How Long Will Epoxy Flooring Last?
What factors determine the lifespan of epoxy flooring?
The lifespan of epoxy flooring depends on three main factors: the type of epoxy product used, the preparation of the floor before application and the amount of wear and tear the floor endures.
How long can I expect epoxy flooring to last in a high-traffic area?
Even in high-traffic areas, high-quality epoxy flooring can last for a very long time.
For instance, in our work truck where equipment weighing around 150 kilos is loaded in and out all day, the epoxy flooring has held up really well for over 12 months.
What kind of warranty can I expect with epoxy flooring?
The warranty can vary depending on the product.
For example, the epoxy product we use at Epoxy Flooring Co comes with a massive manufacturer’s warranty. We confidently offer a 20-year warranty because we know our epoxy flooring installations are built to last.
How does epoxy flooring compare to other types of floor coatings like acrylic paint?
Epoxy flooring tends to last significantly longer than other types of coatings.
For instance, while acrylic paint might last one to two years at best and kits from the hardware store might last a few years… a high-quality epoxy product with the right preparation and installation can last for a lifetime.
