Whether you are planning to have an epoxy flake floor installed at home, or for one or more parts of your business premises, the temptation could be that to save yourself some money, you try to install it yourself. There could be many DIY projects that you have completed successfully in the past, and therefore, are confident this will be the same.
Whilst it is not for us to doubt in any way your past record, nor your DIY skills, we would ask you to pause for a moment and think about what it takes to install an epoxy flake floor.
