Texas – The Perfect Environment for Crack Formation

Like most garage floors, this particular job site didn’t have any type of protective coating on the floor surface. Just exposed concrete. This is builder grade material and if you go out to purchase a home today, you’re 99% likely to wind up with this type of surface in your garage. Additionally, if you’ve owned a home previously, you familiar with floor stains and how easy they are to acquire. Whether it’s an oil leak from your car, a spilled can of paint, some dirty tools or just wear and tear over time – exposed concrete floors don’t hold up well over time.

In addition, you’ve always got to add in the factor of slight ground movement. Texas is the best state in America (nobody is arguing that) but we have some HOT summers and COLD winters. All of this variation in our ambient air temperature causes the soils beneath our homes to expand and contract.

These changes in air temperature drive expansion and contraction beneath the slabs of our home. Compound this with periods of dryness or wetness (due to heavy Spring rains) and you’ve got an environment that is perfect for concrete crack formations. This garage was no exception and our client had lots of hairline cracks spreading the surface of their garage floor. Luckily, we’ve got the perfect treatment option for floors with cracks so we performed some crack repair and treatment prior to moving forward with our installation.

Crack Repair & Surface Treatment

In order for us to patch and smooth our this concrete surface, we applied our CR Mender – developed by Penntek Coatings. This product works exceptionally well for filling in a wide array of crack sizes to create a smooth surface finish. It works by filling the voids left from cracks to create a surface that is two-times stronger than standard concrete. Once applied, we putty knife the finish to create a smooth layer with unnoticeable deviation from our concrete surface to the CR Mender product.

Our 1 Day Coatings applicators want our product to last for years to come: 15-years (Residential) & 5-years (Commercials) to be exact. That’s the timeframe for our exceptional warranty and we stand behind our products throughout the lifetime of your warranty policy with us! In order for our applications to hold up for these durations of time, we thoroughly inspect your concrete surfaces for imperfections to perform all types of repairs prior to applying our 1 Day Coatings products!

This is our way of insuring our client satisfaction and the optimal performance of our Polyurea floor coatings. By thoroughly evaluating the concrete surface, we identify and patch all of the existing cracks – providing our crews with a stronger and more durable surface than what was previously there.

Applying The Pecan Color

At 1 Day Coatings, we have a strong lineup of pre-assorted color selections that you can view on our Chip Color page! We have lots of clients who love the color selections that we already have picked up. Of course, you always have the option of customizing your color blend. After all, we are working with Vinyl Chip Flakes and there are literally hundreds of vinyl chip flake colors to choose from. But for this installation, our client was happy to go with the Pecan color chip, as seen on our images.

In order to prepare our concrete surfaces for the application of our Vinyl Chip Flakes, we first follow these steps:

  • Mechanically Grind the concrete surface to expose a fresh layer of concrete
  • Vacuum and remove all dust and debris
  • Identify & Treat all Surface Cracks with CR Mender or CR Patch & Coat
  • Apply Polyurea Base Coat across entire concrete surface

These steps sound simple, and they certainly are. However, the trick comes to the level of detail that we perform for each installation.

As you might image, our Polyurea Floor Coatings “adhere” to your concrete surface. In order for us to create the optimal level of adhesion, we have to first properly “prep” our concrete surface and remove all forms of dust, debris and repair the surface. Once “prepped” our teams apply our Polyurea Basecoat to create our first layer of adhesion to the concrete surface. From here, we broadcast our Chip Flake Selections across the fresh Polyurea Basecoat to create our color blend.

Garage Floor Remodel – Lawton, OK

Garage Floor Remodel – Lawton, OK

How would you define a “man cave?” According to the Oxford Dictionary, a man cave can be defined as “a room or other part of a home used by a man as a place to relax and pursue hobbies away from the rest of the family.” Generally speaking, man caves are limited to just the garage. In such habitats, men can be spotted working and sweating outside in a space designed for loud music, car maintenance and home repairs.

For generations, such spaces have been limited to elbow grease, an old stereo and cold beer. Nowadays, however, men are evolving into sophisticated creatures that enjoy the finer necessities of life. Air conditioning, an outdoor refrigerator, high end work benches and power tools – what’s left to be desired by the male breed?

