10 Factors In Choosing The Right Epoxy Flooring Specialist

Updated: Apr 28

When seeking an epoxy flooring specialist it is important to recognize your return on investment. Hiring the right epoxy flooring contractor is vital to maximizing your dollars spent. Please allow us to list the top ten reasons why.

Top Ten Reasons to Hire High Performance Systems

1. Experience matters, and hiring a well-seasoned epoxy flooring specialist will likely result in a better outcome. Check to see how long the contractor has been in business and do request references, particularly of older epoxy flooring systems.

2. There is an endless list of clients that have chosen to go with a painting contractor, for example, thinking price is the only concern.

The list is endless but just to highlight the point, thermally cured epoxy flooring systems require a specific substrate profile. As best stated by the Institute of Concrete Repair, those minimum standards cannot be achieved without the correct down pressure or weight of the equipment and the tooling that will create the appropriate profile.

Think of it as similar to that of preparing your home for painting; with the proper sanding, it will perform well under any freeze and thaw conditions that exist. Acid washing or a lightweight floor buffing machine cannot possibly provide the profile required by the coating manufacturer's requirements.

3. Insist that your epoxy floor coating contractor provides a full array of resinous flooring projects, this will best provide tangible evidence of their ability to have the foresight of knowing what best serves your needs.

4. Request physical samples to illustrate the resinous flooring system that best meets your operation's needs.

5. Interview the epoxy flooring company to best qualify their expertise, and does their common floor installation line up with your needs.

6. A good epoxy flooring specialist will provide the data sheets and SDS data sheets to inform you of the product's strengths and limitations as well as any safety concerns that will need to be addressed before commencement.

7. Be sure to get three quotations to confirm your epoxy flooring costs are being priced both economically as well as appropriately to meet your goals.

8. Discuss any unusual circumstances that affect the proposed flooring project, this eliminates any misunderstandings once you have gone to contract


9. Request all the available information available for the epoxy flooring system you have chosen to include color charts, and case studies of like jobs they have installed historically.

10. Finally, request your epoxy coating contractor's insurance thresholds and of course request, that they include your company as "additionally insured", as this minimizes your liability, and in the outside chance something goes wrong you will be protecting your business from any unnecessary exposures.
