You’ve probably seen polyurea floor coatings popping up lately. What’s the big deal and why is everyone talking about them? Epoxy has been around forever and is the go-to for many people who are in the market for concrete coatings.
So, is epoxy good enough, or is it worth taking the leap and upgrading to a 1-Day polyurea cement floor coating?
Epoxy can’t keep up
Epoxy floor coatings look great when they’re first applied. But unfortunately, they do not hold up under pressure. At some point, your epoxy floor will begin to chip and peel. This could be caused by impact, but is also guaranteed to occur as the floor ages.
On the other hand, our 1-Day floor coatings are made out of polyurea. Polyurea is both waterproof, and impact-resistant. Garages and driveways often have things dropped on them, but your polyurea floors will not chip!
In addition, our 1-Day floor coatings are extremely flexible. When the temperature fluctuates, they will not crack or peel.
Safety is our first concern
One of the safety concerns that comes with epoxy floor coatings is how slippery they become when wet. There is nothing more dangerous than wiping out on cement. Steps, patios and basements suddenly become a hazard.
Slippery floors are also a concern for elderly families. Our 1-Day floor coatings are designed to protect against slips and falls. The surface is slip-resistant, and, because of this, is an excellent choice for garages, patios and steps.
Cleaning is a snap
One of the best features of polyurea is that it works with moisture, instead of resisting it. This means that it creates an excellent bond with cement surfaces. Plus, it does not absorb:
- Cleaning agents
At the end of the day, cleaning our 1-Day floor coatings is a snap! Simply wipe the surface clean after a spill, as your floors will not stain or absorb the substance.
Is our 1-Day concrete floor coating worth the extra cost?
When the initial estimate comes in, epoxy floor coatings will cost less up front. However, that is only a short-term advantage.
Why? Epoxy needs upkeep. Eventually, your epoxy floor coating will chip, peel, and fade. Epoxy floor coatings need to be replaced
On the other hand, our 1-Day floor coatings are backed by a 15 year product guarantee, and a lifetime guarantee. Your floors will never need to be replaced. This gives us an extreme amount of confidence in our flooring service.
Our team not only installs your floor coating, but there is an extensive amount of prep work to ensure that your floors are even, and all of the cracks have been repaired.
At the end of the day, you are saving money by only having to do the job once, with a superior product. Epoxy will not protect your floors for a lifetime, they will fade, chip, and stain. Our floor coatings take just 1 day to install, and will last a lifetime.
