Why is epoxy flooring better than traditional concrete flooring
One of the most frequently asked questions our team of epoxy flooring contractors receive is the question of traditional concrete flooring or epoxy floor ooatings. Well, it all comes down to what you really need from your flooring. Do you need increased weight capacity or resistance to damage from your flooring? If that’s what you need, you need an epoxy system in place because concrete flooring like polished concrete offers zero weight tolerance or resistance to damage. Does your home or facility often handle harsh chemicals? That means that it is time to have epoxy installed as traditional concrete flooring will allow the chemical to come in contact with the concrete slab, resulting in the chemicals being leaked out into the environment.

The process of installing an epoxy floor coating will seem like a walk in the park compared to the installation processes of other flooring systems. In a two car garage, you can expect us to be out of your hair in as little as 4 days! Remember, after we are gone you need to wait at least 24 hours until the flooring is ready for light foot traffic and wait at least 72 hours before the flooring is ready for vehicle traffic and heavy use. While most of our garage floor epoxy installations go smoothly, there are sometimes factors that can make the process longer than expected. These factors include heavy repairs or even inclement weather.
