What Is Epoxy Floor Coating?
Epoxy is a strong material made from synthetic polymers that forms a plastic-like surface. Epoxy floor coatings are usually two-part solvent-based mixtures rather than a single component and consist of a resin part and a hardener.
Epoxy floor coatings are applied to cover a porous concrete floor, such as a basement floor, to create a smooth surface and protect the concrete from stains, moisture, and even minor-to-moderate impacts.
Types of Epoxy Coatings for Concrete Basement Flooring
Epoxy basement coatings are ideal because they help seal moisture out, unlike carpets and other floor coverings that may encourage mold and bacteria to grow. Epoxy basement floors are also easy to clean and maintain.
Epoxy flooring coatings may be:
Clear Epoxy or Grind & Seal
If your concrete basement flooring is in good condition and you want to retain the natural look, clear epoxy is the way to go. It enhances the natural look of the concrete while protecting the surface from stains and wear.
Metallic epoxy offers a modern look in a range of finishes and colors to fit any basement décor. If you’ve finished your basement as a family room or added a kitchen or bar area, a metallic epoxy floor coating is a stylish choice.
Solid epoxy floor coating systems are very versatile and, with a wide range of colors, styles, and finishes available, you can customize your floor easily.
Premier Concrete Coatings offers a variety of unique, beautiful basement flooring options, including:
Advantages of Waterproof Basement Flooring Coatings
Basement flooring always sees a lot of moisture, even if it’s are well-sealed. This can cause carpets and other floor coverings to feel constantly damp. When floor coverings never dry out, they become an ideal environment for mold, mildew, and bacteria to grow.
Epoxy is an ideal form of waterproof basement flooring that seals moisture out, both interior and exterior. Epoxy can also cope with a range of humidity levels.
Easy to Clean
Whether your basement is an extension of your home’s living space or a workshop area, keeping the floor clean is easy with an epoxy floor coating. The surface is smooth, so dirt and dust may be swept or vacuumed up fast, and wet messes mopped up quickly. Epoxy doesn’t require specialized cleaners either; you can clean any grubbiness with a dilute solution of hot water and ammonia.
Strength and Durability
Epoxy flooring stands up to high traffic and regular use—even heavy wear and tear from moving furniture around leaves no lasting effect on this durable floor coating. Once we complete your basement epoxy flooring installation, you won’t need to replace or even repair it for a long time.
From simple, brilliant flooring to decorator colors and patterns, an epoxy floor offers more visual appeal than plain concrete. There are many styles and colors available so that you can customize the look of your space.
Fire and Shock Resistance
Epoxy floor coatings are highly resistant to damage from fire and resistant to conducting electrical current. This makes epoxy flooring ideal for finishing a basement workshop or craft room where you will use electrical equipment.
Epoxy flooring is relatively inexpensive, even when you factor in the costs of maintenance and repairs, which are minimal. The overall price for an epoxy basement floor is very affordable.
Concrete Basement Flooring Resurfacing and Coatings
At Premier Concrete Coatings, we bring all our experience and skill to bear for every basement flooring installation, beginning with an evaluation of your basement. We talk with you at length, assessing what you need and want for your basement space and helping you choose the type of epoxy flooring you want.
We begin the installation process by prepping the concrete floor, thoroughly cleaning all the dirt and debris from the surface. Then we smooth the surface, grinding out any rough patches or unevenness so that the new epoxy coating lays evenly.
After cleaning, grinding, and sweeping any debris away, we fill in cracks or divots in the concrete floor surface. We also check for levelness to ensure that the epoxy lays out even when it is applied.
Once the surface is dry and ready, we apply the epoxy basecoat with a paint roller. The first coat fills in the pores of the concrete surface, smoothing it further in preparation for the coats of paint to come. After applying the basecoat, we add color flakes and leave it to cure.
Once the basecoat has cured, we apply more layers of epoxy, building up the finish as we craft the unique look you chose during the planning stages. Once it has all cured completely, we scrape the surface to ensure it is as flat and seamless as possible and vacuum any debris.
Then, a final sealing coat is applied to finish the floor, protecting it from stains and moisture and giving it a glossy shine.

What are concrete coatings?
Our epoxy floor coatings are a concrete resurfacing option that is installed over existing concrete floors for both interior and exterior concrete. All of our coatings are installed by hand (we do not use any stamps), thus giving our clients a true, one-of-a-kind floor. We install a wide range of flooring systems such as: 100% solid epoxy, concrete stain, acrylic cement, and rubber based products.
