Before a trusted epoxy contractor even begins the process of installing your commercial floor coating, they should ask you several questions. Although it is easy to get overwhelmed by everything that they need to know, you can prepare yourself for your consultation by taking the time to really think about accurate and honest answers. The following are just a few of the things you need to consider about before your contractor shows up.
What Does Your Floor Need to Withstand?
The purpose of installing commercial epoxy floor coatings is primarily to extend the life of your floor, so it is crucial that you think of all the different forms of damage that your flooring needs to withstand. For example, your garage or auto repair shop needs to withstand heat, tire marks, and extreme weight from heavy vehicles. If you own a factory or warehouse, it might be more important to have a floor that withstands heavy foot traffic, chemical spills, or frequent cleanings. Depending on your industry, you should create a list of things that you want your floor to hold up against.
What Do You Want Your Floor to Resist?
Similarly to what you need to withstand, you need to think about resistance. Do you want your floor to be:
- Abrasion Resistant
- Impact resistant
- Slip resistant
- Stain resistant
- Shock resistant
- Static resistant
Are You Looking for Customization Options?
If it is essential that your floor increases the aesthetics of your space, then you need to consider customization options. At our epoxy floor coating company, we can include in-laid graphics and logos for your business, highlight traffic patterns for a smooth-flowing warehouse, and identify safety areas to make your factory a safer place for you and your employees.
What Will Your Floor be Used for?
Since commercial kitchen epoxy floor coatings are much different from those that you would find in a factory setting, you need to narrow down the primary function of your space to create the most appropriate formula for your business. We currently create floors that are perfect for use in:
- Food preparation
- Chemical containment
- Animal Kennel
- And so much more!
Do You Have Any Other Specifications?
Lastly, you should write down any other specifications that are important for creating a durable, stylish, and low-maintenance floor. On the list, you need to include the dimension of your space, the age of your concrete or another substrate layer, and how quickly you need to use the floor after installation. You should also find out the average temperature and humidity levels of your environment so that we can create a formula fit for your climate.
