Epoxy paint is a two-part, coating “system” widely used for industrial and commercial floors due to its durability, strength, light reflectivity and protecting concrete from wear and tear from high volume motorized traffic, chemicals and other harsh elements. These are the same reasons it’s now popular for painting garage floors, painting floors and other indoor living areas like patios, laundry rooms, etc.
Epoxy paint offers many advantages over other flooring options. Since epoxy acts as both a filler and a coating, it can be applied to rough or uneven surfaces fairly easily. It is also waterproof and highly resistant to rust, acid, chemicals, heat, and corrosion. Epoxy also is easy to clean and will not stain when exposed to most substances. It’s also a good idea to put epoxy down before laying carpet as it creates a moisture barrier.
