Transform your old concrete floors into durable, decorative floor to be proud of.
Have you noticed your unsealed Markham concrete garage floor cracking all the time?
There is a simple reason for this. Markham unsealed concrete garage floors tend toward cracks because of the porous nature of concrete. When Markham temperature drops in the winter, concrete contracts and pulls apart from itself, forming cracks. The cracks then shift in the summer when the temperature rises and the concrete expands.
There is a very simple solution to this problem and that’s epoxy garage flooring.
Epoxy is a flexible polymer resin (flexible plastic), that when poured over your concrete garage floor, fills in the cracks and seals the porous concrete material so that your garage is protected from the outside elements.
We use high-performance commercial-grade epoxy coatings that are guaranteed to protect your Markham garage flooring from cracking, chipping, tire marking, staining, and dusting. Because epoxy is slightly flexible and pours like a resin, it allows for natural flex without cracking at the same time, filling existing cracks, to create a smooth filled-in floor to be created. For extra peace of mind, we can add an anti-slip agent to the final coat to prevent slip and fall accidents.
Concrete floors on their own are strong, but porous, making them prone to staining and cracks. When high-performance epoxy coating is applied over your concrete garage floor, it will act as a bandage, protecting it from cracks, stains, tire marking/lifting, abrasion, peeling and dusting.
Epoxy cures to a seamless, non-porous surface. This means that liquids, dust and dirt cannot soak or get trapped into your floor. Cleaning spills and oil stains is as easy as kids play, needing just a mop and some mild detergent.
Epoxy coatings form an insulating layer between the cold concrete slab and your garage interior. This stops your garage floor from becoming a solid block of ice in winter. It will finally be possible to access your garage without dressing as going to an Arctic expedition. A well-insulated garage can also make it easier to start your vehicle with less warm-up time in the morning.
Every garage floor we do, we start with mechanically grinding the top layer of the concrete. This is to remove all dirt, grime, oil, and stains from the concrete and to achieve the correct profile for the epoxy to bond with the concrete slab.
We then move to repair any existing cracks, holes and imperfections in the floor. Once we are happy with the look of the concrete slab, we move to apply the first layer of a primer coat, which fills in any remaining cracks and creates a smooth, even floor surface to work with.
We then apply a base coat of epoxy, that forms a flexible and well-bonded floor layer. While the layer is still wet, we broadcast the decorative flakes onto the floor. The flakes come in a variety of colors and blends you can choose from and provide useful traction for an otherwise smooth poured floor.
The last step of your Markham garage floor is applying a high-performance polyaspartic clear coat, that is abrasion and chemical resistant, and safe for cars to drive on.
