Thanks for visiting our website, I hope you find our work uplifting and inspiring. This is a photo of me perched on a tiny roof in Léogâne, Haiti. Although I was in a 3rd world country, building this home for a poor family who lived under a blue tarp, there were more restrictions on that job than there are with epoxy floors here in Texas. Whatever the reason, there is a severe gap in buyer education and an urgent need for transparency. As a fiduciary and steward to our clients and our industry, I feel a moral obligation to divulge some polarizing information in the FREE to Download Red Flags Checklist below. Allow me to explain...
When you write a check for say, $2,500, you assume the person you're handing it to has the training, tools and know-how to complete the job successfully the first time, right?
This is not always true with epoxy flooring contractors. Why is that? Well, there is a list of reasons.
There is no training and there are no standards.
Most contractors are not trained chemists or materials engineers yet, with a bucket of "paint" and a gallon of acid wash, they've magically become experts. Who needs training on volatile chemicals when you have YouTube?! And I'm all for applied learning, that's how we try out potential team members, but when the clients become the lab rats, applied learning has turned into unethical experimentation.
In a world devoid of oversight and regulation, you might think that epoxying a garage floor is kind of like painting your dining room walls - brush it on, allow it to dry and BOOM, job complete, right?...
Epoxy is more like Crazy Glue. Once you've glued your thumb and index finger together, it's too late to change your mind.
In 2017, when I wrote the award-winning book, Navigating the Maze of Energy Efficiency Projects, my hope was that every homeowner who considered a home improvement project would read it and succeed. Little did I realize that three years later I would be the one navigating a strange new world - the world of residential epoxy flooring. Needless to say, I picked some bad apples.
I've acquired some valuable information which I've chosen to share with you for FREE in the checklist below - we don't even want your email address.
Before you download it, read the "Did You Know" section and take to heart what is it saying - there are no lifeguards on duty. Add in the fact that, most small-time residential contractors operate cash-based businesses, and you have a recipe for abuse.
Epoxy floors, when applied correctly, are not cheap. And in this industry, price shopping is a huge mistake. It adds an insane amount of risk to a solution whose MSRP is difficult to determine (see the checklist for our MSRP recommendation).
And if you think I'm about to sell you on our low-bid solution, think again. We only partner with the leading high-end epoxy flooring company in Austin - the guys who pioneered the industry for the last 18 years. We had to eat a few bad apples to find them but I'll be the first to say, we're grateful we did.
Yes, it's easy to get blinded by the curb appeal, especially once you start looking at color blends. But if you get swept into emotion, you'll lose sight of the risks involved with this specialty trade.
However, when you secure a competent professional, there is tremendous upside. Garage projects (in general) return $.90 cents on the dollar when you sell your home! With proper due diligence fueled by the checklist, you can succeed, even in a risky, unregulated environment.
Download the checklist below. Study it as you screen, vet and validate potential contractors. My hope is that it will empower you to succeed, thwarting the efforts of predatory charlatans.
I wish you smooth sailing on this adventure and I hope your garage becomes the envy of the neighborhood!
