Life Span of a Concrete Slab and It's Resurfacing
The Institute of Concrete Repair (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 actual slab replacement necessary. An experienced epoxy flooring contractor can specify a far more cost effective solution, without the demolish and mess that goes with slab removal, by way of concrete resurfacing.
Concrete Resurfacing Requires the Proper Surface Preparation
Typically spelled out with the "engineered" product manufacturer data sheet. The 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 floor contractor that has the correct tooling to provide the correct profile. Going beyond profiling, all too often contractors make the mistake of feeling a "moving" substrate with a rigid product guaranteeing failure in no time at all.
In that instance we apply an elastomeric membrane 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 Worker's Safety

After Removing Loose Concrete and Surface Profiling
Some of the most common issues with older substrates are uneven shifting of each individual slab creating not only a tripping hazard but also lose product with tipping of loads and of course damage to your forklift equipment of which has a rigid suspension allow the tires to take all the abuse. This results in costly time and money replacing them.
Grind and seal flooring over the top of your patching will create a far safer work place as it will mitigate dusting and airborne particle not only entering worker's respiratory system but soiling finish goods.
