ABOUT US

In 1999 ConcreteRenewal was born. Our mission was to provide the most value based garage floor coating available. Colored Quartz quickly became our choice as durability could not be matched by resin only epoxy, urethane or polyaspartic products. The look of a Quartz-Based flooring is a measurable upgrade and the surface texture provided traction where others are slippery when wet or if sand/grit is present.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Sounds simple, 1)-clean the surface 2)-mix product 3)-apply coating, works great for painting walls but is that all there is for a successful garage floor coating?
Oils, grease, gasoline, antifreeze, road salts, water, sealers, laitance (unremoved surface layer), efflorescence (concrete dust) or foreign contaminants (dirt) remaining on or in the surface will significantly affect the ability of any coating to bond to the floor.
Now throw in the fact that you'll be driving a several thousand pound vehicle onto the surface, you will see why we make the surface preparation such an important part of a successful coating.

SERVICE / PRODUCT

At ConcreteRenewal we consider our work a service. Much of our time is spent preparing the project for the product. Since so much of our time is spend on labor the last thing we want to do is skimp on product quality. We combine one of natures hardest minerals (quartz) with high quality resins selected to work in this environment. As an independent company our flexibility to select product is not restricted. We have partnered with SIKA© Manufacturing to supply us with product. The advantage is to select the best resin chemistry for the environment it is going into. SIKA© is the largest industrial floor coating resin manufacturer in the world providing unmatched product and exceptional support...

Garage Floor Epoxy With garage floor epoxy, you can create the most durable and toughest flooring for your garage! Unlike traditional garage floor paint, which simply dries on the surface it is applied to, garage floor epoxy coating undergoes a chemical reaction which yields a thick coating that is 10x thicker than home-center type epoxy. 100% Solids Garage Floor Kits Garage floor epoxy is the most durable, highest performance coating that can be legally made and sold to the public. Contractor grade, now packaged for homeowner use. Epoxy Flooring: The Complete Guide Epoxies have long been one of the most popular and versatile floor coatings for virtually every type of commercial, institutional and industrial application. As such, epoxy floor coatings are available in a vast range of formulations, each of which can perform and handle differently. Epoxy resins are used in products designed to be primers, grout or build coats, and topcoats. Thus, a given multi-layered system can be made up of one or more unique epoxy floor coating products. What Is Epoxy Flooring? Epoxy flooring is a type of resinous flooring. In the mid-twentieth century, epoxy was the most successful resin used in flooring applications because of its durability and superior adhesive capabilities. Resinous flooring also includes methyl methacrylate (MMA), polyaspartic, polyester, polyurethane, and vinyl ester products. Each chemistry has their pros and cons. Types of Resinous Flooring No matter what resin chemistry is used, resinous flooring products fall into three basic types: Coatings (4-30 mils), Slurries (30-250 mils), and Mortars (125-250+ mils). Coatings are typically pure resins without any fillers, except for possible texture additives used to improve wear or increase slip resistance. Slurries incorporate a blend of aggregates to bulk up a resin, while still allowing for good flow and levelling during installation. Mortars utilize a high aggregate-to-resin ratio (5:1). The result is a stiff mixture that will not level or flow. “Damp sand” mortars require the highest applicator skill to install. The greater the thickness of the resinous flooring type, the greater the durability and resistance to abuse. Advantages & Disadvantages of Resinous Flooring Each chemistry will have its own set of advantages and disadvantages. For example, a vinyl ester has the highest chemical resistance but does not provide a desirable aesthetic value. Benefits of Resinous Flooring Resinous floor coatings bring significant advantages to commercial facilities, including: Offers excellent durability Protects substrate from chemicals and abuse Enhances facility aesthetics Provides added safety and slip-resistance Is easy to clean and maintain Resists staining Disadvantages of Epoxy Flooring A main disadvantage of epoxy flooring is that is requires greater surface preparation than what people outside the industry might expect. In fact, the number one reason for coating failure is lack of, or improper, surface preparation. Even if the resinous floor coating is installed perfectly, it won’t last long if the substrate preparation is inadequate. Another disadvantage of epoxy flooring is the potential for mixing errors. The final phase of chemistry in epoxy flooring is performed on the jobsite where part A is mixed with part B, setting off a thermal chemical reaction. The coating needs to be applied and finished within that coating’s working time. Because this final phase of chemistry is done on a jobsite, it is possible that mixing errors may occur. Therefore, working with a qualified installation contractor is the best route to success with epoxy flooring installations. Commercial Resinous Floor Coating Applications Some industries and facilities that benefit the most from resinous floor coatings includeSome industries and facilities that benefit the most from resinous floor coatings include: Aircraft Hangars Chemical Storage Clean Rooms Commercial Kitchens Food and Beverage Processing Manufacturing Mechanical Equipment Rooms Pharmaceutical Facilities Restrooms Secondary Containment Shop Floors Warehouses Epoxy Floor Coating Installation Basics Make sure the substrate is a suitable canvas to create your artwork. Decontamination: Degrease, grind, removal, etc. Create Surface Profile: Grind or shotblast the surface. The greater the thickness of the coating finish will require greater surface profile. Prime Coat: Application of a primer is designed to do two things, promote adhesion and seal the substrate. If it doesn’t seal the substrate, the following coatings will outgas leaving bubbles or voids. Squeegee and back-rolling is the preferred method. Squeegee application will help fill voids in the substrate. Back-rolling evens out the squeegee application. Intermediate Coat: The intermediate coat will usually be where the majority of the thickness will come from, most often consisting of cheaper resins filled with aggregate to extend the coverage. This step can be a coating, slurry, or mortar. A coating or slurry can be broadcasted with an aggregate for additional build and texture. Finish Coat: The finish coat typically consists of resins with greater chemical and/or UV resistance to provide the greatest aesthetics. Options can include smooth, stippled, satin, etc. Resinous Flooring Maintenance – An Overview Properly maintaining a finished resinous floor is crucial to achieving the longest life span. Dirt and debris that gets tracked in will abrade the surface overtime with routine traffic. Sweeping and mopping the floors will keep them looking good for many years. Occasionally, degreasing as needed will keep contaminates from building up on the floors. Most areas can be easily cleaned by mopping with water and a pH neutral cleaner. Longevity of Epoxy Floors If the resinous floor is designed correctly for the anticipated traffic and abuse exposures, it should last ten years or greater. However, due to budget, limited time available required during installation, or if the abuse was greater than anticipated during the design, this isn’t always the case. The term “Value Engineered” is often used to modify a coating system to meet a budget and/or time restraint. When this happens, you should expect some type of compromise in aesthetics, durability, and/or longevity. It is important to note that resinous flooring is one of the few floor finishes that does not have to be removed and replaced when it gets old; old floor can be rejuvenated by installing another finish coat. In other words, the old floor doesn’t have to go into a landfill like other flooring such as carpet, sheet vinyl, VCT, etc. The Industry-Leading Epoxy Flooring Manufacturer Approved installers will ensure your epoxy flooring is designed and applied according to your needs and specifications.

