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. You will get a more dramatic floor with an epoxy floor coating that has a high gloss finish that is unmatched by any other paint. It will also be waterproof and mold and mildew resistant. When cured, epoxy floors are stain-proof and can be cleaned in the same way as your Teflon pot.

Commercial and residential epoxy flooring in Alva

We have 30 years of experience and know that garage duty vehicle traffic should be at least 20 mgs. The military grade topcoat version is ideal for garages with big SUVs and tractor trailers. It can take all abuse that you can give it. You must be below 10mgs for commercial duty traffic with pallet jacks and forklifts. The Commercial Package for garages is available if you don’t desire the flake-like appearance. A work shop should avoid using color flakes as it is difficult to locate dropped parts on a flake-floor. If you are looking for industrial epoxy floor coatings or if you just want to get the best, most heavy-duty floor coating available, you will need a coating that is 23 mils thick and has a 6 mg rating. 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 is no such thing as a perfect epoxy coating for every application, nor is there a lifetime coating. We offer many different epoxy systems and epoxies. An epoxy floor coating that is not intended for use is one of the most common mistakes.

Our experience has shown that 100% Aliphatic is the best epoxy for all purposes. It’s combined with a true epoxy topcoat. This topcoat has an abrasion rating that equals traffic load. If budget allows, a primer is a good option to increase your adhesion, overall coverage and coating thickness. These are all good points to consider when you make an epoxy garage floor.

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 Garage Floor Coating: Why?

Epoxy is the best option of all flooring solutions. 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 is waterproof, mold and mildew resistant, and chemical-resistant.

Is Epoxy Garage Flooring Worth it?

Epoxying garage floors is worth the investment. The epoxy will not only give your garage a professional look, but also repels oil stains, water and can be cleaned like a kitchen counter. Color chips and custom paint colors disguise imperfections in concrete. Anti-skid additives give you the grip that you need during winter conditions.

Is it possible to epoxy a garage floor yourself?

It is easy to apply an epoxy coating to concrete floors. But, like painting walls, the trick is in the preparation. The hard part of the application will seem easy after you’ve done the calculations and made your color choices.

Epoxy bonds well when it has a slightly rough, and completely clean surface. This means repairing cracks and potholes will allow the epoxy to cure completely. Concrete must be more than 60 days old and unsealed for epoxy to adhere. 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 there is no peeling, you can recoat stained floors.

However, stripping the floor does not clean it. Cleaning and etching the floor should be completed thoroughly. Any grease or dirt could cause epoxy adhesion problems. Different cleaners are made by different manufacturers. Before you decide which type of cleaner is best for your needs, make sure to read the ingredients. Chemical cleaners are available in many different forms. They can range from powerful degreasers and etchers to more gentle, but less effective organics. Renting a machine called a “floor maintainer” for $40 per day can help you cut down on the work.

Most epoxy coatings come as kits. After you have selected the one you like, you can determine if additional supplies are needed. Manufacturers might suggest two coats or more of epoxy paint and topcoat. However, most standard kits only allow for one coat. Add color flakes to concrete. This will hide any imperfections. Be sure to measure how many you’ll apply them. For garages with foundations that rise above foot level, it may be worth coating the vertical surfaces of your garage to make cleaning easier. Decide if you want an anti skid additive. This is typically granules that give your floor a sandpaper look. This option may be beneficial in areas with high ice or rain probability.

It all comes down to the timing of applying the coating once the floor has been cleaned. 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 can be the hardest part. It takes anywhere between 12 to 24 hours for each step to dry. After the floor has dried completely, it is important to wait 72 hours before parking your car on the floor.

What are the downsides to Epoxy Garage Flooring?

Epoxy floor coatings often wear out prematurely. This is because the coating was not intended to be industrial grade. This is not a warranty issue. The epoxy can also begin to peel. The most common reason you will hear is that the epoxy was not properly prepped.

The temperature of your tires can reach 180 degrees. You shouldn’t use epoxy below 10 Mils of dried thickness. Color flakes, which can displace some epoxy under them, will make it less effective at absorbing heat. The epoxy you use will not be thick enough to absorb heat from hot tires.

Epoxy flooring does have one other drawback. It is more labor-intensive than installing rollout mat garage floors or interlocking tile garage floors. There also have dry periods inbetween coats, because of these the epoxy flooring process can take up to 2 days.

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. Epoxy longevity is dependent on the quality of epoxy used, floor prep before and traffic received. An epoxy coating of high quality with a proper military-grade topcoat can last 20 years on average in a garage application. Topcoats are easy to apply. Just a quick/light sanding with 120 grit is enough to make the floor look brand new.

How long does an epoxy garage flooring system take to set up?

For acid etching, you should allow for 2 days. While the labor required is approximately 3-5 hours, it’s important to remember that you must wait for your floor to dry after acid etching. Then you need each layer of coating to dry. The total drying time is therefore extended to 2-3 days.

What is the best epoxy garage flooring for commercial applications?

Yes. We have many systems that can be used commercially with or without color flakes. Contact our team for more information about our Commercial Epoxy Systems. Even “Garage Floor Epoxy”, can be used commercially if the epoxy primer and military-grade topcoat are used. Metallic Epoxy Flooring can be used in commercial applications. It has three layers that use high performance primer, military-grade metallic epoxy, and 4 mg abrasion resistance rated topcoat.

What is the cost of a epoxy garage floor coating?

This is kind of a tricky question. The question will be answered with some caveats. You can find epoxy coatings in a Big Box or online store for as low as $100.00. You can also buy a variety of other epoxies such as polyurea, water-based and cycloaliphatics. All have their own advantages and disadvantages. Military grade epoxy systems are available for various applications. We don’t have one solution that works for all. DIY military grade epoxy floor kits will average between $1.15 – $2.25/sf depending upon whether you use a primer, what kind of topcoat you apply, if you use color flakes or not, and what type of epoxy system your are looking to install.

What is the cost to own a property? 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. The average off-the-shelf epoxy will look new for about 2-3 years, until it has to be redone. So which epoxy costs less in time and materials? You can choose to have it repainted every 20 years or you can keep it topped up as and when it needs it. Other epoxy coatings will look worse than you might think. When it comes time to replace them, you’ll need 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. The epoxy that is used under the floor will not wear out. It’s up to the customer to decide which epoxy is best for them: the one that you use once, with a lower upfront cost, and permanent recoating. You don’t even have to consider the time and labor it will take to empty your garage, clean up and redo your flooring over and again.

Polyurea vs. Epoxy

Polyurea concrete coats are a great choice, if you’re willing spend more upfront to get a coating that lasts.
