When choosing what type of flooring your garage will have for your business or home there are many factors to consider before selecting. 

  • Durability
  • Level of Maintenance
  • Safety
  • Color Options

Well the good news is that polyurea garage floor coatings offer all of that and more! From sleek finishings to safety measures that matter, it is the best flooring choice across the board.

What is Polyurea?

Polyurea is a waterproof coating often used for industrial and commercial applications to protect any surface from water damage. It is applied as a liquid and quickly cures to form a strong, water repellent seal. 

This product is used on more than just garage surfaces. It is trusted to be used on roofs, foundations, pool decks, and more. 

Polyurea is actually a synthetic polymer. It is created when a coating agent similar to polyurethane is mixed with a reactive compound. However, it differs in that it produces a “urea,” which is a naturally occurring molecule.

This combination results in a molecular structure that makes it waterproof and durable.

Advantages of Polyurea

We’ve already gone over a few of the ways Polyurea will serve as a great coating option for garage floors. Let’s look at some of the other reasons a little more in depth.

UV Resistant

You will not need to worry about the sun’s rays damaging or discoloring your polyurea floors over the life of the floor. Polyurea floors are UV resistant after they cure.

This is one of the reasons why polyurea coatings are used in many outdoor projects like decks and pools.

Moisture Resistant

Moisture will get into any crevice it can and not all flooring is free of that fact. Concrete, for example, naturally has pores and cracks where stray liquid can get stuck and lead to decay. A properly cured polyurea coating fixes that issue. 

Once the mixture cures on the surface, it provides a barrier that is impenetrable by moisture from water to oils.

Chemical Resistant

Speaking of oils, one of the reasons polyurea is a popular option for garages is because of how it stands up to chemicals. More specifically, it resists staining better than uncoated concrete or other types of coatings.

Polyurea holds up to stainable liquids as part of its hydrophobic nature. It holds up to:

  • Motor Oil
  • Grease
  • Bleach

Your coating will ensure an easier clean up with no worries about unsightly stains ruining your floor’s pristine look. 

Quick Installation

Probably the most asked question is, “how long does it take to set?” Good news: it works pretty quickly!

Unlike other materials like epoxy, polyurea takes just a few hours to set. That means you could be ready to use your garage again the same day it was set. If you need a floor coating quickly, polyurea will be your best option.

Durable

We’ve talked a little about the durability of polyurea. It is naturally elastic and flexible meaning it will adapt and mold with pressure. 

This means it will last you for years, as well. No need to worry about having to fix or apply a new coat. Polyurea floors can last for decades. 

Low Maintenance

Because of its durability, polyurea garage floors are virtually maintenance-free.

It works the way you would want all of your floors to work. Dust and debris can be swept up with ease. Spills can be hosed off without fear of damaging the floor beneath. The low maintenance required is the reason it is a popular choice for homes and businesses.

Uses of Polyurea

Now that you know more about why people choose polyurea as their best option for their garage floor coating project, it’s time to look at the uses for it.

Waterproofing

As discussed, installing a polyurea coating waterproofs your surfaces. Keeping unwanted liquids away your floors or projects makes it the best choice for:

  • Industrial Garages
  • Pools
  • Outside Patios
  • Roofs

It provides the best protection from any water-related issues your surface may face for years to come.

Concrete Protection

Polyurea provides a protective layer over your concrete. This ensures that your concrete is free from stains or cracks due to natural elements. 

It also makes the concrete stronger as the polyurea fills in the pores and natural cracks of the concrete. This makes it stronger and provides a more level surface to use.

Aesthetic Appeal

Last, but not least, you want your floors to not only be functional but look nice too! Polyurea coatings have a wide range of options in terms of color and finishes like:

  • Matte Finish
  • Gloss Finish
  • Pre-tinted Finishes

With aesthetic options and the benefits of a polyurea floor, many would find it difficult to find a better option for their garage floor coating.