Clients have the ability to customize any coating with our various color options and design techniques. Concrete Coatings are used not only in residential, but industrial and recreational settings as well. Premier uses only the highest quality, industrial products on the market to ensure every customer is getting the best value.
How Much Do Your Concrete Floor Coatings Cost?
Each project is customized to your particular concrete flooring needs. Every job we do is different, because we offer different types of coatings and finishes. We will work with you to develop a free estimate keeping your budget in mind.
How Durable Are Your Epoxy Concrete Coating Systems??
We use only industrial products on all of our epoxy floor projects. They are designed to give clients the most value and longevity over any other coating material on the market. Just to give you an idea of how strong our products are, we installed an epoxy flake floor in the garage of a Fire Station in 2008 to protect the firehouse’s garage from dirt, debris, salt, and the extreme work environment. Due to our expertise and industrial coatings, we have yet to receive a repair call. Those same products are used in all of our residential projects.
How long does a typical epoxy flooring project take to complete?
A typical residential project takes approximately 3 – 5 days to complete depending on several variables. Variables include, but are not limited to: size of job, repairs and/or preparation requirements, weather, additional design details, customer requests, etc.
What if I already have an existing concrete coating?
Unfortunately, we must grind off any existing coating and repair materials before we can install any of our concrete coatings. This ensures the integrity and longevity of our flooring systems. If you have stamped concrete that has faded, please contact us for options in reviving it.
How Long Do I Need To Stay Off My Concrete Floor Coating After It Is Installed?
If using 100% solids epoxy, your floor will be cured and walkable in about 12-18 hours. You can return to full heavy traffic after about 24 - 72 hours. Wait for at least 24 hours before moving light weight furniture on your brand new concrete coating flooring. Before moving anything heavy (car, equipment and furniture).
How do you prepare concrete for resurfacing?
We start every project by first preparing the concrete for our products. It is imperative that we have a fresh concrete surface before installing our concrete coatings on your project – this will allow our products to have only the BEST mechanical bond.
We spend approximately 66% of the project prepping your floor which may either be by diamond grinding or pressure washing the concrete (depending on the location of the project) and in some cases we do both! Most contractors will come in and just acid wash or not even prep your floor – we get calls all the time about botched installs with customers asking if we can save their project; we must start fresh every time.
Will I Need To Reseal My Concrete Floor Coating?
If you follow our maintenance and cleaning guidelines, you should not have to worry about resealing the concrete floor coating. We offer a professional grade cleaner that will easily remove stains or tire marks, but will also preserve the life of your concrete coating topcoat.
What If My Concrete Floor Has Cracks, Chips And Is Old?
No worries, we are experts in repairing existing problem areas of concrete. In some cases we have been found to be a cheaper alternative over tearing out and replacing existing slabs of concrete. Once we have saved your concrete we then install our decorative designs to hide the flaws and repairs.
How Do I Care For My Concrete Floor Coating?
You can clean our concrete coatings with typical sweeping, mopping or steaming.
Will Oil Stain My Concrete Floor Coating?
Epoxy floor coatings are extremely resistant to most hazards, including cleaners, gas, oil, transmission fluid, and even most industrial chemicals. Our epoxy concrete coatings system is both oil and moisture resistant.
Who Invented Polyurea Coatings?
Andy Phelan, director of business development and training at Rhino Linings Corporation, explains, “Polyurea was invented in the early 1980s when a less moisture-sensitive form of polyurethane was desired. By replacing the hydroxyl group in the urethane with an amine group, a product we now call polyurea was formed.
What Are Polyurea Concrete Coatings?
Polyurea is useful for concrete floors, as it quickly and strongly bonds to concrete while providing a smooth, virtually impermeable surface that protects the floor from impact, water damage, chemicals, heat, and sunlight.
What Types Of Environments Can Epoxy Floor Coatings Be Used?
Epoxy flooring coatings can be used in a variety of environments. The durability, slip resistant finish is fantastic for any industrial setting, storefronts, patios, or even driveways or garages.
How Are Epoxy Floor Coatings Applied?
We have perfected a six step process for applying Epoxy Floor Coatings that involves prepping the floor, prime floor with epoxy primer, fill all cracks, holes with epoxy grout, then apply epoxy paint.
Can I Apply Epoxy Floor Coatings In Cold Temperatures?
You can! Epoxy can be used at cold temperatures but must be handled and applied with techniques adapted to cold temperatures.
Do I Need To Hire A Professional To Install Epoxy Floor Coating?
Installing Epoxy Floor Coating correctly is critical to the appearance and durability of your flooring. Hiring a professional is the best way to ensure that your flooring will look amazing and last a lifetime!
