Why epoxy? That is a question that you might be asking when considering the best way to protect, preserve and ensure that your concrete flooring is easy to keep clean. Well, as ARC Coatings based in Lake Havasu City Arizona serves Mohave and Maricopa counties as the largest local, family-owned business specializing in concrete coating and finishing services, let me see if I can answer that question to your satisfaction.

Epoxy is a type of resin that bonds with concrete to create a hard, smooth and glossy surface that can withstand heavy traffic, spills, stains and abrasions. And so it is easier to clean and maintain.

But epoxy coating is not just a cosmetic upgrade. It can also be considered an investment that pays off in the long run. Here are some of the benefits of epoxy coating for your concrete floor:

– Epoxy coating can increase the value of your property. A well-maintained and attractive floor can make a good impression on potential buyers or renters, and increase the resale value of your home or business. Epoxy coating can also help you save money on repairs or replacements, as it can extend the lifespan of your concrete floor by decades.
– Epoxy coating can enhance the safety and comfort of your space. Epoxy coating can create a slip-resistant surface that reduces the risk of accidents and injuries. It can also reflect light and brighten up your space, making it more inviting and pleasant. Epoxy coating can also reduce noise and vibration, as it absorbs sound and dampens shocks.
– Epoxy concrete floor coatings are easy to clean and maintain. Unlike other flooring materials, epoxy does not absorb dirt, dust, liquids or chemicals, so you can simply wipe or mop them off with a damp cloth or a mild detergent. You don’t need to wax, polish or seal your epoxy floors, as they retain their shine and color for years.
– Epoxy concrete floor coatings are resistant to damage and wear. Epoxy is a very strong and durable material that can withstand high impacts, loads and pressures without cracking, chipping or peeling. Epoxy also protects the underlying concrete from moisture, corrosion and mold, extending its lifespan and preventing costly repairs.
– Epoxy concrete floor coatings are customizable and versatile. You can choose from a wide range of colors, patterns, textures and finishes to create a unique and attractive look for your epoxy floors. You can also add decorative flakes, chips, quartz or metallic pigments to enhance the visual appeal and slip resistance of your epoxy floors. Epoxy can also be applied over existing concrete floors, tiles, wood or metal, making it suitable for any space and style.
– Epoxy concrete floor coatings are eco-friendly and safe. Epoxy is a low-VOC (volatile organic compound) product that does not emit harmful fumes or odors during or after installation. Epoxy also reduces the need for harsh cleaning chemicals and frequent replacements, saving you money and reducing your environmental impact. Epoxy is also non-toxic, non-flammable and non-allergenic, making it safe for people, pets and plants.
