Waterproofing concrete is an essential process for industrial and commercial facilities. It helps protect these types of buildings from water damage, which can be costly and cause extensive damage over time.

In this blog post, we will discuss the different methods of waterproofing concrete and the benefits and cost of each one. We will also answer some common questions about concrete waterproofing so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not it is right for your facility or project!

What Is Concrete Waterproofing And Why Is It Important For Industrial And Commercial Facilities?

Concrete waterproofing is a process that helps to prevent water from seeping into and damaging the concrete structure of a building. This is especially important for industrial and commercial facilities, as they are often located in areas with a high risk of flooding or other water damage. Waterproofing concrete can help to protect these buildings from costly repairs and extensive damage over time.

How Does Concrete Waterproofing Work, And What Are The Benefits Of Using It In These Types Of Facilities?

Concrete waterproofing works by creating a barrier between the concrete and the water. This barrier can be created using various methods, including coatings, sealants, or membrane systems. Each method has its own benefits and drawbacks, so choosing the one that best suits your specific needs is important.

Waterproofing concrete can help prevent water damage, mold growth, and other moisture-related problems. It can also extend the life of the concrete structure by protecting it from the elements. In addition, waterproofing concrete can improve the energy efficiency of a building by preventing heat from escaping through the walls.

What Are Some Of The Most Common Methods For Waterproofing Concrete, And Which One Is Best For Your Specific Facility Or Project Requirements?

Several common methods for waterproofing concrete include coatings, sealants, and membrane systems. Each method has its own benefits and drawbacks, so choosing the one that best suits your specific needs is important.

Coatings are a popular choice for waterproofing concrete because they are relatively easy to apply and can provide a long-lasting barrier against water damage. However, coatings can be expensive, and they may need to be reapplied periodically to maintain their effectiveness.

Sealants are another common waterproofing method that can be applied to both new and existing concrete structures. Sealants work by creating a barrier between the concrete and the water, which can help to prevent water damage over time. However, sealants may need to be reapplied periodically to maintain their effectiveness.

Membrane systems are a more permanent waterproofing solution that can be applied to both new and existing concrete structures. Membrane systems create a barrier between the concrete and the water, which can help prevent water damage over time. In addition, membrane systems can improve the energy efficiency of a building by preventing heat from escaping through the walls.

Which waterproofing method is best for your specific needs will depend on various factors, including the location of the facility, the type of concrete, and the budget. Therefore, it is important to consult with a waterproofing expert to determine which method is best for your specific project requirements.

What are concrete coatings?

Our epoxy floor coatings are a concrete resurfacing option that is installed over existing concrete floors for both interior and exterior concrete. All of our coatings are installed by hand (we do not use any stamps), thus giving our clients a true, one-of-a-kind floor. We install a wide range of flooring systems such as: 100% solid epoxy, concrete stain, acrylic cement, and rubber based products.

Clients have the ability to customize any coating with our various color options and design techniques. Concrete Coatings are used not only in residential, but industrial and recreational settings as well. ConTek Coating uses only the highest quality, industrial products on the market to ensure every customer is getting the best value.

How Much Do Your Concrete Floor Coatings Cost?

Each project is customized to your particular concrete flooring needs. Every job we do is different, because we offer different types of coatings and finishes.  We will work with you to develop a free estimate keeping your budget in mind. 

How Durable Are Your Epoxy Concrete Coating Systems??

We use only industrial products on all of our epoxy floor projects. They are designed to give clients the most value and longevity over any other coating material on the market. Just to give you an idea of how strong our products are, we installed an epoxy flake floor in the garage of a Fire Station in 2008 to protect the firehouse’s garage from dirt, debris, salt, and the extreme work environment. Due to our expertise and industrial coatings, we have yet to receive a repair call. Those same products are used in all of our residential projects.

How long does a typical epoxy flooring project take to complete?

A typical residential project takes approximately 3 – 5 days to complete depending on several variables. Variables include, but are not limited to: size of job, repairs and/or preparation requirements, weather, additional design details, customer requests, etc.

What if I already have an existing concrete coating?

We must grind off any existing coating and repair materials before we can install any of our concrete coatings. This ensures the integrity and longevity of our flooring systems.

