Polyurea Floor Coatings – Perfect Product for Outdoor Environments
We’ve said it before – our Polyurea Floor Coatings provide top-notch performance for outdoor living spaces. We don’t just mean outdoor patios where you’ll spend some time sitting on furniture and relaxing. No – we mean outdoor “living” spaces where you enjoy activities such as cooking, swimming, playing and working. Our Polyurea floor coatings adhere to concrete surfaces to protect and enhance the things that you do everyday.
No longer do you have to worry about the spilled chicken grease. Where you once had to scrub, pray and use oil removing products – you can now cook outdoors stress free. Whether it’s spilled food or drinks, scrapes, drops or abrasions – our Polyurea floor coatings let’s you live life. You don’t need to fear about making your concrete floors look worse. No sir! Our floor coatings can easily be cleaned up while always looking beautiful and providing superior protection and slip resistance in outdoor living environments.
UV Protection – For Superior Color Retention
Not only do our floors hold up tough to food & foot traffic – they also outperform other floor coatings in terms of UV protection. All colorful materials are subject to fading due to UV exposure. The sun has the tendency to fade the pigmentation of materials over time. Fading and discoloration is a problem that all floor coating products have to combat. Luckily our Polyurea Floor Coatings have an added layer of protection due to our Polyurea Top Coat.
Installed on all of our job sites, this Polyurea Top Coat is used to seal and protect our Vinyl Chip Flakes (the material that provides our color). Regardless of which color you select for your floor coating system, it will be protected by our Polyurea Top Coat. We install this top-coat layer on all of our coating applications and it’s one of the secrete ingredients that allows us to provide our superior warranty policy.
Backed by our superior 15-year residential or 5-year commercial warranty policies, our floors are guaranteed to provide exceptional characteristics, including:
Easy, One-Day Installation (for most jobs – depending on size of job site)
This job site started out just like any other. A concrete porch that spanned the outdoor kitchen and surrounding patio space. Concrete is a standard builder-grade surface that most home owners receive when they purchase a new home. In fact, it’s the most common surface that we see out in the field. It’s also exact reason we got into this business in the first place. We felt that there were thousands of clients who could benefit from a superior concrete coating system to protect their homes and families!
As you can see from our images, by applying our 1 Day Coatings products, this outdoor kitchen has turned into a stunning outdoor living space. This home is now protected by our Polyurea Floor System and this space now looks complete and all around gorgeous.
Selecting the Pecan Color, our client picked the perfect tones to blend into their adjacent stone walls. These two color schemes compliment each other to make this space flow naturally without any odd color patterns. This is an ideal project for our portfolio and a perfect example of just how beautiful our Polyurea Floor System can look when paired with a matching color option. This is truly a remarkable job site installed by Brandon and Coe and one that we are grateful to have installed for our fabulous client!

Our mission at 1 Day Coatings is to protect your home and family while enhancing your lifestyle! Our floors are meant to help you live your life to the fullest. We take the worry out of caring for concrete floors while enhancing the safety for your family due to slip-resistant and smooth surface. We bet you’ll love our floor coatings just as much as we do so we invite you to get in touch with us so we can provide your more information today!
We’re not sure if we like the floors more or the sports cars! When we envision a garage full of beautiful automobiles, it only makes sense to us that the garage looks just as attractive and professional as the garage you see here! For a car advocate, one thing is certain: attention to detail and cleanliness are critical! It’s safe to say that this home owner feels good tucking his automobile babies in at night upon this newly installed Black and Red Polyurea floor coating!
We were giddy when we received this phone call! The chance to apply our floor coating on a garage that is beautiful is a perfect way to showcase our products. Designed for all types of concrete applications, ranging from garage floors to outdoor patios and even commercial facilities – our Polyurea System is the real deal!
Developed by Penntek Coatings, our Polyurea Floor Coating consists of a Vinyl Chip Flake layer (the pretty colored vinyl chips) plus a Polyurea Top Coat. Together, these two layers (plus the Polyurea Base coat) create a nearly impenetrable barrier between the concrete beneath and the life that happens on top! From housing gorgeous sports cars to a mechanic shop that changes the tires, our Polyurea floor coating system can handle it all! If you’re on the market to look for a floor coating that is as tough as you are – you’ve come to the right place!