If we may be so bold – we suggest upgrading the floor of that man cave from a dirty, oil stained concrete floor to a high end and beautiful Polyurea floor coating! Women – you’ll be proud of your new, beautiful garage floor and feel peace of mind knowing that he can’t stain or damage his “approved” play area of the home. You now have much greater control of his outdoor environment and he will presume that the floor coating was always his idea.

This is classified as a “win win” in modern Psychology and leaves both parties feeling content with their purchase decision. Take our advice – buy your man a upgraded floor coating. Your house, garage and man will thank you **(remember the key point – let them think it was still their idea).

Prior to installing any of our Polyurea floor systems – we always take diligent care to “prep” our concrete surface. This involves mechanically grinding your concrete surface to remove the top layer of concrete and expose a fresh aggregate for adhesion to our Polyurea Base coat.

The Cost of Floor Decals: Old School versus New School

Men, are you a proud fan of a sports team or the creator of a business that you want to represent? As you might’ve guessed, adding a floor logo to your concrete floors is a great way to show off your pride and boost the “cool factor” of your man cave! However, prior to the creation our revolutionary Polyurea Floor Coatings (developed by Penntek Coatings) installing a floor decal was expensive and difficult.

The old school method of installing a floor decal required the use of powered hand tools to etch a design into the concrete surface. During this process, the floor needed to be carefully etched (because any etch is a permanent engraving in a concrete surface). After creating the lines of the design, the concrete artisan then stained the concrete surface with various dyes and pigmentation. The design had to then cure and be sealed for long lasting protection.

As you might’ve guessed, this process is very time consuming and you’re paying for a all of the time required for that concrete artisan to install his design. This high price tag is often out of reach for most residential projects – hence the need for an alternative product…

One amazing benefit of our Vinyl Chip System is our ability to apply Vinyl Decals. These decals are great ways to customize your Polyurea floor coating! These decorative pieces are protected by our Polyurea Top Coat – which provides long lasting protection for your entire flooring system!

Our Method is Much Cheaper and Faster

Luckily, our method of installing a floor logo is simpler and much more cost effective. Because our products are installed in 3 steps: Polyurea Base Coat, Vinyl Chip Flakes & Polyurea Top Coatwe can install floor logos seamlessly without slowing down our installation crews. How do we do it?

As seen in our images from this Garage Floor Remodel – our teams install a vinyl decal right on top of our Vinyl Chip Flakes (before sealing the floors with the Polyurea Top Coat). All we need is the Vinyl Decal to lay onto our Vinyl Chip Flake (prior to sealing with our Top Coat). It’s as easy as that!

Designed With a High Level of Durability

Essentially we are just adding another Vinyl component to our Vinyl Chip Flake process. Why do we put so much emphasis on Vinyl components? Well, for starters, our floor are designed to retain a high level of flexibility throughout the lifetime of our floors. Our floors are capable of being mended and repaired – even years after their installation.

We put so much faith in our floor products that we offer a 15-year residential & 5-year commercial warranty on all Polyurea floor installations. This is an unheard of guarantee in our industry. It’s our way to insuring that our clients receive the maximum level of protection. It’s also our way of delivering the highest quality service for floors that are designed to out last and out perform the competition!

A Stunning Sports Car Garage

A Stunning Sports Car Garage

We’re not sure if we like the floors more or the sports cars! When we envision a garage full of beautiful automobiles, it only makes sense to us that the garage looks just as attractive and professional as the garage you see here! For a car advocate, one thing is certain: attention to detail and cleanliness are critical! It’s safe to say that this home owner feels good tucking his automobile babies in at night upon this newly installed Black and Red Polyurea floor coating!

We were giddy when we received this phone call! The chance to apply our floor coating on a garage that is beautiful is a perfect way to showcase our products. Designed for all types of concrete applications, ranging from garage floors to outdoor patios and even commercial facilities – our Polyurea System is the real deal!

Developed by Penntek Coatings, our Polyurea Floor Coating consists of a Vinyl Chip Flake layer (the pretty colored vinyl chips) plus a Polyurea Top Coat. Together, these two layers (plus the Polyurea Base coat) create a nearly impenetrable barrier between the concrete beneath and the life that happens on top! From housing gorgeous sports cars to a mechanic shop that changes the tires, our Polyurea floor coating system can handle it all! If you’re on the market to look for a floor coating that is as tough as you are – you’ve come to the right place!

