ONE NIGHTERS NEVER LASTPHOENIX, Ariz. – October 17, 2011 – It could happen to anyone; you, your grandma, your best friend, your boyfriend or your dentist. No one is safe. It can happen in the morning, at lunch or even during dinner. You give in to your impulse and immediately get the feeling you don’t want to feel – regret.
We’ve fallen for them before and will probably fall for them again. "For a Limited Time Only", "Lifetime Guarantee", "Free Installation". So many amazing deals, they all seem too good to be true. Then comes the ad that hypnotizes you with its beauty and there’s no turning back.
You see it on TV or in the glossy pages of a magazine and it seduces you with its sensual pictures and unbelievable promises. Before you know it, you’re reaching for the phone and making a call that you won’t be able to blame on the alcohol. It’s too late to turn back…the phone is ringing and there is a voice. Within minutes you have given your name, address and credit card number and will anxiously await the arrival. You hang up the phone and reality sinks in. What did I just do? Am I even going to like it? You can’t even look at yourself in the mirror; you don’t recognize this impulsive person.
A few weeks go by and you are happy with the finished product. Just when it seems like things are going well, it all changes. Something’s wrong with the product. You call customer service only to be put on hold. No one can answer your questions; you’re frustrated and feel rejected. You thought you were going to be together forever, but alas, the promises they made to you were broken.
Don’t put yourself through this pain. Garage Floor Coating is committed to you forever. It starts with the consultation, followed by installation and finally by gratification. Our lives will be forever intertwined by our warranty. We don’t block your calls or change our status to "It’s Complicated". We are in it for the long haul and will show you every day that we care. There’s no regret associated with our relationship, only mutual satisfaction.

ARE YOU GREEN WITH ENVY?
GARAGE FLOOR COATING.COM THINKS YOU SHOULD BE
PHOENIX – September 20, 2011 – Garage Floor Coating is going greener, both in its products and in its offices; telecommuting is one way they’re doing it. The company has decided that since its coating process is now green, emitting zero VOCs (volatile organic compounds), the company wants its workplace to be green too! Sure, they could just paint the place (which they did), but is that really going green you ask? So, they finally decided to telecommute on Fridays instead of working at the office. Or, is it just a clever ruse to avoid CEO Robert Hanson? Well, maybe both, but it certainly does decrease their carbon footprint nonetheless.
It also cuts down on electricity usage. By telecommuting to work instead of being in the office, the A/C isn’t turned on, there’s no water running, and the lights are off—although the folks at Garage Floor Coating.com do occasionally wander around in the dark anyway.
The Garage Floor Coating.com staff really wants to go above and beyond and do their part to help our planet—and catch an Oprah rerun or two on Fridays. This company wants to keep our world clean, and even though they only telecommute one day a week, they know that every little bit can help. By telecommuting, they can save the world, one online work day at a time.
So, consider following the example set by the Garage Floor Coating.com team, and try working from home once in a while. You’ll save energy. You’ll decrease your carbon footprint. And you’ll have time to look for an even better job away from the prying eyes of your employer.

What about the Recession? Letter from the CEO
With the downturn in the economy over a year ago, the country and much of the world is experiencing some of the roughest economic times in history. During this time, Garage Floor Coating.com has proven to be very resilient and has experienced rapid growth.
We ended 2006 with two locations, and a presence in two states. By the end of 2008, we will have at least twenty-five locations, operations in over fourteen states, and will have grown 100% during just the last year; one of the worst years in decades for our economy.
Garage floor coating and enhancement remains the fastest growing segment in the home improvement industry. I started this company in 1995, and we are at least five to ten years ahead of every competitor in knowledge and technology. We have even accelerated our research and development efforts this year to widen the gap further.
The concrete coating industry is only widely established in Arizona, largely due to our efforts. We have eight locations in Arizona, and we are the dominant company. Everywhere else in the country, awareness and popularity has just started growing.
Roughly 98% of the concrete in America has not been coated. When we go to a new market, if there are any competitors, we are able to compete on price, quality, experience, technology, and customer service. We actually like having competitors, because they help us build awareness of the process in the communities.
If you are motivated and ambitious, and want to dominate the market in your area, then I want to speak with you. Once you see what we have to offer for a very reasonable investment, I trust and believe you will want to be a part of our team. I highly recommend you speak with some our dealers who have capitalized on the opportunity, and see what they have to say.
Please contact Phil Liddell at 1-800-939-1990 if you would like schedule a time for us to speak.

