Quality industrial flooring is a must for all businesses in the industry and concrete is an incredibly popular choice thanks to its strength and durability. However, perhaps you have seen a bad concrete job, or heard horror stories which have put you off. We cover some of the most common complaints and the solutions.
The truth is, many concrete flooring issues are the result of bad handiwork and incorrect installation. Using a trusted and experienced installer of concrete industrial flooring such as ourselves minimises the risk of bad workmanship and ensures good results. Contact us on 01590 676585.
It’s a common assumption that concrete floors are very slippery, especially when wet, which can be a potential hazard for your workers. Whilst it’s true that concrete floors, like most hard floors, do become more slippery when wet, there are many options available to make concrete a largely anti-slip surface, such as applying a high-gloss sealer mixed with non-slip additive. We are more than happy to provide advice and guidance on the best way to prevent slipping on your concrete flooring.
It’s very important that new concrete flooring is applied evenly in order to avoid bumps that are not only unsightly, but a potential trip hazard as well. We use self-levelling screeds to achieve an even surface finish, tamped and with the option of power floating, which creates a smooth and polished finished result.
Concrete has a potential lifespan of over 100 years and is incredibly durable, which makes damage to it quite difficult to achieve. However, whilst some damage is potentially unavoidable, the majority is down to poor floor maintenance.
Many people believe that concrete is totally maintenance free and whilst it requires much less than other flooring options, it still needs attention to achieve its full potential and the more neglected it is the costlier repairs can become. We are happy to provide professional advice for properly maintaining your concrete flooring to ensure you avoid unnecessary repairs.
