Does your outdoor basketball court need a makeover so you can keep on playing? If you you are ready to repair or resurface your existing basketball court, Sport Surfaces’ professional technicians are here to assist. We use a specialized surfacing system to ensure each of our basketball courts exceed customer expectations. Our game courts provide years of endless enjoyment with minimum maintenance.
Gradual wear and tear on acrylic basketball court surfaces leads to fading, flaking, “bird baths”, and even hazardous conditions. Proper maintenance for your basketball court is required for a stellar appearance, and a safe court surface. Asphalt basketball courts typically only require resurfacing every 4 to 5 years. However, it’s important to have them done by a licensed and insured professional you can trust.
The outline below is our step-by-step basketball resurfacing and repair processes, specifically designed for the harsh Florida climate. Note: All of the acrylics we use provide 100 percent UV protection for your courts. This allows the asphalt to remain moist and helps to prevent premature cracking.
BASKETBALL COURT INSTALLATION AND REPAIR WITH BARE CONCRETE
Bare concrete resurfacing requires unique procedures that must be carefully followed to avoid court failure. Through years of research and development, we have perfected a resurfacing system. We use proven techniques that allow the concrete to adhere well, and sustain many years of play.
⦁ Note: Your concrete surface must have a vapor barrier installed, a medium broom finish, and the use of a natural cure. We suggest using a professional basketball company to assist you when pouring the concrete.
⦁ Typical basketball court dimensions are approximately 50’x 94’. Please note: Court must have a minimum of 1% slope to guarantee water removal. Pressure cleaning and power blowing the basketball court is also necessary to remove dirt, debris, mildew and oil.
⦁ It is necessary to patch depressions greater than 1/8 inch, and smooth the ridges, as necessary.
⦁ We will fill existing cracks to ensure safety.
⦁ A bare concrete court must be acid etched with either muriatic acid or phosphoric acid. This will neutralize the alkalotic properties of the concrete, and allow the acrylic paint to more readily stick.
⦁ We then apply (2) coats of Acrylotex, a cementitious paint which has both the properties of cement and acrylics. This allows the paint to bond very successfully to the new surface.
⦁ The lines are then primed and painted using either the high school or NCAA specifications. Note: We can also convert your current tennis court to a basketball court.
BASKETBALL COURT RESURFACING ASPHALT OR ALREADY COLOR COATED CONCRETE
⦁ Please note: Specifications may vary depending on condition of playing surface. Application of 1 coat of acrylic resurfacer over entire basketball court area to fill voids and create a smooth surface.
⦁ Application of 2 coats of acrylic color concentrate (two-tone) to provide color over entire court.
⦁ Marking and painting of two-inch wide playing lines. These are formed with white, textured, heavy bodied acrylic latex paint, in accordance with high school or NCAA regulations.
