At Revival Concrete Coatings, we get calls all the time from customers asking for an estimate for a garage epoxy coating. Most of them have seen a photo of a completed garage coating on our Facebook, or have seen us beautifying their neighbor’s oil stained garage floor. People assume that we’re installing epoxy garage coatings, but we do not, and will not install epoxy coatings. HOWEVER, we have a product that is aesthetically identical to Epoxy, but in addition is waterproof, stain/scratch resistant, UV resistant, is 4x stronger than Epoxy, and comes with a 15 YEAR WARRANTY! Read below to see why our polyurea concrete coating system is better than an epoxy coating.
Epoxy Garage Coatings
Epoxy coatings are marketed as durable, long lasting and vibrant, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Epoxy floor colors fade drastically over time, especially when regularly exposed to sunlight. This is bad news for the apron of your garage floor that is exposed to the sun constantly. Epoxy coatings also lack flexibility causing them to require frequent repairs and maintenance due to abrasions and their inability to flex with the freezing temperatures of Iowa. Lastly, epoxy coatings are susceptible to blisters and bubbles, which can make your floor coating unsightly and weaker over the long haul.
Polyurea Garage Coatings
Polyurea coatings are beautiful, waterproof and impact-resistant. Unlike epoxy, they are extremely flexible, enabling them to withstand both extreme hot and cold temperatures without cracking or peeling. The color of your polyurea coating won’t fade even if it’s exposed to direct sunlight, and the material is more than 4 times stronger than epoxy. Polyurea coatings also cure fast, taking only a day for the process to finish.
If there’s one issue with polyurea garage coatings, it’s that they cure extremely fast. This is why it’s best to call on an expert to install your garage floor coating. The manufacturer certified professionals at Revival Concrete Coatings will know how to handle polyurea coatings properly, ensuring you get the results you’re looking for.
