Choosing the floors of your commercial facility is an important step in deciding the overall look for your interior. Office spaces, medical facilities, and industrial spaces have wide open areas where the flooring material you go with can drastically alter the feel and look. While people often think of concrete as the material for sidewalks and highways, using it in commercial spaces offers many benefits as well.
Concrete is low cost
Unlike expensive tiles and carpets, concrete is very economical and can be as low as $2 to $6 per square foot. Polished floors also minimize the need for additional layers of waxing and coatings. Using concrete allows for more funds for special projects and improvements in other areas of your facility.
Concrete is low maintenance
Regular maintenance of concrete is easy and unlike other materials, does not hold onto dust, debris, and mold. Commercial facilities are typically large, so spending less time cleaning is beneficial and allows for more productivity.
Concrete is versatile
Plain, old concrete may be gray and boring, but with skilled concrete refinishing professionals, you can transform a space to be polished to different degrees, colorful, natural-looking, and luxurious. It can be stamped while wet to even create a faux wood, stone, or dirt effect, and has the versatility to achieve the right look for your commercial space.
Concrete is light reflective
Many facilities want to present a bright, clean space with lots of natural light. The high reflectivity of concrete floors can minimize the need for unattractive artificial lights (and their costs) and help to brighten a space.
Concrete is a hard, durable material that can take on lots of foot and vehicle traffic that goes through commercial facilities, which means it can last longer than other fragile floors like tile and carpets with proper maintenance. If any cracks result, repairs and refinishes are much easier and less expensive as well.
