Besides patios, our coatings adapt to many other exterior surfaces, such as driveways, garages, sidewalks, and pool decks.

The winters in Duluth, MN, are freezing, windy, and snowy. If you do not have a durable coating of polyurea and polyaspartic on your concrete patio floor, a slick and icy patio can easily cause slip-and-fall incidents and severe injuries. Once we cover your patio with a texture profile and non-slip additives, you’ll have a safer surface.

With our affordable one-day coating application process, our goal is to take the pressure off your shoulders and make the coating process as simple as possible. So, give us a call today to get a free, non-obligatory quote.

Why Polyurea-and-Polyaspartic Patio Coatings are Better than Epoxy

Your patio floor should be able to resist the extremes of the Minnesota weather, heavy foot traffic, the wear and tear from patio furniture and grills, and everyday stains. Although an epoxy patio floor was formerly a cost-effective and durable solution, today’s next-gen industry leader polyaspartic has left epoxy far behind in terms of sturdiness, longevity, shine, and UV stability.

Polyurea-and-polyaspartic patio coatings have an exceptional finish that lasts for decades. Unlike epoxy patio coatings, they have a super-fast cure time (24 hours or less, while epoxy takes several days). Polyaspartic is also four times stronger than epoxy, making it chemical resistant and perfect for commercial floorings.

While epoxy coating for concrete patios can protect the surface, it can’t match the features polyurea and polyaspartic offer. We can apply polyurea and polyaspartic at any temperature, unlike epoxy outdoor patio coatings, and the application won’t impact the surface. Epoxy, on the other hand, is challenging to apply in extreme cold or hot temperatures.
