Premium Garage Floor Installations in FL by Legacy Industrial

Legacy Industrial's floor installations division has been installing premium flooring systems for discriminating home-owners and estate manager's throughout Central Florida.  The floor pictured is located in Keenes Pointe, Windermere, FL.

These flooring systems are installed by factory trained and authorized Legacy Industrial installers, Legacy Industrial licensed franchise owners and Legacy's own garage installation crews.

These floors take approximately 4 days to install depending on the condition of the floor being prepared and the system level that is selected.  Most floors are completed using this process:

  1. Diamond Grind floor surface with a dust collection system in order to achieve a proper profile.
  2. Edges and stationary items are hand-ground wherever a walk-behind machine cannot reach.
  3. Floor is swept and vacuumed. 
  4. Re-coating an existing epoxy floor will include a surface sanding/scuffing and a solvent wipe.
  5. Cracks are filled and ground flush.
  6. Joints are left as-is unless customer requests a filling and grinding prior to the proposal process.
  7. Apply a high solids epoxy primer coat (extremely important to the final result and longevity of the system)
  8. Apply a 100% solids epoxy base coat (the highest grade of epoxy coating available)
  9. Optional: broadcast decorative flake in, light, medium or full-chip density.
  10. Optional: Apply a Moisture Cured Clear Urethane Glaze over top with optional skid resistance (Soft-Skid)
    1. We highly recommend this urethane glaze on every project, it will quadruple gloss longevity, chemical resistance, scratch resistance and UV protection.

Concrete stem wall color matched to floor color for continuity

How to prepare garage floor for epoxy?

Vac used to control dust
Weight added for better grinding
Coating removal is not fast or fun but neccessary
How do I prepare my garage floor for coatings? How do I remove paint from my concrete floor?
Where do I rent a diamond grinder? What diamond grinder do I rent?

These are the questions we hear everyday from woeful DIY clients looking to make the home garage into a GARAGE MAHAL, MAN CAVE, BROMANSION, etc....

If you have floor coatings on your floor your best bet is to rent a small walk behind diamond grinding machine. The smaller machine (single head) is good for around 1000 sq ft.

If you have greater than 1000 sq ft consider a dual head machine for added efficiency and power.

The machine pictured is made by Edco and is very popular at rental houses. Rents for 200-250.00 per day. Edco recommends the strip-serts for coating removal and dyma-serts for concrete grinding.
