We’re a group of professionals that uses proven tools and techniques to achieve long lasting epoxy flooring with a high-quality finish. We make sure to bring out the best results to keep up with this state’s demanding environment. Let’s discuss how floors are epoxied to give you an overview of our epoxy process.
Floor And Environment Analysis
It’s best practice for an epoxy professional to analyze the floor and the environment before doing anything. We can immediately provide you a quote and a work schedule after we’re done inspecting your floor.
By the way, here are the things that we will test before we start applying the epoxy coating on your floor:
- Floor area coverage
- Concrete floor porosity
- Floor moisture content
- Ambient temperature
Choosing The Right Epoxy
We will then choose the epoxy type that will suit your needs after determining the quality and characteristics of your concrete floor. Our next move will be estimating the amount of work and materials we need to prepare, which depends on the floor area. In addition, we will need to ask you about your aesthetic choices before suggesting you the best options for your floor.
We can determine the overall cost depending on your choice and the work we’ll need to do.
We don’t recommend performing DIY if you need to cover a huge area since preparing the equipment required and applying epoxy on a large surface area require a team and professional grade tools and materials.
The prepping process starts from this point. We will scrape hardened debris on your concrete floor and degrease oil spills if there’s any.
We will then wet the entire area and use a power scrubber. Next, we will pull the soapy water, remove the solution, and let it dry after cleaning the floor. Finishing all of these processes can take overnight, so we often need to continue working the next day to perform the next step in cleaning the floor’s surface.
Scrubbing And Etching
We can prepare an acid etching mixture using water and muriatic acid after ensuring that the floor is clean. Our specialists will then proceed with sprinkling and scrubbing the floor evenly. This process is crucial to ensure that epoxy will stick to the concrete surface. We will let the floor dry overnight after rinsing and flushing the acid and continue the work tomorrow.
However, note that we might skip this step depending on the conditions of your floor and use a different method to ensure that the epoxy coating will stick on your floor.
Epoxy Coat Application
We start this process by mixing the epoxy compound according to the manufacturer’s instructions and applying tape to protect some surfaces from the sticky mixture.
The next step will be using a primer to cover cracks and imperfections. After setting everything up, it’ll be time for us to apply the primary epoxy coating.
Our team will then proceed on applying the second coating, color flakes, UV protection, or aggregate filling, depending on your needs. After everything dried out, we can then proceed to remove the tapes, and you can enjoy your new epoxy flooring.
