DryZone, LLC Case Studies: Garage Floor and Stem Wall is Transformed in Lincoln, DE

Friday, October 18th, 2019 by Amy Brown

Challenge

This garage floor in Lincoln, DE was stained and unsightly. Between frequent car repairs and messy tools, this garage had seen much better days. Oil stains can be a constant frustration and a challenge to clean for car and motorcycle enthusiasts with concrete garage floor.  

 This homeowner enjoys working on cars and especially enjoys working on cars with his friends, but it had gotten to the point where he did not want to welcome his friends into a space that he could not keep clean.  The constant challenge had become too much for him and he was looking for a stain resistant, durable garage floor coating that he could be proud of for years to come.  After exploring some DIY options, this homeowner approached DryZone for a solution from experts in concrete repair.

Solution

The solution to the stains that DryZone presented and installed was a polyaspartic concrete floor coating. This technology turns stained and cracked concrete garage floors into a beautiful, durable and long-lasting surface that withstands the activities which are common in garages, specifically for this homeowner, oil spills.

In one day, DryZone installed the coating on the garage floor and stem wall providing a space on that this homeowner could be proud of for years to come.  The DryZone installation team took care to measure the hardness of the surface of the concrete and then ground down the surface of the concrete in accordance with the results of the hardness testing.  Upon completing the concrete preparation, the installation team installed the base polyaspartic coating which is mixed with pigment which will be beautiful for years to come and resistant the impact of UV rays. Upon laying an even pigment base coat, the team applied flakes which give it the beautiful, granite-like appearance for which it is known but also provides a slip resistant surface that will give peace of mind on rainy days.  The final step was a clear polyaspartic top coat which will make for simple cleanup for all spills. A few sprays of Simple Green will take care of all of the oil spills which are not cleaned up with a swipe of a paper towel. No more stains and now this homeowner has a garage that he can host his friends and repair cars for years to come.
