Things you can do with epoxy flooring

Epoxy is a type of resin that can be poured on a concrete floor, or other concrete surface. The epoxy provides a protective, clear surface. There are different options available when it comes to how glossy you want the floor to be once the epoxy cures. The epoxy can be applied to concrete that has been painted or prepared in other ways, such as with vinyl stickers or with stamped concrete. 

The benefits of epoxy flooring

There are a lot of great things about epoxy floors. For one thing, they can be some of the most durable floors that are resistant to so many of the things that tend to ruin most other types of flooring. Some examples of things epoxy flooring is resistant to are: 

  • Scratches 

  • Stains

  • Pest-related damage

  • Pet-related damage

  • Foul odors

  • UV fading

  • Water damage

  • Premature wear

Epoxy floors are also fantastic in homes where there are pets. The floors will stand up great against pets that would otherwise claw and damage other types of flooring. Also, pet accidents won't cause stains and stubborn foul odors. There is also the fact that the epoxy floors are so easy to completely clean that it helps with the air quality when you have pets. 

Since the flooring helps to improve the air quality in the home, household members who usually suffer from things like pet allergies, dust allergies or seasonal allergies will be able to get a break from their symptoms when they come home, as the clean floor and air will cater to their needs. Anyone else with sinus or respiratory issues can benefit in the same way. 

These floors also allow you to do what you want with the floor and know that it is going to look great for years. You won't have to worry about spending a lot of time cleaning it and frequent maintenance. 


If you think epoxy flooring is right for you, then you should start thinking of just how you want it to look and get started on having it put in.

From Hardwood to Carpet

How many different types of flooring do you have in your home? Most people have at least two or three. Bedrooms and living rooms are often carpeted. Kitchens and bathrooms are often fitted with some type of hard, water-resistant flooring like tile or vinyl. Then, there's the dining room. Hardwood is really common in dining rooms, although it is far from the only flooring choice. As you read this blog, you should find that your knowledge about flooring slowly grows.
