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.

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!

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!

How much work have you put into your home to upgrade your living spaces? Have you recently installed some wood flooring, modern cabinets, a theater room or a swimming pool? Home ownership is a blessing that we should all cherish. However, there comes a point in all of our ownership experiences when we want to change some things out.
Maybe it’s a new kitchen, bathroom or bedroom. With all of the possible choices for home investment, have you thought about your outdoor living space? Before we lose you and you click to some other site – let’s first talk about it! How often are youcurrently outside? Now, pretend you could upgrade your back patio or backyard and max out the upgrades – how much time would you spend outside?
If the answer changed from “not much” to “a lot more” then we need to talk! Many of our clients spend most of their time indoors. The reason being – they don’t have a back patio or outdoor living space worth spending time in. Let’s face it, most homes are built with builder grade concrete patios and no outdoor accessories. Often these spaces are uncomfortable, hot and not much fun to spend time in.
Save Money & Upgrade Your Outdoor Living Space!
But with 1 Day Coatings – all of that can change! Let’s face it, most of our outdoor living spaces have to have some kind of flooring. Whether it be a concrete surface, brick or travertine pavers or something else entirely – you have to have something to walk on. *To categorize ourselves, it’s important to point out here that our products can only be applied to concrete surfaces.
If you plan on renovating your outdoor living space, then one of the items sure to be on your shopping list is resurfacing the concrete deck. And yes, this can be a costly upgrade – especially if you elect to install stamped and stained concrete or a natural stone paver surface. However, by electing to upgrade your floors to our Polyurea Floor Coatings – you can save money, time and wind up with a higher quality surface that is backed by our Residential or Commercial Warranty! Not only do we install fabulous products but we protect that investment for 10-years on all Residential installations and 5-years for Commercial installations.
Now, let’s talk about cost! Many home owners begin to get a little fidgety when discussing price, but what if we told you that our products could help save you money? That may seem a bit confusing, but that type of thinking is generally related to some bad experience you’ve had with another home contractor.
At 1 Day Coatings we want you to rest assured that we are built on honest, old fashioned values and we deliver exceptional value with all of our products! Just give us a shot and fill out our Instant Estimator form today!

This back porch is a smaller size that required some crack repairs prior to installing our Polyurea Floor Coating. To complete the repairs, our crews utilized the CR Mender, developed by Penntek Coatings. This product is excellent at concrete adhesion and helps to fill the crack and provide a hard, durable surface for our Polyurea Base coat to adhere to.
Upon completion of our CR Mender application, we applied our Polyurea Base coat and generously distributed our Vinyl Chip Flakes to create our stunning color. In fact, it looks like Brandon & Coe got a little creative with their dispersion techniques. Did somebody ask for the Vinyl Chip Flake fairy?

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!
