One of the most common questions we are often asked is – Are Epoxy Floors the same as polished concrete floors? The short answer is no! Whilst from a distance both types of floors can look rather similar and are concrete based, the method used to achieve the finish is not the same.
So, how does the process differ and which one is a better flooring option?
Let’s have a look at how polished concrete and epoxy flooring is actually carried out.
Polished concrete is not a product that is simply installed. It is a process of grinding and polishing an individual concrete floor into progressively finer grits. Depending on the original surface conditions, how elaborate the decorative finish is to be – in terms of how much stone exposure will be visible, and the resulting gloss level required; the process can become rather lengthy, with many steps involved. Generally, it is very time and manpower intensive. Hence the high price tag that goes along with it.
Epoxy Flooring is a much more efficient and increasingly popular way to achieve the same resulting decorative, hard-wearing, and low maintenance floor finish. Epoxy flake flooring is highly versatile and can be easily installed on any concrete surface. Professionally installed Epoxy flake floors are not only durable, they are also water, oil and stain resistant, hygienic, and provide lustre and beauty in any room or location. The best thing is, you save money by paying almost half the price for the same floor!
