Why is epoxy flooring better than traditional concrete flooring
As a supplier of both traditional concrete flooring systems such as polished concrete and an installer of epoxy flooring systems, we have no bias against either flooring system. That being said, epoxy flooring has a major edge on durability and customization. Even though polished concrete receives a hardener before the grinding process, epoxy flooring outperforms concrete flooring in terms of weight tolerance and even overall protection with a staggering allowance of over 25,000 PSI when professionally installed. While you are able to stain traditional concrete, there is so much more you can do with epoxy with options including multi-colored or mono-colored flakes, metallic pigments and even the ability to place logos in the epoxy flooring system.

Are epoxy floors slippery?
The common misconception about epoxy flooring is that they are slippery and unsafe. This, however, is completely untrue! The belief that epoxy is slippery derives from its seamless and glossy finish that gives the epoxy a glass-like appearance. But what is actually the case is the materials used in epoxy provide ample amounts of grip. When stock epoxy is exposed to moisture, it may become slippery but unlike other flooring systems, epoxy has a solution for this safety hazard. With an additive reminiscent of silica sand that we broadcast during the final hours of curing can give the epoxy traction even when the flooring is wet or heavily soiled.
What is the maintenance like for an epoxy floor?
What homeowners and business owners alike love about epoxy floors is the simple and routine maintenance that doesn’t take ages to perform. This mainly comes from the fact that epoxy flooring doesn’t require any messy and expensive waxes or polishes to maintain its unique shine. All you need to do to maintain your epoxy is to use a soft bristle broom or dust mop to remove all foreign materials from the epoxy and follow it up by using a standard wet mop to finish it off. For areas such as garages and some commercial facilities, you can even use a standard hose to wash down your epoxy floor covering!
Are epoxy floors good for commercial settings?
Commercial epoxy flooring is one of the commercial industries leading flooring systems and has been one of the most used flooring systems in the commercial setting since 1927 in the marine and industrial industry. The use of epoxy in the commercial realm has greatly increased since the USDA approved the flooring system for use in sensitive facilities that handle the processing of food and even in sterile facilities such as hospitals and hospice care centers. Not only is commercial epoxy extremely hygienic, but it is also one of the most durable flooring systems on the market as it can withstand damage from dropped objects, heavy foot/ vehicle traffic and even a heavy resistance to many chemicals.
Are epoxy floors good for residential settings?
If we take a look back only ten years we would see that epoxy flooring was only being used in commercial and industrial facilities with the only residential epoxy being used in garages. If we fast forward to today, not only is epoxy the leading garage floor coating in the nation, it is also being used in the process known as basement waterproofing for the supertight bond the epoxy forms with the concrete. But these are not the only areas that epoxy is becoming popular in. Epoxy flooring systems are beginning to be placed in many major living areas such as living rooms and even bedrooms for the easy maintenance and jaw-dropping appearance of custom epoxies and metallic epoxy flooring.
