Adding a polyurea garage floor coating.

A vehicle's appearance is just as important as its performance, especially for those who need to show off the latest addition to their garage. Your garage floor is where your truck or SUV is shown off to the world, especially to potential buyers. If you want to improve the look of your garage floor, you might want to consider polyurea garage coatings. They're a great way to give your vehicle a well-maintained appearance that matches its performance.

What is a Polyurea Garage Floor Coating?

Penntek Industrial Coatings are manufactured in the USA to the highest quality standards. They consist of a special polyurethane formulation designed to protect industrial applications. Penntek Industrial Coatings are applied using brushes and rollers to create a smooth surface that is easy to clean. They are more economical than other coatings and can be used on multiple surfaces, such as concrete, block brick, and metal.

A Penntek concrete coating can be used in various areas of your garage, including those exposed to sunlight. A professional installer will start by using a spray gun to apply the coating evenly. After that, they will push the remaining coating into small cracks and crevices using a roller. Once that is finished, they'll use squeegees to remove any remaining liquid from the surface of your floor.

Let’s will discuss some advantages of installing a polyurea garage floor coating, especially when it comes to holding up your off-road vehicles.

Advantages of Installing a Polyurea Garage Floor Coating

1. Durability

Polyurea coatings can easily be used on various concrete surfaces, both indoors and outside. These coatings will not fade, crack, or peel off for years. If you're worried about extreme weather damaging your garage floor, choose polyurea coatings to protect it from whatever mother nature throws its way. The combination of polyurea solids and polyethylene creates a tough and durable solution, resisting various chemicals, including motor oil, transmission fluid, and cleaning agents. Polyurea flooring also resists oxidation and UV rays, so you won't have to worry about fading, cracking, or peeling from excessive sunshine. These coatings are resistant to rust, corrosion, and stains from food, drink, and other substances.

2. Enjoy Showroom Quality from Your Garage

Polyurea coatings come in virtually any color and pattern you like. This customization provides a professional-looking garage that rivals any car dealership. It also makes your vehicle look great, whether it's outdoors or indoors. If your primary purpose is displaying these vehicles to potential buyers (or just showing off your prized possessions), you can’t go wrong with a polyurea coating for cars. They can be customized to match the exact theme of your garage, and can even create special effects when applied in specific patterns. Clearcoat can be applied over the top of the polyurea coatings for extra protection – this will prevent scratching and scuffing while also creating a shiny, sleek look that you can't get with other types of protective coatings.

3. Ease of Maintenance

A bare garage floor can quickly become filthy with dirt and grime from your truck or SUV. Fortunately, a polyurea floor coating is easy to keep clean. These coatings are designed for ease of maintenance. When cleaning, it's best to use a plastic scraper and a wax-free towel or sponge to dry the polyurea.

4. Long Warranty

The service provider will provide a warranty that protects the life of your polyurea coating. You are covered for five years from the time of installation (15 years for residential Penntek projects). The warranty covers damage caused by age, sunlight, and other environmental factors. You don't have to worry about it peeling or falling off after a few years or from age and wear and tear. Ask your service provider about the terms and conditions of their warranty and any special instructions to ensure you're covered.

5. Environmentally Friendly

These coatings are highly sustainable. They are applied using a water-based solution and made from biodegradable materials. The coating is 100% solvent-free, which means you won’t have to worry about VOCs (volatile organic compounds) or harmful fumes. They are also easy to apply and can be dried within hours of application. Penntek polyurea coatings dry to the touch in just 20 minutes and can be walked on in as little as 6 hours. These coatings can be safely removed with a standard solvent cleaner, too, without difficulty or damage to the underlying concrete surface.
