Polyurea & Polyaspartic

The Superiority of Hybrid Garage Floor Coating Systems with a Moisture-Mitigating Barrier Over One Day Coating Systems

In the realm of garage floor coatings, hybrid concrete coating systems that use a moisture-mitigating epoxy primer and polyurea-polyaspartic top coats emerge as the only choice for homeowners seeking durability, aesthetics…and most importantly, long-term performance. While “One Day” polyaspartic and polyurea coatings offer expedited curing times (with the promise of 1 day installs), they come with significant drawbacks, particularly concerning moisture-related issues.

Prioritizing Moisture Protection

“One Day” polyaspartic and polyurea coatings boast rapid curing times, making them enticing options for those seeking swift completion of their garage floor projects. However, these coatings often fall short in addressing moisture-related concerns within concrete substrates. When directly applied to concrete, polyaspartic and polyurea coatings lack the ability to deeply penetrate the concrete substrate. Consequently, any underlying moisture in the concrete may become trapped beneath the coating, leading to adhesion failures, bubbling, and delamination over time—common culprits behind coating failures.

Here are some photos of delaminated 1-day polyurea-polyaspartic floors. Notice how the thin polyurea layer can be peeled back with only your fingers!

Poor Quality Coatings Come with Poor Warranties

These issues compromise the coating’s durability and longevity, resulting in homeowners facing costly repairs and maintenance down the line. Furthermore (and conveniently), most “1-day” warranties fail to cover moisture-related problems, leaving homeowners susceptible to the risks associated with these coating systems. Without adequate protection against moisture, the warranties offered by competitors fail to instill the confidence homeowners need to invest in their garage floors confidently.

Quality Concrete Coatings with a Real Warranty

At Garage Floor Coating of Nashville, we recognize the significance of addressing moisture-related issues to ensure the longevity and performance of your garage floor coating. Hence, we adopt a comprehensive approach that commences with our 100%-solids moisture vapor barrier (…we’ll never apply a polyurea-polyaspartic as our primer coat direct-to-concrete!).

Our moisture vapor barrier penetrates deep into the concrete substrate, establishing a protective shield that prevents moisture from rising to the surface and causing damage to the coating. This ensures superior adhesion and unparalleled durability, even in environments with elevated moisture levels.

Dual Polyaspartic Topcoats

In addition to our moisture vapor barrier, we apply two separate layers of our 100%-solids clear topcoat…a high-quality polyaspartic polyurea hybrid blend. This topcoat delivers unmatched protection against wear and tear, UV rays, and chemical spills, ensuring that your garage floor maintains its pristine appearance and exceptional performance for years to come.
