  • Can garage floors be coated in winter or cold weather?
    Epoxy and polyaspartic coatings can be applied to garage floors in winter or cold weather, but the conditions must be suitable for the coating to cure properly. Generally speaking, these coatings can be applied in temperatures down to -30°C. Sometimes it may be necessary to use a space heater or other heating source to warm the area where the coating will be applied and to maintain the temperature while the coating cures. It is recommended that you consult with a JW Floor Coatings installer, who has experience with cold weather applications, to determine the best course of action for your specific needs.
  • Do I need to leave the house during installation?
    JW Flooring Coatings installers use high quality epoxy and polyaspartic materials with very low VOC content, allowing for interior application without harmful odors. While it is not required, some clients with chemical or noise sensitivities find it more convenient to leave the house during the installation process. Once the epoxy and polyaspartic flooring has cured and fully hardened, it is safe to re-enter the premises. However, in some cases, it is still recommended to ventilate the area for a few hours/days after installation to ensure that any remaining odors dissipate.
  • How long does a floor coating take to dry?
    The drying time for epoxy and polyaspartic coatings can vary depending on a number of factors, including the type of coating, the thickness of the application, and the environmental conditions during application. High temperatures and low humidity can accelerate the drying and curing time, while low temperatures and high humidity can slow it down. Generally speaking, epoxy and polyaspartic coatings can take anywhere from 12 to 24 hours to dry to the touch, and can take up to 72 hours to fully cure and harden. It is also important to avoid using the coated surface until it has fully cured and hardened, as premature use can damage the coating and compromise its integrity.
  • Can more than one colour be used for the same floor?
    Yes, it is possible to use more than one color for an epoxy and polyaspartic coated floor. In fact, using multiple colors can create a visually appealing and unique design for your floor. There are different techniques for incorporating multiple colors into an epoxy and polyaspartic coated floor, depending on the desired outcome. One common technique is to use a base color for the floor and then add decorative chips or flakes in a contrasting color. Another technique is to use different colors for different areas of the floor, such as using one color for a border or accent area and another color for the main area of the floor. It's even possible to include a logo or other design. JW Floor Coatings installers will help you choose the right colors, design a layout that meets your needs, and ensure that the application is done correctly for a long-lasting and visually appealing result.
  • Are epoxy and polyaspartic compatible with floor heating?
    Yes, epoxy and polyaspartic floor coatings are generally compatible with floor heating systems.

However, it is important to ensure that the floor heating system is properly installed and functioning before applying the coating. Any leaks or malfunctions in the heating system can cause the coating to delaminate or crack, which can compromise the integrity of the floor. It is also important to choose the right type of coating for your floor heating system. Some types of epoxy and polyaspartic coatings may not be suitable for use with certain types of heating systems, such as radiant heating systems. Therefore, it is important to consult with a JW Floor Coatings installer to determine the best type of coating for your specific needs.
  • Can floor or stair slopes be corrected with epoxy and polyaspartic floor coatings?
    One common way to correct minor slopes or imperfections in floor or stair slopes with epoxy and polyaspartic coatings is to apply a self-leveling compound. This is a special type of coating that is designed to flow and level out to create a smooth, even surface. It is important to note that correcting floor or stair slopes with epoxy and polyaspartic coatings can be a complex and technical process, and should only be done by a professional who has experience with these types of coatings. Additionally, it is important to identify the root cause of the slope and address any underlying structural issues before applying the coating to ensure a long-lasting and durable result.
