Can’t Do This Floor

Epoxy floors were a very big part of my business many years ago. Just commercial ones like food plants, etc. We actually did many different types of resinous floors. MMA, epoxy, urethane cement.

There is a lot of money in those types of floors but the big thing for me was the challenge. They are difficult to do and there is always a limited time frame to complete it. Something always seems to go sideways and the pressure is high and all the plants want there floors done at the same time like Christmas, Thanks Giving. If the plant is going to be shut down, plan on spending your holiday there.

I still do floors from time to time but not like the good old days. I never thought I would see a floor I would pass on until last week.

One of the big oil change companies wanted to grind and epoxy their bays and the oil pit areas.

There was so much oil on those floors it would be impossible to grind deep enough to find a sound, oil free surface. Yuk

There was soo much oil that as I was measuring it out, my tape measure was flinging oil everywhere as it spun back into the housing.

I admit defeat. This was one I had to pass on.
