Epoxy Flooring Benefits

If you have a concrete floor, there are many decorative finish options available to you. You can polish the concrete to perfection, add stains, etches, a coating. Epoxy coatings are some of the most popular decorative finish optional available in the market today. When applied correctly, these finishes look great and are quite durable. Here are some of the biggest advantages of epoxy concrete flooring:

1. Affordability

Epoxy is popular because it is relatively affordable. Other decorative finishes like polyurethane coatings, polishing, etching, and stamping, etc, require time, effort, and money. Epoxy is easy to apply and the material itself is quite affordable. You can cover a large area without burning a major hole in your pocket.

2. Performance

This coating might be affordable, but it is not low-quality. Epoxy will last for 3 to 5 years depending on the use and is very resilient. It can be used in high-traffic areas without worry of fading and wear. It also offers some measure of chemical resistance so you can apply it on factory or warehouse floors.

3. Looks

Epoxy coatings are available in a variety of colours and finishes so have several options available to you. You can use more neutral tone colours like brown, grey, white, or black if you want your space to look clean and professional. You can also choose vivid and bright colours like yellow, blue, red, green, etc, if you want unique and fun flooring. These colours are excellent for informal rooms like game rooms, schools, gyms, etc.

4. Safety

Epoxy coatings will also improve the overall safety of the floor. Concrete is already rated high but an epoxy coating adds to it. Epoxy is slip, heat, impact, and heat resistant so it creates a protective layer on your floor. You can improve the brightness and visibility of your room with high-gloss epoxy coatings. This material is also considered eco-friendly so if you want your property to be green, you should consider epoxy coatings on your floor.

5. Easy to Replace

Like all materials, epoxy will wear off eventually and you will need to replace it. Thankfully, this material is easy to remove and won’t damage the floor underneath it in any way.
