There are certain areas in a house or commercial establishment where heavy equipment is stored and hard, tedious work is done. These areas require a concrete coating that could withstand such use and abuse. And that is exactly what epoxy flooring is designed for. The coating is made up of two equal parts of an epoxy resin and polyamine hardener. When mixed together and applied thinly on the floor, it hardens to a very tough surface that is resistant to most types of damage.
Epoxy Floor Coating Installation Process
Although epoxy kits are available for DIY use, it is highly recommended to let a pro deal with it. It is quite a hard material to work with and it requires careful surface preparation beforehand. Here is a glimpse of how it is installed:
- Step 1: The concrete floor is inspected and prepared. It is tested for moisture issues and minor cracks and dents are filled in and repaired. The entire floor is also cleaned to make adhesion more effective.
- Step 2: The two parts, resin and hardener, are blended together and the first coating is poured and spread using a roller brush.
- Step 3: If you choose to incorporate some micro paint chips for a terrazzo effect, you may fill the entire floor and sweep off the excess once the initial coat has dried.
- Step 4: A second coating is applied to hold the paint chips together and to give the floor a seamless finish.
How Much Does Epoxy Flooring Cost?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to epoxy flooring. It offers such huge benefits that people may think it would cost a lot. However, it is quite a cost-effective solution. The total epoxy flooring cost will be greatly influenced by several factors, such as how wide or large the floor size is. Other factors include the amount of surface preparation or repairs needed prior to installation and any other custom services requested to make the epoxy flooring unique.
