How epoxy is installed
We use a multi-stage process that we have used for decades and has proven it works. It begins with the tedious prep of your concrete slab. Our epoxy flooring contractors use a special material that will fill all cracks to halt any growth of the crack and ensure a strong bond is formed. The next step is a diamond wheel grind or shot blasting which profiles the concrete and opens pores for a stronger bond with our epoxy resin. If there was any previous coating in the area you wish to epoxy, it will need to be removed by diamond wheel or shot blast for superior bonding.
After the diamond wheel grinding or shot blasting, the area will be cleaned and a high-grade epoxy primer will be applied to the concrete for further strengthening in the bond. The next step is the fun part, depending on which type of epoxy you choose, we will either roll on the epoxy like paint or use a squeegee.
If you want to take a decorative approach, we can use different colors, metallic pigments, and even place logos into the base coats of your epoxy flooring. After all coats all complete and up to par with your specifications, the final step is a glossy clear coat which adds a “wow” factor in most cases. Epoxy is a self-leveling flooring system so no matter what, your epoxy flooring will be straight as an arrow!
