Repainting Your Hardwood Floors

April 6, 2010

Things to think about when re-painting your hardwood floors? What type are you painting? What type of hardwood floor you have will determine what preparations you need to do before you can re-paint. These instructions are for a hardwood floor that is varnished.

– First thing is to sand the wood floors that you would like to paint to remove the old varnish and to smooth them. A sander will make your wood floors easier to paint. If you do not own a power floor sander, rent one. Doing it by hand, with sand paper, is tough.  Place a mask over your nose and mouth when you sand. Be sure you take the necessary steps to keep the dust contained in your rooms where you are sanding.

– Clean your floors with a good wood floor cleaner or just use vinegar and water. You want to make sure your floors are not only smooth but also free of residue.

– Tape the areas where you are going to paint. You want to protect your walls from any paint that you put on your floors.

– Apply primer to your wood floors. A primer prepares your floor for painting by contributing to a smooth surface and ensuring that your paint adheres to the surface. It also protects your wood floors. Make sure the primer can be used on wood floors. Once done, apply a sealer that is formulated for wood floors.

Super Floor Coat have a variety of  epoxy paint for hardwood and concrete. These are mil specs paint which were originally for tough concrete floor coatings, but with the advances in the paint chem technology. Chemist have gotten very creative and able to formulate paints for any industry and uses.

Most Versatile Epoxy Paint

March 19, 2010

Some questions have come up about what is the differences between our mono epoxy ts200 and ts100 1part epoxy. Both are used as a concrete floor coating sealant.

The 1part TS100 has silicone will give you a harder finish. Both are durable, but if your floors have more foot traffic exposure and more abrasions use the TS200.  Plus TS200 mono epoxy is self priming versus the TS100 has to have a primer to go with it.

There would be more mixing involved with the TS100 than TS200.  If you don’t have much traffic and maybe its like a showroom area that you know people will not be walking all over, go with TS100.

TS200 is more forgiving when dealing with the application than TS100. Probably the easiest application, no brainer is the TS200 and you can do a lot more with it than TS100.

Residential Concrete Paint

March 18, 2010

There are many do-it-yourself projects are lurking around the corner. Some are in the kitchen and floors. Floors are usually indirectly linked to the project when you’re doing a complete remodel.

A simple example is a complete bathroom job. This consist of gutting out the bathroom plumbing and flooring. Most floors are just vinyl work, but once in a while you have a concrete. Concrete floor coating with epoxy paint is practical for sealant.

Epoxy paint is water proof, has high adhesion, flexible and forgiving to work with, depending on the brand and surface application.  There are many other to choose from.

There are some differences if you’re working on your garage floors compared to the heavy construction industrial settings. The residential type of epoxy paint like the TS200 mono epoxy is one of the best if your floor doesn’t require more prep. The TS200 is self priming as there is no need to add mix, sanding, blasting. This paint is low “voc” which is why many homeowners love this stuff.

For the heavy or lite commercial that wants a tougher seal to withstand the oil, huge traffic, and heat from tires. This stuff isn’t epoxy its the stuff that has strong chemicals that deals with tough grimes.

As we stated overall go with the mono epoxy TS200 for your home project.
