Factors to Consider When Choosing Epoxy Flooring For Your Brewery

Choosing the right flooring system can be hard. However, it doesn’t need to be! When you are in the planning phases of building your brewery you need to take in these factors when deciding on an epoxy flooring system.

Usage: Every brewery, whether home or commercial has different levels of usage. If you are building a home brewery in your garage, basement, or outdoor house we recommend using a 2 layer coating system which is ideal for smaller home breweries. Home breweries may face less harsh chemical in the brewing process. If you’re building a commercial brewery you should consider using a 2 or 3 layer coating system that has a chemical resistant top coat.

Budget: Depending on what your budget is this can big a factor when deciding what type of flooring system you want to purchase. It is always recommended that you invest heavily in this part of the project so you don’t have floor issue down the road. Brew Floors flooring system start at $0.99 per square foot and go up to $5.50 square foot.

Current Floor Condition: There are many different types of floor conditions. There are new or unpainted/unsealed concrete, sealed floors, oily/greasy floors, painted concrete, and drains and open areas. All of these floor conditions require different levels of floor preparation.