Garage Floor Coating.Com Receives 2008 Best of Plano Award
U.S. Local Business Association’s Award Plaque Honors the Achievement
WASHINGTON D.C., April 4, 2008 - Garage Floor Coating.Com has been selected for the 2008 Best of Plano Award in the Production Painting category by the U.S. Local Business Association (USLBA).
The USLBA "Best of Local Business" Award Program recognizes outstanding local businesses throughout the country. Each year, USLBA members are asked to identify companies that they believe have achieved exceptional marketing success and overall customer satisfaction in their local market and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and community.
A record number of surveys were submitted this year by members from all fifty states. The awards represent excellence in local business and rate the best local businesses in three different categories: Marketing, Image and Community.
Eighty-eight percent of the surveys were submitted via the Internet this year, compared to seventy-four percent cast online last year. Twelve percent were received via fax and mail, supporting the premise that local businesses are gradually moving away from traditional methods of communication. To ensure accuracy, surveys were subject to three audits using a variety of technologies.
The 2008 USLBA Award Program focused on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the overall merits of each category rather than how many votes a local business receives. USLBA members are asked to assign a number between one and 10 to the local business he or she votes for. The popular vote is still important, however. To be eligible to win a 2008 USLBA Award, a program must receive at least 1 percent of the popular vote to qualify.

Garage Renovation Heats Up and Garage Floor Coating.com to Offer Dealerships In The North
Robert Hanson, CEO of Garage Floor Coating.com announced this week that the company will now offer licensed dealerships in northern USA and Canada, while continuing to grow its franchise system in the southern USA.
According to Mr. Hanson, that while the housing market has continued its decline, garage enhancement remains very popular, and the trend is growing across the country. Additionally, people having difficulty selling their home due to the market are opting to renovate their garage as a way to improve their home. Not only does it make them feel better about where they live, but it also adds intrinsic value, which can help sell the house if they so choose. "Garage enhancement, and specifically garage coating is generating a lot of interest in the entire country and Canada, and not just the southern states" said Mr. Hanson. "Unfortunately in the colder climates, garage enhancement is a much more seasonal business, and a full time concrete coating franchise will experience down-time. We see this as the most logical approach because it will allow us to expand our reach and service the northern markets." The cost to become a licensed dealer is five-hundred-dollars for the license fee, and sixteen-thousand-four-hundred-dollars for the necessary start-up products and training.Dealers will be required to operate under their own name, and will be permitted to conduct business in over half the country. They are not granted any exclusivity of territory or product purchasing, but will receive the proprietary products and process innovations that the company has been developing and perfecting for twelve years. GarageFloorCoating.com began twelve years ago, when most people had never even heard of coating concrete. In 1996, Robert started his business in Phoenix Arizona with a truck and an employee and has since expanded across the entire state. The company has also established franchise locations in Washington, Nevada, Texas and Arizona.

