Epoxy floor coatings have emerged as a popular solution to protect concrete floors in both homes and commercial spaces. In addition to providing added durability to concrete surfaces, epoxy floor coatings bring enhanced aesthetic appeal. Whether they’re applied to an indoor floor or a backyard patio, epoxy can elevate any space.
American Town Painting offers services that can improve all the surfaces of your home or business. From walls to floors, our team has you covered.
What Are Epoxy Floors?
Epoxy floor coatings utilize a special type of resin to protect the concrete underneath. A properly applied coating makes the floor easier to clean, prevents damage to the concrete, and provides a safer space to live and work in.
While epoxy floor coatings are popular for garages, they have a wide range of applications, including pavers, basements, hospital floors, brick, or other exposed floors in need of revitalization.
How Can I Benefit From A Floor Coating?
The biggest reason to implement an epoxy floor is to add durability to your floors, helping the concrete resist cracking or chipping. This is important for public places like medical clinics, shopping centers, and restaurants due to the high volume of people who come through each day.
Another benefit of epoxy floors for homes or busy commercial spaces is the slip resistance they provide. The grit of epoxy floors doesn’t affect the smooth look of the coating, but it helps prevent injuries from slips and falls. Epoxy floors can even be slip-resistant when wet, especially if the coating and grit are applied by a professional.
Additional benefits of epoxy floors include:
- Protect concrete from chemicals and stains
- Improve the aesthetics of the space
- Easy to clean and maintain
- Impact resistance
- Wide variety of colors and designs
- Great light reflection to make your space feel bigger
Our Epoxy Installation Process
How does American Town Painting apply an epoxy floor coating to your home or business? Our team takes the process of epoxy application seriously, transforming your concrete floor within just a few days. These coatings are crucial to your protection, so we ensure that the application is of the utmost quality.
Proper grinding and preparation should be performed before applying a floor coating. After grinding the surface, it’s crucial to clean it, as any dust left on the floor will affect how the epoxy adheres to the concrete.
Certain health hazards can come during the application and drying processes. To protect the nose and eyes while applying an epoxy coating, personal protective equipment, including masks or safety goggles, is essential. When you opt to have your epoxy coating done by specially trained professionals, you can keep yourself and your family safe from these potential risks.

We offer a range of natural colors for a more subtle transformation, in addition to bolder colors to help your home or business stand out. The coating mixture can include a custom blend of paint flakes, quartz, or glitter to create eye-catching details.

Having the freedom to customize your concrete floor will help you love your garage, basement, or commercial space again, transforming neglected areas into more functional, aesthetically pleasing spaces.
Tips For Maintaining Your Epoxy Floors
Once a floor coating is applied, it will need to be maintained if you want it to remain durable. Keeping the floor clean is the best way to keep your epoxy floor looking brand new. Epoxy floors are not immune to cracking or chipping, but if you keep them clean and free from chemicals, they will stay pristine.
Here are some additional tips to keep your concrete floor in top condition:
- Sweep or mop regularly
- Clean up spills promptly
- Use warm water and mild detergent to clean the coating
- Avoid harsh chemicals or abrasive tools around the floor
- Use a shop vacuum with a soft brush to clean up dirt
- Avoid parking hot tires on your epoxy floor
- Keep the epoxy floor as dry as possible
