What Type of Floor Should Put in My Greenhouse? | Epoxy v. Polished Concrete

Are you already starting to think about next spring? What about getting a head start on the growing season with a backyard greenhouse? If so, now is an excellent time to start thinking about what kind of floor to have installed. This blog will discuss using both epoxy flooring and polished concrete flooring in a backyard greenhouse.

Polished Concrete Flooring for Greenhouses

By far, the most common type of floor for greenhouses is polished concrete. Polished concrete flooring is beautiful, strong, and is resistant to be being worn down by the environment of a greenhouse. Some people express concern about drainage with a polished concrete floor in a greenhouse. However, this is very easily addressed. When pouring the concrete slab, it is simply set at a very slight slope to allow for excess water leftover from irrigation to runoff. 

Epoxy Flooring for Greenhouses

Another option for greenhouse flooring, and one that is becoming increasingly popular, is epoxy flooring. Similar to a polished concrete floor, epoxy flooring is incredibly strong and resistant to damage. Epoxy flooring is also made with a base of concrete. Some of the advantages of epoxy flooring include:

  • Extreme toughness
  • Nearly limitless design, color, and texture options
  • Completely waterproof and easy to clean
