Why Protecting Your Garage Floor Concrete is Important
A garage is no longer just a place to park your car. For many, it’s an extended living space. Homeowners now are demanding clean and functional garages and it all starts with the concrete floor. Unfortunately, the garage floor can easily be damaged and quickly worn down if not properly protected.
Bare, unprotected concrete floors will:
- Cause surface to breakdown and scale
- Easily absorb chemicals and oils that create stains and odors
- Always seems to create dust that tracks into the home
Why a Coating System is The Best Option
Protecting your concrete garage floor is a must if you want it to last and look good. Tiles or paint wont last and mats are ugly and difficult to clean. The best option is installing a durable and beautify epoxy and polyaspartic coating system.
Unlike the do-it-yourself epoxy systems you find at the store, our commercial-grade system will last and look amazing for a lifetime.

Our Professional Installation Process
Below is our standard process but may vary depending on the needs of the customer and conditional of the floor.
Step 1: Prep
Professional prep is the key to a long lasting floor. We diamond grind the surface to get the ideal profile needed for maximum bonding. We then repair all deep cracks and holes with a fast setting polymer.
Step 2: Base Coat
The technicians now carefully apply the industrial strength high solids base coat which will penetrate deep into the slab creating a permanent bond.
Step 3: Flake
Flakes are now installed and bonded to base coat creating another layer of protection, texture to reduce slips and a beautiful look.
Step 4: Top Coat
A super tough polyaspartic top coat is finally applied for the ultimate protection and stunning deep shine. Also anti-slip additives are added at this point to create a slip resistant surface.

Concrete Coatings FAQ's
How is a Polyurea / Polyaspartic coating different than Epoxy?
- Polyaspartic is 4 times stronger than epoxy making it scratch and chemical resistant.
- Polyaspartic will not fade or yellow with sunlight exposure. This is a big one since most garages are exposed to sunlight, especially the apron.
- Polyaspartic is more flexible than epoxy which reduces the chance of cracks and chipping if the concrete experiences any movement – which it typically will in cold weather climates.
- Polyaspartic cures very fast (a few hours vs. a few days with epoxy) allowing customers to get back into their garage faster.
How long is the floor coating installation process?
Most garage floor coating installations only take 1-2 days depending on the size and condition of the concrete.
Are coatings slippery when wet?
All coatings will prevent water from seeping into the concrete which means the surface will stay wet longer and with all wets surfaces caution must be used to prevent slipping. Concrete Hero will typically add anti-slip additives to the surface to provide traction.
What makes your coating materials different than the kits sold at stores?
Common question and the answer is simple: quality. The kits sold at stores like Home Depot are consumer grade products that are designed to meet certain price points. To keep the price down a low solids materiel is used which means the floor will be much thinner than a professional product. You get what you pay for.
I coated my floor once and it pealed, what makes your process better?
The most critical part of the process is the prep and this is where most DIY floor projects come short. It is extremely important the concrete is properly prepped to expose the pores. If the pores our not open then the material will not penetrate into the slab and wont adhere. Overtime this will cause it to peel.
This requires a heavy and expensive floor grinder or shot blaster which most homeowners don’t have. A professional coatings company will have $15K – $25k invested in grinding and dust control equipment on the job to make sure your concrete is prepped right.
Can your coating system be used on exterior concrete and basement floors too?
Absolutely! Since its uv stable, it can be used on all outside surfaces such as patios, porches and steps.
