Epoxy Flooring Application and Costs
What’s most important with the Epoxy Flooring application?
Good preparation of the floor is critical for applying epoxy flooring properly to your Phoenix garage. Usually this will require some form of floor grinding, blastic or acid etching to prepare the floor for the epoxy.
This is an extremely important step that the professionals at ACN painting will be sure to execute properly on your Phoenix garage. It’s also very important to patch and repair any cracks or other damage to the concrete before epoxy flooring is applied.
Best Materials Used for the Epoxy Flooring application
Quality epoxy flooring like the ones ACN Painting will use on your garage in Phoenix requires multiple coats to ensure long lasting durability and resistance. Often times, this requires a primer that is applied first.
It binds the to the concrete allowing the following epoxy flooring layers to adhere better. Some primers also add one more barrier to protect from moisture that can sometimes absorb through the concrete from the soil below.
The next coat that will be applied to your garage in Phoenix is a base coat. This is also the time that any acrylic paint chips will be added for color and texture if you so choose. Finally, there is a top coat that gives a clear, glossy finish that epoxy flooring is known for.
The typical time to complete an epoxy flooring job in Phoenix will take about 3-5 days because there is time needed for the epoxy to cure between each coat. There are newer epoxy systems that are faster curing for single day installation that may cost a bit more for the convenience.
Costs for Epoxy Flooring Installation
Professional Epoxy Flooring installation ranges from $3-6 per square foot generally. Typically this will include a minimum of 3 coats. A typical 2 car garage in Phoenix is about 400 square feet.
