Did you know that with the proper preparation and installation, epoxy floors can last years or even decades? It’s true!
Wherever you put your floors — the garage, kitchen, laundry room, or even your back patio — you can enjoy gorgeous, durable floors for many, many years without worrying about the floor dulling, peeling, chipping, or staining.
When you get your floors professionally installed, you get a floor that is thick, has several layers, and is formulated to resist grease, chemicals, temperature changes, humidity, and even pressure or impacts. Unlike floor paint, which wears down and cracks from sustained contact with car tires, foot traffic, and weather, epoxy floors maintain their integrity and stylish appearance well into the future.
So why do properly-installed epoxy floors last so much longer than other floors? Let’s take a look:
- Professionals prepare well. The existing concrete space will be cleaned, repaired, and diamond-ground to ensure the best, most even application of epoxy.
- Professionals assess moisture levels. A thorough assessment of moisture levels in the concrete and air should be done to optimize the bonding coat for the surface of the floor.
- Professionals apply multiple layers. Do not be fooled by the epoxy kits that you can buy retail from the store. Professional-grade materials yield professional results; proper installation of the polymers and epoxy resins ensures the best longevity of your floors.
- The floors are easy to maintain. All you need to do is sweep and mop to maintain the aesthetics and surface quality of your epoxy floors.
So resist the temptation to cut corners with products that are not professional grade. If you are wondering how long epoxy floors last, do not judge them by bad installations. Always work with a professional, because saving money in the beginning doesn’t necessarily factor into the time and expense of re-doing poor work.
