We recently completed an epoxy floor in Easton, Pa that had a unique situation. We offer the Lehigh Valley epoxy floor services for residential and commercial clients.
When you remove vct tiles and see black glue the first thing that comes to mind is asbestos.
We want to make certain everyone is protected which means we cannot grind or sand the floor.
Typically this is where people would either grind anyway putting the safety of their workers, the staff and the client at a huge risk.
Without knowing for sure whether it is asbestos or not we assume it is and take precautions by encapsulating the surface with a special primer
Once sealed we can move forward with our epoxy system.
You may not achieve a perfectly 100% smooth surface without a very thick epoxy coating which can cause expenses to drastically rise
However you can certainly achieve a very nice floor that serves it’s purpose for this warehouse, keeping dust down, looks great and will be easy to clean
By knowing the clients budget we can put them in an epoxy system that will work, be affordable and last.
Using the correct products all throughout the process is key.
Primers that will seal the mastic to patching compounds that fill and cure quickly allowing us to complete this concrete warehouse floor as soon as possible to not delay business .
Epoxy coatings can serve a purpose in any commercial facility and even residential garages, basements and even exteriors with the correct top coat.
