Best Patio Coatings Contractor in San Antonio, TX

Patio Coatings Experts

For the homeowner who enjoys spending San Antonio summers on their porch, quality patio coatings are a must. Concrete patio coatings not only make your porch look like something out of a magazine; they also keep it that way for years.

Painting concrete patios and making them presentable is hard work. Epoxy patio floors are cost-effective options that leave your wallet full and your patio slip-free, but they are also prone to a host of issues that can leave you with a subpar result.

When you hire EMC Concrete Coatings, you can toss away your old paints and kick back with a gorgeous patio floor resurfaced with a durable polyurea coating.

Our customers stand by our quality, and we do, too. With EMC Concrete Coatings at the helm, you will never need to paint your concrete porch again.

Why Resurface Your Patio Floor?

When remodeling your patio, you have several options. You can paint your concrete porch, install new pavers, or resurface it.

Painting a concrete patio is unreliable, with some outdoor concrete floor paints fading away or chipping months after application.

New pavers may look attractive, but they are weed beds at best and tripping hazards at worst.

Applying exterior concrete coatings on your patio floor gives it all of the aesthetic versatility of paint and the durability of new pavers with none of the former’s drawbacks.



Polyurea Versus Epoxy Outdoor Patios

Here lies the question: Polyurea or Epoxy? When researching floor coatings, epoxy patio floors are often the first thing you find, and epoxy paints for outdoor concrete patios are accessible to homeowners on a budget.

However, epoxy outdoor patios do not stand up to polyurea patio coatings. They are not as reliable, especially during San Antonio summers.

What is Epoxy?

Epoxy is a type of floor coating made from resin and hardeners. Contractors and DIYers make epoxy concrete patios by treating a pre-prepared patio with layers of epoxy resin. The resin is then left to dry – or “cure” – for several days until it is ready to be walked on.

Epoxy is known for its glossy sheen, versatile aesthetic options, and low price per cubic foot. You can find epoxy paints online or in any hardware store.

What is Polyurea?

Polyurea is a floor coating and sealant that is a subset of polyurethane. It chemically bonds with concrete floors and forms a level, slip-free coating.

Polyurea is known for its durability and quick cure time. Many tout polyurea coatings can be done quickly, but curing time depends on various environmental factors. However, polyurea coatings will always cure quicker than even the fastest-curing epoxy.

Why is Polyurea Better Than Epoxy?

Epoxy patios seem like an economical option for your San Antonio home. But before you consider dropping money on that DIY epoxy application kit, keep the following in mind:

Heavy Chemical Fumes

Even though your patio is outdoors, nobody wants to deal with chemical fumes when they are walking their dog or going out to get the mail.

Epoxy curing times can last several days, even outdoors. This leaves plenty of time for children, pets, or neighbors to pass by and inhale the fumes.

Polyurea takes far less time to cure. Lower cure times mean less fumes, and less fumes mean no sick pets or grandmas.

Bubbles, Air Pockets, and Other Unsightly Issues

Epoxy floors are level with a slip-free coating at the best of times, but an unprepared concrete floor can lead to a host of problems that lead to faulty flooring.

Faulty or poorly prepared epoxy flooring has bubbles, cracks, and air pockets that lift it from the concrete. Polyurea is a much more flexible coating and is far less prone to these issues than epoxy floors.

Humidity Problems

This is the nail in the coffin for outdoor epoxy patios. Epoxy floors are non-slip when dry, but even the smallest touch of water leads to falling hazards, and San Antonio’s humidity can make them peel or crack from the inside out.

Polyurea is resistant to both weather and humidity, even in the muggiest summers or the driest winters.

What are the benefits of coating my garage or patio floor?

There are a multitude of benefits to coating your concrete surface. Our prep phase will eliminate high spots or surface deficiencies through diamond grinding or shotblasting. In addition, our trained technicians will fill in any cracks, holes, or spalls on your concrete surface prior to any coating being placed. This ensures a smooth and uniform appearance throughout your slab. Concrete is very porous and can make stain removal difficult. With a high-performance coating installed, you will be able to remove otherwise tough stains with a spray of your water hose. And lastly, our floors look amazing! The garage is often overlooked when it comes to renovation/upgrades, but a professionally installed resinous coating will add $$$ to the value of your home.

Do you offer free on-site quotes?
Yes, we do. EMC Concrete Coatings always prefers to visit you at your project site to take
measurements and go over your coatings/color options. Our quotes are valid for 90 days and there is never any pressure. We are not here to make you feel uncomfortable or pressured. Our process is smooth and easy for everyone involved.
Can you give me a “ball-park” price over the phone?
Yes. However, this is not the way we prefer to quote jobs. Each project is unique and a
“standard 2 car garage” is going to be different for every homebuilder in town. Square footage’s, linear walls, garage aprons, and condition of the slab all play a very important role in providing you with an accurate quote. This simply cannot be done in a matter of seconds via a phone call or messenger.
How much does it cost to install a decorative coating on my garage floor?
A typical 2 car garage coatings installation in the greater San Antonio area will cost between $2’400 and $3’000. Our pricing is based on square footages and other aspects of the project, including the linear footage of any stem walls, aprons, or repair work.

Oversized or multi-car garages, patios, or other areas will result in higher priced estimates.

Do you use epoxy or polyurea for garage coatings?
We use all the above. Resinous coatings do not come in a one size fits all application. The
details and specs of each project will help our trained technicians determine what coating is best for your project. Typically, we use polyurea coatings for our garages and patio installations. However, shop floors and other commercia/residential spaces will call for epoxies, urethanes, or water-based materials. Rest assured, no matter which products we use, they are from reputable coatings manufacturers and TDS sheets are always available to our customers upon
Is this service affordable?
