Epoxy flooring for basements: The smart choice for a durable floor
Hard-wearing, durable flooring is a key requirement for homeowners looking to get years of service from their basement floor. Everlast® Epoxy flooring for basements is fast becoming an increasingly popular flooring choice for basements in homes across the United States, and there’s a few reasons why.
Maximize your living space
Basements are no longer simply a dark room that is only used for storage. With a little imagination, they can be utilized as a family den, home theater, gym, or playroom.
The key to creating an extension of your living space is to start from the ground and work up, choosing a hard-wearing floor that will serve your family’s needs for decades to come.
A durable basement flooring choice
No one wants to repair their basement floor just a few years after it has been installed, and if you choose to go with epoxy flooring, you won’t have to.
Unlike other flooring solutions—such as carpet, tiles, or rubberized floors, all of which can chip or show signs of wear soon after installation—epoxy flooring installed in basements will provide years of use without causing you to worry about your floor failing or developing wear patterns.
Antimicrobial properties to protect your flooring
The Everlast® Epoxy flooring system contains an integral antimicrobial component designed to provide your floor with ongoing protection against bacteria, making your basement a safe and pleasant place in which to spend time.
Another health benefit of an epoxy flooring system is that the surface is a seamless solution, leaving no joints, cracks, or spaces for microorganisms or dirt to hide in. Because there are no joints, the floor is nonporous, which means spills will remain on the surface and won’t soak into the substrate, which is what often causes long-term damage and bad odors.
Fast and easy to clean and maintain
Life is too short to be stuck cleaning basement floors. Thankfully, with an epoxy resin system, there is no backbreaking scrubbing or buffing required! If you are looking for a floor that requires very little time and effort to clean, then an epoxy system is a smart choice.
Dust and debris can be simply vacuumed away, and because the flooring is impermeable, fluids can be wiped away with a cloth or a squeegee.
A slip-resistant basement floor
Keeping your family safe is a high priority, and Everlast® Epoxy floors have a textured, slip-resistant surface to minimize the risk of skids or falls. Our floors benefit from non-slip properties thanks to the marble chips used in the manufacturing process.
However you choose to utilize your basement, be it a gym where you can work out in safety, or a playroom where spilt juice or paint from messy play is a reality, epoxy flooring will help reduce the risks of slips.
Epoxy flooring systems are fast to install
Your basement is an integral part of family life, so waiting for a new flooring system to be installed, cured, and ready for use can be very inconvenient.
Everlast® Epoxy is fast and easy to install, as it’s pourable, trowelable, and can be installed over almost all types of existing flooring. It can also be ready to walk on in less than 24 hours, which means there is hardly any disruption to family life.
Another advantage of installing an Everlast® Epoxy flooring is that our resin contains no solvents that emit harmful fumes, which means there will be no unpleasant odors penetrating your home.
