As your family continues to grow or you find yourself in need of a den, mancave, spare bedroom, home office, or multipurpose space—finishing your basement is likely on your mind. Insulating the ceiling and walls, adding a window or two for natural light, and selecting flooring are all on your list of things to do. Here are a few reasons why epoxy flooring is a top pick for basement floors.
Epoxy Is Waterproof
Basements are an area of the home prone to flooding and leaks. If you install wood, carpet, or tile, and have a leak in your basement the likelihood of having to replace your flooring after a flood or leak is high. While concrete wicks moisture when left unsealed, an epoxy coating stops wicking moisture and provides a waterproof coating. This makes remediating water fast and easy and reduces the growth of bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungus. As an added bonus, epoxy is less expensive to install than most other flooring options. You can always add area rugs on top for warmth and style. View some of our finished projects here!
It Holds Back Radon Gas
Being in constant contact with the ground beneath there is a risk of radon emissions. Whether you plan to finish your basement or not, consider an epoxy coating to hold back radon gas. With or without an epoxy coating, add a radon detector to at least your basement to be alerted of radon gas as soon as it becomes problematic.
Epoxy Coatings Are Versatile
Whether you simply want your basement to feel more inviting when you need to pop down to do laundry or access storage, or you want to transition it to a space you utilize daily—epoxy floor paint is your most versatile flooring option. You have a variety of coating options to choose from in endless colors, combinations, and artistic application techniques. Your new coating will be stylized, durable, and slip, scratch, and impact resistant. We mentioned waterproof earlier, but epoxy is also chemical and stainproof.
