Life Span of a Concrete Slab and It's Resurfacing
The International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI) suggests a concrete substrate life expectancy is approximately 30 years. When considering industrial and commercial usage common sense dictates something less. That being said, rarely is replacement necessary. An experienced epoxy flooring contractor can specify a far more cost-effective solution without the demolition and mess that goes with slab removal, by way of concrete resurfacing.
Concrete Resurfacing Requires the Proper Surface Preparation

The surface profile required to ensure proper long-term bonding is done by way of mechanical abrasion and should never include acid etching; thus the need for a good concrete flooring contractor has the correct tooling to provide the correct profile.
Going beyond profiling, all too often contractors make the mistake of filling a "moving" crevice with a rigid product guaranteeing failure.
In that instance we apply a flexible sealant within enough thickness to absorb the movement, making our patching a long-term solution once applied to the surface.
A Proper Concrete Resurfacing Will Provide For Increased Workers Safety
After Removing Loose Concrete and Surface Profiling
Some of the most common issues with older substrates are uneven shifting of each slab creating not only a tripping hazard but also loss of inventory with the tipping of loads and of course damage to your forklift equipment whose rigid suspensions allow the tires to take all the abuse.
Grind and seal flooring over the top of your patching will create a far safer workplace as it protects the floor and ensures more years of service.
