THOMASVILLE GARAGE EPOXY
METALLIC EPOXY GARAGE FLOOR
A metallic epoxy garage floor is in our opinion, the most unique floor coating that is available on the market. It is a spectacle that offers an appearance that cannot be rivaled by any other type of traditional floorings as it mimics lava flow, marble or even waves. If you’re worried about sacrificing performance for beauty, don’t worry, we have you covered because we only use the highest grade materials on the market so your flooring will perform like a finely tuned performance vehicle
SPECIALIZED EPOXY COATINGS
We understand that our neighbors in Thomasville may not use their garages for only vehicles but rather more sensitive materials. We offer garage epoxy that is made especially for your scenario such as a static guard epoxy that protects electronics from electrostatic surges. We even offer epoxies that can protect your flooring in an extremely moist environment called vapor lock, so you won’t have to worry about your flooring becoming slippery.
EPOXY FLAKE GARAGE FLOOR
The epoxy flake garage floor is among one of the most popular and traditional concrete coatings that are on the market today. This doesn’t diminish its value at all as it is used so much for good reason. Flake epoxy offers superior resistance to damage and even harsh chemicals all while giving off an attractive appearance. It gets its look from the use of single colored or multi-colored flakes, which is the more affordable path compared to metallic pigments found in metallic epoxy flooring.

HOW WE INSTALL GARAGE EPOXY
The process that is installing garage epoxy is a tedious but completely necessary process that can easily be done incorrectly. This is why we ask that you leave this process up to our epoxy garage floor installers who have decades of combined experience in this field. We begin by removing any previous coating that may be installed on your concrete, if none are present we skip straight into the process of filling cracks using a material that fills and restricts the growth of your cracks. While our garage epoxy can limit the size of cracks, there are two types of concrete, concrete that is cracked and concrete that is going to crack. Once this material has dried, we either use a diamond wheel grinder to open the pores of the concrete or we shot blast the concrete to profile it, both methods ensure a tight bond with our resins. We then apply an epoxy primer, which furthers the bond of the resin to the concrete slab. Depending on which type of epoxy you decide to go with, the process may be different.

WHAT IS GARAGE EPOXY?
A garage epoxy is a material that resembles paint but isn’t paint at all. While some paints advertise that they use epoxy mixed in their paint, this is a very low-quality material that you should try to stay away from. The myth that epoxy floors don’t last very long actually comes from these materials and their false advertising. We use the highest grade materials that are available on the market, even for our residential clients. Epoxy consists of two parts, a part A and part B. Part A is the resin which makes up two-thirds of the mixture and part B that is the hardener that makes up the rest of the mixture. When the epoxy is mixed, we may add in the metallic pigments, coloring or even additives that make more traction for your flooring, even when wet! There are many ways to apply to epoxy such as a trowel, a roller like paint or for larger areas we may use a squeegee to evenly distribute the material on the concrete slab so you get even protection all the way around.
MAINTAINING YOUR GARAGE EPOXY
While maintaining your epoxy garage floor coating may be simple, it plays a major role in how long the coating will last in your garage. We recommend that you don’t let chemicals sit on the surface for too long as they may remove some of the glazed effects of your epoxy. For daily maintenance on your flooring, you won’t need many times or materials. All you really need is a dust mop or a soft bristle broom to remove all loose debris from the floor followed by a standard mop with any additive you wish to add. For a more soiled floor, you will need to remove all loose debris and proceed to use a hose to remove all moisture from the surface. If any type of stains or residue remains after being rinsed off, we recommend the use of CLR with a stiff brush used in a circular motion to lift the stain. And just like that, your floor will shine like new as there is no type of waxes or polishes used on garage epoxy.
