Basement Floor Coating Testimonials
“The basement has a history of flooding. We have replaced the carpet twice and were tired of it. A friend recommended the floor coating system. When we were told that there are no odors, no dust and no toxicity, we went ahead with thee project. We couldn’t be happier. Every representation was true. We have a beautiful floor with no worry that the flooding might cause any damage.”
Doctor, Fairfax, VA
“One of our long term projects was to convert the basement into a playroom for the kids. The polyurea floor coating was the perfect solution. No smell, one day installation, smooth surface, no problem if water comes into the basement and the color selection was consistent with our decorating.”
Architect, Ashburn, VA
“The floor is more beautiful than I could have hoped for!”

Our Basement Floor Coating Process
Garage Design Source takes the integrity of your floors—and our product—seriously. We know that the foundation of every quality floor coating project is in the prep work. Where many companies skip corners, Garage Design Source goes the extra mile to ensure that you have the ideal surface for our floor coatings to adhere to.
For every project, we begin by grinding the existing surface with diamond grinders—exposing a fresh surface and opening the pores of your concrete. This allows for better wicking into the surface, leading to better adhesion and a longer lasting floor. Floor preparation is crucial to the proper installation of the floor coating system. Without proper floor preparation, the floor coating liquids will not be able to penetrate and bond to concrete. To ensure proper bonding, a concrete grinder with diamond bits removes a slight portion of the top coat of the concrete, thereby opening the pores of the concrete and providing an anchor for adhesion.
After the floor has been ground a sufficient amount, we will ensure that all holes, divots, and uneven areas are filled, leaving you with a smooth, level surface.
Next, our floor coatings are applied and thoroughly checked for a smooth, even finish. Once the coatings have cured, we will apply a topcoat for added protection. The topcoat provides the ultimate protection against stains and normal wear and tear. A topcoat will also make cleaning the floor a breeze unlike other products on the market. Think of the topcoat like a clear coat for your car. The automotive industry doesn’t manufacture cars without a clear coat, do they?
Since we use a commercial-grade polyurea coating, your floors can be ready for foot traffic in as little as 6-8 hours!
