Your floors are the unsung hero of your facility; they support you in every aspect of your day to day activity. When it comes to choosing the right resinous flooring for your space, you need something tailored to your specific needs. Consulting with Epoxy Coating Specialists means receiving custom epoxy floors made simple.
From start to finish, we’ll be committed to getting your project completed on your terms. Let us walk you through our project timeline for custom epoxy floors in Kansas City.
Before you reach out
Before you give us a call, there are some things about your facility you should consider. In order for you the customer and us the contractor to be set up for success, we need to have an optimal plan to install your custom epoxy floors. Some basic requirements we will need include:
- The installation area to be cleared of equipment, machinery, or any inventory.
- A clean area where all surfaces have been sanitized if necessary
- An area reserved for mixing and staging our products–this should be an open area that is adjacent to the place of work
- Permanent lighting beyond natural light
Preparing all of these things ahead of time ensures that we are able to get to work on your project as soon as possible, and as safely as possible.
Depending on your industry, you might need to take some extra precautions to ensure the safety of your equipment and products. If you are a food & beverage facility, make sure that no products are being stored or produced near the project space, as they could be affected by the construction process. The same goes for medical equipment at healthcare facilities, furry friends at animal care facilities, and anywhere else that may have sensitive products.
After you reach out, we will send our team members to your facility for a consultation, the most important step in any custom epoxy flooring project.
The consultation is our opportunity to get to know your space, and discuss your vision for the project. We are looking to build the scope of the job, to make sure we provide you with lasting results that exceed your expectations.
There are two major pieces to a consultation from custom epoxy floors in Kansas City.
Environmental risk assessment
When building out a project timeline for custom epoxy floors, the environmental factors in and around the facility play a major role. An environmental risk assessment is the first step in the consultation process to ensure the safety of our team and yours. We look at elements like room temperature, how well the area is ventilated, the area’s expected exposure to moisture, and more. All of these factors impact how we approach the job.
Most of the epoxy coatings we use need to cure and dry in a temperature-controlled environment. If your facility is subject to extreme cold or heat, we’ll help you evaluate the space and develop a solution to manage the temperature during the project. This may mean simply turning off certain equipment or adjusting the thermostat until we cure the flooring. We do have products capable of being installed in frigid environments if temperature control is not available.
If the concrete flooring underneath the epoxy floor has a problem with moisture, it could negatively impact the quality and longevity of the epoxy coating, meaning more repairs in the future. If our team finds it necessary, we can also help you with pre-construction services like concrete repair and restoration, in addition to determining what type of flooring service would best fit your needs.
While our team only uses the most high-quality materials that emit the lowest amount of odor, there are still harmless smells associated with epoxy coating. If your space is properly prepared, there should be little to no effect on your facility. We recommend making employees aware of the upcoming project and, if required, providing our SDS sheets to alleviate any concerns.
Building the scope of the project
Our team members will also come prepared with a series of questions to help us piece together the scope of your custom epoxy floor project. This includes what you need from your floors, how long your timeline is, and what your maintenance plan looks like. Below are some examples of topics your project manager will cover so you can make preparations.
How soon will your floor need to be finished?
This date will become our deadline for when the floor needs to be ready to use.
When will you be prepared to start the project?
This will be the day that our team begins either pre-construction or installation.
Are there any days or times when we will not be able to work on your project between the start date and the deadline?
Discuss any disruptions to the installation schedule with your project manager beforehand so that our team can find an appropriate stopping point.
Will you be shutting down your facility while the project is being completed?
Depending on the size and operations of your facility, we may recommend that you completely close down the area until project completion for safety and efficiency. If this isn’t possible, our team may be able to work overnight, weekends, or holidays while you resume operations during the day (know that this may affect the pricing and timeline).
Custom epoxy floor expectations
What are you missing from your current floors that epoxy coating can provide?
If we know more about where your current floor is lacking, we can better recommend an appropriate epoxy coating solution based on your needs.
How do you expect your epoxy floors to perform?
Selecting criteria like the ability to withstand heavy fork truck traffic or slip-resistance will help us build a custom epoxy floor solution that meets your expectations.
How long do you need this floor to last?
Different flooring options may provide different levels of durability based on your facility’s daily operations.
Does your floor need to be UV stable?
If your floor is exposed to large amounts of sunlight, you may need added UV protection to prevent discoloration.
Taking care of your custom epoxy floors
How will your floors primarily be used?
This will help us customize levels of durability and determine what material would be best.
How do you plan to take care of your new epoxy coating?
While epoxy flooring is among the most low-maintenance of flooring options, it still needs to be cleaned and taken care of from time to time to ensure its longevity.
Are you prepared to clean it?
Cleaning epoxy flooring is fast and simple, but should be done regularly and with the proper supplies. Not sure where to start? We can help make equipment recommendations through our strategic partners
Within 48 hours after the consultation is complete, you will receive a custom, detailed proposal from your project manager. It will include:
- Project area (square-footage)
- Two flooring system options for you to choose from: best and value
- Project schedule as determined by you
- Project phases (projects can typically be completed in one continuous phase, unless otherwise outlined by you due to schedule or other limitations)
- Price estimate
- Any additional notes from your consultation
- Warranty information
- Our ECS terms and conditions for your reference
After receiving the proposal, you will still have the ability to consult with your Epoxy Coating Specialists representative to make your custom project fit your time and budget. One way or another, we can find a solution to get you the flooring system option that works best for you..
What you can expect from your installation process
The installation timeline varies from client to client once the process begins because it is completely customizable. Similarly, how long your epoxy floor coating will need to cure is dependent on the size of your space, type of flooring, and environmental conditions.
What you need to know is this: your timeline is our timeline. Once we agree to a plan, we’ll stick to it. We understand that when you’re a business, time isn’t just time; it’s money. That’s why we are committed to providing you exceptional, quality service to install your custom epoxy floors on your terms.
