Like most people, there is a good chance that you automatically relate epoxy floors to residential and commercial garages. The fact is that while epoxy is the best flooring solution for this type of environment, this decorative coating actually serves many more purposes. In fact, epoxy floors are now one of the top choices for interior surfaces for both home and business owners.
Although epoxy floors can be installed virtually anywhere, they are an excellent option for the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, and outdoor patio. The primary reason is that epoxy is extremely water and moisture resistant. Liquid spills are notorious in all of these spaces. With epoxy, the floor has no damage and cleanup is a breeze.
Being impact resistant is one reason why epoxy floors are so popular in garages. However, if you think about it, things get dropped inside the home as well. When epoxy is used in the kitchen, you never have to worry about scratches or dents caused by dropped dishes, canned food, cooking utensils, and so on. Even when used for an outside patio, this type of floor can withstand all kinds of abuse and still look gorgeous.
Epoxy floors are also resistant to oil, grease, coffee, and even red wine, things that typically cause permanent stains. Because this coating is non-porous, nothing penetrates. In addition, epoxy is capable of withstanding abrasions and even chemicals. No matter where you choose to have epoxy floors installed, you are guaranteed a long-lasting surface that looks amazing.
Whether using SunEpoxy 54 or SunEpoxy 100, the floors are gorgeous. You can stick with varying shades of gray or go with color. For something completely unique, a professional Sundek systems installer can add SunFlex, which are beautiful quartz beads, or SunChips, which are metallic flakes. The size, volume, and color of the additives determine just how much glisten the floor has.
If preferred, epoxy floors can be made slip-resistant. In the bathroom, water spills from the bathtub or shower are never a problem. When installed outside on a patio, rain and snow will not compromise safety. This is also a great coating for the pool deck, again providing people with a safe and comfortable surface to walk on.
Now, if you want epoxy floors in your dining room, hearth room, or foyer, the installer can create a mirror-like finish that is simply stunning. Based on the aesthetic that you want to achieve, epoxy is either rolled or brushed on. After the first coat, colored beads or chips are added, along with slip-resistant additives. Once the final top coat is applied and dried, you will absolutely love your new floor.
