Is Epoxy Flooring Suitable for Residential Houses? 

On March 31, 2022

Epoxy floorings have become a popular choice for decorative, high-performance flooring in commercial spaces, such as retail buildings and showrooms. Another great application for epoxy floors is residential homes. Epoxy floors are suitable for multiple types of residential spaces, making them a fun, protective, and customizable flooring solution for your home.

What are Epoxy Floors?

Epoxy floors are beautiful, protective floors that are often poured over concrete to seal the concrete and add a decorative layer that adds visual interest to the space. Epoxy is a durable flooring solution that can be customized with a variety of colors, patterns, textures, and even metallics and glitter. Epoxy floors are popular in residential homes, often used in garages and basements to enhance the appearance of these spaces.

At California Marble, we seal all our epoxy flooring projects with a polyaspartic topcoat. These topcoats are more durable than epoxy and help your floors to last longer. Many flooring experts recommend polyaspartic topcoats because of the extra benefits they provide over traditional epoxy floors.

Polyaspartic Topcoat Benefits

Polyaspartic topcoats have all the benefits of epoxy, plus more! We add a polyaspartic topcoat to every epoxy floor application to give your new floors the durability that only a polyaspartic topcoat can provide. There are many other benefits to polyaspartic coatings, which is why they are recommended by flooring experts.

Four Times More Durable than Epoxy Alone

Polyaspartic topcoats are highly durable, up to four times more durable than epoxy alone. Polyaspartic coatings are scratch, stain, and chemical resistant, making them suitable for a wide range of applications. These topcoats provide extra protection that epoxy alone cannot offer to your floors.

Easy to Clean and Maintain

Our polyaspartic coatings are non-porous, making them easy to clean and maintain. All they require is sweeping and occasional mopping to keep clean. Because of their non-porous nature, polyaspartic coatings are moisture-resistant, allowing you to apply them in outdoor applications and garages without the risk of cracking or erosion caused by water runoff.

Cures Faster than Epoxy

Epoxy alone can take over a week to cure and has an unpredictable cure time based on the temperature. When a polyaspartic topcoat is added, cure time is much faster, allowing you to use your floors within 24 hours or less after installation. Polyaspartic coatings are also not affected by weather, making them able to be installed at any time of year without problems.

100% UV Stable – No Yellowing or Fading

Epoxy is known to turn yellow and fade over time with exposure to UV rays from the sun. Polyaspartic coatings are 100% UV stable, protecting your floors from turning yellow or fading. Your floors will look as vibrant and amazing as the day they were installed for years to come with a durable, UV-stable polyaspartic topcoat.

Where Can Epoxy Floors be Applied in My Home?

Epoxy floors can be applied just about anywhere in your home that you can imagine, as long as proper prep work has been completed. They are often used in basements and garages, but other popular applications include bathrooms and kitchens. With a polyaspartic anti-slip topcoat, epoxy floors are even used for patios and pool decks as a safe, decorative, moisture-resistant flooring solution.
