Concrete flooring is one of the most economic and long-lasting options available for your industrial establishment, especially when you consider the minimal maintenance costs.
Concrete is made up of some of the most readily available materials on Earth, including water, sand and various aggregates. Being readily available also means that these materials are cheap. The majority of the costs you will incur for your concrete flooring project will cover installation and finishing, rather than materials. However, when you consider the lack of maintenance costs and the longevity of concrete flooring, the one-off cost is definitely worth paying with a long-term view in mind.
If you are working within an industrial sector, for example, as a manufacturer or mechanic, then you will require a flooring option for your factory, warehouse or workshop that is built to last and can withstand heavy traffic. This means that your options are limited, as there are relatively few flooring options durable enough for areas that use heavy machinery and vehicles frequently.
Epoxy resin flooring is one viable alternative to a concrete floor; however, whilst epoxy resin can sometimes be cheaper to install initially, when compared to a finished concrete floor, it is worth acknowledging that it has a much shorter lifespan.
When installed by professional concrete finishers such as ourselves, concrete floors can last for 50 years or more. On the other hand, epoxy resin flooring has an estimated lifespan of just 10 years when installed in a busy industrial environment. Concrete flooring is therefore your go-to option when looking for long-lasting, durable and attractive industrial flooring.
