Although repairing that old garage floor may not be at the top of your renovation priority list, it is a project that can be finished quickly with the help of experienced concrete coatings contractors. The concrete floor repair offers a quick, efficient garage floor finishing service that restores your garage floor to its original beauty and smoothness.
Of course, there are a few things to think about before embarking on this journey. Coating your concrete presents a variety of problems, many of which are dependent on the current state of your concrete surfaces. They could comprise the following criteria:
- Concrete Resurfacing
Our garage floor coatings installer will need to carefully clean your concrete, regardless of its state, to remove oil and ground-in debris for effective adherence. Strippers, cleansing agents, mopping, and the use of a shop vacuum are all examples of this.
- Concrete Reconstruction
If your concrete has been damaged, it will need to be repaired so that the concrete coating can adhere to it. In addition, unstable flooring is dangerous to walk on and, even with a coating, will deteriorate over time.
- Surface Preparation
Most concrete surfaces will need to be prepared in order for the epoxy or polyurea product to adhere to them. To make the concrete more porous and smooth, a small bit of the top layer must be removed.
- Moisture Management
Concrete floors are sometimes found in places with a lot of humidity or moisture, which can be absorbed into the concrete and interfere with the concrete coating’s adhesion. Even mopping the floor or acid etching the floor leaves moisture behind that must be evaporated before we can continue with the coating process. To guarantee that the concrete remains dry, our workers will usually arrange your visit for a low-humidity, sunny day. They also utilize moisture meters to test the concrete, and if it isn’t dry enough, they will either reschedule, wait a little longer, or use air movers to assist in the drying process. It may be difficult to get your concrete surface dry enough for standard concrete coatings if it is in a basement or near a pool.
- Concrete Coatings Options
Solid Color Epoxy Concrete Coatings are an older type of coating that takes a few days to dry to the point where it can be walked on. For most households, this is a more cost-effective solution. Solid Color Polyurea Concrete Coatings is a more flexible concrete floor finish with better fracture and peel resistance. It’s also a fast-cure product that can be completed in a single day.
Consider hiring a professional to resurface your garage floor instead. Bring a professional and trained concrete coating installer to the job. A professional installation by one of the contractors will ensure that your floor is free of bubbling, peeling, and staining for years to come.
