Retail Flooring Solutions for High Traffic Areas
Across Ohio, retail establishments serve hundreds of thousands of visitors each day, which means retail flooring must endure millions of footsteps each year. That includes winter months when floors must endure extra abuse due to salt and moisture. If you have a floor that isn’t built to withstand heavy foot traffic and elements, you’ll be stuck with a surface that can become unsightly, unsafe, and costly to maintain.
Our retail epoxy and polished concrete flooring surfaces give Ohio businesses the quality and dependability they need to operate with confidence, delivering flooring solutions that can withstand high levels of wear and tear.
Benefits of Concrete Flooring in Retail Space
Concrete flooring isn’t just for industrial applications. It can be a practical solution for retail spaces as well, making a bold statement and providing benefits that aren’t available with more traditional flooring solutions.
One of concrete’s main benefits is its extremely low cost: most buildings already have an underlying concrete slab, and the cost of concrete surface applications are cheap relative to other solutions.
Concrete is also naturally stronger than tile, vinyl, and hardwood and is better at withstanding heavy traffic, even from furniture, retail racks, pull carts, and heavy machinery.
On its own, unfinished concrete can be subject to cracking and other problems, and isn’t as eye catching or aesthetically pleasing. That’s where surface applications come into play, such as decorative epoxy flooring and polished concrete. At Premier Concrete Coatings, we can transform the boring concrete into a bold, vibrant, and practical flooring system that brings your space to life.
Polished Concrete and Decorative Epoxy Flooring Options
Premier Concrete Coatings offers a multitude of flooring applications for retail spaces, offices, and other commercial storefronts. Concrete can be polished to a durable and attention-grabbing shine. It can also be dyed or stained to a variety of attractive colors, or have a decorative epoxy applied.
Polished concrete and epoxy coating approaches both use concrete slabs as the foundation, but they provide two very different types of flooring surfaces, each suited for different situations. Polished concrete is created by repeatedly running specialized industrial grinding machines with polishing heads across a treated concrete slab to form a smooth, burnished surface.
Epoxy flooring systems, on the other hand, generally consist of multiple layers of various coatings. In reality, epoxy flooring is more of an approach than it is a independent material. Retail epoxy flooring “systems,” as you’ll often hear them referred, are based on a combination of resins and hardeners. When mixed together, the resin and hardener chemically react to form a rigid plastic material. The final material is strong, durable, resistant, and bonds extremely well to most base layers. Epoxy floors are so strong that they’re often used in heavy traffic areas such as industrial environments, healthcare facilities, and manufacturing plants. However, thanks to their low cost, they’re also commonly applied to retail environments that may be subject to frequent use and abuse.
Not sure what you need? No need to worry!. Each business has different flooring requirements and the experts Premier Concrete Coatings always consult with each customer individually to help them choose the best floor for their retail environment.
Retail Flooring that's Easy to Maintain & Grabs Attention
Polished concrete is a fast growing floor resurfacing option that has multiple benefits that increase the life of concrete and still provide a decorative, high-end design. Polished concrete is very easy to maintain and requires little to no tool maintenance throughout its lifetime. Perfect for retail spaces, warehouses, offices, and much more!
Another common flooring solution for retail businesses is epoxy flooring. Decorative epoxy flooring is perfect for any floor, whether commercial or residential. This floor comes in about 24 different color options and additional colors can be added. Like polished concrete, epoxy floor coatings offer attractive aesthetic appeal. Because they have the wow factor, they can really impress your visitors. The color choices and finishes also allow you to choose exactly the right floor for your brand, and make it easy to use varying approaches for each of the different spaces or use cases that you encounter.
Decorative Epoxy Flooring Retail Installation Process
Our installation process takes about 4 – 5 days to complete and 1 – 2 days of dry time to ensure that the epoxy is sound for retail foot traffic.
We follow a proven practice that includes the following steps:
- Diamond Grind – Provides coating with an appropriate surface profile and removes existing coating
- Repair any and all cracks, holes, joints – Allows for a seamless surface
- Primer / Basecoat – Gives the coating a deep, more rich base color and allows for coating to adhere to concrete properly.
- Metallic Marble Epoxy – Decorative coating designed to be a conversation piece.
- Polyurethane sealer – We use a water-based polyurethane to help protect the metallic marble layer.
