What type of coating systems do you use? Most companies just use Epoxy, don’t they?
PremierGarage® floor coating systems are a revolutionary new hybrid polymer chemistry manufactured exclusively for PremierGarage. PremierGarage systems are superior to Epoxy from the standpoint of installation time and return to service, UV resistance, abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, long-term durability, maintenance and shine.
My house is brand new. How will you prepare the floor before coating it?
We start by grinding any areas of concrete or stucco spillage, then oil and grease stains are treated and degreased. We then prepare the concrete to be coated by grinding the surface. Other companies acid etch or sandblast the concrete, which is not sufficient to create proper surface bonding.
I have some small cracks in my floor. What will be done with these?
All open cracks including those in your expansion or “tool” joints, if applicable, will be repaired. Additionally, larger surface imperfections will also be repaired. Extensive crack and/or patch repairs may be subject to additional charges.
How long does the entire process take and when can I put my car back in the garage?
The entire process takes two days. The first day we prep your floor if it's needed, apply the base coat and throw the color chip of your choice. The second day, we remove any excess chips and apply the top coat. We ask that you wait until the third day to walk on your floors, and the fourth day to park your cars back on it. The floor is still curing during this time and we want it to set properly.
What is the best method to clean my new floor?
We recommend mixing 5 – 6 ounces of CLEAR ammonia per gallon of water in a mop bucket. A large headed string/rag mop works best, with a wringer mechanism on your mop bucket. For PremierGarage fine chip systems, we recommend hosing the floor with a standard garden hose with spray nozzle attachment, then utilizing a foam squeegee (available from PremierGarage) to remove the excess water from the floor. Special Note: Do NOT use soap-based product as these leave a film which reduces the shine in the floor and can also become extremely slippery when the floor gets damp or wet.
How long will my floor last?
PremierGarage floor coating systems have a life expectancy of 10 years under normal use and with proper cleaning and care.
