About Penntek Industrial Coatings
Penntek Industrial Coatings began in 2010, offering industrial-strength concrete coatings for commercial and residential use.
Founder Kyle Baynes started the company by installing his products himself. Now, Penntek partners with expert contractors across the country to install their products.
Penntek offers polyurea and polyaspartic two-step concrete coatings, epoxy concrete coatings, metallic coatings, concrete repair products, and more.
How Much Do Penntek Polyurea Coatings Cost?
Before starting any home remodeling project, one of the first things you want to know is how much it will cost.
A professional Penntek polyurea coating installation costs about $9 - $12 per square foot. This equates to about $4,750 - $5,250 for 500 square ft.
The cost of your project is dependent on a few factors, like
- The total square footage of your project
- The condition of your concrete
We understand this is more expensive than other coating types. It is important to understand what is included in your project, like the quality of the product, installation, and warranty.
The higher the quality of concrete coating, the more it will cost.
How Do Penntek Polyurea Coatings Perform?
After knowing how much your Penntek coating will cost, you want to know what features make it special.
How well do their polyurea coatings perform? How long do they last? Will they protect my concrete? Can they be installed in outdoor areas?
Let’s look at some of the performance and durability features of Penntek’s polyurea coatings.
Penntek’s polyurea coatings are made with a polyurea base coat, a layer of colored vinyl chips, and a polyaspartic topcoat. This combination makes the coating durable and flexible because polyurea and polyaspartics are polymers.
Their flexibility allows Penntek’s coatings to be impact-resistant, so they will not crack or chip under high impact.
With a polyaspartic topcoat, Penntek’s coatings will not shift or lift when exposed to high heat.
For example, epoxy coatings can melt and lift on a garage floor when you pull your car in from driving all day. The heat from the tires transfers and affects the epoxy coating.
This is not the case with Penntek coatings, making them ideal and durable for garage floor coatings.
If you want to add a Penntek coating to your outdoor patio, pool deck, driveway, or sidewalk, you won’t have to worry about color fading.
This means your outdoor coating will last under harsh sunlight and won’t fade or be affected by the heat.
The colored vinyl chips give Penntek coatings an orange peel-like texture, which aids with slip resistance. Penntek also offers a sand-like additive to make your coating even more slip-resistant.
This makes Penntek coatings ideal for outdoor areas, pool decks, or at-home gyms.
Penntek polyurea coatings are also stain-resistant.
No matter the spill, whether it be oil, water, or a suspicious liquid, you can easily clean it up with a traditional all-purpose cleaner.
Because of each feature outlined above, Penntek polyurea coatings are warranted to last for 15 years or more. This type of coating is worth investing in for a long-term homeowner.
What Design Options Do Penntek Coatings Offer?
Penntek offers a variety of colored chip blends that consist of three to four different colors to create an aesthetic combination.
Depending on your contractor for your project, you can also create a custom-colored chip blend with the colors of your choosing. Adding a pattern or logo to your coating is also an option.
With Southwest Exteriors, we offer custom colors and numerous customizable options for your concrete coating.
What Is Penntek’s Warranty?
Understanding a product’s warranty is crucial to know whether it will meet your needs for longevity or not.
Penntek Industrial Coatings ensure their products will not yellow or fade from UV rays for the lifetime of the original purchaser of the product.
When properly prepared and installed, chipping, peeling, separating, or delaminating are covered for 15 years post-installation. This includes interior, exterior, vertical, and horizontal surfaces, or essentially any coated surface.
This warranty also ensures that Penntek products will be free from defects under these conditions and perform without failure for 15 years.
If your coating must be replaced under warranty, Penntek will either issue a credit to the contractor for the cost of materials to be replaced or send the materials directly.
Exclusions in Penntek’s warranty include improper preparation of the surface and application, fire damage, slip accidents, abuse or neglect of the product, and violations of local codes and ordinances for application.
On top of Penntek’s 15-year product warranty, Southwest Exteriors’ warranty covers your new concrete coating for as long as you own your home.
