The Basic Garage Floor is the least expensive of our Lifetime flooring options. It includes diamond-grinding the surface, and repairs of cracks and major damage (dime-sized and larger). It is a great coating for normal garage use, light shop activities, and more.
The base coat is 100% solids epoxy with a UV-agent that increases it’s UV-tolerance. It has a medium spread of decorative flake, giving it rich color and contrast to conceal imperfections in the concrete. The polyaspartic urethane top coat is UV-tolerant, and highly resistant to impact, abrasion, chemicals, and staining. We will use anti-skid aggregate in the top coat to make it less slippery.
1. Surface Preparation: The surface is prepared to receive the new coating by diamond grinding or shotblasting. This process removes foreign materials and creates a textured-profile for the coating to bond with. This method is far superior to acid-washing or the Diamabrush tool.
2. On the Basic option, we only repair cracks, and surface damage larger than a dime. Cracks will be almost invisible once the coating is finished. We will also bullnose the corners of the car stop and weather seals.
3. Next, we apply the UV-Resistant, Low-VOC, 100% solid epoxy basecoat, giving the floor lots of body, strength, and color. A random spread of decorative vinyl chip is broadcast into the wet epoxy, giving the floor good color and contrast, and helping to conceal dirt, debris, and imperfections.
5. The last step in this process is the clearcoat. Our Polyaspartic Urethane will provide a beautiful, glossy sheen that brings out the color in your floor. But more importantly, it provides a UV-tolerant layer of armor which is highly resistant to impact, abrasion, chemicals, and staining. Aluminum Oxide will be broadcast into the clearcoat to provide anti-skid properties and increased abrasion resistance.
