Almost all of home owners are faced with concrete challenges such a cracking and deterioration. Concrete has been known to be an amazing structural product to build foundations, skyscrapers, and more, however, concrete is not a great wear surface and easily gets affected by road salts other contaminates.
Our Polymer Coating system is designed to protect your concrete and add a wear surface to keep your concrete strong.
Good preparation is key to achieve a long lasting finish. We utilize a number of preparation techniques including shot blasting, scarifying, and diamond grinding. Grinding is the preferred method of prep in most cases, as it aggressively removes surface material while leaving a smooth profile. Our Werkmaster grinding systems are considered among the best available in the world. The eight smaller diamond discs allow these machines to follow contours of the surface while maintaining a very high rate of production. All of our prep systems are designed with dust extraction systems to capture 99% of the dust created.
When it comes to fixing concrete, it is highly recommended only to use Epoxy or a similar resin repair products to repair the cracks and deterioration. We only use proven Epoxy Gels to repair all the cracks and deterioration and prevent lifting and allow for a flex and movement in the repaired area.
Most companies for the last 25 years have been using cementitious products such concrete fill, or even quick curing engineered concrete. The flaw in this method is the bond, concrete does not bond well with old concrete. Pressure from beneath the concrete pad, will push through and find the weakest point. It cost less to use cementitious products do perform concrete repairs than Epoxy Gels, however, it is a guaranteed future failure. This is why we use Epoxy repair Gels to fill all of the deterioration and cracks.
Once the concrete is ready, we will begin to apply an Epoxy base coat which cures within 8-12 hours. Our Epoxy is 100% solids and will not off-gas any harmful odor. We apply 1 Gallon per 150 square feet, which will give us 10-12 mils of coverage. Using Epoxy over quicker curing products allows for a longer soaking time and a much stronger bond.
The Flake Blends are a vinyl chip aggregate and is designed to add a slip resistant surface to the flooring system. Once the Epoxy basecoat is cured, we will scrape the floor and flatten the chips.
We have 6 standard colours of Flake blends available. Custom orders for a unique Flake Blend are available, and mock-ups are possible for booked projects.
The final step is to apply the wear surface. We use a Polycarbamide topcoat which is designed for mechanic shop floors. It is oil resistant, rust resistant, easy to clean and does not get affected by UV-Rays.
We apply the Polycarbamide topcoat at 1 Gallon per 125-135 square feet, which gives us a coverage of 12-14 mils and an overall thickness is 22-24 mils for the entire floor coating.
The next day the garage is ready to be used again!
What is the cost of an average two car garage?
Most companies charge anywhere from $6-$7/per square foot and the average two car garage is 484 square feet (22′ x 22′). At Complete Concrete Care, we quote the project based on the amount of work required for the job. We offer fair pricing based on the work required to ensure you have a long-lasting problem-free floor coating.
