Can you install epoxy coating over wood?

This is a very common question we get. And our answer is…Yes! You can certainly install epoxy coating over wood with careful surface preparation.
When we recently received a call from a home owner in Hoboken, NJ asking us how epoxy coating can be installed over wood, we recommended the following process -
a. The wood floor needs to be sanded with a 40/60 grit power floor sander thoroughly so that the gloss is completely removed.
b. Any loose planks that are loose need to be fixed.
c. Lay down a diamond metal lath and pour at least 3/8″ self leveling concrete, Param 5500.
d. Apply self leveling epoxy system (Perdure SLE) over Param 5500.

This project in Hoboken, NJ was successfully executed by a contractor from Englewood, NJ. It took almost 6 – 7 days to complete the project…an area of 1200 square feet.
