What is an epoxy floor coating?
The term “epoxy is used to describe coatings that are created from two components, meaning, a combination mix of two different chemicals, referred to as “resin”.
Epoxy floor coating, compared to other types of resins for flooring, are the highest strength resin in the industry. They offer the strongest bond between the resin and reinforcement to the surface.
When properly cured, epoxy flooring offers a good chemical and heat resistance, and extremely low shrinkage.
Depending on the system used, they are available in a variety of sheens and colors.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is your work guaranteed?
We provide a one year warranty against cracking, peeling and installation defects.
How long does the standard coating take to apply?
Our floor coating process usually takes one to two days to complete.
What do I need to do to prepare my garage for installation?
All that we ask is that your garage is completely empty before we arrive.
When can I move my belongings back into the garage?
Once installation is complete, we suggest that you wait at least twenty-four hours before walking on your garage floor surface. We recommend that you wait at least one week before driving or parking your car in the garage.
Can your floor coating be installed if I have a moisture problem?
For a suspected garage floor with moisture problems, we do not recommend installing the coating. The moisture under the surface could cause the product to peel.
How do I know if I have a moisture problem?
If you have white, green, or dark spots in your garage, you could potentially have a moisture problem. A simple test will determine if you do have this problem. Take a trash bag and tape it to the part of the floor you suspect has the problem. Wait a day and then remove it. If a dark spot or water droplets appear under the trash bag, you have a moisture problem, and we do not suggest the coating system for your garage floor until the moisture problem is corrected.
What if I already have a coating on my floor right now; can I still get your product installed?
Yes. When you fill out our pricing form just select the Prep Current Top Coat option. On the day of your job start our representative will inspect your floor and explain the best option for removing any existing coating that may be on your floor.

Epoxy Coating Benefits
One of the most robust finishes that you can apply to a garage floor is an epoxy coating. The durable finish not only transforms your floor, rejuvenating the garage, showroom or commercial floor, but it also adds function. The finish is useful for preserving concrete surfaces, protecting it against impacts, stains and everyday wear all while giving a showroom feel.
Used for both commercial and residential applications, epoxy coatings have the following benefits:
- Epoxy is very durable and resistant to impacts, stains, surface abrasion, and chemicals. No need to worry about chemicals seeping through the concrete and leaving a harmful residue.
- Hides minor imperfections, such as small cracks, in the concrete.
- Epoxy is shock resistant.
- Concrete can become dusty! Epoxy is a sealer that helps prevent dust.
- Epoxy finish is resistant to certain levels of heat making it ideal for garage floors
- The finish is long lasting! No need to refinish for an extended amount of time.
- The smooth finish of epoxy will cause less deterioration to the tires of your car compared to concrete.
- Epoxy is moisture resistant, which aids in clean-up.

The Epoxy Floor Application Process
There are 3 recommended phases for applying epoxy. These are priming layer phase, the body coat layer phase, and the topcoat layer phase. With experience dating back to 2004, our painters understands the importance of each phase and what a quality application will mean for durability and longevity of the coating.
- The three phases creates a floor that is thicker and more durable than a floor that has only one of two coats of paint.
- During priming it is important that the primer absorbs deep into the floor, ensuring that the floor is in a good condition for application. A variety of techniques can be used to ensure proper absorbtion in this phase.
- During the second or body layer phase, filling in the floor’s visible holes and cracks using alternate methods, with epoxy will ensure a smooth, even coverage.
- The final topcoat phase consists of back rolling evenly, while keeping a wet edge. Decorative color flakes may be spread at this time via hand.
- The professional painters will cut the edges in by hand
- Once dried, all of the loose, decorative flake will be swept away.
- Epoxy is fast drying. Light weight items may be put back in after 2-3 hours, including foot traffic.
- Heavy items will need to wait 3-7 days (cars, machinery, equipment)
