Spend 5 minutes in any garage flooring forum and you will find hundreds even thousands of posts from consumers and would be consumers regarding a garage floor epoxy or other garage floor coating system that has lifted, pealed or flaked. Almost without fail the consumer is told that they did not complete the floor preparation properly, they had a moisture issue or were in some other way at fault.
Garage Flooring LLC has released two new series of Polyurea Garage Floor Coatings and 100% Solid Garage Floor Epoxy and has made reducing if not eliminating failed DIY garage floor coatings its mission. "While there will always be consumer error, we are doing everything in our power to provide the best product and the most honest, complete set of install instructions available today. The problem, in my opinion is simple. We have two extremes. One set of products tells consumers to install the product over a 'properly prepared substrate' but makes no effort to tell the consumer what a properly prepared substrate is. The second extreme tells consumers that with little or no preparation, or through the use of pixie dust and orange juice they can get a perfect garage floor. Nothing could be further from the truth" states Justin Krauss of Garage Flooring LLC.
Many options are available for preparing a garage floor. Acid etching is widely used on newer concrete. Some products have their own etching product including many who offer product s which are comprised of less dangerous and more natural etching compounds. Historically, while etching is effective in many situations, it does not yield consistent results. Many professional garage flooring contractors chose to grind the floor, which removes old coatings and sealants, for a more consistent result . The surge in popularity of concrete coating products means quality affordable grinders are available to rent at most local rental stores.
According to the website http://www.garageflooringllc.com, preparing the garage floor for epoxy or other garage floor coating is the single most important step in creating that beautiful garage floor. Garage Flooring LLC makes installation instructions available in advance, via its website and explains exactly how to grind the garage floor, moisture test, install a liquid vapor barrier and or prime the garage floor.
Garage floor epoxy and coating products have also had another issue over the years. The products are typically higher in VOC content with an odor that can linger for months. "Most of the garages our customers are coating are attached to their home. The concept of having a headache inducing odor permeating the whole house and lingering in the garage is a major concern. We worked with world class chemists and coatings companies to create a product that will perform in the toughest conditions but has almost no VOC content and very little odor" added Krauss.
The new lines of garage floor coatings are not the only garage flooring products offered by Garage Flooring LLC. Garage Flooring LLC offers time proven alternatives to garage floor epoxy such as the BLT Garage Floor Mat which according the manufacturers website http://www.bltllc.com can be installed with no adhesive, no waiting, and no mess. Other options include garage floor tiles, and containment mat systems. Better Life Technology recently released seamless PVC garage flooring that has the look and feel of epoxy without the installation concerns.
