Concrete Coatings in Arlington, VA

Best Concrete Coatings in Arlington, VA

Anyone who has seen Graham Caldwell’s entrancing sculpture Up and Down in Arlington, VA cannot help but appreciate the versatility and beauty of concrete. If you are investing in a concrete structure for your home or business, whether it’s a patio or a piece of art, you want it to last. Skyline Concrete Coating protect concrete, add color, and impart texture. They elevate concrete from a functional material to something subtle and timeless.

Why Use Concrete Coatings?

Concrete is a durable material, but it can chip away and suffer damage from exposure to the elements. Concrete coatings protect concrete surfaces from wear and tear and provide a watertight seal that extends the life of exterior concrete in rainy areas.

Many people think of concrete as drab and gray, but concrete coatings give concrete versatility and vibrancy. Concrete coatings can add an accent of color and a polished shine to concrete. For a more subtle or complex aesthetic, concrete coating overlays can create decorative color patterns or provide the look of stone or marble.

Epoxy Flooring for Homes

Many contractors use a form of resin called epoxy to coat concrete. Although some epoxy coatings are low-cost, epoxy coatings have several drawbacks that limit their usefulness as concrete coatings.

Polyaspartic Floor Coatings

Polyurea and Polyaspartic are materials called polymers that, like epoxy, form a protective coating when applied to concrete. Compared to epoxy coatings, polyurea and polyaspartic coatings have:

  • More flexibility, which reduces damage caused by the contraction and expansion of concrete
  • Greater durability, with an easy-to-clean surface
  • Greater resistance to fading
  • Resistance to UV light
  • Faster curing times, for faster project completion

Due to these advantages, Skyline Concrete Coating do not use epoxy coatings. They offer polyurea coatings with a polyaspartic topcoat and have released their own line of specially formulated concrete floor coatings.

Concrete is a versatile material with many applications in residential and commercial construction. Concrete coatings enhance the natural strengths of concrete and are durable and versatile. The addition of colored chips to the coatings creates various color options to suit a range of color palettes and styles. Consider how concrete coatings enhance the following floor systems.

Polyaspartic Garage Floors

Garage floors test the durability of any flooring material. Skyline Concrete Coating are strong enough to withstand industrial environments without losing their polish or shine. Whether your garage is a workshop, a studio, or a place to tend to your cars, your polyaspartic garage floors will be bright and clean.

Pool Decks

Pool water can be hard on many building materials, including concrete. Acidic chemicals can permeate concrete and cause it to degrade, and chlorine can corrode rebar and support structures within concrete. A polyaspartic concrete coating prevents pool water and its harsh chemicals from infiltrating concrete.

Patio Floors, Driveways, and Walkways

Exterior concrete surfaces are particularly prone to damage from the elements. A durable polyaspartic coating from Skyline Concrete Coating offers protection against wind, rain, debris, and other outdoor hazards. Don’t let your yard look weather-beaten or faded after a few storm seasons; give your patios, driveways, and walkways protection that lasts.

Commercial Properties

A tidy floor is a sign of an orderly, disciplined workplace. What will your employees, visitors, and customers think when they see a garage, factory floor, or storehouse with gray, chipped floors that houses dust and grime? A gleaming floor with a color that matches your brand is the literal foundation for a workplace culture of success.

Skyline Concrete Coating professionally develops coatings to the highest standards of quality. They are a cost-effective tool for safeguarding your vital business infrastructure. Whether you are building a walkway, a wheelchair ramp, a warehouse, or an art installation, we will find you the perfect coatings for your type of concrete and your business needs.

The Skyline Concrete Coating Process

Skyline Concrete Coating dedicates itself to one task: The creation and application of top-quality concrete coatings. The Skyline process has been streamlined to be cost-effective, efficient, and reliable. The six-step process is simple, and Skyline Concrete Coating will customize each step to meet each customer’s  unique needs.

Preparation: Expert blasting and grinding of the concrete surface to prepare it for accepting the coating. This requires precision in order for the coating to be smooth and even.

Reconstruction: Fixing any flaws in the concrete before applying the concrete coating.

Application of the basecoat: The polyurea basecoat forms a stable surface that the topcoat attaches to.

Chip broadcasting: Applying the colored chips that create the design of the concrete coating. This is a delicate process that requires artistry and precision.

Scraping the chip layer: Scraping and vacuuming the chip layer removes any loose chips that could interfere with the topcoat.

Application of the clear coat. The polyaspartic layer bonds to the chips and underlying surface, stabilizing the chip layer and protecting it from UV and other sources of damage.

Skyline Concrete Coating backs up its products and application with a 15-year warranty.

How Much Do Your Concrete Floor Coatings Cost?

Each project is customized to your particular concrete flooring needs. Every job we do is different, because we offer different types of coatings and finishes.  We will work with you to develop a free estimate keeping your budget in mind. 

How Long Will The Concrete Coating Last?

We use the highest quality materials in our polyaspartic floor coatings and we have perfected our application process to make the concrete coating permanent.  Once completely cured and adhered, the concrete coating is meant to last as long as the substrate it is adhered to.

