The Process of Epoxy Flooring


Having the right type of flooring for your garage space is essential whether you are a weekend hobbyist or are setting up a commercial garage to work on cars for customers. One of the easiest and most versatile options for any garage floor is a commercial epoxy garage floor coating. This coating is durable and lets you decide what color, pattern and texture you will have.

Pouring the Epoxy
Once your existing floor is prepared, it is time to pour the epoxy material. For most, it is wise to hire a professional to do the job so that you can get a floor that is even and detailed with patterns or textures. The epoxy material is pour and smoothed out, and then it needs time to cure. This can be as soon as two hours with a quick-dry formula, or up to seventy-two hours with standard formulas. Installation and cure time will vary depending on what color, pattern or texture you may be adding to the process.

Epoxy Floor Maintenance
Once the floor is installed, it is important to understand what type of maintenance you will have to provide. Since epoxy is a strong, durable material you won’t have to have any serious maintenance routines to keep the floor clean and strong. Sweeping and mopping the flooring will be all it takes to keep it looking good. If the epoxy has a chip or crack, there are products you can use to prevent further damage.

Weight Limits
Epoxy flooring is made for tough atmospheres like a professional garage. There are no significant limits to what you can put on it. The weight of cars, tool chests and other automotive equipment should not impact your flooring as long as you’ve let it cure the recommended length of time before moving your equipment into the space.
