You’re considering installing an epoxy floor for your home or commercial premises. But how do you know which contractor is right for you? With numerous options to choose from, it's essential to navigate through the choices and select a contractor you can trust to deliver both quality and reliability. This guide will walk you through the process of finding a reliable epoxy flooring contractor in Brisbane, ensuring that your project is in capable hands.
Tip 1: Check reviews
One of the best ways to determine whether or not a company is reputable is to read their reviews and testimonials. Some contractors will showcase real-life customer reviews on their websites. It's also worth checking Google reviews and the business’s social media pages. If the majority of a business’s reviews are negative, you know to steer clear.
We invite you to check out our many five-star reviews.
Tip 2: Look at past work
Choosing a company that has a solid reputation is crucial, but it's also wise to look through their project gallery and see the quality of work for yourself. Pay particular attention to past jobs that are similar to what you want.
Here’s where you can see some of our past work.
Tip 3: Compliance & Safety
The right epoxy can be durable and look fantastic. Ensure the conversation around the appropriate level of slip resistance is had. This detail will factor in aspects such as:
- Proximity to water or moisture
- The limitations of the traffic. This will include elderly, children, animals and anyone with permanent injuries or disablement
- Although not critical compared with safety, how the area is to be cleaned and with what products should also be discussed
Tip 4: Warranty
Many warranties are NOT worth the paper they’re written on. If your contractor is offering a 10 year warranty and has been in business for 2-3 years, you may like to question the validity. Another important consideration is what’s included, what’s excluded and if the warranty overlaps workmanship and the manufacturer. Keeping in mind that, on occasion, there are issues with products, what warranty are you getting from your installer regarding possible product failure? Further, how is this being proven? Are they recording the information for potential future warranty claims? If so, how is this information being recorded and where is it being stored?
Are epoxy floors worth the money?
If you want a durable flooring solution that looks great and can withstand the pressures of a residential or commercial environment, you should consider investing in epoxy flooring.
Epoxy flooring offers concrete surface protection, and fire and slip resistance, making it an excellent choice for a range of commercial settings.
Compared to other flooring options, epoxy outperforms in several aspects. It is more water resistant than timber and quicker to install than concrete. Additionally, epoxy is easier to clean than these types of flooring.
Moreover, with a wide range of finish options available, you can customise it to match your preferences.
Can I do epoxy myself?
While it may be tempting to try and save money by taking on a DIY project, it's important to note that when it comes to epoxy flooring, doing it yourself is not a long-term solution.
Although it can enhance the appearance of concrete, DIY application may require regular reapplication to maintain its effectiveness. Ultimately, hiring a specialist installer will prove to be more cost-effective.
Improperly installed flooring is susceptible to wear and tear, cracks and damage, which can significantly decrease the value of your property and end up costing you more to repair the damage.
A professional epoxy flooring contractor has the expertise and tools to properly prepare the surface, ensuring that the epoxy adheres correctly. Without proper surface preparation, the epoxy may peel and potentially damage the underlying flooring.
Can epoxy flooring be used in residential settings as well?
Epoxy flooring is a fantastic option for residential floors because of its durable and long-lasting nature, making it ideal for handling heavy foot traffic and daily use.
Homeowners can enjoy a variety of design choices with epoxy, allowing them to personalise the flooring according to their preferred style and aesthetic preferences.
You’ve done your research and decided that epoxy flooring is the right solution for your home or business premises. Now it’s time to find a reliable epoxy flooring contractor to install your new floor.
Before you start your search
Before you begin researching your flooring contractor options, you must know precisely the type of flooring you want and the qualities (such as durability, slip-resistance and appearance) that would benefit your space. Epoxy flooring can be installed inside and outside residential, commercial, and industrial properties, so it's vital to have the what, where, and why clear before you proceed.
It can be useful to answer these questions before contacting an epoxy flooring business:
- Where will my epoxy flooring be installed, and what is the subfloor like?
- How much traffic will my epoxy floor endure?
- Am I looking for a specific design or finish?
- Do I have a strict installation deadline?
- Are there guidelines or standards I must adhere to, such as workplace health and safety requirements?
