Flooring Project Specifications

2100 square feet of flooring. Used two coats of Supercoat breathable epoxy in Sandstone. A custom blend of various sized chips were then broadcast over second coat. Finally, the system was finished with a non slip, easy to clean top coat of waterborne urethane loaded with a very fine aggregate matched to the qualities of the top coat.

From Brown Dog Lodge in Memphis Tn, Chip Brown writes in Feb '08:


I just wanted to follow-up with you and say thanks for all your help on my new flooring. The Supercoat kit was very easy to apply once the existing concrete was properly prepared.

The finish is exactly what I had in mind for color, consistancy and non-slippery when wet. It is also very durable.

We have dogs playing on it all day and clean it with a pressure washer; no problems for the coating.

Anyway, I am very pleased with the product and can't thank you enough for your guidance and patience answering my many questions.

I will recommend you whenever possible. In the meantime, feel free to refer your customers to me if they have any questions about the flooring or your services.

Attached are a few pictures of the finished product. You can also see the flooring on our webcams at

Take care. Best Regards.
