Hello, loyal patrons of Patriot Coatings! We hope you’re enjoying the beauty of your homes and outdoor spaces. Today, we want to shed light on a common misconception affecting the longevity and appeal of your concrete patio – the idea of painting it.

While painting might seem like a quick and cost-effective solution to enhance the aesthetics of your patio, we at Patriot Coatings believe it’s essential to inform our customers about the potential drawbacks associated with traditional paint. Instead, we’re excited to introduce you to a superior alternative – UV-protected, Slip-Resistant, Polyurea/Polyaspartic Concrete Coating!

Let’s delve into the reasons why painting your concrete patio might not be the best choice:

Problem #1 – Painting Concrete & Peeling Woes:

One of the primary issues with painted concrete surfaces is the notorious peeling problem. Over time, exposure to the elements, foot traffic, and other environmental factors can cause paint to crack and peel. This ruins the visual appeal and requires frequent touch-ups, leading to increased maintenance costs.

Problem #2 – Limited Durability:

Traditional paints often struggle to withstand the harsh conditions of outdoor environments. UV rays, fluctuating temperatures, and moisture can take a toll on painted surfaces, resulting in a short lifespan. This means more frequent repainting, making it an impractical and inconvenient choice for those seeking long-lasting protection.

“Unless you have the right tools to measure your concrete’s moisture level – the paint will never stick” – Andrew Moe.

Problem #3 – Inadequate Resistance:

Concrete patios are subjected to various elements, including heavy foot traffic, furniture placement, and spills. Traditional paint may not provide the necessary resistance against these factors, leading to stains, discoloration, and an overall worn-out appearance.

Now that we’ve highlighted the pitfalls of painting your concrete patio let’s shift our focus to a revolutionary solution – flake polyurea/polyaspartic coatings:

Problem #4 – Same goes for Garages Floors too:

Garage floors face a range of challenges, enduring heavy foot traffic, the weight of vehicles, potential oil spills, and other environmental stressors. Unfortunately, traditional paint is often inadequate in offering resistance to these factors. This deficiency can result in the formation of stubborn stains, discoloration, and an overall tired and worn appearance.

Now that we’ve outlined the shortcomings of relying on traditional paint for your garage floors let’s redirect our attention to an innovative solution – the application of flake polyurea/polyaspartic coatings.
