Garage Living of Dallas/Fort Worth are capable of completing your flooring project is as little as one day. After we arrive on-site at approximately 8:30 a.m. and meet with the customer to explain our process and answer any questions, the transformation of their garage floor begins. The Garage Living pros have every type of equipment and material needed for the job on their mobile workshop trucks, which helps them maintain a high level of work efficiency. Our professional Floortex™ floor coating application process is outlined by The Garage Living 5 Steps.
Hairline cracks naturally occur on concrete pads. To fix this, we use a diamond cutting wheel to open up the cracks and then apply a polyurea joint filler. When the filler has cured in 10-15 minutes, we grind down the excess to leave a garage floor that’s completely smooth and showing no evidence of any cracks. At this point, the surface is ready for the base coat.
The base coat is a 2-component mix that includes the pigment which matches the pre-blended vinyl chips chosen by the customer. All vertical surfaces have the base coat applied by our crew using a rolling process, followed by the entire surface of the floor then being coated.
100% coverage is ensured by spreading three times the amount of Floortex™ flakes on the floor. Once the curing process has completed after 60 minutes, Garage Living of Dallas/Fort Worth ’s crew scrapes the floor with a flat metal-edge tool. This eliminates any standing flakes and leaves the floor with a surface that’s smooth, even, and ready for the final step.
The final step of the process involves a top coat application with a squeegee to achieve a finish that’s thick and even. This application is then back rolled, which ensures the consistency of the finish. After 8 hours, the top coat will have cured and foot traffic can resume in the garage. 24 hours is required for vehicle traffic to resume.
