Slow Dry Time

Epoxy coating on concrete floors takes a long time to cure.  As epoxy cures, it also shrinks and becomes less thick.  Many homeowners have to wait several days or even weeks before their garage can be used, which can be an inconvenience.


One of the first issues many homeowners experience with epoxy floor coatings is the material’s tendency to peel up. The bond between the coating and the concrete weakens over time, especially with hot car tires. Epoxy garage floor coatings are also inclined to bubble, especially when exposed to temperature fluctuations. In northern climates where garages are poorly insulated, and go from hot or to cold frequently, the epoxy coating deteriorates requiring immediate repair.

Poor UV Resistance

When exposed to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays, epoxy garage coatings tend yellow over time. In garages with windows, direct sunlight on the epoxy coating can result in fading, yellowing, and blotchiness in spots.


Polyasparatic Floor Coating

Thankfully, polyasparatic floor coatings offer many advantages over epoxy.

  • Fast Curing Times. Unlike epoxy coatings, polyaspartic coatings can dry in a matter of hours after application. Most homeowners are able to re-occupy their garages the next day.
  • Highly Durable. Polyaspartic coatings are tough and resistant to delamination and issues caused by temperature variations. They keep their original color and appearance indefinitely.
  • Choosing polyaspartic concrete floor coatings gives homeowners the freedom to create a personalized and visually pleasing floor. A wide variety of colors and stunning finishes make every space unique and exciting.
