    If you're looking to add a little style and color to your garage, one of the best places to start is with the floor. Standard concrete slab garage floors are functional. But with a little extra effort they can also be attractive and even comfortable. There are many options for sprucing up a garage floor, and most homeowners have trouble deciding which way to go. An effective way to start thinking about a new garage floor is to divide the choices into two categories: coatings and coverings. There are five good options to consider.

    • Polyurea

      Polyurea is a similar material to epoxy and polyaspartic. It is a combination of synthetic resin and isocyanate-reactive materials. Polyurea is considered a subtype of polyurethane and creates a durable seal to coat garage floors. It's a flexible, synthetic material and some types of polyurea are UV resistant which prevents them from yellowing over time.

    • Polyaspartic

      By definition, a polyaspartic polymer is an aliphatic polyurea because it is the reaction of an aliphatic polyisocyanate with an aliphatic diamine – the polyaspartic ester”. Yikes! A simpler explanation is that a polyaspartic is a polyurea with a slowed-down cure rate. The slowed cure rate allows trained applicators to apply polyaspartics in a more traditional (less hurried) manner.

    • Epoxy

      Epoxy is an actual thermosetting resin that is applied as a coating. It is formed when you mix one part epoxide resin with one part polyamine hardener. The hardener acts as a catalyst and is what gives epoxy its strength. Unlike paint that has to dry, epoxy actually cures. When the two parts are mixed, a chemical reaction is started, which creates an exothermic curing process. This curing process produces polymer structures that are closely cross-linked, giving epoxy its superior strength and durability. The end result is a coating that is much thicker than paint and bonds tenaciously to a properly prepared surface.

    • Polyurethane

      Like epoxy, polyurethane is a thermosetting polymer and considered a high performance coating. It is commonly known as urethane for short, though that it is technically incorrect. There is actually a big difference between polyurethane and urethane. If someone is advertising a urethane coating, it is actually polyurethane. Of the different formulations available, aliphatic polyurethane is the desired choice for garage floors. Though they are approximately 60% to 70% solids depending on the manufacturer, a polyurethane coating is only about 2 to 3 mils in thickness. It can’t be applied any thicker in one application as some epoxy coatings can.

    • Acrylic

      Acrylic garage floor paint features a higher acrylic resin content than latex paint. It offers a measure of suppleness, which is well suited in a garage that lacks climate control. As the concrete floor expands and contracts with temperature fluctuations, acrylic paint is less likely than latex paint to crack and chip. Acrylic paint can cost up to twice as much per gallon as latex paint, but it’s more durable. It’s also less likely to fade in sunlight, so colors stay brighter and more accurate. Both latex and acrylic concrete paint apply easily.

    Hiday Motors needed to build a brand new 28,000 sf facility that would both meet our needs and comply with GMs standards—which seemed daunting, to say the least. Buildify alleviated all of our concerns and communicated with us every step of the way. We have received dozens of compliments from our customers, and our employees love the new store!
