Don't Stop Working: We'll Coat Your Concrete Floor in Just One Day!

Pouring epoxy finish on concrete

Choosing the right floor coating system for your business is a crucial part of creating the right atmosphere to greet your visitors, employees, clients, and potential investors. Freshening up with a new epoxy concrete coating is a sure-fire way to boost professional appeal. No matter the specific needs your Maryland business has, a dirty floor is an immediate turnoff and a terrible way to make a first impression. After all, regular concrete floors can be an absolute disaster. They easily absorb spills, leaving stains that can last for years, as most slabs were installed with minimal sealing. In addition to this, the porous nature of concrete, combined with its natural chalkiness, can make the surface nearly impossible to keep clean. An epoxy sealed floor, on the other hand, is non-porous, and won’t allow dirt and spills to stain your beautiful workspace. Any mess that is made can be easily cleaned with soap and water. Hiring a professional commercial flooring contractor to perform the coating process is a great way to keep your working area clean and inviting for years to come.


Our specialists begin by cleaning the floor thoroughly. High-traffic areas and areas that tend to accumulate dirt and grease are noted, and any locations with mold or fungal issues will also be addressed. This sort of overview of the work to be done is important, as we don’t want to seal any contaminants in, and we need to ensure that there is proper coverage over the high-traffic or problematic areas. The cleaning process includes patching cracks, scraping up any residue, and degreasing where necessary. After the floor is well and truly clean, our professional contractor will prepare the floor by grinding the surface down with an industrial grinder. This will open up millions of tiny pores within the surface. Following this, the floor is thoroughly vacuumed with HEPA filtration in order to remove any lingering dust particles. A floor coating can be applied over a wide range of surfaces, including wood, tile, and concrete. This may take additional coats depending on the material to be coated, as a thinner coat would be smoother and slipperier, and would reveal more imperfections than would a thicker coat. A two-part priming coat is then blended with a tinted base, and this rolled across the floor, entering the pores that were created by the grinding process. This provides excellent adhesion, and will ensure your floor has a long life and high performance. Our technicians will use special footwear allowing them to walk across the currently wet floor. If desired, colored chips will be inserted into the base coat to achieve the desired look. The floor is generally dry enough, within an hour or so, to be scrapped. Once this is done, our specialist will apply a two-part topcoat that is poured directly onto the floor.

Creating a good first impression is important for any business, and what better way to make that impression than with a shiny, clean new floor? Contact DC Generals today to schedule a concrete flooring consultation!

“I heard about the benefits of having my garage floor done by DC Generals Concrete Coatings, but the outcome exceeded my expectations! The garage looks 10x better and feels more like a living space now. No more oil stains since any new ones can be cleaned up. The job only took one day and it gave me an excuse to clean out my garage. I highly recommend DC Generals Concrete Coatings and their PennTek product. I will never own another house without having a PennTek garage.”
