It is very unlikely that you are interested in watching a time lapse video of us grinding and epoxying a 5500 square foot concrete floor. Too bad, that’s all we have for you today. πŸ™‚

This is 3 days of video sped up and reduced to 1 minute and 57 seconds. We started with a 5,500 sf concrete floor painted about 5 years ago that was in fairly good condition but with some flaking and some cracks and divots in the concrete.

The process in very very brief highlights:

  • Renovate the walls first if needed. You don’t want paint or residue on the new floor
  • Clean the floor
  • Grind the paint off of the floor. *We found the best tool for this job is called The Viper, made by Werkmaster.
  • Clean the floor.
  • Grind more.
  • Clean again.
  • Put on full face respirator. The epoxy fumes are nasty!
  • Lay down coat 1 and spread it out with a squidgy
  • Let it dry for 12 hours
  • Lay down coat 2, let dry for 12 hours
  • Lay down coat 3, let dry for 72 hours minimum.

That should do it. Your concrete should look like it has a layer of glass on it. Sweet!

Now its ready to put hot tubs on, or cars, or whatever you have.

Enjoy πŸ™‚