No More DIY Epoxy Kits – Use a Product That Actually Works!
Ugh, to say that we’re tired of seeing one home owner after another apply a DIY (do it yourself) Epoxy Kit would be an understatement. These kits overpromise their abilities and have very specific standards for their applications. Oftentimes home owners think they can apply these kits themselves and that the application will work as smoothly as the YouTube video that shows it being installed.
Often the results are far less worthy to be bragged about than the video led you to believe. Often these epoxy kits (once applied) are near impossible to remove without mechanical abrasion and you’re lucky if you can walk away with a floor that looks halfway decent. From etched concrete surfaces from applying muriatic acid (hopefully surrounding areas don’t get damaged) to pock-marked coloring – epoxy kits perform far worse than they are advertised.
Luckily there is a solution to this maddening problem – call 1 Day Coatings to remove the epoxy nightmare and replace it with our professional developed and applied Polyurea floor coating system! Our products are designed by professionals for professional installation. In fact, we are one of a few Penntek Dealers in North Texas and we have been professional trained and certified by this manufacturer to warranty our products after installations.
Our Product Actually Adheres to Concrete
So what’s the hype about our products and why are so many people switching over to it? Well, for starters – our products work by actually adhering to the concrete substrate. Did you catch the part about the muriatic acid etching (above)? That’s right! Epoxy DIY Kits actually require their users to apply muriatic acid (without professional training) to create an etched surface so their products can adhere to that concrete surface. Yikes!
Luckily that’s not the recipe for the success of our products! Instead, we mechanically treat our concrete surfaces with a commercial floor grinder to remove the top layer of concrete and expose a fresh layer – free of dust, oils or contaminates. From there we apply our Polyurea Base Coat and allow the two entities to chemically bond together.
This is all a part of one smooth process and happens rapidly. So fast in fact that we can apply all 3 layers of our products: Base Coat, Vinyl Chip Flakes & Top Coat in just *one day (for average sized residential garages).
*It’s important to note that large residential or commercial applications may require more than one day for installation.
Perfect For Any Type of Garage: Especially Sports Cars!
Oils, tire marks, dropped tools and constant shuffling – a mechanics garage is a busy place! Things are moved, set down, dropped, spilled, brushed and scraped while a mechanical enthusiast works on what he/she loves working on best – the cars and bikes! These venues are places of creation and where ideas take shape and new things are developed. Garages are humming places and often can become areas stained with grease and oils.
In fact, it’s safe to say that our Polyurea floors were designed for the humming of a mechanics work shop! Our floors keep your garage protected, beautiful and clean. They enhance your lifestyle while working in your mechanical tapestry and allow you to worry less while learning and achieving more! Doesn’t that sound like the type of floor that you want for your home?
We enjoy challenges and this job site was certainly a challenge! This customer contacted us to apply our Polyurea Concrete Coatings on specific areas of their pool deck. They wanted to use our products to create an “edge” to their swimming pool and to provide comfort / durability to their outdoor living space.
Staying true to their reputation – Brandon and Coe did a fantastic job with this detailed installation! They spent the time necessary measuring exact distances around this swimming pool, prepping the job site, installing the product and insuring the job site stayed clean throughout the whole process.
Now our client is left with a stunning pool deck that looks beautiful and is much tougher than the stained concrete that preceded it!
Fiberglass Swimming Pool with Cantilever Concrete Coping
For those who have a detailed eye for swimming pools, this particular swimming pool is a fiberglass pool with a cantilever deck. Fiberglass pools are single body pools constructed out of fiberglass and installed by excavating and setting the swimming pool – in one fell swoop. Often times fiberglass pool builders will install a concrete pool deck all the way around their swimming pools.
Being in the concrete renovation business, this is the perfect material for us to apply our Polyurea Concrete Floor Coating on! Our Vinyl Chip System(developed by Penntek Coatings) requires a concrete base for installation. That’s because our Polyurea Base coat adheres only to concrete surfaces. That being said, we needed to prep this job site for our products to properly adhere to the surface and ensure a proper installation.
