WHAT IS EPOXY?
When mixed, epoxy resin and hardener form a rigid, plastic material that is resistant to degradation and adheres to the underlying surface. An epoxy floor coating is strong enough for the most demanding industrial environments, your garage, or your basement floor.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO EPOXY A FLOOR?
The time it takes us to install your epoxy floor is dependent on the surface area of your floor. Typically, we’ll need one to four days.
DO I HAVE TO LEAVE THE HOUSE WHILE EPOXY KING INSTALLS MY FLOOR?
No. Make yourself at home.
HOW LONG UNTIL I CAN WALK ON IT?
After the final application of top coat, we recommend waiting 24 hours before you walk on it and 48 hours before you move your furniture on to it. Remember, it’s wet paint.
HOW LONG UNTIL I CAN PARK A CAR ON MY GARAGE EPOXY FLOOR?
Wait before you park on your epoxy floor. Epoxy manufacturer specs suggest waiting 7 days. Who are we to disagree?
HOW STRONG ARE EPOXY FUMES?
Repeated exposure to epoxy fumes can result in dermatitis, and/or respiratory complications. Most symptoms from the inhalation of epoxy involve inflammation and therefore irritation of the nose, throat, and lungs. Repetitive and high amounts of exposure to these fumes can result in asthma.
IS EPOXY TOXIC TO ANIMALS?
Only the ones that touch it.

HOW MUCH DOES EPOXY COST?
An Epoxy King installed epoxy floor typically costs $2.50-$12 per square foot, or $600-$9600 for a one-car garage (about 250 square feet) and $1,000-$6,000 for a two-car garage (about 500 square feet). Ask about our 10-year warranty.
WHEN SHOULD I PLAN TO INSTALL MY EPOXY GARAGE FLOOR?
March-September. Epoxy is an exothermic material which means it releases heat as it sets. Because the epoxy is an exothermic material, a thick layer will hold more heat and therefore cure faster than a thin layer that dissipates. As temperatures get below 50º F, the time it takes the epoxy to set increases. Epoxy floor installation in fall and/or winter months, especially garages, can be challenging. Most epoxy contractors won’t even quote you, but we most certainly will.
