Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you clean epoxy floors?

Cleaning an epoxy floor is an extensive job in any warehouse or larger space, making it a job best left to a professional who can get it done quickly and effectively. However, there are several bits of maintenance you should perform by yourself in between professional cleanings. For example, you can remove grit from the floor with a broom, dust mop and/or shop vacuum.  Make sure you wipe away chemical spills like automotive fluids before they become permanent spots on the floor. 

What are the advantages of epoxy flooring?

Epoxy flooring has several advantages. The biggest benefit is its durability. Epoxy floors are highly durable and tend to outlast standard flooring systems. A few other pros include: 

  • It’s also easy to maintain due to its glossy finish and seamless nature.
  • It can be highly customized. You can choose different colors, designs, effects and even inserts like coins, flakes and other details.
  • It's  affordable — far more so than hardwood and other types of flooring. This value continues to pay off over time.
  • It can be slip-resistant with additional additives.

What is the best epoxy garage floor coating?

The best epoxy garage floor coating is a premium multi-layer epoxy system. When you hire a professional, you can choose more durable options like 100% solids epoxy floor coating, which is great for repelling stains and abrasion. Choose a clear epoxy or polyurethane top coat to protect this layer.

What are the different types of epoxy floor coatings?

There are many different options for epoxy floor coatings, including:

  • Water-based epoxy coating
  • 100% solids epoxy 
  • Polyurethane topcoat
  • Metallic epoxy
  • Mortar epoxy coatings
  • Self-leveling epoxy coating
  • Self-dispersing epoxy coating
  • Flake epoxy flooring
  • Mortar epoxy coating
  • Graveled epoxy coating
  • Terrazzo epoxy coating
  • And more

Talk to an epoxy flooring specialist in your area to see what your options are, and get advice on the best type to use on your floors.

What are epoxy floors?

Epoxy itself is made of polymer resins and hardening agents like glues, which (when mixed) cure to form a strong and durable chemical bond. Epoxy floors are excellent choices for warehouses, workshops, garages and other high-traffic, high-use areas where spill resistance is important. Epoxy floors are famously resilient, shiny and easy to keep clean.

How long do epoxy floors last?

The lifespan of epoxy flooring depends heavily on where it’s located, how much traffic it sees, the company or contractor you hire and how well you stay on top of maintenance. Some experts say epoxy floors can last for seven, 10, 20 or even 30 years. Still, you will likely need to re-coat your concrete floors every couple of years. This is the case even in areas like commercial workspaces, professional garages, restaurants, factories, and other areas with plenty of foot traffic. For homes and other residential applications with lighter traffic, epoxy flooring is capable of lasting far longer. 

Does epoxy flooring scratch easily?

Epoxy flooring is known for its high durability, and it does a good job of resisting scratches — especially when a topcoat is applied. However, it’s still possible to scratch and gouge epoxy floors with enough force. For this reason, it’s recommended that you take care when placing heavy items on your floors. For example, place padding under the supporting legs of any heavy object you’re moving to distribute some of the force over the flooring.

Who does epoxy floor coating and installation?

Epoxy floor coating and installation is a highly specialized job that is best left to professionals and specialists. Plenty of companies and contractors offer epoxy floor cleaning, repair, coating and installation services for garages, warehouses, commercial workshops and even residential spaces. Find an epoxy flooring specialist near you who can assess the state of the subsurface to identify problems before they arise.

How do you repair epoxy floors?

For large repairs (peeling, flaking, blistering, discoloring, etc.), it’s best to go with a professional — these repairs may require extra considerations only a professional can deliver. But for minor damage, you may choose to take the job on by yourself. Try patching up chips and cracks using a formulated epoxy repair compound.

How much does floor epoxy cost?

On average, installing floor epoxy in your garage costs between $1,870 and $2,700. This price will depend on the size of your floor, as well as the current condition of the concrete. If the pro has to repair cracked concrete or clean significant stains, the cost will likely be higher. If you’d like to add color, decorative chips or features for anti-skid properties, you will likely pay more.

I wasn't quite ready to invest in a full gut rehab my bathroom so applying white epoxy over the 70s yellow/brown tile was a good option. Joe did a great job giving my bathroom floor a second life.

Redefined Coatings transformed my basement! Michael came out and answered all my questions beforehand. I had researched epoxy floors and was worried about failure. He reassured me of the quality of products they use and installation. His team arrived on time and were professional. They finished on time and I couldn’t be happier with the finished product. I never have to worry about my basement flooding again and my floor being ruined. I am in the process of scheduling a concrete overlay on my front steps with Redefined Coatings. Fantastic job and a pleasure to work with. Would highly recommend.
