Hmm I don't think we've had any experience with them either. Just got done watching a few YouTube videos to check to see if I would recognize them. Sorry wish I could help you out. Good luck!

Re: Elite Crete Systems


Sounds like a nice spot to live. I would guess it's not cheap if they left it out. I did a full chip floor in my garage this fall. Out of curiosity I called to see what a few guys charged and it was around 4 bucks a square ft. We spent almost half the cost on products and supplies. Turned out well but I can see why they charged that much.

Re: Elite Crete Systems


As a competitor with integrity, I'll admit I haven't heard any poor reviews of elite crete systems. However, they can be pretty expensive depending on which product you go with.

The most common complaints we get are from folks who picked up a cheap epoxy floor kit at HD or Lowes. Then it fails and they come to us for something that'll last longer.

Heated floors can be coated as long as the heat is not on while the coating is curing.

I'm an Elite Crete certified installer. I've been using their product for about two years. I personally love the floors. Their tough, durable and look good. To install an individual would have to go to a class at a nearby distributor. It's only a two day class, you should check it out.

Re: Elite Crete Systems


Elite Crete used to have good epoxy. Their resins are crap now.

Their powdered materials are half decent.

Their urethane is junk.

They don't actually manufacture their materials like they claim.

Re: Elite Crete Systems


Make sure they are using a vapor barrier primer. VB5 if they insist on Elite Crete.
