Coating Concrete Stairs in Brookeville, MD

If you follow us on social media, you’ve likely seen all the garage floor coating work we’ve finished. We’ve coated a number of patios, walkways, and porches, too.

Today, let’s focus on a slightly more unique project: coating a set of stairs. We’ll look at the process first, then zoom in on the benefits.

How Do You Coat Concrete Steps?

Don’t worry… We’ll spare you the “one step at a time” joke. Although it is a good one.

First, just like every project we take on, it all starts with thorough surface preparation. Depending on the condition of the concrete, we can even add a specialized mender that fills gaps and cracks.

We then move on to the grinding phase, creating a smooth, receptive profile that’s ideal for coating adhesion. This translates to a much more secure, durable system overall.

Next, we apply the base coat, chips, and finally the polyaspartic topcoat.

What Are the Benefits of Coating Concrete Steps?

Not only is plain concrete not the most attractive, but it also can get slick!

Our 1-DAY concrete coatings offer the perfect solution, delivering exceptional style and a slip-resistant surface. If needed, we can even add more silica to your coating for extra traction.

Here are a few other key benefits to keep in mind:

  • 4x stronger than epoxy
  • Much more flexible
  • 15-year residential warranty
  • Impact-resistant
  • Will not fade, chip, or peel
  • Stain-resistant

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.

Customer Reviews

“Awesome service by DC Generals who did all that it took in working with my insurance company for teh proper assessment of the roof and property damage which resulted in a new roof. I highly recommend this company!”

“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.”
