Polyurea Floor Coatings Minnesota & Wisconsin
Ideal for Residential and Commercial Applications
Concrete floor coatings have a number of purposes, making concrete flooring more functional and durable than it would be otherwise. As for why you may want to opt for a Polyurea concrete coating, the reasons are many. One of the primary reasons is that you can extend the life of your concrete floors rather than having to replace or paint them. This is something that can save you a great deal of money by not replacing them and it will increase the overall value of your home for many years to come. Don’t confuse Polyurea as paint. Even some paint mixtures that include Epoxy, are still considered paint. Epoxy is a thermosetting resin that coats the floor but doesn’t withstand the elasticity you need as your floor foundation settles. It also can not withstand the temperatures of a Minnesota or Wisconsin winter, so within a few years, you will encounter pitting, chipping and splitting. This makes polyurea a valuable solution.
FLOOR CONCRETE COATINGS COME WITH MANY BENEFITS
Aside from money being saved by extending the life of your garage, basement floor or any concrete surface, there are other benefits of polyurea concrete floor coatings:
Polyurea concrete coatings are a superior way to mend cracked, chipped and dangerously uneven surfaces while creating an impenetrable barrier against moisture, chemical resistance and unwanted pests.
ONE DAY INSTALLATION PROCESS- Our exceptionally efficient crews can have your floor coated and ready for you to use in as little as 24 hours! 12 hours to walk on, 24 hours to drive on. Having BlackHawk Garage Door, install your coating will ensure the job is done professionally and quickly so that you can get back to using your space quickly.
The Minnesota and Wisconsin harsh winters can take a toll on concrete. We use the industry’s highest standard of menders and fillers to fix any pits, cracks and spalls that are present in your existing concrete floor before we begin the coating process. Unlike other coatings such as epoxy, Polyurea is highly elastic (300%) and will accommodate expansion, contraction and relative movement within the concrete so it won’t crack, chip, split or peel in the cold weather conditions or when your foundation settles.
Because the weather can be rather wet in Minnesota and Wisconsin, we add a slip-resistant aggregate to the final coat to create a skid-resistant surface. If your garage or basement floor has a high moisture content, BlackHawk Garage Door will always bring a moisture reader to ensure we are not coating over any moisture at the time of installation.
Not only are they slip-resistant, polyurea concrete coatings are also UV stable and will not yellow over time.
Polyurea concrete coatings are 100% Antibacterial and Antimicrobial. USDA-approved, polyurea concrete floor coatings make them an ideal choice for restaurants, hospitals and retail locations.
Polyurea is 4 times stronger than epoxy. It offers durability, longevity, visual appeal, UV stability, moisture barriers, is impervious to chemicals, slip resistance and has a service history that exceeds 25 years. For these reasons, polyurea concrete coatings receive high marks from homeowners and commercial business owners.
Polyurea concrete floor coatings can keep dust off your vehicles, machines, tool benches and other surfaces.
Since polyurea-coated concrete floors wear so well, they often have long product warranties. It is not unusual for a warranty to last longer than a decade. BlackHawk Garage Door has installed thousands of polyurea concrete coatings, so we carry the experience, knowledge and professionalism to ensure the job is done right. We offer a 15-year residential warranty and 5-year commercial warranty.

The only things that floor coatings may not be able to withstand are welding and anything that can result in very hot substances touching the floor. Burn marks can be created.
My garage floor is always damp! Will this help?
Also, If your garage floor has a moisture issue, it is possible for the rate of moisture vapor transmission from underneath the slab to delaminate the polyurea if the moisture content is high. BlackHawk can bring a moisture reader to your area and determine if Polyurea Floor Coating can help this issue.
But what about hot tires after they’ve been on the road?
Lesser quality coatings like epoxy paint can be affected, but a quality commercial coating can resist the heat from the tires.
Are they easy to maintain?
Another aspect of floor coatings that people wonder about is the maintenance. When you opt for something new, one of the last things you want is something that requires a lot of maintenance. You will be happy to know that your floor is easy to maintain!
Sweep off sand and salt then simply rinse with water. A squeegee works great to clear water off.
Ask us about our LGX-501 Floor Cleaner. This solvent-based cleaner has been designed specifically to work with our polyurea coatings. When mixed with warm water, the liquid concentrate will make your floors sparkling clean.
If you prefer, you may use a 8:1 ratio of Simple Green, Pine Sol, CLR, Dawn in a spray bottle and a bucket of hot water can be all you need to get the job done. Another solution to deep clean the floor is ½ cup of ammonia to a gallon of hot water. Apply the mixture with the sponge mop, rinsing the mop often.
Avoid long term exposure to Bleach and stay away from acids and highly corrosive materials.
For tougher cleaning let the cleaner sit on the floor for 5-10 minutes and scrub with a scrub brush or stiff bristle broom. Wait an additional 5 minutes, followed by a rinse for a revitalized floor.
If fluids spill onto the floor, spot clean with a soft cloth. If the spill leaves a film, Windex can be used to clean.
Vacuum out saw cuts and contraction joints at least once a month or just use a broom to keep the debris out.
