When planning a concrete floor project for your business or industrial site, you have some important questions to answer. 

Here are five things we suggest tackling as a team to be sure you make a wise investment in the best concrete flooring solutions for your facility’s unique purpose and needs.

Will You Polish Concrete?

Polished concrete is an excellent choice if you’re looking for a durable, stain-resistant, moisture-resistant, and chemical-resistant floor. 

Polishing concrete can help you meet your industry health and safety guidelines, and it makes a great impression on clients, employees, and visitors.

If you decide to polish concrete, choose a method that allows you to cover a lot of ground with equipment that can deliver excellent results.

Power troweling can cover thousands of square feet per shift, and your floors are ready to use as soon as the job is complete.

Which Coating Will You Use?

Another great option for your concrete flooring project is coating concrete with a specialized epoxy flooring system.

Epoxy coatings are incredibly versatile, with a wide range of applications and styles. The type and thickness of your coating depends on your industry requirements and any federal compliance standards you must meet.

Choosing an epoxy also depends on the volatility of your product, your manufacturing process, and the temperatures your flooring or equipment need to withstand. 

It’s very possible that your concrete flooring may require a combination of concrete polishing and epoxy coating, depending on the size of your site, the scope of your production, and the use of various rooms. 

An experienced flooring company will help you choose the most cost-effective options for your space, and they can help you prioritize and plan each phase of your concrete flooring project for maximum efficiency.

When Will You Plan the Project?

The timing of your concrete floor project can be the difference between a productive week and lots of interruptions.

Luckily you don’t have to compromise your productivity to get your concrete flooring project completed on time. You can hire a company that works during holidays and shutdowns—just make sure you schedule it far enough in advance. 

How Will You Keep It Clean?

How you clean commercial concrete flooring or industrial floors depends on the sanitation demands of your industry and how your floor is coated, polished, or treated. 

If the same company that installs your floors also scrubs your flooring, then you can rest easy knowing they understand the cleaning techniques, equipment, and products to use to improve the longevity of your floor. You can also schedule your floor cleaning along with the rest of your facility cleaning services so everything keeps running smoothly.

Who Will You Hire?

Many companies can help you tackle a concrete flooring project. But if you’re looking for a company that can:

  • Coat concrete flooring with a wide variety of finishes

  • Polish concrete flooring with a power trowel (up to 10,000 square feet per shift)

  • Clean concrete flooring (along with the rest of the floors, walls, ceilings, and equipment in your facility)

  • Keep up with painting and maintenance demands for large commercial and industrial sites year-round
