How to Spruce Up Your Patio with Epoxy Paint
Concrete patios may be fairly durable, but hygiene and aesthetics are another story. Perhaps your patio has developed mold, cracks, stains, or little nooks and crannies that trap dirt. Epoxy patio coatings improve the look while lowering maintenance needs so your family can enjoy a clean and stylish outdoor living space.
What Are Patio Epoxy Coatings?
Rather than just painting or staining concrete, an epoxy floor coating is a multilayered process. The installers first grind the surface smooth, then apply a primer that bonds with the concrete.
A scratch-resistant, nonfading polymer layer then gives the concrete a brand-new color and appearance. Finally, a clear topcoat ensures your epoxy patio floor is easy to clean and ready to last for decades.
Designed for Outdoor Floors
While many concrete floor coatings are formulated for garages and basements, your patio epoxy can be customized for outdoor use in the local climate.
We make our epoxy coatings for the Mid-Atlantic region—meaning they can withstand the heat and humidity of summer and the freezing temperatures of winter.
If you’re constantly looking for ways to repair cracked concrete or clean a patio floor, what you really need is a long-term solution.
Epoxy coatings are perfect for patios, walkways, pool decks, and more:
- Anti-skid surface
- Easy to clean
- VOC-free (no toxic fumes)
- Resists yellowing, staining
- Stronger than plain concrete
- Customizable color options
How Long Will Epoxy Last on a Patio?
We can offer a generous warranty for residential epoxy floor coatings because the epoxy bonds with concrete at the molecular level—it won’t peel or chip. For outdoor epoxy coatings, we’ll make it right if it fails in the first two years. It will last much longer, but the two-year time frame ensures that it has adhered correctly.
Of course, no matter how good a concrete coating is, the floor needs to be prepared correctly for the product to work as intended. Simply painting over a dirty, cracked patio can cause a coating to fail.
Keep in mind that not all products with “epoxy” in the name are equal. Professional epoxy floor installers use specialty tools like diamond grinding and humidity testing to ensure that a patio is ready for a coating, and the products we use are far superior to anything you can buy at retail (note that those products usually come without any warranty).
Choose Your Patio Epoxy Colors
Whether you want a natural color with a matte texture, a sleek metallic look, or the “terrazzo” style with flecks of color, you can design a patio floor coating that suits the surroundings and your personal style.
With thousands of possible color options, we can apply a patio epoxy coating that complements your house, patio furniture, and landscaping.
