Epoxy Basement Floors

epoxy basement floorsWhile some people may use their basement as a simple storage or laundry area, other people may use the space as a media room or even a living area. Choosing the proper material to coat a basement floor can be a challenge for some people because of the many options that are available and how they plan to use the area. Concrete is often the standard material for basement floors, but carpet may be a preferred material for living areas, and epoxy could be a great choice for media rooms. Today we are going to focus on the benefits of epoxy coatings for basement floors.

Benefits of Epoxy Basement Floors

  • Epoxy is a very durable material which is resistant to stains, cracks, and other damage that other materials are often unable to handle.
  • Epoxy floor coatings are available in hundreds of different colors, textures, and patterns to perfectly suit your preferred style.
  • This material is very easy to clean. Simply sweep up any mess and mop over the epoxy to restore its attractive appearance.

Possible Drawbacks

  • Basements with epoxy coatings will be cold during winter.
  • Epoxy floors become slick when they are wet. You will need to walk cautiously around spills or after you clean the surface.
