If you’re a commercial property owner looking for the best way to extend the life of your floors and add value to your business, concrete polishing is for you.

Concrete polishing is a flooring solution that is economical, cost-effective, and low maintenance.

In this article, we’ll discuss the benefits of concrete polishing for commercial properties. Con-Tek Coating And Polishing LLC offer premium concrete polishing services that will enhance your business and extend the life of your flooring.

What Is Concrete Polishing?

Concrete polishing is the process of grinding concrete down and repairing any imperfections on the surface. Once the concrete is level, an epoxy top coat is applied to seal the results. The process utilizes the existing substrate, which makes it a more economical option for many consumers.

For commercial businesses, concrete polishing has the advantage of mimicking expensive stone flooring at a fraction of the price. It is a low-maintenance flooring solution that can prevent concrete from becoming hazardous due to damage from equipment traffic, moisture, and spills.

Benefits Of Concrete Polishing

There are many benefits for commercial business owners who invest in concrete polishing. Concrete polishing saves you time and money, and has less impact on the environment.

Less Maintenance

Polished concrete requires little maintenance to maintain its longevity and appearance. You can maintain polished floors with routine sweeping to ensure nothing is left on the surface and weekly mopping to remove tougher spills or stains. Concrete polishing prevents contaminants from permeating the surface and damaging the concrete, which means your floors last longer with less hassle.

Maintenance and upkeep are more environmentally friendly than other concrete coatings. There are no hazardous chemicals required to clean polished concrete floors, so you can leave less of an impact on the environment. Gentle, basic cleaning products are best to keep your polished floors in shape.

Longer Service Life

Polished concrete resists damage and can last a lifetime when properly maintained. It will not chip, scratch, or flake like uncoated concrete, and this is inherently beneficial for storerooms and warehouses where equipment traffic is at an all-time high.

Increased Safety

Because the topcoat acts as an additional protective layer for the surface, concrete polishing increases the safety of your commercial flooring. Epoxy coating is slip-proof, which can prevent employee and equipment accidents, saving you money in lawsuits and potential workers’ compensation requests.

Customization

There are virtually endless options for customization when polishing concrete. The concrete can be ground specifically to bring out enhanced sheen, and gloss finishes can complete this look effortlessly. For commercial business owners, the design choices can increase the visual appeal of your space. How you present your floors affects how employees and customers feel about your business. With concrete polishing, you’re sure to leave a positive impression, which can enhance the reputation of your business in the long run.

What are concrete coatings?

Our epoxy floor coatings are a concrete resurfacing option that is installed over existing concrete floors for both interior and exterior concrete. All of our coatings are installed by hand (we do not use any stamps), thus giving our clients a true, one-of-a-kind floor. We install a wide range of flooring systems such as: 100% solid epoxy, concrete stain, acrylic cement, and rubber based products.

Clients have the ability to customize any coating with our various color options and design techniques. Concrete Coatings are used not only in residential, but industrial and recreational settings as well. ConTek Coating uses only the highest quality, industrial products on the market to ensure every customer is getting the best value.

How Much Do Your Concrete Floor Coatings Cost?

Each project is customized to your particular concrete flooring needs. Every job we do is different, because we offer different types of coatings and finishes.  We will work with you to develop a free estimate keeping your budget in mind. 

How Durable Are Your Epoxy Concrete Coating Systems??

We use only industrial products on all of our epoxy floor projects. They are designed to give clients the most value and longevity over any other coating material on the market. Just to give you an idea of how strong our products are, we installed an epoxy flake floor in the garage of a Fire Station in 2008 to protect the firehouse’s garage from dirt, debris, salt, and the extreme work environment. Due to our expertise and industrial coatings, we have yet to receive a repair call. Those same products are used in all of our residential projects.

How long does a typical epoxy flooring project take to complete?

A typical residential project takes approximately 3 – 5 days to complete depending on several variables. Variables include, but are not limited to: size of job, repairs and/or preparation requirements, weather, additional design details, customer requests, etc.

What if I already have an existing concrete coating?

We must grind off any existing coating and repair materials before we can install any of our concrete coatings. This ensures the integrity and longevity of our flooring systems.

