Restaurant Floor – Replacing a Failed Epoxy Floor

We Do Commercial Work Too!

1 Day Coatings proudly services the greater North Central Texas area – providing the highest quality industrial floor coating system available! Our teams can be in and out of your home, office or commercial facility in just one day.

We install the Vinyl Chip System designed and developed by Penntek Industrial Coatings. This flooring system combined the technology of Polyurea materials with the beauty of colored Vinyl Chips. Our floors are backed by a 15-year Residential Warranty and a 5-year Commercial Warranty!

In addition to our tough materials we have a wide range of color options to choose from. We have 13 pre-selected colors to choose from but can customize any color pattern due to our colored Vinyl Chip Flake system. Therefore, if you have a college team or local activity that you want to support – we can make your industrial grade floors reflect your pride!

This project entailed us removing an old epoxy floor coating from a Restaurant and their Commercial Kitchen. As you can see here, this epoxy floor was very resilient and difficult to remove. It took a lot of work to grind, sand down and etch the old epoxy floor away to expose a fresh layer of concrete.

Replacing a Failed Epoxy Floor System

It’s not uncommon for us to receive phone calls and emails from clients with failing epoxy floor systems. Oftentimes homeowners or commercial facilities will try to install a D-I-Y epoxy floor that lasts for only a few years. Eventually (and often due to incorrect prep work) these epoxy floor systems fail and leave you with a nasty paint that you can’t get rid of.

That’s when they call us. Our teams are specially trained to remove old epoxy floor coatings and to install our premier Vinyl Chip Flake system. Removing these aged epoxy floor coatings is no easy task – as you can see from our images. Oftentimes it requires rigorous grinding, sanding and acid washing to remove these stubborn materials.

However, once we successfully grind down to the concrete we are able to install a beautiful floor designed to last for years to come!

Our client selected a custom Vinyl Chip color for this Restaurant & Commercial Kitchen. These floors now reflect a beautiful blue, white and black ambiance that shines all throughout their facility! They are also tough and will hold up against stains, grease, abrasions and a multitude of other abuses - all of which Commercial kitchens are bound to sustain.

Custom Color Selection

For this particular job site, we installed a custom selection of Vinyl Chip Flakes. This Wichita Falls restaurant selected a blend of blue, white and black chip flakes.

As with all of our other projects we can create any assortment of colors that you desire! It’s part of the beauty of our product line and an aspect that our clients love!

Designing Our Floors to Last

So what exactly makes our industrial floor coatings so tough? Well, for starters – it’s the material makeup and our multi-layer system. As you can see from the image below, our floors are comprised of multiple layers including:

One key element that is not represented in this product image is prep-work! Our crews spend a lot of time prepping our concrete so that it properly bonds and adheres to our Polyurea base coat.

We take the time to thoroughly grind down the top layer of concrete (or remove an old flooring system) and vacuum away any loose debris. It is a time consuming process that requires a commercial concrete buffer (which we have).

Exposing a fresh layer of concrete allows our system to properly bond to any residential or commercial floors. This creates a lasting product that you’ll enjoy for years to come!

Commercial Facility – Floor Remodel

1 Day Coatings was recently contacted by a Commercial Facility that needed their floors remodeled. We were happy to meet with this client and see what we could do for them. As you can see from the image (below), this client started out with basic concrete floors and desired to upgrade to our protective Penntek Floor Coatings system.

This facility required a flooring system that could withstand heavy foot traffic and resistance to abrasions. Our 1 Day Coatings system is easily able to stand up to the challenge and provide the necessary protection that our client desired.

For those who may be new to our blog, 1 Day Coatings provides a 15-year Residential Warranty and 5-year Commercial Warranty on all flooring installations. We provide such a valuable service to our clients because we know that our floors are tough and provide exceptional value to all of our customers!

Overview of Our Installation: Prepping the Concrete

Our teams always follow the same procedure when installing our 1 Day Coatings system. For starters, we buff the floor using our floor commercial grinder to remove the top layer of concrete. Typically this top layer is aged & pitted with dust; therefore it is unable to adhere to any flooring applications. We grind this top layer of concrete to create a “fresh” layer of concrete for our product to adhere to.

Secondly, we vacuum the floors to suck up and remove any lose debris or dust. Additionally, we round the corners between our floors and walls – so our installation has a smooth finish. This is also a good technique for keeping moisture out of joints between the walls and floors.

Lastly, for this job, we used painters tape to create our frame work for the application of our Vinyl Chip System.

For additional details and a more in-depth look at our application technique, check out this article: Domino Color Installation in a Large Garage. We like to provide in-depth material and provide insight into our application techniques.

We do all of this so you can see that we are truly experts who know how to prep, install and care for your Residential & Commercial floors!

Our Installation Techniques

Our Ability to Customize Colors

One great benefit of 1 Day Coatings is our ability to customize your Color Options! Because our product is based on a Vinyl Chip Flake system, we can select any color of chip flakes to create a look that is perfect for your home or office.

This is an amazing feature that our clients love and often use. If there is a local high school team, collegiate sport or even business colors that you want to show off – no problem. We can create the perfect blend of colors for your home or office setting to show off your unending pride!

The Benefits of 1 Day Coatings: Commercial Settings

We touched on a few of these points above, but we want to provide a quick recap of the benefits of 1 Day Coatings. For starters, Residential floors are often the treading ground of family, children and pets. Protecting your residential floors can often be tough but our teams utilize our product to keep your floors looking brilliant for years to come!

Commercial settings are just as rigorous and often place increased demand on your floors that you might not think about. For starters, offices and commercial spaces often have heavy equipment or machinery that gets moved and easily scuffs wood floors. Secondly, these commercial settings have heavy foot traffic that often results in some type of spill or abrasive abuse. Wouldn’t you like to have a floor system that is tough against all of this abuse and looks great for years to come?

Regardless of whether your floors are Residential or Commercial, our 1 Day Coatings product provides amazing benefits including:

  • Four times stronger than Epoxy floors
  • Will NOT Chip or Peel
  • True 1 Day Installation Time Frame
  • Easy to Keep Clean
  • 100% Antimicrobial & 100% Antibacterial
  • Customizable Colors
