The Ultimate 1-Day Concrete Floor Coating Q&A

The Ultimate 1-Day Concrete Floor Coating Q&A

Jul 26, 2019

Have you seen our 1-Day floor coatings? If not, you definitely need to head over to our Facebook page and check them out. This floor coating system is becoming popular in the Central Valley.

We have a team on our Facebook page who are ready to answer questions, and people have had some GREAT questions!

With this in mind, we thought that it would be an appropriate time to go over some of the questions that we see most frequently. If you have a question that isn’t on this list, don’t hesitate to ask.

Can I DIY This Coating?

As craftsmen ourselves, we appreciate the homeowners who enjoy DIY’ing projects. There’s nothing quite as satisfying as finishing a project that you created with your own hands.

Unfortunately, this is not a DIY friendly project. Big box stores offer epoxy products and floor paint that you can install on your own, but these products do not compare to our floor coatings.

  • Our team became fully-certified after going through extensive training. We are an official Penntek dealer.
  • We use industrial-grade equipment. Have you seen our grinder photos on Facebook? This grinder is one of the most crucial parts of the preparation process and the equipment is hard to come by.
  • Polyurea and epoxy are very different! Polyurea is 4x stronger than epoxy, it will never crack peel or chip and is slip resistant!
  • Our flooring comes with a 15 year warranty!

Do You Coat More Than Garages?

Garages are one of our more popular projects, but we can coat outdoor surfaces as well. Many of our customers have also had their patios, poolside spaces, walkways and driveways coated. Not only is our 1-Day floor coating slip resistant, but it will also protect your concrete from the elements!

Do Your Concrete Coatings Have an Odor?

The smell of epoxy is strong and lingers. Fortunately, the same cannot be said for our coatings.

Our polyurea system adheres much, much quicker than epoxy. Plus, it is a low-VOC formula. This means that it doesn’t have much of a chemical odor and is much more environmentally friendly. It is even safe enough to coat indoor surfaces with little ventilation.

How Long Is Drying Time?

Epoxy takes at least 5 days (or longer) to dry. Believe it or not, our 1-Day floor coatings are:

  • Safe to walk on after 12 hours.
  • Safe to move items back in after 24 hours.
  • Safe to drive on in JUST 48 hours!

Is It Slippery?

Slippery surfaces are a huge safety concern. Since we coat both indoor and outdoor surfaces, this is a common question. The short answer is no! The texture is similar to an orange peel and exceeds the traction requirements outlined by the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act).

If you want to increase the traction even more, we can include a special additive. This might be a great choice for pools and steps.

Today we had Josh and his crew install a beautiful concrete coating on our garage floor.
They were on-time, polite, meticulous and extremely professional. Josh met and walked with us through the project area explaining the coating process and answering all our last minute questions. Then they went to work, and worked diligently all day. The result is gorgeous!
They cleaned up after themselves-leaving nothing behind except a perfect finished product and smiles on our faces.

Next we are having them paint the garage walls-I'll post photos when it's done!
(Jennifer, Stephanie and Kimberly were also wonderful in the planning process. They worked to accommodate our time restraints and budget needs to get this project off the ground-with estimating, proposals and scheduling. Thank you ladies!)

Our home just got painted and we're very pleased with the quality of the work. Thanks to Andrei, Julian, Jeff and Robert. They were all real pros and did an excellent job. They were always on-time, and more importantly we communicated well throughout the job to ensure we got what we wanted. We've never had painting done before, and were impressed with their attention to detail. Were sun and weather beat up our original paint the most, they made sure to apply extra coats. Great work!

We just had the exterior of our home in Riverbank painted by Lancaster Painting. The process from stat to finish was a very professional experience. The office staff that worked in creating the bid and walking us through the process was very professional. The painting crew, led by Kurt, did an outstanding job. There were very professional in dealing with my family. They were extremely knowledgeable about the painting process and thoroughly answered all of our questions. And they were punctual and complete the job ahead of schedule. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering having their house painted.

I recently used Lancaster to paint my two story house. I could not have been more pleased! I had Toby as an estimator, Sergio was the foreman and his crew Jaciel and Donald were fantastic. Their attention to details was excellent. I had shutters installed and they did a great job painting and installing them. They were on time and very professional. At the end of each day they would clean up, which was great.

Lancaster take pride of their work, now I understand why they have a high rating. I would definitely recommend them!

The crew from Lancaster recently completed interior painting at my home and I could not be happier with their work. The project leader, Raul, was friendly, professional and super helpful. The price was reasonable for the amount of work done. I was astonished on how well the house was prepped, how quickly the work was completed, and how clean the crew left my house. It is clear to me how they received top reviews from my family who had exterior work done by Lancaster in the past. Amazing job, thank you for the excellent customer service and the beautiful, fresh walls!

This is my second review. I had lancaster back to paint my ceilings, master bedroom and living room. The painters were very professional and accommodating while they were in my home for 2 days. They moved furniture as needed and even vacuumed up before they left! They have a warranty program for 2 years :)

Thank you so much for making my home feel new again!

Lancaster painting is the go-to paint company! They do excellent quality work and are more than friendly and accommodating to your needs. We recently had our kitchen cabinets repainted and they turned out better than we imagined. Our project leader assured us on everything, and they even finished when they said they would. QUALITY YOU CAN SEE! Kim the receptionist is a sweetheart, our consultant was extremely knowledgeable and very well versed on how to convey our needs in terms we understood. Most of all or painter Ashoor was awesome. Super friendly, excellent painter, made sure our brand new home stayed in new condition while he painted, and even made sure an extra touch ups we saw or he saw were taken care of immediately. He didn't leave our home until he knew his work was completed to our and his quality standards. Would HIGHLY recommend this company if you need any painting done, especially cabinets.

Pictures below are before and after. Before was brown, after is Swiss coffee white and restorative blue.

Lancaster just finished repainting the exterior of our business. The price was very reasonable and the employees are all top notch. Our building is a historical building and we had it painted the same colors to maintain its history. The results from Lancaster were perfection!
