantly makes your space more cohesive and put together. Floor coatings can go a long way to improve the curb appeal of your home.
