The shape of your existing concrete must be in a good. If you apply the new concrete over an old cracked one, the dents will have an effect on the newly installed concrete coating. The cracks can easily penetrate to the coating within a few days. A good installer will counter the crack’s transfer by using bond breakers like plastic sheets or sand layers between the old and the new concrete. By doing this, the slab will remain separated from the coating. Additionally, you can control cracks by placing crack control joints considerably where the problem lies. If your concrete is relatively thin, the crack control joint should be placed closer together than the depth’s full-width.

 

The newly installed concrete finish will not float over or slide off your concrete. This shouldn’t be a concern.

 

The time you take installing new coating concrete depends on the complexity and size of the project. For instance, a small project like basement flooring could take place within a week. More complex projects, like decorative concrete floors that involve multiple dye colors will take you a few weeks and even months. Notably, if your concrete is in good shape, it would make your work easier and reduce the timeline. But if it requires an extra time dedication to repair, it’s going to take an additional day or two to complete. 

 

Absolutely! Only your imagination would limit you.

You can finish concrete with an endless variety of patterns, texture, and colors. If you reach out to an experienced concrete finishing expert, they would help you choose all these possibilities from their gallery. Whether you need the perfect color to represent your brand or a pattern that matches your logo, there is an endless list of things you can do with concrete coatings.

One of the popular ways to add color and texture is combining a concrete base with exposed aggregates. You can float the colors and apply the second coating of color after stamping the surface. Many contractors improve real art by creating a decorative finish using their hands. Instead of stamping the board’s outline onto the concrete, they design the texture of the wood grain by hand and finally score the slab to resemble wood.

Very durable with proper installation and maintenance.

A well maintained concrete coating can last long depending on several things. First, you need to prepare your floor coating properly by mixing your ingredients accordingly. The product used should be durable and long-lasting. Secondly, install is expertly. And once your floor is up and functional, ensure you maintain is properly. If you’ve used epoxy, the maintenance processes won’t be an uphill task. All you need to do is keep your concrete coating free of dirt and debris, which you can remove through sweeping and mopping.

 

With these three factors in consideration, expect your floor to last as 15 years and more.

Several reasons cause concrete cracking.

The first one is wrong product ratios which leads to an already compromised concrete. The other reason is losing water during the curing process. As water dries up, it leaves behind the spaces it was occupying with air, causing the concrete to crack and eventually collapse.

You address concrete cracks by sealing them. The right way to do this is by scraping the crack to remove any loose dusts and debris. Exert some pressure as you scrape along the edges to make the crack wider and deeper to create enough room for the filler. Using some water, clean over the break as you remove the last bits of dust and then fill the gap using a stripping knife to ensure the filler gets into every nook and cranny. Do this from right to left and left to right for sufficient filling. Get the jointing tape the length of the crack and place it over the wet filler, and firmly squash it using the stripping knife. Make sure tape has no wrinkles or pumps. If you do it this way, you don’t have to worry about the cracks reappearing unless there’s too much load or maintenance is ignored.

The wrong way to address cracks is applying the filler directly over the crack before making it ready. Doing this is the main recipe for most reappearing cracks. Cracks reappear if they developed during the early stages of settlement and became ready-made movement joints.

Step 1: Prepare – the area that needs resurfacing should be prepared weeks before the resurfacing process. Clean and ensure there is no concrete or other debris around it.  We recommend using power washing for the complete removal of the loose concrete and any other fragments. If you are cleaning using soap, make the process thorough to make it clean.

Step 2: Repair – If there are cracks, chips, and scratches or any other damage on your concrete, make sure you repair them to get an even surface.

Step 3: Bond coating – bond coating guards the concrete against potential corrosion and other possible damages. Use it to avoid any future structural damages. 

Step 4: Resurfacing – Pour the resurfacing material over the area and distribute it evenly to smooth and even finish. After new concrete dries up, it will leave a smooth floor.

Step 5: Sealer coat – apply the finish or topcoat on your surfaces to protect your concrete from stains. Doing this protects also protects it during cleaning that involves fluids and chemicals that may corrode your floor. 

Step 6: Curing process – leave it for two to three days to cure without interference for an effective cure in preventing cracks.

“No tear out” means you don’t need to remove the original coat and redo the wiring and other structures when installing a new concrete coating. We can revise your existing concrete without messing with it to save time and still get equally good results. You also get to save money that you would otherwise use on removing the original coating.

Concrete staining is using stain as a floor finish.

Concrete stain is an acid or water-based substance that you spray over the surface of the washed concrete to become a permanent part of the floor. The stain can change in color and fade with time (particularly in the case of water), but the use of a sealer helps avoid this.

Acid based stains are reactive and forms a permanent bond with concrete once the result occurs, so it does not peel away. They are designed to penetrate the concrete surface and deposit their pigments in the open pores of concrete.

Polished concrete is what you get after a floor polishing processes. This surface is produced through use of machinery and chemical hardeners to grind, harden, and seal, which creates a reflective polished surface. An ideally polished floor is tough, long lasting and can work well in high traffic areas. That’s why they are used in industrial spaces and areas with heavy traffic.

Our 3 part epoxy garage floors takes place within a single day if there is no or minimal crack repair. The size and the number of workmen also contribute to how long the flooring project will take.

Depending on the type of epoxy floor system you need, the price can range anywhere from $5.00 to $13.00 per square foot. Standard flakes are at the low end and custom metallic epoxy is at the high end of the spectrum.
