Get More Out of Your Flooring With Epoxy

By May 31, 2013August 17th, 2022Renovation Tips

Epoxy is an amazing chemical compound with many uses. It’s often used as an electrical insulator or as an adhesive, but one of its greatest and most common utilizations is flooring. When applied correctly the epoxy lies down flat and smooth over concrete, creating a waterproof and easy to clean surface. The flooring is so versatile and convenient, that it is typically found in warehouses and hospitals, a place where the ability to maintain a safe working environment could be a matter or life and death. Hopefully, the consequences aren’t so drastic in your own home, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a lot out of installing epoxy flooring. The following are some ways:

LASTS LONGER. Once you’ve installed epoxy flooring or had a Massachusetts industrial paint company like re:fab install it for you, you can rest assured that you will have durable flooring for years to come. The epoxy actually creates a protective layer to your already existing floor and the water resistance keeps out harmful moisture. All this will save you from having to make repairs or even replace your regular floor for a long time.

DESIGNS. Even with the practical reasons to install epoxy flooring, there is still a major aesthetic reason in that epoxy can come in many different designs and styles. Think of it like paint for your floor that just happens to have major protective qualities. Check out the possibilities on the re:fab website.

INSTALLATION. Once you’ve decided to get epoxy coating in your home the process of applying it is relatively unobtrusive and won’t take very long. The actual applying of the epoxy flooring may seem simple; it is just a coating after all. There is some truth to that thinking and an industrious do-it-yourselfer could take care of it, but considering the importance of the flooring, it is recommended to get the pros in there.

GARAGE. You’ve probably already realized the most obvious place for this coating is the garage. You would be correct. Whether you use your garage as a workspace or just simply to house your car, the epoxy is safe on tires and clean up is very easy, even oil stains can come right off.

OTHER USES. That does not mean the flooring is limited to the garage. Really any place where there might be spills or where clean up is a common occurrence. This includes kitchens, bathrooms and with its moisture protection it’s also a very smart idea for basements. The design potential also allows you to keep up with the décor of whatever room you choose to put it in.

EIFS + Stucco


Commercial buildings and industrial facilities featuring exterior walls with an Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) have the attractiveness of a stucco finish but with greater insulation, toughness and longevity. In fact, unlike stucco, EIFS is actually a multi-layered system that includes insulation board, base coat and finish coat. It’s a combination that provides a classic look with modern advantages.
