Frequently Asked Questions
Why can’t I put an engineered floor system in myself?
You can, but there’s a lot of intricacies involved in putting down a floor system such as grinding the floor, rolling your coats, or throwing vinyl flakes. There is a lot of technique involved even with something that sounds as simple as rolling paint. Have you ever painted a room and once the paint has dried you can see every paint roller mark? That’s what can happen if you try to tackle an engineered flooring system yourself.
What if I decide to install an engineered floor system myself and I skip a step?
If you skip a step and do it yourself, the integrity of your floor system is likely shot. You cannot skip a step and expect a floor system to perform and last the way you want.
If I want to cut down on costs, can I just do one clear coat instead of two?
If you apply just one clear coat, you’re not going to get the final product. It would be like asking an Auto Body shop to paint your car but not apply the top coat over the base coat to save a couple bucks. In both scenarios, you’ll be left a project that doesn’t look like you envisioned. Don’t short change yourself and the investment that you’re putting into your floor.
Why is your engineered floor system worth the cost?
We’ll be the first to admit that we don’t have the cheapest floor system out there, and we get it – everyone has a budget. But the most important thing to consider when shopping around for floor systems is the end result. You can save money now by going with a cheaper system. But if that system fails 3 years down the road, was it worth the savings? If you break down the cost of our engineered floor system by years of use you’ll start to see why it’s an investment that’s worth it.
How long will it take to install your floor system?
Each job is different and the time it requires depends on several factors such as the condition of your concrete and size of the floor. Generally, we can finish 1500 square feet in about 3 days. Prepping the floor is always the most important and time-consuming aspect of the job. If your concrete has a lot of cracks and spalling, then the job will take longer.
What kind of maintenance is required with your V-8 hybrid floor coating?
Once the system is in place the only maintenance you may need to do with your floor are routine things like sweeping, mopping, or spraying it down with a garden hose. We also have a special cleaner that is designed to work on these types of floor systems in case you need help removing tough stains like grease, oil, or grime.
Are there any cleaning products I shouldn’t use on my V-8 hybrid floor coating?
Never use anything acidic on the flooring as it will break down the polyaspartic blend.
