Garage Floor Coatings
North Carolina doesn’t have the extreme temperatures of other parts of the country, but the NC weather still can take a toll on your garage floor. So can those various home improvement and auto projects. Simply changing your oil or mixing a gallon of paint can leave splotches, splatters, and stains for years.
Our combination polyurea and polyaspartic floor coating can keep your Durham garage flooring looking new for more than a decade with a durable finish that cleans easily. Adding effects such as colors or patterns to this surface hides everyday wear and tear. It also creates additional possibilities for using this space, such as turning one part of the garage into a workshop and another into a workout area.
Patio Floor Coatings
A concrete slab is an economical and sturdy option for backyard patio flooring but it can look dull against an otherwise cozy decor of plants, Adirondack chairs, and even a fire pit.
Our concrete flooring comes in several colors and textures that we can customize to blend in seamlessly with your home’s aesthetic. Whether it’s a concrete stain in rustic terracotta or other effects such as decorative textures, we can transform patios to look just like expensive marble, granite, or tile.
Best of all, our team installs this coating right on top of your existing patio floor, making this a one-day project instead of a lengthy and expensive renovation. Schedule our contractors to handle the job during one weekend, then entertain the neighbors during the next with delicious barbecue, good conversation, and stunning flooring that cleans up easily.
Pool Deck Coatings
During a typical NC summer, who doesn’t like enjoying the pool? Unfortunately, pool decks present a unique flooring problem because of their slippery—and, often, hot—surfaces. Untreated concrete pool decks also can experience water damage because they retain moisture, leading to unsightly cracks that could cause injuries.
Our polyurea coating provides a base for a polyaspartic topcoat, a combo that’s slip-resistant and slow to heat, even under the North Carolina sun. The neighbors and the kids can scamper and splash as much as they like without scalding any toes.
This formula also eliminates porous surfaces and cracks, making your concrete resistant to UV rays, chemicals such as chlorine, and other harsh conditions.
Best of all, you’ll have a choice of matching the flooring to your decor or turning it up a notch by introducing a concrete stain, pattern, or texture.
Epoxy Floor Coating
Epoxy flooring for homes has been a durable option for years but no longer creates the floors that NC consumers want. For starters, polyurea is roughly 98% more flexible and four times stronger than traditional epoxy flooring, so it will last longer under a pounding of NC snow in the winter and sizzling summer heat.
On a practical note, traditional epoxy also takes about six to eight days to cure, turning what sounds like a simple job into an inconvenient project. Our self-priming polyurea base and polyaspartic topcoat cure in just one day, so you can have the look you want for your home or business within 24 hours. That reduces labor costs, too.
How Does This Type of Concrete Flooring Work?
Every project is a bit different because we tailor each installation to the look our NC customers want for their homes or businesses. In general, though, here’s what you can expect:
After you choose a customized style, such as a solid color or a metallic, quartz, or marble texture, we’ll prepare the area using sanding, grinding, or blasting. We can even prep epoxy to change the current look in your business or home.
Reconstruction and Base Coat
We’ll smooth out everything, filling in cracks, pits, and other blemishes. Then, we’ll apply the self-priming polyurea basecoat.
Design and Scraping
We add color or texture through decorative chip flakes to naturally hide any imperfections. Once these layers cure, we scrape the area again to ensure it’s flat and smooth.
A Clear Finish
The clear polyaspartic topcoat seals and protects the area from UV rays, water damage, and other issues.
