Skip the Slips with Garage Store’s Stair Repair

Whether you are planning to sell your home soon or just want to have one of the most attractive homes in your neighborhood, curb appeal is important.  Picking just the right shade of blue, red, green (or other color) for the front door often starts the process. For many, adding the right plants and having a well-manicured lawn completes it.

But what about your front porch?

Most houses today are built with the same boring grey cement porch and steps.  Over time the cement may become pitted, cracked and stained.  Adding a Welcome mat does little to enhance the look of the dreary porch.

While tearing out and rebuilding an ugly porch is expensive, messy and disruptive, revitalizing an existing porch with a commercial grade UV-stable concrete coating installed by Garage Store may be the perfect solution.  These outdoor coatings are designed to handle harsh winters, hot summers and pounding rain.

These coatings resist fading and come in an almost infinite array of colors – designed to coordinate with your siding, your door and even the plants in your yard.

But why stop at the front porch?

Continuing the coating down the sidewalk or on your patio will add even more of a “punch” of color and beauty to your property.  The concrete coatings are not only beautiful, but can repair cracks and pits, providing a surface that is safe and comfortable to walk on. The coatings also reduce the risk of slip and falls, which will make your homeowner insurance agent happy.

At Garage Store Illinois, our mission is to help people organize their space with quality products.  We design and install organization solutions and we provide concrete coating systems.

While our name is Garage Store, we go beyond just the garage.  Any area of your home, office or warehouse will benefit from being more organized.  Our epoxy coatings make concrete floors less dusty, healthier and much easier to clean.

In fact, your garage is just the beginning!

Classrooms/Instructional Centers

Classroom

When you think about it, classrooms get a lot of abuse.  There are dozens of students coming through on a daily basis.  When you have a room that needs organizing, but also needs to hold up to a lot of wear and tear Gladiator GarageWorks storage solutions may be the perfect option.  This classroom has a combination of Wall Gear Boxes and Modular Gear Drawers with Modular Maple Tops.  This option doesn’t just provide adequate storage; it also provides a heavy-duty workspace.

 

Basement Flooring

A customer in Plainfield, IL had a massive flood in her basement.  The basement was carpeted and the flood destroyed the carpet and padding.  After having it removed she wanted a flooring solution that would be durable, yet attractive.  Using our Epoxy, Polyurea and Polyaspartic Concrete Coating System, we provided a flooring option that is attractive and easy to clean – a great alternative to bare concrete, tile, carpet or laminate. The best part is it won’t pop up, peel, or have to be removed if the basement floods in the future.

 

Office Area

Offices (either at home or off-site) are areas that need work spaces and good storage options.  Modular Gear Boxes with a Modular Maple top are a versatile and useful option for this home office that will last a lifetime.

 

Laundry Room

Ask anyone who does the family’s laundry and they will tell you how important storage and a good workspace are for this usually neglected area.  Gladiator GarageWorks storage systems are versatile and functional, providing not only a place to fold laundry, but sturdy storage solutions that will make a trip to the laundry room a pleasure.

 

Patios/Porches

Creating a floor that will hold up to the elements – including motor oil, gasoline and winter salt – is what we do and it is a perfect solution for a garage. However, that same flooring system works for any outdoor concrete surface as well. Whether it is a patio, porch or driveway, our exterior coatings are a fantastic solution to cracked or pitted surfaces. The bonus is that our exterior concrete coatings will cost less than tearing out and re-pouring new concrete.
