  • Patios
  • Walkways
  • Driveways

Durable Finishes

One of the biggest draws for floor coatings is their durability. When installed correctly floor coatings will last a lifetime. the surface can handle high pressure from heavy furniture, vehicles, and structural elements of the property. Once installed, there is little maintenance to do other than keeping the surfaces clean via power washing or moping.

Low Maintenance

Floors treated with Epoxy or Polyurea are very easy to clean and in most cases will just need to be hosed off. For less regular detail cleans, using a mop or deck brush will easily break free and dirt or mold growing on the surfaces.

Proper Installation is Critical

Epoxy and Polyurea floors can fail if installed improperly. Prep work is critical to curing and adherence to concrete. If the floor is not properly prepped, which sometimes may involve sanding down the floor in advance, the coatings can fail and start to peel up or crack. This is why it is generally recommended to hire a professional floor coatings team if you are considering this type of work for your home.

Non slip options

Multiple options are available for slip resistant floor coatings. Chips / flakes can be used to create a rough non-slip texture, or the epoxy can be perforated to give the surface grip and greatly reduce the slipperiness of the surface when wet.
