Epoxy floorings are a vital part of the interiors of many commercial stores, offices, and factories. Epoxy has been around for over a century. It was first discovered and used by Russian chemists. But on a commercial level, the material was mass-produced in 1927.
Epoxy coatings have come a long way since then. Back in the day, it was used as a primer for paint adhesion. Today, this resinous compound is used for seamless flooring that has a glossy shine.
The reflective epoxy coating is non-slip, making it perfect for industrial use. It can easily be cleaned and maintained as well.
When installed by professionals, these floors last many years. Every couple of years, an additional coating of epoxy can be applied to maintain the gloss of the surface.
Epoxy installation DIY kits are also available. However, it’s best to steer clear of them and get a professional to do the installation. Why?
Here are some of the risks of not having a professional install the floor:
Epoxy flooring installation requires a fair amount of preparation. Creating the foundation of the flooring is essential in making the floor last for many years.
Professional epoxy construction services know these processes inside out. With their years of experience, they know the areas that require more emphasis during the installation process to reinforce the flooring.
Professionals also know how to deal with cracks, chipping, and inconsistencies in concrete. Those going the DIY route often get this part of the installation process wrong. As a result, the epoxy won’t have the seamless finish you were hoping for.
The trickiest part of installing a floor coating like epoxy is getting the surface of the concrete completely leveled. Professional epoxy installation technicians describe it as drawing a straight line; but it sounds a lot easier than it actually is.

Epoxy floorings require specialized tools and machinery to achieve the look you’re going for. You also need to possess the knowledge of using these tools too; otherwise, it could be hazardous to your health and safety.
DIY kits aren’t as good as professional level products
Over-the-counter epoxy kits that can be purchased from home improvement stores are meant for small projects. If you’re planning to do the whole house, you’re better off allowing the professionals to do it.
Professional level epoxy installation uses better quality materials and additives to give the floor the industrial strength you want for heavy equipment or heavy foot traffic. Professional installation will have a seamless finish and last you much longer too.
