Garage Floor Coatings: They’re Not Created Equal
Do you cringe at the sight of your pitted and stained garage floor? Has it become unsafe with crumbling concrete, cracks, or slick spots caused by years of leaked oil?
The garage is the first part of your house you see when arriving home and is often the largest room in the house. So to make the garage a safe extension of the home’s living space, homeowners are investing in concrete coatings for the garage.
“There are options for garage flooring, but all are definitely not created equal,” explained Brian Falls, a co-owner of PremierGarage of Knoxville, the area’s most experienced garage flooring company. “The decision usually comes down to a choice between an epoxy or polyuera system. A polyurea flooring system, however, presents the most-advanced and durable coating in concrete flooring technology. It’s truly quality you can stand on.”
Additional benefits of using a polyuera system for your garage floor include:
Surface That Withstands Practically Everything
From extreme pressure, heavy impacts, and spills, polyuera is strong and durable. It provides better protection than epoxy against chemicals commonly found in garages, like gasoline, auto fluids, and paint thinner. Its chemistry makes it more flexible and up to 20 times stronger than epoxy flooring. It is also UV resistant and contains no harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Most importantly, unlike epoxy, it can withstand extremely high temperatures, making it resistant to hot tires lifting and peeling the coating.
Makes Your Garage a Safer Place
Used in combination with full coverage of polymer, paint flakes adds safety to your space. The combination creates a slip-resistant surface, reducing the chances of accidents when the floor is wet. The coating is also antibacterial, stain-resistant, and nontoxic.
Fast-Curing and Long-Lasting
This kind of garage floor coating takes only a few hours to harden and one day to be ready for use. Standard epoxy coating systems take three to five days to harden completely. PremierGarage’s polyuera floor coating, which retains it color and finish integrity, has a 10-year warranty.
Spills clean up easily with a paper towel, but an occasional cleaning with just water and a small amount of vinegar will keep the floor looking brand new.
Bottom line, a polyurea garage floor is definitely worth the investment and increases the value of your home. Yes, a garage floor can be both beautiful and strong!
