Taking on the do-it-yourself (DIY) project of an epoxied garage floor in our previous home goes down as the worst project that we’ve ever taken on ourselves. Though we did everything that we were “supposed” to do to prep the garage floor, our epoxied job still began to peel within a couple of months. We recleaned and repainted, and then recleaned and repainted again, but we could never get the job to look professional.
If an epoxied garage floor is on your list of wants, hiring a professional such as Rocket City Epoxy is highly recommended for several crucial reasons.
Rocket City Epoxy owner Will Guerin says that his professional and highly experienced team guarantees a flawless finish every single time due to their surface preparation, high quality of materials, and application technique.
Guerin also says that his team will ensure that the project is done fast, with a standard two-car garage typically taking less than three hours from the time they begin applying the product. Though he recommends waiting 24-48 hours after the job is completed before bringing your cars and other garage items back inside, he said that his product will withstand the heavy traffic almost immediately if need be.
Rocket City Epoxy is highly experienced in tackling surfaces of all kinds, and though garage floors are the most common jobs they are hired for, they are also often hired for other concrete jobs such as patios, pool decks, commercial retail buildings, churches, and more.
Guerin’s team recently completed a massive job inside a local church that completely transformed its interior, giving it an updated, clean, fresh, eye-catching aesthetic.
Because his team has had extensive experience tackling jobs of all kinds, Guerin knows firsthand how important it is to hire professionals who understand how to prep the surface well.
Issues such as moisture problems, cracks, and uneven surfaces compromise the final product, but Guerin says that his team at Rocket City Epoxy will be able to spot and address these issues ahead of time while creating an ideal surface to work with.
When asked why homeowners and business owners enjoy having their floors epoxied, Guerin says that the aesthetics of it (and increased home value) is always the number one draw.
Other undeniable benefits of having your garage or concrete floor epoxied include its durability, light reflectivity (it’ll often make your garage appear much brighter), and its resistance to chemicals.
“We have so many options that will make this project customizable to exactly what you want,” shares Guerin, who says that he tries to work with each person’s budget to find a desired outcome that works for them across the board. (Psst: A standard two-car garage can be done flawlessly for as little as $2,000 and last for 20+ years!)
He continues to share that having an epoxied floor not only increases the value of the home or business, but it’s also incredibly durable and easy to maintain.
Guerin says that Rocket City Epoxy, who does epoxy garage floors in Madison, offers several finishes including flakes (in every color!), quartz, hybrid stone, and (stunning!) pigment.
“We give the best options and let you customize your floor however you want!”
The process for hiring Rocket City Epoxy is easy. Simply give Will a call, send him a text, or fill out this inquiry form on their website. Share about the space you’re interested in having finished, and then he’ll shoot you back a quote. He will then attempt to tackle your project as quickly as possible, often within a few days to a couple of weeks!
I recently spent time with Guerin and his team while they finished a three-car garage floor plus a garage closet at a new construction home. The wife that was moving into the home knew that her husband wanted an epoxied garage floor, so she had the floor done just days before closing as a big surprise for her husband.
I was able to be there as the first products were poured, and I was amazed at the efficiency of their team.
When asked what Guerin loves about Rocket City Epoxy, he shared how proud he is of the quality of their products and how most final products are unique.
“This job can be a challenge but really fun too.”
Note: Guerin advises that one’s space must be emptied before his team gets to work and that they do not offer garage-clearing services.
Author note: After weeks spent talking with Guerin, meeting his team, putting my own eyes on his epoxy process, and talking with one of his lead builders that he does work for, I put my full stamp of approval behind Rocket City Epoxy. Our own garage floor was epoxied when we built it, but ours looks nothing like the stunning quality of Rocket City Epoxy. I highly recommend his services when looking for a reputable company to finish your concrete services.
