Basketball Court Construction and Repair

Whether you want a basketball court for your backyard or you are in charge of the outdoor basketball court at a neighborhood park, you will need someone for basketball court construction or basketball court repair. At Sport Surfaces, we specializes in every type of court and sport surface you could need, which makes us the experts when it comes to installing a new basketball court or making repairs to an existing court. We can create both indoor and outdoor basketball court surfaces in any color and any size you need, including regulation full size and half size.

Full-Size Basketball Court

If you have the room, a full-size basketball court can be a great option for your family or for the local park or other location. With our full-court installation, we will provide you with a solid base of rock, followed by the application of the basketball court flooring asphalt that provides the hard surface on which you will play. Our professionals will even flood the court to ensure there are no low spots to negatively impact your game. Once the asphalt is in place and level, we will coat the surface with our acrylic resurfacing product to create the beautiful court you desire.

Half-Court Basketball Court

Not everyone has the room or the accessibility for a full-size court. When you are limited on space, a concrete basketball court surface can be a better option for you. Once the ground is leveled and properly measured, we will place a plastic vapor barrier to protect your court, followed by the concrete. We will allow the concrete to fully cure for 30 days and then flood it to find any low spots so we can repair them. Once the floor is level, we will coat it with our resurfacing product so your court is ready for hours of fun.

Sport Surfaces is proud to announce that we are using boflex products to surface your new Hardwood Sports Floor 

We have found that it is imperative that the surfacing product used is one of the most critical components in achieving a top quality job. We start by sanding or wet. It is sealed with multiple coats of UV-cured finish after sanding and laminated construction is completed. Following the floor installation and the Application of any games lines markings or logos, the floor should have two coats of urethane, such as Pacific Sport Lacquer. Once the final installation is completed, your floor will require regular maintenance. If you follow the guide lines below, your floor will remain clean, hygienic and in excellent condition. The lifetime of any hard wood floor depends on the type of use and maintenance it receives. The need to refinish will depend upon these factors and will vary from floor to floor.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

  1. PREVENTIVE ACTION
  2. DAILY/WEEKLY MAINTENANCE:
  3. REMOVING MARKS, ETC:
  4. TO RECOAT THE FLOOR:

As stated above, wood floors need to be reacquired from time to time. There are specific re finishing timetables for screening and recoating your floor. It depends upon usage and the regular maintenance the floor has received.

It is important to note that the top layer of finish is being subjected to all the wear and tear. We recommend that the floor be recoated within two years of installation to build up a strong wear layer. The following signs indicate a need for screening and recoating. NOTE. It is preferable to recoat in heavily used areas before  these signs occur, however, we do not recommend spot finishing unless the floor has already been recoated once.

  1. Wearing of the line markings.
  2. Wear in high traffic areas (i.e. indoor soccer goal areas and basketball keys).
  3. Wear on the floor immediately around and beneath goal posts and frames. It is wise to screen and recoat as frequently as required, using a small brush.
  4. Wear around entrance doors.Why wait for telltale signs of wear and tear? Consider your floor system as an important piece of athletic or fitness equipment—it needs regular maintenance and servicing. A recoating every 18-24 months will typically insure you need not have to totally sand and refinish. (Sanding the floor is a much more drastic process since it requires sanding all the way down to the wood. “Screening” on the other hand, is the process of simply roughing the surface prior to recoating with finish.)To remove marks and residue such as gum, wax or friction marks that periodic cleaning can’t eliminate, we recommend mineral spirits. Prior to applying the mild solvent, take a plastic paint scraper and carefully remove lumps of the foreign residue. Take care not to gouge the floor or scrape into the floor finish.The floor should be dry mopped or vacuumed regularly to remove all dust, dirt and grit. Once a week (or as often as required), the floor should be cleaned using a slightly dampened mop with a solution of water and a mild, low Ph deter gent. There are numerous cleaning deter gents that have been developed for hardwood floors and are available at most flooring retailers. Never use any cleaner that contains wax. NOTE. Do not “over-wet” the floor. All surface water should be dry mopped and re moved immediately.
  1. Provide areas for wiping off shoes, both coming and going at all entrances. We also rec om mend placing barrier mat ting at all internal doors to catch any remaining dirt and moisture.
  2. Do not permit the use of street shoes or boots inside the gymnasium.
  3. Ensure that users do not wear shoes with black rubber soles; they make friction marks on the floor that are difficult to remove.
  4. Ensure that moveable athletic equipment, tables, chairs, etc. which are used in the gym nasi um, are protected with rubber or felt contact pads. Experience has shown that gouges, scrapes and indentations are caused by improper protection and handling of these types of equipment.
