Edging In to Start.
This is a three section prep and installation commercial job, this is the first phase in the first section:
WE are removing Carpet Glue and prepping the concrete surface. We are using HEPA filters on all the grinder to meet OSHA regulations and all codes. Safety for our workers and customers is very important to use.
This is a Special Top-Coat Application
We are sealing the floors of a new home which had micro cracks in the floor within a year of the foundation being poured. We hand sealed the micro cracks first and then applied a thin coating to seal the floor, it is awaiting a decorative coat from the owner of the house.
October 18, 2018 at the Cheshire Fair Grounds in Swanzey, NH. Come join us craving pumpkins, creating Pink Pumpkins to support Joy’s network, and have a great night of community fun.
The Festival is All day on Oct. 20 at the Cheshire Fairgrounds.
And don’t forget the Pink Pumpkin Challenge to Raise money for Joy’s Network here in Southwestern NH.
We finished by rolling on a Pure Polyurea top coat for UV stability and long term service live. This added texture on the floor. Ok we are not great photographers but we install a superior solution for our customers.
The coating protects the Water Chasing® vapor barrier primer and provides a finished final product.
Results are a good look with exceptional service life and wear performance.
This is the first half of a Sealing and Coating job in Swanzey NH. We applied a coat of Perma-Guard™ Water Chasing® Primer with a Top Coat with Slip resistance the next morning.
2nd day photos to come…….
Finishing Basement Water-sealing in Winchester, NH.
We cut in the Walls and Edges as the first step with Perma-Block™ Water chasing primer to start the installation. Then we sealed the center of the room after removing the tape and inspecting the walls and perimeter areas.
Misconception: Thicker Is Better
While it’s true that you need a certain mil(s) (one thousandth of an inch) thickness of material for a functional coating, it’s not true that when you’ve achieved the film thickness specified for job success that you need to apply more material.
It’s impossible to compare the thickness of one formula with the thickness of a competitor’s formula. For example, Company A may claim that its 1/4” thick coating is automatically better than Company B’s 1/8” thick coating. There’s no enforcement regarding actual thickness of a coating when it’s tested for physical properties.
However, a company with an underperforming formulation, or perhaps more focused on its profits, may encourage customers to use as much material as possible in an application. It’s possible that they may promote the falsehood that thicker is better to get customers to use more material and bolster performance through sheer quantity.
A formulation using higher quality and higher cost raw materials will perform better and cost more on a per mil basis, but it won’t need as much material to perform as good, or better, than a lower quality, less expensive material.
Companies promoting the misconception that “thicker is better” are likely offering poor quality products that are inexpensive. Avoid the false claim that you need 250 mils to get a good coating strength–possibly a result of the high filler content in their costing systems. A high performance coating using quality raw materials won’t need the same thickness to match, or exceed, the performance of a cheap, filler-laden coating. Thicker is not necessarily better.
