Are you redoing the floor in your business? Maybe you are establishing your business for the first time and trying to decide what kind of flooring to put in. No matter what situation you are in, one option you might not have considered is epoxy. There are a lot of reasons why one might choose epoxy flooring, but many of these reasons have benefits that apply to commercial establishments specifically.
Low Labor Installation
Compared to carpet, tile, and most other flooring options, epoxy has a very small installation process. It is fast, which also means it will likely cost less. If you have a business that is already operational, this also means you will have to close your doors for a shorter amount of time to have epoxy flooring put in. Less time closed is always a good thing.
Resist Nearly Everything
Epoxy is a high resistant material, which is great when you will have unruly customers walking on it. Epoxy does wear out over time, just like any material, but there will usually be no lasting marks or stains from spills and it should resist most anything for a very long time. Epoxy also has a longer lifespan than most other flooring options.
Customize to Taste
Epoxy also offers a wide variety of options, from finishing style to color. This is not exactly a benefit that is unique to epoxy, but it is good to know that you will still be able to choose the exact appearance you are looking for to represent your business.
Feel of Professionalism
This benefit is a little more subjective, but many business owners attest that epoxy immediately gives any business a very professional, commercial feeling. When customers walk on epoxy, it makes them feel like they are walking through a fancy car dealership or exploring a big-box store that has absolutely everything.
Of course, it would not be fair to only discuss the advantages. Epoxy may last a long time, but when it does wear out, the process of removing it so you can put in new epoxy or a different flooring option is more labor intensive than the initial installation. Epoxy is also one of the more slippery options, which might make it less convenient for customers with movement difficulties to navigate your store. Every flooring type has advantages and disadvantages, and it is important to consider both when choosing which type of flooring to put in your business.
