Add a Wow Factor to Your Residential Space with Epoxy Flooring
Epoxy floors have long been the flooring of choice for warehouses, hospitals and garage floors, but they are becoming an increasingly popular option for private residences, too. Epoxy can be used with concrete flooring, tile, Formica, wood flooring, marble, laminate, vinyl, linoleum, MDF, plywood and nearly any other flooring material, making it one of the most versatile flooring solutions available today. As a flooring material, epoxy really does have it all!
The Benefits of Epoxy Floors for Residences
Floor trends come and go, but epoxy offers a timeless beauty that can match your home with virtually endless color and design choices. Other benefits include:
- Remarkable durability and heat resistance up to 500 degrees
- Antimicrobial properties
- Stain resistance and ease of cleaning
- UV resistance and reduced likelihood of staining or yellowing
- Minimal installation time, reducing downtime for you
- Low maintenance cleaning
- Chemical resistance
- Safe and slip-resistant
- Bright, high-gloss surface for better overall lighting
Epoxy flooring is even environmentally friendly, with no solvents and zero VOC, which means there is no need to wear a respirator or take steps to ventilate the area before, during or after applying the coating. Once it’s applied, the floor will be rock hard, non-porous and completely seamless, eliminating grout lines and joints where unsanitary bacteria, yeast and other microorganisms can grow.
Epoxy Floor Choices
You can choose from a wide range of colors, styles and types of floors for residences. However, there are three basic types: solid, metallic and epoxy chip. Solid epoxy is often used to achieve a lustrous, high-gloss finish. Metallic epoxy systems incorporate metallic pigments to achieve brilliant color variations and high shines and an incredible aesthetic and long lifespan. They’re often chosen to mimic the look of marble, granite, stone or even water. Epoxy chip floors incorporate flakes for a terrazzo-like effect.
Setting a Whole New Trend
When it comes to our homes, prefabricated flooring such as tile, tongue-in-groove wood flooring, linoleum and carpeting has long reigned supreme. Epoxy flooring offers another alternative. Unlike conventional prefab flooring, epoxy is a long-lasting solution that can provide homeowners with decades of service under normal use conditions. Epoxy can free you from chasing trends and, instead, offers you a chance to invest in the long-term beauty and quality of your home. The time and money you save can be invested in other projects.
