Residential Concrete Flooring FAQs
Please click on the links below to view the FAQ answers
Why is it important to spend a good
deal of time preparing the cement?
More than 80% of coating failures can be attributed to improper preparation. Our
state of the art preparation allows us to offer some of the longest warranties
in the industry. Our DryPrep system uses diamond abrasives and carbide cutters
to effectively remove old paints and effectively prepare concrete surfaces.
Diamond abrasives flatten and smooth the surface, removing minor imperfections
and often leaving it in better condition than the original poured floor. A
separate dust collector allows the system to operate completely dust-free.
Can I personalize my garage?
Yes we can add your favorite team's logo, patterns, lines or multi-color
systems. Whatever you can dream we can do. Just give us a call we'd love to show
you what we can do.
How much does it cost?
The average 2 to 2 1/2 stall garage base cost starts at $2,000.00 and goes up
depending on the actual size and desired system. Upgrades to decorative mosaic
and decorative quartz as well as excessive repair may be additional. Larger jobs
the cost per square foot goes down relative to area..
How far do you travel?
We generally don't travel more than 30 miles from Grand Rapids as distance and
travel add to the installation cost. If you have a project farther than 30
miles, feel free to contact us and we can discuss the added costs involved.
How long does it take?
A typical garage takes two days for installation. During summer conditions it's
not unusual to complete a garage in one day.
How does your installation differ from
Preparation, preparation, preparation! Preparation combined with the use of
industrial grade materials, the same materials used throughout abusive
manufacturing environments. A D-I-Y kit can't provide the mechanical preparation
equipment and vacuum systems needed to properly clean the concrete and create a
mechanical profile suitable for high build coating installation.
Can you remove old floor paints?
With the use of our epoxy patch materials we fill all eroded areas in excess of
1/4 inch prior to the application of our finish coats.

How do I clean my garage floor?
In most cases a soft broom or leaf blower will take care of any dirt or leaves.
In the case of oil stains a dilution of simple green or household degreaser may
be required. Rust stains can be removed with CLR (Calcium Lime and Rust Remover)
or Rust Out cleaners available at your local hardware or grocery store.
Is there anything your garage floors
can't stand up to?
Yes, welding can create burn marks from the molten metal sparks that can be over
1,000 degrees F melting the resin. Some high performance racing tires can leave
tire marks from leaching chemicals left over from the vulcanization into the
coating. These tires generally have the speed rating of W, Y, and Z for speeds
in excess of 149 mph. In the rare case of these racing tires it is best to use
parking pads when storing. Please note sports cars such as Corvette's and
Porsche's with factory tires that are designed to be driven regularly have not
caused any issues.
GARAGE FLOOR TESTIMONIAL
Our epoxy garage floor is so pretty I didn't want to walk on it. After we got
the floor dirty, I couldn't believe how easy it was to clean.
