Grind and Seal Epoxy Flooring Is Cost-Effective
Grind and seal floors are the most cost-effective flooring option available today. This is one of the major draws of installing this type of flooring system, as it is not only economical but leaves your workspace dust-free and looking good.
Concrete resurfacing, another common name for this type of flooring, is achieved by using the original concrete substrate that exists in your facility.
An experienced epoxy contractor will be able to assess any patching and or remediation that might be necessary to create the epoxy flooring system. It is important to point out, that it is critical to use patching material that is not only compatible but quick hydrating so there is no trapped moisture in the final grind and seal the concrete floor.
After the existing substrate is ground down with diamond grinding tools, the floor can be refinished to the desired sheen. Additionally, since there is no existing floor to remove or dispose of, there are no costs associated with the disposal or transfer of materials.
Grind and Seal Concrete Floors Are Easy To Clean And Maintain
Grind and seal concrete floors are simple to maintain and clean, mostly because they do not have the seams or edges for peeling etc.
As long as you keep them properly cleaned, which is as simple as a broom and mop or an auto scrubber. Also, since these flooring systems require little to no maintenance, there will be no time taken away from your production schedule to deal with floor maintenance issues. Concrete floor resurfacing is the simplest way to upgrade your flooring, and it can dramatically improve the way your facility looks and operates.
Grind and Seal Floor Coatings Are Long Lasting
Grind and seal floor coating has a dramatic effect on making your floor last longer, which is another key benefit of installing this type of flooring system.
This is for a variety of reasons, but the most important one is that a grind and seal concrete floor makes the concrete substrate resistant to high abrasion and long-term wear and tear. We like to recommend a clear system as any incidental dragging of pallets we will not show so readily.
Since grind and seal floors use the existing substrate, there also won’t be any peeling, cracking, or, delamination that takes place. This adds to the appeal of this flooring system and is one of the major reasons why commercial facilities choose this option.
