If you live in Olathe or Kansas City, you may have noticed some of the beautiful epoxy garage and basement floors in the area and are thinking about having one installed. If so, here is some information that could prove useful:

What Are the Advantages of Epoxy Flooring?

An epoxy floor coating can convert a dull concrete floor into one that has an upscale look. Epoxy floors have a smooth, durable surface. They are ideal for high-traffic areas and areas that support heavy loads. They have a sleek and shiny surface that reflects light and makes a room look brighter. Epoxy floors are easy to maintain. They are also resistant to heat and water, which makes them easy to clean with no special tools required. They come in a variety of colors and designs. Additionally, epoxy floors can be used to hide defects in concrete floors.

What Are the Disadvantages of Epoxy Flooring?

Although epoxy floors have many wonderful features, like all flooring systems they are not permanent. They will eventually show wear and will have to be repaired or replaced.

Is Epoxy Flooring Worth It?

Many residents in the Olathe and Kansas City areas will say that epoxy floors

are definitely worth the cost. Epoxy floors are absolutely beautiful as compared to plain garage floors and are very durable. They will withstand the impact of dropped tools and liquid spills. Anyone who likes to spend time in their garage tinkering with their car or pursuing a hobby can enjoy the pleasure of working on an epoxy floor. Just like driveway sealing and other home improvements, an epoxy floor coating will increase the value of your home. Additionally, epoxy floors are a much better value than simply painting a garage floor.

What Is the Installation Process for Epoxy Flooring?

The average garage floor will take about 1.5 days to install. We will spend about 80% of our time doing the prep work. After diamond grinding and making all the repairs we will typically install a 100% Solids Epoxy and broadcast the desired flake into that. We will return the next day to install the Polyaspartic TopCoat. After completion you will be able to walk on the floor within 12 hours and park on the floor within 48-72 hours. We have a FREE storage trailer available for your items with advanced notice.
