When considering flooring options for your home or business, you should consider epoxy flooring for a durable, easy to clean option that is both long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing. However, you may be wondering about some of the common myths and misconceptions about epoxy flooring that you may have heard or read about, and you may be asking yourself, “Is epoxy flooring worth it?”. Below we’re going to go over some of the common myths and misconceptions about epoxy flooring and why for epoxy flooring in Orlando, DreamCrete Custom Creations is the best choice due to their high quality, professionalism, and fair pricing.
Epoxy Flooring Needs to Be Redone Every Couple of Years
With the right materials and preparation, epoxy flooring has an average life expectancy of about 10-15 years when properly installed by a professional. DreamCrete Custom Creation’s metallic epoxy floors have the longest lifespan on the market due to their resilience and ability to withstand heavy weights and constant traffic.
Epoxy Flooring Can Be Installed DIY
It is possible to install epoxy flooring yourself. However, if you choose to do that, you will most likely be sacrificing the quality and appearance that comes with a professional installation. DIY installation usually means that your epoxy flooring will have a shorter lifespan and less durability due to a higher probability of mistakes, incorrect installation, and improper materials.
Epoxy Flooring is the Same as Simply Painting the Floor
Paint is not nearly as durable or protective as epoxy and chips easily. Epoxy provides a protective coating from cracks, moisture, and stains to the concrete underneath, while paint does not contain the hardener or resin needed for this purpose. Epoxy is also chemical resistant, while paint is not.
Concrete Only Needs a Light Cleaning Before Installation
If the concrete is not prepared appropriately, the epoxy coating will not adhere properly and will not last as long as it would have if the concrete was correctly prepared by a professional installer.
Epoxy is Slippery and Dangerous
Epoxy flooring is slippery when wet, but this is easily resolved by simply adding texture to your flooring. DreamCrete’s metallic epoxy flooring provides a level of safety by reflecting light efficiently, increasing visibility, and is also skid resistant.
There Aren’t Many Options for Design or Patterns
DreamCrete Custom Creations provides various colors and patterns to suit any space or design taste, leaving you with a beautiful, smooth finish.
