It’s Not Epoxy Garage Floor Coating—It’s Better!

An epoxy-like garage floor coating won’t just make your floors look better. It will also add value to your home or business as well! Polyurea provides benefits beyond epoxy. Here are just a few of the advantages of having your garage floors coated:

Damage Resistant

A polyurea coating will give your garage floor the durability to withstand the elements it’s exposed to every day. Even under the weight of multiple vehicles, polyurea surfaces will not chip, peel, or crack as epoxy garage floor coatings sometimes do. That means you can say goodbye to that unsightly damaged garage floors that are so prone to acquiring over time.

No-Slip Surface

Most floor coatings get slick when wet. However, unlike epoxy, polyurea coatings have a non-slip grip that prevents dangerous slip-and-fall accidents. This aspect is particularly advantageous in commercial environments.

Easy to Maintain

Whether it is oil, anti-freeze, or brake fluid, many chemicals used in garages are difficult to clean up if spilled. However, unlike epoxy garage floors that require special cleaning chemicals, polyurea floor coatings clean up quickly and easily with just a bit of warm, soapy water.

Aesthetically Appealing

If you have your heart set on the look of a metallic epoxy floor, polyurea can deliver. Our polyurea coatings come in many vinyl flakes and color options that can deliver a showroom-level quality floor fast.

Polyurea versus Epoxy Garage Floor Coatings

While epoxy floor coatings are still an upgrade from traditional concrete floor paint, it is no match for polyurea floor coatings. In addition to being four times as durable and offering twice the longevity, polyurea coatings cure faster, meaning you can enjoy your new floor that much sooner.

Polyurea coating also offers significantly more flexibility despite its thickness. In fact, polyurea garage floor coatings are 98% more flexible than traditional epoxy. Additionally, polyurea boasts 300% more elasticity than epoxy. Both points prevent damage due to expansion or impact.

Last but not least, polyurea is extremely UV resistant. Unlike other garage epoxy, polyurea surfaces will not turn yellow due to exposure to sunlight. Even if your garage isn’t exposed to a ton of direct sunlight, it can take its toll over time.

You also have the option to match your garage floors with your driveway or walkways creating a seamless professional look. Polyurea coating can be used on any concrete surface, whether that be your garage, basement, patio, or otherwise.

Gorgeous Garage Floors in Three Simple Steps

We’ve spent years perfecting our application process and take the time to get the job done right. While every job is a little different, every project involves three basic steps:

1. Prep Work

First, we carefully prepare the surface for the new coating via minimal dust-diamond grinding or shot blasting, then level out the surface with Penntek menders and fillers.

2. Application

The next step is to apply a Penntek Polyurea base coating that creates a durable foundation. Next, we cast the chips by hand to create the desired color and texture for the project. Finally, we scrape and vacuum away any standing chips to create a smooth and seamless surface.

3. Clear Coating

After the installation portion of the project is complete, we apply a UV stable polyaspartic clear topcoat that seals the new flooring and provides a stunning shine. Your new floor will be ready to walk on within 6 to 8 hours, but it may take 24-48 hours to cure completely.

Polyaspartic Floor Coatings dry more quickly than Epoxy Floor Coatings, and the finish is also more durable.  Our floor concrete coating finishes are also more slip-resistant and will not discolor like some Epoxy Floor Coatings.

How Long Do I Need To Stay Off My Concrete Floor Coating After It Is Installed?

Our flooring cures within a few hours, however our team of professionals recommends waiting at least 4-6 hours before walking on your brand new concrete coated flooring. After 12 hours, you can begin moving lightweight objects onto the flooring, like light patio furniture.  We recommend waiting a full 24 hours before moving anything heavy back into the area where we’ve applied the coating (your car, heavy equipment or furniture etc.).

Will My New Concrete Floor Coating Turn Yellow?

It sure won’t! Our concrete floor coverings will not yellow or discolor, because they are UV stable. This  one of the many benefits of using Polyurea or Polyaspartic floor coatings.

Will I Need To Reseal My Concrete Floor Coating?

If you follow our maintenance and cleaning guidelines, you should not have to worry about resealing the concrete floor coating. We offer a professional grade cleaner that will easily remove stains or tire marks, but will also preserve the life of your concrete coating topcoat.

How Long Does It Take You To Apply Concrete Floor Coatings?

We’ve perfected our 6-step application process, so most typical projects take between 5-10 hours depending on the square footage.  We pride ourselves in a one-day application, and will do everything possible to stay within that time frame.  Rainy weather can delay the project, but it is rare.

How Do I Care For My Concrete Floor Coating?

You can clean our concrete coatings with typical sweeping, mopping or steaming, and hoses.  We offer maintenance services should your concrete flooring ever need cleaning, however you can also use non-abrasive cleaners, like CLR, to remove grease or other stains. 

Will Oil Stain My Concrete Floor Coating?

Armor coatings are oil resistant as well as moisture resistant.

It was originally developed to coat metal bridges.  It was later used to coat concrete flooring due to its durability and moisture resistance. Polyurea is also used to coat truck bed liners.

Can Polyaspartic Floor Coatings Be Used Outside?

They sure can!  We offer wonderful solutions for driveways, patios, and even the area around the pool.  Our coatings are all UV stable, which will help prevent discoloration or flaking.

What Types Of Environments Can Polyaspartic Floor Coatings Be Used?

Polyaspartic flooring coatings can be used in a variety of environments.  The durability, slip resistant finish is fantastic for any industrial setting, storefronts, patios, or even driveways or garages.

You can!  Polyaspartic floor coatings are safe to apply in temperatures as cold as -40 degrees.

How Long Do Polyaspartic Floor Coatings Take To Dry?
