We love big projects! It’s the time for us to show off our work and showcase what we can do as a company! For many of our clients, this is their first time investigating our product line and often times they have a lot of questions. What types of surfaces can your product be installed on? How easy is it to install? How long does it last? How protective is this floor coating? How much does it cost?
At first glance, we understand their questions. Our polyurea floor system is a unique product that very little companies offer. For most of our clients, they have never heard of polyurea floor products and they don’t know all of the benefits that they offer. From its wide protective characteristics to its longevity and wide color variations – our floor coatings can do practically anything we ask them to do. From commercial kitchens, to warehouse & factory settings to school cafeterias or even back patio installations – our polyurea floor system is designed to handle high stress environments down to simple daily living.
So to answer our clients questions simply: our polyurea floor system is designed to protect concrete surfaces with a 15-year residential / 5-year commercial warranty. Yes, we do stand behind our warranties and we offer a wide array of standard or customizable colors to choose from. Additionally, for most residential applications, our products can be installed in as little as one day. This is truly a revolutionary product line with a wide array of applications. Our clients love what we offer them and we’re happy to answer any questions that you may have while browsing our website!
What Are The Steps in our Application Process?
To truly understand our products, it helps a little to understand how they are installed. Our crews did an amazing job capturing the installation of this job site from start to finish to showcase all of the detailed steps of our process.
As you can see from our images, our crews initially start with a “blank slate.” Our products can only be installed on concrete surfaces but first we have to prepare our concrete surfaces for the installation. The image below showcases our technician grinding our concrete surface to make deep cuts along the hairline cracks of the substrate. Our purpose for grinding deeper into the cracks is to repair the concrete surface with our CR Mender product.
Upon installation of our CR Mender, we can begin grinding our concrete surface within 10 minutes of application. Additionally, our CR Mender is self-leveling and provides extreme adhesion for our Polyurea Basecoat. This should be considered as Step #1 of our application process and from here we complete Step #2: Grinding our Concrete Surface.
After we treat and repair all hairline cracks within our substrate, we move onto Step #2: Grinding our Concrete Surface. Our products work much like a strong glue to concrete. However, concrete becomes dusty, oil ridden and acts as a poor adhesive surface from years of exposure to the elements. In order for us to prepare our surface for adhesion to our Polyurea Basecoat, we mechanically grind our surface to remove the to layer of concrete.
After we’ve removed the top layer we can then roll on Step #3: our Polyurea Basecoat. This product is rolled directly onto our concrete substrate and acts as the “glue” between our substrate & vinyl chip flakes. Once applied, this product cures in just a few short hour so we have limited time to apply our Vinyl Chip Flakes before the workability of the product diminishes.
Now is the fun part: Step #4 – Vinyl Chip Flakes. At this stage, we apply the colorful vinyl chips that are distinct to the look and appeal of our product line. Because we are working with “vinyl” chip flakes – we have nearly a limitless amount of colors for you to choose from. Of course, we have some pre-assorted colors that you can browse our on Color Options page of our website. However, if you have a specific color arrangement in mind – we can help!
Just email us a picture of a logo or image so we can identify the Vinyl Chip Flakes that match closely to your design. From here we can create a customized surface that matches your business, favorite sports team or just to express your artistic creativity!
Upon installation of our Vinyl Chip Flakes we then move onto our final step: Polyurea Top Coat. This is the final stage of our installation process and it’s what seals and protects our Vinyl Chip Flakes from the outside elements. Rolled on as a clear liquid, our Polyurea Top Coat cures to create an “orange peel like” texture that provides excellent adhesion and superb protection for years to come!

Texas – The Perfect Environment for Crack Formation
Like most garage floors, this particular job site didn’t have any type of protective coating on the floor surface. Just exposed concrete. This is builder grade material and if you go out to purchase a home today, you’re 99% likely to wind up with this type of surface in your garage. Additionally, if you’ve owned a home previously, you familiar with floor stains and how easy they are to acquire. Whether it’s an oil leak from your car, a spilled can of paint, some dirty tools or just wear and tear over time – exposed concrete floors don’t hold up well over time.
In addition, you’ve always got to add in the factor of slight ground movement. Texas is the best state in America (nobody is arguing that) but we have some HOT summers and COLD winters. All of this variation in our ambient air temperature causes the soils beneath our homes to expand and contract.
These changes in air temperature drive expansion and contraction beneath the slabs of our home. Compound this with periods of dryness or wetness (due to heavy Spring rains) and you’ve got an environment that is perfect for concrete crack formations. This garage was no exception and our client had lots of hairline cracks spreading the surface of their garage floor. Luckily, we’ve got the perfect treatment option for floors with cracks so we performed some crack repair and treatment prior to moving forward with our installation.
