Scope of work: Epoxy Floor Refinishing
Location: Basking Ridge, NJ 07920
Epoxy floor refinishing is a great way to fortify the strength of your concrete floor. However, an epoxy refinish can only be applied to a floor that has never before been painted. Luckily, this Basking Ridge home had a bare garage floor that was in need of some protection, and our team at Monk’s was there to deliver a great epoxy floor refinish!
Before the epoxy floor refinish this Basking Ridge garage floor was severely discolored and stained.
After the epoxy floor refinish the floor would not only gain extra protection, but it would also look great!
The first step to this job was to mop the floor down with muriatic acid. This acid opens up the pores of the concrete, which prepares the floor for the next step of the process. With the pores open the epoxy is really able to take a grab of the concrete and soak in when it is applied in the next step.
Our team at Monk’s is incredibly careful while applying this acid.
The muriatic acid will sit and soak into the floor for about fifteen minutes before it is thoroughly hosed off with a pressure washer.
After the substance has been completely mixed it is ready to be applied to the prepped concrete floor. Our team at Monk’s uses a small brush to go along the edges, ensuring that every space is covered.
Larger rolling brushes are used to cover the rest of the floor.
After the first coat of epoxy finish it is left to completely dry before the second coat is applied. An epoxy floor refinish protects the floor by offering a strong finish, unmatched by regular paint. If you paint a garage floor with regular paint, the heat of the tires will eventually wear through and ruin the paint job. However, an epoxy floor refinish fortifies the floors with a heat resistant paint job.
A second coat of epoxy finish is applied for added protection.
After only three days the epoxy floor refinish is complete!
After the second coat there is the option to add a third clear coat for added protection (not pictured here).
