About Epoxy Flooring:
How it Works
Epoxy is applied in a two or three day process, depending on the type and color used. No matter which type of flooring is chosen, all of them have some things in common. First, the entire are needs to be cleared of objects on the floor– they can’t be moved from area to area, but removed completely to allow flooring to dry. After a power-cleaning and power-drying process, the floor is prepped and ready to have the epoxy resin applied.
Solid color and light color epoxy flooring is a two-day process, since the resin is first applied and then color is added, after which some time is needed for the epoxy to completely harden. Other processes, such as checkerboard epoxy coating, can take considerably more time as the resin is layered, and care must be taken to avoid errors. Many stone and metallic finishes can take up to three days because of the complexity of adding chips of a specific depth evenly to the resin.
Once the process is complete, you’ll have a stunning floor that will be easy to maintain for years, with only occasional maintenance.
