Then, we’ll repair any issues found to ensure a smooth application.
Step 3 - Base Coat
Next, we go in with a base coat that acts as a primer for the main coating.

Our Frequently Asked Questions
Because the epoxy garage floor coating needs to be clean and slightly porous, the concrete must be completely cured. If there are any major cracks or chips in the concrete, they need to be patched and repaired.
Old concrete should be tested to see if it was previously sealed with epoxy or other sealants. The best way to test the concrete is to pour some water onto the surface. If the water beads, it is likely the concrete was previously sealed. If the water soaks into the concrete, it is porous and can be sealed.
Epoxy flooring is a two-part liquid that needs to be combined prior to applying. It cures quickly, so there is a limited window of time to apply it. Temperature makes a difference, because if the temperature is unfavorable, the epoxy flooring could bubble and peel.
The process generally takes one to two days. Prepping the floor is the step that takes the longest. First, the concrete needs to be repaired. Then, any stains will need to be removed before the concrete is diamond ground. After all of that is done, the epoxy can be installed.
Installation of the epoxy coating only takes a few hours, but the curing process could take two to three days. Having said that, it usually is safe to walk on after twelve hours and have light use after twenty-four hours.
If the epoxy coating needs to be cured faster, an increase in temperature can help. The ideal temperature for curing is between seventy-five to eighty-five degrees Fahrenheit. Space heaters are a popular way to speed up the curing.
In a residential garage, epoxy coating is usually limited to one coat. If, however, a second or third coat is required, the coating will need to be sanded with non-aggressive grit sandpaper before another coat is added. The sanding needs to be thorough and cover the whole surface.
Multiple layers of epoxy coating are usually done in industrial settings such airplane hangars, retail stores, showrooms, commercial kitchens, and hospitals. Each coat should be cured for at least twenty-four hours before another coat is applied.
98% of our epoxy flooring installations take two days. Day one is spent preparing the floor and applying the epoxy and chips. Day two is spent applying the sealer. On day three, you will be able to walk around and move items back into the area, allowing several more days before driving vehicles over the surface.
Our Polyaspartic color chip floors are installed in just one day so you can be back on your floor quickly. 24 hours to full cure and ready for vehicles.
An industrial, dust-free vacuum system and a professional grade grinder are used to prepare the area. The small diamonds abrade and scuff up the shiny surface of your concrete, allowing our industrial coating to penetrate deep into the concrete to ensure a bond that will last for many, many years!
We stand behind every floor we install, offering a 20 year warranty on the floor peeling up.
Our fast setting polymer patching system is applied to any cracks in the floor. It fills the existing cracks, and then we grind them smooth to match the existing floor level. This hybrid polymer is harder than concrete. It has been proven to repair just about any type of crack in the floor!
Dawn dish soap or simply green and water work great! One of the benefits of our floors is that they clean up SUPER easily! Simply pour the solution on the floor and use a mop or squeegee to clean.
All Around Surfaces offers any color you wish, giving you the opportunity to match a team color, a car, etc. The possibilities are endless!
For $100, we offer a trailer rental which we leave for five days to give you time to empty your garage.
Smooth concrete is slippery. To solve this problem, we apply a texture to our floors which gives a non-slip quality.
