Step 1: Diamond Grind & Repair Concrete
Proper preparation is the most important part of the process, ensuring that the underlying concrete and epoxy form the chemical and structural bonds necessary for a long-lasting floor coating.
Dust-Free Diamond Grind
First we diamond-grind the floors to clean and profile the surface.
It’s a dust-free process because our grinders are connected to a dust collection machine.
Profiling the surface allows the epoxy to penetrate into the concrete slab.
Patch Holes and Cracks
Next, we fill all cracks, holes, and imperfections in the concrete with an epoxy patching material.
Got major cracks in your concrete? Don’t worry, we can fix most cracks and holes.
Step 2: Apply Epoxy & Add Chip Flakes
Two coats of epoxy provide the base color and the structure of your garage floor coating, and chip flakes add color and provide traction.
Roll On Epoxy Primer Coat
The epoxy prime coat penetrates into the concrete and provides a foundation for the thicker intermediate coat.
We use an industrial-grade, low viscosity epoxy for maximum penetration and bonding with the concrete slab.
Roll On Intermediate Epoxy Coat
The intermediate epoxy coat is much thicker than the primer, and is tinted to match the base color of your floor.
For the intermediate coat, we use an industrial-grade, high solids / high build epoxy.
Apply Chip Flakes
While the epoxy is still wet, we carefully broadcast the chip flakes into the epoxy substrate.
Why chip flakes? Chip flakes provide traction and enhance a floor’s durability. They also add color and style to your floor.
Step 3: Apply Finishing Urethane Coat
Once the epoxy has dried, it’s time to finish the job with a urethane clear coat.
Roll On Urethane Clear Coat
The urethane clear coat forms a seal over the epoxy and flakes, giving the system a cleanable surface that shines. Urethane also provides chemical resistance.
We use a chemical-resistant aliphatic urethane for superior chemical and abrasion resistance.
