This facility sought our help to make their old beat-up floor look new again. When viewing the warehouse, they had a considerable amount of material that could cause severe damage to a regular floor, like heavy and corrosive batteries. Good thing our Rez-Stone epoxy has a few different options to choose from for this scenario! But, the most important item here is the integrity of the existing coating that has seen much better days. A simple, cost-effective recoat is an option if the existing coating is stuck. However, if the existing coating is not still wholly adhered, then the coating must be removed entirely before the new layer can be applied.

Hoover Wellsfeatures our own custom epoxy flooring called Rez-Stone. It is a great fit for businesses that want to apply an epoxy coating to their current concrete floor. However, you may be asking yourself the question, ‘Why would you want an epoxy floor?’
The most common reason for using an epoxy floor is just how versatile it is.Seriously, some of the systems we offer include resistances to chemicals, slips, sparks, heat,impacts andmore.Epoxy floors can make your operation safer! Epoxy reflects light better than concrete to help increase the overall brightness of the area and we can add lines/patterns to epoxy floors to help easily identify pathways and hazardous areas. From hazard markings and walkways to ads and logos, we can make it happen!
It also lasts a long time! Epoxy can last for many years, even when under constant stress from heavy use. As you can probably guess, it is harder to fix concrete than an epoxy covering. That layer of long-lasting epoxy serves as a layer of protection for your concrete floor underneath, protecting against chipping, cracking, and wear.

Concrete surfaces must be clean and sound. Remove all dirt, laitance, grease, curing compounds, and other bond-inhibiting contaminants by shot blasting, scarification, or other approved mechanical methods. Due to the relatively thin film thickness of the system, brush blasting is recommended with a S-280 shot or smaller to prevent blast marks from telegraphing through the coating. Treated surfaces vacuumed to remove all dust and dirt before applying any coatings.
