What is Epoxy Flooring?

An epoxy floor coating is usually two-part epoxy that you mix. It will stick to your concrete garage floor better than any other oil based, water base or enamel paint. It will give your concrete floor a stunning look that can rival any traditional paint. An epoxy floor coating is stain resistant once it has cured. It is easy to clean like a Teflon pan.

Epoxy flooring for commercial and residential use in East Dunbar

Based on 30 years’ experience, garage duty vehicles should have a minimum 20 mgs abrasion rating. A military grade topcoat is available for garages with large SUVs, Tractors, trailers, or are workshops. This version has an industry leading 4mg loss rating and is ready to take any abuse. Commercial duty traffic applications with pallet-jacks, forklifts and shop work (commercial or residence) must be less than 10mgs. The Commercial Package for garages is available if you don’t desire the flake-like appearance. It is also recommended that color flakes not be used in a workshop as it can cause difficulty when looking for dropped parts on the floor. For industrial applications and for those who simply want the best floor coating, a coating should be 23 mils thick. This is exactly what a ultra military system is for. It has a thickness of between 23 and 30 mils and a loss rating of 4 mg.

We have sold every kind of epoxy garage floor. Over the last 30 years, we have tested and installed every type of garage floor epoxy so we know what works and what doesn’t. There isn’t a perfect epoxy coating that will work in every application. This is why we offer so many epoxies. A common mistake is to apply an epoxy floor coat for applications it was not meant for.

The best epoxy all-around is 100% Aliphatic with a true urethane epoxy toppingcoat. It has an abrasion rate equal to a traffic load. If your budget permits, you can use a primer to improve adhesion and increase coating thickness. When epoxy garage flooring is being done, these are all good points to factor in.

I recently had my garage floor coated with epoxy by a local service, and I couldn't be happier with the result. The team was professional and efficient, arriving on time and finishing the job within the estimated timeframe.

Epoxy is the best choice of all flooring options. Epoxy is versatile. We have an epoxy coating system that can be used for almost any application, unlike rubber roll out mats which may not work on some applications. Epoxy gives a dramatic look, is inexpensive and lasts a long time, and is simple to install. It’s also waterproof and resistant to mold and mildew.

Is Epoxy Garage Flooring Worth it?

Epoxying your garage flooring is worth it. It gives you a professional look and resists oil stains. Color chips and custom paint colors disguise imperfections in concrete. Anti-skid additives give you the grip that you need during winter conditions.

Can You Epoxy Garage Floors by Yourself?

Epoxy coating concrete floors is just as simple as painting walls. However, as with painting, the key to success lies in the preparation work. The actual application will be easy once you have completed the calculations, made your color choices and cleaned up the target area.

For epoxy to bond properly, it requires a flat, slightly rough texture and a completely clean surface. This involves repairing any cracks and filling them before applying epoxy. Concrete must be at a minimum 60 days old and without having a sealing applied to it in order to bond with the epoxy. It is possible to tell if your concrete floor has a sealer by checking to see if water beads on it. Also, etching solutions that don’t foam will be a sign of a sealed floor. If the floor is not peeling, it can be repainted.

It is not possible to clean the floor by simply stripping it. It is important to clean and etch the floor properly. Grease or dirt can compromise epoxy adhesion. There are many cleaners on the market. Make sure you read all ingredients before choosing which one is right for you. Chemical cleaners come in many forms, including harsh degreasers, etchers, and safer but less efficient organics. A machine known as a floor maintainer can be rented for around $40 per daily.

Most epoxy coatings come as kits. You can then decide if you need additional supplies once you have chosen one. While manufacturers might recommend two coats, most standard kits provide only enough to cover one coat. You can add color flakes to concrete, which will hide its imperfections. However, you need to decide how thick you’ll spread them across the floor. To make it easier to clean the garage, you might consider covering the garage’s foundation a few inches higher than the ground. Next, decide whether you want an anti-skid additive. These granules give the floor a sandpaper-like finish. This option may be beneficial in areas with high ice or rain probability.

