Did you know that 52% of people reported completing a DIY project on their own? If you’re a homeowner, then you understand the importance of a home workshop as you tackle projects around your house. 

Whether your workshop is a detached pole barn or simply your garage, you can’t overlook your flooring. This is why you need polyurea coating for your floors. No matter what material your workshop flooring is made from, polyurea can be applied, preventing corrosion and protecting a deteriorating concrete floor. 

But what is polyurea coating, and why is it the smart choice for your workshop floor? Keep reading to find out. 

What Is Polyurea Coating?

Polyurea is a subset of polyurethane. It’s extremely durable, working as a floor sealant and coating. You can use it for your commercial floor, garage floor, or workshop floor, to name a few. 

Polyurea works extremely well with porous surfaces such as concrete and wood. When applied, it bonds to the moisture in your floors, creating a durable barrier. This barrier is what protects against scratches, exterior elements such as rain and snow, and other potential hazards that can wreak havoc on your flooring. 

The cost of polyurea coating depends on the size of your garage or workshop. It’s priced per square foot, but on average you can expect to pay anywhere from $5 to $7 per square foot. 

How Is Polyurea Coating Applied?

Polyurea coating should be applied by technicians who know how to properly handle and apply the product. DIY kits aren’t the same quality as professional-grade polyurea, and will cost you more in the long run.

Additionally, polyurea coating requires at least two people to apply it, so it’s best to let a professional handle the installation. Even though polyurea is environmentally friendly, it’s still a good idea to let a knowledgeable technician complete the job. 

But, once applied, your garage or workshop will be ready to go in roughly a day! You’ll even be able to park your car on it. 

Here’s how the installation process works:

  1. Prep the surface
  2. Clean the surface
  3. Repair any cracks and pits
  4. Prepare coatings
  5. Coat verticals and stairs
  6. Apply a basecoat
  7. Apply two-tone Medici coatings
  8. Vacuum the floor
  9. Apply clear polyurea topcoat

It’s that simple! You’ll have high-quality, durable flooring perfect for your garage or workshop. 

Benefits of Polyurea Flooring

Your workshop flooring demands the best, and polyurea delivers quality performance and durability while taking into consideration key safety factors such as slip prevention.

Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of polyurea coating.


Polyurea’s durability provides long-lasting protection, making it the superior option compared to traditional coatings. High-quality floors last longer and save you money, as you won’t have to replace them as often as less expensive products. 

Polyurea can last upwards of 10 years, if not longer, depending on the installation process and the quality of the product you use. You’ll get a brand-new garage floor without having to break the bank!

If your garage floor is outdated, chipping, cracking, or sinking, polyurea can restore it, extending the life of your floor while revamping its appearance. Garage floors can last upwards of 25 years, and polyurea can prevent you from completely replacing your garage floor. 


Polyurea is installed easily, getting your garage or workshop up and running in no time. It’s also scratch-resistant, something every workshop benefits from. Whether you’re working on cars, small engines, or your next carpentry project, a scratch-resistant floor is key. 

If your existing garage floor has dents or abrasion damage, a polyurea coating will cover those imperfections will giving your floors a glossy appearance. 

Wears Well

Polyurea can withstand a significant amount of damage. For example, it resists harsh weather conditions. If your garage or workshop is prone to water, then polyurea is for you, as it’s waterproof. It’s even chemical resistant if something accidentally spills. 

Once installed, polyurea is a “set it and forget it” product. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy your new floors!

Low Maintenance

Your time is valuable and should be spent enjoying your workshop instead of maintaining it. Polyurea is a low-maintenance coating for your floor. Spills are easily wiped up and there’s no fear of anything staining your floors due to its non-porous nature. Even better, your floors won’t need recoating. 

UV Resistance

UV rays are known to discolor floors. But with polyurea, this is a non-issue. Polyurea coatings resist UV rays, making them ideal for outdoor flooring. 


Polyurea coatings are naturally slip-resistant. This is especially important during rain and snow when you’re likely to slip on slick surfaces. Polyurea can work to prevent accidents in your workshop, keeping you safe. 

But what makes polyurea slip-resistant?

Some coatings are made with vinyl chips that give your flooring added texture. This improves traction regardless of exterior weather. These chips also give your flooring the appearance of granite, adding to its aesthetic.
