Even though concrete is hard, it is still susceptible to damage from oil, grease, chemicals, cracking, mold, and mildew if not properly coated. A commercial coating will reduce dust and make the floor easier to clean and maintain. Additionally, some commercial applications, such as food service, require that all surfaces (including floors) be made of a cleanable material.
The garage floor kits available at big-box stores are designed for people who have never worked with a two-part chemical agent and who have not properly prepared the floor to accept the product. Therefore, the store-bought kit is adjusted to allow for a longer working time (pot life). As a result, the kit will not adhere to your concrete as well as a commercial coating will. In two years, you’ll be facing the cost of grinding off the old product and redoing your floor.
You get a perfect floor that you can enjoy for a lifetime! We will grind your floor to a consistent concrete surface profile (CSP) to remove any irregularities. This opens the pores of the concrete to allow for an even, consistent coating of the product. We will fill any cracks, spalls, or loose concrete to make sure the surface is perfect. We will apply a base coat (tinted to the color of your choosing, or clear) and then a top coat. If you desire any additives (i.e., multi-colored flakes, quarts, metallic or design work), that will be done before the top coat is applied.
Of course. We warrant your floor to be free from material defects and peeling (including hot tire pickup) from normal wear and tear for life (your life). If, during that time, it’s defective, we’ll fix it. However, if you gouge it, drag your equipment across it, or tear it up, you’re not covered for that. But we can come out and fix it for a reasonable rate.
While we’d love to have you be part of the crew, the prep work is the most critical part of the job. If it’s not done correctly or precisely, you’ll blame us when the floor peels up like a carpet. We already have all the equipment and supplies needed to make your floor look beautiful, so relax and let us handle it. If you’re looking for an excuse to get out of the house/office, you can always hang out with us and watch. We’ll swear that you were an invaluable resource and we couldn’t have done it without you!
For epoxy, urethane, or polyaspartic floors, almost none. Sweeping and an occasional mop whenever you feel it’s necessary is about all you’ll need to do. Acrylic floors will require a recoat about every 4-5 years to maintain their hi-gloss look. If you gouge your epoxy or urethane floor or damage the concrete in some way, give us a call—we can usually repair it quickly for a minimal charge.
Polyaspartic is a great solution for commercial and industrial situations where downtime is critical. However, for your garage floor, an epoxy base coat with a urethane top coat is just as strong and a bit more affordable. Epoxy/Urethane is a two-day process (versus a single day for Polyas
