Why Use Epoxy Floor Coatings?

You may be wondering whether epoxy floor coatings are worth the slightly higher cost. After all, there are cheap alternatives out there that can be installed a little quicker. Epoxy has become the gold standard for garage and other concrete floor coatings because it does what you want it to do—and it can last a lifetime.  

Floor paint and DIY kits are notoriously difficult to prep and install. Mats and tiles trap dirt and germs underneath them. All of these options will only work for a few years.

Better science makes epoxy floor coatings stronger and more resilient, and professional installation makes the process a breeze. Here’s how epoxy floor coatings compare to the competition.

Make Cleaning Your Concrete Floor Easier

Our premium epoxy floor coatings require little more than occasional sweeping and mopping. Rated at 800% stronger than concrete and with a 600% elastic membrane, an epoxy floor resists:

  • Scratches
  • Dents
  • Chipping
  • And more

It is definitely better than alternative options. In other words, you won’t have tiny grooves that collect germs and smell mildewy.

Interlocking tiles and garage mats can be hosed off, but they’re much more difficult to actually sanitize. Just a little vinegar solution keeps an epoxy-coated floor hygienic.

Epoxy Flooring Is Slip Resistant

Whether it’s a home garage, a finished basement, or a commercial space like kitchens, veterinary clinics, and auto shops, you need a concrete floor coating with slip resistance. Our epoxy floor coatings effectively embrace moisture. We can add custom levels of anti-skid factor to suit your needs.

Epoxy Flooring Lasts Longer than Paint or Floor Mats

In a couple of years, will you feel like emptying your garage or shutting down your business so a floor coating can be re-applied? We didn’t think so. Prestige Floor Coating offers a lifetime warranty for residential use and a two-year commercial warranty (it lasts much longer than that, but the warranty ensures that installation “took” correctly).

If you’re hesitant about paying a little more upfront, consider epoxy as a one-time investment rather than a recurring cost.

Get a Custom Color & Texture with Epoxy Floor Coatings

Popular styles for epoxy floor coatings include basic gray or tan, with or without colored chips for a terrazzo effect. However, take a glance at our color samples to see the possibilities. Epoxy coatings can look like granite, marble, mirrored metallic, or even your favorite sports team’s colors.

Safe, Green, VOC-Free Formulas

Most flooring products (even carpet or hardwood) can emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other toxins from glue and chemicals. 

Prestige Floor Coating uses VOC-free epoxy that’s safe for families and businesses. For prep work, we use low-dust diamond grinding rather than acid etching, which leaves a noxious smell that takes weeks to dissipate. Our floor coatings for hospitals are trusted for safe, healthy air. 

Simply put, we’re the green choice that’s better for you, your family, your employees and customers.
