Will Floor Coatings Crack?

Epoxy floors, and other types of floor coatings like polyurea, polyaspartic, and polyurethane floor coatings are an increasingly popular choice for homeowners around the country looking to protect their floors, while also adding style to otherwise drab concrete floors.

In many cases, homeowners choose floor coatings to mask cracked or damaged floors, but there is the common misconception that floor coatings can prevent  cracks. This is not the case however. Cracking floors are generally formed by the home’s foundation settling. A floor coating cannot prevent this from happening, and if the settling process is significant enough, cracks can show through over time.

Do Epoxy Floors Crack?

Epoxy floors are very rigid. As a material, epoxy has very little flexibility, so slight shifts in the foundation can lead to cracks forming in an epoxy coating, leaving you with cracked floors that are difficult to repair without recoating with a new layer of epoxy–an expensive proposition.
