Explore the Endless Variety of Epoxy Floor Options

Epoxy is often associated with somewhat sterile-looking commercial and industrial spaces. However, epoxy is anything but boring. That’s because it’s available in a variety of colors, textures, and finishes. You can install a custom-looking floor that is long-lasting and works perfectly with your home’s decor. So, whether you want a clean, finished look for your garage or an eye-catching, rich metallic finish for your basement game room, epoxy can provide you with plenty of options.

High-Performance Epoxy

When it comes to choosing the flooring for your home, most people think of the usual types - carpet, tile, or wood. But what about the flooring in your unfinished areas such as the garage or basement? If you think your only option is bare concrete, think again! Epoxy floor coatings are the perfect solution. They’re extremely durable and long-lasting and are resistant to scuffs, scratches, stains, and moisture. Even in areas where you would never think to put traditional flooring, consider epoxy!

Epoxy with Vinyl Flake

Some floors see their fair share of moisture. For instance, it’s common to have rain, snow, and even oil tracked across your garage floor. For floors that are susceptible to moisture, consider epoxy flake flooring. Flake flooring starts with a polyaspartic base coat and then vinyl flakes are added to provide superior traction in areas that may become slippery. The floor is then sealed with a clear, high-solids polyaspartic for a beautiful gloss finish. The resulting floor has all of the benefits of an epoxy floor with the additional slip-resistant benefit.

Metallic Epoxy

Metallic epoxy coatings give a brilliant finish to any existing concrete surface. They consist of a solid epoxy coating engineered with metallic additives to produce a dynamic, color-changing effect. The result is a brilliant finish that’s as eye-catching as it is durable. Homeowners looking for a different kind of flooring option that’s both long-lasting and beautiful will be captivated by the way metallic epoxy can dramatically transform any area.

Additional Flooring Options From Epoxy Colorado

Polished concrete

Concrete floors are common in garages and basements, however, they are prone to moisture, stains, and cracking. If you want to increase your floor’s resiliency and longevity while maintaining the industrial look and feel of concrete, you might want to consider having it polished. This process creates a smooth, sealed surface that will eliminate airborne silica dust and resist staining. You can also enhance its look by adding color or choose to add a polyaspartic sealant for additional protection.

Exterior Concrete Seal

Colorado’s fluctuating weather can take its toll on all of your home’s exterior features – including your concrete patio and pathways. The extreme temperature fluctuations paired with frequent freezing and thawing can cause expansion in the concrete, which ultimately leads to popouts, spalling, and scaling. At Epoxy Colorado, we suggest applying a penetrating sealant that will protect your concrete from moisture and strengthen it to ensure its longevity.

Polyaspartic Floor Coatings

Epoxy is a convenient and cost-effective way to add a durable, protective coating to your floor. However, if you’re looking for superior functionality and the added benefits of having a faster drying time and UV protection, you may want to consider a polyaspartic coating.

Polyaspartic is another type of coating system that offers the same and more benefits than epoxy does. It’s also preferred in residential applications because of its low VOC ratings. VOC stands for volatile organic compounds. A low VOC rating means that you and your family won’t be subjected to the strong, chemical smell often associated with other types of floor coatings.

Epoxy is still a good choice for those looking for a slightly more budget-friendly way to enhance and protect floors in high-traffic areas or in areas that get dirty quickly. However, for floors that are subjected to a lot of abuse – such as garage floors – polyaspartic can provide superior protection due to its resistance to staining and discoloring, even in extreme temperatures.

Frequently Asked Questions

Although epoxy floors have been around for quite some time, residential application is still somewhat new. The following is a list of some of the most frequently asked questions we hear from homeowners. If you have another question that was not addressed here, or if you would like to talk with us and get a free estimate, we would love to hear from you.

How Long Does an Epoxy Floor Last?

Epoxy floors are prized for their durability. Even concrete, which you might think is the most durable, will get stained, cracked, and chipped. Epoxy, on the other hand, is resistant to all of these things and made to last for years and even decades. 

There are several factors that go into determining how well an epoxy floor will withstand the test of time. For a standard residential home, an epoxy floor can look great for the full-time you own your home. For high-traffic industrial or commercial areas, the lifespan can be shorter, but it will likely still be longer than most other flooring systems.

Can I Install an Epoxy Floor Myself?

DIY projects can be fun and even save you some money. But, in the case of installing an epoxy floor, trying to do it yourself is not a good idea. First, a professional installer will use a higher grade of materials that are designed to last longer. Second, professionals have the skills and experience necessary to ensure proper prep and installation of the flooring. Proper prepping of the area is essential for a quality finished product that looks and performs to expectations. Finally, you may think that you can save money if you install it yourself, but unless you’re experienced, it’s will take you far longer to get the job done and you run the risk of making costly mistakes. Save yourself time and potential problems by finding a professional installer to do the job for you. You’ll be glad you did!

What are the Best Areas for Epoxy Flooring?

Most people are familiar with epoxy for a garage floor, but its use isn’t limited to that one space. Basements are another area that are perfect for epoxy floors. That’s because epoxy can make an otherwise dark and dingy space look clean and bright. Even in the dry climate of Colorado, mold is common in basement areas. Adding a layer of epoxy to your concrete floor is a great way to prevent moisture and mold growth.

Basements and garages are the most common places to install epoxy floors, but their benefits can extend into just about any area of your home. Consider a decorative epoxy floor as part of your laundry room, kitchen, bathroom, outdoor patio, or any place that you want to be easy to clean and resistant to wear and tear.

Are There Any Disadvantages to Installing an Epoxy Floor?

The advantages of installing an epoxy floor are many, but there are a few things you’ll want to consider before you decide it’s the right choice for you. First, although epoxy floors are known to be slip-resistant, this primarily applies to water-based spills. Oil that is spilled on epoxy can make for a very slippery surface that is dangerous to walk on. That’s why many people choose to add vinyl flakes to their epoxy floor. It not only enhances traction, but it also looks great!

Second, if you're an avid DIY'er, you might be disappointed to hear that installing an epoxy floor is something that is best left to the professionals. It’s quite a bit more complicated than just painting the floor. Working with an experienced installer such as Epoxy Colorado will save you time and ensure you get high–quality, long-lasting results you desire.
