What type of Epoxy Floors are there?
We offer different types of epoxy floors that have a solid color, light or heavy color, chipped floors and some with a complete granite flooring. Every product that we present and install comes with a topcoat finish that makes everything look more gorgeous and have a longer lifespan.
Is there any preparation before installing a floor?
Yes, before starting anything, we prepare the concrete to be used for the installation process. While we are doing the magic mix, we thoroughly inspect every section of the floor for any oil stain that needs to be removed using degreasing products, while also repairing minor cracks that we may find on the surface. After everything is done, we start with the installation of the new epoxy floor.
How long does the installation process take?
It all depends on the size of the space we are going to work on, and also varies by the choice of the floor material. It can demand from two days up to three days depending on the floor material on an average garage size floor. We also apply garage floor coatings in Queen Creek to make it last a lot longer.
After the installation, do we have to wait before we start to use the area?
Yes, there is a waiting period before the area is usable again. Epoxy floors need 24 hours but we strongly suggest to wait 48 hours before moving heavy furniture on it. If you need assistance with more information about it, give us a call. Barefoot Surfaces is always ready and happy to help you with anything.
So I can park my car after waiting 48 hours?
Cars are extremely heavy, so we recommend to keep all vehicles away from the garage floor coating for a minimum of five days, allowing time for it to completely dry. If you bring any vehicle before this time, it will cause serious damage to the epoxy floor, making you have to contact us again.
What can I do to avoid having a slippery floor?
Well, the finished surface is going to be a lot smoother than concrete, so the epoxy floors in Queen Creek will tend to be more slippery when wet than usual. In this case, we recommend you to clean your epoxy floors with an ammonia solution with water instead of a soap based cleaner to lessen the slippery situation. You can contact your local epoxy contractor for more information.
