Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What should I do with all my stuff in the garage ?
A. view this as a great time to spring clean the garage and clean everything out that you really do not use. Too many times we see valuable cars parked on the drive simply because the garage is full of junk. The items you want to save you can either place in the house or in the rear lanai area or you can rent a POD type system and have that placed on your driveway.
Q. Why do you have to diamond grind the floor ?
A. At the heart of any job the preparation is key to success. We dry diamond grind every floor that we are going to do an install on.
The reasons are to remove the top layer of contaminates but more importantly to put a profile into the concrete surface so that the resin has something to bite to.
Q. Will there be any dust ?
A. We use a powerful dust control system to minimize dust. But being honest there is always some dust that escapes. At the end of the day we are grinding concrete. After we have finished grinding we always vacuum the floor.
Q. How many days will it take to do the install ?
A. Dependent on the system and level you choose any where from 2 – 4 days. It is possible to do a complete install in 1 day using polyaspartic throughout the whole process.

A. You can walk on the floor the very next day, but we recommend staying off the floor for a day after completion.
