Garage floors can really take a beating. Many metro Denver homeowners park SUVs and other heavy vehicles in their garages. Others use their garages as makeshift storage units, piling sections of their garage floors high with old furniture, appliances and other materials.
There are several factors to consider when deciding whether to repair, resurface, or remove and replace garage floors in the metro Denver area.
- Has the concrete settled in some places?
- Are there large cracks or cracks in multiple places?
- Is the damage on the surface level only, like pockmarking or crumbling?
If the concrete slabs in your garage floor were installed without a proper sub base, shifting soils and water drainage issues may cause problems like cracks and settling. Large vehicles, storage boxes, and other materials that are extremely heavy or placed unevenly on concrete slabs can also lead to cracking or settling. Poor quality materials or workmanship can lead to cracks or surface issues.
Most garage floor repairs, resurfacing and replacements can be done quickly and with minimal disruption to your home and landscape. If you would like the look of your garage floor to be something other than gray, we can stamp or stain your garage floor to replicate the appearance and color of natural stone or brick.

If a new garage floor is needed, Stone & Concrete’s professional crews will remove the old concrete slabs and properly prepare and compact the sub base to prevent your new garage floor from settling or cracking. We typically use rebar to strengthen concrete slabs and recommend letting the concrete cure, a chemical process that strengthens and hardens the concrete, before parking vehicles or placing other materials on it.
