Epoxy flooring is one of the most appealing finishes you can have for your floor. It creates a smooth and shiny surface that adds personality to any space. Not only that, it is one of the most durable materials that work for both homes and commercial properties.
However, there are several considerations you need to make before deciding on going for floor epoxy. It can help you decide on whether you’d want to pursue installation.
1. Epoxy Flooring Is Easy To Clean and Maintain
Due to epoxy’s durability, it’s very tough against cracks or chip damage. It will keep its luster and look stunning even when you have to move heavy objects against it. However, there are several things you need to be wary of to maintain your epoxy flooring:
- Accumulated dirt
- Rust stains
- Car chemicals
- Soap cleaners
These can all affect the look of your epoxy if you leave them too long without cleaning. Avoid using soap water and keep your vacuums at hand. Sweep, vacuum, and mop the floor with warm water to remove any build-up.
2. It Is Waterproof, Making It Ideal For Kitchens and Bathrooms
Epoxy flooring is waterproof, making it ideal for places that encounter a lot of water. The extra cost you spend on it will save you a lot of money from constant floor repairs. Because of the tightness of the structure of epoxy, it does not allow moisture and water to pass through it.
Epoxy flooring is the perfect way to bring life and individuality to homes. The variety of colors and metallic pigments allow you to select one that appeals to your taste. Metallic pigments are exclusive – they do not show up on any other color but provides a more subtle touch of class with how it reflects light in different directions
3. We Can Install Epoxy on Concrete or a Wood Subfloor
You can apply epoxy to any surface, though there are ways to treat the flooring to help it stick better. For example, we can sand a wood subfloor and fix gaps to avoid any complications. Some epoxy can even hide damage from the lower surface. Concrete is also one of the most common materials that work best with epoxy.
4. Costs Vary Depending on the Size of Your Home and the Epoxy Type You Choose
Pricing for epoxy flooring installation depends on several factors. Here are some things that can drive the price up:
- Floor area
- Condition of existing flooring
- Need for waterproofing or resurfacing
- Anti-moisture primer
- Your epoxy flooring selection (topcoat)
If the installation is for a floor that is under heavy use, then it might be better to consider epoxy that can tolerate more wear from heavy traffic. You can also opt for unique design combinations and stains if you want a more decorative finish.
5. Epoxy Emits Strong Fumes During Curing, Which Is Why Ventilation Is Necessary
Epoxy is a hazardous material and can emit toxic fumes during the curing process. Safety equipment and ventilation are essential to keep everyone safe. Do not attempt to try and stay inside a room that still has epoxy curing. Our team members always wear safety gear when installing epoxy.
