We do not live in a perfect world, and for that reason, there are some things to keep in mind with epoxy flooring.
As commercial spaces have more square footage, the the process naturally takes longer. Materials used in mixing resin has toxic fumes. These may cause irritation in the eyes, throat, and lungs. When fully cured, epoxy resin does not pose any health risk.
We ensure that everyone on our team uses professional safety protective gear, and we make sure that the room we are working in is closed off until the floor is fully hardened.
Compared to garage flooring, which can usually be ready in 24 hours, the curing time for commercial floors can take a several days, because of the larger square footage. Epoxy flooring is not a floor in itself; it is a resin coating that must be applied to existing floors only, usually concrete or steel, and in some rare cases wood.
These are not considered disadvantages, per se, more just caveats to keep in mind before and during an installation. Once the floor is ready for use, there will not be any disadvantages that will affect its long term use.