Because this pool deck is a concrete cantilever, we had one single surface to work with. Our client had a specific request for our installation method on this job site. They requested for Brandon and Coe to create a “Coping” finish around the swimming pool. In essence, they wanted a nearly 2′ radius of our product installed all the way around their swimming pool. In order to achieve this, Brandon and Coe needed to accurately measure their chalk lines around the edge of the swimming pool and spend time focusing on the details.
Prepping The Job Site for our Installation
In order for Brandon and Coe to make this installation look neat and tidy, they needed to do the proper amount of prep work. Since this was a swimming pool deck, keeping the water clean and clear is essential. To achieve this, Brandon and Coe installed a polymil liner over the surface of the water and adhered the polymil material to the edge of the swimming pool with painters tape.
Additionally, they collected measurements in equal increments around the pool edge. This insured that our diligent crew created a pool coping that run parallel to the pool with equal distance on all sides.
Measure Twice – Apply Once: Keeping Our Eyes on the Details
Our teams work in groups of 2 or 3 so that we can properly prep, install and clean up our job sites. This delivers the highest level of customer service, speed and accuracy so that our clients are left with a beautiful Polyurea floor system in a short amount of time!
In other words, we install our Polyurea Vinyl Chip System so that our floors can enhance your lifestyle and beauty of your home or work space. Our crews are detail oriented and we pride ourselves on our edge work, stamped floors and custom colors!
Cantilever Coping & The Outdoor Living Space
Alas, Brandon and Coe blew us away again and did a fantastic job on their finished product at this job site! Their detailed work on the pool edge created a fantastic design that leads the viewer to believe the coping is made of some other material than concrete. By installing our product along this pool edge, it creates a stunning design and enhances the safetyand durability of this swimming pool deck.
Our Polyurea Conrete Coatings are able to hold up tough against all types of abuse, including:
Abrasions and Impact
Did we also mention that our surface is 100% Anti-microbial and 100% Anti-bacterial? Additionally, when wet Polyurea floor coatings provide a higher coefficient of friction than wet concrete. This means that our Polyurea material won’t be as slippery as concrete and creates a safer environment for you and your loved ones to walk one. That’s a huge benefit to our client who now has their surface closest to the water covered with our superior Polyurea floor coating!
Essentially, our Polyurea surfaces are tough, beautiful and provide a much safer environment than standard concrete.
Selecting a Custom Color
Additionally, our client selected a Custom Color: Smoke with 10% Primary Blue. Creating custom colors like this is part of what we do at 1 Day Coatings. We have a wide array of Vinyl Chip Flakes to choose from and being our client means that you can mix and match your colors to create a pattern that you love.
Whether it be your favorite color, business logo, school colors or favorite sports team – we can create a color that is 100% custom and matches your pride or hobby!

If you’re a home owner, you’ve likely been been in this scenario. You have a beautifully decorated space: one that you’ve decorated, invested time and money into. Yet, despite your efforts – you still have that one area that drives you nuts. Maybe it’s a wall that needs to be removed, some cracks in the floors, or an ugly concrete surface.
Many of our clients are home owners who take pride in their spaces. They want their house to be a “home” and desire each space to be beautiful, functional and relaxing. So why would your concrete surface be any different? After all, the flooring (whether it be indoor or outdoor) contains the largest surface area of your home. It’s also the area that your guests walk upon and see more than any room or outdoor space.
Knowing that our floor surfaces are the most visible and certainly the most used area of the home – wouldn’t you want it to look beautiful and be protected for a long time? We certainly think so and that’s why we passionately inform our clients that we have a product they’ll love!
A Company Based on Kingdom Concepts
1 Day Coatings first started with a dream of helping our clients resurface old areas of their home. We believe that making old things new is a biblical, Kingdom concept. After all, didn’t Jesus make all of us new when he washed our sins away so we could connect with the Father?
If you own an outdoor living space such as a swimming pool, outdoor kitchen or sitting area – you’re familiar with dirt, dust and debris. These areas of our homes provide excellent spaces for entertainment, but they also take a lot of abuse from its exterior environment and human interaction.
