Floor Prepping & Process
At Epic Epoxy Floors the preparation of the garage floor is a critical step to ensure maximum adhesion of the epoxy. First, we grind your floor utilizing a walk behind diamond bladed concrete grinder that is attached to an industrial vacuum, which keeps dust and debris to a minimum. This process removes any unwanted stains or previously applied coatings resulting in a concrete floor that is clean and porous. This step ensures that the epoxy can properly adhere to the floor for a strong long-lasting mechanical bond. Once the grinding is complete we vacuum any remaining dust and then fill all hairline cracks and divots using an industrial-grade epoxy patch. If any major cracks or spalling exits in the concrete the options to repair them can be discussed during the inspection part of the estimate. This part of the process can take up to several hours and is a critical part of the process.
We use industrial quality epoxy that is low VOC and LEED compliant and manufactured in the United States from several leading polymer suppliers. This is industrial grade best-in-class product that does not come in cans from the local paint or home improvement stores. We mix the epoxy on site using a formula based on your garage size that has proven to provide maximum durability and build. The product is then poured onto the concrete floor and applied evenly using a squeegee, which forces the epoxy into the open pores of the concrete. The product is further distributed using a rolling and back rolling method for maximum adhesion and has self-leveling properties to ensure a uniform finish is achieved.
The designer metallic epoxy colors are chosen by you from our selection of designer color finishes . Our signature epoxy colors and metallics will be carefully mixed with a specific ratio to ensure the product consistency and even saturation. We have dozens of sample colors and combos available to complement the color palette of the interior or exterior of your home or we can custom blend you a finish to your liking.
The final step in the process is designed to seal the metallic epoxy into place and provide an extremely durable protective clear coat that has a “smooth as glass” texture and finish. Anti slip finishes are also available.
We achieve this finish by applying the protective clear coat using a proven mixing formula (based on square footage) along with an installation technique that has provided consistent results over the years. We use both UVR Epoxy and UVS Polyaspartic clear coats depending on your specific chemical resistant and UV protection needs.
