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.
