Can You Coat Your Garage Floor in Cold Weather?

Can You Coat Your Garage Floor in Cold Weather?

As the cooler temps arrive, your attention naturally turns to those indoor projects on your to-do lists. For many, this includes cleaning out and organizing the garage, maybe getting it prepped for winter. Or, wrapping up some home maintenance projects that got lost in the shuffle during the busyness of summer.

This leads to a question we hear a lot this time of year: is it too late to coat your garage floor?

Cold Weather? No Sweat! Now Is a Perfect Time for Concrete Coatings

Our concrete floor coating system is unique in so many ways, standing out from older formulas that are a lot more finicky and temperamental.

One of the attributes we love most is the fact that it can be applied year round, even in freezing temperatures. Just to ensure that there are no complications, or unexpected snow drifts, we do know how to contain the space and regulate the temperature a bit. But overall, our coatings have no adhesion or curing issues in frigid air. Just another reason to love our polyurea coatings!

And here are a few more:

  • 4x stronger than epoxy coatings
  • Easy to clean and maintain
  • Slip-resistant
  • Ultra-durable
  • Stain-resistant
  • 15-year residential warranty!

Garage Design Ideas

This is a unique year for all of us, and home has taken on a whole new level of importance. And, so have the ways in which we utilize and maximize the spaces in our homes.

The right concrete coating can turn an unfinished space, like your garage, into a clean, bright, usable area. Maybe a portion could be used as a home gym, a rec room for the kids, or a much needed tool/crafting area.

There is so much potential, and a clean, professional floor coating makes it possible.

What Makes Our Flooring Great

Fast Installations

Our chip flooring can be installed in as little as one day by DC Generals’ trained and certified flooring experts.


The vinyl chips can be custom-blended into nearly any color, allowing your new floor coating to match your existing décor!


Made up of small vinyl chips, this flooring system finishes with a light, orange peel-like texture, adding slip resistance and extra grip to promote safe use.


Unlike an epoxy garage floor coating our chip system uses polyurea—a material that’s much stronger and more flexible

Penntek is an industry leader in concrete floor coatings for a reason. Choosing a Penntek coating installation from DC Generals means you can expect faster installations, customized styles, safety, durability, and integrity.

“I heard about the benefits of having my garage floor done by DC Generals Concrete Coatings, but the outcome exceeded my expectations! The garage looks 10x better and feels more like a living space now. No more oil stains since any new ones can be cleaned up. The job only took one day and it gave me an excuse to clean out my garage. I highly recommend DC Generals Concrete Coatings and their PennTek product. I will never own another house without having a PennTek garage.”
