Taking an in-depth look at Resin Floors

Friday, June 17th, 2022

With a resin floor installation being one of our most popular services, we wanted to tell you a little more information about why you should consider one for your garage.

This new blog will help you understand more about the Resin we use, the benefits, colour options and technical details.  We’ll also tell you a little more about the installation process and how you can get a quote for your garage floor.

Resin Floor - MMA Coatings for your garage floor

When you are looking for a garage floor that’s stylish, yet perfect for the garage environment, look no further than a seamless MMA (Methyl Methacrylate) Resin coating.

Unlike Epoxy coatings which can quickly peel or flake, MMA is very tough and can last for up to twenty years. And because we are so sure about the standard of the product, we give you a 10 year warranty so you get peace of mind that your new floor will last.

Please get in touch for an idea of price, all we need to know is the size of your garage in metres.

The Benefits of Garage Resin Floors

  • Resin provides a seamless and clean finish which won’t yellow or fade
  • 99% of installations are completed in one day
  • You can walk on the floor within one hour of installation
  • All our floors come with a 10 year product warranty
  • Our resin is UV stable so will not yellow or fade
  • Provides a fantastic finish which is extremely hardwearing
  • Easy to clean
  • Our system has high resistance to tyre marks and oil spills commonly found in residential garages
  • Our resin coating system is especially designed to withstand warm tyres which causes peeling on many other systems

Colours Options

We offer a great range of colour options in two flake options – small and large.

The choice of colour does not change the price.

 

You can choose from a range of colours and also whether you would prefer a smaller or larger flake to be used. Grey is our most popular colour and co-ordinates very well with our white wall panelling whereas the Slate Grey and Cobalt Blue provide a nice contrast. It really depends on your preferred colour scheme and how much use from vehicles your floor is going to have.

About The Installation

MMA is very quick to lay. For example a double garage can be completed in one day and walked on within an hour of the final coat being laid. Our lead time is 3-5 weeks for a floor only installation or it can be combined with a Complete Garage Makeover.

Our floors are installed using a five step process over the existing concrete including preparation, primer, flake and two coats of sealant, all laid to a depth of up to 4mm.  If your floor is badly tampered or pitted then a scratch coat may be required. Our resin coatings are designed for residential garages which we we have been laying in garages for 10+ years.

Please get in touch for an accurate quotation.

Technical Details

  • When laid, the floor will be raised up by up to 4mm
  • We only use Methacrylate MMA, a specifically designed grade resin for residential garages
  • Resin Floors should be cleaned regularly with a mop and water
  • The floor must be dry for the application to be successfully laid
  • We cannot breach any Damp Proof Course when laying the floor coating
  • During the preparation process, slight undulations may be removed but we don’t grind the floor to level
  • Our system is not a self-levelling system
  • The final coat of sealant is laid using a roller and occasional brush marks may be noticeable when looked at in different lights
  • As standard we lay two coats of sealant, any more is likely to cause the surface to become slippery
  • Whilst every effort is made to match colours, the final colour may vary slightly from any sample shown as will the finished surface
  • Our system has high resistance to tyre marks and oil spills commonly found in residential garages
  • Our resin coating system is especially designed to withstand warm tyres which causes peeling on many other systems
