Installation Process

In this basement we removed asbestos tiles that were glued down with liquid asphalt. The concrete floor was then grinded down to remove the tar and prepare the surface for the installation of the vapor barrier coating. Right after the first application of epoxy yellow vinyl, flakes were thrown widely in the wet epoxy and were left to stick and dry for the next 24 hours. The next step was to vacuum the loose vinyl flakes off the floor and lightly scrape the floor to flatten the surface. The final step was to apply a clear coat of the epoxy over the vinyl flakes. This gives the floor a smooth finish and covering the flakes prevents them from getting ripped off the floor. In this basement we did not apply any hardener coat over the epoxy because the floor is not used for vehicular traffic. In a garage floor or any vehicular trafficked area, a layer of urethane would need to be applied to harden the surface of the epoxy finish. This last process prolongs the wearing of the floor and also protects it from any UV light coming through the window and doors. Gappsi provides Epoxy floors solutions to all residents on Long Island for both Nassau and Suffolk County NY.

Award Winning Masonry Design By Giuseppe Abbrancati Gappsi

Award Winning Masonry Design By Giuseppe Abbrancati GappsiThrow Back Time 1998

Award Presented To: Giuseppe Abbrancati Gappsi
The water in this faux pool is hard enough to support people who wish to get a view of the softer water just yards away. Adjacent to a catering hall, the roof plaza deck is a subtle metaphor: hold a great pool party without getting wet. The illusion of the water’s motion is cleverly introduced into the pattern, even in the whirlpool bath. The pavers rest on a thin layer of bedding sand over a waterproof membrane. Paving stones were custom colored and manufactured by Nicolock

Is it necessary to seal pavers and why

Best Long Island Paver Restoration CompanyIs it necessary to seal pavers and why

Yes! Concrete pavers should be sealed. Paving stones are manufactured with the highest quality cement, but cement is a corrosive material that wears under natural elements.
The sun, rain and cold, can easily wear the surface of pavers, and a good sealing job with the right sealing product, applied by a professional technician of sealing, will create a layer of protection over the paving stones making them water repellent and weather proof. This will protect the concrete surface from corrosion.
A good sealer penetrates the paver surface and stays there for many years, even if the look of the sealer goes away, the color and texture of the pavers will stay new.
