While some property owners opt for placing a new concrete slab after removing a failed garage floor, Finalcrete is the better solution. This inexpensive, two component, early strength repair material requires less preparation work so both costs and time are saved. As a contractor, you’ll be impressed with the variable mix ratios that make Finalcrete the one solution easy to use for filling cracks and patching surfaces in garages and a host of other applications.

Normally, you will not need to deal with sub-grade preparation beneath the original slab in garages because the problem is more about surface chips and concrete wear . Pieces of the concrete break away, fracture or hollow out under the weight of the truck or car sitting on top of it. That’s where Finalcrete works best since this specially formulated polymer admix will stick to all concrete surfaces. It is self bonding with no failure at the bond line and has the ability to maintain adhesion even under strain.

Garage floors take a beating from salt and freeze-thaw conditions when you factor in the weather. When you look at Finalcrete’s specifications, you’ll see this is the product that takes seasonal adjustments into account and it is workable in all temperatures between 10°C and 35°C, cleans up with water and doesn’t require any specialty concrete repairs tools.

Surface spalling is another common repair you’ll need to tackle. Often caused by salt residue or too much hydration in the original concrete mix, the result is a lack of bonding between the portland mix and the aggregate. Preparing the floor surface for a solid substrate is the first step and taking advantage of Finalcrete’s versatility is the second. Finalcrete can accommodate widening crack repairs and the physical stress of the freeze-thaw movement.
