We’ve seen a lot of growth in the local market for epoxy garage floors here in Northern Colorado. They are popular for various reasons. With the growing popularity, comes the inevitable growth of new service providers. Whether it’s someone that recognizes the opportunity and purchases a franchise or has worked for another company and wants to start their own business, there are a few different ways to enter this market.
The reason I’m bringing this up is because when I started Mile High Coatings in 2008, at the very beginning of the Great Recession I only had painting contracting experience from my college years (I ran a successful painting business in the summers while attending Colorado State University). I knew there was more to the industry than just painting. So, I researched, talked to my paint sales reps (who also manufactured lots of epoxy), went to trainings for various products and slowly and methodically grew my business from the ground up.
As we’ve grown to become the local market leader in concrete coatings, I’ve recognized that in order to maintain that position, we have to be creative and offer new and exciting options for our customers. That brings me to the photos below. This is a mica flake garage floor system.
While the coatings themselves are the same as we use in our other systems, the flake (also called “chip”) is real mica, instead of vinyl like normal flakes. The neat thing about mica flake is that they shimmer or give off a unique sparkle. This garage floor, located in the Bucking Horse subdivision in Fort Collins was certainly a fun one to do. The customer, Matt, and his wife were so great to work with! They had recently moved from out of state and their new home is their retirement home and they wanted to have a nice garage floor! They had seen us installing a garage floor for their neighbors and knew they had to have one after seeing it done.
