Epoxy Coating for a Fort Collins City Building

Epoxy Coating Project Complete

We completed an epoxy coating project in the Fort Collins Power and Light office building this past month. The client chose to install the quarter inch Copper Mountain flake epoxy system, so that it would be easy to clean, durable to high traffic, and look good. The job was a big success! We transformed 15,000 square feet of rough and unlevel concrete that was previously carpeted into a beautiful, seamless, easy-to-clean floor. The client had decided on this application after having a previous section done and having seen how well it performed with workers walking through the area with muddy boots.

 

The Process:

Prepwork is arguably the most important part of our trade, and with this floor, we needed to focus on repairing the surface so that it would be nice and flat for the coating to adhere. We moved old pieces of concrete that had broken due to the concrete settling and cracking over time, as well as we filled a lot of cracks and grinded the surface smooth. The floor also required moisture remediation after testing. The moisture remediation consisted of a special primer needing to be installed on the floor and extensive patching to ensure adhesion of the epoxy chip coating. The prepwork laid the foundation for a nice industrial floor coating.

 

Why Epoxy?

The client chose this system to be installed in the high traffic areas, like hallways and large rooms, where people would gather and walk through often. They decided to carpet the offices, which can often be a good decision for a cozier feel for people’s workspaces. Concrete floors can be a nice addition to a mixture of flooring types, depending on what they will be used for. In this case, the city will be happy with the mixture of epoxy coating and carpet for their usage because the epoxy is industrial-strength and looks good, whereas the carpet does not get as much traffic and provides a nice environment in the office setting.

 

Some things to consider when choosing an epoxy floor application…

Whenever our clients choose an epoxy for paint, we want to be clear that there could be odors associated with the resins we use, and really, you’re going to get this with any contractor. However, there are ways to reduce the odor, which is what we did in this case. Products were selected to reduce odors because part of the building was occupied. Another thing we want our clients to be aware of is the drying times, which can be longer or shorter depending on the temperature of the concrete and surrounding environment. Depending on the material used, our clients may be able to walk on it the next day, or it could take an additional day if it did not dry quick enough. Also, be careful and consult with us before you drive any machinery on the surface when we’re finished.

 

We’d love to work with you on your next concrete coating project!

Garage Floor System

Fire Red Epoxy Garage Floor System in Denver Neighborhood

Are you looking for a new look for your garage?! We have the solution for you! Just last week we finished a garage floor system in a nice Denver neighborhood. The home owners are working to renovate their garage, where they play mini hockey games with their children, store their outdoor gear, and park their cars. They chose our garage floor system in 1/8″ Firebrick epoxy chip, which goes particularly well with their stucco and brick house. Once we were done, they told us they loved the new look. All they need to do next is paint the walls!

Traditionally garage floors get a lot of wear and tear, and over time you may find that your concrete floor that was once beautiful and new, deteriorates. If your concrete garage floor is at the point of spalling, or chipping at the surface, showing aggregate beneath, it is time to call us!

We’ll first make sure your garage floor is a good candidate for our garage floor system by seeing how badly it has deteriorated. Most of the time we’ve found that garage floors, even though they look pretty bad, can be good candidates for our epoxy garage floor system.

Then we’ll talk with you about your choices! We use the Graniflex technology, which is durable and highly resistant to cracks. It also withstands harsh weather and vehicular and foot traffic really well. You get to choose what final look you want! We have 1/8″ chips, like in this garage, or 1/4″ chips in several colors.