From swimming pool chemicals to grilling grease, drink spills, impact from toys, the playing of animals and moving furniture – our outdoor spaces take a lot of abuse! Long story short, it’s often the busyness of life that wears down our outdoor spaces – requiring a resurface to restore it’s original beauty.
The Different Types of Pool Decks: How We Compare
Since our inception, we’ve seen all types of exterior concrete surfaces. From epoxy coatings, pebble deck, salt rock finish, broom finish, kool deck and much more – these surfaces are good for the short term but don’t compare to our premium finish! What’s the key difference? Well, for starters our product consists of polyurea – a material that is much stronger and way more flexible!
In addition, our floors provide greater slip resistance due to their “orange peel-like” texture. This is a huge benefit for owners of swimming pools due to the added safety for users of all ages!
In addition, our polyurea floor coatings are highly customizable. We provide a common list of pre-assorted colors on our website, but there are literally thousands of color combinations you can create. This is a fun and attraction benefit of our product! If you have a college, high school, church, business or any space that you want to represent your sports team or organization – we can bring that space to life!
We’re Great with Detailed Projects!
As you can see from the images of this project – when resurfacing concrete pool decks there is a lot of details to consider. From the pool coping, to changes in elevation, steps and crack repairs – we have a lot of concrete to patch up and treat. It’s projects like this that we love because they showcase the skill set of our team!
1 Day Coatings prides itself on restoring all types of concrete surfaces regardless of the age or current condition. In fact, it’s often the ugliest spaces or most complex layouts that provide the most stunning results!

Do you enjoy entering groups of people in your own backyard? There is a huge trend in America towards creating exceptional outdoor living spaces. Rather than investing inside the home, people prefer to use their hard earned dollars to create comfortable:
Among the most popular of these choices is the rise of outdoor kitchens. Since the turn of the new millennium, there have been some brilliant advances in the quality, construction & materials available to create outdoor cooking areas. Direct cooking has now evolved into indirect, convection, infrared, charcoal, gas, wood pellets, smoking & much more. In fact, there are so many different ways to cook meats that you’re immediately flooded with options the moment you decide to take on the project!
But what about your outdoor surfaces: such as flooring & counter tops? Have you put any thought into the types of materials you want your family to spend their hours, days & weeks walking on and using while outside? Is it important to you that your floors are safe, slip resistant, UV & fade resistant, withstands abrasions, impacts & spills?
If you answered YES to any of the above questions, it’s time for you to take a look at our 1 Day Coatings product line. Our team of experts is able to help you create the perfect outdoor living space with our quality Vinyl Chip Flake system. From new construction to resurfacing concrete floors & counter tops, our product is the top of the line and provides you with all of the safety measures listed above.
Remove The Old Epoxy & Applying 1 Day Coatings
Take this outdoor remodel for example. This client contracted 1 Day Coatings to restore their outdoor living space. By removing their old surface materials, i.e.: Basic concrete deck / patio (located near the above ground space) & Stained & sealed concrete counter tops – we were able to create a stunning outdoor living space!
Instead of leaving these materials the same, they decided that our Vinyl Chip Flake system was exactly what they were looking for. Our dedicated team of experts was able to install our product in just one day.
Our process is simple yet involved. It required us to grind away the existing to layer of stained & sealed concrete (of the counter tops) and to apply our 1 Day Coatings product.
Custom Color – Slip, Slip & Abrasion Resistant
This client opted in for a custom color arrangement (which closely resembled the Mediterranean color – seen on our Color Options page). With a natural blend of grey, tan, brown & cream – this custom color is soothing & very neutral. In fact, many of our clients often choose neutral color patterns for their floors & counter tops due to the freedom it allows for the rest of our their outdoor decor.
By sticking with a neutral color pattern – it’s easy to them incorporate many other neutral materials & products. From outdoor furniture, to rugs, accessories such as clocks, lamps, tables & more – sticking with neutrals helps the entire space blend together in a professional looking manner.
Lastly, it’s important to reiterate that our floors provide a superbly high level safety & longevity. Our floors & counter tops provide slip resistant materials (which improves the safety from rain, pool water or sprinklers) to our durable abrasions resistant material. 1 Day Coatings keeps your family safe for hours of outdoor fun & entertainment.

