Would you like to create a finished look in your garage and maximize the available space at your home or business?

Established in 2008, Garage Floor Coating – The Great Lakes is a family-owned and -run business in Sylvania, Ohio.

Perfected Epoxy Floor Coating Process

Garage Floor Coating – The Great Lakes has perfected the epoxy floor-coating process. As a result, the company has refined some corporate installation procedures to achieve the longest-lasting results. Following customers’ exact specifications, Garage Floor Coating – The Great Lakes provides these solutions in only 2 to 4 days:

Protection from weathering, cracking and pitting

Reduction of oils and chemicals

Safeguard against other contaminants and moisture

To increase the life of your floor, Garage Floor Coating – The Great Lakes addresses the specific needs of each situation, ranging from moisture problems to repairs. Every garage is assessed carefully before the ideal product mix is identified. Then, knowledgeable technicians proceed through each epoxy floor-coating stage, with focused attention on details.

Here are the stages involved:

Stage 1: During this step, experts use a diamond grinder and/or controlled chemical etching process to prepare the floor. They minimize dust and ensure a contaminant-free floor surface, which allows the bonding to take effect.

Stage 2: Technicians repair cracking and divot/pitting. Then, they apply the most effective primer before a second layer of solid epoxy, along with a full or partial polyvinyl acetate (PVA) microchips.

Stage 3: Knowledgeable professionals sand and/or scrape the first two layers and microchips to achieve the desired amount of texture. After using an anti-skid aggregate, a clear top coat is applied.

Stage 4: If necessary, the surface is lightly sanded. Then, an additional clear coat may be applied.

Range of Colors and Installation Options

The Garage Floor Coating – The Great Lakes offers a wide spectrum of colors and installation options. Some of these include:

Earth Effects: This proprietary application consists of chips made from mica. This natural mineral flake makes the flooring system glisten and is applied using a seven-layer system.

Liquid Art: This revolutionizing floor coating, with glass-like smoothness, has a hammered metal or moon-crater appearance.

Platinum Plus: Five layers of protection include primer, color coat, a full broadcast of PVA microchips and two poly hybrid clear top coats.

Platinum: A one-coat poly hybrid clear top coat is applied, along with a full broadcast of PVA microchips.

Gold Plus: A primer, color coat, partial broadcast of PVA microchips and one poly hybrid clear top coat are used.

Gold: This application is perfect for basements, kitchens, bathrooms, bars and other interior spaces, which do not require UV protection. The primer coat is composed of industrial high solid hydro-polymer epoxies, which provide protection against moisture.
