It may seem impossible to get your concrete floors repaired, but we are dedicated to working around your production to keep you focused on your business while we handle the problem areas! Some of the most common concrete flooring issues are the following.
Dirty concrete that can’t be cleaned: Forklift tire marks and grime can be stubborn to remove from bare concrete or even coated concrete. Concrete grinding machines can remove these in a breeze. Then polished concrete can be installed (yes, this is affordable for warehouses in South GA too!)
Small cracks, spalls, or chips in the floor: Little cracks, spalls, divots, chips in the floor can be dangerous for forklift traffic, but they are also dangerous for your floor. As wheeled traffic repeatedly rolls over these little imperfections the concrete will slowly deteriorate and become larger areas of damage. Repairing the concrete with a lasting solution before it becomes a bigger problem is crucial to protecting your slab. Forklifts need a smooth surface to ride over to fully protect the slab which is why we strongly recommended joint filler in all your concrete joints, especially the aisle ways. You can read more about the importance of joint filler here.
Large concrete floor damage can still be repaired: When small repairs go untreated, they can become large, crater-like obstructions in your floor. Replacing the concrete can be scary, but it can still be prevented with the right products and proper installation. South GA industrial concrete floor repair can be a true saving to your floors.

The greatest benefit of polished concrete is the maintenance and longevity. Some things that may be a nuisance to you, may simply fade away with polished concrete.
- No more epoxy coatings wearing off the surface. There are no topical products on this floor – only penetrating sealers so nothing to wear off!
- No need to “re-do” the floors every 5 years causing shut downs. Simply have the floors rebuffed quickly every few years to maintain their luster.
- No expensive cleaners are required. Water is all you need!
- All of this – and it is still suitable for forklifts, high-traffic, heavy equipment, and more!
