Epoxy Flooring in Homes: Should you do it?

Epoxy Flooring in Homes: Should you do it?

I get approached by many home owners and architects inquiring about installing epoxy flooring in homes. I don’t mean coating garage floors or storage rooms (which is quite common) but coating the key living areas of a home such as the living room, bedrooms and the kitchen. Epoxies create that glossy seamless finish that can make the living space of a home look very impressive

    Can you use a steam cleaner on an resin floor? I’ve just bought a house that came with it. Not really sure how to get it super clean

    How about coating your home with Polyurethane? Would you recommend it or would you still get scratches?

    Would you put epoxy in bathroom at shower area? Could you advise what’s the best flooring for shower area with low maintenance? What do you think about Dumawall?

    i have a long 30ft walk indoor hallway to the house that I was thinking of epoxying. There won’t be pets and rarely children — but it is a the first part of the house that (airbnb) guests will walk through prior to the actual house. what are your two cents about doing the floor?

    it’s currently an ugly cement and we are planning on making that hallway “artsy” and i figured an epoxy job on the floor would go great with that. Let me know!

    I wish I could have epoxy floors all over my apartment.

  11. Aryan Han on December 21, 2022 at 2:22 am

    Any emissions of VOC? V concerned as epoxy has more chemicals? than ceramic/porcelain tiles. Tks

    You cant recoat it? You absolutely can.

  15. Lily Lily on December 21, 2022 at 2:32 am

    Just wondering, is concrete floor resurfaced & painted with proxy safe, if the floor is used in a bedroom or living room? I’m really concerned about indoor air safety issues. Toluene/VOCs/…(anything or anything else to look out for)? Thank you!

  16. George Smith on December 21, 2022 at 2:35 am

    So are polyurethane floors a better choice? because in forged ciment(beton cire) they use polyurethance coatings. Are these more scratch resistant?

    I have epoxy flooring in my entire home. I went to “school”, and a friend, family member & I installed the flooring. Yes, it takes attention to detail. My friend kept getting frustrated at my “pickiness”, but it paid off. Five years & 5 dogs later, yes, the floors are not as shiny, but they still look great, are VERY easy to clean, & I still love them! I just run a large dust mop around the house daily (for dog hair & dirt) & the floors look clean! (Of course I mop weekly, too ). I do not regret my decision.

    what is a better alternative to epoxy floor in a bedroom? (not worried about gloss by the way) I just want something a beginner can do themselves but don’t want tile, carpet or wood.

  20. A Sp on December 21, 2022 at 2:43 am

    Another aspect not mentioned here is the effect of epoxy resin on our health. Can you tell us something about the safety of such floors in apartments. I am referring to VOC and chemicals contained in resins that are released into the home environment if someone has such floors at home.. Great video. Thanks.

    Thank you for your video and the information contained in it.

    I would like to try the epoxy in a new home as a short term flooring plan, of about a year to five years. I have come across acid staining. What is your opinion and comparison between epoxy and acid staining? Which one is long lasting?
