When you look to spend some cash on a new epoxy flooring system either for residential or commercial applications you get faced with a stack of options.

Do you go full flake seamless, plain colour or metallic?
Do you use polyurethane or polyaspartic?
Do you engage a contractor or attempt it yourself?

What’s the difference between epoxy and epoxy paint and the list of questions goes on and on. But probably the most common question I get asked, and the one that creates the most confusion, is “What’s the difference between a Same-Day and a 5 Day System?”

So I wanted to lay out the facts on the different systems and their characteristics, features and benefit in the hope this helps make your info-gathering mission a little easier.
