Epoxy Concrete Floor Coating
Alternative Surfaces provides turn-key epoxy resin floor installation services, including removal of your existing floor system, surface preparation, and installation of the proper coating system for your industry. Our coating systems are designed to provide aesthetic enhancement and abrasion and chemical resistance to a floor surface. Because a coating is dense, seamless and has low porosity, it is easier to clean and maintain than an uncoated surface. Coatings are available in variety of colors, allowing you to match your floor’s new look to the rest of the environment. Alternative Surfaces offers thin-film and high-build coating systems for high end resistances, assembly and light manufacturing areas, aircraft hangars, food process areas, laboratories, clean rooms, pedestrian walkways, warehouses and similar industrial and commercial areas.
High Performance Floor Coating
Alternative Surfaces Polyurea garage floors are the choice of homeowners and commercial contractors who want an attractive, long lasting and durable garage floor protection. The reason why polyurea flooring is applied is to protect the concrete from wearing off, from oil, grease, vehicles, foot traffic, animal urine etc. Alternative Surfaces garage floor have an advantage over modular flooring systems because our coatings becomes part of the concrete. Modular floors sit above the concrete and are subject to the moisture, dirt, grease and oil that may seep through it allowing mildew and stains to form below the tiling.

Water Proofing & Vapor Control
We offer a variety of waterproofing, damp proofing, coating and air/vapor barrier systems designed to protect your building’s structural components and interior areas from water & moisture infiltration. Typically moisture intrusion problems are seen visually as symptomatic spot whitening or darkening, lifting, cracking, spalling, bubbling, blistering, oozing, or leaking. Concrete slabs with moisture vapor emission in excess of 20 pounds and ph levels of 14 can be treated to acceptable levels or vapor emission and alkalinity. From pre-job specification to post failure restoration, Alternative Surfaces can handle your floor moisture problem. Concrete Surface Preparation: Improperly prepared surfaces can result in reduced coating integrity and service life. Up to 80% of all coating failures can be directly attributed to inadequate surface preparation, which affects coating adhesion. Proper surface preparation includes the following: Inspection of the concrete substrate, removal and replacement of non-durable concrete, decontamination of the concrete surface, creation of surface profile and repair of surface irregularities. To ensure adhesion of the coating to the substrate and prolong the service life of the coating system, select and implement the proper surface preparation. The method of surface preparation (grinding, milling, scarifying, shot blasting) depends on the substrate, the environment, and the expected life of the coating systems.
Polyurea Concrete Floor Coatings

Urethane Concrete Floor Coating
Alternative Surfaces installs urethane floor coating systems to provide a very durable, easily colored, high gloss light reflective surface in demanding commercial and industrial settings. Like epoxy coatings, urethanes are available in a variety of options. One component versions are popular, ranging from 40 % to 100 % solids. One component products are called “moisture cured urethanes” (MCU) and are typically solvent borne. Water based urethanes are recognized for outstanding adhesion properties, while offering less durability than their solvent borne counterparts. An installation consisting of epoxy primer and two coats of moisture cure urethane remains one of the industry’s best values. In areas such as aircraft hangars, production areas, chemical processing plants, battery charging areas, and warehouses, “chemical resistance urethanes” (CRU) offer excellent chemical resistance to hydrochloric (muratic) acid, phosphoric acid, sulfuric (battery) acid, brake fluid, skydrol, jet fuels, and other industrial chemicals. CRU’s are cycloaliphatic in nature, reducing their tendency to yellow from ultraviolet light.
Showers & Locker Rooms

Despite its durability, concrete is a porous material, which means it can absorb water, chlorides, stains, and other water and oil base materials that it comes in contact with. By treating the concrete with a sealer, you can inhibit the penetration of these intruders while allowing the surface to breathe, so moisture within the concrete doesn’t become trapped. Concrete is typically sealed with either a penetrating densifying sealer or a film forming sealer.

Penetrating water-base sodium silicate solutions harden and densify concrete by chemically reacting with the calcium salts present in concrete. It can be applied in one coat or multiple coats depending on the concrete porosity and can be used on either new or existing concrete floor. Sealers actually penetrate into the concrete surface to a depth of about 1 to 4 mills to increase water repellency and resist stains on absorbent concrete.

They provide invisible protection without changing the surface appearance, and can increase the surface strength of your concrete floor. Film forming solvent and water based acrylic sealers inhibit penetration of water and contaminants such as oil, grease, and stain by forming a barrier on the concrete surface. When used on newly placed concrete, sealers can help protect against spalling, dusting, efflorescence, freeze-thaw damage, and alkali degradation. Many also impart a gloss or sheen, so they often are used to enhanced colored, stamped, or exposed aggregate concrete.
