Why Polyurea Provides Best Value for Concrete Coatings Projects

5 Star Rated Company! Get Your Free Quote!

Flooring experts consider polyurea concrete coatings one of the world’s best floor coating products.

The first benefit of a polyurea floor coating is that it is extremely strong, although strong doesn’t even begin to describe it. Polyurea is an incredible 20 times stronger than epoxy. This means that any bump or dent will just bounce off your floor as if it never happened.

However, strength isn’t the only benefit of this floor coating system. In this article, we explore the multiple benefits of polyurea coating systems so that you have a better idea of what they are and if they are something for you.

What Are Polyurea Concrete Coatings?

Polyurea is a new type of coating material that’s been gaining popularity in recent years. It’s also known as polyurethane— a resin used to make polyurea.

Polyurethane consists of two components: resin and isocyanate.

The resin is the solid or liquid component that sets up and hardens, while the isocyanate reacts with it to release gases and foam. The combination of these two components gives you polyurethane foam—or polyurea!

Why Consider Polyurea Concrete Leveling for Your Flooring Surfaces?

Polyurea coatings provide numerous benefits for residential, commercial, and industrial flooring applications. They’re a long-lasting flooring solution for your home or business, famous for their durability and longevity. In fact, polyurea concrete coatings can last up to 15 years!

Some other benefits of this innovative epoxy floor coating include the following:

Highly Aesthetic

Polyurea coatings offer an impressive aesthetic with high gloss and color retention. They come in a wide array of solid colors, so you can easily find one that matches your existing decor. You can also apply epoxy chips into the flooring systems giving you a choice of five to seven attractive blends.

Durable (Moisture, Chemical, and Oi-Resistant)

Polyurea coatings are more durable than other floor coating systems. They are also chemical, water, and oil-resistant. As a result, you won’t have to worry about these damaging elements ruining your floor.


Polyurea coats are not only more resistant to abrasion than epoxy, but they’re also less likely to show surface imperfections like cracks, chips, and scratches.

These smooth epoxy floor finishes are harder than most concrete surfaces. They also aren’t as susceptible to cracks from the expansion or contraction of your flooring surface due to their high tensile strength of up to 4350 psi.


Polyurea concrete coatings are also resistant to harmful UV rays. This makes them ideal for outdoor use and in high-traffic areas, as they won’t fade or crack when exposed to damaging sunlight.

Easy to Maintain

Polyurea concrete leveling coatings are also very easy to maintain compared to flooring systems with waxes or lacquers. The top coat is resistant to moisture and chemicals, making it easy to clean up messes by simply using soap and water.

Fast Application

Polyurea is a fast-setting concrete leveling compound. It’s particularly effective for use on concrete slabs, which tend to have high spots and low spots. It has a fast setting (curing) time of two to five minutes.

Once applied, you must wait for it to dry (usually around 24 hours) before moving back into your home or office space again.

Safe Zero VOC Application

Polyurea concrete coatings contain no solvents or VOCs (volatile organic compounds). This means they’re safe for use in homes and businesses with children or pets.


Polyurea systems are more affordable than other concrete coating techniques like epoxy or polyester. This is because it requires less labor and only one coat of material instead of multiple coats of paint or epoxy.


Finally, you will find that polyaspartic topcoat flooring costs less than other types of concrete coating products. This is because they have fewer moving parts than traditional options and require little maintenance over time once applied to your flooring surfaces.

What are concrete coatings?

Our epoxy floor coatings are a concrete resurfacing option that is installed over existing concrete floors for both interior and exterior concrete. All of our coatings are installed by hand (we do not use any stamps), thus giving our clients a true, one-of-a-kind floor. We install a wide range of flooring systems such as: 100% solid epoxy, concrete stain, acrylic cement, and rubber based products.

Clients have the ability to customize any coating with our various color options and design techniques. Concrete Coatings are used not only in residential, but industrial and recreational settings as well. ConTek Coating uses only the highest quality, industrial products on the market to ensure every customer is getting the best value.

How Much Do Your Concrete Floor Coatings Cost?

Each project is customized to your particular concrete flooring needs. Every job we do is different, because we offer different types of coatings and finishes.  We will work with you to develop a free estimate keeping your budget in mind. 

How Durable Are Your Epoxy Concrete Coating Systems??

We use only industrial products on all of our epoxy floor projects. They are designed to give clients the most value and longevity over any other coating material on the market. Just to give you an idea of how strong our products are, we installed an epoxy flake floor in the garage of a Fire Station in 2008 to protect the firehouse’s garage from dirt, debris, salt, and the extreme work environment. Due to our expertise and industrial coatings, we have yet to receive a repair call. Those same products are used in all of our residential projects.

