What is Epoxy Flooring exactly?

An epoxy floor coat is usually a two-part coating that you mix. It adheres better to concrete floors than conventional oil-based, waterbased or enamel paints. Your floor will look much better than any conventional paint. It will have a very high gloss finish that will not only make it look great but also waterproof, mold, and mildewproof. 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 Telegraph Estates

After 30 years of experience, we know that for garage duty vehicle traffic, you need a 20-mg or lower 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 that use forklifts pallet jacks, or shop work (commercial or residential), you must have a rating of 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. 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. Our ultra military system has been specifically developed for such projects. It is available in thicknesses of 23-30 mils, and with a 4mg Loss Rating.

Our epoxy garage floors have been sold for over 30 years. We have also installed and tested every garage floor epoxy available so we know which ones work best. There is no such thing as a perfect epoxy coating for every application, nor is there a lifetime coating. There are many epoxy systems and epoxies that we offer. The biggest mistake people make is to use an epoxy floor coating in applications that it wasn’t designed for.

We find that 100% Aliphatic combined with a true, urethane epoxy topcoat is the best all-around epoxy garage floor. The abrasion loss rating of this topcoat should be equal to normal traffic loads. If you have the funds, a primer can be used to increase adhesion, overall coverage, and coating thickness. These are all good points to consider when you make an epoxy garage floor.

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. You can hide any imperfections in the concrete below with color chips or custom paint colors, and you have the anti-skid additives to give you the grip you need when it colder 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 hardest part will be the actual application once the calculations are done, as well as the color and cleaning choices are out of the way.

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 no less than 60 days old and unsealed in order for epoxy to adhere. If water beads are on your floor, or the etching solution does not foam, it is likely that the sealer has been removed. If the floor is not peeling, it can be repainted.

The floor can be stripped but this will not clean it. Grease and dirt can cause epoxy adhesion to be compromised, so cleaning and/or etching is an important step. 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. For $40 per day, you can rent a machine called floor maintainer.

Most epoxy coatings come in kits that include everything you need. Once you have decided on one, decide if you will need extra supplies. While some manufacturers recommend two coats for epoxy paint and topcoats, the majority of standard kits only have 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. For garages with foundations that rise above foot level, it may be worth coating the vertical surfaces of your garage to make cleaning easier. 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 all comes down to the timing of applying the coating once the floor has been cleaned. 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. Once you have mixed the epoxy paint, it will take you about two hours to finish the work. If you plan ahead, you should start in the back corner of your garage and work towards the garage door. Waiting is the hardest part. The drying time between each step can take anywhere from 12 to 24 hours. 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?

Two of the most common problems with epoxy floor coatings are that they wear out too quickly because it’s not industrial-grade, even though it has been claimed to be. This is not an issue with the warranty. The epoxy can also begin to peel. The epoxy is not prepared correctly is what you will most likely be told.

Your tires can heat up to 180 degrees. Any epoxy with a thickness below 10 Mils will not absorb heat, especially if it is coated with color flakes. These flakes can displace some epoxy underneath them and leave a thinner coating. 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 has one other disadvantage. It requires more work than installing rollout garage mats, interlocking garage tiles, because it requires drying persiods between coatings. Therefore epoxy flooring takes 2-3 days to complete. An average 2 1/2 car garage will take 6-8 hours to complete.

How long can an epoxy garage floor system last?

It’s a variable question that can be answered in the same way as how long a car can live. Epoxy longevity is dependent on the quality of epoxy used, floor prep before and traffic received. 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?

If you are grinding your floor, allow at least 2 days and 3 days for acid etching. 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. This extends the time by 2-3 days.

Do epoxy garage floors work well in commercial environments?

Yes. We offer several systems that are suitable for commercial use with or without color flakes. Our team is available to answer your questions about our Commercial Epoxy Systems. Our “Garage Floor Epoxy”, installations can be used in commercial applications if the epoxy flooring primer is used and a military-grade topcoat option is 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.

How much does a epoxy garage flooring coating cost?

This is a difficult question. It’s like asking the price of a car. We will answer your question with some caveats. For less than $100.00, epoxy coatings are available at Big Box stores and online retailers. There are many other types of epoxy you can buy, including water-based, polyurea and cycloaliphatics. Each has its own drawbacks. Military grade epoxy systems are available for various applications. We don’t have one solution that works for all. 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.

But the most important thing is to think about what your cost of ownership is. For example, let’s consider a garage epoxy floor costing $3,000. It will remain looking great for at least 20 years before it needs a refresh. The average off-the-shelf epoxy will look new for about 2-3 years, until it has to be redone. What epoxy is more affordable in time and materials? Which one is more expensive? The one that you have to redo every other year or the one that lasts for 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. New epoxy garage floors will need only a light sanding and a fresh coat of clear solution, while more worn floors require more work. The epoxy underneath will last for years. The choice is yours to make: do you choose the epoxy with the lowest upfront cost and the most frequent recoating? This does not include the labor and time it takes to clean out your garage and re-do your floor.

Polyurea or Epoxy?

Polyurea concrete coatings make a great choice for those who are prepared to invest more upfront in a long-lasting coating.
