Polyaspartic vs. Epoxy | What’s the Difference?
Epoxy coatings cause reactions between bisphenol A and epichlorohydrin to bond with concrete floors. A standard installation of epoxy systems involves applying a primer, a color base coat, and a top coat double layer of polyurethane. Epoxy resin is the common choice when homeowners are looking for low-cost flooring.
However, standard epoxy products do not offer the strength nor quality to last in an Ohio garage. It may be customizable and cheap, but you will run into way more issues and defects than with polyaspartic coatings. Specifically, epoxy coatings can become very slippery when wet, which is certainly a negative in wet or snowy weather. Epoxy coatings do not respond well to UV rays, so they can fade and yellow very quickly if exposed for long periods of time in direct sunlight. Epoxy coatings can trap moisture between the coating and the concrete subfloor which can quickly cause mildew and other problems.
The installation of epoxy can also be much more complex than the installation of polyaspartic flooring. Unlike the two-step curing process of polyaspartic coatings, epoxy flooring requires a long prep time and a long drying time between coats. This can mean that even though the materials part of an epoxy garage floor cost could be less expensive than polyaspartic, the number of workers and the time required quickly makes the whole project more expensive on the whole.
Polyaspartic floor coatings offer exceptional protection against impacts and many other forms of wear and tear. This flooring solution creates chemical reactions between aliphatic polyisocyanate and a polyaspartic ester. As a result, they form aliphatic polyurea, which allows for easier customization and lower levels of emissions. In comparing polyaspartic vs epoxy, polyaspartic performs better in UV rays and wet weather. It is easier to maintain (a simple mop and bucket will do the trick), and it will last longer assuming the subfloor has been prepared properly.
Many Ohio homeowners choose to personalize their polyaspartic coatings with colors and patterns of decorative flakes or through other additives with anti-slip properties. So, you can get creative with polyaspartic flooring. Polyaspartic coatings also offer more flexibility than epoxy flooring. As a result, they can offer more impact resistance and protect the underlying concrete.

Polyaspartic Floor Coating Cost vs. Epoxy Floor Cost
Getting clear estimates for garage floor coating costs can be tricky if you are trying to do pricing comparisons just via online searches. You encounter many promises online. For example, if you have been looking for companies to install new garage flooring coating, you have likely encountered many businesses that claim they can install epoxy flooring in 24 hours. These quick installations seem convenient initially. Unfortunately, 24-hour installations are unnecessary and imprecise, while costing significantly more per square foot. Companies may also promise low costs per square foot, but these “bargain deals” are often accompanied by very fine print. Some companies require you to use their maintenance services and materials or you will lose your warranty, and many companies unfortunately simply do not do a good job of incorporating all expenses into their initial quotes.
Standard epoxy materials are also significantly less resistant than polyaspartic coatings. This will cause your garage floor to form various unsightly defects shortly after installation. This means you will have to spend more than you initially planned on costly repairs and maintenance.
OGI polyaspartic garage floor coatings offer the highest value and the highest quality flooring services in Ohio. With OGI, you can avoid these defects with high-strength polyaspartic garage floor coatings and a thorough, professional, two-day installation.
