Epoxy Flooring

Epoxy flooring is the perfect flooring solution for commercial and industrial environments, where the floor needs to withstand heavy foot and machine traffic, chemicals, spills, and extreme temperatures. Epoxy flooring has not only become popular in commercial and industrial spaces, but it’s also gaining popularity for use in residential areas such as garages. Galvenston Polished Concrete and Staining Company is an expert at installing epoxy floors. If you have been considering epoxy flooring, here is everything you need to know.

What is an

Epoxy flooring

An Epoxy flooring is a two-part mixture consisting of resin and hardener. Epoxy coatings can be placed over concrete, wood, tile, or other floor types to create an epoxy floor. When epoxy is placed over a floor, the chemical reaction creates a bond that forms a plastic material that is durable and hard. Epoxy floors are seamless and have a shiny appearance. Their seamless nature means they cant trap dirt, dust, or other pathogens like other floors that have cracks or joints do.

Benefits of

Epoxy Floors

Epoxy floors provide users with several advantages. Many persons prefer epoxy flooring because of its durability and ease of maintenance. The major benefits of epoxy floors include:


Epoxy floors can withstand whatever is thrown at them without corroding or peeling over the years. This includes heavy machine and foot traffic, chemical spills, heat, and shock. This makes it ideal for industrial and commercial areas, as well as residential areas such as the garage.

Seamless Surface and Easy to Maintain

Epoxy floors are seamless; they don’t have cracks or joints. Just imagine one whole giant floor in place. This makes it easy for them to clean and maintain. The normal routine cleaning would just be appropriate. So, maintenance cost is very low.


You will think the numerous benefits of epoxy floors will make them expensive. Far from it. Epoxy floors are relatively cheap compared to other flooring options like tiles, vinyl, and wood. Plus, considering their strength and durability, they save you the cost of maintenance upfront.


That shiny and glossy appearance of epoxy floors make them perfect for just about any space - office building, hotel lobbies, gyms, etc


Epoxy floors are 3x stronger than concrete! I bet you didn’t see that coming. This is why they can withstand heavy machinery and extreme temperatures, and still last long over the years.


Like every other flooring option, epoxy floors can be slippery when wet. However, when an anti-slip coating is installed alongside, this takes the concern about accidents and slips away. In addition, since they are anti-scratch and crack resistant, this makes them safe for heavy foot and machine traffic.

Epoxy Flake Floors

Metallic Epoxy Floors

Metallic epoxy floors give a 3D look as a result of the light the metallic pigments reflect at different angles. They are absolutely stunning and eye-catchy.

Our 6-Step

Concrete Polishing Process

At Galvenston Polished Concrete and Staining Company, our epoxy flooring process includes:
Step 1

Prepare and clean the concrete surface.

We do this to ensure, dust, dirt, adhesive, or whatever debris is removed from the surface. We also use a dust-free diamond grinder to prep the entire floor.

Step 2

Prime the floor with an epoxy primer

This will make the epoxy adhere more to the floor, and also ensures durability.

Step 3

Filling of holes and cracks

We fill up visible holes and cracks with epoxy before the first coating

Step 4

Application of the first coat of epoxy paint

We apply a thoroughly mixed epoxy solution to the entire floor.

Step 5

Grinding and relayering of the surface

After the first coating, we lookout for cracks, dust, and other irregularities on the floor. Once found, we grind and layer the surface again to give it a smoother look.

Step 6

Application of the final coat of epoxy paint.

Once we are satisfied with step 5, we go on to apply the final coat of epoxy. Once the floor is dry, the result is your shiny and durable epoxy floor.
