Everyone wants their epoxy flooring to look its best. After all, it’s going to last for years, so it’s essential that the product is high-quality.
As epoxy flooring installation professionals, it’s in our best interest for the customer to get the most beautiful flooring possible. For us, every job represents us and the kind of work we do. Today, we’re going to talk about how to get the best possible epoxy flooring for your home or business.
Know what you want
One of the best ways to get the epoxy flooring you want is to know what you’re getting. By looking at pictures and samples, it will give you an understanding of the product color and style. If you can see it in person, that’s even better. Once you choose your epoxy, understand that it will look unique in your situation, since factors such as lighting will affect the color.
Talk with your flooring company and go over the area you want them to epoxy and other factors. Being on the same page is an essential part of the epoxy floor process, so it’s vital not to leave the consultation up to your spouse or business partner.
Moderate weather is ideal
If you want the floor work to be performed under ideal conditions, have the floor epoxy company do the job when the weather is between 72 and 77 degrees, which is the perfect temperature range. The reason is that epoxy flooring doesn’t ‘dry,’ it cures. Ideal conditions make for the best possible outcome, and when you spend your money on flooring which is going to last for years, it seems reasonable to want it to look its best.
Hire the pros
Pros have the tools, the experience, and the knowledge to apply to epoxy flooring installation. Some DIY enthusiasts will tell you how easy it is to do your own epoxy flooring, but the reality falls short of idealism in this case.
Let the flooring area undisturbed
During the preparation part of epoxy flooring, the area has to be completely clean and free from all sources of contaminants. Also, each floor is unique, and, we consider it a form of artwork.
When the flooring crew is in the process of preparing and pouring the floor, and during the curing process, every visitor brings the potential for dirt particles. These aren't ideal for the epoxy flooring process. Once it’s finished, the homeowner or business can enjoy it for years; but before that, visitors during the installation process can make for less than optimal conditions.
If you're considering an epoxy flooring in your garage or any other area of your home or business, these tips will help the job go smoother and the final result will be everything you wanted.
