Why would a concrete floor require Resurfacing – Is concrete resurfacing the right step?
There are many things to consider about your facility when thinking about concrete resurfacing, here are some our guidelines to see if you a ready for this:
Guideline #1: Are pits, erosion, joint damage or causing a loss in production? Concrete resurfacing is an all-encompassing term for any type of concrete repair or restoration. The controversy, however, is that most people assume is it very costly and will continue to work around damaged concrete rather than repair it. Furthermore, they may try to repair the concrete floors themselves and end up wasting money on failed patches and repairs. Regardless, when damaged concrete causes bumpy aisles for forklift drivers and production is slowed it is time to repair the concrete floor.
Guideline #2: Is your facility becoming increasingly harder to maintain? It might be a customer, corporate, or insurance that requires the floor be kept clean, but regardless of the reason for floor cleaning and maintenance it is important that is performed within budget. Often when concrete floors are damaged they crumble, trap dirt and debris, and are DUSTY. This dusty concrete floor may be causing your employees to suffer from breathing issues and is definitely wearing forklift tires faster than you realize. Bottom line: If maintenance cost have become too high, it might be time to seek concrete resurfacing ideas for creating a dust-proof concrete floor that is smooth and easy to clean.
Guideline #3: Is the damaged concrete continuously getting worse? When concrete starts to spall or erode there is no stopping it. Traffic will continue to erode small pits and divots into large ones sometimes even to the point of exposing rebar. Concrete restoration and repairs are the best way to stop the damage from spreading.
