Garage Floor Coating FAQ

Our installation usually takes 1 full day, although some make take longer. Garages larger than 3
cars or that require a moisture barrier could take up to 2 days.

No, all of our tools are connected to industrial vacuums that have HEPA filters. This means we
are sucking up all the dust and debris as we work, leaving your garage as clean or cleaner than
when we started. We know you hired us to make your garage amazing, not dirty

We require that your garage is empty on the day of your appointment. If you need help with a specific item please let us know, as we may be able to help. Movers have also helped some of
our customers.

We require that your garage is empty on the day of your appointment. Our customers generally put their stuff in their yard or driveway for 1 night. If that isn’t an option, you could rent a trailer or a pod for a day or 2 so you can move you stuff into a secure space. Depending on the day of your job, we may have a trailer available for you.

The floor will be ready to walk on in 4 hours but we suggest not moving any heavy items onto your floor (refrigerators, cars, etc.) for 24 hours.

We offer a lifetime warranty backed by us. If anything goes wrong, we will fix it (see warranty sheet for details). Other companies’ warranties may be backed by the manufacturer, which can make it really difficult to make a claim.

We can resolve most chips, cracks and areas that may need leveling. We use a concrete mender that bonds to the cement and is five times stronger than concrete. It is very unlikely that a mended crack will crack again or disturb the finished coating.

Yes, we can do concrete just about anywhere, including outside. If you have a unique project like a basement, pool deck, restaurant, porch, or something else, we can likely help you. Our product is UV stable, which means it won’t fade or discolor over time, like some other products on the market.

That is up to you depending on the results you desire, how long you would like the product to last, and the amount of money you want to spend. Painting your floor may be cheap ($1.75/sq-ft), but the surface can easily chip and fade soon after it is applied.
An epoxy floor coating is more expensive than painting ($3-$7/sq-ft), but is more durable. However, epoxy is likely to fade, discolor, turn yellow, and even crack since epoxy is not flexible.
Epoxy floors can take up to four days to install and seven days to fully cure before you can drive
or put heavy equipment back on it. Epoxy also releases a significant amount of VOCs.
Our Method: Poly-aspartic coating, is a “newer technology”. When using this method, you get unmatched strength and durability, as well as virtually no VOCs. Our coatings are generally in the same price range as epoxy floor coatings but are much more flexible than epoxy and 100%
UV resistant – less likely to fade or yellow in direct sunlight. Our product is also more resistant to
most types of chemicals which makes it a great solution for garages, commercial floors, and
industrial applications. Hospitals love us because our coatings are 100% anti-microbial and 100% anti-bacterial resistant. Our coatings can be walked on in 4 hours and driven on as soon as 24 hours after installation.

Whether wet or dry, our floor coatings are slip-resistant and ideal for indoor (like workspaces) or outdoor (like patios and pools) scenarios. Although they look beautiful and shiny, the floors have a slight orange-peel texture that makes for a great gripping surface.

Epoxy Garage Floor Coatings faq

Epoxy garage floor coating is a durable and protective layer made from epoxy resin and hardeners that is applied to garage floors. It provides a strong and attractive surface that can withstand heavy use.

Epoxy coatings offer benefits such as increased durability, resistance to stains and chemicals, easy maintenance, improved aesthetics, and enhanced light reflection.

Epoxy coatings work well on concrete and cement-based floors. However, floors with moisture issues may require special attention before application.

With proper care and maintenance, epoxy coatings can last anywhere from 5 to 10 years or more.  This is why we prefer a polyaspartic coating, they last a lot longer!

Yes, epoxy coatings come in various colors and finishes. You can also add decorative elements like colored flakes or metallic pigments to achieve a personalized look.

The application process typically takes a few days, including preparation, coating application, and curing time.  This is why we use a polyaspartic coating with quicker curing times.  A typical garage is completed in 1 dy.

Most epoxy coatings require at least 24 to 72 hours of curing time before light foot traffic. Heavy objects and vehicles should be kept off for about a week.  Another reason we prefer a polyaspartic coating, plan on 24-36 hours before parking in garage.

Yes, epoxy coatings are known for their resistance to chemicals, oils, and stains, making them an ideal choice for garages.

Minor damages like scratches can often be repaired by applying a new coat of epoxy. Contact a professional to see what is needed.

Regular sweeping and occasional mopping with a gentle detergent are usually sufficient. Avoid harsh chemicals that could damage the epoxy finish.

Epoxy coatings can be slippery when wet. To enhance safety, consider using anti-slip additives in the topcoat or adding textured finishes.

Standard epoxy coatings might struggle with extreme temperatures, so specialized formulations may be required for climates with significant temperature variations.

In some cases, epoxy can be applied over existing coatings, but proper surface preparation is essential for adhesion.

Epoxy coatings can be removed through grinding or chemical stripping, but it can be a labor-intensive process.

Polyaspartic Garage Floor Coatings faq

Polyaspartic garage floor coating is a type of high-performance coating made from polyaspartic polyurea. It offers durability, chemical resistance, and quick curing times compared to traditional epoxy coatings.

Polyaspartic coatings offer benefits such as rapid cure times (typically in a single day), excellent durability, resistance to chemicals and abrasions, UV stability, and a glossy finish.

Surface preparation involves cleaning the floor thoroughly, repairing any damage or cracks, and ensuring the surface is free from contaminants for proper adhesion.

Polyaspartic coatings can adhere well to concrete, cement, and other suitable surfaces. Proper surface preparation is crucial for a successful application.

With proper care and maintenance, a polyaspartic coating can last around 20 years.

Yes, you can choose from a variety of colors, finishes, and even add decorative elements like flakes or metallic pigments for a unique look.

Polyaspartic coatings have a rapid cure time, usually within a day. This means you can return your garage to normal use quickly.

You can typically use your garage within 24 hours of the application of polyaspartic coating, making it a convenient option.

Yes, polyaspartic coatings are known for their exceptional resistance to chemicals, oils, and stains, making them ideal for garages.

Regular sweeping and mopping with a mild detergent should keep your floor looking great. Avoid harsh chemicals that could damage the coating.

Polyaspartic coatings can be slippery when wet. Incorporating an anti-slip additive into the topcoat can improve traction.

Polyaspartic coatings are known for their temperature tolerance and can be applied in various climates, including those with temperature fluctuations.

Unlike some coatings, polyaspartic coatings can be applied to slightly damp surfaces, making them more versatile in humid conditions.

Polyaspartic coatings are typically applied in a single layer due to their quick cure time. Consult with professionals for specific recommendations.

Polyaspartic coatings can be removed using mechanical methods, but it’s a labor-intensive process.
