Epoxy floor coatings are NOT paint! Epoxy paint is a latex acrylic product. Many big manufacturers offer these products that have a VERY small amount of epoxy in the mix and market them as 1 part epoxy paint. High quality epoxy floor coatings will have 2 parts and a very high solids content. These 2 parts are the resin and the hardener. Before they are applied they are mixed together then spread on the floor. Unlike paint, which dries, epoxy floor coatings cure over time, cross linking the components. This provides a very durable surface that seals the concrete and makes the floor coating very resistant to, hot tire pick up, staining, scratching and chemicals.
This is caused for a couple reasons. A poor quality epoxy floor coating was used and improper surface preparation. As the tire cools, it contracts and pulls at the coating which can cause it to delaminate and stain. Stay away from the DIY kits and hire a professional with the proper tools to prepare the surface and apply a high quality industrial grade product.
Metallic epoxy floors share the same characteristics as other epoxy floor coatings. They are extremely durable, resistant to moisture, chemicals, impacts and scratching. The bright, shimmery colors come from a super fine pigment, very much like glitter, that is added in with the epoxy. These floors can be installed anywhere you want a floor to make a statement!
Yes!! Proper preparation and cleaning of the surface is extremely important. All coatings/sealers must be removed prior to the first coat being applied.
The cost of a garage floor coating depends on many factors such as floor preparation, square footage, complexity of job and quality of products used. On average epoxy garage floor coatings cost $4-$7 per square foot. This includes surface prep, minor repairs, coating materials and labor.
Floor coatings have distinct advantages over all types of flooring.
Absolutely!! Every one of our floors are ground, profiled and cleaned thoroughly before any floor coatings are applied. This will insure the coating bonds to the substrate properly.
For a normal garage floor coating the installation process takes 2 days. After that, you are able to walk on it and return any items in 12-16 hours. You can drive on it in 4 days after final top coat.
How long a floor coating system will last depends on several factors.
A high quality epoxy floor coating that is installed correctly and maintained properly should last more than 10 years.
