NY & NJ Basement Floor Waterproofing, Staining & Seal

Seamless Flooring of NJ, NY and NYC0 comments

Most people in NY, NYC and NJ do not know about basement seamless flooring solutions. After Hurricane Irene, we had an enormous amount of calls from victims of flooding. Unfortunately, many people had ruined carpets, warped wood floors and even buckled tiles, along with mold and mildew. These flooring systems are inadequate for a basement. This could have all been avoided if the correct waterproof basement polymer floor was installed. Luckily, we have many resinous flooring solutions.

One such basement flooring solution we have had great success with is our grind, hone, stain and seal. This seamless flooring solution consists of a 4 stage diamond grinding and honing process, then applying an optional acetone based UV stable concrete dye and finally sealing the concrete with a special breathable epoxy sealer. This special epoxy is not only anti-mold and anti-microbial but will also hold back and control the humidity emitting through your below grade slab. Say goodbye to your humid and muggy basement! Another quality of this seamless concrete floor is a light reflecting, clean and beautiful floor. Lastly, no worries about ever having to replace your floor, even if it floods again.

Here is an example of our basement grind, hone and seal system;

Concrete Floor Restoration, Waterproofed & Beautified In NY

Seamless Flooring of NJ, NY and NYC0 comments

Hey guys, just wanted to share a recent project we just finished. As you can see from the pics below, it was concrete floor surgery..or actually reconstructive surgery.

In this project we found 4 layers of failed underlayments, installed previously by tile and carpet contractors. Insufficient prep and poor installation,combined with a moisture issue made all the substrates installed fail. some areas where 2 to 4 inched thick that where hollowed out. One area had no reinforcement nor was it attached to the original slab in any way, just poured over dirt without even a vapor barrier, hence the moisture issues.

NJ Decorative Concrete Floor Honorable Mention

Seamless Flooring of NJ, NY and NYC23 comments

Typically, we here at Garage and Beyond do not like to “toot” our own horn, as most see through our constant Tweeting and Facebooking….but here in this case we had a manufacturer Duraamen and Concrete Ideas mention us on in their blogs regarding a recent project, Wine Chateau Metuchen NJ.

In this project, the client started out with 1/3 of the slab being old and deteriorated and the rest being a very new, smooth and hard troweled concrete finish but very dark gray. The client wanted a warm look to his new store, so we suggested to resurface with a pigmented sprayable microtopping. The hand drawn vines that color shift from bronze to patina epoxy was an afterthought that was supposed to only cover the entrance. The owner loved it so much he asked us to continue throughout the 7000 sqft store. He gave us an extra day, yes, we hand drew and painted vines in one day on 5500 sqft of floor space! I still don’t know how we did it but my knees hate me for it.

The Real Difference Between Professional Garage Flooring and DIY

There are times when people will find themselves with a bit of sticker shock when it comes to our pricing for epoxy flooring and garage remodeling.
Hopefully I can explain the difference without overwhelming you with too much industry jargon and technical speak.
Let’s start with a picture that I will say more than anything I could type out:

Spring Cleaning For Your Garage

Garage Organization of NJ and NY0 comments

We all know what happens this time of year – the traditional spring cleaning. I know far too many people who take this as an opportunity to take all the garbage from their house and dump it into their garage.

Even I have done this from time to time. Do it too much, and you’re left with this:

I’ve seen worse. Much worse.
