Pros and Cons of an Epoxy Floor

Updated: Mar 4

Not everyone gets as excited about concrete floor coatings as we do, but nobody can argue with the results. An epoxy floor lasts longer, maintains its good looks, and is easier to keep tidy than any other floor covering you might be considering.


Even still, we understand that not everyone will decide that a premium epoxy floor coating is right for them. If you decide to lay down rubber mats or let your floors continue to wear down, remember why epoxy floors are worth it for an attractive, long-lasting solution.

Epoxy Floor Advantages

Style and function go hand-in-hand with epoxy floors. Trusted for industrial floors, commercial kitchens, hospitals, and auto shops, an epoxy floor coating also makes an attractive choice for home renovations, patios, outdoor living spaces, and retail showrooms.


The top reasons why homeowners and businesses choose epoxy floors:

Built strong to last long.

Epoxy floors are extremely resistant to chipping, peeling, stains, UV fading, and the weight and force of activities in a garage or business.

Low maintenance, low stress.

Easily wipe up spills, broom away dirt, and clean Ecoshield's Eco Clean. The chemical resistance means that most common cleaners won’t damage or dull the surface.

Anti-slip resistance.

Epoxy floors embrace moisture rather than leaving dangerous pools. An anti-skid ingredient makes them safe for swimming pool decks, retail floors, kitchens, and factories.

Look good, feel good.

From custom colour chips to mirrored metallic epoxy floors, there’s a perfect colour and texture whether you’re building a showroom or finishing your basement with your favorite sports team’s colors.

Splurge now, save later.

Subtract the cost of all those future coating replacements or concrete resurfacing that you won’t have to do, and epoxy floors might just be your most affordable option in the long run.


Drawbacks of Epoxy Floors

Now for some real talk about the disadvantages of epoxy floors. For starters, the long lifespan might not be desirable if you think you’ll change your mind about the colour later. We’re not kidding when we say that epoxy floors bond to concrete to form a super-strength surface; you would need to grind the epoxy off to get rid of it.


The most common reason some people choose not to install an epoxy floor is simply that they won’t be in their home or business much longer. Unless you’re upgrading the floor to impress a future buyer, you might not want to make the investment.


Also, note that epoxy floors take a few days to adhere and cure. Although we can work around your schedule, you might need to make arrangements for the space to be briefly unavailable.
