Polyaspartic vs. Epoxy

When most homeowners consider upgrading to the standard concrete garage floor that came with their home, they consider polyaspartic and epoxy floor options. These are two popular options for garage flooring due to their durability and resistance to stains and chemicals.

However, polyaspartic coatings offer several advantages over epoxy coatings, including superior resistance to stains and chemicals. They also have excellent UV stability and won’t yellow over time, making them a better long-term investment. While polyaspartic coatings may be slightly more expensive and take longer to install than epoxy coatings, their benefits make them a worthwhile investment in the long run. In fact, our detailed, two-day polyaspartic process is what sets our product apart from others on the market.

Why Car Enthusiasts/Collectors Choose Polyaspartic Garage Flooring

If you are a car enthusiast or collector looking to create your dream garage, you’ll appreciate a polyaspartic garage floor because it provides a high-quality, professional look to your garage space. A polyaspartic coating is a durable, glossy surface that provides a clean, polished finish to the garage floor. This can help showcase your cars and make the garage look like a high-end showroom.