Crack Repair & Surface Treatment
In order for us to patch and smooth our this concrete surface, we applied our CR Mender – developed by Penntek Coatings. This product works exceptionally well for filling in a wide array of crack sizes to create a smooth surface finish. It works by filling the voids left from cracks to create a surface that is two-times stronger than standard concrete. Once applied, we putty knife the finish to create a smooth layer with unnoticeable deviation from our concrete surface to the CR Mender product.
Our 1 Day Coatings applicators want our product to last for years to come: 15-years (Residential) & 5-years (Commercials) to be exact. That’s the timeframe for our exceptional warranty and we stand behind our products throughout the lifetime of your warranty policy with us! In order for our applications to hold up for these durations of time, we thoroughly inspect your concrete surfaces for imperfections to perform all types of repairs prior to applying our 1 Day Coatings products!
This is our way of insuring our client satisfaction and the optimal performance of our Polyurea floor coatings. By thoroughly evaluating the concrete surface, we identify and patch all of the existing cracks – providing our crews with a stronger and more durable surface than what was previously there.
Applying The Pecan Color
At 1 Day Coatings, we have a strong lineup of pre-assorted color selections that you can view on our Chip Color page! We have lots of clients who love the color selections that we already have picked up. Of course, you always have the option of customizing your color blend. After all, we are working with Vinyl Chip Flakes and there are literally hundreds of vinyl chip flake colors to choose from. But for this installation, our client was happy to go with the Pecan color chip, as seen on our images.
In order to prepare our concrete surfaces for the application of our Vinyl Chip Flakes, we first follow these steps:
Mechanically Grind the concrete surface to expose a fresh layer of concrete
Vacuum and remove all dust and debris
Identify & Treat all Surface Cracks with CR Mender or CR Patch & Coat
Apply Polyurea Base Coat across entire concrete surface
These steps sound simple, and they certainly are. However, the trick comes to the level of detail that we perform for each installation.
As you might image, our Polyurea Floor Coatings “adhere” to your concrete surface. In order for us to create the optimal level of adhesion, we have to first properly “prep” our concrete surface and remove all forms of dust, debris and repair the surface. Once “prepped” our teams apply our Polyurea Basecoat to create our first layer of adhesion to the concrete surface. From here, we broadcast our Chip Flake Selections across the fresh Polyurea Basecoat to create our color blend.

Our teams are on standby ready to provide you with beneficial information pertaining to our Polyurea products and why they are the best products available for concrete coatings.
Have you ever invested your hard earned money into upgrading your home or office, only to realize you made a bad investment? Whether it be a new home appliance, used car, new computer or paint for your walls – sometimes our purchases wind up causing more harm than good. When our purchases don’t work as intended – it’s easy to feel frustrated and ready for the problem to be fixed.
As a part of the floor coating industry, we’ve seen numerous clients with this predicament. From garage floor epoxy coatings, to stamped & stained concrete decks – the scenarios are always different and yet similar in their problem. In each of these scenarios, our client is frustrated by their unhappiness with their current floors and want something new and restorative.
It’s in these scenarios that we are glad to introduce our Polyurea Floor Coatings. Not only is our product a fix-all solution, but it’s also colorful and safe for your indoor surfaces and outdoor living spaces. Versatile by design, it can be installed in dirty, hard working areas such as a commercial garage or in a delicate, beautiful space like a business showroom. In all of these cases, our product is easy to keep clean and stands tough to wear and tear due to it’s durable Polyurea composition.
A Stamped & Stained Concrete Deck
Stamped and Stained concrete decks are a popular surface selection that many home owners choose for their outdoor living spaces. When installed properly, it’s both beautiful and durable. Unfortunately (as we mentioned above) there are always conditions where a home investment turns sour. Additionally, it’s not until the installation of the Stamped & Stained material is complete that you can see the finished product.
Whether it be an incorrect installation, poor color selection or improper cure sequence – your concrete surface can be ruined by a Stamped & Stain gone wrong. So what is there to do in a situation like this?
Unfortunately, with stamped & stained concrete surfaces, there is very little that can be done besides covering it up. Because stamped & stained concrete is still concrete, the top surface cannot be easily removed. Additionally, the stain absorbs into the concrete. If you were to remove the first few inches of concrete materials, you’d likely still see the stain in the lower layers of concrete. That means that grinding the top surface down isn’t likely the best course of action.
Cover It With Our Polyurea Concrete Coating
Luckily, 1 Day Coatings offers the perfect concrete coating material. Our Polyurea Concrete Coatings are designed specifically for concrete. That also means that it’s also the perfect solution for covering up Stamped & Stained concrete surfaces.
