Why choose epoxy with vinyl flakes for my subfloor?

Applying an epoxy coating in a basement can be an excellent solution to many common problems associated with concrete floors. Here’s how epoxy coating can be an effective solution for improving your basement:

  1. Moisture resistance: Epoxy coatings are moisture-resistant, making them ideal for basements prone to moisture problems. The epoxy forms an impermeable barrier that prevents moisture from penetrating the concrete, reducing the risk of mould and material damage.
  2. Smooth, aesthetic finish: Epoxy coatings can be customized with a variety of colors, patterns and inlays, creating a smooth, aesthetic surface. You can choose a glossy or matte finish, depending on your preferences.

  3. Crack resistance: Epoxy can help seal existing small cracks in concrete and prevent their propagation. This helps maintain a uniform, safe surface.

  4. Easy maintenance: Epoxy coatings are easy to maintain. They are resistant to stains and common household chemicals, and are easy to clean with soap and water.

  5. Thermal comfort: The addition of our moisture-control vapour barrier under the epoxy coating improves the thermal comfort of your basement. This will help reduce the sensation of cold to the touch.

  6. Durability: Epoxy coatings are extremely durable and wear-resistant, making them suitable for intensive use. They are ideal for basements used as leisure, work or storage areas.

Epoxy with vinyl flakes application step:

  1. Surface preparation: The surface is scarified with our equipment to ensure optimum adhesion of the coating.
  2. Applying the Vapor Barrier to control humidity: Our specially designed primer is applied to the surface to obtain maximum adhesion while controlling humidity.
  3. Epoxy application: Colored epoxy is applied to the surface.
  4. Adding Vinyl Flakes: While the epoxy is still fresh, colored or plain vinyl flakes are scattered over the surface. These flakes add texture, color and aesthetic appeal to the cladding.
  5. Topcoat: Once the epoxy is dry, we apply a protective coat of clear sealer.

  • Affordable price
