If you’re looking for affordable flooring for your business, epoxy flooring can save you money in the long term. It’s incredibly durable and hard wearing, looks great, and will last for years. If you look at the bigger picture, epoxy flooring is a great investment. Here are the five main reasons it will save you money.
1 – You don’t have to stop working while it’s installed
The hidden cost of replacing flooring is that it could take a long time to install, and that will mean disruption to your business. Any time that you cannot be trading is money lost, so those costs need to be factored into the total cost of the flooring. Epoxy flooring is quick drying, and our installers are willing to work overnights and at weekends to install your new floor out of business hours, meaning there’ll be minimum down-time.
2 – It takes a lot to damage it
Epoxy flooring is seamless which means there will be no joins or cracks where dirt can accumulate and eventually cause damage. The seamless nature of the finish also means that the epoxy flooring provides a waterproof covering – this means there’s no opportunity for water to damage the substrata which would be expensive to repair. In addition, epoxy floors have good chemical resistance, heat resistance, impact resistance and stain resistance, which means they’ll last longer and look good for longer. Heavy traffic use is no problem – even when it’s used by forklifts, lorries, cars, or even just thousands of people every day, an epoxy floor can take the pressure and still remain damage free.
3 – It’s cheap and easy to clean and maintain
Epoxy flooring is really easy to clean. It’s seamless so it’s a breeze to keep it free of dust and dirt, and it’s durable which means you can wash it with hot water and detergent. Even stubborn dirt and stains can be scrubbed away – you may need to use a bit of elbow grease, but you won’t have to invest in expensive cleaning agents, polishes or special treatments.
4 – It’s cheap to repair
If parts of the floor do get damaged and need repairing, the liquid nature of epoxy flooring means you will achieve the same seamless finish as you had on the day the flooring was installed. It doesn’t matter how small or large the repair, when it’s finished, no one will ever know it was there. With seamless repairs, it’s less likely that you’ll need to replace the entire floor to achieve a consistently good-looking floor.
5 – It lasts
The durability of epoxy flooring means it will last at least ten years, depending on the amount of traffic and wear and tear it sustains in its lifetime. You may well find alternative flooring that’s cheaper to install now, but if you’re looking for ways to save money in the long term, epoxy flooring is an extremely cost-effective option.
