Quality garage floors have 3 things in common: 1) They look absolutely beautiful. 2) They stay down, meaning they do no peel, flake or show hot tire marks. 3) They have the perfect texture to allow easy cleaning and maintenance. To get a floor that has these 3 characteristics, there are 3 key elements that your floor installation company must have.
Key #1 - Proper Floor Prep
The first thing, is that the prepping process must be done right! This means that every square inch of the surface must be mechanically grinded. The installation crew must know the what various grinding bits do and which is best to use on your concrete surface. The final stage of prep is to vacuum the surface to remove all of the dust. At Lifetime Epoxy we use the best equipment available, Lavina Propane Grinders and Lavina Heavy-Duty Two Barrel Dust Control Vacuum Systems.
Key #2 - Skilled & Knowledgeable Installers
Applying floor base coatings, broadcasting flakes and applying a clearcoat can be done by anyone, but if you are not highly skilled, trained and experienced, the final product will be a total disappointment to the homeowner. Their is a high level of skill required to properly coat, flake and clear the surface to make it look beautiful and extremely durable.
Many times we are called to grind up and replace DIY BOX FLOOR KITS and even to replace floors installed by competitors less than 6 months later. The life expectancy of a new epoxy flooring company is just 11 months. You are either very good at what you do or you disappear. The fact that we have been in business for 10 years, proves we are very good at what we do.
Key #3 - and "quality" Quality Chemicals
The floor quality of a new garage floor also depends greatly on the quality of the chemicals being applied. Many young companies do not understand the importance of this fact, and they source and buy the cheapest chemicals they can source. At Lifetime Epoxy we do not believe there is such a thing as "cheap quality" In fact, we believe the words "Cheap" and "Quality" do not belong together.
