What kind of surfaces can you coat?
We can coat most concrete surfaces: garages, basements, patios, walkways, pool surrounds etc. We do both commercial and industrial surfaces as well as residential.
What if I have an existing coating?
Our heavy diamond grinders can make fast work of almost any floor coverings including epoxies, urethanes, polyureas, and even vinyl and vinyl glues. Carpets have to be removed prior to the installation. To ensure the safety of our employees and the homeowners, we ask that asbestos testing be done on all glues, vinyl, and carpeting.
Will this prevent the growth of moss and mold?
Your new floor coating will be 100% nonporous so moss and mold have nowhere to hide! A simple wash will remove any moss or mold that appears. Our floors are 100% antimicrobial as a result of this easy to clean feature!
Can cracks in the concrete be repaired and coated over?
Yes, we have an awarding winning crack repair system that tightly bonds to the crack walls and fills in the voids all in about 15 minutes! We carefully prepare each crack by grinding out the crack, vacuuming all the excess dust and removing any loose pieces. This fast acting, durable concrete mender is then ground smooth to the rest of the floor and ready to receive your new coating all in 1 day!
Is the coatings surface slip resistant?
Absolutely! Safety is an amazing feature built right into the design of our floors. The decorative flakes create an orange peel texture that provides slip resistance. This texture meets and exceeds OSHA regulations. However, certain areas such as pool surrounds, steps, and other hazard prone spaces may require additional slip protection. We can help with that too! If slipping is a particular concern in an area, we will add traction to get the right protection you need without compromising the appearance.
What kind of warranty is provided?
Our lifetime residential warranty is directly from the manufacturer! Typical manufacturer product warranties are good for 1-2 years. We offer Penntek’s lifetime residential warranty against chipping, peeling and delamination and a lifetime warranty for UV protection against yellowing and fading. We expect our coatings to not only last, but to look good throughout its life!
How do you prepare the concrete surface before applying the coating?
We use heavy planetary diamond tooling connected to HEPA filtered vacuums to profile the surface of the concrete before applying our coating. This grinding process is important because it increases the surface area, opens up the pores of the concrete and allows the concrete coating to soak in and form a chemical bond to the concrete.
Is there a lasting odor to the product?
There is very little off-gassing during the curing process because we use premium products with the highest solids content. Our basecoat is 100% solids and our topcoat is 93% solids! You can expect a mild fruity odor to last a day or so depending upon your space's ability to be ventilated. Our Evolution chip system (flakes) is nontoxic, zero-VOC and safe for all residential and commercial applications.
