For the same reason you wear a helmet when riding a bike or a seatbelt in the car - protection.
Concrete surfaces may look and feel unbreakable, but damage happens gradually on a micro-level. While you may not notice the effects of oil, moisture, chemical spills, impact, and weather, your concrete can crack, fade, and stain.
A sealer protects your concrete from daily wear and tear, as it’s harder than the concrete itself. Standard concrete typically has a compression strength of 4,000 to 5,000 PSI. Whereas coating clocks in at 10,000 PSI or more (two to three times stronger than concrete).
With this coating your concrete enjoys a durable finish that moisture, oils and spills can’t penetrate. At the same time, it offers UV-resistance to prevent fading and premature aging.
The end result?
Your concrete lasts longer, requires less maintenance, and looks stunning year after year.
If you've got a concrete floor, whether inside, outside or your garage floor, there's a good chance you’ll want it to maintain its look and durability for as long as possible. The concrete sealer market is roughly divided into two broad categories: surface sealers and penetrating sealers.
To this end, there are two primary surface sealing/coating options available:
But how do you tell which option is right for you?
Here’s a short breakdown of each option to help you make an informed decision.
Acrylic sealers are available as water-based or solvent-based formulas. These are used to enhance the colour of your current or future concrete floors while adding protection across interior and exterior settings. Applied as a thin layer of film, acrylic sealants protect against water and chloride while allowing moisture in your slab to escape.
Epoxy coating, in contrast, provides a protective film that is non-porous, providing advanced protection against water, spills, chemicals, and moisture of all kinds. Typically with a glossy finish, it is the preferred choice for many Melbourne homeowners and businesses who value longevity, abrasion resistance, and a premium finish.

Sealing your Melbourne concrete floors does more than keep moisture away. With this type of coating, you’ll enjoy floors that look better, last longer, and keep money in your pocket.
Read on for some of the main advantages:
This is the first (and most important) step. Without proper preparation, your coating may fail to bond with your concrete surface, leading to structural problems that invite damage and moisture over time. This step may include concrete grinding or levelling to ensure all coatings are long-lasting and of the highest quality.
You probably enjoy some time out in the sun, but your concrete surfaces don’t. The sun’s harmful UV rays can lead to fading and discolouration, but by sealing your concrete with this type of coating, you’ll prevent premature fading and keep your surfaces looking fresh for longer.
Your concrete is already durable, but with epoxy protection you increase the lifespan of your slab by decades (up to 25 years in the right conditions). The less maintenance and repair required, the more money you keep in your pocket.
Unsealed concrete can attract moisture that seeps into the pores of your concrete. Not only does this cause hairline fractures and cracks, but excess moisture creates the perfect conditions for mould and bacteria. With a non-porous seal, this coating keeps mould and bacteria at bay, and your surfaces clean inside and out.
Despite adding decades of endurance, applying the coating is a quick and straightforward process when managed by Melbourne’s leading flooring experts at Flawless Floorz. That means less disruption to your life or business and less worry about the state of your concrete surfaces.
Epoxy coating costs between $30 to $35 per m2 for two coats over a prepared concrete surface.

Generally speaking, you’ll find more cost-effective prices for larger surface areas as the set-up and preparation costs can go toward a larger project. Be sure to provide as much detail as possible when requesting quotes. Most garages and commercial floors aren’t in pristine condition, and any extra floor prep will increase your price.
At Flawless Floorz, we understand the importance of staying in control of your household or business budget. For that reason, all of our concrete services are budget-friendly with zero hidden fees or charges waiting to sting you down the line.

Direct experience, skill, and correct licenses and insurance are the pillars of a professional flooring company.
Flooring companies can have years of experience working with decorative concrete or acrylic sealants, but if they don’t have a track record of success supplying and installing this type of coatings, they’ll quickly find themselves in a sticky situation (literally).
Outside of these steps, you’ll want to compare a handful of local flooring companies to find the right option for you. Although Google or word of mouth will offer plenty of choices, you’ll need to do your homework to find the best business.

How often will my concrete floors need sealing?
Don’t be fooled by Melbourne flooring companies who tell you your concrete needs annual sealing (they’re more interested in your money than adding value). We recommend sealing concrete every 2 to 5 years, depending on the amount of traffic and wear and tear it receives.
If your garage is used to house the family car, you’ll likely need fewer resealing services than a commercial garage with heavy vehicle traffic.
Staying on top of your recommended resealing ensures your concrete surfaces remain protected, your seal stays in optimal condition, and you get the most value out of your floors.
Floors may not be the sexiest home improvement project, but they are one of the most important.
Damage to your slab can result in significant repairs, and we’re talking about the disruption as well as the costs. Avoid making this problem worse by picking the wrong flooring team who doesn’t have a background in this type of coatings.
A little research will go a long way and help you separate the unlicensed cowboys from the professional, licensed, and insured teams. At Flawless Floorz, we understand the intricacies of all flooring settings.
With a commitment to 100% satisfaction, we strive to exceed your expectations from project inception to completion. Whether it’s working to your schedule after hours or on weekends, offering complimentary tips to help you meet the design needs of your business, or sharing transparent quotes that allow you to make big-picture decisions without worry, there’s always help at hand.

Cured epoxy poses no health risks with all of our market-leading resins offering no VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) or other harmful vapours. Although liquid epoxy may produce vapours during the drying process, we adhere to the highest safety regulations and processes to ensure your garage, home, business, or industrial space is safe until your coating is cured.
We don’t recommend applying this type of coating to a painted concrete surface as the paint will inhibit optimal bonding to your concrete surface. We offer a range of floor preparation services including concrete grinding and concrete polishing to strip any coatings and install a new coating that’s fully bonded and engineered to stand the test of time.
This material is naturally slip-resistant and ideal for heavy foot traffic areas like commercial kitchens or retail outlets. However, we can apply an optional non-slip finish to provide even more grip. This is typically used in locations that experience a lot of rain.
