A finished basement can add a new gym, office, entertainment area, or luxury laundry space to your home. However, before you can bring this vision to life, you have many choices to make, including the flooring. One option that is growing in popularity from Aurora to Denver, CO and beyond is basement floor epoxy. Here's what to know, so you can make the right choice for your home.
Why are epoxy floors in basements becoming more popular?
There are a number of reasons why more and more homeowners in the Aurora area are installing epoxy floors in their basements. However, the primary one is that it is moisture-proof. It stops moisture from coming up onto the floor and also prevents spills and leaks from seeping down below. It also suppresses mold, mildew, and the spread of bacteria, which is particularly important in a basement environment.
Epoxy flooring is also highly durable. It's made from industrial-grade material that stands up to high foot traffic, exercise equipment being dragged across it, heavy machinery stored on top of it, and more. It's also easy to clean with a broom or by mopping it and doesn't require any regular maintenance.
Finally, while epoxy was originally created for industrial settings, today's choices offer a range of colors and finishes. You can even get a coating that looks like granite, quartz, and other stones and opt for colors ranging from cool grays to warm beiges.
How affordable is an epoxy coating?
Epoxy is an affordable option for basement flooring in terms of upfront costs. Over time, it also won't get scratched, damaged, or stained, so it is less costly to maintain.
How long does an installation take?
Typically, for most basements in the Aurora area, installing epoxy floors takes around two days. However, the exact timeframe does depend on factors like the size of your basement, the condition of the concrete, and the finish you choose.
Can my garage floor be coated in epoxy?
Yes, epoxy can be installed in your garage as well and is a practical choice. It's durable when it comes to chemicals, abrasions, heat, liquid, salt, oil and gasoline, and other common stressors. It's also resistant to stains, cracks, and damage and will still look great despite vehicles and heavy equipment on top of it.
