Epoxy flooring is a unique floor material that has steadily grown in popularity. Once a concrete floor has been smoothed and prepped, a resin and a hardening chemical are mixed together. The chemical reaction will turn the mixture into a hard plastic floor over a few days. So the compound is poured onto the concrete and allowed to harden before a second or third layer is applied. This liquid to solid process gives epoxy flooring the ability to be strong, stain resistant, and more. 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 types.
What are the benefits of epoxy flooring?
There are an immense number of benefits to choosing epoxy flooring. The first and foremost one is the price. The materials and installation costs are not very high, making it an easy investment. It’s also stain resistant. So if you were to spill liquids or chemicals, it would be an easy clean. The glossy surface makes messes a little less stressful. That’s why they’re popular for garages and hospitals. But, recently, they’ve become popular for living rooms, because they’re easy to add designs to. Patterns, swirls, and colors make this durable surface into a piece of art.
Epoxy floor coatings are commonly used for commercial and industrial flooring. Epoxy coatings are normally applied over concrete floors to provide a high-performance, smooth, and durable surface that can last many years and withstand heavy loads. Many industrial sites, warehouses, and commercial buildings rely on epoxy floors to maintain clean and safe conditions for workers, equipment, and inventory.

What is concrete polishing?
Similar to epoxy flooring is polished concrete. Polished concrete flooring has the same shine and sleek feel to it, without pouring epoxy on top. It is, however, not as durable, long lasting, or stain resistant as epoxy flooring. If you do choose to go with polished concrete, we can handle it no problem. Concrete floors are rough and have blemishes or divots. Abrasive diamond fragments are used to buff the concrete, so it is free of any imperfections. Then, it is best to seal it to keep it from damaging easily right away. It’s also important to keep polished concrete floors clean and buffed on a regular basis to maintain them properly. You wouldn’t want to go through the trouble of getting your concrete polished and then let it get in disrepair.
