5 Pros and Cons of Epoxy floor coating

Almost every type of flooring has some disadvantage or the other. An excellent choice for a variety of needs, epoxy flooring systems seem to have fewer drawbacks and more benefits than other flooring systems. It is important to examine both the benefits and the drawbacks before deciding if Epoxy flooring is the solution you are looking for. Let’s start with the pros.

Epoxy flooring Singapore is one of the most durable concrete floor solutions; it lasts several decades if maintained accordingly. It does not peel or crack and it protects the underlying concrete from moisture, grease, stains and cracks.

However, it is not only protective; it also has got the looks. Compared to an average garage floor, epoxy floors are bright and professional. Their appearance alone makes them enticing to use. Furthermore Epoxy flooring is:

  1. Available in many colours and patterns
  2. Increases brightness of the area by 200%
  3. The per square meter price is hard to beat
  4. It can be installed directly over concrete and other flooring types
  5. Epoxy flooring lasts longer than many other types of flooring.

There are however, also some disadvantages you should be aware of. The cons:

  • Epoxy flooring system’s cannot withstand UV radiation, therefor they are ideal only for interior use
  • Cracks can develop and chipping is a very common issue. So if you drop heavy items on the floor, it may require repair afterwards
  • This flooring system becomes very slippery when wet
  • A significant amount of effort goes into applying it on an existing floor
  • It takes several days to dry properly. Additionally, the first coat of epoxy must dry completely before adding the next coat.

However, you can overcome all the application related cons by getting the job done by a contractor.

Residential epoxy flooring

One of the best ways to beautify your home without breaking the bank is to address your floors. Flooring upgrades are one of the most efficient and cost effective ways to improve your home’s value.  With residential epoxy flooring you create the perfect look for your garage, basement, outdoor patios or any other area you are looking to beautify. You can even apply it over ugly looking tiles.

Be aware: You need to account for dust, temperature, humidity, quality of substrate and drying time for that seamless result. Even the presence of insects can create problems on the final surface! In an industrial area, the aesthetic appearance does not matter that greatly.  But (understandably) in your living room it does! Applying a residential epoxy flooring system is therefor not often the ideal choice for residential areas..

Prices range from 50,- to 100,- SGD for a paint bucket if you are willing to apply it yourself. Prices for professional epoxy flooring service start from 60,- SGD per square meter.  Each project is of course unique and many factors determine the painting system required, preparation necessities and finish for best protection without compromising the aesthetics.

A residential epoxy flooring system will also need a slightly porous and cleaned surface to adhere properly. It is important to patch and repair all major cracks and chips before applying the epoxy flooring system. A professional can do this for you, but this will of course add to the total cost.
