Polyurethane Flooring in California

Searching for a floor in California that is decorative as well as functional? Polyurethane(PU) floors are both beautiful and practical. Due to their higher elasticity, they provide greater walking comfort.

Polyurethane(PU) is a polymer that has a significant presence in the flooring industry. Organic units that make up a polyurethane coating are connected by carbamates.

If you want to improve your floor, polyurethane coating can be a very good option. Epoxy floor coatings are less suitable in some areas. In such areas, polyurethane flooring can be a great alternative to epoxy flooring. It is a more than capable protective coating for your floors.

You can apply multiple layers of polyurethane coatings. Every extra layer of coating will improve the protection of your floor. Here are many different polyurethane products available in the market. You can choose the one that best fits your needs.

Benefits Of Using Polyurethane Flooring

Here are some advantages of using polyurethane floor coating:

Elasticity / Flexibility

Polyurethane floors are extremely elastic and flexible for a floor surface. They are very soft to walk on. It is the main feature that differentiates polyurethane from other flooring systems.


Polyurethane floors are not as hard as other types of flooring surfaces But, they are still very durable because they are better at absorbing impacts because of their flexibility and elasticity. They are durable in every condition ( cold weather, hot weather, e.t.c. ) unlike some other flooring options.

Chemical resistance

The surface underneath will not be damaged by any kind of chemicals when you use polyurethane coating. So, if you are working in a place where dangerous chemicals are used regularly, having a polyurethane coating will be helpful.


They are very durable meaning that you will save a lot on repair costs. When you eventually have to upgrade the floor, you can just replace the top coat instead of having to change the entire flooring system.

Short curing time & Less chance of damage

They are a very short curing time compared to other flooring options. They will not easily get scratched like other harder flooring options. Cracks are also less likely to appear.

Resistant to high temperature

They are resistant to high temperatures which means that they can sometimes prevent accidental fire hazards. This is the reason why most of restaurants have polyurethane floor coating. Polyurethane floors have the capacity to tolerate temperatures up to 120 °C.

Slip Resistant

Most of the flooring systems become slippery when they are wet. But, that’s not the case with PU floor coating. They will provide a very good grip even when they are slippery. Polyurethane flooring helps in slip-fall accident reduction.

Fit For Places That Need Sterile Conditions

Polyurethane is easy to clean and can also be applied in places where the conditions need to be sterile. That’s why they are good to use in hospitals and other healthcare centers.

Polyurethane Coating For Wood Floors

Wood floors are a lot more flexible and elastic when compared to other types of surfaces like metal, concrete floors, etc. So, it’s best to add a protective layer that is also very flexible to deal with the elongation of wood floors. Adding polyurethane floor coatings will just enhance one of the main qualities of wood floors i.e. softness while walking.

On the other hand, other protective floor coatings may remove the best property of wood floors. This makes polyurethane flooring the best option for wood floors. People also apply epoxy coatings on wood floors.

Polyurethane Coating For Garage Floor

Polyurethane coatings are great for your garage floors as well. They are resistant to chemicals like oil, grease, e.t.c. In case of liquid spills, the floor will not get slippery. Polyurethane will also make the garage floor extremely durable as its flexibility will easily take impact your cars.

When your garage floors are flexible and soft, your cars will also have to bear less impact. It will be great for the longevity of your car as even minor impacts can pile up to create a big issue for your car. Polyurethane floors will reflect light making your garage space brighter.

How To Install Polyurethane Floors

Before applying the polyurethane floor coating, you have to make sure the area is well-ventilated. Then remove all the objects from the floor surface and clean the surface. You also need protective gear when applying the epoxy coating. The fumes produced during the installation process can be dangerous. The protective gear that you have to wear includes a respiratory mask, eye protector, and hand gloves. 

Once all the debris is removed, you have to sand the floor for better adhesion. After that, vacuum the floor and clean the surface with mineral spirits to get rid of any dust present on the surface after sanding. After the dust is clear, you have to seal the area with masking tape to make sure that the polyurethane will not go to places where it shouldn’t.

After the preparation is complete, you can start applying the polyurethane coating. It’s best to mix all the polyurethane in one big jar before applying it for a more durable finish. Once the mixture is complete, you can use a clean stirrer to clean any lumps in the polyurethane. Then you start applying the polyurethane with a new paintbrush. Start applying the coating using a roller from a corner that is farthest from the exit to make sure that you will not have to walk over the surface where the coating has already been applied. After the first coat is applied, you have to wait for a few hours to apply the next coat. Read the instructions given in the polyurethane can and wait for the appropriate amount of time. 

Once you have applied all layers of coat, use abrasive pads to even out the surface. Also, immediately clean any spills or unwanted debris on the surface of the final coat that has been recently applied. 

Since the installation process for polyurethane floors can be complex, it’s best to hire a professional to do it.

  • Polyurethane
  • Mineral Spirits
  • Sanding Machine
  • Stirrer Stick

Water Based Polyurethane Vs Oil Based Polyurethane

Both water-based polyurethane and oil-based polyurethane are very common. Each of them has its own advantages and disadvantages.

In terms of looks, water-based polyurethane gives a more transparent look to the floor. So, if you like the look of your existing surface and do not want to make major changes to the looks, you should choose water-based polyurethane. On the other hand, oil-based polyurethane adds glow to your existing flooring surface. The finish of an oil-based polyurethane coating is shinier when compared to water-based polyurethane. Some may the natural looks of water-based polyurethane and others may prefer the glow of polyurethane coating.

Water-based polyurethane contains less percentage of solids than oil-based polyurethane. It makes the oil-based polyurethane a more durable and stronger option. So, you have to apply more coats when you apply water-based polyurethane. Water-based epoxy dries quickly and you can apply the next coat within two hours of applying the previous coat. But, when you use oil-based polyurethane, you have to wait at least 5 hours to apply the next layer of coating. This also means your floor becomes unusable for longer when you use oil-based polyurethane. When applying the oil-based polyurethane, you have to put up with a strong odor. But, that’s not the case with water-based epoxy.

Epoxy Vs Polyurethane Floor Coating

The main difference between epoxy and Polyurethane flooring is their molecular structure. Polyurethane coating and epoxy coating have become very common flooring options. Their purposes and application areas are quite similar. So, they are often compared with each other. Many people do get confused about which one to choose.

Both flooring options are durable. Epoxy’s durability comes from its hardness and sturdiness. Polyurethane floors are durable because their flexibility allows them to absorb high impact. While polyurethane can handle a lot of pressure, it’s best to use epoxy floors in places like factories heavy trucks, equipment, etc. If you’re looking for a flooring option that is very attractive and offers a wide variety of design options, you should choose epoxy flooring.

If you are looking for the best coating for places exposed to high levels of chemicals and UV rays, you should definitely choose PU floor coatings. In low temperatures, epoxy can harden itself without curing properly. So, if you are not careful, you’ll not be able to get the desired finish with the epoxy flooring. In that case, polyurethane is the better option. 

If you are looking for a floor in California that is easier to install by yourself and doesn’t produce dangerous fumes, solid epoxies are a far better option.