Garage Floor Coating.com founder Robert Hanson warns consumers and concrete coating companies that polyaspartic polyurea one-day-systems are a "recipe for disaster"
Concrete coating expert Robert Hanson of Garage Floor Coating.com cautions consumers and coating companies about quick cure one day coating systems. Commenting on a recent article in Residential Concrete Magazine that reports contractors are discovering that polyaspartic polyurea quick cure systems increase profits and are good for the customer, Robert Hanson, Founder of Garage Floor Coating.com warns that polyaspartic polyurea one-day-systems are a "recipe for disaster."
In an article in Residential Concrete Magazine written by Jeanne Fields, "Garage Floor Coatings Pickup Speed", Fields reports that contractors are discovering that polyaspartic polyurea systems increase profits because of their quick installation time. Source: RESIDENTIAL CONCRETE MAGAZINE Publication date: December 15, 2007
"Our concern is that the public is being misled about the capability and performance of these products," said Hanson. "The allure to the customer is the promise of a coated garage in just one day. Many companies are jumping on the one-day-system bandwagon. When the products fail, the cost and time to remove the coating and re-apply proves very costly as well as a major inconvenience to the customer. We learned the hard way several years ago when we had to re-coat close to one- hundred floors due to failures with the one-day-systems. It’s a recipe for disaster."
Hanson went on to say, "we recommend epoxy/polyurethane systems which have been used in residential and commercial applications for over 25 years. They are the most commonly used products with the longest history of performance success rates. Epoxy resins are very versatile. They can be water based or 100 percent solids. There are several different epoxy hardeners which can allow epoxy resins to bond to damp concrete or have regular, fast or even cold cure abilities. And as far as top coats, there has never been a product better than a two component, catalyzed, chemical resistant polyurethane. This product has been used commercially in aircraft hangars and automobile dealerships for years. It is resistant to oils, fuels, acids, as well as many other chemicals. Polyurethanes also have excellent wear, hot tire, and UV stability. Sometimes, for financial reasons, a business like an auto repair shop cannot shut down for more than a day. In this case, we will apply the one-day-system, but we educate the customer about the product before it is installed."
Headquartered in Phoenix, AZ, Garage Floor Coating.com has been coating concrete for over twelve years. Now operating in Arizona, Nevada and Texas, the company continues to expand through franchising, with eleven franchise locations and an aggressive growth strategy. The projection is for two-hundred franchised locations across the country within the next three to five years.

Robert Hanson, CEO of Garage Floor Coating.com Comments on New Home Depot Report that Blames the Housing Market for 2007 Profit Drop
Garage Floor Coating.com founder Robert Hanson believes that garage renovation will continue to be strong despite a recent Reuters report regarding Home Depot that blames the slumping U.S. housing market for its 27 percent drop in third-quarter profit.
November 29, 2007 - Garage Floor Coating.com founder Robert Hanson believes that garage renovation will continue to be strong despite a recent Reuters report regarding Home Depot that blames the slumping U.S. housing market for its 27 percent drop in third-quarter profit.
It was January of this year, and the height of the housing market slump when Robert Hanson, founder of the Arizona company Garage Floor Coating.com (www.GarageFloorCoating.com), began franchising nationally. Today, the company has nine franchises, with locations in Arizona, Nevada, and Texas, and is forecasting continued growth in 2008.
"We have established franchises in four states just this year, and plan to at least double that next year," said Hanson.
When asked about the impact the recent real estate troubles have had on business, Mr. Hanson had this to say.
"Consumers have reason to renovate their garage regardless of the state of the housing market. When the market was hot, people spent a lot of money on their homes; and often tens of thousands of dollars just renovating and upgrading their garage. Now that the market has softened, and financing has gotten tighter, people are turning to their garage to add living space, visual appeal, and intrinsic value to their homes."
In January of 2006, the ten year old corporation embarked on the mission to deliver a franchise system with the most highly advanced technology and support systems available in today’s franchising industry.
"Our support systems lower the financial burden on our franchisees significantly," said Hanson. Traditional overhead like retail space, administrative support, and telephone coverage have been alleviated with the use of integrated technology and communication systems."
Additionally, franchisees get off to an exceptionally fast start. Joyce Chmura, Franchisee Operations Manager, ensures that the franchisees get the VIP treatment.
"We have a process that will have the franchisee in a revenue position less than two months after signing the franchise agreement if that is what they desire," said Chmura. "When our franchisees place their confidence in us and come aboard, they have a legitimate sense of urgency in getting their franchise operating immediately. We share this sense of urgency with them, and work extremely hard to get them up and running quickly, since our success is directly tied to the success of our franchisees."
Garage enhancement is now the fastest growing segment in the home improvement industry. Now more than ever, new homes are built with garages that house at least two cars. In 2005, 84% of all newly built homes included a garage that could accommodate at least two cars. Also, 82% of homebuyers agree that the garage is an important factor in making a decision about purchasing a home.
For an approximate investment of two-hundred-thousand-dollars, GarageFloorCoating.com franchisees are provided with all of the necessary equipment, tools, materials, and technologies. They receive custom built software for estimating and order fulfillment in the field, intranet software, Web sites, corporate branding, advertising and marketing collateral, a managed advertising program, a centralized call center, and extensive training and ongoing support.
Founded in 1996, Mr. Hanson started the business with a single truck and employee and has since grown the business to well over one hundred completed customer jobs per week in central Arizona alone. GarageFloorCoating.com is the leading innovator of the garage floor coating process and uses only the highest quality products available. The company's research and development team tirelessly researches future technologies to ensure they stay years ahead of the competition.

