How exactly does the process work?
We start by diamond grinding the floor, which opens up the pores of the concrete. After fixing any surface cracks or small holes in the concrete, we apply the pigmented base coat by pouring it out, spreading it around with a squeegee & back-rolling it. The base coat penetrates down into the pores of the concrete. A full broadcast of 100% recycled vinyl chip (in your choice of colors) is applied. The floor is left to cure for 2 – 3 hours while the chip bonds with the base coat. We then lightly scrape the floor to knock off any loose chip, and the remaining loose chip is gathered up. The top coat, which is the same product as the base coat minus the pigment, is then applied in the same manner as the base coat. Because we use the same product for the base coat & the top coat, the 2 coats cross-link, locking the chip in and making the whole flooring system 10 times stronger than epoxy.
How long before I can use my garage after the floor is done?
You can walk on it in 4 hours, move items back into the garage in 6 hours and drive on it in as little as 24 hrs. (Cure time varies based on ambient temperatures & humidity levels)
What if my floor is cracked?
Hairline cracks will be filled in with basecoat and do not require special attention unless the crack is wide or deep. We patch all pits and cracks by utilizing a unique concrete patching compound, and then allow the patching compound to sufficiently cure and continue with the garage floor prep and detail.
What’s the difference between Polyurea, Polyaspartic and Epoxy?
Without going into a great deal of chemistry, the best answer is the Polyurea/Polyaspartic bonds much better and is a stronger, more durable coating. The Polyurea/polyaspartic is so durable, we back it with a lifetime warranty against peeling, delamination, color fading or floor failure due to workmanship or product failure under normal circumstances. We will also provide you with a free 2 year touch up service, should you accidentally drop a heavy or sharp tool or chip your floor by dropping an engine block on it (we are kidding here). Most Epoxy products only come with a 3-5 year warranty, if that.
Will acids be used to treat or prep my floor?
No, we prep your garage floor by using a diamond-head grinder, creating a better bonding surface than acid etching. Acid etching is also more harmful to the environment.
How do I clean the floor?
Simple warm water and household floor cleaner. Most spills will wipe right up.
Will all concreted areas in the garage be finished?
Yes at your request, we can do all the base areas as well as steps. We coat all exposed concrete in your garage.
Garage Cabinet FAQ
Will your cabinets be custom fit to my garage?
Yes, depending on the line of cabinets you chose. We have the top of the line cabinets which can be custom fit for your custom garage.
Are the cabinet free standing or wall mounted?
All cabinets are wall mounted, even the ones that are 6″ off the floor with feet.

All door & drawer edges are sealed and bound with 3mm banding for extra durability which helps to prevent moisture from getting inside, making it a durable, long-lasting cabinet. We have the perfect cabinet solutions for you.
How high does my ceiling need to be to allow for a car lift to store my cars?
Depends on the height of the car you are lifting. In most cases a 10′ ceiling is adequate for most cars.
Will city permits need to be pulled to customize my garage?
In most cases no. The only time we would need to pull a permit is for detailed electrical additions. We can address those if any during the quote process the first time we visit your garage. Car Lifts also are exempt from permits as most of our lifts are 110/115v and plug right into a current outlet in your garage.
Can I setup/install the lift myself?
Most definitely! Two guys can put up one of our Rotary 4-post lifts in 5-6 hours…depending on their wrench turning skills. Some of the parts like the runways and the columns can weigh over 100lbs…so if your back is shot or you just don’t want the hassle of putting it up, let us take care of it for you. We have installed many a lift. Our lifts do not have to be anchored to the floor due to the large foot print on each column, if you chose a caster kit for your lift it can be moved around your garage or wheeled out in the drive for work on those nice spring and fall afternoons.
What colors can I get my lift in?
The CCG-8 4-post and the motorcycle lifts all come in black only. 2-Post Lifts come in Black and Blue color.
Can I get my 4-post in 220V?
Yes on the Rotary Lifts this option is available.
If I want the lift mounted is that possible?
Yes as long as you have a concrete thickness of at least 4″ Motorcycle lifts of course are not mounted as they roll up as the lift is engaged.
Can I order rolling jacks or jack stands on my 4-post lift?
Manual Rolling Jacks are available for the CGW-8 lifts only. Sliding bottle jack stands are available with either lift. Sliding bottle jack stands are available with either lift.
