Epoxy floors can add an aesthetic appeal to your garage or workspace while being easy to maintain. This type of flooring is also safe and environmentally friendly. It is important to note that different grades of epoxy provide different levels of durability. Read on to learn about the durability of epoxy floors.
The thinnest type of epoxy, and therefore least durable, is the solvent-based coating. In solvent-based coating you may find solids from 30 to 70 percent. Although water-based coating is not as durable as a 100 percent solid epoxy flooring, it does provide a smooth finish that protects the floor against stains and chemicals. If you want the most durable epoxy floor available, the solid flooring should be your go-to option. It is a good choice for areas with a lot of traffic.

If you are looking to redo your garage, basement, or other cement floor, consider epoxy floor finishing. This type of flooring is durable and visually pleasing while requiring minimal maintenance. Here is an overview of epoxy floor finishing.
In order to install epoxy flooring you must be equipped with the proper tools; this is one reason you should talk to a professional flooring service. You will need a floor buffer, preferably with a bristle scrub pad, as well as a drum sander. These will help you during etching and removal of coatings, respectively. Other tools include a chisel, float, trowel, and rollers. When it comes to clothing you should be wearing protective goggles, a mask, and gloves. You can isolate painted surfaces from painted ones using drop cloths and painter’s tape. Finally, you will need your epoxy paint and your activator.
Your floor must be cleaned before the installation of epoxy coating. First sweep the floor, wash it, and then patch up any large cracks. If your floor is not sealed, the next step is to begin etching the concrete. If your floor is sealed, however, you must sand the floor before etching; the surface of the floor must be somewhat rough in order for the epoxy to stick properly. Spread a mixture of water and muriatic acid across the floor and then rinse it with water.
Be sure that the floor is damp and the temperature is reasonably warm when you apply your epoxy. Your epoxy should be applied from the outside in; lay down a layer around the perimeter and then cover the rest of the floor. You can apply a top coat after the primer dries overnight. You can walk on your floor after two to three days and drive vehicles over it after four days.

If you are business minded and have a background in anything from dry cleaning to epoxy flooring, getting involved in a franchise may be a smart move. However, there are many factors to consider beforehand. Here is what you need to know about buying a franchise business.
Consider Your Specialties
When it comes to buying a franchise business, it is important to start by thinking about your background. Franchises provide successful business models, but they must have someone with knowledge and experience in the field at the helm. If you have a background in flooring, you will be much more successful in buying an epoxy flooring franchise than a fast food franchise. Once you have identified your specialties you can make a list of possible franchises and begin to narrow them down.
Failure Rates, Startup Costs, and Competition
Once you have a concrete list of potential franchises, you have several aspects to consider: failure rates, startup costs, and local competition. All of these components are highly variable but also highly important. A franchise with a high failure rate should be avoided; failure could be due to a multitude of reasons, but it is always a risk nonetheless. Smaller startup costs are a plus because it requires a smaller investment. Your local competition should be a determining factor in which franchise you choose. Competition will make it difficult for your new establishment to thrive. If you open up an epoxy flooring service right next to another one, it will likely fail.
Budget and Legal Representation
No matter what type of franchise you choose, you must prepare your finances and acquire legal aid. You must be able to keep your business afloat until it starts to acquire regular customers, and you must always be aware of what you are signing.

If you’re working with a tight budget, it might be tempting to hire an unlicensed contractor to install your new epoxy flooring. After all, unlicensed contractors generally work for cash and typically charge less than licensed professionals. But before you work with an unlicensed contractor, you should know the dangers of doing so. For starters, in states that require licensing, hiring an unlicensed contractor is illegal. If an unlicensed contractor is injured on your property, he or she can sue you for damaged. And if an unlicensed contractor damages your home or business, you’ll have a hard time recovering money to cover the repair costs.
As you can see, you have more to lose by hiring an unlicensed contractor than the few bucks you’ll save on labor costs. REDRHINO Inc. isn’t just another epoxy flooring company in Los Angeles—we are one of the country’s leading epoxy coating suppliers and installers. We are licensed and insured, so you can rest easy when we’re on the job. Call REDRHINO today at (310) 734-2790 to schedule your consultation.
