If you’re looking to get a new coating on your concrete flooring, you’ve probably come across several epoxy flooring posts and companies. Before pulling the trigger on the installation of your epoxy floor, you’ll want to understand the ins and outs of epoxy flooring, especially its durability. Read on as we discuss the durability of epoxy flooring and what you need to know before getting it installed.

About Epoxy Flooring

In short, epoxy flooring is a type of flooring coat that is typically laid on top of concrete to protect the concrete and create a decorative look on it. This is done by pouring the epoxy over the concrete and allowing it to set. Sometimes, this can come in the form of many different layers that provide different benefits to the floor. 

How Durable Is It?

Epoxy flooring is very durable, providing an excellent protective sealant to concrete to ensure damage is not caused to the concrete by spills, scratches, and other types of damage. Because it provides an excellent sealant to the concrete, it is also quite durable in many settings, including home settings and industrial settings. 


However, epoxy does require regular touch updates and reinstallations throughout its life. If this thought is unappealing to you, there are some alternatives to epoxy flooring to create a strong coating on your concrete floor that requires less maintenance. In particular, polyaspartic coatings give a similar look but give up to 98% more flexibility and four times the strength of a traditional epoxy floor. In addition, polyaspartic floors often come with longer warranties than epoxy floors do, truly providing the peace of mind you need that you’ll not have to replace it as much as a traditional epoxy floor.
