What To Consider if You Are Thinking of Installing an Epoxy Floor

The Allure of Epoxy Floors-Why People are Drawn to Them

Epoxy floors have surged in popularity for homeowners, especially for areas like garages, basements, and workshops. Their durability, resilience, and aesthetic appeal make them a top choice for those looking to upgrade their floors. Unlike traditional flooring options, epoxy floors offer a seamless finish that is easy to maintain, resistant to spills, and customizable to fit any design aesthetic.

Designer Metallic Epoxy Systems: Beyond the Surface

Our Designer Metallic Epoxy Systems offer an artistic flooring solution that transcends traditional aesthetics. These systems incorporate metallic pigments that create an illusion of depth and movement, making each floor a unique piece of art. Ideal for creating a focal point in any room, these systems can mimic natural phenomena such as flowing water, cloud-filled skies, or the rich marbling of stone. The process involves layering colors and techniques to achieve an effect that's both visually striking and deeply personal.

Flake Floor Epoxy Systems: Durable Beauty

The Flake Floor Epoxy Systems provide not only an attractive finish but also an added layer of durability and slip resistance. By broadcasting flakes over the base coat and sealing them under a clear topcoat, these systems offer a texture that is both pleasing to the eye and practical underfoot. Available in a variety of colors and sizes, the flakes can be custom-blended to match any décor, making this system as versatile as it is durable.

Why Epoxy Floors Fail

To ensure the success of your epoxy floor installation, it's essential to understand why some epoxy floors fail. The top reasons include improper surface preparation, moisture issues, and using inferior quality products. Surface preparation is crucial; the concrete must be clean, dry, and properly profiled to ensure the epoxy adheres correctly. Moisture can also be a significant issue, as it can prevent the epoxy from bonding to the concrete or cause it to delaminate over time. Moisture present in the concrete can derail an epoxy flooring project before it even begins. Moisture in concrete can significantly impact the success of an epoxy floor. Excessive moisture can prevent the epoxy from bonding correctly or cause it to delaminate over time. Understanding how to test for moisture and address any issues is crucial for a successful installation. Talk to an Epoxy Plus representative for ways you can test before you begin your project. It's not a deal breaker, you just might need to use a special moisture vapor barrier primer instead.
