Learn what epoxy flooring is, the process, and the benefits of having a professional application to your home or business
Epoxy flooring is gaining popularity these days. People are getting rid of carpets and no longer installing high-maintenance wood flooring. They’re turning to concrete floors.
And while concrete sounds pretty boring, you can actually get creative with the design. In this article, you’ll learn all about this latest trend and what benefits epoxy can provide.
Epoxy is a coating compound consisting of two distinct elements: an epoxy resin and a polyamine hardener. When mixed, the resin and hardener engage in a chemical reaction that creates cross-linking of the elements as it cures. When the epoxy coating is fully cured, the resulting product is a durable, rigid plastic coating with numerous desirable mechanical properties.
Once a concrete floor has been smoothed and prepped, a resin and a hardening chemical are mixed. Two coats are applied to the floor. The process, depending on the size of the project, takes a few days to prep, coat, and cure. You’ll have customized, amazing floors in no time.
There are several reasons epoxy floors are a popular choice for homes, garages, and businesses alike.
Epoxy floors are more affordable than many types of flooring. Their durability makes them the best bang for your buck as they tend to outlast other types of flooring (lasting decades). And low-maintenance assures that you won’t have to replace or repair anything compared to other floor types. Because they come in various colors, you don’t have to sacrifice beauty for budget.
This liquid-to-solid process gives epoxy flooring the ability to be strong, stain-resistant, and scratch-resistant. Its most popular uses are in hospitals, schools, garages, and industrial environments. But it can be just as useful for residential living rooms, kitchens, or other rooms in your home. Think of epoxy flooring and kid- and pet-proof!
Because of their durability, epoxy floors are essentially low-maintenance. Typical sweeping and mopping are all that’s really needed to maintain your beautiful new floor. You’ll save money in the long run by not having to replace or repair epoxy coatings for decades.
