Arlington VA Garage Enhanced with 'Pebble Beach' Polyurea Coating
In Arlington, VA, we recently completed a residential garage concrete coating project that has brought a new level of elegance and durability to the client’s garage. The client chose a ‘pebble beach’ chip flake color for the coating, a choice that perfectly blends with the garage’s aesthetic, providing a subtle yet sophisticated look. We used polyurea for the coating, due to its renowned strength and longevity. The garage’s concrete floor was in decent condition, with the usual signs of weathering and some very tiny cracks. Our team efficiently repaired these cracks and polished the concrete, ensuring the surface was in prime condition for the coating. This meticulous preparation was essential for a flawless and long-lasting finish. The project resulted in another satisfied customer in Arlington, VA, who now enjoys a beautifully coated, rejuvenated garage floor.
Arlington VA Garage Upgrade: 'Tidal Wave' Polyurea Coating for Modern Curb Appeal
At a residence in Arlington, VA, we undertook a project to coat a garage concrete floor, significantly enhancing its functionality and style. The homeowner chose the vibrant ‘tidal wave’ chip flake color, introducing a lively and modern element to the garage’s environment. For the coating, we opted for polyurea, valued for its durability and ability to withstand regular use. The garage floor was in a generally good state, with expected wear and a few small cracks. Our team effectively addressed these cracks and conducted a thorough polishing of the concrete, preparing it meticulously for the coating. This preparation was key to ensuring a smooth, high-quality finish. The completion of this project marked another satisfied customer in Arlington, VA, who now enjoys a robust, stylishly coated garage floor.
Polyurea vs Epoxy
Although epoxy offers initial cost savings, polyurea is better choice in terms of overall performance and long-term cost-effectiveness, owing to its durability and lower maintenance requirements. The decision between epoxy and polyurea ultimately hinges on your needs. Go with polyurea if want a long-lasting, durable coating with minimal upkeep. Alternatively, if you’re pursuing a shorter-term solution or operating on a tighter budget – epoxy might suit your needs. For those with the requisite skills and time, a DIY approach could also be considered.
Typically, the cost of materials and labor varies, averaging around $6.50 per square foot for larger areas like 900 square feet, and going up to $9.00 per square foot for smaller spaces of around 300 square feet.
Frequently Asked Questions
Polyurea and epoxy are both used for coating concrete, but they’re quite different. Polyurea is stronger and lasts longer, about 15 years, compared to epoxy’s 3-5 years. It bonds deeply with concrete, making it less likely to chip or peel. Epoxy, while protective, just sits on the surface and can wear out faster, especially with heat and sunlight. When applying polyurea, the surface needs more preparation, but this makes it more durable. In simple terms, polyurea is like a stronger, longer-lasting protective layer for your concrete surfaces. Learn more about the difference between polyurea and epoxy.
It is always a good idea to consult your HOA regarding rules about painting or installing coatings in outdoor areas visible from the outside. Typically, this would only apply to driveway and sidewalk coatings. We advise you to check with your HOA, review their documentation, and see whether there is any mention of concrete coatings. If there isn’t, you should be clear to have your coating installed.
Epoxy and some other polyurea coatings can only be installed during warmer months of the year. But, our polyurea coating can be installed year-round even in winter, and still only takes a day for installation.
