Protective Flooring Solutions Boston
Having installed your flooring means you should be able to keep its beauty and durability in check. There are many instances when floors survive years of heavy foot traffic and weathering. This only happens if the right floor solution is applied on it. Although many property owners do not like these solutions since they compromise the beauty of the floor. Flooring Solutions Boston just has the right floor protection for you. Epoxy flooring will do the job, both for function and aesthetics.
Epoxy flooring is a synthetic resin floor system that is laid on top of concrete flooring to protect it and to make it appear pleasing at the same time. This is done by layering thermosetting resin that is coated, trowelled and applied to the concrete floor. After the layers are done, it gives the floor a better look and at the same time, gives it a characteristic that shows strength and durability since it is bonded onto the concrete floor permanently. There are many types of epoxy flooring:
Epoxy Floor Coating
- also known as epoxy floor paint, has finishes that are single-colored. These finishes can be chosen as matte, satin or glossy. This type of floor solution is ideal to use on light foot traffic properties such as industrial properties. Although it can also be used for commercial properties, Flooring Solutions Boston can give a better suggestion on flooring solutions based on the property’s condition and function.
Epoxy Flake Coating
- the floor coating that is ideal to use on business establishments, schools, restaurants and more since it has a very durable finish. It is a mix of flakes scattered over colored epoxy-based coats and finished with a tough resistant sealer that is clear. This type of epoxy floor can withstand heavy foot traffic and does not thin out when chemicals are used to clean it.
Epoxy Terrazzo Flooring
- it has a decorative surface that is also durable. It is created by a mix of epoxy and aggregates such as marble, glass or granite. After the mixture is set, it is polished and ground to expose the aggregate mixed into it. This gives it a very decorative appearance and a sturdy, long lasting and hard-wearing floor finish.
There are still a lot of types of epoxy flooring that can be used in residential, commercial and even industrial properties. Flooring Solutions Boston recommends epoxy flooring because of various advantages such as aesthetics that make the floor look beautiful without much effort. It also has low maintenance requirements since the concrete substrate is covered by epoxy. It makes it easier to clean with just a good old mopping of general cleaners that do not chemically affect the resin which makes it very durable as well. Although the durability depends on the property’s population (human foot traffic or machine wheel traffic), epoxy flooring is still strong enough to last longer than untreated concrete floors.
Epoxy flooring is suitable to use in various kinds of properties. It is not limited to be used in commercial properties but also in homes or even huge industrial companies, warehouses and more. Due to its non-slippery characteristic, epoxy flooring is considered as one of the safest flooring solutions available.
