Epoxy Coatings

 

Epoxy concrete coatings provide a wear resistant and chemical resistant surface for concrete floors. They are tough, long-lasting, and will increase the durability and life of your business' concrete floor. This type of flooring is impact and abrasion resistant, which means that you can have as much foot traffic as you like without worrying about damage to your floor. If you have a warehouse this is particularly convenient because it means that the floor will be able to better withstand machinery and cargo.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A few other benefits of using epoxy coatings for your business' concrete floor are:

  • Moisture and stain resistant

  • Professional and high class appearance

  • Easy to clean

  • Resurfaces your floor

  • Easy preparation

  • Protects from allergens

Polished Concrete

 

Polished concrete has a high-gloss finish that is achieved when specific floor polishers fitted with diamond embedded abrasive disks are used to grind down floor surfaces to desired levels of smoothness and shine. This surface is very low-maintenance and is often used by businesses and retailers alike. Polishing your concrete floor increases its density, which in turn makes it hard and more durable. It also improves its resistance to abrasion, its impact strength, and its thermal conductivity. All of this means that your floor will be much more durable and have a longer life expectancy.

 

 

 

Polished concrete floors typically hold up better and longer. In high traffic areas, such as hallways and corridors, scuffmarks and abrasions can wear down the floor. Because of this, choosing to use polished concrete will increase your floors lifespan and will decrease the amount of money you have to spend on fixing it. It also only needs to be refinished every 5-10 years, which is an easy and quick process.

 

 

A few other benefits of using polished concrete  for your business' concrete floor are:

  • Non-combustible

  • Reflective

  • Aesthetics

  • Environmentally friendly
