Gear Up with Granite-Cote

Our customers who purchase Granite-Cote often use it to finish pools, including hotel resort pools, as well as garages. So whether you’re going swimming at the hotel pool while on vacation, or hanging in your buddy’s garage as he’s working on his 64’ Corvette, there’s a good chance you might be standing on top of a Granite-Cote finished floor.

And what makes Granite-Cote so great for these applications? Well as far as pools are concerned, it’s UV resistant and long lasting. Sure, many hotels like to update their pools every five years, but we’ve seen a lot of products on the market that only last three or four. We’ve seen Granite-Cote finished surfaces last for over ten years.

Granite-Cote is also great at holding up to hydraulic fluids and fuels—basically anything a car or airplane can dish out. And Granite-Cote is durable, but it’s not indestructible. So what happens if you do damage it? Well, that’s actually our favorite part about it. When you solid coat a floor and go to repair it, you can almost always see the repair. With Granite-Cote, good luck finding your patch job. It’ll blend right in and you’ll forget there was ever a problem.

On top of all this, it’s one of our best coatings for designs. It looks beautiful on its own, but when you start incorporating multiple colors and blends, and intricate shapes some truly breathtaking results are possible. Granite-Cote looks great, it lasts, and if against all odds you damage it, it repairs better than almost anything on the market.

Quality Coatings, Quality Service

Here at Veron we cater to our customers. Our standard turnaround time is three to four business days, shorter than most in our industry. That’s because we bend over backwards to get you what you need to get your job done. And when your deadline is even more trying, we can still come through. When necessary, we offer same day turnaround.

We also make sure the products we ship are of the highest quality. To use an example familiar to those who have pets, over the past few years the price of a bag of dog food has remained consistent, but the bags have gotten smaller. The same thing happened in our industry. Prices stayed the same but quality took a hit, and a big one at that. The main components of many coatings were taken out, replaced by cheaper resins and powders. That kept prices low, but ravaged quality.

At Veron we never thought that was an acceptable trade-off. There’s no upside to a poor quality coating. It reflects negatively on us, it damages the reputations of the contractors we supply to, and it frustrates customers. For a contractor, there’s no point in using a cheaper coating when it means that they have to keep returning to the same jobs after the coatings wear out prematurely.

Our coatings here at Veron have better weathering resistance and better chemical resistance than those of the competition, because we never sabotaged our products. We’ve taken the brunt of rising material costs and, when necessary, pulled some coatings off of the market. But as times change and construction rebounds, we bring those coatings back online.

This is all our way of taking care of our customers, and in turn their customers—by providing coatings when you need them at the high quality you expect.
