How To Choose The Best Epoxy Floor Coating

Epoxy coatings are a great way to protect your flooring from damage and give it a new lease of life. There are many different types of epoxy coatings available on the market, so it can be difficult to know which one is right for you.

In this blog post, we will discuss the different types of epoxy coatings available and how to choose the right one for your needs. We will also look at the benefits of using an epoxy coating and how to apply it. If you’re thinking about using an epoxy coating, then this blog post is for you!

What Is Epoxy And What Are Its Main Uses?

Epoxy is a type of resin that is used in a variety of applications, including as a coating for floors. Epoxy coatings are made up of two parts – a resin and a hardener. When these two parts are mixed together, they create a tough and durable finish that can be used on many different surfaces. Epoxy coatings are commonly used in industrial and commercial settings because of their durability and resistance to wear and tear. They can also be used in residential settings, such as in garages or on driveways.

The Different Types Of Epoxy Coatings

There are two main types of epoxy coatings – solvent-based and water-based. Solvent-based epoxy coatings are made with a petroleum-based solvent, which gives them a strong smell. They are also more flammable than water-based epoxy coatings. However, solvent-based epoxy coatings are more durable and have a longer lifespan. Water-based epoxy coatings are made with water and they have very little odor. They are also less flammable than solvent-based epoxy coatings. However, they are not as durable and they will not last as long.

How To Choose The Right Type Of Epoxy Coating For Your Needs

When choosing an epoxy coating, you need to consider your needs and the environment in which the coating will be used. For example, if you are looking for a durable coating that will last for many years, then a solvent-based epoxy coating would be a good choice. However, if you are looking for a less toxic option with little odor, then a water-based epoxy coating would be a better choice.

The Benefits Of Using An Epoxy Coating

There are many benefits to using an epoxy coating, including the following:

– Increased durability

– Resistance to wear and tear

– Protection from damage

– Improved appearance

– Easy to clean

– Slip resistant

Applying an epoxy coating to your flooring can increase its durability and protect it from damage. It can also improve the appearance of your flooring and make it easier to clean. Epoxy coatings are also slip-resistant, which makes them a good choice for areas where there is a risk of slipping’s, such as in kitchens or bathrooms.

What are the benefits of coating my garage or patio floor?

There are a multitude of benefits to coating your concrete surface. Our prep phase will eliminate high spots or surface deficiencies through diamond grinding or shotblasting. In addition, our trained technicians will fill in any cracks, holes, or spalls on your concrete surface prior to any coating being placed. This ensures a smooth and uniform appearance throughout your slab. Concrete is very porous and can make stain removal difficult. With a high-performance coating installed, you will be able to remove otherwise tough stains with a spray of your water hose. And lastly, our floors look amazing! The garage is often overlooked when it comes to renovation/upgrades, but a professionally installed resinous coating will add $$$ to the value of your home.

How long does a typical installation take?
In most cases, our highly trained technicians can wrap up your residential project in as little as 2 days. We do offer a state of the art 1 day system, where you can walk on your new floor the next day, but we do not recommend these rapid cure systems during the summer months. Commercial projects and larger residential projects (1K sq. feet or more) can certainly take more time to complete. As always, our sales team will visit your site to take accurate measurements and offer a realistic timeframe.
Do you offer free on-site quotes?
Yes, we do. EMC Concrete Coatings always prefers to visit you at your project site to take
measurements and go over your coatings/color options. Our quotes are valid for 90 days and there is never any pressure. We are not here to make you feel uncomfortable or pressured. Our process is smooth and easy for everyone involved.
Can you give me a “ball-park” price over the phone?
Yes. However, this is not the way we prefer to quote jobs. Each project is unique and a
“standard 2 car garage” is going to be different for every homebuilder in town. Square footage’s, linear walls, garage aprons, and condition of the slab all play a very important role in providing you with an accurate quote. This simply cannot be done in a matter of seconds via a phone call or messenger.
How much does it cost to install a decorative coating on my garage floor?
A typical 2 car garage coatings installation in the greater San Antonio area will cost between $2’400 and $3’000. Our pricing is based on square footages and other aspects of the project, including the linear footage of any stem walls, aprons, or repair work.

Oversized or multi-car garages, patios, or other areas will result in higher priced estimates.

Do you use epoxy or polyurea for garage coatings?
We use all the above. Resinous coatings do not come in a one size fits all application. The
details and specs of each project will help our trained technicians determine what coating is best for your project. Typically, we use polyurea coatings for our garages and patio installations. However, shop floors and other commercia/residential spaces will call for epoxies, urethanes, or water-based materials. Rest assured, no matter which products we use, they are from reputable coatings manufacturers and TDS sheets are always available to our customers upon
Is this service affordable?
We are not the lowest priced team in town. We are also, certainly not the most expensive outfit on the block. Our pricing is determined by the costs of materials, inflation, demand, labor, and level of service. When choosing EMC Concrete Coatings, you have done yourself a great favor by hiring the best in the business. EMC does run specials throughout the calendar year for discounted floors and we always honor first responders, military, and front-line workers discounts.

Our team is always mindful of our customer’s budget. We are a locally owned and operated
small business, and we know the value of our hard-earned dollars and how much they mean to each one of us. We strive to provide our customers with the best possible pricing throughout the year. EMC honors our warranties, we show up on time, every time, and will go above and beyond to ensure you are 100% satisfied at the end of each project. If we miss the mark, we will rectify it. Simple as that.

Does my new floor come with a warranty?
Yes! We offer an excellent written warranty with all our floor coatings installations. Depending on which option you choose (stain, seal, epoxy/flake, solid color, or polish) the length of time will vary from 5 years to a limited lifetime homeowners’ warranty. We HONOR our warranties.
Who am I hiring if I choose EMC Concrete Coatings?
The best crew in town. From our brand-new trucks, wrapped-trailers, uniformed employees, and state of the art equipment – we are the best. Our technicians are certified and experienced installers. EMC is bonded, commercially insured, and experienced. Multiple professional references are available for commercial projects at any given time and our online reviews speak for themselves when it comes to our residential portfolio. You have made the right choice by calling the team at EMC Concrete Coatings. Most importantly, the owner of the company, Eric Calderon is personally involved in every project that comes through our door. Generally, Eric and his sales team will be the person you meet with at your project walk thru. You will then see Eric and his crew upon the day of installation. We never sub out our projects, our employees are in-house guys and Eric is there each step of the way to ensure maximum customer satisfaction!