How Long Do I Need To Stay Off My Concrete Floor Coating After It Is Installed?

If using 100% solids epoxy, your floor will be cured and walkable in about 12-18 hours. You can return to full heavy traffic after about 24 - 72 hours. Wait for at least 24 hours before moving light weight furniture on your brand new concrete coating flooring. Before moving anything heavy (car, equipment and furniture).

How do you prepare concrete for resurfacing?

We start every project by first preparing the concrete for our products. It is imperative that we have a fresh concrete surface before installing our concrete coatings on your project – this will allow our products to have only the BEST mechanical bond.

We spend approximately 66% of the project prepping your floor which may either be by diamond grinding or shot grinding the concrete (depending on the location of the project) and in some cases we do both! Some contractors will come in and just acid wash or not even prep your floor – we get calls all the time about botched installs with customers asking if we can save their project; we must start fresh every time.

Will I Need To Reseal My Concrete Floor Coating?

If you follow our maintenance and cleaning guidelines, you should not have to worry about resealing the concrete floor coating. We offer a professional grade cleaner that will easily remove stains or tire marks, but will also preserve the life of your concrete coating topcoat.

What If My Concrete Floor Has Cracks, Chips And Is Old?

No worries, we are experts in repairing existing problem areas of concrete. In some cases we have been found to be a cheaper alternative over tearing out and replacing existing slabs of concrete. Once we have saved your concrete we then install our decorative designs to hide the flaws and repairs.

How Do I Care For My Concrete Floor Coating?

You can clean our concrete coatings with typical sweeping or mopping. 

Will Oil Stain My Concrete Floor Coating?

Epoxy floor coatings are extremely resistant to most hazards, including cleaners, gas, oil, transmission fluid, and even most industrial chemicals. Our epoxy concrete coatings system is both oil and moisture resistant.

Who Invented Polyurea Coatings?

Andy Phelan, director of business development and training at Rhino Linings Corporation, explains, “Polyurea was invented in the early 1980s when a less moisture-sensitive form of polyurethane was desired. By replacing the hydroxyl group in the urethane with an amine group, a product we now call polyurea was formed.

What Are Polyurea Concrete Coatings?

Polyurea is useful for concrete floors, as it quickly and strongly bonds to concrete while providing a smooth, virtually impermeable surface that protects the floor from impact, water damage, chemicals, heat, and sunlight.

What Types Of Environments Can Epoxy Floor Coatings Be Used?

Epoxy flooring coatings can be used in a variety of environments.  The durability, slip resistant finish is fantastic for any industrial setting, storefronts or garages.

How Are Epoxy Floor Coatings Applied?

We have perfected a six step process for applying Epoxy Floor Coatings that involves prepping the floor, prime floor with epoxy primer, fill all cracks, holes with epoxy grout, then apply epoxy paint. 

Can I Apply Epoxy Floor Coatings In Cold Temperatures?

You can!  Epoxy can be used at cold temperatures but must be handled and applied with techniques adapted to cold temperatures.

Do I Need To Hire A Professional To Install Epoxy Floor Coating?

Installing Epoxy Floor Coating correctly is critical to the appearance and durability of your flooring.  Hiring a professional is the best way to ensure that your flooring will look amazing and last a lifetime! 

Does My Concrete Floor Coating Come With A Warranty?

We provide a 10 year warranty on your concrete floor coatings against peeling, delamination and wear for as long as you own your home.

"Austin applied a polyaspartic epoxy solid-color coating to our garage. The work -- which included grinding off the old coating and the application of three coats of polyaspartic (primer coat + 2) -- was done meticulously. The new coating looks great and the sand added to the primer coat has eliminated the slippery nature of the old coating. Austin was exceptional to deal with from start to finish. He communicated by phone, e-mail & text...always in a timely and totally professional manner. I highly recommend this company."

"We hired Austin to level our basement floors before we installed vinyl flooring. He was on time, a pleasure to work with, clean, reasonable and our basement floors look amazing. We recommend and we would use his services again. After the floors were completed he was kind enough to drop off a thank you and some delicious coffee for us try. Thank you Austin!"
