Frequently asked questions about our Concrete Coating System

Q: What's the difference between our polyurea concrete floor coating and the DIY epoxy garage kits at the big box stores?

A: First off, the epoxy kits don't come with a 500 pound planetary concrete grinder hooked to commercial HEPA vacuums. This concrete grinder has 9 diamond heads that abrade the surface to ensure our product has permanent adhesion.

Second, the epoxy kits do not come with a patching compound that fills chipped, cracked and spalled concrete. Our concrete patching compound mends surface damage to a strength harder than the concrete.
Third, the epoxy kits come with a small baggy of the colored chips that are lightly sprinkled across the garage. Our chips come in 40 lb boxes that are cast over the entire floor until they are piled on top of each other. The excess chips get reclaimed and a gorgeous mosaic landscape is left. The color options are endless, so let your mind go wild! The density of the chips also creates a texture that hides minor imperfections and gives the floor slip resistance.

Forth, many epoxy kits do not come with a clear top coat. Our Polyaspartic clear top coat is the armor of the floor coating system. It gives the floor scratch, chemical and stain resistance. It is also non-porous, so it gives the floor an incredible shine that is easy to clean and anti-microbial.
Fifth, epoxy is not UV stable and yellows over time. Our Polyurea is UV stable, so it will not yellow over time and can be applied outside as well.

Sixth, the epoxy kits come with no real warranty or customer support. Once your hot tires park on the surface and peels the coating, you are stuck with an unsightly floor. Our product has a 15 year residential warranty from peeling and chipping. Commercial floors have a 5 year warranty.

Q: Can this floor coating go onto any concrete floor, or just garage floors?

A: It can be applied on about any concrete floor imaginable. It is very common to apply this coating in garages, shops, patios, walk ways, basements, laundry rooms, mud rooms, dog kennels, driveways, restaurant floors and other commercial floors.

Q: How long does the process take from start to finish?

A: Most garage floors can be completed in a single day. Once the top coat has been applied, all items can be moved back onto the floor 24 hrs. later.

Q: Can this be installed at any time of the year?

A: Yes, our Polyurea can cure down to -20 degrees F.

Q: Is this floor slick once the concrete coating is on, particularly when wet?

A: The texture of the flake gives the floor some slip resistance, but if more slip resistance is desired, varying levels of polymer sand can be added into the top coat.

Q: What does your polyurea concrete floor coating warranty cover?

A: It covers free spot repair for any peeling coating on a concrete surface that we were able to effectively grind. Our mender fills cracks, but cannot prevent cracks from continuing to grow or move. If cracks come through the coating after installation, it is because the concrete beneath is cracking. If this happens, we can come back to refill the crack, but it is not covered under our warranty and there may be a service charge. General use will dull the clear coat over the years. This is considered normal wear and tear. If a brand new shine is desired, we can apply another clear coat at an additional charge. Any damage due to excessive wear and tear not typical for the area would not be included. Any chipped areas will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. If the concrete itself has been chipped in that area, then the warranty doesn't apply.
