One of the best ways to prep your surface is diamond grinding. You can rent concrete grinders at most rental stores. The next best way is using an etching chemical to etch the surface of the concrete. You can also sand the surface if the before mentioned methods can’t be done. If you can only prep minimally or can’t prep at all we have a Prep Replacement Primer to help achieve a strong bond. We always recommend prepping the concrete surface first.

Priming the floor is simple and fast. Mix your pre-measured primer then dip and roll the pigmented primer across the surface until the floor is completely pigmented. Wait for 1 hr (or until tacky and not coming off to the touch) and start applying the Base Coat.

Applying the Base Coat and Highlights is the funniest part. Mix your pre-measured Base Coat, pour it out across the floor and begin to spread out the epoxy with your rubber squeegee getting it as even as you can. Our Epoxy self-levels so don’t worry about getting it perfectly even. Quickly roll over the surface with your paint roller to help even out the epoxy. Now mix your pre-measured highlight color and apply it to the base color, then blend it to your desired look.

We offer 2 different gloss sheens in our Urethane Top Coat. The Top Coat comes with the option to have a High Gloss or a Matte Finish. It needs to be rolled out super thin and leaves a minor texture which gives it extra durability. Apply it within 24 hrs of installing your floor kit or you will need to sand the surface before applying it.

What are some important things to keep in mind when installing epoxy floors?

As discussed in Part 1 of this series, epoxy floors are becoming increasingly popular for homeowners due to their durability, affordability, ease of maintenance and attractive appearance. In this second part of our series, we will take you through the steps involved in installing epoxy floors in a 2000 sq ft home.

Step 1: Start by Prepping the Surface

Before you begin the installation process, it is crucial to ensure that the floor is free from any dirt, grease, or other contaminants that could affect the adhesion of the epoxy coating. Clean the floor thoroughly, and if necessary, use a degreaser to remove stubborn stains.

Step 2: Repair Any Damaged Areas

Inspect the floor and identify any cracks, holes, or other damaged areas that need to be repaired before the epoxy coating is applied. Repair these areas using concrete patching compound and allow ample time for the compound to dry before proceeding to the next step.

Step 3: Apply the Base Coat

The base coat is the foundation of the epoxy coating, and it is essential to apply it evenly and with care. Begin by mixing the two components of the epoxy resin system as specified by the manufacturer’s instructions. Once mixed, pour the epoxy onto the floor in small sections, spreading it out using a squeegee or roller. Be sure to work quickly, but carefully, to ensure that the epoxy is spread evenly across the surface.

Step 4: Add the Color Flakes

Once the base coat is applied, it is time to add the color flakes. Choose a color scheme that suits your taste and carefully sprinkle the color flakes onto the base coat. The amount of flakes used will depend on personal preference, but it is usually recommended to use about 1 lb of flakes per 100 sq ft of floor area. Once applied, allow the flakes to settle into the base coat for several hours before proceeding to the next step.

Step 5: Apply the Topcoat

The final step in the process is to apply the topcoat. Mix the two components of the epoxy topcoat as per the manufacturer’s instructions and pour onto the floor. Similar to the base coat, use a squeegee or roller to spread the topcoat evenly across the surface.

Important Things to Keep in Mind

-Ensure the epoxy coating is applied in a properly-ventilated area

-Wear protective gear such as protective gloves, goggles, and respirators

-Follow the instructions on the epoxy coating product labels strictly.

-Be patient while applying the coatings to achieve the best results.

To conclude, installing epoxy floors in your 2000 sqft house is a DIY project that may be quite challenging but is achievable. Follow the steps above to do it right and achieve a durable and attractive floor surface.
