Expansion joints and saw cuts make great seams for starting and stopping your coating when completing the area in sections, allowing the material to sink into the gap and have an effortless transition. For those who don’t have expansion joints or saw cuts, a high-quality painters masking tape can do the trick. Simply find the area that you’d like to put your seam, run a tape line down on your floor a pull the tape when the side is complete. When using this method, we do recommend overlapping your coating to create a more seamless finish to your floor.
A few things to keep in mind if you decide to coat your space in sections; some finishes are harder to keep consistent when applying sections at a time like the metallic and certain flake broadcasts and its best to order all the material for your job at once to keep your material batch the same.
So whether you’re limited on time between all the holiday bustle, trying to figure out where to store your summer toys, or worried about closing during your busy season coating in sections can be your key to creating the atmosphere you desire without the ability to complete your coating project all at once.