Our 1 Day Coatings product line is, in our professional opinion (slightly biased), the best industrial floor coating product on the market. We can install our products in just one day and provide our clients with both a 5-year Commercial & 15-year Residential warranty.
On the flip side, there are many products that you can purchase “over the counter” at places like Lowes & Home Depot. Many of these “off brands” will give you an installation guide which makes the buyer feel empowered and capable of doing it themselves.
Unfortunately, most home owners quickly discover that applying floor coatings by themselves is harder than it appears. Problems often arise within a time period of a few months to a few years. Flaking, Chipping or De-laminating are the most common issues that we see in the field.
Manufacturers of these off-brand products do not provide their clients with a warranty. They can hind behind the mask of “not professionally installed.” This leaves the home owner holding the bill – with wasted product and a surface that is difficult to remove. It’s a frustrating circumstance and one that we see too often in our industry.
Removing an Old & Chipping Kool Deck Coating
This week, our teams removed a Chipping Kool Deck system from a back patio / pool deck. This home owner contacted us after they began to experience the same issues listed above. It’s applied correctly, Kool Deck is a wonderful product that provides many benefits to clients. For starters, it helps to cool the patio surface – which in Texas is a very nice benefit!
However, like all products, if they are not installed correctly (or if the product naturally starts to fail) they no longer become viable. Our client contacted us and requested for us to remove this Kool Deck system and install our 1 Day Coatings product instead. We were happy to fulfill this request and completed the project in just one day!
As you can see from the image above, our products provide a nice, smooth finish. Clients often refer to our system having an “orange-peel” like texture to it. It’s softer surface and higher surface traction creates a perfect surface for our clients to walk on barefoot. Our 1 Day Coatings product is extremely comfortable to walk on and provides long lasting benefits to our clients. Backed by a 15-year residential warranty, it’s hard not to see how our products are more comfortable, stronger and a better all around choice!
We’ve Got The Tools: Commercial Floor Grinders
Removing a Kool Deck system (or any other system for that matter) requires some elbow grease and the right hardware. Because Kool Deck and other systems are applied with an epoxy bond coat, they have to be mechanically removed. We’ve invested some serious capital into industrial floor grinders so we can remove all types of durable surfaces.
Trust us, we see these types of floor coatings all the time! In fact, we are used to removing stubborn epoxy floor coatings and have done it on dozens of occasions. You might say that removing low quality floor coatings and replacing them with our high quality industrial floor coating is a specialty of ours!
So, first things first – we utilize our commercial floor grinder to evenly remove the existing floor coating. We grind the floors evenly until we get down to a fresh layer of concrete – which is what our polyurea basecoat adheres to.
After the floor is ground down to a fresh layer of concrete we then look for defects and begin the repair process. Utilizing our CR Mender Repair System, we can fill and repair a wide array of cracks, pits and joints. Our CR Mender helps to create a smooth surface for our products to adhere to. It’s also the perfect time for us to repair your concrete and spot treat areas where failures may appear.
Thirdly, once we’ve repaired the concrete with the CR Mender, we can then clean the surface and apply our Polyurea Basecoat. This polyurea basecoat is highly durable and adheres to the fresh concrete – creating a solid bond coat. From here we distribute our Vinyl Chip Flakes and seal our finished product with our Polyurea Top Coat.
We Can Install on All Types of Surfaces
Our 1 Day Coatings product is brilliant because it can be installed on a wide array of surfaces. From pool deck coatings (such as this) to industrial floors and commercial kitchens – we’ve done it all! In fact, our clients love our products so much because it enhances their ability to enjoy their lives without worrying about their floors.
We provide our clients with an industrial floor coatings that won’t chip, peel or flake due to any of the following criteria:
Scrapes or Scratches
Overall, it is a very simple product in regards to technicality, but it requires attention to detail and familiarity with installation. We’ve installed literally hundreds of Vinyl Chip Systems and have created some amazing results! For a portfolio of our work – check out both our Blog & Photo Gallery. Here you can see for yourself how we’ve made the difference in our clients homes, offices and commercial settings!
