Upon arrival, we will chase out any cracks with an angle grinder- with a V-blade-to clean and profile them. We will then fill them to overfull with an a high strength structural epoxy mixed with cabosil to thicken it.
We will unload our generators to provide Power to our commercial grade floor grinders, and remove the hard cap from the new concrete with 16 grit diamonds, either hard or soft bond- depending on your concrete. This will remove any surface contaminants or existing coatings. This process also flattens the area where the epoxy overfilled the cracks- for a seamless end product. (Please note: This crack filling scope goes for damage, not expansion joints- we have a few options for dealing with expansion joints: Some people choose to do the same process as our crack treatment for the expansion joints. Another option is to fill them after the floor installation with a matching flexible caulking. A lot of people opt to leave them open. Please let me know what you decide.)
We will mill into the concrete with 16 Grit diamonds. We will then de-dust and further prep the floor with a shot blaster to achieve a proper CSP for the desired coating.
All our equipment is dust free with our HEPA dust containment equipment. When I’m satisfied with the prep, we will mask off and coat the ‘cove’ area so we have nice clean lines on those vertical surfaces.
After the Cove is dry, will clean the floor again and apply moisture Vapor Barrier that holds back 25 pounds of vapor per square foot. The next day, we will use a base coat of a100% epoxy hybrid formulated for garages and broadcast the chosen vinyl flake from Torginol to full rejection. After the coating is cured, we will scrape and pick up the leftover material and apply a non yellowing, industrial grade polyaspartic for the finishing coat. Your process will take 2 days.
