Dual Floor Coating Project: Pecan Chip Flake for Basement and Patio
A recent project in Warrenton, VA, involved a comprehensive floor coating job for both a residential basement and a back patio. The homeowner chose a ‘Pecan’ chip flake color, imparting a warm and elegant finish to these spaces. The task entailed applying a durable polyurea coating to the concrete floors of both the basement and the back patio, enhancing their durability and aesthetic appeal.
The condition of the concrete in both areas was generally good, showing standard signs of wear and a few minor cracks. Our team skillfully repaired these cracks, ensuring a smooth and even surface as a foundation for the coating. The concrete was also polished meticulously, preparing it thoroughly for the polyurea application. This preparation was crucial for a uniform coating that would endure over time.
The project culminated in another satisfied customer in Warrenton, VA. The transformation of both the basement and back patio floors was completed efficiently, leaving the homeowner with beautifully coated surfaces that not only look great but are also built to last.

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.
