What type of coating systems do you use? Most companies just use Epoxy, don't they?
PremierGarage® floor coating systems are a revolutionary new hybrid polymer chemistry manufactured exclusively for PremierGarage. PremierGarage systems are superior to Epoxy from the standpoint of installation time and return to service, UV resistance, abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, long-term durability, maintenance and shine.
My house is brand new. How will you prepare the floor before coating it?
We start by grinding any areas of concrete or stucco spillage, then oil and grease stains are treated and degreased. We then prepare the concrete to be coated by grinding the surface. Other companies acid etch or sandblast the concrete, which is not sufficient to create proper surface bonding.
I have some small cracks in my floor. What will be done with these?
All open cracks including those in your expansion or "tool" joints, if applicable, will be repaired. Additionally, larger surface imperfections will also be repaired. Extensive crack and/or patch repairs may be subject to additional charges.
How long does the entire process take and when can I put my car back in the garage?
To ensure a permanent bond, our floor preparation process includes diamond grinding the concrete and filling cracks and chips before applying the coating. A garage floor can take as little as a single day to prep and coat and the cure time is typically 24- 36 hours depending on ambient humidity and temperature. Your Tailored Living representative can quote the installation timing of your floor.
What is the best method to clean my new floor?
We recommend mixing 5 - 6 ounces of CLEAR ammonia per gallon of water in a mop bucket. A large headed string/rag mop works best, with a wringer mechanism on your mop bucket. For PremierGarage fine chip systems, we recommend hosing the floor with a standard garden hose with spray nozzle attachment, then utilizing a foam squeegee (available from PremierGarage) to remove the excess water from the floor. Special Note: Do NOT use soap-based product as these leave a film which reduces the shine in the floor and can also become extremely slippery when the floor gets damp or wet.
How long will my floor last?
PremierOne® is guaranteed not to chip, peel, or fade. Contact your local Tailored Living representative for more garage floor coating warranty details.
What are PremierGarage cabinets made of?
All of our cabinets are made from industrial-grade particleboard finished on both sides with thermally-fused melamine laminate. This material will not delaminate, peel, bubble or discolor, and cleans up with a soft cloth and household all-surface cleaners. Cabinet shelving and the top and bottom decks of our cabinets are made from 1" thick materials for strength and durability.
Why do you mount all of your cabinets off the ground? Don't you need additional support?
Traditional garage cabinetry is built on top of a pedestal, or a "toe kick" that becomes a perfect nesting place for pests and bugs. These pests eventually find their way into your home. Mounting the cabinets off the floor eliminates this potential home for critters, and reduces the likelihood of water damage.
How are your cabinets put together? In my last house, they were all stapled together and falling apart.
Ah, rest assured that at PremierGarage, no wood will be subject to abuse from staples, as we never use a single one! All of our cabinets are built using the European 32mm system, the same as is used in fine cabinets and furniture. Back panels are locked into a "dado" groove, which adds strength and interlocks the cabinet. Behind this back is a wall attachment member glued and screwed to the side panels. All interior side panels are drilled for easy, precise shelf adjustment.
Sounds pretty nice. How long do they take to install?
Our professional installers arrive at your home with cabinetry ready to install. Using 3" long, hardened steel installation screws, we mount each cabinet directly to your studs, install shelving, hang doors, mount handles, and, of course, clean everything when complete. While most installations are completed the same day, some make take less or more, depending on size and complexity of the job.
So, will I have to refinance my house to afford this quality system?
We sell a premium, high-grade product at a fair price considering the materials, workmanship and attention to detail that goes into each system we install. Our systems are sold by the cabinet box, or module. Each piece is priced separately, so you can design your own system to fit both your needs and budget. Our systems are also easily expandable, so you can add onto your system as your budget allows.
