Valspar Donates Flooring for Outreach Center

Valspar Flooring donated a Valflake flooring system to refurbish a badly damaged 22- X 60-foot concrete floor in Cityview Christian Center's coffee house/social center in Indianapolis.

Located in a poverty-stricken, inner-city neighborhood in Indianapolis, Cityview Christian Center daily confronts the havoc caused by substance abuse. The center's latest outreach program was the conversion of a space once used as the church garage into a coffee house/social center, which is open on Saturday nights through midnight to serve as an alternative to neighborhood bars. Coffee and snacks are free to the homeless in a safe, non-threatening environment.

Cityview's pastor contacted Greg McGuirk and Erik Van Anglen with Valspar Flooring.

McGuirk and Van Anglen arranged for a Valspar Valflake flooring system to be donated to the center. RV Ministries, a national group of retired building contractors, volunteered to install the floor with specialized assistance from Van Anglen.

To install the Valflake system, Valspar PR-7 Flex Prime epoxy primer was applied to the damaged floor with a trowel to form a tough, flexible film. Next, one coat of a pigmented Valspar EC-3 medium build epoxy resurfacer was applied, filling gaps and leveling the overall surface. Finally, a topcoat of EC-15 UVR epoxy coating/binder was applied.
