Frequently Asked Questions

Some Of Our Most Common Questions

How long does it take to install a polyaspartic floor coating?

Typically 1-3 Days depending on size and the condition of your concrete. You can walk on it after 24 hours and drive on it after 3 days.

High heat and high humidity will increase cure speed and low temperatures with low humidity will lower cure speed which is why many polyaspartic manufacturers have quick cure and slow cure versions. On a hot humid day your first coat can cure in 20 minutes so hiring a professional will help to avoid a disaster

Does the floor coating have a bad smell?

Propel Garages only uses Zero VOC Polyaspartics.

Similar to using a zero VOC paint, it puts off no harmful vapour but it may have a very faint smell. Once cured it will put off no smell at all.

What if my concrete is in rough shape?

We will do multiple skim coats with a very high quality quick drying mortar if necessary to get your floor back to smooth with no cracks or pits visible in the final result. Only in extremely rare cases is a floor not able to be properly repaired.

Do you use Epoxy?

Polyaspartic is superior to epoxy in almost every application. Over a very large area or in a commercial or industrial setting, epoxy can be more economical and due to its longer cure time it allows a large area to be coated more efficiently with less installers.

A metallic style floor is done with epoxy. As the epoxy cures slowly and levels out it brings the metallic flake into waves and ribbon patterns, however a final top coat of polyaspartic would be our recommendation.

When installing slatwall what about my light switches, garage door openers etc?

All light switches, outlets, faceplates and garage door openers are pulled through the slatwall and installed cleanly on top of the slatwall and in many cases the loose wires which tend to be in everyone's garages can be neatly hidden behind the slatwall.

Can you install slatwall or floor coating material on my concrete or cinderblock walls?
