What is an Epoxy Flake System?

Many people may know about epoxy floors, as you may see them in garages, industrial buildings, and warehouses. But did you know that epoxy flake flooring systems are a perfect way to protect your garage, workshop, and basement floors? At EMC Concrete Coatings, Inc., we’re experts in the application of epoxy flake system floors in San Antonio and the surrounding areas. We understand that our clients want a durable and sustainable flooring surface customized to their homes and the needs of their families. That’s where epoxy flake flooring comes in – it is entirely customizable while offering a high level of resistance to wear and tear. It’s safe and easy to clean, so maybe it’s time to consider epoxy flake flooring for your home.

What Are Epoxy Flake Floors?

Epoxy flake floor systems contain color flakes in a wide variety of shades and combinations to create a floor that fits your style and enhances your decor. Whether you’re looking for a stain-resistant floor for your garage, or a floor that holds up to the high traffic of a basement recreation area, epoxy flake floors do it all.

Epoxy Flake Flooring is Safe

Like traditional epoxy floor coatings, flake flooring offers a seamless, finished look that immediately upgrades any room. However, the design of epoxy flake floors makes them highly slip-resistant for increased safety. The flakes provide a subtle texture to the flooring that helps prevent accidental slips. Perfect for a garage, you know you’re safe from falling even if the floor is wet from the rain or other spills.

For families with pets, epoxy flake flooring not only makes cleanup easy, but it reduces allergens. Carpet hides dander and other allergens pets (and humans) bring in from outside. With epoxy flake system flooring, a quick pass with a damp mop eliminates dust and allergens, making everyone breathe easier.

Epoxy Flake Floors Are Durable

When installing flooring in your home, you want something that lasts with a minimum of maintenance. Epoxy flake flooring fits the bill, as it not only looks nice but is extremely durable.

Stain and water resistance

Oil stains are a thing of the past with epoxy flake floors. Additionally, water doesn’t absorb into the floor, preventing the breakdown of the material or encouraging mold growth.

Ease of cleaning

No chemicals are needed, just a mop and broom, and your floor looks as good as new.

UV-resistant color flakes resist fading

Epoxy flakes don’t fade with time or under UV light, guaranteeing rich color for the life of the floor.

Resistance to chemicals and acids commonly found in garages

Many garages and workshops contain corrosive chemicals. If acids or other chemicals leak on your floor, cleanup is easy, and your floor remains blemish-free.

Scratch and scuff resistance, and designed to withstand up to 350 lbs/SF of weight without damage

Garage projects often involve heavy objects. If you happen to drop something heavy on your epoxy flake floor, you’ll be pleased to discover the absence of cracks, scratches, and scuffs.

When installed by a professional, there’s no cracking or peeling

Home improvement stores carry epoxy flake flooring kits, but there’s no guarantee that the average homeowner will install the floor correctly. EMC Concrete Coatings employs highly trained technicians for epoxy flake installations, and we offer a 24-month warranty to back our guarantee that you’ll love your epoxy flake floors.

When a long-lasting floor is high on your list, epoxy flake flooring installed by EMC Concrete Coatings is the best choice. We use a polyurea base and polyaspartic coating to ensure that your floors remain durable for years to come.

Epoxy Flake Floors Enhance Your Decor

Most people choose to install epoxy flake flooring for the reasons listed above, but aesthetics also play a part. The almost infinite amount of options for color combinations and textures (including metallics and neon) makes epoxy flake flooring a terrific choice for customizing any area of your home. Besides adding texture and dimension to your floors, epoxy flake floor coatings systems hide minor imperfections, all while making your decor feel modern and contemporary.

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.

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!
