Garage Floor Epoxy vs. Polyurea Garage Floor Coatings

In comparison to epoxy, polyurea garage floor coatings are the better choice for a number of reasons. Benefits of polyurea as a garage floor coating include:

Polyurea Garage Floor Coating Benefits

An epoxy coating may be the cheaper option upfront but will require more regular maintenance and replacement as it breaks down from heavy use. Additional ways that Webfoot's multi-layered polyurea system compares to common epoxy include:

  • UV-Stability - Our concrete coatings are great both indoor and outdoor. They will not shrink, crack or chip if they are exposed to sunlight or extreme temperature changes
  • Durable and Strong- These coatings are four times stronger than epoxy and resistant to drops from tools and chemicals. They are also UV stable, so they're great for both indoor and outdoor applications. Our polyurea coatings won’t chip, fade or peel like epoxy.
  • Slip-Resistant - Our coatings do great when applied to garage floors or pool decks. This is because they are slip-resistant, even when wet!
  • Great-Looking - You have an array of options that are only limited by your imagination. We create custom concrete flooring with you in mind. If you own a business, have a favorite sports team, or want to ensure that your flooring perfectly matches your decor, we can make it happen.
  • Quick Application - We can coat your concrete surfaces in less than 24 hours. Even better, you will be back to enjoying your space in as little as 12 hours!
  • Guaranteed - We stand behind our products. We guarantee that your concrete coatings will be the best investment you’ve ever made, and we believe it so much that we warranty your coating for a lifetime.
