3 Car Garage Floor Coating for Farm House in Fauquier County
We recently completed a residential concrete coating job for a spacious three-car garage in Fauquier County, VA. The garage’s concrete showed the usual wear and tear, with some cracks that needed attention. As is our standard practice, we meticulously ground and filled these areas, preparing the surface for coating. This detailed process was well-documented in photos to showcase the transformation.
For this project, the client chose the sophisticated “Smoke” chip flake, a choice that beautifully complements the home’s aesthetics — white external walls, black molding and gutters, a grey stone facade, and a dark grey roof. Along with the garage floor, we also coated the steps leading into the house and the raised molding on one side of the garage wall.
Despite the considerable area to be covered, our two trucks and experienced team managed to complete the project efficiently in just one day. This project highlights our commitment to delivering high-quality, durable, and aesthetically pleasing solutions, tailored to each home’s unique style, all within a time frame that minimizes disruption for our clients.
Garage Floor Coating Using Smoke Chip Flake
On March 16th, 2023, we embarked on a residential garage floor coating project in Fauquier County. Initially, we encountered concrete in decent shape, showing typical signs of wear and only a few cracks along the baseboard. Our first step was to meticulously repair these cracks and polish the concrete, preparing it for the new coating.
The client selected “Smoke” chip flakes for the coating, one of our favorites. We applied this not only to the garage floor but also extended our work to the concrete baseboard and the steps leading into the home from the garage, while the stair railing was left unpainted as per the client’s preference.
This project showcases our efficiency and attention to detail, delivering a significant enhancement to the garage in just one day. The client now enjoys a refreshed and robust garage floor that perfectly combines functionality with a sleek, modern style.
Polyurea vs Epoxy
Although epoxy offers initial cost savings, polyurea is better choice in terms of overall performance and long-term cost-effectiveness, owing to its durability and lower maintenance requirements. The decision between epoxy and polyurea ultimately hinges on your needs. Go with polyurea if want a long-lasting, durable coating with minimal upkeep. Alternatively, if you’re pursuing a shorter-term solution or operating on a tighter budget – epoxy might suit your needs. For those with the requisite skills and time, a DIY approach could also be considered.
Typically, the cost of materials and labor varies, averaging around $6.50 per square foot for larger areas like 900 square feet, and going up to $9.00 per square foot for smaller spaces of around 300 square feet.
Frequently Asked Questions
Polyurea and epoxy are both used for coating concrete, but they’re quite different. Polyurea is stronger and lasts longer, about 15 years, compared to epoxy’s 3-5 years. It bonds deeply with concrete, making it less likely to chip or peel. Epoxy, while protective, just sits on the surface and can wear out faster, especially with heat and sunlight. When applying polyurea, the surface needs more preparation, but this makes it more durable. In simple terms, polyurea is like a stronger, longer-lasting protective layer for your concrete surfaces. Learn more about the difference between polyurea and epoxy.
It is always a good idea to consult your HOA regarding rules about painting or installing coatings in outdoor areas visible from the outside. Typically, this would only apply to driveway and sidewalk coatings. We advise you to check with your HOA, review their documentation, and see whether there is any mention of concrete coatings. If there isn’t, you should be clear to have your coating installed.
Epoxy and some other polyurea coatings can only be installed during warmer months of the year. But, our polyurea coating can be installed year-round even in winter, and still only takes a day for installation.
