1.What’s the difference between a professionally installed coating and the DIY kit at the home improvement store? The biggest difference between a professional coating and a do-it-yourself kit from the home improvement store is that the professional coating will provide longer lasting protection. Professional coatings are specifically designed to withstand heavy foot traffic, harsh chemicals, and other factors that cause wear and tear on floors. They are also applied in layers with specialized tools to ensure even coverage over large areas. Home improvement kits typically only contain one or two coats of product with minimal protective qualities compared to professionally installed coatings
2.Are there different types of epoxies? Yes, there are different types of epoxy floor coatings available. The type that you choose will depend on the needs of your project and/or facility. Epoxy resin is most commonly used for industrial and commercial applications due to its high durability and resistance to water, chemical spills, abrasions, impact wear, heat, cold and UV radiation. There are also specialty epoxies designed for specific applications such as decorative finishes or antibacterial surfaces. Additionally, there are self-leveling epoxies that can be used to create a seamless flooring surface without seams or gaps. Professional coating contractors can help you choose an appropriate type for your application requirements.
3.How do you prep the floor? Preparing the floor is an important step in concrete floor polishing. The surface needs to be completely clean, free of any dirt and grease, so it’s important to sweep and vacuum the area thoroughly. Once this is done, a diamond grinding machine should be used to grind down any irregularities or cracks on the surface. After that, a densifier can be applied to fill small pores and strengthen the concrete. Finally, a commercial-grade diamond impregnated pad should be used to polish the floor until it shines like glass!
The cost of a garage floor coating can vary depending on the size of your garage, the quality of materials used, and any additional services that may be needed. Generally speaking, you can expect anywhere from $2 to $5 per square foot for a basic coating. However, more substantial coatings can cost up to $20 or more per square foot. Ultimately, it’s best to consult with an experienced contractor for an estimate tailored to your needs.
