Epoxy Floor Installers in Salem Oregon

Since 2012, Fast Finish has been prepping concrete surfaces for Epoxy floor installations. Often times, it was for other contractors, as they needed just the prep work and cleaned ready to use surface. One advantage that Fast Finish has, is to get rid of the smaller particulates from the concrete grinding that can cause the box store variety  epoxy kits to delaminate.

Although relatively new to the installation process, in regards to sheer number of installs and years in business compared to other companies, Fast Finish came into the arena at a time when the manufactures made huge leaps forward in the technology of the products. This is why Fast Finish has done as many repair jobs as new installations in the last six years. The advantage and luck  of coming in at the right time for this particular industry.

Epoxy floors have gained a lot of notice over the last several years for their stunning appearance, easy maintenance and durability. The extra costs outweigh most commercially installed floor systems on the cleaning maintenance alone, and the "wow" factor is usually unmatched. From basic broadcast flake systems, to multiple color metallic looks, the epoxy floor systems are here to stay.

Sealers and Coatings on concrete

A contractor who takes on a stripping job is, by definition, already dealing with an unhappy customer as “You’re solving somebody’s problem, which means you’re in the middle of a negative situation instead of a positive one. If there’s ever a time for expectation management, it’s stripping and resealing.”

Take care of this problem in the testing phase, particularly if restaining or resealing is involved. Testing only one area encourages the false impression that every other spot will turn out exactly the same way, .So do two or three areas. You’ll likely end up with two or three different shades. “Have the client settle for a range, instead of a single sample,” when stripping sealers.

Also, test the most difficult spot on the floor, not one that seems to be average.Estimate on the most difficult areas, the job can only go better than expected or Chances are, that you may just make the job worse.”
