It’s a common misconception that you can’t get a new garage floor coating in the winter months. This is simply untrue…provided you hire a professional that uses the right type of product. That’s where we come in – www.wrightchoiceepoxy.ca
With a polyaspartic floor coating, you have A LOT more flexibility in terms of when it can be applied. Year round use is just one of the many advantages that polyaspartic coatings have over epoxy coatings. Our COLD WEATHER product, made in Canada for harsh Canadian winters can be applied in temperatures as low as -30 celsius.
There is no need to wait until the weather warms up in the spring to enjoy the benefits of a beautiful, durable, chemical and stain resistance garage floor coating provides.
Here are some advantages of having your damaged floor rejuvenated with a polyaspartic garage floor coating in the winter….
Don’t have to wait for your Garage Floor
As many people wrongly assume they need to wait for warm weather to get their floors done, the lead time to book a garage floor project is shorter in the winter. Our team is not quite as overwhelmed as they are during the summer months.
Getting a polyaspartic garage floor coating in the winter provides the same level of quality as a floor that’s done in warmer weather.
-Impact and Abrasion resistance
-High resistance to most household chemicals and automotive fluids
-guaranteed not to blister, flake or peel
-beautiful range of available coloured decorative flakes
-orange-peel textured finish provides better traction
-aesthetic benefits and a huge impact on your garage’s overall look
Protect your floors from damaging road salt and preserve the lifespan of your concrete slab
Road salt brought into your garage from your vehicle during winter can take a real toll on your garage floor’s durability over a long period of time. The melted salt and water mixture gets down into the floors cracks and then refreezes when temperatures dip. This puts extra stress on the natural expansion and contraction of the slab. The floor will be more prone to cracking and any existing cracks will only get longer and deeper. Getting your floor coated can save your floor from the ravages of road salt.
Easier to Clean
A garage with a coating is easier to clean and maintain during the winter months and throughout the year.
As our product has an orange-peel finish, our coating also offers some slip resistant properties. (Always use caution on wet or slippery floors).
We start by preparing the concrete surface by grinding the floor with a DIAMOND TOOTH BLADE and by opening up any cracks. The grinding ensures the concrete is porous to ensure proper adhesion of the epoxy. We then completely clean and vacuum all concrete residue and dust. It is essential that the floor is spotless. This is the labour intensive part of the project. It is not a DIY step. We have special equipment for this stage.
Apply epoxy to the entire floor surface to fill the cracks in the concrete and use as the basecoat of polyaspartic. Then its time for the repairs! We fill any and all cracks, pitting, etc. with crack filler - to ensure a flat surface over the entire floor. Once dry, we grind down any imperfections - vacuum the residue and reapply where necessary.
Now it's time for the colour base coat. We add our custom colour pods in either a beige or grey tone to match your choice of colour flakes. Once applied and with the base coat still wet, we apply colour flakes onto the surface. Wright Choice Epoxy does a full broadcast of flakes. We spread the flakes generously to the entire surface until no more will stick to the basecoat. We leave that to soak in and dry then the next day once it has cured, we use a scrapper to remove any flakes that did not stick. We also use a blower and vacuum to gather all the excess colour flakes.
We use a Polyaspartic top over the entire surface in order to properly shield and seal the flakes between the layers. This Polyaspartic top coat 100% UV resistant and is scratch resistant. It holds up to our harsh weather from hot humid summers to cold damp winters. Let it dry and your garage is now transformed!
