What Is Metallic Epoxy?
Metallic epoxy is a special kind of epoxy concrete coating that’s applied over an existing concrete slab. This unique coating is multi-layered and includes metallic additives to produce decorative effects. As the epoxy cures, the metallic powder still moves, making a pearlescent design.
Why Choose an Epoxy Floor?
As a subset of epoxy flooring, metallic epoxy still produces the same results as a normal epoxy floor. This means it offers the same great benefits that come with epoxy flooring, such as:
Metallic epoxy and epoxy flooring itself give any property an instant upgrade in appearance. A worn down, peeling concrete floor can take the life and charm out of any room. With a new concrete coating, you’ll have a surface that’s bright and stunning.
Whether you have a home or business, the chances are high that your floor encounters a lot of everyday wear and tear. This includes vehicles driving over it, constant foot traffic, equipment or furniture shuffling, and objects falling. These events can cause our flooring surface to crack and wither down. But metallic epoxy surrounds your floor with an extra-strong, protective layer to withstand whatever comes its way.
Great Return on Investment
When you think about the ROI of your metallic epoxy coating, two things should come to mind: the use and property value. With a new and improved floor, you’ll get more use and enjoyment out of your property. But better yet, a high-quality metallic epoxy floor also improves your property value, which gives you a better return on your property investment. So when it’s time to re-sell your home down the road, you can get more money in your wallet because of your concrete coating investment now.

Too often, people try to cut corners with their epoxy floor, whether they hire a cheap contractor or attempt a coating-DIY kit.

Customizable Design Options for Metallic Epoxy Floors
The best part about your metallic epoxy floor is it’s 100% unique to you. Epoxy Floors by Welch offers customizable metallic epoxy coatings to perfectly accent your Kansas City property.
We personally consult with you from the start to get an understanding of what type of design you’re looking for. And with several color, material, and finishing options, you can have a completely unique floor.

Metallic Epoxy Flooring Installation Process
The installation process is the difference between subpar coatings and those that last for decades. This is why we’ve spent years training our team to perfect the process and acquire the best materials for your floor.
Here’s how we install a metallic epoxy floor that looks stunning and lasts for years:
- Step 1: First, we consult with you on your floor. Every successful customer relationship relies on effective communication from the get-go, and that’s what we strive for. We assess your floor and your wants to determine the ideal solution.
- Step 2: We then prepare your floor by thoroughly cleaning it and removing any blemishes, like cracks or divots.
- Step 3: To get the epoxy to properly adhere to your surface, we grind down and remove the top layer or existing coating.
- Step 4: Next we apply the primer layer, which is a color-tinted epoxy to be the background color for the metallic coat.
- Step 5: After that dries, we then apply another coat of epoxy to build the surface’s strength.
- Step 6: While this coat is wet, we swirl in additional colors to help create the marble-looking design.
- Step 7: At this point, we can create additional effects, depending on your design preference.
- Step 8: Finally, we add a top layer to act as the shiny, durable coat to keep the surface intact, vibrant, and safe.

UPGRADE TO METALLIC EPOXY FLOORING
Just like all of our floors, the key to a beautiful and long-lasting metallic epoxy floor is proper preparation. If you or your concrete contractor skip this crucial step, your metallic epoxy floor will start to peel or chip in just a few months. Epoxy Floors by Welch takes the time to ensure your floor will look great for decades.
WORLD CLASS PRODUCT
We work with only the best, high-quality flooring products for a surface that shines.

PROTECTIVE TOP COAT
We add a urethane coat to the top of your floor for long-lasting protection, resistance to chemicals, and anti-slip safety.
PREPRATIONS DONE RIGHT
To thoroughly prepare your surface for a concrete floor that lasts, there are a few steps we take. First, we use a shot blaster and diamond grinder to strip the floor. Next, we knock out any loose concrete and fill current cracks or divots with a specialized product. Then, we thoroughly clean the floor to ensure the epoxy will effectively adhere.
A lot of concrete companies skip these steps by using an acid etch to clean the floor. Unfortunately, acid etch doesn’t thoroughly profile your floor and results in bonding issues later. Don’t settle for a company that’s too worried to save time by ruining the entire process.
Find the right care and attention your project needs with Epoxy Floors by Welch. We handle preparation the right way on the first try so you won’t have to worry later.
Once your floor is prepared correctly, we add the base of the floor coat followed by high-quality metallic epoxy. Lastly, we add that protective top coat to complete the entire floor in a durable and slip-resistant shield. These layers all work to help with adhesion and durability. Our floors are proven to last longer and withstand elements and foot traffic better.
