I found Chris very attentive, responsive, and easy to work with. Chris and his co-worker Jerry were very timely, efficient, and worked hard. They took my nasty old garage floor and made it look better than new. They ground off a layer of the old concrete in my entire garage and treated the areas that needed extra attention like salt pock marks and cracks. They then applied the plastic flakes I had chosen, sanded the floor again, and then applied the epoxy finish. This was done over a three day period. During the process, Chris provided me with ideas and advice for maintaining my new floor and improving other concrete areas of my home. I am very happy with and proud of my new floor. I would highly recommend Rath Epoxy Floors.away on vacation.

Chris and his crew did a great job from start to finish. Really happy with the communication before, during, and after the job was complete.There’s nothing the Sweeney’s can’t do.

Chris performed an incredible job on our old, pitted garage floor. He is an expert on all the tricks and tools of the trade. He transformed an ugly, disgusting eyesore into a gleaming masterpiece!!! Hire him!

Chris was prompt and got right to work. The floor looks beautiful, my husband and I love it.

We are so happy with our new garage floors. The previous owners painted the floors and they were chipping horribly. Chris and his team came in and put in the work to ensure the floors will hold up. The finish product also looks amazing!

Chris was GREAT. 100% honest, reliable, friendly, commutative, and professional. Also, our new floor looks fantastic. Highly recommend.

Communication was great, work was performed exactly as proposed, and the finished result is beautiful! We had a slight issue with bubbles that required a return trip, sanding and re-coating of some areas. Chris returned within 24 hours of learning we were concerned about this and made the necessary repairs. We could not be happier with the experience of working with Chris. This is not the least expensive option for finishing cement basement floors, but if you are considering epoxy, Chris Rath will do a wonderful job!

Chris and Jack did an excellent job installing the epoxy coating over my garage floor. The process was very clean, was done over a weekend and looks great.

We got a beautiful epoxy floor from Chris Rath put into our basement. It became my favorite room in the house. The details, quality, consistency, shine — all of it is amazing. I give my highest recommendation to Chris and his company.

Service was excellence.

Chris and his team were amazing. Chris provided prompt communication through the whole process, including follow up after the work was complete to check in. The work took two days. Chris himself was at the work site the entire time. The team was professional and punctual. The work site was very neat and clean. There was definitely a smell with the epoxy, but I would not call it overwhelming and keeping our windows open for a day cleared it right up. It was very similar to the smell of newly painted walls. We really could not be happier with the work! Our basement is clean, bright and the cracks in the floors are gone.

Chris and his crew did an amazing job on our epoxy floor. They were incredibly accommodating with their time, and resources. They were extremely professional and friendly and I would recommend them to any of our friends or family. Chris is an outstanding guy, I don’t think any review I could give would do justice to his character or his quality of work. He treats his clients and his workers with the utmost respect and you can see the pride he has in his work, as if it were for his own home or project. He instills this character into his boys as well. I highly recommend Chris and his staff for any project you may have.

Just wanted to thank Chris for the amazing job he did on our garage floor. Chris and his assistant were, very professional, easy to work with, and answered all the questions we had. It was so nice to work with someone who knew a lot about their product. We would definitely recommend Chris to anyone who is considering an epoxy floor. The Zimmerman’s Waunakee

Very well! I love my floor. So easy to keep clean. Quality work. Very professional people to work with. They take pride in their work and were very good at explaining the process. They know what they are doing. I would definitely recommend them !!

This was the second garage floor Chris Rath has done for me. Chris is a perfectionist who personally oversees every aspect of floor preparation and coating installation. He uses only high quality materials which ensure durability. His services are not inexpensive, but the quality and professional look he delivers is worth it. The before-and-after photos on his website are trustworthy, from my experience.
— 06/28/2017 – TERRY RETTKE
Great. Clear communication and expectation setting. High quality, integrity, and a beautiful result.

Chris did an excellent job installing epoxy flooring in our basement rec room. He gave us a quote within one day after we provided the square footage of the room and a few pictures. He provided us pictures of other epoxy floors and color/chip samples. Once we booked a date, he followed up with us a few days before that date to let us know when he would be arriving. He completed the job on the weekend (2 days to complete) which worked well as both my husband and I work during the week. Chris was extremely courteous and polite and wonderful to work with. He followed up with us a couple times for the week after installation to ensure the flooring was drying correctly and was to our standards. I would definitely recommend Rath Epoxy Flooring (also known as Concrete Ideas LLC) and would gladly be a reference.

