When it comes down to it, if you don’t want to have epoxy as your main flooring system, there are still ways that the flooring system can benefit whatever flooring you choose to use. For example, there is a variation of epoxy known as the vapor lock epoxy. Vapor lock epoxies are most commonly used in moist areas that require the service of waterproofing to keep the flooring above dry and usable. Another form of epoxy base coat is the anti-static epoxy base. This variation is commonly used in data houses, server rooms, and technology manufacturing plants for its nonconductive properties.
Now that you know about the most common types of epoxy flooring systems, its time to make the decision of choosing whether to DIY your system or bring in outside help. In our experience, the extra cost of using a contractor gives you extra assurance for the future as contractors offer warranties, high-quality materials and the know-how of how to properly install epoxy. But, the choice is up to you and all we can say is good luck!
