Epoxy Vs. Our Polyurea 1-Day Concrete Floor Coatings

Epoxy Vs. Our Polyurea 1-Day Concrete Floor Coatings

Mar 28, 2019

You’ve probably seen polyurea floor coatings popping up on social media. What’s the big deal with these 1-Day floor coatings? Epoxy has been around for quite a while and is a staple on many people’s cement floors.

So, is epoxy good enough, or is it worth taking the leap and upgrading to a 1-Day polyurea cement floor coating?

Epoxy struggles to 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!

Plus, our 1-Day floor coatings are extremely flexible. They will not crack or peel as the temperature fluctuates.


Safety first!

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. This means that you should steer clear of epoxy around pools, patios, and other moisture-prone areas.

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 pools, patios and even steps.

Cleaning is a snap

Did you know that polyurea works with moisture, instead of resisting it? The result is that it bonds to cement surfaces better. Plus, it stands up to:

  • Chemicals
  • Water/moisture
  • Gasoline
  • Cleaning agents
  • Hot car tires

At the end of the day, cleaning our 1-Day floor coatings is a snap! No mess, no stress. Simply wipe the surface clean after a spill, without worrying about staining your floor.

Is our 1-Day concrete floor coating worth the extra cost?

When compared side by side, epoxy floor coatings 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.

On the other hand, our 1-Day floor coatings are backed by a 15 year product guarantee, and a lifetime guarantee. 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.

Today we had Josh and his crew install a beautiful concrete coating on our garage floor.
They were on-time, polite, meticulous and extremely professional. Josh met and walked with us through the project area explaining the coating process and answering all our last minute questions. Then they went to work, and worked diligently all day. The result is gorgeous!
They cleaned up after themselves-leaving nothing behind except a perfect finished product and smiles on our faces.

Next we are having them paint the garage walls-I'll post photos when it's done!
(Jennifer, Stephanie and Kimberly were also wonderful in the planning process. They worked to accommodate our time restraints and budget needs to get this project off the ground-with estimating, proposals and scheduling. Thank you ladies!)

Our home just got painted and we're very pleased with the quality of the work. Thanks to Andrei, Julian, Jeff and Robert. They were all real pros and did an excellent job. They were always on-time, and more importantly we communicated well throughout the job to ensure we got what we wanted. We've never had painting done before, and were impressed with their attention to detail. Were sun and weather beat up our original paint the most, they made sure to apply extra coats. Great work!

We just had the exterior of our home in Riverbank painted by Lancaster Painting. The process from stat to finish was a very professional experience. The office staff that worked in creating the bid and walking us through the process was very professional. The painting crew, led by Kurt, did an outstanding job. There were very professional in dealing with my family. They were extremely knowledgeable about the painting process and thoroughly answered all of our questions. And they were punctual and complete the job ahead of schedule. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering having their house painted.

I recently used Lancaster to paint my two story house. I could not have been more pleased! I had Toby as an estimator, Sergio was the foreman and his crew Jaciel and Donald were fantastic. Their attention to details was excellent. I had shutters installed and they did a great job painting and installing them. They were on time and very professional. At the end of each day they would clean up, which was great.

Lancaster take pride of their work, now I understand why they have a high rating. I would definitely recommend them!

The crew from Lancaster recently completed interior painting at my home and I could not be happier with their work. The project leader, Raul, was friendly, professional and super helpful. The price was reasonable for the amount of work done. I was astonished on how well the house was prepped, how quickly the work was completed, and how clean the crew left my house. It is clear to me how they received top reviews from my family who had exterior work done by Lancaster in the past. Amazing job, thank you for the excellent customer service and the beautiful, fresh walls!

This is my second review. I had lancaster back to paint my ceilings, master bedroom and living room. The painters were very professional and accommodating while they were in my home for 2 days. They moved furniture as needed and even vacuumed up before they left! They have a warranty program for 2 years :)

Thank you so much for making my home feel new again!

Lancaster painting is the go-to paint company! They do excellent quality work and are more than friendly and accommodating to your needs. We recently had our kitchen cabinets repainted and they turned out better than we imagined. Our project leader assured us on everything, and they even finished when they said they would. QUALITY YOU CAN SEE! Kim the receptionist is a sweetheart, our consultant was extremely knowledgeable and very well versed on how to convey our needs in terms we understood. Most of all or painter Ashoor was awesome. Super friendly, excellent painter, made sure our brand new home stayed in new condition while he painted, and even made sure an extra touch ups we saw or he saw were taken care of immediately. He didn't leave our home until he knew his work was completed to our and his quality standards. Would HIGHLY recommend this company if you need any painting done, especially cabinets.

Pictures below are before and after. Before was brown, after is Swiss coffee white and restorative blue.

Lancaster just finished repainting the exterior of our business. The price was very reasonable and the employees are all top notch. Our building is a historical building and we had it painted the same colors to maintain its history. The results from Lancaster were perfection!
