Epoxy Flooring: Beauty, Durability & Performance
By Guest Author: Darko Peter
When I talk with people about epoxy floors, too often they say "They are very good, but they're too expensive".
Hm... ? Are they? Let's see some facts.
Most Epoxy floors are very strong .They are resistant to all household chemicals, they are also resistant to mechanical shocks, scratching, etc. They are easy to clean and maintain.
Epoxy floors can be modernly designed and they have a very good visual appearance.
Ok, I must admit that there are many other kinds of floor coverings that look just as fabulous as marble, granite, designed art concrete and some others. These floors are greatly favoured by architects and interior designers. That's why they are so popular with people for whom entrance floors and living room floors have a special significance.
And what about epoxy terrazzo floors? Well, they may look almost exactly as marble, granite, etc. floors,
and they are more profitable especially when large areas are in question.
And what about floors in basements, garages, workshops, store rooms, laundry rooms, heating rooms, or footpaths around pools, etc?
Most people don't care much about the floors in those rooms, or they are the last thing they think of . They usually just leave it to the designer or contractor to decide what floor covering to be used.
Also, the truth is that people usually run out of money in the last phase of building or remodeling their houses so they cover their "less important" floors with the cheapest floor coverings they can buy and for which they say they are "not too bad" (usually some vinyl or tile), or they don't cover these floors at all.
It should be remembered that the floors in garages, store rooms etc. are in very frequent use and are very often cleaned.
Also, basement or garage floors, or footpaths around houses and pools are more often damaged than the other floors in the house.
Epoxy floors are long lasting floors. If they are done with high quality epoxy resins and correctly,they can be in use for more than 50 years.
Having all that in mind, do you still think that epoxy floors are expensive? I am sure you will say they are not.
So when you consider investing in your floors, maybe you should reconsider epoxy Floor coverings after all.
