Epoxy flooring is becoming more popular for use in garages and commercial spaces, however there are many other popular applications. Here are 3 main things you should know before choosing epoxy, along with a few of the benefits!
1. Epoxy Flooring vs. Concrete
Epoxy flooring is commonly used in garages, and there are a few reason why someone might prefer epoxy over bare concrete. The first reason is that epoxy flooring is non-porous, and will not absorb liquids such as oils and gasoline. This means that you will never need to worry about spilling something on your garage floor that won’t come out.
Concrete garage floors are prone to cracking and chipping with weather changes, and repairs can be costly. Choosing an epoxy coating for your fresh concrete will protect it from cracks, chips, and will add some personality to your home.
2. Commercial Applications
Epoxy is not just for garage flooring, in fact it is a very popular choice for many commercial applications. One of the main reasons for this is that epoxy flooring is very easy to maintain. It never cracks, chips, dulls, or fades. It is also one of the few flooring materials that is unlikely to need replacement within 10 years of initial installation.
Not only is it a highly durable material, it also has many options for design! Epoxy is a popular choice for many storefronts, as it provides a unique appearance that helps form the overall theme of the store. From glittering metallics to simple solid colours, anything is possible!
