How To Protect Your Concrete From Calcification
What is calcification? Does your garage concrete look like this?
This is what we call calcification, or spalling. Moisture, salt, magnesium chloride, and gas can cause serious damage to your concrete. It starts to break down and crumble away, allowing even more moisture into the surface. The surface is now impossible to keep clean, and each passing day is only making it worse. Soon, the entire slab will need to be replaced.
How do you prevent calcification?
That’s easy! Protect your concrete with our Polyaspartic coating systems!
The polyaspartic material soaks into and bonds with the concrete, creating a protective, durable surface that is impenetrable by water, magnesium chloride, gas, and oils. Properly treating your concrete before calcification starts can prolong the life of your concrete by decades.
The process starts by grinding the concrete to open up the pores of the floor and give the materials a proper surface to bond to. We take special care to inspect the floor for cracking or damage and make sure those are patched and sealed prior to applying the coatings. We also take the time to seal and protect the perimeter of your floor since that is a prime area for water to seep beneath your slab. Once the coatings are applied and cure for at least 12 hours, you can resume use of your garage and enjoy your easy to clean, beautiful, protected floor
What if my concrete is already calcified? Can it still be coated?
Possibly. It depends on how bad it is. We will visit with you at your garage to inspect it and make a professional recommendation. If the concrete needs to be replaced, we will be honest with you and we won’t try to sell you a coating that won’t last.
If the calcification is just starting, installing our Polyaspartic coating systems can significantly slow it down and extend the life of your concrete. The sooner we can protect your floor, the better. Don’t wait until it’s too late! Call us today!
