How Long Do Resin Floors Last?
Updated: Oct 5
An epoxy resin floor can last as long as thirty years, in the case of residential garages and the like. Obviously, the industrial epoxy flooring sector will see more wear and tear, but will certainly out last any other type of concrete floor resurfacing, when considering all the factors, cost, downtime, and ease of installation.
The other benefit is its ability to be recoated to bring it back to that new and shiny appearance most clients expect. All things considered, the ROI of epoxy flooring far outweighs any other the other flooring option, and at a cost of approximately 1.50 to 2.00 dollars per square feet, depending on the size of the project.
Grind and Seal Flooring Offers Many Benefits and Options
Typically, by the time a client has decided it is time to grind and seal their concrete floor, it will have some wear and tear that will require patching and evening of slab transitions, as this workspace will minimize forklift repairs and an unsightly workplaces. Grind and seal flooring, or using a resin flooring system, allows for hiding of the patching and sealing of the substrate to mitigate any dusting and wearing of the actual floor.
The other benefit is the resin flooring can be pigmented to create a more monolithic concrete resurfacing. Beyond the obvious aesthetic benefits, it also can create a great light reflectivity making navigation easier and a brighter workplace for your staff.
Concrete Resurfacing Is a Real Cost Savings
The cost of forklift repair is minimized with the right working surface for your forklifts to transverse. Just as importantly, the cost of downtime and the inconvenience of scheduling
can be significant. Remember, forklifts basically have a stiff suspension, making bumps and holes very detrimental to your moving equipment, not to mention employee safety. Bottom line is, a well maintained grind and seal concrete floor will produce many benefits that will essentially negate to coat of the actual floor resurfacing.
A Quality Epoxy Contractor Is Vital For a Good Outcome