No More DIY Epoxy Kits – Use a Product That Actually Works!

Ugh, to say that we’re tired of seeing one home owner after another apply a DIY (do it yourself) Epoxy Kit would be an understatement. These kits overpromise their abilities and have very specific standards for their applications. Oftentimes home owners think they can apply these kits themselves and that the application will work as smoothly as the YouTube video that shows it being installed.

Often the results are far less worthy to be bragged about than the video led you to believe. Often these epoxy kits (once applied) are near impossible to remove without mechanical abrasion and you’re lucky if you can walk away with a floor that looks halfway decent. From etched concrete surfaces from applying muriatic acid (hopefully surrounding areas don’t get damaged) to pock-marked coloring – epoxy kits perform far worse than they are advertised.

Luckily there is a solution to this maddening problem – call 1 Day Coatings to remove the epoxy nightmare and replace it with our professional developed and applied Polyurea floor coating system! Our products are designed by professionals for professional installation. In fact, we are one of a few Penntek Dealers in North Texas and we have been professional trained and certified by this manufacturer to warranty our products after installations.

Our Product Actually Adheres to Concrete

So what’s the hype about our products and why are so many people switching over to it? Well, for starters – our products work by actually adhering to the concrete substrate. Did you catch the part about the muriatic acid etching (above)? That’s right! Epoxy DIY Kits actually require their users to apply muriatic acid (without professional training) to create an etched surface so their products can adhere to that concrete surface. Yikes!

Luckily that’s not the recipe for the success of our products! Instead, we mechanically treat our concrete surfaces with a commercial floor grinder to remove the top layer of concrete and expose a fresh layer – free of dust, oils or contaminates. From there we apply our Polyurea Base Coat and allow the two entities to chemically bond together.

This is all a part of one smooth process and happens rapidly. So fast in fact that we can apply all 3 layers of our products: Base Coat, Vinyl Chip Flakes & Top Coat in just *one day (for average sized residential garages).

*It’s important to note that large residential or commercial applications may require more than one day for installation.

Custom Color Options: Blue Slate Stone

Here we’re showcasing a custom floor color that we designed and installed in a Fort Worth home. This garage had a nice spacious setting with broom finished concrete floors. Broom finished concrete floors are a common surface that we encounter. Home builders “upgrade” your home to them as an added benefit but they really don’t add any value to your home. Exposed concrete is susceptible to life and often cracks, stains, wear down, and look older with time.

Our team flipped this living space in just one day to bring out a beautiful & custom slate stone blue flooring system. This color option is part of our custom series (an option that we provide all of our customers). If you’re new to following 1 Day Coatings, this is a great time for you to browse our standard Color Options. It’s also a great opportunity to disclose – our colors are comprised of 100% Vinyl Chip Flakes. That means it’s also 100% customizable. Simply let us know what color of flakes you’d like to choose (we give you the complete lineup) and voila – your new industrial floors represent you and your lifestyle!

This is a great added value that our clients love. No longer do you have to go with colors that a flooring company tells you. No sir! Instead, you have the complete power to be you and represent your home, life, business, collegiate team or whatever makes you happy!

Repairing The Cracks & Crude Broom Finish

Aside from giving you 100% control over the color of your floors, we also repair the existing concrete surface before every installation. This is a crucial step that we don’t skip over. We take the time to expose a fresh concrete surface by using our commercial floor grinder to expose fresh aggregate.

We also clean out any material that might prevent a complete bond to our polyurea basecoat. This means removing all forms of elastic joint sealants, repairing cracks, filling joints and sanding down our surface. Our objective here is to develop a clean and essentially “sterilized” substrate for our products to adhere to. This is a classic misstep that inexperienced companies pass over and it leads to their downfall.

Our crews take the time to prepare your surface adequately (most important step) and then apply our renowned 1 Day Coatings products. Amazingly, we can do this entire process in just one day! How? We are factory trained & certified and backed by a superior residential & commercial warranty program. All this means that we have the skills and specialties to accomplish exactly what we say we’re gonna do in the time frame we say we’re gonna do it! We’re the flooring contractors that you can trust!
