Epoxy Myths

Epoxy Flooring is Expensive 

Whenever you’re considering investing in a project for your home or business, your first question will almost certainly be, “How much will it cost?” If you’re a business owner, then you may be concerned with customer safety and protecting your floors from chemicals or dropped objects. If you’re a homeowner, then you may be considering epoxy flooring as an added safety measure in your garage, basement, or workshop.

Expense is always a relative concept, but in general, the actual cost of an epoxy installation is significantly cheaper than most people expect. Moreover, having a professional coat your flooring with epoxy is much more cost-effective than paying for repairs if your floors are damaged in any way. Concrete & Marble Transformerz offers free epoxy installation estimates that can help you determine if epoxy flooring will fit your budget.

Epoxy Flooring Requires Too Much Maintenance

One of the most common epoxy myths we encounter is that epoxy flooring requires a great deal of maintenance, and this myth couldn’t be further from the truth. You’ll need to clean your epoxy surface regularly, but if you’re a business owner, then it’s likely that you have already invested in professional floor cleaning. If you clean your floors yourself, all you need to do is mop your epoxy flooring with warm water, as a mixture of soap and water will actually degrade the compound. You can also sweep and vacuum regularly if your surfaces don’t require extensive mopping.

An At-Home Kit Is Just as Good as Professional Epoxy Services

The popularity of home improvement shows and DIY guides on the internet has led many people to believe that they can take on virtually any project by themselves. Epoxy application is a process that requires a great deal of skill and preparation, and we don’t recommend that you take on an epoxy flooring application job by yourself. Epoxy won’t adhere to an improperly prepared floor, and the last thing you want is to have to pay even more for a professional epoxy application. You’re much better off calling a professional and paying for the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the job was completed correctly the first time.
