What Is Epoxy Floor Coating?
Epoxy is a strong material made from synthetic polymers that forms a plastic-like surface. Epoxy floor coatings are usually two-part solvent-based mixtures rather than a single component and consist of a resin part and a hardener.
Epoxy floor coatings are applied to cover a porous concrete floor, such as a basement floor, to create a smooth surface and protect the concrete from stains, moisture, and even minor-to-moderate impacts.
Types of Epoxy Coatings for Concrete Basement Flooring
Epoxy basement coatings are ideal because they help seal moisture out, unlike carpets and other floor coverings that may encourage mold and bacteria to grow. Epoxy basement floors are also easy to clean and maintain.
Epoxy flooring coatings may be:
If your concrete basement flooring is in good condition and you want to retain the natural look, clear epoxy is the way to go. It enhances the natural look of the concrete while protecting the surface from stains and wear.
Metallic epoxy offers a modern look in a range of finishes and colors to fit any basement décor. If you’ve finished your basement as a family room or added a kitchen or bar area, a metallic epoxy floor coating is a stylish choice.

Advantages of Waterproof Basement Flooring Coatings
Basement flooring always sees a lot of moisture, even if it’s are well-sealed. This can cause carpets and other floor coverings to feel constantly damp. When floor coverings never dry out, they become an ideal environment for mold, mildew, and bacteria to grow.
Epoxy is an ideal form of waterproof basement flooring that seals moisture out, both interior and exterior. Epoxy can also cope with a range of humidity levels.
Easy to Clean
Whether your basement is an extension of your home’s living space or a workshop area, keeping the floor clean is easy with an epoxy floor coating. The surface is smooth, so dirt and dust may be swept or vacuumed up fast, and wet messes mopped up quickly. Epoxy doesn’t require specialized cleaners either; you can clean any grubbiness with a dilute solution of hot water and ammonia.
Strength and Durability
Epoxy flooring stands up to high traffic and regular use—even heavy wear and tear from moving furniture around leaves no lasting effect on this durable floor coating. Once we complete your basement epoxy flooring installation, you won’t need to replace or even repair it for a long time.
From simple, brilliant flooring to decorator colors and patterns, an epoxy floor offers more visual appeal than plain concrete. There are many styles and colors available so that you can customize the look of your space.
Fire and Shock Resistance
Epoxy floor coatings are highly resistant to damage from fire and resistant to conducting electrical current. This makes epoxy flooring ideal for finishing a basement workshop or craft room where you will use electrical equipment.
Epoxy flooring is relatively inexpensive, even when you factor in the costs of maintenance and repairs, which are minimal. The overall price for an epoxy basement floor is very affordable.
Concrete Basement Flooring Resurfacing and Coatings
At Premier Concrete Coatings, we bring all our experience and skill to bear for every basement flooring installation, beginning with an evaluation of your basement. We talk with you at length, assessing what you need and want for your basement space and helping you choose the type of epoxy flooring you want.
We begin the installation process by prepping the concrete floor, thoroughly cleaning all the dirt and debris from the surface. Then we smooth the surface, grinding out any rough patches or unevenness so that the new epoxy coating lays evenly.
After cleaning, grinding, and sweeping any debris away, we fill in cracks or divots in the concrete floor surface. We also check for levelness to ensure that the epoxy lays out even when it is applied.
Once the surface is dry and ready, we apply the epoxy basecoat with a paint roller. The first coat fills in the pores of the concrete surface, smoothing it further in preparation for the coats of paint to come. After applying the basecoat, we add color flakes and leave it to cure.
Once the basecoat has cured, we apply more layers of epoxy, building up the finish as we craft the unique look you chose during the planning stages. Once it has all cured completely, we scrape the surface to ensure it is as flat and seamless as possible and vacuum any debris.
Then, a final sealing coat is applied to finish the floor, protecting it from stains and moisture and giving it a glossy shine.
