I am sooooo pleased with your product. I was feeling defeated only a few weeks ago. Your product was a godsend. It did everything you said it would! The final results with the epoxy top coat, turned out great. Being a 64 year old woman, I am pleased to say “I did it by myself”. Thank you so much.!

We have had great experience with the product. We use it as a primer over paint, tile, wood – this is the primer we use to bond with Miracote Micro-Topping when we resurface floors. We buy Perfect Primer from Specialty Solutions because it is a great primer. We use it to cut down on the work of removing paint, glue etc.

I just wanted to write to you regarding your PerfectPrimer product. I have been using this product for several years, and especially this past year. I use it for crack repair, priming of cut back glue floors and over existing tile. I am very satisfied with how well it covers, and it is very easy to use. I would recommend this product to anyone. Try it and you won’t be disappointed.

I’m sending you note, concerning your PerfectPrimer. We used it on a basement floor covered with carpet glue and old paint. The reason for using this product was to eliminate the ‘labor intense’ surface prep work of diamond grinding or bead blasting the floor prior to application of a cementitious overlayment, without jeopardizing the integrity of the overlay’s ability to bond with the substrate. Not only did we save money and time on the prep work but also, once the PerfectPrimer coat was applied, had a highly bondable and consistent surface for our overlayment to adhere to....

Dear Sir, We want place another order of the PerfectPrimer product. We are so pleased with this product because it has reduced our surface prep time by days! In the past we have had to grind the concrete to remove layers of glue and mastic but now we simply clean the existing surface with a neutral cleaner and degreaser and then roll over the surface with the PerfectPrimer. Twelve hours later we are ready to apply our micro-topping. Thanks again for introducing us to this product! It is a labor saver. Thank you again. Regards,

Wanted to say thanks and how impressed I have become by PerfectPrimer. I just got back from inspecting a potential nightmare of a job where Seam Perfect performed as promised. Six months ago, we did coatings on a basement floor that had several obstacles. It was an older historic house with very narrow stairways, which prevented us from getting the grinding equipment that was needed to prep the floor for our overlay system. Plus, the floor was prone to moisture, and covered with Cut-Back glue and tile mastic. After attending your seminar I decided to give PerfectPrimer a chance on this project...

I must say that I am happy with the results I have experienced with your product, as it has performed as you have claimed in all respects to overlay preparation. One one site I removed Marley tiles, removed most glue with scraper and placed your primer over that. Second site was a B&B with some major cracks. This customer has had a bad experience with a previous contractor whose work has cracked after only 4 months, due to neglecting to repair cracks prior to installing his overlay.

This letter is to acknowledge my experiences using your product PerfectPrimer. I have used this product for over 4 years now and love it! I have had nothing but success in the many jobs I’ve done. My clients have commented on how amazed and happy they were that we did not have to demolish, grind, and create dust in order to get their job done. For example: I had a job in 2007 that was a clay floor (satillo tile) that the clients did not want to pay for the removal of...

I wanted to let you all know how much we enjoy using your product, PerfectPrimer. It’s cutting our prep time in half and allowing us to take jobs we probably would not have taken otherwise. I have attached before and after pictures. This was a pool deck that had kool deck coming up in several places. We would not have taken this job if grinding was our only option. We love your product and it’s helping our business stay profitable!!!


Dear Sirs: We are in the decorative concrete business, applying GraniTite spray-on granite Coating and concrete overlay stains. We ordered our first bucket of SeamsPerfect Base Coat in April of 2009. This has changed the way we look at some of the challenges that we encounter. We have used SeamsPerfect successfully to prep surfaces such as ceramic tile, painted concrete and many other jobs where we are concerned about preparing a good bonding surface...

Pete Jones - President

Dear Sirs, It was a pleasure talking with you the other day. I just wanted to send you a note on my recent experience with your product. I had a customer that had an overlay system applied to their patio. The stain the contractor used had all but faded away. Instead of removing the existing sealer, we used our floor sander to cleane the surface and applied a coat of your primer, then applying one of our coatings in the customer color of choice....

Dear Sirs:, Just wanted to let you know that I repaired 30 feet of cracks with the PerfectPrimer, TrueGrit and the fabric. I mixed the grit dust with PerfectPrimer until it was a putty consistency and used a putty knife to fill the cracks. I then brushed PerfectPrimer over the crack, applied the fabric and then brushed another coat of PerfectPrimer over the fabric.....

It was great talking with you the other day. I wanted to share my delight in finding your product just in the nick of time. I own a decorative,re-surfacing concrete company based out of Delaware. We had just completed turning 20 year old concrete, which was failing, cracking and looking bad, into what looked like granite. I pulled the color off of an existing stone wall. All the trades working on this property loved it and kept asking how I did it.

I have been using the Perfect Primer for several years now. I work in all fields of decorative concrete from overlays to epoxy coatings. I must say the Perfect Primer lives up to its name. I have not used a grinder to prep a floor since using the Perfect Primer. Many jobs that I once may have had to walk away and not bid, or bid them high to cover cost of running a grinder; I now can be really competitive with my pricing. It saves so much time and labor. The prep work is cut down tremendously. My regret is that I didn’t find it sooner in my business operations. Great way to put money in your pocket and save your back and that of your crew.
