100% Solids Epoxy
These systems are often reserved for professional installers. A 100% solids epoxy generally requires adequate surface preparation in the form of an acid etching , grinding, or shot blasting . These systems are squeegeed and back-rolled often in two coats. they will create a thick layer of protection and are chemically inert to many household products. They will last for many years and are installed at at average cost of $1.50 - $3.00 ft
Epoxy, Polyurea and Polyaspartic Color Flake System
These are the industry standard when it comes to professional garage floor coating systems.
A Color Flake System is similar in its installation regardless of the specific product used. Surface preparation is of paramount importance for any long lasting system. A first color coat is applied, then a second coat is sometimes required. While the second coat is still wet, color flake chips are broadcast onto the surface until rejection (the floor is 100% covered). Once this layer dries, a top coat is then installed (sometimes a second) to seal off the surface and lock in the chips.These systems vary in price but can range from $3.50ft - to $5.50 ft
