epoxy floors for low-maintenance and affordable flooring
If you’re tired of dirty, stained concrete in your home or business, then epoxy floors may be right for you. When you apply a coat of epoxy, you won’t have to worry about everyday usage taking its toll on your floors. Unlike other types of flooring, epoxy creates a long-lasting, hard barrier. This coating is ideal for many environments. Whether you own an industrial building or want to waterproof your garage, epoxy may be the way to go.
What is epoxy?
Most people have heard of epoxy, but unless you work with it every day, you may not know exactly what it is. Epoxy is a polymer top coat. When it dries, it hardens to a glasslike finish. It’s typically applied on top of concrete surfaces, such as floors, garages, and workshops. This coating gives concrete a uniform appearance, while also improving its lifespan. Here are a few of the main reasons you should consider applying an epoxy top coat:
It’s very easy to clean an epoxy surface. You’ll only need to sweep and mop on a regular basis to keep your floors looking their best.
Resistant to damage.
Epoxy is very hard. It’s virtually impossible to break epoxy under normal circumstances. Even oil, gas, and chemical spills are no match for this highly resistant top coat. This is one reason epoxy is so popular in automotive settings.
You don’t have to worry about damage to the concrete underneath the epoxy. This material is difficult to penetrate, so it protects the underlying concrete from moisture, cracks, and stains.
Epoxy comes in a wide range of colors. You can choose the hue that best suits the surrounding environment.
Replacing floors is very expensive. But, applying a fresh layer of epoxy is very affordable. Even if you’re on a tight budget, you’ll find epoxy to be cost-efficient.
How to apply epoxy
If you have a concrete floor, you can cover it with an epoxy top coat. Most of the work involves preparing the floor for the top coat. If you don’t clean and degrease the floor, you’ll end up with sloppy, unprofessional results. Always scrub any stubborn stains and fill in any cracks. Finish by pouring an acid solution over the surface.
After you prepare the floor, you’re ready to apply the first layer of epoxy. You’ll need to mix the epoxy solution and evenly apply it to the surface. Take care not to inhale the epoxy. It’s a lung irritant, so you should wear a mask and protective goggles at all times.
Be sure to allow enough time for the epoxy to dry and bond to the underlying concrete. Tape off the area to prevent anyone from walking across the surface while it dries.

I highly recommend this company. They did an amazing job on my upcoming listing. They were also referred to me by another Realtor.
Will (owner) was a pleasure to work with and he is extremely knowledgeable in his craft, he is honest and takes the time to explain the process and what to expect.
Their set up is fantastic, they really take their time masking everything out. The paint lines are perfect and they stained a ton of natural wood, all the cabinets in the house and refinished the tile countertops.
My listing looks so beautiful 😍 they really pay attention to detail and the whole crew was super sweet.
I’ve already booked them for another upcoming listing and will continue to use this company and refer it out to others.
