What Is the Benefit of an Epoxy Floor In Your Home?

By November 20, 2012August 18th, 2022Renovation Tips

When most folks think of interior epoxy coatings, they immediately conjure up ideas of garage or shop floors. However, with many new decorative finishes and products available, epoxy flooring is now a popular option for kitchens, bathrooms, finished basements, living areas, screened porches and many more residential applications. Homeowners are learning that an epoxy floor coating can be a stylish, durable and easily maintainable flooring option for many areas of their home.

There are many obvious benefits to using epoxy flooring including wonderful durability, resistance to abrasion, chemicals and heavy foot traffic, and ease of maintenance. However, our team at re:fab has put together a short list of some benefits you may have not considered.

Cost Savings: Depending on the products you choose, epoxy flooring can be slightly more expensive in the initial installation than typical residential flooring options. When homeowners take into consideration the resistance to staining, cracking, abrasion and fading – a lifespan exceptionally greater than most flooring options – cost savings become apparent. By choosing an epoxy floor coating, you won’t have the cost of replacing carpet, tile or linoleum, and you’ll eliminate the need for steam cleaning, waxing and other restoration chores.

Style: Epoxy flooring is perhaps one of the most stylish alternatives to traditional flooring available today. Many new homes, urban lofts and forward-thinking business are choosing interior epoxy floor coating as a cosmopolitan alternative to carpet, tile and wood. New products are giving homeowners unparalleled options with many application styles, decorative touches and colors to choose from.

Environmentally Friendly: There are many low-VOC varieties of epoxy coatings that can indeed be eco-friendly. By choosing these options, you are also reducing the waste associated with replacing old carpet or tile as well as eliminating the need to reseal hardwood floors with the traditional toxic resins. Many environmentalists also encourage the use of epoxy flooring because it reduces the consumption of natural resources such as granite, marble, wood and other materials typically used in residential applications.

Perhaps one of the biggest questions we get from potential clients is regarding the comfort and warmth of an epoxy floor coating. While there are many wonderful benefits to choosing epoxy flooring, these two items can be the most challenging for homeowners. Simply put, concrete is not a soft, plush flooring option. Many homeowners overcome this obstacle with the use of beautiful area rugs designed to soften the look and feel of the room.

With regards to warmth, homeowners in hot climates such as Arizona and Florida often prefer epoxy flooring because of the coolness the coating offers. However, in cooler climates, epoxy flooring – similar to tile floors – often needs to be supplemented with area rugs to reduce energy consumption.
