Your commercial property flooring will see a lot of wear and tear. The flooring receives a lot of traffic and your customers may not be too careful with commercial floors, (dropping things, dragging heavy carts on it, etc.) You need a resilient concrete floor that will withstand all the wear and tear, last for a long time and be easy to maintain.
As commercial properties are large, you will also want something that would be affordable but looks great. At The Floor Company, we believe that concrete is your best option. Within concrete flooring, there are several options available.
Epoxy or Polyurethane Coating
This is one of the best examples of combining beauty with function. Epoxy and polyurethane coatings are very resilient. These coatings have great chemical resistance, can be installed quickly, have the ability to bear high traffic and heavy loads, and will last for a long time.
Of the two concrete flooring options, epoxy coatings are more affordable and easier to apply. The polyurethane coating is resilient and won’t fade as easily. Regardless of which coating you choose from the two, you’re likely to see great results. The best part is that these coatings can be stained in different colour options.
These are the most common coating options but there are several others available in the market. You can talk to our concrete-flooring experts about which coating would be ideal for your commercial environment.
This is also a very attractive option to most commercial property owners. In fact, polished concrete is very popular amongst retail store owners. Polished concrete flooring is slightly more expensive up-front because of the polishing process. The installers will use diamonds of various levels to achieve a desired level of shine. These floors can be very finely polished to attain a mirror-like finish. View more samples of polished concrete flooring in our gallery here.
Polished concrete is very resilient as its surface is treated with densifiers during the polishing process and the sealers are added on top of it. This surface is ideal for commercial applications because it lasts for a long time, can bear heavy traffic, and is easy to maintain.
