Epoxy: The hidden gem of basement flooring options

It seems like every Spring, the heavy rains cause havoc in basements throughout Northeast Johnson County. The rain causes flash floods and our high moisture table leaks into basements which usually ruins or damages the existing carpeting, tile, or laminate. The cycle repeats itself for most homeowners as they replace the wet carpet with more carpet and never find a permanent solution for foundations leaking onto their basement flooring.

Most homeowners do not realize that there is a cost-effective, permanent, and cosmetically beautiful solution that will provide years of durable use without the bother of maintainence every time a big rain occurs. Additionally-there are people that avoid their basement due to it’s dingy & drab appearance regardless of having wetness. This solution to both scenarios is a professionally installed Epoxy Flooring System.

Prairie Village-based, Granite Garage Floors changes their focus during the winter months on installing the same, durable epoxy flooring systems in area basements that they also install all-year long on Garages. The company “Upgrades” concrete floors throughout the KC metro as a durable, easy-to-clean, and beautiful alternative to bare concrete, tile, or carpeting. Greg Slicker, the owner of Granite Garage Floors also touts the functionality of his floors in area basements. “Like many folks who live in Old Leawood, PV, and the older parts of town -we live in an older home that has a stone foundation and grew tired of contemplating the replacement of our carpet each Spring”. Slicker goes on to say “Not only the wet carpet, but also the floor stains from our kids, dogs, and spills were really making our entire basement look worse and worse”.
