Garage Floor Coating Installation Process
The garage floor coating installation process must be completed precisely to ensure it’s protection from the region’s elements. Here are the stages that our installers complete:
- Our team will use the mechanical process of diamond grinding the entire surface
of the floor. The floor surface is ground down just enough to remove any
contaminants that have accumulated on the floor. This process also opens up the
pores of the concrete allowing the penetrating polymer base coat to soak in. The
diamond grinding is a dustless process in that the grinders are attached to our
industrial strength vac system. We have chosen diamond grinding over acid
washing because no harsh chemicals are used. With diamond grinding there is no
impact to the environment.
- Our installers will assess the garage floor to determine what repairs are needed
for cracks, spalls and pitted areas.
- After our installers complete the grinding process the floor is completely
vacuumed of any additional dust and debris. Our team will recheck and address
any additional cracks or spalls.
- After all prep work is finished only then does the application of our product
begin. The base coat is a thick mil, self leveling, penetrating polymer. After the
floor surface is covered, color flakes are hand broadcast to rejection. More color
flake is laid down than can be handled by the base coat to ensure complete
coverage. While curing, the color flakes will intertwine and embed themselves
into the base coat to create a multi layered structure.
- Once the base coat is cured our team will collect any excess color flakes, scrape
and profile the ones that remain. The floor is thoroughly vacuumed again.
- Finally, a polyurea/polyaspartic topcoat is applied which will encapsulate the
color flakes to create a seamless, slip resistant, protected surface. This topcoat is
the highest quality, longest lasting protection for your garage floor.
