Epoxy flooring combines form and function, with an amazing array of color and style options that protect even high traffic areas for many years. Though it is more expensive initially than some other options like concrete paint or stain, it more than pays for itself in longevity, as paint or stain requires more frequent maintenance and repairs.
Epoxy can be used in any room in your home, from kitchens and bathrooms to children’s playrooms, basements, and laundry rooms. It can also be used in industrial settings and commercial facilities such as waiting rooms, showrooms, restaurants, galleries, and more.
Self-leveling products make it possible to install epoxy flooring over either new or existing concrete surfaces. The thickness of the epoxy can be customized to meet the specific needs of different facilities. Epoxy coatings are typically at least five times thicker than the average coat of paint, and up to seven times stronger than concrete.
Once upon a time epoxy floors did not have many variations for different applications and were not a desirable flooring option for many. Decades ago it was an overpriced flooring solution that was only used in a few high-end garages and in industrial or commercial settings. New innovations in the field of epoxy in the past few years have made it one of the most used flooring systems on the market, however.
Color and metallic additives along with unique professional application techniques have not only made residential epoxy flooring more affordable, but available in an incredible variety of looks. Residential epoxy flooring can be made to mimic everything from flowing water to high-end marble. It can simply be a clear, high gloss protective coating for concrete that increases its PSI tolerance from 3,500 to 15,000, or it can be an interior floor that looks like walking on clouds and is a breeze to keep clean.
The installation technique is what determines the final look of residential epoxy flooring and is a critical part of attaining the desired aesthetic.
