What type of coating systems do you use?
Garage Masters floor coating system is specifically designed for commercial and residential garage floor applications. The chemistry behind the system stems from industrial applications, for example aircraft hangers; therefore the durability is second to none with-standing the harshest chemicals these applications can be subjected to. Our floor coatings are extremely durable, chemical resistant, UV tolerant, non-slip and stain proof.
How do you prepare the floor?
We use high-tech commercial grade grinding machines to remove any existing coatings or contaminants and profile the concrete to prepare the floor for the coating. We never use any chemicals to prepare the garage floors, such as acid etching as this may change the natural characteristics of the concrete. By profiling the concrete we open up the pores to allow the base coat to wick into the concrete which is why our adhesion is backed with a lifetime warranty against peeling, chipping or bubbling.
My floor has cracks and imperfections. Does this matter?
All small cracks/imperfections will be repaired and this will be included in your free estimate. Any larger cracks or issues may be subject to additional charges.
My garage is full of stuff. Do I need to move out all of my items?
We do offer a removal and replace service. We do ask that all smaller items be removed by the customer, however, we can remove larger items like refrigerators, free standing cabinets etc.
How long does the process take and when can I put my car back in the garage?
Depending on whether you have an existing floor coating the process generally can take between 1 – 2 days. You can park your car back in your garage the next day.
What is the best way to clean and maintain my new garage floor?
The following are a few basic steps that we recommend for cleanng and caring for your epoxy coated garage floor:
- Vacuum, sweep floors or use a blower to remove any loose dirt etc. Use paper towels or rags to pick up large spills. You may wish to use a hose to rinse off the floor if you have a lot of dirt and debris prior to mopping.
- Prepare a cleaning solution for mopping the floor. You can use any general household cleaner such as Fabuloso or Mr. Clean at a rate of 1/2 cup per gallon (Do NOT use soap-based products as these leave a film and can become extremley slippy when wet).
- Once you apply the solution, use a mop with warm water to clean the floor and rinse frequently to rid you rmop of the accumulated dirt and your floor of the soapy residue. We have also found that steam mops do an excellent job also.
