When it comes to choosing new flooring for either your business or home, it can seem as if you are stuck between a rock and a hard place at most times. This can be a real pain, especially when you are in a rush or in an emergency situation and this can pressure you into a short term solution but please take your time! With so many other flooring options on the market, the main question will always be why should I use this flooring? Well today, we are going to tell you why you should use an epoxy flooring system as your next flooring!
One of the first concerns that many people have when choosing new flooring is how strong is it and how long is it going to last. Well, epoxy flooring blows both of these concerns straight out of the water! Epoxy flooring is able to handle some serious abuse, no matter what environment it is in. It is able to handle heavy foot traffic or vehicle traffic in garages and shops, scratches and abrasions from everyday life in homes and even the use of heavy equipment in industrial settings. Epoxy flooring has actually been proven to make the concrete slab 300 times stronger than bare concrete.
Well, what about the lifetime of epoxy flooring systems? Yeah being strong is great and all but it’s not worth anything if it doesn’t last long enough for a return investment and that is exactly where epoxy flooring is able to shine. If the epoxy flooring has been installed correctly and properly maintained, you can expect your epoxy flooring system to last decades, well into 20 years and with some epoxies lasting well into their 30s.
Straying away from the Braun of epoxy flooring, let’s focus on the beauty. There is a common misconception that has spread over the years and that is the false rumor of epoxy flooring being strictly for garages and commercial facilities. Epoxy flooring offers more variety of customization than any other type of flooring that you can find on the market. There is a huge selection of colors to choose from, the option to use flakes or metallic pigments and for the enthusiast, there is even the option to have your favorite logo or even your companies logo installed directly into the flooring.
While the beauty of epoxy flooring isn’t known very well in the community, the customization of epoxy flooring that can make an area like a warehouse safer goes completely unnoticed. Epoxy flooring can use the helping hand of stencils to create arrows, text, barriers and even vehicle paths to make the workplace more efficient and safer, especially for workers on foot in areas that handle vehicle traffic. Along with the efficiency that epoxy flooring can bring to your business, there is another added measure of safety that epoxy flooring is able to provide. Epoxy flooring is able to reflect light so well, you won’t need additional lighting sources, making it easier to see objects on the floor and what your workers are working on all while saving you money on your electric bill.