It’s all about timing once the floor is ready for coating. It is important to choose a day when the concrete will not be dampened by rain and the temperature is between 50-80 degrees. Otherwise, it can bubble or peel. One mixing the epoxy paint with the hardener will leave you with about 2 hours to apply it. This means that you need to plan how to best paint the garage floor. Waiting between each step is the hardest part. Drying time is typically 12-24 hours. You must wait for 72 hours to park your car on the entire floor after it’s dry.

What are the downsides to Epoxy Garage Flooring?

Epoxy floor coatings can wear prematurely due to its inability to meet industrial standards. This is not an issue with the warranty. The epoxy after time may also start to peel. The most common reason you will hear is that the epoxy was not properly prepped.

Temperatures of up to 180 degrees can be reached by the tires on your vehicle. It won’t absorb heat if epoxy is less than 10 Mils in dried thickness, especially if epoxy is used with color flakes. This can cause epoxy to lose some of its mass and make the epoxy thinner. These epoxyes won’t be strong enough to prevent epoxy from being activated by hot tires.

Epoxy flooring takes longer to install than rollout garage mats and interlocking garage tiles. Additionally, there are dry times between coatings. This means that epoxy flooring can take 2-3 days to complete a 2 1/2-car garage. However, the labor hours required to complete the job is only 6-8.

How long can garage epoxy flooring last?

It is a variable answer, and the answer is always the same as for how long a car can last. The epoxy lifespan depends on three things: the epoxy quality, the floor prep and how heavy the traffic is. The average epoxy coating can last between 20 and 25 years with the right military-grade topcoat. Applying new topcoats doesn’t require you to start over. All you need to do is sand the floor with 120 grit to clean it and roughen up the surface before applying a new coat.

How long does garage epoxy flooring take to put together?

Grinding your floor should take 2 days, acid etching takes 3 days. It takes only 3-5 hours to complete the work. However, acid etching requires that your floor dry before you can apply each coating layer. This extends the time by 2-3 days.

Is epoxy garage flooring suitable for commercial use?

Yes. We have many systems that can be used commercially with or without color flakes. Our team is available to answer your questions about our Commercial Epoxy Systems. Even “Garage Floor Epoxy” can be used for commercial applications, provided that the epoxy flooring primer has been applied and the military-grade topcoat is chosen. Metallic Epoxy Flooring is ideal for commercial applications because it has three layers of high-performance primer, military grade metallic epoxy, and topcoat that’s 4 mg abrasion-loss rated.

What is the cost of a epoxy garage floor coating?

Okay so this is a tricky question. With some caveats, we’ll answer the question. For less than $100.00, epoxy coatings are available at Big Box stores and online retailers. You can also buy a variety of other epoxies such as polyurea, water-based and cycloaliphatics. All have their own advantages and disadvantages. You also have military grade epoxy systems that can be used for different applications. We don’t offer a one-size fits all epoxy system like many of our competitors. The average DIY military grade epoxy floor kit costs between $1.15 – 2.25/sf, depending on whether you use a primer or topcoat, if color flakes are required, and what type of epoxy system is being installed.

You must also consider your total cost of ownership. Take, for example, the garage epoxy floor at $3,000. This epoxy will look great for as long as 20 years before it needs to be refreshed. Now consider the average epoxy floor that you can buy off the shelf for $200. This epoxy floor will look great for around 2-3 years before it has to get redone. Which epoxy is the most affordable in time and materials? Which do you consider as better value? The one that needs to be repainted regularly or the one that can last 20 years. The downside to epoxy coatings that are not waterproof is that they can become shabby much quicker than you think. Also, if it does get too worn down, you’ll have to start again. a new epoxy garage floor can be easy to sand and polish. A new coat of clear resin will be all that is needed to bring them back to their original glory. Our epoxy will last indefinitely. You can choose to spend the money upfront and never have to recoat, or to buy the epoxy that you only use once knowing it has to be recoated soon. This doesn’t take into account the time it takes to empty out your garage every few years and redo your basement floor.

Polyurea vs. Epoxy

Polyurea concrete finishes are an excellent choice if your budget allows for more investment upfront, but you want a lasting coating.
