Hummelstown garage needed some repairs & professional coatings
Installed Location: Hummelstown (Dauphin County), Pennsylvania
When Steve met with this homeowner, he knew we could help. The garage’s concrete slab had considerable pitting from road salt damage. Plus, it had a higher amount of cracking than normal, probably due to lack of any control joints. Top all that off with oil stains and tire marks, they had one ugly garage floor.
Steve explained that to make this look like our typical decorative chip, epoxy coating our crews would need an extra day to skim coat the damaged areas with an epoxy mortar. That mortar would cure overnight and then the crew would grind it flush with the existing concrete surface.
This garage also featured concrete steps, landing and stem walls (the vertical concrete rising to meet the drywall). Steve advised the homeowners to have us apply the chip finish to all horizontal, concrete surfaces and use a solid color (in this case gray) to all vertical surfaces. The contrast created by the two different styles of coatings makes it easier to see the walls when parking and the steps when entering the home.
Lastly, the homeowner didn’t want to see the chip blend on the aprons, so Steve suggested an all black coating – comprised of black epoxy and jet black flakes (with a polyaspartic mid and top layer – since this was a double broadcast of the black flakes to enhance UV resistance).
System Description: This 485 square foot garage floor coating is comprised of:
- Base coat: 100% solids, Medium Gray epoxy with full broadcast of flakes.
- Top coat: Clear Polyaspartic with 46 grit aluminum oxide
System Color: Adams Blend 1/4″
System Usage: This is a daily use garage with two vehicles driving and parking on the coatings.
