Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What type of flooring system do you use?

    We have a number of resinous polymer formulations of epoxy and polyaspartic. This allows us to address various concrete, temperature and humidity conditions as well as offer different aesthetic attributes in our decorative coatings systems.

  2. How do you prepare the floor before coating it?

    New or old we prepare the concrete mechanically using diamond tooling on a commercial grinder. This cleans the top surface and “opens the pores” of the concrete allowing our base coat to penetrate deeply for excellent adhesion. This process is typically considered to be the best method for obtaining a consistent surface profile and is superior to the acid was method used by others in the industry.

    The floor install takes two days. You can return your garage between 24-36 hours depending on weather conditions. Some companies complete this process in one day and present it as a benefit to you. We disagree. To finish in one day the cure times of the base coat must cure fast. Speeding up this process can jeopardize the depth of penetration and ultimately the quality of adhesion. Cabinet installs typically are completed in 1-2 days.

  5. What do we do with all our garage “stuff” while the work is being done?

    It is the homeowner’s responsibility to remove all contents. It is often stored under a tarp in the driveway or in a side yard or patio. As a chargeable options, we can arrange for a storage unit to be delivered and we can also empty the garage for you.

  6. Do the products smell so bad that I need to vacate the space?

    Boston Garage purchases the most expensive, highest quality products on the market. While there is a slight odor that will dissipate, they are LEED certified products that are deemed environmentally friendly

  7. How should I clean my new floor?

    Simply spray it clean with a garden hose and spray nozzle then use a foam squeegee to remove the excess water. Occasionally you may need to use 5-6 ounces of CLEAR ammonia per gallon of water to remove some stubborn dirt or stains.

    Life expectancy is about 15 years under normal use and care.
