5 reasons to install epoxy basement flooring with OGI
Protect your concrete slab from serious moisture damage:
Bare concrete basement floors are prone to moisture damage, so it is important to proactively protect your floor. In fact, if moisture issues are left untreated, they can often lead to complete flooring replacements to resolve. Once our high-strength epoxy bonds with your floor, it forms an impermeable surface that functions as a moisture barrier. So, you can prevent flooding, mold, and mildew from damaging your floor and avoid costly repairs and replacements entirely.
Another advantage of OGI epoxy is the elimination of issues such as deformation as warping, which occur often in hardwood flooring. Our high-quality epoxy flooring materials will ensure your flooring maintains its shape for years after installation, and you will not have to regularly check your basement’s moisture levels to prevent warping.
Slip-resistant surface makes cleaning safe and easy:
One of the most important aspects to consider when installing flooring is maintenance. Having a beautiful new floor is nice, but if you have to spend more time cleaning it than enjoying it, then is it really worth your money? OGI flooring is designed to prevent dirt, dust, water, and stains from sinking into your floor and keep spills from leaving a lasting mark. Most notably, the impermeable, slip-resistant surface makes cleaning your floor safe and easy to clean.
OGI epoxy materials offer exceptional strength and longevity with low maintenance requirements:
When you install a new basement floor, you want it to last as long as possible. So, here at OGI, we design our basement flooring solutions to offer superior strength and longevity. In fact, we design our epoxy flooring for optimal performance in Ohio’s specific climate.

Avoid these basement flooring ideas!
Natural stone flooring
Natural stone flooring companies advertise their solutions as incredibly strong and long-lasting with minimal maintenance and prices as low as 99 cents per square foot. However, these companies often refrain from mentioning natural stone flooring’s many issues that will require you to spend more than you expect.
Natural stone is vulnerable to many forms of wear and tear in contrast to claims of exceptional durability. In fact, these issues will take effect quickly and require costly maintenance and repairs. Most notably, many companies will require you to perform repairs directly through their company or risk losing your warranty. As a result, you will be stuck paying for expensive maintenance for flooring that was meant to be a budgetary solution.
DIY paint and epoxy kits
DIY kits are another option we suggest avoiding. These products are incredibly popular among homeowners, as they can be found at any home improvement or hardware stores with low pricing. However, in this case, the pricing reflects the quality of the products. In fact, DIY epoxy and paint kits will offer little to no protection for your concrete floor and cannot compare to industrial-grade epoxy installed by professionals.
The goal of DIY is to reduce material costs and cut out the middleman to save money overall. Unfortunately, low-quality DIY materials will quickly form defects and often require full replacements within a year of the original installation. So, you will have to waste money reapplying products that are inevitably going to breakdown. Avoid these unnecessary costs with the help of professional basement flooring installation services and superior epoxy materials from OGI.
