Epoxy basement flooring contains various polymers that create extremely strong surfaces once they settle. If you are looking for durability for your new basement flooring, epoxy basement flooring is perfect for you. In fact, this is the ideal option for sealing and protecting concrete flooring in Ohio.
Most notably, epoxy coatings are capable of withstanding various forms of wear and tear for years at a time. OGI epoxy floor coatings consist of polyaspartic polyurea, ensuring the utmost protection. Whether heavy impacts or corrosive chemicals, epoxy basement flooring will protect the underlying substrate from incoming damage. As a result, your flooring will look better and last longer without the need for frequent repairs and maintenance.
4 reasons to add epoxy flooring to your basement
1. Superior moisture protection
Epoxy basement floor coatings function as a moisture barrier that protects concrete basement floors from moisture. Moisture damage is one of the most common forms of damage for Ohio basement floors. Issues like flooding, mold, and mildew can cause nearly irreparable damage and often lead to full floor replacements. Therefore, it is crucial to proactively protect your flooring from incoming moisture.
Additionally, epoxy is not susceptible to deformation and warping like wood surfaces. In fact, epoxy floor coating systems will maintain their shape for years once they settle into the concrete. So, you will not have to constantly stress about the moisture levels and ventilation in your basement like you would with hardwood floors.
2. Epoxy basement flooring is easier to clean
Cleaning is always a concern when deciding upon flooring in your home. Flooring that soaks up stains can other debris require rigorous, frequent cleaning that will have you spending more money over time. With epoxy, however, you can make cleaning much less of a chore.
Epoxy floor coatings prevent dirt, dust, water, and stains from penetrating the flooring, so they can more easily be mopped or vacuumed. Furthermore, epoxy flooring makes cleaning safer. OGI epoxy floor coatings are slip-resistant, so you do not have to worry about falling while you are trying to clean your floor. Most importantly, the minimal maintenance requirements mean your new floor keeps its visually stunning finish with half the effort.
3. Exceptional strength, durability, and longevity
