How to Choose the Right Epoxy Floors in Homes?
Epoxy flooring is a great option for any home, but not all homes are right for epoxy. Before installing epoxy floors in homes make sure that your home should be structurally sound in order to install an epoxy surface. There are also some spaces that have special considerations – like kitchens and bathrooms – due to the presence of water or heat respectively.
Epoxy flooring is a surface that is made up of two components-resin and hardener. When these two components are mixed together, they form a durable, weather-resistant surface that can be customized to any color or design you want. Epoxy flooring is a popular option because it’s easy to clean and maintain, and it lasts for years.
If you aren’t sure if your home is an ideal candidate for epoxy flooring, consider how the space will be used. Ask yourself the following questions:
- What do I normally spill in my home?
- Will there be children or pets using the flooring space on a regular basis?
If you answered yes to either of these questions, then epoxy flooring is not the right choice for your home. Some of the most popular uses for epoxy flooring include:
- Basement floors
- Garage floors
- High-traffic hallways
- Family rooms and playrooms
- Bedrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms (with special considerations)
If your home is the right candidate for an epoxy flooring installation, there’s a few more things to consider in order to choose the perfect product for your home. Since epoxy flooring is so durable, most manufacturers offer warranties specific to their product. Additionally, you should consider whether or not you want a matte or gloss finish on your epoxy surface. Matte finishes are perfect for high-traffic areas because they are easy to clean and don’t show footprints or scuff marks as easily. A gloss finish, on the other hand, will give you a more polished look and might be better for hallways or bedrooms.
When choosing an epoxy floor for your home, there are a few things you need to consider. The first is the type of epoxy flooring. There are three types of epoxy flooring-self-leveling, broadcast, and troweled. Self-leveling epoxy is the most popular type because it’s easy to install and it flows over cracks and uneven surfaces. Broadcast epoxy is a type of epoxy that is spread over the surface like paint and then broadcast with sand to create a textured surface. Troweled epoxy is a type of epoxy that is installed with a trowel and can be used to create custom designs.
The second thing you need to consider is the location of the epoxy floor in your home. Some spaces that have special considerations-like kitchens and bathrooms-due to the presence of water or heat respectively.
The third thing you need to consider is the lifespan of an epoxy surface. It depends on usage and maintenance, but most epoxy floors last for between 3 and 15 years.
Before you install an epoxy floors in homes, there are a few things you need to consider.
