First, our epoxy garage floor installers will ask you to clean out your garage and clear out all belongings. In order to do a thorough job, we will need access to all of the floor space in your garage. If you need assistance clearing the space out, our team is happy to help. Working on a clean floor allows our epoxy materials to evenly coat the floor and bond to the concrete.
Next, we will grind the floor with a mechanical grinding machine. This machine is designed with diamond tooling, which opens up the pores in the concrete. This allows our basecoat to soak into the concrete and develop a strong bond. Our epoxy garage floor installers will ensure that the floor is completely smooth before we apply the basecoat.
The next step is to apply a base coat, which requires us to flood the floor with a high-grade epoxy. Then, we back roll it to make the basecoat level. Once we have a level basecoat, we can spread the vinyl flakes throughout the floor so you can enjoy a granite-textured aesthetic of your choice. Once this is spread, we let the basecoat sit overnight to allow it to bond with the substrate. Allowing an extra day for these bonds to form is a crucial part of our process, and it’s part of what makes our epoxy garage floor installers the best in the business.
The final touch is our epoxy topcoat, which is one of the strongest coating materials on the market. This topcoat is resistant to chemicals, impact, and wear and tear from weather changes. This topcoat will ensure your floor stays glossy and it will protect the concrete beneath.
