What is the difference between an epoxy floor and a cement screed floor?

Epoxy is a synthetic polymer which can be coloured and applied as a decorative floor finish. Because polymers are synthetic they do not breathe and can trap moisture and delaminate. They are more even in colour and have a ‘flat’ appearance.

Cement based flooring is a natural, greener option for flooring which allows for breathability. The colour penetrates the cement up to about 2mm and cannot be walked off.
