What is epoxy flooring?

Epoxy flooring is a type of flooring system that involves the application of epoxy resin to a concrete substrate. This resin, which is a type of thermosetting polymer, is mixed with a hardening agent to create a durable and chemically resistant surface. Epoxy flooring is commonly used in industrial, commercial, and residential settings due to its durability, easy maintenance, and aesthetic appeal.

The application process typically involves cleaning and preparing the concrete surface, applying a primer to enhance adhesion, and then spreading the epoxy resin mixture evenly over the floor. Additional decorative elements, such as colored flakes or quartz, can be added to the epoxy mixture to create various textures and designs.

Once applied, epoxy flooring creates a seamless and non-porous surface resistant to stains, chemicals, abrasion, and moisture. It is often chosen for its high durability and long lifespan, making it suitable for high-traffic areas such as warehouses, garages, hospitals, laboratories, and commercial kitchens. They can add beauty and functionality to your homes, too.

Custom Painting, Inc.’s epoxy flooring installation steps

The list below details our installation process steps:

  1. Consultation and design – Our crew assesses the condition of the floors, which will help them determine the appropriate epoxy formulations. In addition, they will engage in a collaborative discussion with their clients to make sense of their design goals. These discussions will help our crew to customize various epoxy flooring formulations and color and design specifications according to the client’s requirements and preferences.
  2. Surface preparation – The existing floor surface is cleaned and prepared thoroughly, which can help the epoxy coating to bond properly.
  3. Primer application – A coat of primer is applied to the surface to enhance the adhesion of the epoxy floor coating
  4. Epoxy flooring installation – The two main ingredients of epoxy coating – epoxy resin and hardener – are mixed according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. Then, the coating is applied to the surface. Depending on the preferred finish and design, more layers of epoxy coating or decorative designs may be added.
  5. Curing – The epoxy coating requires sufficient time for curing to form hardness. The curing period depends on the specific products used.
  6. Finishing and sealing – A protective topcoat is applied to enhance durability and resistance to wear and tear. Then, the topcoat is left to completely dry.

  • Customization – One of the significant advantages of epoxy flooring is its versatility in terms of design and customization. You can choose from a wide range of colors, patterns, and finishes to create a unique look that complements your home’s interior design aesthetic.
  • Resistance to chemicals – Epoxy flooring is highly resistant to chemicals, including oil, gasoline, bleach, and other common household substances. This factor makes it an ideal flooring option for garages, workshops, and areas where chemical spills are likely to occur.
  • Moisture resistance – Epoxy flooring creates a moisture-resistant barrier that helps protect the underlying concrete substrate from water damage, making it suitable for use in areas prone to moisture, such as basements and bathrooms.
  • Longevity – Properly installed and maintained epoxy flooring can last many years, providing long-term value for your investment. Its durability and resistance to wear ensure that you won’t need to replace or repair your flooring frequently.
