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.
