I met Fernando Franco (@garageandbeyond) on Twitter a few years ago, and I was fascinated by a product that he was installing called Metallic Epoxy. I had never heard of it at the time, but I was amazed at the look Fernando could achieve with an epoxy coating.
At the time, the only decorative epoxy floors that we were offering were the seamless vinyl chip epoxy floors, and quartz floors. When I first saw a photo of one of Fernando’s metallic epoxy floors, I knew that it was a product that I wanted to offer.
Two years later, we are regularly installing metallic epoxy in Virginia. I just wanted to take the time to give Fernando credit for introducing us to a decorative epoxy product that we believe will grow to be one of our most requested concrete flooring products for basement and garage floors.
One of the most appealing aspects of metallic epoxy is that it comes it almost any color. We receive request all the time for a gray or light colored stained concrete floor, but typical acid stains only come in dark earth tone colors. Now, with metallic epoxy, we are able to provide a marbled floor in dark earth tones and bright colors.
