What Is Epoxy Flooring?
Attractive, custom designs meet unrivaled durability
Epoxy may look like thick paint when it’s applied but it’s definitely not. Epoxy concrete coatings in Des Moines are comprised of resins and hardeners that cause a chemical reaction when combined. When applied to carefully prepared concrete, the epoxy resin bonds with the concrete itself and cures — not dries — into an ultra-durable and long-lasting plastic material.
At Artistic Concrete Designs Iowa, we use only high-grade 100% solids epoxy that’s formulated to withstand even harsh industrial and commercial settings as well as residential uses. Our epoxy flooring installers also take the time to prepare your concrete floor with repairs, stain treatments, and concrete grinding to ensure a strong bond that stands the test of time.
A one-of-a-kind 3D floor with an unbeatable price
Looking for a floor system that really makes a statement? Whether it’s installed in a business lobby, basement, or garage, you can bet that a metallic epoxy floor in Cedar Rapids will get attention. A metallic epoxy floor system combines many colors of metallic pigments over a base coat as well as agitation in the form of solvents, blowers, and brushes to create a completely unique and mesmerizing effect.
Metallic epoxy floors in Des Moines can look like lava, molten metal, flowing water, marble, and much more with three-dimensional ripples, craters, and flows. Metallic epoxy has an elegant style with the illusion of depth and movement that must be seen to be believed.

There are many ways to rejuvenate and resurface a pool deck from coatings and stains to stamped concrete overlays.
Enjoy the rich texture and color of real wood without the moisture and pest concerns or upkeep. A concrete wood floor uses a stamping and staining process to transform regular concrete into the realistic look and texture of wood planks. Concrete that looks like wood can be used outdoors for a pool deck or patio or it can be used inside such as in a basement where moisture bars the use of real wood flooring.
A basement can add valuable living space to your home but it’s also prone to moisture issues. Artistic Concrete Designs Iowa delivers cost-effective basement waterproofing in Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, and surrounding areas to reclaim your basement. A specialized coating is used to seal your concrete and prevent moisture from seeping up from the ground. This finished floor system solves water issues for good and delivers a beautiful decorative appearance.
Want to extend the life of your concrete and protect any stain that’s been applied? Our concrete contractors offer affordable concrete washing and sealing to protect your concrete from hazards like de-icers, road salts, chemicals, and even water. Concrete sealing won’t make your concrete slippery; instead, it penetrates into the concrete’s pores to create a protective barrier without changing its color or texture.

Des Moines Concrete Polishing
Attractive yet low-cost concrete flooring
Need a waterproof, low-cost, and decorative floor system for your basement? What about an incredibly tough and virtually permanent commercial flooring solution? Polished concrete can fit these needs and more. Our concrete polishing contractors in Des Moines use a multi-step approach to give you custom polished concrete floors to fit your needs.
Concrete grinding and polishing involves the use of a densifying chemical that actually makes the surface of your concrete denser and less porous. This also helps the concrete accept a high-gloss sheen through multiple stages of polishing. Don’t be fooled: polished concrete floors don’t need to be gray and industrial-looking. We can use a variety of water- and acid-based stains to achieve anything from mottled earth tones to deep and vibrant shades. We can also create custom patterns and even incorporate logos in a polished concrete floor.

Benefits of Epoxy Flooring in Des Moines
Why epoxy is a smart investment
Homeowners and facility owners in Iowa appreciate epoxy floor coatings for many reasons. Epoxy offers unique advantages for all types of environments, from harsh industrial settings with chemical exposure and extreme temperatures to residential basements and garages. Here’s what makes epoxy flooring a great investment.
- Extreme durability. Epoxy holds up against all types of perils like extreme temperature, heavy machinery, chemical spills, moisture, vehicle traffic, and much more without deterioration, stains, or wear.
- Affordable. An epoxy floor coating is one of the most cost-effective floor systems you can choose. Along with a low upfront cost for a custom floor, epoxy requires minimal care and it can last decades.
- Safe and easy to sanitize. Epoxy flooring offers a slip-resistant surface that’s perfect for a garage or commercial building. Thanks to its seamless and resilient surface, it’s also a sanitary floor that meets USDA standards and may be installed in a commercial kitchen, public restroom, or a medical facility.
- Bright and reflective. An epoxy concrete coating increases floor brightness by up to 300% thanks to its reflective surface. This improves visibility in work areas and brightens dark areas like a garage or basement.
- Unlimited design choices. Epoxy can be installed in a single, sleek color, with a multi-color custom design or popular option like checkerboard, or with multi-colored epoxy flakes that give the look of granite. Metallic epoxy flooring is also an option for a stunning three-dimensional effect.
