Flooring Key Benefits

An extensive range of standard and customizable options allow you to select a color blend based on your personal
preferences.

The finished product has a non-porous finish with no crevices to
trap dirt and grime. It is highly stain-resistant, even against high-
performance tires.

It is easy to keep clean with regular sweeping and an occasional rinse with a hose. When needed, tougher cleaning can be accomplished with ammonia and water or Simple Green.

The system is UV resistant and will not yellow over time.

Will not chip, peel or lift, even under hot tires and is rated for
commercial use.

We use a Polyaspartic topcoat that has been specifically tested and proven to be effective in both hot and cold climates. The elongation properties give the system it’s flexibility and offer a high resistance to impact, abrasion and hot temperatures.

We use only 100% Solid Epoxy or Polyurea base coat for our “foundational layer” because nothing penetrates the pores better or creates a stronger bond with the concrete. This ensures the floor will not blister or peel – even under the tires.

Beauty and durability: an attractive, high-quality floor that complements the design of your property.

We use a full broadcast of vinyl chips for both appearance and
added strength.

Our process is completed in as little as 1-2 Days, followed by a 24-hour cure time – getting your garage back in service quickly.

Other than cleaning, there is no regular maintenance required.

You receive a limited lifetime warranty – against lifting, chipping, or peeling for as long as you own your property.

We use mechanical grinders with diamond tooling for surface preparation which is the only way to ensure a proper bonding of
our system to the concrete.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We use industrial epoxies, polyureas and polyaspartics for the base coat. It is a technology proven over many years; nothing bonds better to your concrete to form a foundation for flake flooring. It is tested to delivery 2X the adhesion strength than DIY epoxy.  Our base materials are rated at over 7500 PSI, more than twice the strength of most concrete, so it actually strengths the surface.  For the topcoat, we use a Polyaspartic coating that is 98% more flexible than traditional epoxy so remains flexible even when cured to resist lifting, chipping and peeling. The specific product we use is optimized to resist staining, even from the plasticizers in high performance tires.

Generally, yes. We utilize a fast-curing polyurea patching system that works extremely well and is compatible with our other chemicals. This approach is used on all pitting, divots and cracks, with several layers being applied if the crack is particularly wide or deep. If you have areas where the concrete has shifted up or down, more extensive repairs may be necessary

Your residential garage floor coating is warrantied against lifting, chipping or peeling for as long as you own the property. Importantly, the guarantee from Encore Garage pretty much everything – we are not simply passing along a technical guarantee from our chemical manufacturers. Specific exceptions include high moisture vapor transmission, surface damage from acid spills (e.g. battery acid from a golf cart) and cuts/abrasions caused by power tools, forklifts, etc., as well as any failure of the underlying concrete structure.

New or old we always prepare the concrete through a mechanical abrasion procedure using high-powered diamond grinders. Depending on existing coatings and the condition of the concrete, we may take two or three passes to properly grind the floor. This removes some of the top surface and “opens the pores” of the concrete allowing our base coat to penetrate deeply for excellent adhesion. This process is typically considered to be an industry wide best practice for obtaining a consistent surface profile and is superior to the acid method used by others in the industry.

 

We offer both 1 and 2 day floor systems.  Our system utilizes a superior resin material with superior properties including those designed to cause curing based less on temperature and more on a specific chemical reaction.  This provide faster cure times along with better bonding strength.  Once completed you can walk on the floor 24 hours after completion and return your car to your garage within 48 hours.

 

Keeping loose dirt off the floor with a broom or blower is always a good idea. For a more thorough cleaning we recommend occasionally washing the floor with a solution of five parts water to one-part ammonia and a deck brush. Rinse off with a garden hose and use a foam squeegee to remove the excess water. To remove more stubborn dirt, we suggest using Simple Green as many traditional soaps and detergents can leave a buildup.

 

All garage floors can be slippery, especially when wet. Our standard decorative flake floor does result in an “orange peel” texture but is technically not to be considered “anti-slip”.  Therefore, we always broadcast a slip resistant “grip additive” into our top coat that mitigates the floor becoming too slippery. However, even with “grip additive”, the floor can still remain slippery when wet in some spots, so caution on wet floors is advised. For those interested in the best traction, clients can consider our quartz aggregate flooring system which is designed to meet anti-slip requirements even in commercial applications.

 

EncoreGarage has an arrangements with mobile storage providers for a small fee and some locations even offer FREE trailer storage.  We can have the container or trailer dropped it off up to one-week before your project begins and have it removed up to one-week after we are finished. If you prefer, for a nominal fee our crew will load and unload the trailer for you. Our crew can also help you move larger items such as refrigerators and store them under a tarp in the driveway or in a side yard or patio.

All of our resins are premium quality materials of a high solids content which means they are considered low odor.   However, low odor does not mean no odor so most installations will have some odor as it cures but is not toxic. It will typically dissipate in a day or two.

Unfortunately, that is not generally an option with our process. Many of our residential projects start with removing an existing coating because it has started to fail or is permanently stained. In most instances, the coating will grind off very easily.  It is always preferred to start with a pristine, freshly ground floor.  However, in some cases, if the original coating is a thicker epoxy system that is bonded extremely well to the concrete, we can just abrade over the existing coated surface an apply our base coat material over the existing system.

 

We typically schedule 2-4 weeks in advance and request a 30-50% deposit to reserve a spot our schedule. The balance is due upon completion of the work.  If you have any issues with the finished product our workmanship, we commit to returning within one-week to take care of everything and make sure you are 100% satisfied.

 

With proper care and normal use your floor should last for as long as you own the property.  Garage floor coating has shown one of the most satisfing investments you can make in your home.
