Preventing Premature Coating Failures

PhotoJan3170945AMDo your newly coated floors already look foggy or scratched? Even in high-traffic areas your floors should be able last more than just a couple of months before looking worn down. When dealing with premature coating failures, there are three questions we need to ask. What went wrong, what is causing the coating failure, and what exactly can be done to fix it?

The Problem

More often than not the cause of your coating failure can be chalked up to human error. Sometimes, rather than going with the right solution, contractors will choose the solution that gets a job done fast to appease not only the client’s schedule but their own. The problems you experience can be the result of your contractor’s decision to:

  • Apply a new layer over a base layer which isn’t properly cured
  • Apply coatings in the wrong weather conditions
  • Apply mismatched coatings (impact resistant vs. flexible)
  • Mix coatings at the wrong ratio

These improper application problems not only lead to dull floors, but also to more wasted time for both the floor coatings company and the client as the job gets redone (and hopefully redone right this time).

The Solution

Getting your floors recoated is a big job for everyone involved, especially when you consider that all of your equipment will have to be moved and you’ll be facing down time. The best way to keep your floors looking brand new is to hire a floor coatings company that will make the right decisions to meet your needs, not the fast or easy ones. After all, you shouldn’t have to adjust your work life to baby your floors.
