Epoxy floor coatings are formulated to withstand damage and aging from even the harshest environments. Epoxies are useful in a room like a mancave to an industrial facility where forklifts roam 24/7. epoxies can even be used on driveways and sidewalks to reinforce your concrete or simply jazz up the front of your home.

How is epoxy flooring better than traditional concrete?

Epoxy flooring is much better than a bare concrete floor in many ways. Epoxy flooring is a seamless and solid surface that doesn’t allow any moisture or impacts to touch your concrete making it last longer. A bare concrete floor is very porous and will crack and chip if a heavy object is dropped on it. When moisture is able to leak onto a concrete surface, the concrete absorbs the moisture which breaks down its molecular composition, which weakens it. Not only will your concrete crack faster, the soil underneath washes away and may cause serious structural damage. An epoxy flooring system will make your concrete moisture resistant and up to 300 percent stronger.
