Yes, this is actually someone's garage and they just blow the floor clean with their leaf blower and give it the occasional mop and it still looks just like the day we installed it.
If you want long guarantees for your floor, you have to include diamond grinding as part of your preparation.
Actually we don't lay any epoxy floors without diamond grinding the slab first.
Others will tell you that acid washing the floor as a means for preparation is sufficient we totally disagree.
The only way to get a good mechanical bond between your slab and the epoxy can only be accomplished by diamond grinding and the deep scratching that it will give you.
Its all in the prep.
Any deep oil or grease stains are cleaned and then divited out to assure complete footing and adhesion over the stained markings.
Most cracking is filled with a two pack filler prior to epoxy applications to assure you a perfect finish product every time.
some serious cracking going on in this garage which will not be noticed once the floor is laid.
We guarantee that you wont see any prior slab cracking in our finish product, but we can not guarantee that the epoxy wont crack if your slab continues to crack through out its lifetime.
All our work areas are completely masked off and protected to assure you a perfect job with out any accidents that could disrupt another part of your house.
We use an environmentally friendly two packed water based coatings that are odour free, dry hard as steel for years of maintenance free garage floor care.
A picture of a few boxes of our coloured PVC chips that will be added to the base coat.
We coat our floors in 100% chip coverage, this means that there is about 20kgs of our PVC chips embedded in our epoxy base coat.
Which helps hide imperfections in the slab, strengthen the epoxy from brittleness, gives you R14 slip resistance and allows us to give you a great looking pattern for your garage floor.
Our epoxy coating process is a two day application, with the first day consisting of prep, and laying of base coat and chips.
The second day consisting of prep and the application of clear coats.
All our floors can be walked on with light floor traffic the day after applying the finish coats and can be driven on 7 days later.

When our team has finished an epoxy floor we leave your home and our worksite in a cleaner state than when we arrived.
This floor looks great as it is without the clear coats, but looks 100 times better once the clear coats are applied.
These clear coats are UV protected and will not fade in the sun, oil and grease will just wipe off giving you a clean floor area that you wouldn't think twice about letting the kids play on.

Everything is scrapped down prior to installation to get rid of any bumps or protrusions that can be seen later in the finished product.
A nice before and after shot, showing your average garage staining and a floor that will never stain like this again.the problem with open concrete is that it is unprotected and oil and grease absorb into the concrete and spreads out making your garage unbearable to look at and unthinkable to walk around on barefoot.
With a new epoxy floor you will never have to worry about this staining again as it all just wipes off with a cloth or mop, treat it just like an inside floor.
You just wont believe the difference once your new floor is laid.
Another before and after shot showing you what a difference a new floor can make.
