Epoxy flooring has been making a big move recently from exclusively commercial and industrial applications to being a fantastic choice for many residential uses. Residential work spaces are better served by modern epoxy than traditional concrete flooring. Epoxy offers superior appearance, durability, and overall finish for many home work space applications.
We often think of traditional concrete flooring as being a solid and impenetrable slab. However, the reality is that concrete is quite porous and absorbs water, oils, grease, and other types of liquids that stain and weaken flooring and subsurfaces. In addition to the liquids that it soaks up, traditional concrete can become quite brittle under many environmental conditions. Even when it is relatively new, concrete can be chipped, cracked, and broken by even light stresses. Modern epoxies work to seal your interior concrete surfaces from liquid intrusion. Rather than soaking up moisture and grime, epoxy surfaces can be simply cleaned without allowing any internal damage or staining. Epoxy also adds a strengthening topcoat surface to concrete, protecting flooring from damage through typical uses.
Like interior paint, modern epoxy is available in a fantastic variety of colors and finishes. No matter what color design scheme you have in mind for your garage or other inside work spaces, we will be able to work with you to develop a flooring plan that will match your creative choices.
Epoxy finishes are particularly easy to keep clean, and they maintain their outstanding fit and finish over time. Epoxy provides a long life of showroom quality gleam and cleanliness to your garage and other home work space surfaces. Epoxy surfaces allow easy maintenance of spotlessly clean flooring that not only looks great but also helps you maintain a pest-free and healthy work space anywhere in your home.
Modern epoxy flooring is environmentally friendly, as it is designed and manufactured with solvent-free chemicals and is free from dangerous, volatile organic compounds
(VOCs). Epoxy flooring can also reduce energy costs as it is typically at least three times as reflective as ordinary concrete, improving both interior lighting and heating efficiency.
Epoxy flooring is also safer and more comfortable than traditional concrete flooring. Epoxy is laid in place as a single continuous surface without the grout lines and crevices found in concrete that attracts debris and creates a tripping hazard. Epoxy is a naturally more pliable surface than concrete and provides comfort and cushion that concrete cannot compete with. For long periods of standing while working, epoxy places much less strain on your feet and lower body joints. Epoxy flooring is also available in non-slip finishes, providing a much safer surface than traditional concrete.
