If you are tired of having to constantly repair concrete floor paint in heavy traffic areas, epoxy flooring is just what you are looking for.
Premier Concrete Coatings of Westerville, Ohio, is the area expert in residential and commercial coatings that will make floors tougher, easier to maintain, and more beautiful.
Epoxy vs. Traditional Floor Paint
Traditional residential floor coatings are oil- or water-based paints that are easily damaged. Epoxy floor coatings are made of epoxy resin and a polymer hardener, offering versatile looks and incredible durability.
Traditional floor paint comes ready-mixed and dries after application. Epoxy floor coatings are mixed just before use and they cure, rather than dry, after application, leaving a much stronger surface that resists even chemicals, oils, and sharp impacts.
Traditional floor paints come in a narrow range of colors, but with epoxy floor coatings, the only limit is the customer’s imagination.
Traditional floor paints are cheap, but you get what you pay for. Depending on how much traffic the painted area receives, traditional floor paint can quickly start showing signs of wear. Over the years, the cost of repainting adds up in money, time, and inconvenience.
Epoxy floor coverings are more expensive at first, but they stay looking beautiful for 20 years or more. With years of virtually maintenance-free use, the initial outlay of epoxy floor coverings soon becomes the economical choice.
Commercial and Residential Epoxy Floor Coatings
Commercial Floor Coatings
The benefits of concrete flooring for commercial properties have long been recognized, and with epoxy floor coatings, concrete floors can match the design aesthetic of the property while offering superior durability and easy cleaning and maintenance. Concrete with epoxy coating can be seen in showrooms, restaurants, hotels, and office buildings throughout the country. Epoxy-coated concrete helps commercial buildings present a stylish exterior with beautiful entryways, sidewalks, and patios. Behind the scenes, kitchens and service areas benefit from its durability.
Residential Floor Coatings
Residential Concrete coating flooring is becoming more and more popular in residential settings. Traditionally, concrete has been used for garages, basements, driveways, sidewalks, patios.
Because epoxy floor coatings offer designers endless possibilities in color and finish, concrete is now being used in stylish kitchens, hallways, bathrooms, and even living rooms.
Garage Epoxy Flooring
Garage flooring has to stand up to serious wear and tear. Garages are often also used as storage and craft spaces. And so, in addition to being strong, concrete floor coatings in garages should be easy to clean.
In the past, the garage was often excluded from a home’s design scheme, making it unpleasant to spend much time in. If the floor was painted with garage floor paints, it soon became unattractively scuffed and oil-stained.
Today’s superior epoxy floor coatings make it easy to create a beautiful garage space with a floor that is highly durable, easy to clean, and as good-looking as the rest of your home.
Basements serve so many duties in American homes. They are used as storage areas and laundries. Finished basements are used as spare rooms and rec rooms. But as the climate changes and we face heavier-than-usual rainfall, basement floors are getting workouts they weren’t designed for.
Basement epoxy coatings provide greater protection against water than an earth floor can, but without an epoxy coating, water is still likely to seep through. Epoxy floor coatings offer an extra layer of protection, helping keep water from seeping up from the ground and providing an easy-to-clean and hard-to-damage surface should basement water appear due to leaks or seepage through walls or windows.
On top of all that, epoxy floor coatings make basement areas beautiful.
Decorative Concrete Coatings
Epoxy floor coatings give customers an endless choice of finishes. Decorative concrete epoxy coatings include quartz, customized flake colors, solid colors, and metallic. Using epoxy floor coatings, the look of solid marble or terrazzo is achievable for a fraction of the cost and with vastly reduced maintenance expenses.
The Epoxy Floor Coating Process
Whatever the size or shape of the job and whatever the desired effect, the epoxy floor coating process follows the same six steps:
- Cleaning the Surfaces
Technicians clean the surfaces to be finished with an epoxy floor coating by shot blasting and diamond grinding. Equipment is connected to powerful vacuuming systems to contain the dust created during this step of the process.
- Smoothing the Surfaces
After the surfaces are thoroughly cleaned, menders and fillers repair pits and cracks to provide a perfectly smooth foundation for the new epoxy floor coating.
- Applying the Base Coat
Technicians prepare and apply a base coat to ensure the stability and durability of the floor coating that will be applied over it.
- Hand-Casting the Flake
To add color and texture to your floor, technicians hand-cast flakes that are colored to your specifications.
- Scraping and Vacuuming the Flakes
After the base coat is completely dry and sufficiently cured, technicians scrape the surface to flatten any vertical flakes and then vacuum it to rid the surface of loose material.
- Sealing with Clear Coat
Finally, specialists apply polyurea floor coatings that are UV-resistant and protect the epoxy concrete flooring from the elements as well as regular wear and tear.
