Why Not DIY for Epoxy Flooring?
When you want to enhance the longevity and aesthetic appeal of your garage floor, epoxy coatings are a prime pick for residences and businesses in Sacramento. But in today’s do-it-yourself (DIY) culture, it might seem tempting to take a hands-on approach. After all, you can easily watch a few online tutorials, right? Popular commercials show a simple process of sweeping the floor, slathering on the epoxy, and sprinkling on a few flakes. Sounds easy! However, the actual process is complex and better left to experienced professionals.
Reasons to Use Epoxy Specialists
Excellence in execution – the professionals at West Coast Epoxy honed their skills over the years and are well-versed in the art of epoxy installation. They know how to prep the surface accurately (it requires more than a quick sweeping), the precise proportion of resin and hardener needed (based on temperature and humidity), and how to evenly apply the coating for a seamless, high-quality finish. DIY attempts may result in air bubbles, poorly mixed solutions, or uneven applications – all of which can compromise the look and durability of the finish.
Safety first – epoxy coatings require concrete grinding for surface preparation, which produces a fine dust. West Coast Epoxy utilizes HEPA filters to collect this dust, protecting both your property and your health. We spare no expense to use the best equipment available for this aspect of the job.
Efficiency and time-saving – epoxy coating installation is labor-intensive and time-sensitive. If you’re unfamiliar with the process, you can end up prepping epoxy for use and then not using it all before it hardens in the bucket. That leads to waste and extra expense, plus the possibility of one part of the job having one color and the rest of the job looking slightly different. By choosing West Coast Epoxy, you’re engaging experts who accomplish the job swiftly and effectively, with little to no waste. DIY efforts usually take longer, with multiple trips to the store for supplies, and leave you with lots of wasted product.
Warranty assurances – at West Coast Epoxy, we offer lifetime guarantees on all our work. DIY projects lack that warranty, leaving you exposed if the coating fails or peels. With our professional installation, you rest assured that your investment is safeguarded.
Long-term cost effectiveness – At West Coast Epoxy, we use high-quality materials and equipment that aren’t available to the public. These superior products ensure an outstanding result that lasts longer and demands less maintenance. On the other hand, a DIY project may force you to settle for lower-quality materials, which can lead to more frequent upkeep and replacements, thereby increasing overall costs.
