Long-lasting and Durable Concrete Coating

Everyone knows that winters in Minnesota and Wisconsin can be among the most brutal. Freezing temperatures, excessive wind, and mounds of snow paired with hot and humid summers chip away at your concrete coating. This will leave your concrete susceptible to faster decaying rates than those indoors.

So, you’ll want to ensure that your concrete coating is professional, long-lasting, and durable. Armor Coating uses the highest quality materials for a product that will last. Likewise, with our team of experts, you know your concrete will be done correctly the first time.

Bad Concrete Can Mean Unsafe Conditions

When you’re thinking about concrete floors, safety probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But with your outdoor steps and porch concrete coatings, a crumbling coating or shoddy job can bring potential for accidents. Kids playing or elderly folks walking on concrete with cracks or holes in it can easily trip or fall. In the winters, anyone is at risk to injury. Midwest winters bring ice and sleet that will make anyone slip on poor concrete. Armor Coating has a smooth, slip-resistant coating that will bring peace of mind to everyone walking on it.

Polyurea and Polyaspartic Coatings for Better Results

Armor Coating uses a combination of polyurea and polyaspartic rather than an epoxy coating. With this industry-leading combination, your coating will dry more quickly and be more durable than epoxy. It’s also better against UV light, abrasions, water, and more. It’s the perfect choice for your outdoor concrete, and that’s why we back it up with a 15-year warranty. You won’t have to wonder if you’re getting the right product for your home.
