Polished concrete floors have become increasingly common in many residential garages. Apart from their sleek, minimalist look, they are also incredibly durable. While they offer plenty of benefits, other homeowners turn to alternatives when it comes to flooring solutions. Polyaspartic coatings are one of them. Guardian Garage Tampa, your local garage flooring solutions provider, discusses more below.
Qualities Of Polyaspartic Coatings
A distant cousin of polyurethane finishes, polyaspartic floor coatings have many features that make them as versatile as polished concrete. They offer protection, beauty and longevity regardless of where they are installed. Beyond their unique color schemes, these coatings can imitate the look of other flooring materials like wood or marble but without the intense need for maintenance.
The Alternative’s Advantage
Polished concrete floors undergo a grinding and polishing process that involves the use of chemical treatments to achieve a seamless, high-gloss and clean finish. However, improper installation exposes them to water damage that leads to mold and mildew growth. Also, broken, old and overly cracked concrete is impossible to polish.
Polyaspartic coatings on garage floors, meanwhile, involve quick application methods such as dip-and-roll and ribbon-and-roll. They can be used as a top coating over concrete and epoxy coatings, adhering to the surface better with less likelihood of bubbling. They can also be used as a complete flooring system, with fewer or no volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
One of the coatings’ notable advantages is their faster installation times, which equate to lower labor costs. In fact, after application, the flooring can be ready for foot traffic in an hour or two. This makes them a perfect solution for industrial and commercial applications, as well.
