Epoxy Painting Specialist Suffolk
Epoxy binds to most surfaces well and serves as a high-performance floor coating. It is known for its longevity, affordability, protective benefits and smooth appearance. If you own a business of any size in Suffolk County, epoxy painting may be right for your needs for several reasons.
Epoxy coating is affordable. Professional application ranges between $3 and $12 per square foot depending on several factors. The cost also depends on how many coats are applied and the application method. In comparison with tiling, replacing concrete or installing another type of flooring material, epoxy costs less. Since it typically lasts for many years, it is a good investment. An epoxy coating over repaired areas on concrete or a base floor may help prevent worsening damage.
Epoxy coating is attractive. Many people just want a clear coat over a floor or wall for its shiny appearance. The shiny look of epoxy lasts a long time without the need for frequent waxing. If you prefer a tint for your floor, color can be added to the epoxy. Also, there is colored epoxy if you prefer a new or solid color.
Epoxy is resilient. This durable finish protects what’s underneath it from cracks, chips and damage. Epoxy can chip and crack over time but can usually be repaired easily if any damage is addressed promptly. It is resistant to heat. If you spill gasoline, oil, bleach or harsh chemicals on epoxy flooring, it is easy to clean. Also, epoxy is resistant to stains.
Process of Epoxy Coating
When professional epoxy painters are hired to coat your floor or walls, they start by preparing the surface. The preparation process involves deep cleaning. In some cases, the floor may need to be sanded, repaired or filled depending on its condition. Professionals make sure that the surface is clean, even, dry and ready to accept the epoxy. If cracks and chips are not filled in to minimize their appearance, the floor will not look good with clear epoxy.
After this, the professionals apply a primer to make it easier for the epoxy to bond properly. Once the surface is ready to accept the epoxy, professionals apply the first coat. When that coat dries, they look for any new cracks or problem areas. While the preparation process takes care of most of those, they simply ensure that the floor looks as good as it possibly can before they apply another coat and the final topcoat. The number of coats needed depends on several factors that professionals discuss individually with each customer.
Why Work with a Suffolk County Professional?
While there are many articles and video tutorials online for DIY epoxy painting, it is better to hire a professional. Not every tutorial or video takes each potential factor into account, and some factors that seem small may have a big effect on the longevity of the coating or the initial outcome. Incorrect applications can be costly once the repair expenses are added to the cost of the original application.
These are some other reasons to hire professional epoxy painters:
- Professionals work around your staff to minimize productivity interruptions.
- Professionals properly ventilate the application area to minimize fumes.
- Professionals will apply epoxy coatings quickly and effectively.
- Professionals offer assurance on the quality of their work.
