One of the most important things to consider when you are laying or upgrading your concrete surface is concrete coating. Coatings help seal the concrete to keep out stains and water. You can also buy a non-slip coating in order to keep you and your family safe.

There are many color and brand options when it comes to buying non-slip coating. Different brands also have additional purposes, such as water resistance. There are, however, only two types of non-slip coatings.

Acid Etch Concrete Coatings

The first choice you have is to use an acid etch on your floor. This exposes the aggregate, making the surface rough. If you do this, you may also want to add an aggregate sealer. This sealer keeps the aggregate from loosening over time.

Non-Slip Sealer Concrete Coatings

Your second choice is a non-slip sealer. This sealer has a gritty substance mixed into the sealer. This grit is made of plastic and is transparent. This transparency allows painted textures and patterns to show through, so your hard work can be appreciated.

Depending on your needs, select one of these non-slip coatings for your concrete surface.
