Frequently Asked Questions
What type of garage flooring does OGI install? Garage epoxy paint? DIY epoxy?
No, our garage flooring is a resinous hybrid polymer epoxy coating system. OGI flooring is a 3-layer system with high-grade polyaspartic epoxy basecoat primer, a broadcasted decorative flake layer and a topcoat of Polyaspartic Polyurea clear. Our polyaspartic epoxy coating system is also stain-resistant, so it is easy to clean. Furthermore, it offers five times the strength and flexibility of standard epoxy.
Other epoxy systems degrade and peel, OGI polyaspartic epoxy forms a permanent bond with the concrete flooring for maximum durability. OGI garage flooring, however, is UV stable and has low volatile organic compound (VOCs) compound, so it prevents yellowing and is environmentally friendly. There is a slight solvent smell to our topcoat. However, it will dissipate within 24 hours.
How thick is the flooring?
The OGI system is approximately 30 mils thick or about the thickness of a credit card.
How long will the polyaspartic epoxy last? Do I need to have it resealed?
OGI polymer coatings last between about 15 and 20 years before possibly needing another clear coat.
What kind of warranty does OGI offer?
We offer a 20-year warranty against peeling and delamination requiring no maintenance programs.
Will the floor coating adhere to vertical surfaces such as steps or foundation walls?
Yes, we can coat both steps and foundation walls. We will apply the system to vertical surfaces as we coat the floor, so you receive a sealed, seamless coating.
What is the cost of a standard 2 car garage?
We price the flooring by the square foot. A 2 car garage usually falls between $2900 and $3100.
What is the flooring made of?
The flooring has an epoxy base, a vinyl flake decorative coating and a sealed with Polyaspartic Polyurea topcoat resin.
How long does the installation take, when can I use my garage again?
Installation is a two-day process, with 48-hour dry time.
Do you provide storage or moving for the items in the garage?
We do not offer a portable storage unit. However, we can provide you with a vendor list. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to clear the garage and find storage for belongings prior to the day of installation.
How long does the estimate take?
Depending on the size of the area garage, estimates take about 30-60 minutes.
What is the lead time?
During our busier season, there could be a wait of 6-8. It depends on what time of year.
Can you give us a quote for our patio or basement as well?
We no longer provide estimates for the exterior of the home. However, we can look at the basement during the inspection and advise you from there.