Epoxy flooring is a safe, durable, low-maintenance flooring option for commercial and industrial facilities where both durability and aesthetics are important. How thick is epoxy floor coating? Most epoxy and resinous floor coatings range from 10-250 mils. How do you maintain an epoxy floor? Mopping with water and occasionally a pH neutral cleaner is usually enough to keep epoxy floor looking new. Heavy soiling may call for scrubbing with a heavy-duty degreaser followed by water rinse. Do epoxy floors scratch easily? Epoxy resins are typically very hard and can scratch fairly easily. We address this by using a finish coat with higher abrasion resistance, such as a polyurethane—and we can even add an abrasion-resistant additive to improve the scratch resistance. Do epoxy floors crack? Most epoxy floor cracking is caused by the concrete substrate cracking. The coating system is only as good as the integrity of the substrate. There are ways to mitigate substrate cracking by correctly detailing the cracks and using flexible resins to bridge the movement. Is epoxy flooring slippery when wet? Smooth resinous or epoxy floors can become slippery when wet. However, texture is added to provide skid resistance. The slip resistance can be customized many ways to achieve a safe surface while keeping it easy to clean. Does epoxy stop moisture? Most epoxies have a very low perm rating, meaning that they do stop the passage of moisture. However, moisture vapor emission (MVE) is very problematic for most resinous flooring. It would be best to consult with your High Performance Flooring (HPF) representative to help create a solution based on your particular job site conditions. Is epoxy flooring waterproof? Epoxy is waterproof. However, if the concrete moves and cracks, it will telegraph the crack through a ridged coating system. We utilize flexible resins as the base layer for areas that require waterproofing. Is epoxy flooring cost effective? Epoxy flooring is very cost competitive when compared to other floor finishes. If the coating system is designed correctly, it can actually lower the cost of cleaning and maintaining the floor. Which is better, epoxy or tiles? Epoxy flooring provides a more sanitary environment compared to tile. Epoxy completely seals the concrete surface, whereas tile is adhered to the surface with a setting mud or adhesive. This adhesive does not stop moisture permeation and can harbor bacteria under the tile and in the grout joints. Is epoxy flooring cheaper than tile? Epoxy flooring is usually slightly more to install than VCT, but it is cheaper than ceramic tile. Epoxy flooring also offers additional cost benefits that tile flooring does not such as lower maintenance. Can you epoxy over damaged concrete? Most coating system can be used to restore or repair damaged concrete. Repair materials and methods should be discussed with your HPF representative for the best results. Can you put new epoxy over old epoxy? A well bonded epoxy floor can be recoated with proper cleaning and creation of the surface profile. However, there are a few resin chemistries that cannot be mixed with others. If you do not know what the chemistry is of the current floor coating, it is best to consult with you HPF representative to prevent making a mistake. How much does epoxy flooring cost? There are many different types of resinous and epoxy flooring options, from a 2-coat application all the way up to 3/8” terrazzo, ranging $3-30 per square foot. The number of coats, overall thickness, design details, and the type of chemistry will all play a factor in the total cost. Garage floor epoxy is resistant to moisture, dirt, chemicals, and salts, making it ideal for those living in climates where rain and snow are common. Further, a garage floor coating also acts as a sealer, thus making dusty garages a thing of the past. Your garage will be safer, cleaner, and much easier to clean.
