The Benefits of Polyurea
The revolutionary coating material known as Polyurea is the choice material for protecting and even beautifying basement and garage floors. Chemicals that we use every day are most often responsible for damage to garage floors. Gasoline and diesel, oil, resins, salt, and even certain compounds used in construction can eat through the original coating on the floor. When there is no coating on the floor, these chemicals can damage the concrete and cause staining and odor problems not to mention they leave a residue that we don’t want the kids to play in or around.
When compared to other materials such as epoxy you’ll find that is it a much stronger and resilient floor coating material that will protect against damage from a multitude of harmful chemicals. Since Polyurea is also highly resistant to damage problems like cracking, peeling, and curling the protection it offers is long term and sound.
One of the common difficulties that homeowners face when coating their garage and basement floors is finding a material that allows the concrete to move naturally. While it’s not obvious to the human eye, gentle shifts in the concrete are normal as the ground underneath the floor moves. Since Polyurea is a flexible coating option you won’t find floor damage from restricted movements. The Polyurea coating allows for the most flexibility when compared with other floor coating materials, and retains 98% better overall flexibility than the standard epoxy.
The limited lifetime warranty ensures that the high quality Polyurea will protect and maintain your flooring surfaces as depicted. If you’re unsatisfied with the protection quality simply contact the company.

Polyurea is an environmentally and family friendly coating. In fact, its use is not restricted solely to garage and basement floor coatings. It can be used to coat the floors that receive a lot of hard use and are exposed to damaging influences.

Using the high quality material not only protects the surfaces of the floors but makes them more beautiful.

Protection for Stored Items
Polyurea helps to protect the items that you tend to store in a basement or garage. In many cases garages and basements are used to store some very high value items. Whether it’s a car or boat, furniture, family heirlooms, or appliances like washers and dryers anything that you routinely store in garage can eventually succumb to the potential damage of mold, bacteria, and fungus.
Moisture is a common problem in basements and garages, especially in those that are built into an underground foundation. When moisture is present even the smallest crack in the floor or knick in the concrete will attract growth of moisture sensitive bacteria, mold, and fungus. These harmful contaminants can ultimately destroy the items that you typically store in the garage or basement. The protective Polyurea coating acts as a moisture barrier to prevent and control the growth of these harmful contaminants. Keeping your belongings safer will save you money and prevent the heartache of losing items that are simply irreplaceable.
