Garage Floor Coatings: Protection Against Wear and Tear

Garage Floor Coatings: Protection Against Wear and Tear

Share This Post

Why consider polyurea and polyaspartic garage floor coatings? Our clients cite several reasons, but the most common include that the coatings are beautiful, durable, and long lasting. In this post, Fitzy’s Concrete Coatings explains why installing a polyurea and polyaspartic garage floor coating makes it one of the best garage flooring options in the Greater Albany area.

What Are Polyurea and Polyaspartic Garage Floor Coatings?

Polyurea, a type of polyurethane, provides a distinct improvement on the old epoxy formulations. Stronger, more durable, and highly resistant to abrasion, polyurea took the flooring world by storm.

Polyaspartic represents the newest evolution in the floor coating industry. Tougher and more UV resistant than any of its predecessors, polyaspartic remains the best top coat on the market today.

We combine the two because polyaspartic, by itself, would be cost prohibitive. We use polyurea and polyaspartic garage floor coatings to give you the benefits of both without breaking the bank.

The Benefits of a Polyurea Base and Polyaspartic Top Coat

Why choose these floor coatings for your garage? You should consider these reasons for installing polyurea and polyaspartic garage floor coatings.

UV Resistant

Do you have windows in your garage? Traditional epoxy tends to fade and discolor in such circumstances. However, polyurea and polyaspartic garage floor coatings contain UV protectants, meaning they do not have this vulnerability.

Install Year-Round

Epoxy has another significant downside in that it requires relatively warm temperatures for it to cure. With the latest polyurea and polyaspartic coatings, this no longer becomes an issue as the product has a far wider temperature range. We can install these practically year-round.

What’s more, the installation process is quick. We install the average garage floor in a single day, and you can walk on it within a few hours. You can move your car back in within 24 to 48 hours.

Hot Tire Pickup

Hot tire pickup refers to an issue that frustrates many property owners. It occurs when you pull into the garage after driving for a while. The hot rubber tires cool; as they do so, they contract, lifting epoxy. Polyaspartic proves far less vulnerable to this phenomenon.

Keeps the Floor Pristine

No matter how hard you try, it is challenging to keep your garage floor clean. Thanks to the porous nature of concrete, you have barely any time to clean up spills before they stain.

Polyurea and polyaspartic garage floor coatings make it easy to keep the floor clean because they create an impermeable seal. Moisture, chemicals, and even tough-to-remove substances like oil easily wipe off the surface.

Resists Salts and Acids

During winter, the salt and acids on the street can play havoc with a bare concrete floor. The chemicals result in ugly spalling and pitting that is difficult to repair. Our coatings resist salt and acid and prevent them from damaging the underlying concrete.

Prolongs the Concrete’s Lifespan

Your concrete is susceptible to many other forces. Every time you drive your car over it, it weakens the surface. It also becomes vulnerable to temperature changes and moisture damage. By sealing the surface, you can prolong the concrete’s lifespan.

The coating absorbs shocks and also enhances the concrete’s strength. It can also hold together concrete that is in less-than-perfect shape, staving off replacement for longer.


Would you like a marble or polished concrete look without the expense? Why not get creative and create a more exotic look with the striking blues and gold of lapis lazuli. If your budget doesn’t stretch that far, choose a simple solid color instead. 

Speak to our team about creating the right custom look for your space. We can use a range of additives and flakes to create a unique look. As we hand cast everything, no two floors we create look exactly alike.

Makes the Floor Look Like New

Does your concrete floor look grubby already? Speak to us before you refinish it. We can create an opaque coating or flake flooring that will cover the stains and make the floor look brand new again.

As long as the concrete is in reasonable shape, we can work our magic. We fill in minor chips and cracks as part of the preparation process, so speak to our team even if the floor can use some work.

High Return on Investment

These floors seem more costly than other options upfront. However, if you consider that they will last 12 years or longer, they offer a high return on your investment. Polyaspartic coatings bond to the floor thermostatically, meaning they won’t lift, crack, or peel during their useful lifespan.

Easy To Clean and Maintain

Floor paint and conventional sealants make cheap and easy options but require reapplication every couple of years. Rubber mats or metal flooring fares better but becomes grubby very quickly.

Polyaspartic requires little more than water to keep it clean in most cases. Maintenance typically entails keeping it free of grit and dust. In the event that you do scratch the surface, you can easily buff out the mark with the right polish. If you make a deeper mark, you can fix it by using a patch kit.
