If you are asking that, then this post is for you, as there are several benefits that you can gain by having your concrete floor polished.

This facility sought our help to make their old beat-up floor look new again. When viewing the warehouse, they had a considerable amount of material that could cause severe damage to a regular floor, like heavy and corrosive batteries. Good thing our Rez-Stone epoxy has a few different options to choose from for this scenario! But, the most important item here is the integrity of the existing coating that has seen much better days. A simple, cost-effective recoat is an option if the existing coating is stuck. However, if the existing coating is not still wholly adhered, then the coating must be removed entirely before the new layer can be applied.

Over the last two decades, the demand for polished concrete has grown drastically. Twenty years ago, when Hoover & Wells started polishing concrete floors, customer expectation was set by specifying a desired gloss level. Although gloss testing is important, there are other tests that have been developed in recent years that will better define the overall expected outcome of the polished concrete surface. Distinctness of Image, Haze, and Roughness Average can be used in addition to the Gloss test to ensure the owner gets the quality floor he or she is paying for. The testing needs to be performed before the application of a sealer/guard because these products tend to give inflated readings. So, let's go over some of these terms and what they mean!

Hoover Wellsfeatures our own custom epoxy flooring called Rez-Stone. It is a great fit for businesses that want to apply an epoxy coating to their current concrete floor. However, you may be asking yourself the question, ‘Why would you want an epoxy floor?’
The most common reason for using an epoxy floor is just how versatile it is.Seriously, some of the systems we offer include resistances to chemicals, slips, sparks, heat,impacts andmore.Epoxy floors can make your operation safer! Epoxy reflects light better than concrete to help increase the overall brightness of the area and we can add lines/patterns to epoxy floors to help easily identify pathways and hazardous areas. From hazard markings and walkways to ads and logos, we can make it happen!
It also lasts a long time! Epoxy can last for many years, even when under constant stress from heavy use. As you can probably guess, it is harder to fix concrete than an epoxy covering. That layer of long-lasting epoxy serves as a layer of protection for your concrete floor underneath, protecting against chipping, cracking, and wear.
