When considering flooring options in new homes, many homeowners will choose wood flooring, tiling, or laminate flooring. While these are all great options for residential flooring, there are many advantages that concrete flooring has when compared to its traditional counterparts.

Water Resistance

One of the biggest advantages that concrete has over many other conventional flooring products is that it is incredibly water and stain resistant when properly finished with a high quality seal. With epoxy flooring, spills in the kitchen can be a thing of the past. No longer will you have to worry about your flooring warping, eroding, or becoming permanently stained or damaged. Concrete floors allow users to simply wipe up any mess without having to worry about their flooring becoming damaged in the process.

Save On Heating

Contrary to widespread belief, there are other systems of heating that are just as efficient, if not more efficient than forced central air. Radiant heating is a unique method of warming up your home that utilizes a maze of heating elements underneath your concrete to emit warmth from your flooring. Since concrete is known for its impressive heat retention properties, and using radiant heating can sometimes be a more cost-effective method of keeping your home warm during those cold winter months. No longer will you feel the draft from air vents or hear your home’s furnace turn on. Radiant heating is a completely silent method of warming your home, and is incredibly efficient in maintaining optimal interior temperatures.

Unique to Your Home

The most exciting aspect that homeowners love about concrete flooring is its design versatility. While wood flooring can look very similar in many different homes, concrete is available in a number of colors, finishes, and materials to choose from. For example, you may find that your home’s epoxy flooring looks best using a reflective high gloss finish. Or maybe you are looking for more of a low profile look that can be achieved using a moderate sheen satin finish. Whatever your personal preferences may be, there is no material more diverse for meeting your needs than concrete flooring. Homeowners can even choose from various looks such as metallic, flaked, or quartz that can aid in unifying a home’s look and feel.

These are just a few of the many reasons why epoxy flooring is a contender for homeowners who are looking to achieve a contemporary look that also serves an incredible level of function.
