Why Now is an Excellent Time for Epoxy Flooring
The timing for home flooring projects, including epoxy flooring, and it’s cousin, polished or stained concrete, is at a premium just now. Here are some reasons this is an excellent time to consider epoxy flooring.
The cold weather is over, but the hot days of summer aren’t here yet. The best weather to cure epoxy is between 72 and 77 degrees. As the weather warms, we get closer to this ideal window, making this one of the two very best times of year to have epoxy flooring put in your home.
Fewer fiscal distractions
Financially this is a good time to install epoxy flooring, as well. The mad frenzy of holiday shopping is over. The worst of winter is behind us but the more massive summer electric bills aren’t in the mailbox. As a bonus, many people also use their income tax refund on home improvements, since it’s an addition to their regular income. The idea of buying something which lasts for years overrides the plan to buy a new set of tires or other short term gains.
One of the things which both concrete polishing, stained concrete, and epoxy flooring all provide is a gorgeous home improvement which enhances the living space for the inhabitants of the home. Whether it’s epoxy flooring in the garage or home office, or maybe even the front porch, the possibilities which epoxy flooring offers are endless. It doesn’t hurt that following the completion of these projects, they offer years of tough, durable flooring with easy minimal maintenance. Virtually no waxing, buffing, or grout cleaning is required, as a dust mop and occasionally damp mopping are all that is necessary.
No longer moving
The US population’s penchant for moving has declined steadily over the last two decades. Not only are they not moving between states, but they also aren’t even relocating across town. So, statistically speaking, unless a homeowner has their house on the market or is planning to sell it soon, it’s unlikely they will suddenly move. Millennials, in particular, are moving less than their older counterparts, not a trend one usually sees in the younger generation.
While housing costs continue to climb, the pace of building isn’t meeting it by any means, making a home an even better commodity than in years past, and making it a more worthy investment than ever before. Multi-home landlords who own dozens or hundreds of properties make the single-family homeowner a rare commodity. Those who do own a home are hanging onto them--as they well should. If you own a home, you’re one of a select group.
Whether you decide to have epoxy flooring, polished, or stained concrete, now is an excellent time of year to do it. If you’re considering one of these home projects, why not take the plunge and give us a call to set it up?
