You might end up asking yourself this question as you consider what to do about your garage this year. The short anwer is: yes, they are worth it, but only if you go with coatings that will stand the test of time, serve your aesthetic needs, and pay off in the long run. Whether you use your garage primarily for housing vehicles and tools, working and crafting, or kicking back and relaxing, the best garage floor coating can enhance your experience significantly. At Anderson Painting, we specialize in the installation of Penntek polyurea concrete coatings, which we argue are the best coatings for virtually all applications.

Here we’ll discuss why we stick with Penntek coatings and why our customers thank us for doing so.

Best Garage Floor Coating Options

What Is Better than Epoxy for Garage Floors?

When looking into different options for garage floor coatings, epoxy tends to be the most commonly recommended material. While epoxy coatings have their advantages, however, they’re not the only choice out there, nor are they inherently the best one. Penntek coatings use epoxy for certain flooring systems, but Penntek also implements polyurea to create even more durable flooring systems. The addition of polyurea brings traditional epoxy floor coatings to the next level, which is why we prefer Penntek’s various solutions over alternatives.

Why Penntek Floor Coatings Are Superior

So, what makes Penntek polyurea floor coatings better than standard epoxy, anyway? For starters, polyurea is more flexible than epoxy, allowing floors to breathe a bit easier as temperatures fluctuate and the ground underneath shifts around. Polyurea coatings also offer more protection than epoxy against moisture, chemicals, impact, abrasion, heat, and sunlight. These aren’t the only benefits that make Penntek polyurea coatings the best garage floor coverings available, however. In addition to their superior durability and flexibility, Penntek polyurea coatings are quick to install and cure – when administered by professionals like Anderson Painting, Penntek garage floor coatings can be installed in a single day and ready to use directly after. Traditional epoxy coatings, on the other hand, can take several days (if not weeks) to install and completely cure. If you’re looking for a more efficient solution for your garage flooring needs, then Penntek is the way to go.

How Much Do Penntek Coatings Cost?

All of the advantages outlined above don’t come for free, of course. Indeed, polyurea coatings are more expensive than epoxy coatings overall. That said, it’s important to consider more than the initial price of materials and installation. After all, installing a garage floor coating is a long-term investment. As such, you must keep the long-term costs and benefits in mind, too. When properly installed and maintained, Penntek polyurea floor coatings can endure for 15 years or longer before requiring major repairs or restoration projects – compare this with epoxy coatings that often need resurfacing within 2-5 years. So, while it will cost more to install Penntek polyurea coatings up front compared to traditional epoxy, you’ll end up saving significantly in the long run.

When it’s time to restore or upgrade your garage flooring, Penntek offers the best solutions in more ways than one.