Chris, the owner, explained everything about the application process thoroughly and how to maintain the floor after the epoxy application. We needed to arrange for the installation long distance since we were moving from out of state to the area. He was very prompt in responding to our calls and flexible with coordination with our schedule for the installation since we were traveling in for just a few days. He and his crew and his wife, were very professional and courteous, they were on time and very conscientious. He left the garage and our driveway spotless. He even went the extra step of following up with us a week later to make sure everything was okay and to our satisfactions. We explained that we had not seen the floor since it dried because we had to return to Chicago before it dried. He was nice enough to go out of his way to go by our home to check on the floor and send us pictures. We would highly recommend Rath Epoxy Flooring to anyone.

Very well. Chris was very informative, efficient and professional. He answered all questions thoroughly before, during and after completing the project. He even called a couple of days after the project was completed to ensure my satisfaction and to see if I had any additional questions or concerns. He, without a request, supplied pictures at different stages of a project(s) he had previously completed prior to being selected to do the job. I would recommend him in a minute.
— 10/31/2016 – Pete Price
Excellent. Chris was great to work with. Very professional, prompt, trustworthy and stands by his product. He treated this project like if it were his own. I couldn’t be happier with the results and working with Chris. It was a real pleasure to business with him.
— 10/27/2016 – Nancy Wehinger
Outstanding. From the first time I contacted Chris and throughout the process Chris was a real professional. Communication was fantastic and the final product exceeded all expectations. Cost was very competitive and reasonable. Highly recommended.

We scheduled this application a week prior and ended up the day of the big snowstorm last Monday. Chris communicated on Sunday about how the storm may effect his timing and decided to come early and got most of it done before the main storm. Chris and his son Frankie did a great job. Because of house layout and being winter, they had to enter though our house and “paint” their way into out home entrance way. They did a good job covering and protecting our home floor services and cleanup afterwards. It was a two day job and it turned our beautiful... I hate to drive on it! I thought about doing this project myself but after watching what all was involved and how well they did it, I am glad I did not. I plan on using part of this space for a workshop.
— 01/04/2016 – David Hintzsche
Went superbly. Chris Rath is a good man and a great craftsman. His attention to detail, responsiveness, willingness to explain the process and the end product warrant all to consider this guy. My garage floor looks like showroom. A “Man Space’ dream!

I was very pleased to work with Chris in late July, to have him install a new blue-hued epoxy floor in my 2-stall garage. He and his crew arrived on time for the 3 days they prepped, put on epoxy, then sealed the floor. I’ve had so many great compliments on it—especially at my recent garage sale!! I probably gave his company name with endorsement to a half dozen garage sale customers. One of them even remarked that my garage looked like a bedroom, it looked that good!!
The floor looked so great I ended-up painting the walls of the garage, just to enhance the overall look. Am planning to put my house on the market next month and this garage floor make-over will make the property sell even more quickly.
Also, I did shop around with other Madison-area epoxy floor companies, and Chris’ bid was very competitive, saving me about one thousand dollars!

We were very pleased with the job. The transformation was amazing! Chris informed us of our options, provided a bid and moved forward promptly with the work once I accepted. He was kind, patient with all of our questions, prompt and professional. He went above and beyond to make sure the that job was done in the most excellent fashion, attending to every detail along the way. I will call on Chris to cover our laundry room floor, and I would recommend him very highly to anyone.

Chris & his helpers did an outstanding job. Chris is a true perfectionist. He was very patient with my constant watching & asking questions. I figured the project was going to produce a ton of dust but it was remarkably dust free. We’ve seen many epoxy floors done with DIY kits & some look ok at best. our floor was clearly done by a professional & everyone who sees it comments. We’ve already given Chris’s # to a couple people. Thanks Chris - we’re very happy.

Reapplied a new epoxy surface on our existing epoxy floor. Chris was very helpful offering suggestions and ideas. Chris and his son performed the work, and were very timely, maintained a clean environment, and a pleasure to work with. Definitely recommend them to anyone looking for the services they provide.
— 05/07/2015 – John Vincent
Chris was courteous and came on time. He showed me options I had not
considered, pointed me to a floor design website and lent me a book of
small samples. He was responsive to my questions and submitted a fair
bid. He waited patiently as I considered all my options over several weeks.
I didn’t choose to accept this bid because because my chosen
contractor was able to bundle the floor finishing with some other work
and start sooner.
— 05/09/2013 – Barbara Bickford
Chris was very interested in working with us. Immediately he was willing to travel a good distance to our house to give us an estimate. At my suggestion, we did most of our communication by phone and email (with photos attachments) and he sent us samples of the finished product - and even sent us packets of the flecks used between the epoxy coatings. He was very professional and responsive. We learned a lot about epxoy floors from Chris. He is very experienced and had a lot of good questions to understand our situation and desired outcome. We ended up using another company to install the flooring only because we contacted the other company first and the other company was already listed on Angies List. I’m sure we would have been completely satisfied with Rath Epoxy Floors if we had decided to use them.
