Tampa Bay Epoxy Coating
Garages aren't really known for being attractive spaces unless they belong to commercial car dealerships, where presentation is everything. Most home garages in the Tampa Bay area are made of concrete flooring and are littered with oil stains, dirt, sand and other messes that are difficult to clean up. This can make for a very unpleasant sight ... but it doesn't have to be this way!

GARAGE FLOOR EPOXIES AND POLYASPARTIC COATING SYSYEMS
There is a good, better, and best with all paints and coatings, and flooring systems are no different.
A waterborne epoxy is the least expensive and will not last more than a few years (GOOD)
Better than paint, however the are susceptible to hot tire pick up and gas, oil, brake fluid or solvents must be cleaned up imediately, and it cannot be returned to service for 3 to 4 days. Gray with light flake and tan with light flake are offered.
Solvent based epoxies take it to another level. (BETTER).
As far as epoxy coating go, we prefer Sherwin Williams Armour Seal. The most popular color choices are solid gray or solid tan. You can also choose to add a light flake or full flake followed by a urethane top coat for added protection.
This is a great system that is much more durable than a waterborne however this will take at least 2 to 3 days to install. It can receive foot traffic the next day but cannot go back into full service for at leat 72 hours after installation, but gas, oil, brake fluid or solvents should still be cleaned up imediately. Although they provide better resistance these chemicals can damage the epoxy. Also they are not UV stable (they will yellow over time) and cannot be used outside.
The Cadillac of the floor coatings is the Polyaspartic.(BEST).
The best product out there is HP Spartacote and Integrity Finishes is a licensed applicator. You can't pick this up at your home improvement stores. A typical 2 1/2 car garage can be completed in a day and back to full service the next. Advatages are it is 4 times more durable than an epoxy and will not fade or yellow like an epoxy can. Impervious to gas,oil and brake fluid spills.It also can be used in exterior applications and just looks amazing.
This is also available in solid gray or solid tan. You can also choose to add a light flake or full flake. This is a 3 coat system that does not require a urethane top coat. When we come to your home we will provide samples of these beautiful floor coatings. All coatings are best applied to new or bare concrete. Waterbornes or epoxies may only require an acid etch. With the Polyaspartic we always diamond grind before installation. Existing coatings do not always need to be removed. If they are sound they can be sanded and chemically cleaned. Any coating that is failing must be removed. We do much more than just garage floors. We also apply the solvent based epoxies and polyaspartic coatings in commercial and industrial applications.

Integrity Finishes of Tampa Bay is Rated: 3 / 3
based on this 1 happy customer review.
"Aaron prepared his bid on the spot. After reviewing the house he went to his truck, opened his computer, prepared the bid, and printed it out. I didn't have to wait several days which was the case in other bids. Integrity Finishes of Tampa Bay has a full-time staff which is important in selecting a house painter. You will be assigned a job supervisor who oversees everything. The quality of the workmen results in quality work. And they just happen to be nice guys on top of everything. Overall, I could not be more pleased."
