The Smith & Company Flooring team worked with Archery Summit Winery in Dundee, Oregon on a variety of projects recently. We just completed redoing the floor in the new Members Lounge area. In five days, we prepped and installed an epoxy floor coating to withstand every accidental wine spill.
Luckily, the substrate was already in decent condition, which usually leads to a smoother job. There was an old epoxy floor coating that was stained and discolored, but we were able to just cover it.
There was one major challenge with this particular floor, though. The old epoxy had a sanded finish and we had to be extremely careful not to grind it smooth. The team had to figure out how to properly prep the floor and scuff it just enough for the new epoxy floor coating to stick without completely smoothing out the previous finish. The solution was to use a special grinder to find the happy medium.
We used a 100% solid two-component epoxy as a base on the winery floor. This was followed-up with a top coat of Ultra High Solids two-component polyurethane in Silver Grey. The polyurethane was chosen because it’s the most stain-resistant coating option available. We always take the client’s needs into consideration and some of Archery Summit Winery’s delicious Pinot might find it’s way to the floor. Their new floor is definitely stronger than any potential wine spills.
