When it comes to concrete floors, especially those in high-wear-and-tear environments, such as garages, warehouses, restaurants and retail spaces, repairs are imminent. In addition to improving appearance, repairing your concrete flooring could save you money.
Concrete Repair versus New Flooring
Concrete restoration can ultimately save you hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars compared to total tear out and replacement. Although a concrete floor may crack and chip, the damage can be repaired. Through the appropriate repair process, you will get many more years of outstanding service and depending on the extent of the damage, many concrete floor repairs can being less expensive, plus the repair process is faster than having a completely new concrete slab removed and re- installed.
Interestingly, the professionals with Concrete Coatings Unlimited receive calls from clients who have faced high-dollar repairs due to the lack of knowledge from local concrete contractors who may not be aware of the new technology available today. There are many types of thin concrete overlay systems that can turn around a failing surface and make it look new again at a fraction of the time and without all of the process of tearing out and replacing the slab completely.
Unfortunately, some companies make concrete repairs by replacing one patch after another. With this being a temporary fix, you could end up spending a significant amount of time and money. For this reason, it is imperative to have damaged concrete floors repaired correctly the first time with top-of-the-line resurfacing systems, products and expertise.
Another way that damaged concrete floors cost money has to do with physical injury. For example, if the concrete in your retail space or restaurant has gouges, an uneven surface, or is cracked, an employee or patron could easily trip and fall, becoming injured. To avoid these types of incidents, the obvious and best solution is proper concrete restoration and repair.
