Let the storm rage on, the cold never bothered us anyway! Yes, it may be freezing out, but depending on your project and working conditions, our team can still professionally install an industrial-grade epoxy floor in your basement. Here’s how we do it.
Understanding the best epoxy flooring conditions
Whether you’re painting your home or even building it, environmental conditions play an important role in the success of your project. Most projects require warm, dry conditions for products to set properly or material not to be damaged, which is why many people believe that installing an epoxy basement floor can’t be done over the winter. Except that they’re wrong! The reality is that, other than in extreme weather conditions, winter is the perfect time of year to do it.
Cold temperatures won’t delay your garage or basement refurbishment when you work with us because we use a very high-quality epoxy that will set solidly even in very low temperatures. In fact, it will still set and cure at temperatures well below freezing, so it’s just as easy for us to work on a garage floor as it is to work in a warmer basement.
The main consideration is that it can take a bit longer to cure fully than it would in warmer weather. Rather than being ready for foot traffic and vehicle traffic in 24 hours, it will take a full two to three days (unless the space can be heated, of course).
Why install your epoxy flooring in winter?
There are some great advantages to waterproofing your basement floor or installing epoxy basement floors in the winter. Because many people are unaware that these floors can be installed in almost any weather conditions, winter is a low-demand time of year. This means you can get your floor installed faster with no wait time. Since salt on the road and freeze/thaw temperatures are some of the main reasons why concrete garage floors and basements deteriorate, installing an epoxy floor in the winter will effectively repair your space and prevent more costly damage through this season.
Finally, because of the composition of the product, your epoxy floor will be of the same high quality, durability, and attractiveness if it is installed in the winter as opposed to the warmer months, so you get the same fantastic results!