ARIZONA’S GARAGE FLOOR COATING GIANT ENTERS FRANCHISING
COMPANY POISED TO DOMINATE NICHE IN THE HOME IMPROVEMENT INDUSTRY BY DELIVERING ONE OF THE MOST HIGHLY ADVANCED FRANCHISE SYSTEMS EVER DEVELOPED
January 25, 2007 - In January 2006, Robert Hanson, president and CEO of the Arizona Corporation GarageFloorCoating.com, was reflecting on the multi-million dollar revenue concrete beautifying company he had built over the last ten years. Like many successful businesses, the time had come to consider long term growth and expansion strategies. Franchising was determined to be the best choice to expand GarageFloorCoating.com across all of the United States and Canada. When they decided to franchise, the team wisely turned to the industry experts to ensure that it delivered a first-class franchise with the same integrity and reputation as the company, GarageFloorCoating.com in Arizona. After conducting its research, The Franchise Builders, Inc., also based in Arizona, emerged as the ideal partner to bring Garage Floor Coating Franchise System, Inc. into the 21st century. "Building a franchise is a challenge to say the least. We determined that to be responsible franchisors, we needed to develop and provide the most highly advanced franchise support systems ever created. The Franchise Builders was the only organization able and willing to deliver everything we asked for and more," said Hanson.
"It started with a lot of discussion about the enormous untapped markets that exist all around the country, and franchising emerged as the most attractive option to meet our expansion goals," said Hanson. "We've been coating garage floors for a very long time, and the knowledge and experience we've gained over the years perfecting the final product will be a huge asset to our franchisees."
GarageFloorCoating.com began beautifying concrete over ten years ago, when most people had never even heard of coating concrete. In 1996, Robert started his business with a truck and an employee and has since grown the business to well over one hundred completed customer jobs per week in central Arizona alone. GarageFloorCoating.com has become the most recognized concrete coating company in the southwest USA, and the garage enhancement market is now the fastest growing segment in the home improvement industry.
For an approximate investment of $200,000, GarageFloorCoating.com franchisees are provided with all of the necessary equipment, tools, materials, and technologies. They receive custom built software for estimating and order fulfillment in the field, intranet software, Web sites, corporate branding, advertising and marketing collateral, a completely managed advertising program, and a lot of training and coaching. The franchisees are supported after start-up with technology updates, Web site maintenance, advertising management and continuous training.
All of the advertising will be conducted and managed by the corporate office. A centralized call center has also been established to manage all customer leads and deliver them electronically to the appropriate franchisees. This frees up the franchise owners to focus on customer service, and managing and growing their franchise business.
GarageFloorCoating.com has perfected the art of epoxy sealing and molecular bonding to create a beautiful end product. It is the original developer of this process and uses only the highest quality products available. The company's research and development of advanced chip and polymer systems has created techniques that transform once ugly and stained concrete, to floors that are eye-pleasing and resilient to almost anything thrown at them.
The company is offering the franchise primarily in the milder weather states but recently conducted tests in Canada, and it has developed cold weather technology for garages and basements. Expansion plans are to franchise throughout the entire United States and Canada over the next five years.
