What is Epoxy Flooring?

Epoxy floor coatings are usually two-part coatings that you mix. They will stick to concrete floors better than any oil-based, water-based or enamel paint. Think epoxy glue type adhesion instead of duct tape adhesion. It will give your floor a dramatic appearance that no other paint can match. The epoxy glue type adhesion will be stronger than duct tape adhesion and will make it waterproof, mold and mildew-proof, as well as being tough as nails. When cured, epoxy floors are stain-proof and can be cleaned in the same way as your Teflon pot.

Epoxy Flooring for Commercial and Residential Use in Charleston Park

After 30 years of experience, we know that for garage duty vehicle traffic, you need a 20-mg or lower abrasion rating. We offer a military-grade topcoat version for garages with big SUVs, tractor trailers, or workshops. It has an industry-leading 4mg loss rate and can withstand all kinds of abuse. For commercial duty traffic, you should have less than 10mgs of abrasion rating for pallet jacks, residential or commercial shop work. If you don’t want the color flake look, the Commercial Package is ideal for garages. Color flakes should not be used in work shops as you may find it difficult to find parts on flake flooring. Industrial applications or those who want the strongest epoxy floor coating possible, you should apply a coating of 23 mils or thicker. The ultra military system was specifically designed for these types projects, with a thickness of 23-30 millimeters and a 4mg loss rating.

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. We offer a variety of epoxy systems and different epoxies. The biggest mistake people make is to use an epoxy floor coating in applications that it wasn’t designed for.

We believe that 100% Aliphatic epoxy with a true Urethane epoxy topcoat, which has an equal abrasion-loss rating is suitable for the average traffic load, is the best. If possible, use a primer this will increase your adhesion as well as overall coverage and 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 Garage Floor Coating - Why Choose It?

Epoxy is the best choice of all flooring options. Epoxy is flexible and can be used for any type of application. This is in contrast to rubber rollout mats which might not work well for certain applications. Epoxy gives a dramatic look, is inexpensive and lasts a long time, and is simple to install. Epoxy is also water and mold-resistant, as well as chemical resistant.

Is Epoxy Garage Flooring Worth the Investment?

Epoxying your garage floor is worth the effort. It not only looks professional, but it also resists oil stains and beads of water. 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?

The process of applying an epoxy coating on concrete floors is the same as painting walls. But like painting, the real trick lies in the preparation. After the calculations, color selections, and cleaning are completed, the actual application is easy.

Epoxy bonds well when it has a slightly rough, and completely clean surface. It is important to patch any cracks or potholes before apply epoxy garage flooring. Concrete must be at a minimum 60 days old and without having a sealing applied to it in order to bond with the epoxy. The epoxy will not adhere to concrete floors that have been sealed with sealants. Water beads or foam can be used to tell you if concrete is already sealed. If there is no peeling, stained floors can be refinished.

However, stripping the floor does not clean it. It is important to clean and etch the floor properly. Grease or dirt can compromise epoxy adhesion. Different manufacturers offer different types and brands of cleaners. Be sure to check the ingredients before you decide on which one you prefer. 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. Once you have decided on one, decide if you will need extra supplies. Although manufacturers may recommend two coats of epoxy paint or topcoat, most standard kits will only provide enough for one coat. Color flakes can be used to hide imperfections in concrete. You need to determine how much you will need and then spread them across your floor. You may also want to coat the garage’s vertical surfaces if the garage’s foundation is higher than the floors surface. Next, decide whether you want an anti-skid additive. These granules give the floor a sandpaper-like finish. This could be an option in areas where there is frequent rain or ice.

The timing is everything once the floor is clean and ready to be coated. You should choose a day when your concrete isn’t damp from rain or when it’s between 50 to 80 degrees. Otherwise, the epoxy paint and hardener can bubble and crack. 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 cons of Epoxy Garage Flooring?

Epoxy floor coatings are prone to premature wear due to the fact that it isn’t suitable for industrial use, despite being advertised as such. This is not a warranty issue. The epoxy after time may also start to peel. The floor will likely not have been properly prepared. This is usually due to the epoxy quality.

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. You won’t be able to use any of the other types of epoxy mentioned above. They won’t have enough thickness or strong chemical cross links to stop the epoxy being reactivated by 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.

What is the life expectancy of epoxy garage flooring?

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 do not require you to start from scratch. A quick/light sand with 120grit of the topcoat is all you need to clean and rough up the floor before you apply a new topcoat.

How long does it take for epoxy garage flooring to be installed?

Allow 2 days for grinding and 3 days for acid-etching. 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. You can expect to wait for your floor to dry after acid etching, which will take about 3-5 hours. After that, you need to let each layer of coating dry. This could extend the drying time by 2-3 days.

What is the best epoxy garage flooring for commercial applications?

Yes. We offer several systems that are suitable for commercial use with or without color flakes. For more information on our Commercial Epoxy Systems, please contact our team. Even “Garage Floor Epoxy”, can be used commercially if the epoxy primer and military-grade topcoat are used. Metallic Epoxy Flooring works well in commercial applications, as it is made up of three layers with high-performance primer and high-build military grade metallic epoxy. The topcoat is military grade 4 mg and has a low abrasion rate.

What is the cost of a epoxy garage floor coating?

This is a difficult question. It’s like asking the price of a car. We will answer your question with some caveats. You can find epoxy coatings in a Big Box or online store for as low as $100.00. Between us there are other types of epoxies, such as water-based, polyurea or cycloaliphatics, which are all discussed with their respective drawbacks. There are military grade epoxy solutions for various applications. Unfortunately, we don’t make one epoxy fits all solution. A DIY military-grade epoxy floor kit will run you between $1.15 – $2.25 per square foot depending on whether you use primer, topcoat, color flakes, and which epoxy system you choose to install.

You must also consider your total cost of ownership. Let’s take, for instance, a garage epoxy floor for $3,000. It will last for 20 years without needing to be repainted. 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 actually more expensive 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. Another thing to remember about epoxy coatings is their tendency to look shabby faster than you think. You will need to start over when it is time to redecorate. A new epoxy garage floor will require a light sanding in order to clean it and to roughen it up, before applying a coat of clear solution to make it look brand new. The under epoxy we use will last forever. The choice is yours to make: do you choose the epoxy with the lowest upfront cost and the most frequent recoating? This is without even considering the labor required to empty your garage and redo your floors over and over again.

Polyurea vs. Epoxy

If you’re willing to spend more upfront on a durable coating, polyurea concrete coatings can be a great option. 

Frequently Asked Questions about Epoxy Garage Floor Installations

Is epoxy strong enough to walk on?

While it takes 5 days for epoxy to cure, your floor may be dry enough to walk on after 12 hours or so and ready for light use after 24 hours. Be cautious, however, as these timeframes are not applicable to all situations. The colder and less humid an environment, the longer the process.

Can you epoxy over old epoxy garage floor?

Yes. Since the epoxy has cured a chemical bond is not possible so what is called a mechanical bond is needed. This simply means that the cured epoxy has to be lightly sanded before the next coat is applied: the first coat should have a matt, almost white, surface.

Can you hose down epoxy garage floor?

You can use a pump-sprayer or garden hose to mist the floor, it is not necessary to completely saturate the floor with water. Next, use a soft-foam squeegee to pull the water out of the garage — the foam will remove dust, dirt, light stains and debris with it.
