Tips for an Epoxy Floor Coating Installation in Cold Weather

Posted by Ben Bennett

Dec 22, 2015 8:00:00 AM

Epoxy floor coating is one of the most high-quality, durable custom garage flooring options available to homeowners. However, installing this type of floor coating in cold weather can be a challenge. Below are some tips to help you choose the right epoxy floor coating and install it successfully when the weather is cold.

 

  1. Understand how temperature affects epoxy.

When working with an epoxy coating, the most important temperature to check is the temperature of the garage floor, not the air. This is because the epoxy will take on the temperature of the slab as soon as it comes into contact with it. If the slab is too cold, you may have trouble.

As you plan to install your floor, make sure that you are paying attention to the right temperatures. The floor will typically be a few degrees colder than the air, but you can check the exact temperature with an infrared thermometer.

Epoxy Floor Coatings: What to Expect During & After Installation

Posted by Ben Bennett

Dec 12, 2014 8:00:00 AM

In recent years, epoxy floor coatings for garage floors have become popular. Combining form and function, they both protect the garage floor from damage and make it appear more attractive than it otherwise would. If you're considering putting in an epoxy floor coating, learn what to expect in terms of installation and maintenance, as well as the benefits of doing this type of floor coating.

Benefits of an epoxy floor coating

With an attractive look and feel, epoxy coatings are the perfect choice for commercial or residential garages. As these floors are customizable by color, you can select from a wide palette of solid colors or blend your own color.

Since the epoxy itself goes over the existing floor as a coating, and then cures, the end result is much firmer than a typical coat of paint. This ensures the epoxy floor coating will really stand up to wear and tear. Plus, you can easily wipe up most stains and spills without worry of penetration. If your cement garage floor is covered with oil spills, you'll enjoy this.
