September 1, 2023

Polyaspartic floor coating is quick to dry, one of its top-selling points.

Polyaspartic floor coating provides a tough, protective layer renowned for its durability. While primarily used in commercial settings, this floor coating can also be applied in the home. Any areas prone to excessive traffic, such as garage floors and driveways, can benefit from polyaspartic floor coating. Yet, most homeowners are unaware of its unique benefits and uses.

Here are some common questions homeowners have about polyaspartic floor coating:

How long does a polyaspartic floor coating take to cure?

Polyaspartic floor coating is quick to dry, one of its top-selling points. Foot traffic can resume after around two hours. You can enjoy a next-day return to service for vehicular traffic. In contrast, epoxy and polyurethane floor coating can take a few days to cure.

Can you apply polyaspartic floor coating without prepping the surface?

No. Expert floor coating technicians always ensure that the surface is well-prepared. Professionals utilize industrial grinding equipment to scarify the surface. They also get rid of debris by vacuuming the floor. This helps the coating adhere better and improves durability.

What about uneven concrete floors?

If your floors are cracked, uneven, or sunken, repair them first. Homeowners who apply polyaspartic coating on uneven concrete floors risk spending more money in the future for repairs. The concrete damage may spread and cause the coating to crack.

Is a polyaspartic floor coating prone to “hot-tire peels?”

No. Hot-tire peel refers to the peeling of garage floors due to car tires getting too hot, causing the coating to adhere to the tire’s surface. This only occurs for less durable floor coating brands like epoxy.

Are polyaspartic floor coatings expensive?

Polyaspartic floor coating applications can be expensive compared to other options. But they prove their worth over the long term. Other floor coatings are prone to frequent cracking and peeling. Homeowners can find themselves applying a fresh coating every few years. All of which makes polyaspartic floor coating superior.

How is the polyaspartic floor coating applied?

Flooring specialists use the dip and roll or ribbon and roll method when applying this floor coating. However, homeowners can utilize a squeegee or nap roller.

Reap the benefits of a polyaspartic floor coating

Standard flooring can result in homeowners spending hundreds of dollars in maintenance since they are prone to quick wear and tear. Using polyaspartic floor coating guarantees durability, which helps homeowners save on repair costs. They’re also attractive, quick to clean, and can significantly improve a home’s resale value. This can be a DIY project. But if a large area is involved and the homeowner is unsure how to apply the flooring, consultation with floor coating specialists for quality services is recommended.
