Scorpion’s Scorpion PowerCOAT Epoxy Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I choose an epoxy floor coating?
Concrete floors are sure to break down and deteriorate over time leading to cracks, divots, and chips. Epoxy from a professional will ensure it is sealed and protected from the elements that can cause damage to your concrete while giving you an easy to clean and beautiful floor.
How to prepare for an epoxy installation?
Removing household items are a good start. In some cases, you will need to make arrangements to have these items stored elsewhere for up to 24-48 hours. This could be longer depending on the type of flooring you decide to go with. In normal circumstances, you can walk on it in 24 hours but will need to delay return items or vehicles on it.
What if my concrete is not in perfect condition?