How Long Do I Need To Stay Off My Concrete Floor Coating After It Is Installed?

If using 100% solids epoxy, your floor will be cured and walkable in about 12-18 hours. You can return to full heavy traffic after about 24 - 72 hours. Wait for at least 24 hours before moving light weight furniture on your brand new concrete coating flooring. Before moving anything heavy (car, equipment and furniture).

How do you prepare concrete for resurfacing?

We start every project by first preparing the concrete for our products. It is imperative that we have a fresh concrete surface before installing our concrete coatings on your project – this will allow our products to have only the BEST mechanical bond.

We spend approximately 66% of the project prepping your floor which may either be by diamond grinding or shot grinding the concrete (depending on the location of the project) and in some cases we do both! Some contractors will come in and just acid wash or not even prep your floor – we get calls all the time about botched installs with customers asking if we can save their project; we must start fresh every time.

Will I Need To Reseal My Concrete Floor Coating?

If you follow our maintenance and cleaning guidelines, you should not have to worry about resealing the concrete floor coating. We offer a professional grade cleaner that will easily remove stains or tire marks, but will also preserve the life of your concrete coating topcoat.

What If My Concrete Floor Has Cracks, Chips And Is Old?

No worries, we are experts in repairing existing problem areas of concrete. In some cases we have been found to be a cheaper alternative over tearing out and replacing existing slabs of concrete. Once we have saved your concrete we then install our decorative designs to hide the flaws and repairs.

How Do I Care For My Concrete Floor Coating?

You can clean our concrete coatings with typical sweeping or mopping. 

Will Oil Stain My Concrete Floor Coating?

Epoxy floor coatings are extremely resistant to most hazards, including cleaners, gas, oil, transmission fluid, and even most industrial chemicals. Our epoxy concrete coatings system is both oil and moisture resistant.

Who Invented Polyurea Coatings?

Andy Phelan, director of business development and training at Rhino Linings Corporation, explains, “Polyurea was invented in the early 1980s when a less moisture-sensitive form of polyurethane was desired. By replacing the hydroxyl group in the urethane with an amine group, a product we now call polyurea was formed.

What Are Polyurea Concrete Coatings?

Polyurea is useful for concrete floors, as it quickly and strongly bonds to concrete while providing a smooth, virtually impermeable surface that protects the floor from impact, water damage, chemicals, heat, and sunlight.

What Types Of Environments Can Epoxy Floor Coatings Be Used?

Epoxy flooring coatings can be used in a variety of environments.  The durability, slip resistant finish is fantastic for any industrial setting, storefronts or garages.

How Are Epoxy Floor Coatings Applied?

We have perfected a six step process for applying Epoxy Floor Coatings that involves prepping the floor, prime floor with epoxy primer, fill all cracks, holes with epoxy grout, then apply epoxy paint. 

Can I Apply Epoxy Floor Coatings In Cold Temperatures?

You can!  Epoxy can be used at cold temperatures but must be handled and applied with techniques adapted to cold temperatures.

Do I Need To Hire A Professional To Install Epoxy Floor Coating?

Installing Epoxy Floor Coating correctly is critical to the appearance and durability of your flooring.  Hiring a professional is the best way to ensure that your flooring will look amazing and last a lifetime! 

Does My Concrete Floor Coating Come With A Warranty?

We provide a 10 year warranty on your concrete floor coatings against peeling, delamination and wear for as long as you own your home.

"Austin applied a polyaspartic epoxy solid-color coating to our garage. The work -- which included grinding off the old coating and the application of three coats of polyaspartic (primer coat + 2) -- was done meticulously. The new coating looks great and the sand added to the primer coat has eliminated the slippery nature of the old coating. Austin was exceptional to deal with from start to finish. He communicated by phone, e-mail & text...always in a timely and totally professional manner. I highly recommend this company."

"We hired Austin to level our basement floors before we installed vinyl flooring. He was on time, a pleasure to work with, clean, reasonable and our basement floors look amazing. We recommend and we would use his services again. After the floors were completed he was kind enough to drop off a thank you and some delicious coffee for us try. Thank you Austin!"
