Benefits of Polyaspartic Flooring ...
Could You Do It Yourself?
A high quality garage floor coating requires a great deal of prep work. The typical box store kit will generally only recommend an acid etch solution to prepare the floor for the coating. The acid etch may get the floor fairly clean, but it doesn’t even begin to take care of the sealant most concrete garage floors have.
Good prep work before the coating is applied is essential for a successful job. Our process includes:
- Diamond grinding the concrete floor to give it a profile that gives the coating something to attach to (an acid etch in most cases is simply not aggressive enough).
- Filling cracks and pits using professional grade materials to ensure a uniform look when the job is all done
- A thorough commercial cleaning to ensure the floor is free of any dust, debris, or fluids before applying the garage floor epoxy.
The average ‘big-box-store’ kit is usually a water based floor coating. DIY floor coating manufacturers use a water-based formula because it extends the pot life (the time you have to work with the coating) to make it easier to use for the average consumer. Most DIY kits are 50% or more water based. Once the floor dries, you’re left with a very thin coating that can take up to a week to cure.
Commercial epoxy floor coatings, like those we use, contain 100% solids. These require experienced installers, but the results are worth it. A professional flooring job will give you a nice, thick coating that will withstand the test of time. Plus you can have full use of your garage in 24 hours or less!
