If you have an existing concrete floor that is rough or unlevel, you probably think that fixing it will be a massive undertaking. Fortunately, epoxy flooring can be installed over existing concrete in your home after some preparation work is completed. We can even customize the application to meet the needs of different areas in your building. If you need increased durability, we can apply the epoxy in thicker layers.
Epoxy flooring is up to seven times stronger than concrete. It can withstand everything from chemical spills to vehicles driving and parking on it. Accidental spills won’t result in damage or discoloration for the floor. Additionally, this flooring is nonporous, so it’s more resistant to mold and mildew.
The main reason that epoxy flooring is stronger than concrete flooring is compression strength. Compression strength is the capacity of a material to withstand a constant load, or to resist compression. While standard concrete usually has a compression strength of 4,000-5,000 pounds per square inch, epoxy can reach higher than 10,000 psi easily.
As an added benefit, epoxy is much easier to repair and replace than concrete floors. While damaged concrete could take heavy demolition and re-pouring over a large area, epoxy can be repaired in small patches. Since epoxy applied over existing floors, all that’s needed to repair it is to reapply epoxy over the impacted area.
