If you are going to build a commercial property for your business and you want to choose materials that are cost efficient, concrete flooring is a great option. This type of flooring can last in the building for more than 50 years, and it's a great investment that can help you save money down the road.
There are many commercial builders choosing this type of flooring material for properties, and here are a few reasons why.
No Scratching and Staining
People coming in and out of a commercial space, moving chairs and tables, and eating or drinking in the space can take a toll on the flooring. Tile, carpeting and wood can all get damaged easily by these things, but concrete flooring will withstand the wear and tear. You don't have to worry about warping, lifting or separating.
You don't have to worry about discoloration and fading, chips or breaking, or damage to under flooring materials like baseboards or padding. This reduces your replacement costs over time. With minimal sealing and maintenance over the years, the flooring is always going to look new.
Easy Cleaning and Improved Air Quality
Cleaning concrete flooring is very easy to do. You can sweep, use an antimicrobial and be done. You don't have to worry about the floor retraining moisture, causing mould and mildew in the space. The flooring isn't going to retain odours that come from bacteria. There also aren't volatile organic compounds to worry about with stained concrete. You don't have to worry about flooding and musty odours, or the ground catching fire and smelling like smoke.
Regular Energy Savings
Concrete flooring has thermal mass properties. The floor is going to slowly absorb and release heat while the furnace in the building is running and cold air while the air conditioner is on. This is going to help reduce air loss through the floor, and it will help reduce the amount your heating and cooling appliances have to run.
Talk with at least two different concrete contractors, like those at CPC Panels Pty Ltd, to get quotes for your commercial space, and to look at design options. Use the two quotes to see what the cost will be for installation, along with optional maintenance service packages in the following years. The flooring is going to offer all of these great features, and you can have it customized and stained with any type of colour, design or logo.
