Residential Garage coatings

What’s Required to install a concrete coating, or Residential Garage coating?

First, we verify the Concrete can be coated with moisture detection software, as well as visual inspections. of course, we prefer to view the project. As sight unseen can be problematic on installation day, but not always.

All concrete coatings require some sort of preparation. in order to maintain performance and longevity. We require all coatings to be installed to the manufacture’s specification. This pertains to Epoxy coatings, Polyurea coatings, Polyaspartic coatings, etc… Failure to meet the manufactures specification can result in an untimely failure of materials. which could leave you with performance issues and a headache.

Let’s take a dive into the CSP [Concrete Surface Profile]. The standard CSP for and epoxy floor is 2-3. The 2-3 is generally attained by grinding the surface. Using a mechanical machine that scratches the surface with metal bonded diamond attachments. To get a higher CSP generally the floor requires shotblasting. In short, Shot Blasting is when a machine is filled with metal balls. The machine then mechanically shoots those metal balls against the ground as it is moved.

Application of Epoxy, Polyurea, Polyaspartic etc…

The application of concrete coatings depends on the materials to be used. This also depends on the materials to be used. For thin mill coatings used in a garage setting. Epoxy, Polyurea, and Polyaspartic. The tools we use vary from notch to flat blade, to flexible blade squeegee. At times trowels and gauge rakes can be used. However, this is generally an extreme circumstance or on a commercial setting. Each tool allows for an approximate gauge in coverage. Nothing beats some old school math, when calculating coverage rates. So, we measure the area to ensure the correct coverage that the manufacture states.
