      Hi Taylor, epoxy coatings can be used on a variety of concrete flooring applications. Proper prepping must be done first to ensure the floor will not fail over time. A list of flooring applications include, garages, basements, boiler rooms, stairwells, warehouses, food processing plants, airplane hangers, retail showrooms, restaurants, kitchens, breweries, and wineries. The list is virtually endless! There are special epoxy coatings for other flooring types such as wood and laminate flooring but Brew Floors does not carry these products.
