Epoxy Flooring

Saturday, September 9th, 2017

At a friend’s house I saw a beautiful white resin floor that appeared low gloss or more matte than the typical high gloss epoxy floor. It also had a bit of texture to it, almost like sand but much finer. Not like the no-slip gritty industrial stuff and kind of a soft texture. My friend said that he found the installers of the epoxy flooring online and it was an Italian product that could be custom colored and was painted on in many layers, over a few days, and then took a day for the fumes to disappear. It was put on over existing tile.

They are a provider for all residential, commercial, and industrial floor installation. They also make many different types of epoxy floors – decorative flake, shop floor, metallic epoxy and urethane cement. Some are glossy, harder, some are more matte,  flexible, exterior, interior, etc. They have standard colors on their website. It should take a few days to install and can be poured over existing floors.

Another friend had astonishing results! Their garage floor had some big cracks that were wide and uneven in height. Also had stains and grudge from decades of use. They are really  nice guys and were very professional in communicating the restoration process.  Honestly, my friend was merely hoping for a patch job and nice paint to make look a little better – but the crew spent a lot of time flattening the concrete cracks with a special a grinder.  Cracks were filled with patch, then floor was painted and a day later epoxied. The garage floor is unrecognizable – flat, clean and beautiful. This is a no-brainer in terms of return and value on an inexpensive investment. They were extremely professional, and the crew did an amazing 2-day job on this huge garage.

Its been almost 1 year since the work was completed, and it has been PERFECT!  A huge win – competitive pricing, best warranty,  professional epoxy floor quality. Highly recommended!

Hardware and Industrial Supplies

Monday, November 19th, 2012

Trying to improve your own house can be a very big project. Though there are some who just do small improvement, there are others who are good with their hands and are able to renovate a room or a part of their house. The things that they need are the right tools and supplies for their project. If hardware or industrial supplies are needed, one can check out Reid Supply which has lots of different hardware available for renovation needs or if someone needs to add fans, ducting, airconditioners and even walls and windows. It would really be a big achievement when the project has been finished.

Rugs

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

The floors look a bit plain without rugs on them. The rugs make the room feel a little bit more cozy. There are also outdoor rugs that can be put on the porch or if you have a small space outdoors where you can eat breakfast. Having the rugs under your feet would feel more comfortable. Your feet will even feel a little cooler during the hot weather. It would make eating your breakfast more enjoyable.

Tiles

Monday, February 1st, 2010

We always try to improve our homes. It may be just adding something here and there or renovating some parts of it to make it look different or modern. Sometimes, others really don’t notice the change but feel different somehow. There was a time when we went to a friend’s house and their floor was lined with wood. I’ve gotten so used to it being there that when I went back there I didn’t notice that they already took it apart and it showed white clean tiles. It only occurred to me at that time when I was thinking there was something different with how the whole room looked. It did become an improvement and somehow it looked cleaner. Maybe because each tile was so white and clean which somehow gave the whole room a different feel. It’s also easier to clean because it seems like the dirt are easily swept with a broom or some cloth.
