Q: What is the difference between Garage Perfect’s polyaspartic floor system compared to Garage Perfect’s epoxy floor systems?
A: Here are some factors that you should consider when choosing between Polyaspartic Polyurea flooring and Epoxy:
The reason that Polyaspartic polyurea flooring system takes one day to cure is because the substance is absorbed into the floor system whereas epoxy rests on top of the concrete. In short Polyaspartic Flooring is Garage Perfect’s most recommended flooring type because of its durability as well as the installation time.
Q: Can you remove my failing epoxy floor?
A: By using an industrial grinder with a diamond tip we can grind down most failing floors into usable concrete that we can repair, fill and re-polish. We have to grind down the concrete to a bright white shade for maximum coating adhesion. Call our experienced professionals for more information or for a quote today at (613)288-9315
