Why You should Hire a Professional:
The concrete that will receive the epoxy coating needs to be ground first. This requires a concrete grinder, which is a large and expensive piece of equipment that requires experience to use. After this, it's sometimes a good idea to degrease the concrete in order to ensure that the epoxy securely sticks to the concrete. A normal degreasing product is adequate for this step, but the concrete needs to be cleaned after the degreasing. Next in the process, you have to vacuum and clean all the dust and debris from the grinding phase. You can do this with a normal vacuum, but it will take lots of time. A professional vacuum will also make for a better-looking final product. After the two-part primer is applied, the next step is to inspect the floor to make sure that there are no cracks, holes, or irregularities that will affect the final look. When these are found, epoxy grout must be applied to even the areas out. It’s better to have a professional for this part because they have the eye to spot the irregularities and the skills to even them out. Floor joints must also be filled up with a special compound. Once it’s time to apply the first coat, the polyamine hardener and epoxy resin must be thoroughly mixed with an industrial mixer – which professionals have and know how to operate. Failing to mix the materials properly will have a detrimental effect on the finish. The mixture must be evenly applied with quality rollers and squeegees. Also, different epoxy finishes may differ in behavior depending on the temperature and humidity of the environment; professionals know how to compensate and adapt to this when it happens. Once it dries in 24 hours, it will most likely need to be ground down again in order to make sure the final coat is uniform and looks good. A smaller grinder will be used for this, but it still requires experience to use. The surface must also be cleaned. Also, some epoxy grout may be necessary after the first coat. As you can probably tell, this home improvement project can be tricky. We recommend hiring a professional flooring contractor or seeking help and advice from one.
