Today we are going to look at their tough garage floors!
Epoxy Garage Floor Coatings
To start with, every garage is different and as such, treated differently. Believe it or not, the concrete can vary from super hard to super soft. Huh? Super soft? So if I fall on it, I’ll be okay? Um, not quite but let’s not try.
In order to provide you with a quality garage floor epoxy finish, Tough Floors must first follow a process of preparing the concrete by diamond grinding and then priming if necessary.
When they diamond grind as part of our quality assurance process, the quality and hardness of your concrete is going to help them determine the right diamonds needed to prepare the slab.
If the concrete is too porous, they will prime first. Older slabs are generally the better ones to work with which is why they ask set questions to determine potential product needed.
Surface preparation is crucial to a quality job and although you are unlikely to see the preparation, your floor finish over the following years will be testament enough to the high quality of their preparation. It’s not the sexy part but all steps in their process are crucial to get right and must pass their standards before moving on.
A standard double garage is 36sqm and if all conditions are sound (this includes weather, temperature, concrete moisture and preparation), they will complete in two days. All items will need to be kept off for a further two days except cars. They need to remain out of the garage for a week after completion. Although the surface is dry, curing happens under the surface and an uncured coating could upset the tyres on your car, potentially creating a safety issue.
