The 8 Best Types of Epoxy Flooring

October 14, 2022

The eight best types of epoxy flooring: There are seemingly unlimited options when it comes to epoxy flooring for residential and commercial purposes. While it is true that most options would work for most spaces, there are pros and cons to each type of epoxy floor for different kinds of rooms. So without any more delay, let's get into the eight best types of epoxy flooring for the most common residential and commercial areas.

Why Should I Install an Epoxy Floor?

This is the most common question we come across. As Colorado's top-rated epoxy floor installer, we've learned a thing or two over the years about epoxy floors and why you should consider one for your space. Epoxy is a natural sealant that, when cured, creates a nearly indestructible surface, preventing any oil, chemicals, and other contaminants from penetrating. Aside from aesthetics, the biggest perk of an epoxy floor is durability.

But let's take a step back to the aesthetics factor. Many people choose an epoxy floor because it will look much better than their dull, cracking concrete floor. Oh, there's another thing! An epoxy floor will prevent your concrete from further cracking, allowing you to rest easy knowing that your floor will stand the test of time.

What Are the Best Types of Epoxy Flooring?

Now that we've covered why you should consider an epoxy floor for your space, let's dive into the eight best types of epoxy flooring and in which areas they will thrive:

vinyl flake epoxy flooring — Epoxy Colorado

1. Vinyl Flake Epoxy

Flake flooring is a top-tier coating option for Colorado customers who want to improve traction and durability on their garage floor. We add vinyl flakes to a specially prepared tinted polyaspartic base coat to create this one-of-a-kind finish. We then seal the floor with clear, high-solid polyaspartic for a beautiful gloss finish. The resulting floor has all of the benefits of an epoxy floor and is non-slip.

2. Metallic Epoxy

Our metallic epoxy coating gives a brilliant finish to any existing concrete surface. Metallic epoxy is a 100% solid epoxy coating engineered with metallic additives to produce a dynamic color-changing effect. Customers seeking an exceptional finish for their floor will be captivated by how metallic epoxy can dramatically transform any surface.

Metallic epoxy floors are great for residential garages, basements, patios, and even kitchens. We've even installed metallic epoxy floors in commercial spaces like fire stations and schools.

polished concrete flooring — Epoxy Colorado

3. Polished Concrete

Polished concrete is the ideal way to improve your area's resilience and longevity while maintaining concrete's industrial look and feel. Concrete polishing creates a smooth, sealed surface that will eliminate airborne silica dust and resist staining. Many Northern Colorado customers choose to add a polished concrete floor to their kitchens, patios, and garages with a polyaspartic sealant for additional protection from staining. For more information on why polished concrete made it on our list of the best types of epoxy flooring, get in touch with us.

concrete seal — Epoxy Colorado

4. Concrete Seal

The freeze/thaw cycle in Colorado will ruin a decorative concrete finish faster than anything else. Warm temperatures during the day and freezing temperatures at night cause substantial concrete expansion, leading to pop-outs, spalling, and scaling. Pavix penetrating sealer will protect the concrete from moisture and strengthen it to ensure the longevity of the finish.

We recommend adding a concrete seal to your outdoor spaces, such as patios, walkways, backyard firepits, and pools.

polyaspartic flooring — Epoxy Colorado

5. Polyaspartic Flooring

Polyaspartic floors are becoming more popular in Colorado homes. This floor coating has mainly been used in commercial/industrial spaces over the years but has proven to be a great flooring solution in rooms such as garages and basements. But if you want to create a durable and lasting floor for your commercial space, polyaspartic flooring is one of the best types of epoxy flooring for that case.

Polyaspartic floor coatings are more durable and quicker to cure than epoxy floor systems. This is a proper premium solution to your flooring needs. We are some of the few installers of polyaspartic floor coatings in Northern Colorado and Colorado Springs.

urethane cement — Epoxy Colorado

6. Urethane Cement

Labeled our 'bulletproof system,' urethane cement is the only floor coating you will ever need. Trusted in NoCo breweries, commercial kitchens, and warehouses, urethane cement is a high-build system with the highest vapor transmission and hydrostatic pressure tolerance. We can install over concrete, tile, and even plywood. For more information, contact us today to get your free quote.

secondary containment — Epoxy Colorado

7. Secondary Containment

If your Colorado facility requires the use of potentially damaging chemicals, secondary containment systems will often be necessary. We can ensure you meet all compliance criteria with a combination of different epoxy systems and Novolac epoxy. While it might be overkill for residential spaces, if you find yourself dealing with damaging chemicals, this may be the floor for you.

double broadcast quartz floor — Epoxy Colorado

8. Double Broadcast Quartz

A double-broadcast quartz floor is critical if you work in a Northern Colorado facility that requires a high coefficient of friction to avoid slipping and falling. This flooring finish can be combined with several systems, including urethane cement. It can be top-coated with various epoxies or a polyaspartic coating to ensure resistance against caustic chemicals, acids, and bacteria, making it one of the best epoxy flooring solutions for commercial spaces.
