First United Methodist Church of Van Wert, Ohio had a conference room/fellowship hall that needed a makeover. Being in a basement, the room was dark and needed something that would brighten the space, be aesthetically pleasing and also be extremely durable. The church has a food pantry and hosts a number of groups throughout the week along with their normal Sunday activities. Before we could begin work on First United’s floor, our team had to tear through over 6,000 lbs of VCT tile.
Under the tile was an old, worn concrete floor. We prepped the concrete for epoxy and applied a moisture blocking primer. This will prevent the epoxy from peeling over time. After the full epoxy broadcast (chip) system was installed, we finished the floor with a polyurea topcoat. This is a UV stable topcoat that prevents yellowing and makes the floor even stronger. The epoxy floor is slip resistant and very strong. First United also selected to have a vinyl cove baseboard molding installed around the room. The finished space is now ready to withstand all of the foot traffic, tables, chairs and activity that this church sees on a weekly basis, and it looks good to!
