Epoxy Vs Tile: Why Epoxy Is the answer
You might be thinking about redoing your floors and wondering about the options that are currently available on the market. Epoxy and tiles are the most popular options. Both have their own advantages and disadvantages and it is important to explore them before making a decision.
Epoxy flooring is made from resin. As a result, it is resistant to a number of substances that would easily damage the floors. Such substances include water, heavy items, and normal wear and tear. This makes it an excellent choice for garage flooring because of the constant exposure of the surface to the elements.

Commercial Epoxy Flooring Solutions
Epoxy flooring has been shown to last for a long time compared to other flooring options. If the installation is done correctly, epoxy floors can last for decades with peeling or cracking. Because of its durability, it is also a popular option for commercial flooring.
One of the reasons why epoxy is popular with garage doors is because it is maintenance-free. You don’t have to spend a lot on repairs and maintenance once the installation is done. It will withstand the weight of vehicles without any problems.
Common epoxy floors:
Tile flooring will come in a variety of options such as ceramic and tile. As much there will be benefits to using different tile flooring options, the benefits can’t be compared to epoxy flooring. There are some disadvantages to using tile tiles as a flooring option. One of the disadvantages is that is breaks easily. This will not be ideal for a garage floor because of the traffic that is experienced. Another disadvantage is that the grout will have to be cleaned on a regular which can be time-consuming for someone that is looking for a maintenance-free solution.
Having provided an overview of the two flooring options, we’re going to analyze how they compare against some certain variables. There are a couple of reasons why epoxy is the better flooring option:
Water on the floor of the garage is a common occurrence. It should be noted that ceramic tiles are not water-resistant. The joints provide room for water to seep inside which will a breeding ground for all sorts of bacteria. With epoxy flooring, water can’t penetrate the surface. As a result, it will provide protection against water and other fluids that are found in a garage.
Tiles can’t withstand harsh chemical reactions. The garage floor is constantly exposed to different kinds of fluids. It is possible to offer a temporary solution by cleaning the chemicals but the long-term effects will be devastating. Epoxy floors can last for decades without signs of chipping, cracking and discoloration. You also don’t have to worry about regular cleaning compared to tile flooring.
Tiles will look good when they’re freshly installed. The aesthetics will go away when wear and tear sets in. Dirt will start accumulating and it will be tough trying to do the cleaning. Epoxy floors don’t have joints which eliminate the chance of bacterial growth.
Easy To Clean
Ceramic tiles will only be easy to clean in the beginning. The challenge will set in when there is grout build up along the lines. You might have to hire a professional to help with the cleaning. Epoxy floors have a smooth finish and it is easy to clean even when there is grease or liquid stain on the garage floor.
Cleaning ceramic tiles will require chemical detergents which will be harmful to the environment. With Epoxy floors, there is a resin coating which will not dissolve over a long period of time. There will be no need for harsh chemicals for cleaning as a result.
Ceramic tiles are susceptible to scratches from shoe marks and garage traffic. This will reduce the lifespan of the tiles and you might find yourself having to replace them because they’re unsightly. Epoxy is scratch resistance and your garage floor will always be shining.
From the comparison, it is easy to establish that epoxy is the better flooring solution because it provides durability and you don’t have to worry about constant maintenance.
