Epoxy coatings are an industrial strength floor paint that can be laid over concrete. Once used only in the industrial arena, epoxy coatings are becoming more popular for residential use. There are three types of epoxy coating: 100% solid, solvent-based, and water-based. 100% solvent lasts the longest, but it is very potent and can only be professionally installed. Solvent-based epoxy contains 40-60% solids, and is also very toxic. It can be purchased for residential use at an industrial supply store, but extreme precautions such as ventilation and respirators have to be used when applying it. Water based epoxy is the least expensive, has no hazardous fumes, and can be purchased at any home improvement store. Water based epoxy is not as durable as the other kinds, but it works very well for residential purposes.
Once an epoxy cover is laid and set over a concrete floor, it provides a non-skid surface that is resistant to chemicals like oil and grease. This is what makes epoxy coating such a great choice for garage floors. It is also a great option for basement floors because it is attractive and easy to clean. Epoxy coating comes in a variety of colors and can be specifically made to match your home’s color scheme, just like paint. Unlike concrete, epoxy coating is impermeable which makes it virtually impossible to stain and very difficult to damage with everyday activities. It is also waterproof and non-toxic when dry. Epoxy covering are a very inexpensive and affordable home improvement project, costing only a few hundred dollars or less.
While epoxy coatings are a good addition to most homes, they’re not suitable for every surface. The key to having a durable epoxy coating is to have the concrete surface properly prepared before laying down the epoxy. Any dirt, dust, oil, or salts that may be present can cause the epoxy to blister, crack or lose adherence. Old or weak concrete that shifts or flakes can cause damage to the epoxy coating on top. If your concrete is prone to sweating (constantly damp areas), the moisture coming from underneath will compromise the epoxy coating. In these cases, epoxy coating may not be the best option.
Because the success and durability of your epoxy coating depends so heavily on surface preparation, it is best to let a professional help you lay the finish. They can also make suggestions as to the appearance of the coating for your situation, like laying down colored paint chips on the wet epoxy to give it style and texture. If you feel confident that you can take on the project yourself, do your homework and be sure to choose a brand and mixture of epoxy that will work best in your area.
