6 Questions to Ask Before a Garage Floor Resurfacing Job

When you own a garage, whether it’s a small, two-car garage adjacent to your home or a huge auto body shop garage used for commercial purposes, you will eventually encounter a time when repairs are needed. Without proper maintenance and repairs for your garage floor when minor problems arise, you will end up with more problems and expenses on your hands. Eventually your garage floor will need to be resurfaced. But if you have never done that before, it may seem confusing at first. In order to know how to find the right materials and contractors for the job, you should ask these six questions about garage floor resurfacing.

Can You Do a One-Day Process? When looking for a company to do your garage floor resurfacing job, you will want to be clear about how long it will take them to get the floor finished. In general, it is not feasible for a garage floor to be processed in one day or less, especially if the garage space is substantial or if the floor is in bad condition. If you have a certain time that you need the job done, you should ask the contractors how long it will take before you can get back to your regular routine. 

What is Your Warranty? Like anything else you have repaired or replaced, you will want to ask the contractors about what warranties they offer first. After all, you want to be able to get the most life out of your new garage floor after investing in resurfacing it. Should any issues arise with the new floor (especially if something happens soon after the resurfacing job) you will want to have a warranty. 

What Type of Coating Material And Brand do You Use? This is an important question to ask in order to get a better sense of the contractor’s knowledge of different products. Also, you will want to know what materials and which brand they will use before working on your garage floor. It is also acceptable to ask them where they are getting the materials from and to supply your with the contact information of the supplier if you have an extra questions. 

What is Your Certification? Before asking for certification, you will want to inquire about the contractor’s experience, training, education, and other credentials. In addition to these qualifications, you should also ask to see some certification. Ask the contractor if certified with the product suppliers to supply the coatings. Secondly, you can ask to see a training certificate as well. 

How do You Test For Moisture? In the beginning stages of the flooring process, testing for moisture is one of the most vital first steps. If you a flooring company does not test for moisture, look elsewhere. In addition to making sure the company will test the subfloor for moisturizer, you also want to what moisture meter brand they will use. The Tramex is the moisture meter brand that is recommended by The National Society for Protective Coatings. 

What Floors do You Specialize in? Does the flooring company do more work on residential garage floors than they do commercial garage floors? Do they do both? Or just one? You don’t want to accidentally hire a company that only does residential garages when you own an auto repair shop. Make sure you know what they specialize in and what the bulk of their professional flooring experience has been.
