So we decided to formulate a couple of epoxy flooring kits for basement floors and they’ve quickly become one of our most popular kits!It’s a beautiful cost effective way to paint problematic concrete basement floors or encapsulate existing VCT Tiles with a beautiful, waterproof, stain proof and super durable epoxy finish. We always recommend removing the VCT tiles, sometimes this can be dangerous if they are asbestos tiles so please take proper precautions when handling asbestos tiles.For coating over VCT tiles or coating over the black mastic if you removed the VCT tiles, purchase our Special Primer (above) in addition to the basement epoxy floor kit. We would recommend you do two coats of the Special Primer to ensure good coverage.If you would like to remove the mastic, we’ve gotten good feedback from customers who have used Bean-N-Doo Soy Gel to remove the mastic, it’s non toxic and makes a very messy job a lot easier. We would suggest you epoxy right over the mastic as this customer did in the images below. Now you can get the unmatched beauty and durability of an epoxy floor rather than settling for a retail grade enamel or water based basement floor paint that require constant repainting and cannot be applied to floors with moisture issues. Our Wet Basement Kit allows you to seal in moisture with the highest hydrostatic pressure resistant primer/sealer that is compatible with our epoxy paint. See the Wet Basement Kit above. Our basement epoxy is a three part epoxy versus the typical two part epoxy which contains a built in primer with our patent pending adaptive molecular technology which allows it to bond to less than perfect surfaces. Only ArmorGarage Basement Epoxy lets you coat your floor with minimal prep while providing an unrivaled 5 Year Guarantee against wear, peeling, yellowing or dulling! Don’t be fooled by exaggerated guarantees that only cover peeling.

You’ll hate yourself later. A 2-pack is a paint-like product that comes in 2 cans, you mix it in a certain proportion, and you have a limited time to apply it. Regular paint will fail. And I don’t mean “will come off in nice sheets you can peel up, oh no. Other than the failing spots, the paint will hold firm. Until, of course, you overcoat it with a new coat – then it’ll separate! I have found no decent way to remove old paint from concrete, short of lots and lots of paint stripper (and you think epoxy is expensive!) Unfortunately when many people paint, their goal is for it to look great the next week. My goal is for it to look great 10 years from now, because I really don’t like painting twice. (Or to be more precise, I don’t like prepping twice. Prep is hard, but you have to do it well or your paint fails.) Cheap paint is only worth it if your time is worth 50 cents an hour. A 2-pack epoxy works because it is not paint, it is a plastic coating formed in place. It is much harder than paint. In fact, you’ll need to think about skid-resistance because an epoxy surface is so hard it is quite slippery. They sell special grit which can be added without risk of contaminating the chemical reaction which forms the plastic. Don’t use epoxies on floors with a lot of direct sunlight exposure. Ultraviolet light damages epoxy, causing it to haze, crack and craze. I would just not paint those, because there aren’t any viable options at your friendly neighborhood paint store. Your area’s commercial paint store will have some better-than-epoxy chemistries which are inherently UV resistant, and I would (and do) use those. They’re not cheap.basement floor epoxy 4Our basement epoxy is a three part epoxy versus the typical two part epoxy which contains a built in primer with our patent pending adaptive molecular technology which allows it to bond to less than perfect surfaces.

Use a long-handled roller to apply the epoxy in a thin coat. A second coat may be necessary, but be sure to allow 24 hours before applying it. Wait until the epoxy has fully dried before installing a new floor.basement floor epoxy 7We will be finishing our basement in our new house – over the next two years or so. Eventually, we will put down flooring in most of the basement (although some parts will remain unfinished). Originally, we were going to put down two part epoxy but also considering paint to save money. Are there advantages of using epoxy over paint? We will be using the unfinished basement as a gym and craft room until it is finished.
