All too often, homeowners rely upon basement epoxy floors for their finishing needs. While this is a reliable solution that has been around for years, the experts at Premier Concrete Coatings are here to open your eyes to a new solution. With polyurea floor coatings, your home is allotted the same, yet superior, benefits that you’ve come to love.
Here is a closer look.
Let’s talk about installation times.
When undergoing any upgrade or remodel to your home, installation time is a significant factor. The faster, the better, especially when the situation disrupts your home. With epoxy, homeowners should expect a four to six-day turnaround. No, the application does not take this long. Instead, once the epoxy is applied, a curing time must be followed to ensure optimal sealing.
And then, there is polyurea that is often installed in a single day with a 24-hour turnaround on usability.
Toxicity is a key player as well.
Along with extended installation and before-usage times, epoxy flooring emits toxic fumes into the home as it dries and cures. Without the proper ventilation and constant airflow, these fumes can pose a risk to you and your family. However, with polyurea, homeowners have a solution with near-zero VOCs.
Linked to several short and long-term adverse health risks and conditions, these gases should play a significant factor when selecting between products for your basement flooring coating.
