The garage is one of the most important rooms for any property. Whether it is a place where you store vehicles and other equipment or a multi-purpose room with weights, a ping pong table, and more, the garage gets a lot done for us. For that reason, it’s important to keep your garage in great shape while protecting your property investment with garage floor polyurea coatings.

For years, the team at Cardinal Concrete Coatings has been improving residential and commercial properties with our high-quality flooring services. With our 6-step installation process, we specialize and take great pride in garage floor coatings. In this article, we’ll outline the basics of concrete coatings and why they’re important to preserving your garage floor—and property.

What Is a Polyurea Garage Floor Coating?

A polyurea garage floor coating is a specific kind of concrete coating that’s designed to cure faster and last longer than traditional coatings. Unlike epoxy, for example, polyurea has more flexibility and durability. So, polyurea doesn’t crack as easily and stays intact for much longer. It’s easily applied over an existing concrete surface where it can then cure (or, dry) in 1 day and have a polyaspartic topcoat applied. This is the polyurea coating system.

Why Do You Need a Polyurea Coating for Your Garage?

While it’s ideal to have a coating for any concrete surface (such as your pool deck or outdoor patio), it’s even more beneficial for the garage because of all that the garage endures. Think about it. The garage has vehicles rolling in and out, footsteps trodding about, heavy equipment shuffling around, chemical spills, car oil leaks, and more. If your surface isn’t equipped to handle all of that, then it’ll quickly stain, chip, and crumble.

After all, concrete itself is porous, which means that dirt and liquids can enter the surface and harm it from the inside. Plus, over time, concrete falls apart under the weight of consistent use. A polyurea garage coating revitalizes the concrete’s strength while sealing off the top with a shield against dirt, debris, water, and more. So, the surface is entirely protected against abrasions, stains, and more for years on end.

Why Install a Garage Floor Coating?

You can ask any Cardinal Concrete Coatings customer or someone who’s had a coating professionally installed, and they’ll share the same sentiment: a garage floor coating is more than worth it! Here’s a look at just some of the benefits that come with our polyurea garage floor coatings.

Low Maintenance

You work hard enough to keep your property in good shape. Take one more thing off your plate with a polyurea coating. Our coatings actively fight against dirt and debris build-up, so sweeping every week will help your garage floor stay shiny. Whereas with other flooring options, you have to consistently sweep and scrub just to have it look decent.

(And if you’re looking for garage floor maintenance tips, we’ve got you covered there too.)

Better Appearance

Oftentimes the garage can look like a forgotten-about, run-down room. You can drastically change that with a new, high-quality coating. Polyurea coatings have a vivid, uniform look that can instantly improve a room’s aesthetic appeal.


The best part? Polyurea and polyaspartic garage floor coatings are built to last. Other coatings can last between 5 to 10 years, but our coatings can last for decades with the right installation and maintenance. In fact, we offer a 50-year warranty on our surfaces!
