Epoxy Floors for Beginners


Epoxy floor coating is a two-part mixture of resins and hardeners that enlivens, protects, and updates concrete floors in garages, basements, sunrooms, and patios. Rolled on in multiple layers, epoxy coatings create seamless stretches of flooring that withstand grease, scuffing, moisture, and chemicals. Epoxy coatings firmly adhere to concrete and are unlikely to chip or peel like regular garage floor paints.

Their durability and non-flammable nature make epoxy-coated floors a good choice for garages and basement workspaces. They are strong enough to withstand dropped power tools, carry the weight of rolling and parked cars, and stand up to spills of all kinds. In fact, when properly applied, epoxy floor finishes can endure for as long as 20 years.

Epoxy floor paints are tough, resin-base paints that come in two separate parts mixed together before applying. Applying epoxy floor coatings is almost as simple as rolling paint on a wall or across a porch floor. But before you begin, you need to thoroughly clean and patch the floor to be coated. You should also carefully calculate how much mixture is required to cover the area you wish to coat with epoxy.
