Pros and Cons of Epoxy Aggregate Flooring

Generally, epoxy aggregate flooring can be found in garages, work rooms and perhaps even areas where people gather for social activities. This flooring usually has a very polished glossy look and if taken care of, can be quite attractive even for a garage floor. Some people love it and some people hate it. Here are the pros and cons:

Pros of Epoxy Aggregate Flooring

One of the things that most people like about this type of flooring is that not much sticks to it, making it easier to clean up a mess. Another reason why some prefer this type of flooring over others is that it is durable as long as it has been applied properly. This type of flooring should and could last for many, many years with proper care.

Cons of Epoxy Aggregate Flooring

If you pick a darker shade, it has more hardeners in it than the lighter shades. The darker ones tend to have an ammonia smell after applying. This flooring is also very sensitive and needs to be installed exactly according to directions. If not allowed to dry properly, which takes several days, the epoxy aggregate flooring will not last as long as it should.

As long as you follow the instructions exactly, you should get a great deal of use out of your epoxy aggregate flooring.
