An Introduction to Epoxy Floor Coating

If you’re thinking about applying epoxy floor coatings in your residence or business, then read on. There are many different types of epoxy coatings on the market today. This article will take a look at the following topics: applying a garage epoxy floor coating, finding an epoxy kit that is right for you and some of the different types of epoxy available today. After reading this article, you should be able to decide if epoxy is right for you.

Some of the Benefits of a Garage Epoxy Floor Coating
One of the best features of epoxy floor coating is that it can be spread over virtually any existing flooring that you have in place. This has the effect of evening out any irregularities of your current flooring. If you happen to have old style asbestos floor tiles in place, you can just go over the top of them, and no longer need to remove them.

Another benefit of some epoxy coatings is that it is very common to find them in a fast drying variety. This often means that after application, you’ll be able to walk on the surface in 24 hours, and drive on it in 48. If time is an important consideration, be sure to check on the curing times of the epoxy you choose.

Finding an Epoxy Kit
It’s very common to find offering for a complete kit to do an epoxy floor coating installation. These kits will typically come with all the tools you’ll need for application, such as rollers and brushes, buckets and gloves, and squeegees and measuring sticks. Of course the epoxy to be applied is part of the kit as well.

The kit prices will vary depending on the amount of epoxy that is included. This amount is usually based on the square footage that you want to cover. You’ll want to check to see if things like clear coating and color chips are included in the final price or if they are extra.

Different Types of Epoxy
If you’re concerned about the environment, it is currently possible to get an epoxy that is non-toxic and environmentally friendly. These products perform well over time and give you the same level of protection as traditional epoxies. They have several benefits: they are non-toxic, have little to no odor and can come with 10 year guarantees. This is a very viable way to go and is also cost effective with costs as low as $1.20 per square foot.

Now you know a little more about the benefits of epoxy floor coating and what to look for in an installation kit. You know some of the things that it can do, including protecting your flooring while providing an environmentally sound choice for your flooring needs. You owe it to yourself to look into the value of adding epoxy to your flooring.
