One of the most asked questions that any epoxy floor installer is asked is,” how is epoxy flooring better than say, tile or hardwood?” Today we are going to take a deeper look into the most popular traditional floorings like tile and hardwood flooring systems to show you exactly how epoxy flooring is better on so many levels. Let us get started with tile!

While tile may have one of the biggest selections of appearance to choose from, there is always someone that will be able to choose the exact same tile as you. In most cases, there are even times where the person who likes the tile they have chosen at one point and the coming months they see that the flooring doesn’t match the aesthetic they are trying to achieve. Another reason why many people choose to go with tile is that they have been told that tile is one of the most durable floorings that can even be placed in residential properties. They often learn they have been fooled after a pan get dropped on a tile and it shatters…

Epoxy flooring is proven to be one of the most customizable flooring options available on the planet with a wide selection of colors, the option to use multi-colored or single colored flakes or even the choice to use metallic pigments. The best part about the customization of epoxy flooring is the fact that it will be very difficult to replicate your flooring and actually impossible to replicate your flooring if you choose to go with a metallic epoxy floor coating so your flooring will truly be one of a kind. Epoxy flooring is as durable as it is appealing as well. Epoxy flooring is able to resist heavy foot and vehicle traffic, impact from dropped objects and scratches or abrasions from daily life, unlike tile.

The next flooring we are going to compare to epoxy flooring is hardwood flooring. Hardwood flooring has been one of the most popular types of flooring, especially in the residential flooring market for well over 200 years. But it’s now 2019 and wood is starting to become outdated with only a few different ways to differentiate from different types of wood, most dominantly is the price tags of different woods. Wood flooring is also very taxing on our planet as well, as you need to chop down a massive amount of trees just to create only a few floorings out of the wood. We need to start using greener and more modernized flooring systems like…

Epoxy flooring! Epoxy flooring has the ability to make any area it is placed in appear more sleek and modern as soon as it is installed and doesn’t require any tedious staining methods or waxes to make it pop. This is because epoxy flooring is able to shine just by using its marvelous top coat and not any messy materials. Epoxy flooring is even green in the terms as all materials used to make this flooring are man made, we are not taking anything from mother nature to walk all over! Epoxy flooring is even better when it comes to disposing of as it won’t take up massive areas in a dump like a wood flooring or even tile flooring would! If you want a more modern appearance or want to keep the earth green, you should use epoxy flooring!
