Does The Process Create A Lot Of Dust?

How Long Do I Have To Stay Off The Floor?
The floor will be ready to walk on in 6 hours but we suggest not moving any heavy items onto your floor (refrigerators, cars, etc.) for 24-48 hours.
What Type Of Warranty Do You Offer?
We offer a limited lifetime warranty backed by us. If anything goes wrong, we will fix it as long as you live in the home Other companies’ warranties may be backed by the manufacturer, which can make it really difficult to make a claim.
What If My Garage Floor Has Damaged Or Has Cracks In It?
We can resolve most chips, cracks and areas that may need leveling. We use a concrete mender that bonds to the cement and is five times stronger than concrete. It is very unlikely that a mended crack will crack again or disturb the finished coating.
How Does Your Product Compare To Other Products?
That is up to you depending on the results you desire, how long you would like the product to last, and the amount of money you want to spend. Painting your floor may be cheap ($1.75/sq-ft), but the surface can easily chip and fade soon after it is applied.
An epoxy floor coating is more expensive than painting ($3-$7/sq-ft), but is more durable. However, epoxy is likely to fade, discolor, turn yellow, and even crack since epoxy is not flexible.
Epoxy floors can take up to four days to install and seven days to fully cure before you can drive or put heavy equipment back on it. Epoxy also releases a significant amount of VOCs.
Our Method: Polyaspartic coating, is a “newer technology”. When using this method, you get unmatched strength and durability, as well as virtually no VOCs. Our coatings are generally in the same price range as epoxy floor coatings but are much more flexible than epoxy and 100%.
UV resistant – less likely to fade or yellow in direct sunlight. Our product is also more resistant to most types of chemicals which makes it a great solution for garages, commercial floors, and industrial applications. Hospitals love us because our coatings are 100% anti-microbial and 100% anti-bacterial resistant. Our coatings can be walked on in 6 hours and driven on as soon as 24-48 hours after installation.
Will My Floor Be Slippery?
Whether wet or dry, our floor coatings are slip-resistant and ideal for indoor (like workspaces) or outdoor (like patios and pools) scenarios. Although they look beautiful and shiny, the floors have a slight orange-peel texture that makes for a great gripping surface.

Excellent customer service! Very satisfied with the installation of our garage cabinets! Highly recommended, Jeff and Junior are awesome!
Incredible job! Very thorough… extremely punctual… And probably the only vendor I’ve ever used that has taken the time to absolutely clean all the cabinets they installed [and] vacuum out the entire garage… And really take their time to leave the place as if they were never here other than the fantastic garage floors and cabinets they install… Everything is centered everything is done to tremendous detail and these guys know exactly what they are doing… That is plainly obvious and I would recommend them to anyone.Daniel S.
