Epoxy flooring is a material that has grown in popularity because of its uniqueness. This mixture makes concrete floor reinforced and resistant to stains.
After smoothening and prepping a concrete floor, a mixture of resin and a hardening material is poured over the floor to create a polished and durable finish.
Many people considered epoxy flooring for commercial shops, garage flooring, hospitals, schools, and other industrial environments. However, with the discovery of many design options, epoxy flooring has now become a practical flooring solution in residential spaces, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and other living spaces.
Advantages of Epoxy Flooring
Many homeowners appreciate that an epoxy floor can be a durable, elegant, and low maintenance flooring choice in several areas of their home. Here are some benefits of epoxy flooring:
Makes Floor Smooth and Easy to Maintain
Anyone can easily clean epoxy floors and wipe dust with ease. Epoxy floors are also stain-resistant. Cleaning would be effortless even if you spill liquids or chemicals on your epoxy floor.
Creates a Shiny Floor Surface
Epoxy coating gives your floor an attractive polished sparkle. The glossy surface also makes mess look less stressful to clean up. Epoxy coatings come in various hues and styles, so you can be sure there is a gradient to suit your taste.
You can add patterns, swirls, and color to an epoxy floor, which can transform your living room or indoor spaces into works of art.
Epoxy coatings lessen the impact and prevent accidents such as stumbling or slippage. Epoxy floors are also resistant to chemicals, heat, and fire, ensuring safety and security in your home or office.
Epoxy floor coating is more affordable than other residential flooring alternatives. The materials and installation costs are manageable, making epoxy floors a practical investment.
Epoxy floors are resistant to cracking, staining, fading, and abrasion, resulting in incremental cost savings.
The Process of Epoxy Floor Coating
Epoxy floor coating is a challenging process and not recommended as a do-it-yourself project. Mistakes can result in bubbles forming in your floor, chipping, and uneven flooring.
Hire a professional epoxy floor contractor to carry out these installation steps for epoxy floor coating on your concrete floor:
1. Prepare the Surface
Methods to prepare concrete floors include sanding or diamond-grinding. Surfaces contaminated with oils may require chemical cleaning.
2. Clean the Floor
The use of an industrial vacuum is necessary to pick up the smallest dust particles. You do not want particles trapped within the coat that can also weaken the adhesion. Less micro-dust means less primer.
3. Prime the Floor
Using a suitable epoxy primer will give your concrete surface a longer life and better adhesion. An epoxy primer also eliminates the formation of bubbles.
4. Fill Cracks with Epoxy Gout
The use of a diamond cutter to slice thin cracks before filling them with epoxy grout is necessary to improve the anchoring of the epoxy grout.
5. Apply Coats of Epoxy Paint
An electric mixer is required to make the epoxy coat mixture. Poor mixing will lead to a poor outcome. Apply the product with a high-grade roller and re-coat after 24 hours. Fill cracks and holes with epoxy grout before applying the final coat.
