Looking for a good coating option for your garage or basement floor? According to experts, you should consider getting polyaspartic coating instead of DIY epoxy kits. What makes polyaspartic coating better than other options? Our experts on garage floor coatings weigh in on the matter.
PREPPING IS MORE RELIABLE
While DIY epoxy kits may seem like the cheaper option, it requires you to handle floor preparations on your own. This not only takes time, but can be easily messed up by amateur mistakes. A poorly-prepped floor would make the epoxy coating go to waste. You’re better off hiring pros to handle the prep phase.
APPLICATION IS EASIER
Polyaspartic coating is fairly easy to install on your garage floor because it is less sensitive to temperatures as it sets. Compare this to epoxy which can’t be properly applied when it’s too hot or too cold. Furthermore, polyaspartic coating requires only one or two coatings, compared to garage floor epoxy which might take five or more layers.
POLYASPARTIC COATING IS TOUGHER
It only takes a couple of polyaspartic coatings to protect the garage floor, but the thinner coating doesn’t mean that it isn’t durable compared to epoxy coating In fact, experts say that polyaspartic coating is a more durable option.
IT IS SAFER TO INSTALL
Epoxy floor coating tends to release chemicals into the air after it is applied. These fumes can cause respiratory irritations and even pose a serious health hazard. Polyaspartic coating has very little, if any chemical emissions so it’s one of the safest garage floor finishes that you can use, especially if you have children at home.
