Epoxy Floor Installation

Burnaby Epoxy Flooring Experts

Epoxy floor coating, a two-part mixture of resins and hardeners, enlivens, protects, and updates concrete floors in garages, basements, sunrooms, and patios. Epoxy coatings require blending two separate components before application firmly adhere to concrete and are unlikely to chip or peel like regular garage floor paints.

Durability and their non-flammable nature make epoxy coated floors a choice for garages and basement workspaces. They are strong enough to withstand dropped power tools, carry the weight of rolling and parked cars, and stand up to spills of all kinds. When properly applied, epoxy floor finishes can endure for as long as 20 years.

Choose the Right Epoxy

Epoxy floor paints are tough resin-based paints that come in two separate parts mixed before applying. There are three different types of epoxy paint: solid, solvent-based, and water-based.

Solid epoxy: Solid Epoxy is the purest form of epoxy. It doesn’t contain solvents that evaporate. These products are expensive and difficult to handle because they harden very rapidly. This finish should be applied by a professional like us.

Solvent-base epoxy: Solvent-based epoxies contain from 40 to 60 percent solids. They penetrate the concrete surface and adhere well. They are available in a wide range of colors. Because the solvents are powerful and potentially hazardous, you must wear a respirator when applying the finish. You’ll also need to ventilate the garage and keep people and pets away from the garage.

Water-based epoxy: Like solvent-based epoxies, water-based epoxies also contain from 40 to 60 percent solids. The benefit of this type of epoxy is there are no hazardous solvent fumes. These epoxy finishes are sold at most home centers and hardware stores and are becoming increasingly popular alternatives to solvent-based finishes.

Pre-tinted and metallic epoxy floor coatings expand decorating options, especially when it comes to stylish flooring inside and outside living areas.

OUR MISSION

We aim to create and provide the healthiest, most durable, and easiest-to-maintain floors for commercial facilities.

Coverage Considerations

It is not difficult to apply epoxy floor coatings. It is almost as simple as rolling paint on a wall or across a porch floor. But before you begin, you need to thoroughly clean and patch the floor. You should also carefully calculate how much mixture is required to cover the area you wish to coat with epoxy. Many floor epoxy kits supply only one coat of coverage, and you shall need a minimum of two layers.

Time is of the essence once the epoxy paint and the hardener components are mixed. The epoxy mixture is only workable for about 2 hours. Consider this time frame as you determine how you will paint yourself out of a garage, patio, or room. We apply three layers of 100 percent epoxy with low or Polished Concrete Floor. We work primarily with concrete coatings and various floor coverings for residential, commercial, and industrial use, from single-car garages to airplane hangars. Our team undergoes factory training for all products we carry and install.
