Basement Flooring

Epoxy floors are not simply made for your residential garage or your industrial property! The incredible benefits epoxy floors offer these areas and properties are also offered to your basement floor; however, the benefits are much more noticeable in your basement because of the necessity behind having a flooring system that can withstand varying changes.

Having a basement epoxy floor means protecting the foundation of your home for decades, lowering insurance costs because the chances of damage decrease dramatically with a professional epoxy floor, and transforming your basement from a strange smelling space into a livable area is never a bad addition!

Water and Moisture
Water and Moisture
Your basement is always going to be in danger of flooding, simply because of its location and common infrastructure. When spring and fall start coming around, especially after a dry summer, rain and snow are inevitable and your home needs to be prepared for it! Naked concrete in a basement area is opening the doors for expensive repairs and issues that can damage the entire safety of your home including mold growth. Water below your basement’s concrete floors, in the soil, release vapor that will come up through your concretes pores leaving droplets in its wake and leaving your home with bacteria growth. Epoxy floors do not allow damages or growths like this to ensure because they resist absorption making the overall basement area uninhabitable by bacteria and mold. Large spills that only impact the floor will not be tolerated by a properly installed epoxy floor! You will be able to clean up the spill and dry the area without thousands of dollars in repair being spent.
Strength and Durability

Your basement does not have to be a dark place where only storage and dirt take up space! Your basement can be transformed into a strong surface that can be used for storage, a home gym, a playroom, an office, and so much more. Furniture, equipment, and machinery can all be brought down into the area without worrying about damaging the surface because epoxy floors are scratch, impact, staining, and abrasion-resistant.
Maintenance and Cleanliness

No one wants to spend all of their time cleaning their home and having a basement to clean is never fun! But guess what? Epoxy floors make cleaning easier than any other part of your home because they do not absorb any dust, spills, or debris. Your concrete pores are completely sealed off, making them surfaces that only need quick sweeps and mops.
Decorative Flooring
Maintenance and Cleanliness
Like we discussed previously, you do not have to have a basement area that scares everyone away and the best way to do this is by installing a decorative concrete floor! Epoxy floors can be installed with different colors, textures, patterns, and can mimic other flooring materials like wood. Metallic epoxy is another option for basements that needs 100% epoxy because these floors are the strongest and most uniquely decorated epoxy floors. Metallic floors manipulate pigmentation to create never before seen 3D illusions. There is an option of flake epoxy that looks like a granite surface but is much more resistant and longer-lasting. Your floors can be customized for whatever you want your basement to be!
