Garages aren’t just used for storage anymore. Today, garages have become craft spaces, workshops, even “man caves.” With homeowners using their garages for so many different reasons, it makes sense to protect and beautify your garage floor.
Garage floor coatings are a decorative and durable way to improve the look of your garage and protect the concrete from stains and other damage. At Premier Concrete Coatings of Columbus, OH, we specialize in applying garage floor epoxy coatings and other garage floor coatings in a variety of textures and designs. We have options to suit every budget and garage use.
Choosing Garage Floor Coatings for Your Garage Floor
When you choose a garage floor epoxy coating, your priority is durability. Whether you use your garage for storage, work projects, or recreation, you want the floor to stand up to moderate impacts without chipping and breaking, as well as resisting stains and other damage.
At Premier Concrete Coatings, our coating options include:
We also use our flooring solutions in commercial settings, from automobile showrooms to restaurants and commercial kitchens, and even in firehouses.
Garage Concrete Epoxy
Epoxy floor coatings last for a long time. With a durable, high-gloss surface, garage concrete epoxy does not yellow and is impervious to mold and mildew. It also resists the damaging effects of hot tires, road salts, and vehicle fluids like motor oil.
Our options for garage floor epoxy coatings include:
- Epoxy Tile – With protective color flakes, this durable style is ideal for an automotive garage.
- Metallic Marble – Durable and decorative, it’s the perfect way to show off your vehicles.
- Epoxy Flakes – Perfect for home garages, it is easy to clean and has industrial-level strength.
Epoxy floor coatings bond well on a concrete floor and, if applied thickly, are highly impact resistant.
Polyurea Floor Coatings
Polyurea, a kind of polyurethane, is often used for truck bed liners and pipe coating in addition to garage flooring. With polyurea flooring, a resin mixes with a catalyst. The resulting chemical reaction causes the material to harden, thus protecting the floor.
Polyurea is highly flexible and can endure extreme temperature changes. It is also resistant to scratches, chemical damage, and stains. Polyurea is also 100% UV stable so that it won’t yellow over time.
Advantages of Garage Epoxy Floor Coatings and Polyurea Floor Coatings
Epoxy and polyurea floor coatings are resistant to a range of liquids and chemicals that cause stains. Motor oil, antifreeze, brake fluid, and many cleansers and solvents can destroy an unprotected concrete floor, but with an epoxy or polyurea floor coating, you can easily clean up these substances.
Resistant to Damage
Scratches, cracks, and other visible damage are reduced or eliminated with garage epoxy and polyurea floor coatings. They are also designed to withstand the effects of vehicle pressure and weight over the long term.
Epoxy and polyurea floor coatings improve the safety of your garage because they create a non-slip surface.
Garage floor coating systems are available in several colors, and we can add vinyl flakes for additional aesthetic appeal.
Garage Floor Epoxy Coating Installation
Premier Concrete Coatings puts the highest quality service and skill into every garage floor coating system we install from start to finish. Every installation begins with an evaluation. We get to know your needs as our customers and help you select the best floor coating to serve your needs.
Once you choose the right product for you, we begin the installation process by preparing the surface. The concrete floor gets a thorough cleaning to get all the dust and debris off. Then we grind down the floor, creating a new, smooth surface ready to accept the new coating.
Once the floor is clean and ground, we fill in any cracks in the floor. We also check to ensure that the floor is level so that the epoxy or polyurea lays evenly when applied.
Next, we apply the basecoat. Like paint, the basecoat primes the surface, filling any minute pores and cracks to create a smooth surface ready to apply the epoxy and polyurea coatings with color and flakes. After the basecoat is down, we cast the color flakes and allow the basecoat to cure.
Once everything cures, we scrape and vacuum the floor to ensure the floor is seamless and flat. Both epoxy and polyurea flooring cure quickly, though polyurea cures faster, even with multiple layers.
Finally, we apply the clear coat finish, which helps to protect the new floor coating. The clear coat also creates a seal on the floor that helps keep out moisture and stains and gives it that high-gloss shine.

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. Premier 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?
Unfortunately, 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. If you have stamped concrete that has faded, please contact us for options in reviving it.
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 pressure washing the concrete (depending on the location of the project) and in some cases we do both! Most 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, mopping or steaming.
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, patios, or even driveways 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!
