Installed Location: Hanover in York County, Pennsylvania
Both of these garages had an acrylic Cure-N-Seal product applied to the concrete floors. Most likely, the sealer was applied right after the concrete was placed. Subsequently, the builder had applied DIY garage epoxy paint kits, which were doomed to fail for several reasons:
- the sealer was still present, which immediately creates a bond breaker
- the type of garage floor paint kit was the type found at big box stores which have poor adhesive and protective properties
Our crews were easily able to grind through both the floor paint kits and the sealers with our powerful, planetary grinders. Once surface preparation was complete, they completed any necessary crack fill and surface repairs.
The chip blends used on these two garages are newer to Stronghold Floors. We created the Loudoun blend for a customer in Hershey/Hummelstown area (PA) who used it in his detached garage/barn. It replaces failed “spray down” polyurea coatings, which the builder recommended at the time. This homeowner also has our coatings in his main, attached garage. The main garage has our Adams chip blend, which is essentially the Loudoun blend without the reddish flakes.
The Loudoun blend is placed on a gray epoxy binder coat. The Sullivan blend is placed on a tan epoxy binder coat. These chip blends are then sealed with our polyaspartic clear coatings.
