Benefits of Epoxy Flooring
Are you thinking about getting epoxy flooring installed but aren’t sure if it’s the right option? Whether you’re giving your garage a makeover or need to make a decision about flooring in a new home you’re building, this floor type could be the perfect choice.
Epoxy has been used to create the look of marble floors in commercial buildings since it was invented but homeowners are now discovering it’s the perfect flooring for new home construction. It’s not just for safety and beauty in the garage anymore!
Our Tampa professionals at CJ Garage Flooring can tell you all about the benefits of this flooring type. One thing our customers like most about epoxy flooring is the safety of the non-skid surface.
Non-Skid Flooring Surface for Safety
Slippery surfaces can cause accidents, especially for the elderly and very young. Many people choose some type of non-skid flooring surface to prevent slip and falls.
The nature of epoxy flooring offers some traction because it contains grit products. However, it can be slippery when wet unless an additive is used to give it more traction.
We suggest to use an additive in the garage or any work areas around your home such as the kitchen floors and stairs, especially when there’s an elderly person living in the home.
Epoxy Floors Are Versatile & Beautiful
Want a custom logo or emblem of your favorite sports team on your epoxy garage floors? Or, do want your garage floors to look like real granite? No problem!
One of the top benefits of epoxy flooring is how versatile it is to design a custom look. A skilled contractor can create a custom design in a wide range of colors, textures, and styles.
The Real Marble Floor Look Without the Price
Marble flooring costs around $8 to $11 per square foot on average with high labor costs. Epoxy floors look like real marble without the high price tag.
Epoxy flooring doesn’t look like marble floor tiles, it looks like entire slabs of quarried marble were brought in and set into place. You’ll have one amazing flooring surface that extends the entire length of your house.
If you want the luxury look of marble floors without the price tag, epoxy is the way to go.

Extremely Easy to Clean
All that’s necessary to clean an epoxy floor is to use a dust mop or vacuum on it regularly and mop it. The nature of the waterproof surface will reject any dirt and grime, making is slide right off the surface.
Clean it regularly and you won’t have to go any further. For heavy cleaning or set-in stains, you can spray it with a product like Windex or a water and ammonia solution and scrub it with a stiff nylon brush.