What Are The Benefits Of Using Polyaspartic Floor Coatings Over Epoxy Floor Coatings?

Polyaspartic Floor Coatings dry more quickly than Epoxy Floor Coatings, and the finish is also more durable.  Our floor concrete coating finishes are also more slip-resistant and will not discolor like some Epoxy Floor Coatings.

How Long Do I Need To Stay Off My Concrete Floor Coating After It Is Installed?

Our flooring cures within a few hours, however our team of professionals recommends waiting at least 4-6 hours before walking on your brand-new concrete coated flooring. After 12 hours, you can begin moving lightweight objects onto the flooring, like light patio furniture.  We recommend waiting a full 24 hours before moving anything heavy back into the area where we have applied the coating (your car, heavy equipment or furniture etc.).

Will My New Concrete Floor Coating Turn Yellow?

It sure will not! Our concrete floor coverings will not yellow or discolor, because they are UV stable. This  one of the many benefits of using Polyurea or Polyaspartic floor coatings.

Will I Need To Reseal My Concrete Floor Coating?

If you follow our maintenance and cleaning guidelines, you should not have to worry about resealing the concrete floor coating because it will help you to preserve the life of your concrete coating topcoat.

How Long Does It Take You To Apply Concrete Floor Coatings?

We have perfected our 6-step application process and most projects take between 5-10 hours to apply depending on the square footage. We pride ourselves in a one-day application and will do everything possible to stay within that time frame. Rainy weather can delay the project, but it is rare.

How Do I Care For My Concrete Floor Coating?

You can clean our concrete coatings with typical sweeping, mopping, or steaming, and hoses. However, you can also use non-abrasive cleaners, like CLR® to remove grease or other stains. 

Will Oil Stain My Concrete Floor Coating?

Our coatings are oil-resistant as well as moisture resistant.

Who Invented Polyaspartic Coatings?

Bayer Material Science first developed Polyaspartic coatings in the 1990s to protect steel bridges and infrastructure from rusting and corrosion. It has since been modified for different applications, such as extremely durable concrete flooring coatings.

What Are Polyaspartic Concrete Coatings?

Polyaspartic Concrete coating is another name for Aliphatic Polyurea, which is a hybrid material consisting of ester and other materials. It was originally developed to coat metal bridges.  It was later used to coat concrete flooring due to its durability and moisture resistance. Polyurea is also used to coat truck bed liners.

Can Polyaspartic Floor Coatings Be Used Outside?

They sure can!  We offer wonderful solutions for driveways, patios, and even the area around the pool.  Our coatings are all UV stable, which will help prevent discoloration or flaking.

What Types Of Environments Can Polyaspartic Floor Coatings Be Used?

Polyaspartic flooring coatings can be used in a variety of environments.  The durability, slip resistant finish is fantastic for any industrial setting, storefronts, patios, or even driveways or garages.

How Are Polyaspartic Floor Coatings Applied?

We have perfected a six step process for applying Polyaspartic Floor Coatings that involves prepping the floor, basecoating, applying chips, scraping the chips, and applying the clear UV protective clear coat. 

Can Polyaspartic Floor Coatings Be Applied In Cold Temperatures?

You can! Polyaspartic floor coatings are safe to apply in temperatures as cold as 40 degrees below zero (Fahrenheit).

How Long Do Polyaspartic Floor Coatings Take To Dry?

Our Polyaspartic Floor Coatings are engineered to rapidly cure, and can be dry in a matter of a few hours!  However, we recommend waiting at least 5-6 hours before walking on newly applied coating and 24 hours before moving heavy objects back onto the flooring.

Do I Need To Hire A Professional To Install Polyaspartic Floor Coating?

Installing Polyaspartic Floor Coating correctly is critical to the appearance and durability of your flooring.  Hiring a professional is the best way to ensure that your flooring will look amazing and last a lifetime! Our team at Skyline Concrete Coatings is certified in Polyaspartic Floor Coating installation and has many years of experience.

Is It Possible To Replace Existing Epoxy Floor Coating With Polyaspartic Floor Coating?

It is!  Polyaspartic floor coatings are specially formulated for their incredible adhesion properties.  If you have existing patches of epoxy coating, our team can sand it down, vacuum, and wipe down the area with a solvent.  Once prepped, we will apply your new, superior, Polyaspartic Floor Coating

Testimonials

We are very happy!

“We are very happy with our entire experience with Skyline Concrete Coating. The floor looks great and was at a very reasonable price. Their installation crew was efficient and very conscientious. They took care to clean up after themselves during the work and when they were done. We will likely be calling and scheduling additional projects.”
Susie B.

Looks Great!

“Skyline was super easy to work with and has a great product. I had an epoxy coating on the floor that I had put down about 16 years ago that needed to be replaced badly. They came in and ground the epoxy off, fixed all of the imperfections in the floor, and applied their product in a day! The floor looks great.”
Justin H.

Very Professional!

“Skyline Concrete Coating applied a Polyurea coating to my garage. The work they did was very professional and they were very responsive to my questions on floor coloring and applications. Floor looks great and met all my expectations.”
