A lot of people don’t know how to choose between epoxy flooring and polished concrete flooring. To make the right choice, you need to know the benefits of each.
We’ve compiled a list of them to help you make a better and informed decision.
What’s Epoxy Flooring?
Epoxy flooring, also known as solid surface flooring, is a type of resilient epoxy resin-based material with a textured or patterned finish that is used for floor coverings.
Benefits of Epoxy
With a regular vinyl or tile, there’s always the risk of punctures, cracks, or spills damaging your floor. This isn’t the case with epoxy flooring since the material is more durable.
Another reason to choose epoxy flooring is that it’s very easy to install and maintain. With the tiles being made with resin, it only requires three basic steps—installing, cleaning, and drying.
Epoxy floors are very easy to clean. You can use a vacuum cleaner or a mop for regular cleaning to maintain the floor’s shine without anything additional.
What’s Polished Concrete Flooring?
Polished concrete flooring consists of sanded, levelled concrete that is then polished with liquid chemicals. This gives the appearance of marble or wood from afar.
Benefits of Polished Concrete
The natural look
Most people prefer the look of polished concrete over tiles or wood floors—and for a good reason. These floors are visually appealing, and they’re as hardwearing as the real thing. They have a good lifespan, taking only about five to seven years before they start to look aged.
Resistant to stains and spills
Polished concrete floors are a little harder to stain than other floors, but it’s not impossible. You’ll need to utilize a cleaning product like vinegar to get stains out, which should do the job after soaking up any spills or drips on the surface.
Durable and easy to install
Since concrete is made from sand, it can withstand a lot of wear and tear, and this type of flooring can be installed easily and affordably.
