Epoxy Floor Coatings
If you have been looking at stained, unattractive or unsafe concrete for too long, the team at Concrete Stain and Epoxy can help. We install the best in epoxy floor coatings for residential and commercial customers in and around Provo, Utah.
What Is an Epoxy Floor Coating?
At its most basic, an epoxy garage floor coating is a type of plastic combined with other elements to form a strong, protective layer over concrete.
At Concrete Stain and Epoxy, we can create different types of epoxy floor coatings by mixing different ingredients. For instance, we can make epoxy coatings with excellent resistance to heat and chemicals. However, if you operate a warehouse, it may be more important to you to have an epoxy coating that stands up to extremely heavy loads without denting or scratching.
Customers are sometimes concerned with the reflective appearance of epoxy floor coatings because they look slippery. However, we can add components to your floor coating that make it slip-resistant.
How Is an Epoxy
Floor Coating Installed?
We start by preparing your floor to receive the epoxy. This includes deep cleaning, removal of stains and repair of cracks and dings.
Next, after the floor is dry, we put down an epoxy primer. Epoxy is excellent at bonding and will readily adhere to different types of material, so the primer only makes this bond stronger.
After this we apply the decorative material, we finish with a topcoat. It’s often a day or two before it’s safe to walk on your new epoxy garage floor coating and up to a week before you can drive on it.
What Are the Benefits of an
Epoxy Floor Coating?
For many customers, the biggest benefit of an epoxy floor coating is how it makes your concrete floor so much more attractive than it was. Even if you choose a solid color versus a pattern, your new concrete epoxy floor coating will make your old, dull floor unrecognizable.
Both residential and commercial customers appreciate the durability of an concrete epoxy floor coating, which makes your concrete seven times stronger. Plus, epoxy doesn’t shrink, so you won’t have to worry about maintenance.
Epoxy floor coatings are also extremely easy to clean. In fact, we tell our customers not to clean them with most commercially available cleaners. If you want to disinfect your floor, you can use a simple ammonia-and-water solution. It’s that easy.
How Much Does an Epoxy Floor Coating Cost?
One aspect of concrete epoxy floor coatings that is a big draw for customers is its cost. Compared to other floor coverings, epoxy coatings are relatively affordable.
Residential customers choose them over carpeting for their basements because they look great and last so much longer. Both residential and commercial clients love epoxy coatings for outdoor structures such as sidewalks, patios and pool decks that have lost their attractive appearance and useful function over the years.
