These coatings provide an exciting and attractive range of possibilities for floors in garages, basements, bathrooms, kitchens, barns, lobbies and much more.

Correct installation of epoxy coatings is imperative. Depending on the manufacturer’s recommendation, we either use planetary grinders or shot blast to prepare the floor.

The floor is then cleaned several times using vacuums, microfiber pads and solvent. This is to ensure dust and other debris does not block the bond between the substrate and the coating.

We offer a very wide range of epoxy coatings, urethane and polyaspartic systems. The topcoats we use are UV stable, chemical, stain and impact resistant.

If you need assistance, we can help specify the perfect system for your location, based on the environment and conditions your surface is being exposed to.
