Epoxy floor
« on: April 21, 2022, 01:53:35 PM »
Any of yíall ever do this to your garage or anything? Iím putting new carpet in my office and where the field guys come in and out, I thought about leaving that space open and doing epoxy or polishing the existing concrete slab. Not sure of cost for the epoxy or which one is best, but the area Iím planning on doing probably isnít much more than 250 square feet. Iíd throw the speckled flake shit on it too for looks and just put a transition piece at the edge of the carpet.

That coating works great when it's applied by people that know what they're doing. I assume you're just trying to knock off some dirt before they track it all over the carpet.

Realistically, I donít want those dudes on the carpet at all. Iím setting up a station for them to do all paperwork. Iím just wanting something thatís easy to clean and has a bit of traction to it, so when they walk in with muddy boots they donít fall and itís easy to clean.

consider using a polished cement finish

I may do that. Iím going to have to clean them anyway before, and I have some floor polishers that I was going to buff them and see what it looks like. Iím worried about the women wearing high beams having hurt feet from concrete though if I left it all. Iíll cover it with a on area rug if I go that route maybe?

Can you pour a slab outside and have them dust off before they even come in?

I did this a decade ago and it looked awesome.  Even put the sprinkles in.

Now, it needs to be completely stripped and redone.

Iíll take a decade of use. Probably better than Iíd get with LVT which was another option. Iíd rather just do polished concrete but Iím not sure how good I can get it looking myself, and also donít need the slip hazard for muddy boots. Iíll probably end up doing epoxy and flake.

Did you do your floor yourself and if so, was it pretty easy?

It's easy, just clean the floor of any oils and stuff, then it's like painting.   I will say this - go super heavy on the sprinkles.....looks better.  I also did the epoxy up the foundation concrete too which gave a super clean look (no sprinkles on wall).

Thereís no oil or anything. Itís a slab with some plaster and paint on it now because of the renovation. Iíll take pics and send to Chaos, and he can post them, since I have is number. Hopefully itíll be ďYĒ approved.

All for naught. None of the office folks wanted to keep the concrete, and now we have lvt set up for install.  :-\
