What is Epoxy Flooring? A Guide for Homeowners

what is epoxy flooring

At home, you’re afraid to slide furniture across your presentable hardwood floors. You don’t want unsightly scratch marks. And yet, you have basement and garage floors where you throw your shovels and rakes, scuffing them up and thinking you’ll deal with it later. 

With epoxy flooring from A&P Contractors in Woodstock, GA, you can give your coated concrete floors your very harshest and not have to worry about them later.

What is Epoxy Flooring? 

Epoxy flooring is actually a top layer for your concrete, wood, tile, or metal floors. Like epoxy glue, epoxy as a floor coating consists of one part Resin and one part Hardener. Together. They create a stunning, glossy finish that would put the average concrete floor paint job to shame.

You’re probably thinking that getting epoxy flooring means taking out your existing floor, but this is not the case.

With many different colors and patterns to choose from, along with epoxy’s waterproof and durable factors, you’ll want it in every room of the house. However, be sure to also keep in mind that even though they hold up against excessive wear and tear and are chemically resistant, protecting them appropriately can give you up to thirty years of aesthetically pleasing use.  

Types of Epoxy Floor Coatings for the Home

You can find numerous home flooring options. Some of the most popular 100%-solids epoxies include:

  1. Self-Leveling Epoxy: Whether you’re playing basketball in the driveway or creating potholes with your car, you probably have a concrete floor with lots of depreciation. This coating will fill it, creating a flawless finish. 
  2. Metallic Epoxy: Consists of a similar leveling effect, but adds a metallic blend ranging from a matte to a pop of show-stopping shine. Made with 100% solids, it’s one of the most robust and most durable decorative flooring coats. 
  3. Solid Epoxy: The most versatile and affordable coating for any room in the house, from the kitchen to the bedroom, solid epoxy comes in a wide array of colors, styles, and finishes to suit your preferences. 

Why 100% Solids? 

Epoxies may all seem the same. However, the percentage of solids (paint) you are getting reflects the quality of the product, and percentages vary among the epoxies. 

As with anything, you want a high concentration of the product, and you don’t want it watered down. Similarly, you don’t want your paints made up of solvents or water, which will evaporate once dry, meaning that a portion of your coating will vanish.
