Our pricing is based on the square footage of your floor and the distance it is from us. These factors plus the desired design (game lines, lettering, logos, etc.) will determine this price. We would love to complete a site visit of your gym floor prior to estimating to get you the most accurate quote.
A typical sized gym floor will take our crew two days to complete. For larger gymnasium, additional days may be needed. Each floor will need somewhere around 48 – 72 hours to dry once we are completed, depending on if your floor is water based finish or oil based finish.
At praters we do recommend the use of water based finishes. Water based finishes are safer for the employee to apply (lower VOCs/harsh chemicals), they dry much quicker, and they are also clear as opposed to the yellowish oil based finishes that amber your floor over time.
We recommend using an alcohol based cleaner. Using the simple method of a push broom and towels with an alcohol cleaner once or twice a week is best. In between those days, you can sweep, dust mop, and tack the court with just water and towels (no cleaner). Our Praters Court Marshall gym floor cleaner is available here.
We recommend scheduling your gym floor services as far out as our schedule allows. We typically issue our next year schedule in the Fall. Our calendar books up months in advance…sometimes even further out for “prime time” dates (holidays, school breaks, etc.).
