  1. Thanks for helping me learn more about epoxy flooring. I’m glad you mentioned that these can actually have a lot of strength as well as flexibility. You said that it could be used for a lot of different applications, and I wouldn’t mind knowing some situations where this type of flooring could be good, like in production facilities or something like that.

    1. 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.

  2. I love the photo of the blue metallic epoxy! I’ve only thought of it in garages in the past. Now that you mention it, I’ve seen it in commercial kitchens and restaurants. Who knew it would work so well for a home’s interior?

    1. Hi Cody, Our products are not designed to be applied on wood as wood can crack leading to floor swelling and possible failure if water is present. The only to properly lay down epoxy over wood is by using cement boards. You would first want to caulk the joints and then prep using acid etch or diamond grinding.

    1. Hi Patience,

      We currently do not have any video tutorials on 3d Flooring. I would suggest checking YouTube as there is alot of great content to digest.

      Cheers,
