Decorative Epoxy Floor Coatings Installed Over Plywood
Can your beautiful floors be installed over plywood?
We get asked this all the time. The short answer is yes.
Whether you are building new or renovating, your plywood subfloor is good enough for one of our floors if you could also install tile on it.
That means you can have beautiful, seamless floor installed by Garage Kings. Depending on how you want to use your space, choose a flake, solid epoxy, or decorative marbled epoxy floor.
In the storage areas, go with flake or solid. In the home gym, go with flake. In the garage, anything goes!
In your kitchen, washrooms, and other living areas, go with an elegant metallic epoxy floor or marbled floor.
Installing over Plywood – the Process
Before your decorative epoxy floor is installed over plywood, you’ll want to ensure a couple of details:
- The plywood subfloor MUST be able to handle a tile floor.
- The boards must be installed with the seams as tight as possible.
- Any seams and screw holes will still need to be filled with an epoxy filler.
It typically takes an extra coat of high-build epoxy to install your floor over plywood due to the texture of the plywood.
Once any seams or holes have been filled, and one seal coat applied, the process continues just like over a concrete surface.
Installing your Decorative Floor over concrete
Building on a slab or doing a walkout basement floor?
Concrete is a great surface for decorative epoxy floors.
The process is simple:
- Diamond grind the entire surface with dust-controlled equipment. Giant vacuums are connected to the grinding gear.
- Take care of minor crack or divot repairs
- Install the decorative epoxy floor coating that you have chosen!
