Garage Floor Coating Services in Altoona, IA
Your garage floors take a beating. Between heavy cars, foot traffic, and home projects, your garage’s concrete can wear down. Floor coatings can offer a protective layer that revitalizes your garage and prolongs the lifespan of your concrete. Give your garage the treatment it deserves by installing a protective concrete coating that includes polyurea as base coat and polyaspartic as a top coat.
What is a concrete floor coating?
Concrete floor coatings are a layer of sealant that can be applied to concrete floors to provide a high-gloss shine and protecting the concrete beneath.
At Revival Concrete Coatings, we apply a topcoat of polyaspartic coating to every floor job. Polyaspartic coating is stronger and more durable than epoxy, strengthening the floors once cured. Polyaspartic topcoats reinforce and provides a top layer four times more durable than traditional epoxy flooring. Many professionals prefer polyaspartic topcoats over traditional epoxy floors for their high durability, faster cure times, and UV resistance.
Why Professionals Recommend Polyaspartic Top Coats
Flooring professionals recommend polyaspartic top coats because they increase the durability of the finished floors when compared to epoxy alone. There are many benefits to installing a polyaspartic topcoat, making it a preferred choice for most flooring projects.
Polyaspartic coatings are highly durable, four times more durable than traditional epoxy flooring. Polyaspartic topcoats are scratch, stain, and chemical resistant. Protect your floors and prevent further damage by installing a polyaspartic protective coating.
Easy to Clean
Polyaspartic floors are non-porous, making them easy to keep clean and maintain. Polyaspartic coated floors only require sweeping and occasional mopping to maintain their appearance. Because of their non-porous nature, polyaspartic floors are moisture-resistant and a variety of chemical cleaners can be used on them without damage if necessary.
Traditional epoxy floors can take over a week to cure, and exact cure times are weather-dependent. Polyaspartic coatings cure quickly regardless of the temperature and can be walked on the same day or day after installation. Installation only takes a few hours, and curing takes 24 hours or less. You won’t have to wait to use your garage with a polyaspartic topcoat installation.
Low to No VOCs
The release of VOCs, or volatile organic compounds, is a concern some homeowners have when it comes to floor coatings. These compounds are released as fumes from certain chemicals. The good news is that polyaspartic coatings have low to no VOCs, making them a safe option for both humans and pets.
100% UV Resistant
Polyaspartic coatings are 100% UV resistant, meaning they will not yellow or fade with sun exposure. Floors with a polyaspartic topcoat will look just as bright and vibrant as the day they were installed for years to come.
Polyaspartic floor coatings are fully customizable, coming in many colors and textures. Options can include solid colors, textures, patterns, and even metallics and glitter. Create any look you can imagine in your garage with polyaspartic floor coatings.

Our polyurea floor coatings are a concrete resurfacing option that is installed over existing concrete floors for both interior and exterior concrete. All of our coatings are installed by hand (we do not use any stamps), thus giving our clients a true, one-of-a-kind floor. We install a wide range of flooring systems such as: 100% solid color floors, flake floors, and grind and clear floors.
Clients have the ability to customize any coating with our various color options and design techniques. Concrete Coatings are used not only in residential, but industrial and recreational settings as well. Revival Concrete uses only the highest quality, industrial products on the market to ensure every customer is getting the best value.
Each project is customized to your particular concrete flooring needs. Every job we do is different, because we offer different types of coatings and finishes. We will work with you to develop a free estimate keeping your budget in mind.
If using 100% solid polyurea, your floor will be cured and walkable in 12 hours. You can return to full heavy traffic after 24-36 hours depending on the temperature the floor was installed in.
We start every project by first preparing the concrete for our products. It is imperative that we have a fresh concrete surface before installing our concrete coatings on your project – this will allow our products to have only the BEST mechanical bond.
We spend approximately 33% of the project prepping your floor by diamond grinding with our 800 lb Lavina Grinder! Most contractors will come in and just acid wash or not even prep your floor – we get calls all the time about botched installs with customers asking if we can save their project; we must start fresh every time.
If you follow our maintenance and cleaning guidelines, you should not have to worry about resealing the concrete floor coating.
No worries, we are experts in repairing existing problem areas of concrete. In some cases we have been found to be a cheaper alternative over tearing out and replacing existing slabs of concrete. Once we have saved your concrete we then install our decorative designs to hide the flaws and repairs.
Sweeping takes care of most messes. If there is mud or chemicals you can mop them with any household soap and warm water. Dawn or SimpleGreen work great! If chemicals are spilled on the floor, wipe them up as soon as you notice them.
Floor coatings are extremely resistant to most hazards, including cleaners, gas, oil, transmission fluid, and even most industrial chemicals. Although our coatings are chemical resistant, you will still need to wipe up any chemical spills as soon as you notice them.
Polyurea is useful for concrete floors, as it quickly and strongly bonds to concrete while providing a smooth, virtually impermeable surface that protects the floor from impact, water damage, chemicals, heat, and sunlight.
Residential floors come with a 15 year warranty and commercial floors have a 5 year warranty.
Our clients are our most important asset.
This is what they say about us.