How long does a typical epoxy flooring project take to complete?

A typical residential project takes approximately 3 – 5 days to complete depending on several variables. Variables include, but are not limited to: size of job, repairs and/or preparation requirements, weather, additional design details, customer requests, etc.

What if I already have an existing concrete coating?

We must grind off any existing coating and repair materials before we can install any of our concrete coatings. This ensures the integrity and longevity of our flooring systems.

How Long Do I Need To Stay Off My Concrete Floor Coating After It Is Installed?

If using 100% solids epoxy, your floor will be cured and walkable in about 12-18 hours. You can return to full heavy traffic after about 24 - 72 hours. Wait for at least 24 hours before moving light weight furniture on your brand new concrete coating flooring. Before moving anything heavy (car, equipment and furniture).

How do you prepare concrete for resurfacing?

We start every project by first preparing the concrete for our products. It is imperative that we have a fresh concrete surface before installing our concrete coatings on your project – this will allow our products to have only the BEST mechanical bond.

We spend approximately 66% of the project prepping your floor which may either be by diamond grinding or shot grinding the concrete (depending on the location of the project) and in some cases we do both! Some contractors will come in and just acid wash or not even prep your floor – we get calls all the time about botched installs with customers asking if we can save their project; we must start fresh every time.

Will I Need To Reseal My Concrete Floor Coating?

If you follow our maintenance and cleaning guidelines, you should not have to worry about resealing the concrete floor coating. We offer a professional grade cleaner that will easily remove stains or tire marks, but will also preserve the life of your concrete coating topcoat.

What If My Concrete Floor Has Cracks, Chips And Is Old?

No worries, we are experts in repairing existing problem areas of concrete. In some cases we have been found to be a cheaper alternative over tearing out and replacing existing slabs of concrete. Once we have saved your concrete we then install our decorative designs to hide the flaws and repairs.

How Do I Care For My Concrete Floor Coating?

You can clean our concrete coatings with typical sweeping or mopping. 

Will Oil Stain My Concrete Floor Coating?

Epoxy floor coatings are extremely resistant to most hazards, including cleaners, gas, oil, transmission fluid, and even most industrial chemicals. Our epoxy concrete coatings system is both oil and moisture resistant.

Who Invented Polyurea Coatings?

Andy Phelan, director of business development and training at Rhino Linings Corporation, explains, “Polyurea was invented in the early 1980s when a less moisture-sensitive form of polyurethane was desired. By replacing the hydroxyl group in the urethane with an amine group, a product we now call polyurea was formed.

What Are Polyurea Concrete Coatings?

Polyurea is useful for concrete floors, as it quickly and strongly bonds to concrete while providing a smooth, virtually impermeable surface that protects the floor from impact, water damage, chemicals, heat, and sunlight.

What Types Of Environments Can Epoxy Floor Coatings Be Used?

Epoxy flooring coatings can be used in a variety of environments.  The durability, slip resistant finish is fantastic for any industrial setting, storefronts or garages.

How Are Epoxy Floor Coatings Applied?

We have perfected a six step process for applying Epoxy Floor Coatings that involves prepping the floor, prime floor with epoxy primer, fill all cracks, holes with epoxy grout, then apply epoxy paint. 

Can I Apply Epoxy Floor Coatings In Cold Temperatures?

You can!  Epoxy can be used at cold temperatures but must be handled and applied with techniques adapted to cold temperatures.

Do I Need To Hire A Professional To Install Epoxy Floor Coating?

Installing Epoxy Floor Coating correctly is critical to the appearance and durability of your flooring.  Hiring a professional is the best way to ensure that your flooring will look amazing and last a lifetime! 

Does My Concrete Floor Coating Come With A Warranty?

We provide a 10 year warranty on your concrete floor coatings against peeling, delamination and wear for as long as you own your home.

"Austin applied a polyaspartic epoxy solid-color coating to our garage. The work -- which included grinding off the old coating and the application of three coats of polyaspartic (primer coat + 2) -- was done meticulously. The new coating looks great and the sand added to the primer coat has eliminated the slippery nature of the old coating. Austin was exceptional to deal with from start to finish. He communicated by phone, e-mail & text...always in a timely and totally professional manner. I highly recommend this company."

"We hired Austin to level our basement floors before we installed vinyl flooring. He was on time, a pleasure to work with, clean, reasonable and our basement floors look amazing. We recommend and we would use his services again. After the floors were completed he was kind enough to drop off a thank you and some delicious coffee for us try. Thank you Austin!"