As you can see from our images, our installer was able to use our CR Mender to fill the voids between the concrete stamp. By filling the voids, we created a smooth and flat surface to then apply the remainder of our products for the installation. From here we followed our same installation procedures to install our Polyurea Base Coat, Vinyl Chip Flakes & Polyurea Top Coat.
What we are trying to say is this: even if you feel like your concrete surface is ruined and beyond repair – there is still hope! To date, we’ve repaired dozens of concrete surfaces with a wide range of issues. From epoxy floor coatings, to Stamped & Stained surfaces, to cracked concrete or stained concrete – it’s all fixable by our revolutionary products developed by Penntek Coatings.

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!

For them, this outdoor renovation was more about bringing the family and friends together than just protecting their concrete surface.
So how about you? Do you have an area of your home that you’d love to renovate and bring to life for your complete enjoyment? Do you have a man cave or an outdoor living space that you envision greater things? If so, we invite you to contact 1 Day Coatings – and let us help you bring your vision to life! We love working with clients who love their homes and offices. Our purpose is to provide a superior flooring product so that you can enjoy doing life in these areas. Let us help you accelerate your lifestyle and get the most enjoyment out of your home or office today!
How would you define a “man cave?” According to the Oxford Dictionary, a man cave can be defined as “a room or other part of a home used by a man as a place to relax and pursue hobbies away from the rest of the family.” Generally speaking, man caves are limited to just the garage. In such habitats, men can be spotted working and sweating outside in a space designed for loud music, car maintenance and home repairs.
For generations, such spaces have been limited to elbow grease, an old stereo and cold beer. Nowadays, however, men are evolving into sophisticated creatures that enjoy the finer necessities of life. Air conditioning, an outdoor refrigerator, high end work benches and power tools – what’s left to be desired by the male breed?
If we may be so bold – we suggest upgrading the floor of that man cave from a dirty, oil stained concrete floor to a high end and beautiful Polyurea floor coating! Women – you’ll be proud of your new, beautiful garage floor and feel peace of mind knowing that he can’t stain or damage his “approved” play area of the home. You now have much greater control of his outdoor environment and he will presume that the floor coating was always his idea.
This is classified as a “win win” in modern Psychology and leaves both parties feeling content with their purchase decision. Take our advice – buy your man a upgraded floor coating. Your house, garage and man will thank you **(remember the key point – let them think it was still their idea).
The Cost of Floor Decals: Old School versus New School
Men, are you a proud fan of a sports team or the creator of a business that you want to represent? As you might’ve guessed, adding a floor logo to your concrete floors is a great way to show off your pride and boost the “cool factor” of your man cave! However, prior to the creation our revolutionary Polyurea Floor Coatings (developed by Penntek Coatings) installing a floor decal was expensive and difficult.
The old school method of installing a floor decal required the use of powered hand tools to etch a design into the concrete surface. During this process, the floor needed to be carefully etched(because any etch is a permanent engraving in a concrete surface). After creating the lines of the design, the concrete artisan then stained the concrete surface with various dyes and pigmentation. The design had to then cure and be sealed for long lasting protection.
As you might’ve guessed, this process is very time consuming and you’re paying for a all of the time required for that concrete artisan to install his design. This high price tag is often out of reach for most residential projects – hence the need for an alternative product…
Our Method is Much Cheaper and Faster
Luckily, our method of installing a floor logo is simpler and much more cost effective. Because our products are installed in 3 steps: Polyurea Base Coat, Vinyl Chip Flakes & Polyurea Top Coat – we can install floor logos seamlessly without slowing down our installation crews. How do we do it?
As seen in our images from this Garage Floor Remodel – our teams install a vinyl decal right on top of our Vinyl Chip Flakes (before sealing the floors with the Polyurea Top Coat). All we need is the Vinyl Decal to lay onto our Vinyl Chip Flake (prior to sealing with our Top Coat). It’s as easy as that!
Designed With a High Level of Durability
Essentially we are just adding another Vinyl component to our Vinyl Chip Flake process. Why do we put so much emphasis on Vinyl components? Well, for starters, our floor are designed to retain a high level of flexibility throughout the lifetime of our floors. Our floors are capable of being mended and repaired – even years after their installation.
We put so much faith in our floor products that we offer a 15-year residential & 5-year commercial warranty on all Polyurea floor installations. This is an unheard of guarantee in our industry. It’s our way to insuring that our clients receive the maximum level of protection. It’s also our way of delivering the highest quality service for floors that are designed to out last and out perform the competition!
