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. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done.
The proper installation of epoxy coatings requires specialist expertise. Incorrectly installed flooring won’t stand up to wear and tear, is prone to cracking and damage, and ultimately devalues your property.
To help you find an epoxy flooring contractor that you can trust, we've come up with a couple of tips. Check them out below.
Before you start your search
Before you begin researching your flooring contractor options, it's essential that you 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 prior to contacting an epoxy flooring business:
- Where will my epoxy flooring be installed, and what is the sub floor 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?
How to find the right epoxy flooring business
Tip 1: Check reviews
One of the best ways to determine whether or not a company is reputable is to have a read of their reviews and testimonials. Some contractors will showcase real-life customer reviews on their website. 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.

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.

Tip 3: Don't forget safety
Epoxy is durable and attractive, but it’s slip-resistance that’s one of the most significant drawcards. Be sure that the epoxy flooring contractor you work with adheres to all strict Australian safety standards. Here are two to look out for:
- Pharmaceutical, hospitality, warehousing, and food and beverage processing projects must meet the OH&S standards set by HACCP, TGA, AQIS, and Food Safe.
- Slip-resistant coatings must comply with Australian Standards AS 3661.1 (1993), AS 4586, and AS 4663 (2004).
