I'm new here and wanted to get some expert advice.
I plan on laying down some new epoxy flooring and have been doing some research.
I've gotten heaps of quotes and have narrowed it down to three companies -
My questions is, how would you narrow down to the best one?
Appreciate any help.

Hi Pete, its been a while since your post but I've just seen it so here's my 2 bob.
1. Who is going to give you the best indication of the results you can expect from their work? Have any of them looked at all the flooring area to ascertain the degree of preparation work involved? e.g crack repair, floor levelling and patching requirements. Are you using a clear or opaque epoxy? if using clear then you will see all the repair work (if any) in the finish. Very unsightly and not recommended.
2. Epoxies ain't epoxies Make sure that the epoxy being used is suitable to the environment to which you intend to use it in. Most epoxies are not uv resistant and will yellow over time, They also scratch easy. If possible ask for a small sample board so that you can do your own testing to satisfy yourself and deem the product suitable for the intended application. Stain and scratch test.
That's my 2 bob
