When can I use the garage?

We use an ultra-fast drying system that allows you to start moving things back into your garage just 24 hours after installation. And in just 48 hours, you can park your car in its new home! This means you can enjoy your transformed garage floor in no time, with minimal disruption to your daily routine.

What are the steps of my epoxy floor install?

1. First, we use a planetary grinder and hand grinders to grind your floor, which creates a texture that promotes bonding and ensures that your floor stays put for years.

2. Next, we thoroughly vacuum your floor to ensure that the epoxy coating adheres properly to your concrete.

3. We then apply a fast-drying base coat that is four times thicker than standard paint to prime the floor. This base layer acts as a barrier against moisture vapor that can cause bubbles in other epoxy primers.

4. Once the base coat dries, we broadcast your decorative flake into the floor, and then vacuum up any excess flakes.

5. Next, we apply a protective layer that is resistant to chemicals, UV light, and water. This ensures that your garage floor looks great and lasts for years to come.

6. Finally, we clean up our workspace and leave you with a beautiful new floor.

Can I leave things in my garage?

We understand that it may be inconvenient to move everything out of your garage before our installation team arrives. However, to complete a one-day garage installation, we require that everything be moved out of the space prior to our arrival. Unfortunately, our workers are not able to move boxes or other items for you due to safety reasons. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we assure you that the end result will be well worth the effort. Thank you for choosing American Poly for your garage floor installation needs.

Will it smell?

We understand that the odor from installation products can be a concern for many customers. However, our ultra high solids products are designed to reduce odors significantly. Additionally, these products dry and cure quickly, which means that any residual odors won't linger for long. While all installation products have a certain level of odor, our team uses the best and most advanced products available to ensure that your experience is as pleasant as possible.
