What Are the Benefits of Epoxy Flooring?
There are many advantages of epoxy flooring for your Sarnia home. The first is a wide array of design choices as seen on our epoxy projects page. Along with the standard glossy sheen, epoxy flooring surfaces come in a wide range of fleck finishes and have limitless artistic designs. Metallic epoxy floors exist, but so do glitter, decorative chips, and floors that look like the ocean. This versatility makes epoxy flooring a popular option for residential projects.
If you are looking into concrete coatings for your basement floor, you will not find a more durable floor than epoxy. A solid epoxy floor can last 30–40 years, depending on heavy traffic and general use. But adding a coating to make a polished concrete surface makes for a beautiful epoxy floor that will last a lifetime.
But we would be remiss if we did not address the downsides of epoxy flooring as well. The first is that it can take some time to solidify (“cure”)—sometimes up to 4 days. The epoxy coating needs a solid foundation; it is tough but not flexible. Be sure to ask your flooring contractor about the best type of flooring for your home.
What Is a Residential Epoxy Contractor?
A residential epoxy contractor is a professional who installs epoxy floors in homes. Canadian Concrete Surfaces Inc also handles both commercial epoxy coatings and industrial polished concrete if you ever need our services for larger jobs. But since this is about installing an epoxy floor in your house, some readers are probably wondering if they can do it themselves.
While you can install an epoxy floor yourself, it is important to understand the risks, hazards and what can go wrong. First, it is best to have a very smooth concrete flooring beneath the epoxy coat; don’t try and coat epoxy on rough concrete. You will not be happy with the finish. More than half of our job is leveling and polishing the concrete slab, even before we being pouring epoxy on top of the floor.
The application process may also take a few hours, if not days. During that time, your beautiful floor will be emitting some fumes, so it pays to have someone with the right ventilation equipment do the job to keep your family safe. Epoxy can also be tricky to work with, its think and when it comes to applying and spreading the resin evenly, it takes years of experience.
