What type of flooring system do you use?
We have a number of resinous polymer formulations of epoxy and polyaspartic. This allows us to address various concrete, temperature and humidity conditions as well as offer different aesthetic attributes in our decorative coatings systems.
How do you prepare the floor before coating it?
New or old we prepare the concrete mechanically using diamond tooling on a commercial grinder. This cleans the top surface and “opens the pores” of the concrete allowing our base coat to penetrate deeply for excellent adhesion. This process is typically considered to be the best method for obtaining a consistent surface profile and is superior to the acid was method used by others in the industry.
I have some cracks and heavy pitting caused by road salt. Can you repair this condition?
How long does the entire process take?
What do we do with all our garage “stuff” while the work is being done?
It is the homeowner’s responsibility to remove all contents. It is often stored under a tarp in the driveway or in a side yard or patio. As a chargeable options, we can arrange for a storage unit to be delivered and we can also empty the garage for you.
Are the coatings flammable? And what about the smell?
Our coatings are free of solvents. They are not flammable and although there is minimal odor, it’s non-hazardous to people, pets, and the environment.
