Converting a Stamped Concrete Surface to a Polyurea Coating

Converting a Stamped Concrete Surface to a Polyurea Coating

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.

Here you can see how this stamped & stained concrete deck looked prior to our installation technician arriving at the job site. This surface appears severely worn as you can see a wide array of discoloration and some concrete patching. The truth to stamped & stained concrete is: it’s tough to maintain and doesn’t wear as well as you hope when purchasing the material.

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.

Our installation technician used our CR Mender to fill the cracks & voids between the stamped concrete surface. Originally, this concrete material was meant to look like a French pattern surface (with various stones sizes). Luckily, our CR Mender was able to fill the voids to create a smooth surface for our Polyurea materials to be applied.

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.

Alas, you can see how transformative and beautiful this concrete surface looks after the application of our Polyurea Concrete Coating. This application is particularly amazing because you can’t even see any sign of the stamped & stained concrete surface that lies beneath the surface. Our technician did an amazing job of hiding the stamped layer and left our client with a smooth surface with a consistent texture.

Garage Floor Remodel – Lawton, OK

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).

Prior to installing any of our Polyurea floor systems – we always take diligent care to “prep” our concrete surface. This involves mechanically grinding your concrete surface to remove the top layer of concrete and expose a fresh aggregate for adhesion to our Polyurea Base coat.

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…

One amazing benefit of our Vinyl Chip System is our ability to apply Vinyl Decals. These decals are great ways to customize your Polyurea floor coating! These decorative pieces are protected by our Polyurea Top Coat – which provides long lasting protection for your entire flooring system!

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 Coatwe 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!
