From heavy machinery and chemical spills to constant traffic, your flooring endures a lot, and that means that even the most durable flooring may be prone to damage – especially when not properly maintained.

Challenges with Measuring the Concrete Mix in Different Environments

One component of concrete that we wish more customers were aware of is that a customer may not know they have poorly created concrete for as many as 5+ years. Concrete that has not been mixed correctly may not show its issues right away. It may be something that arises in the form of cracks and damage long after the contractor has finished, but before it is expected to start cracking. The creation of a high-quality concrete mix for commercial flooring requires precise measurement of all components, particularly water and moisture levels. However, this process can be complicated by varying environmental conditions, which is why it is so important to work with a contractor that understands the delicate needs of concrete. Key Challenges in Measuring Concrete Mix in Diverse Environments Denver is prone to many different variations in weather, and the time of year can specifically affect the longevity of the concrete. Examples of the factors that may affect this include: Ambient Temperature Variations – Temperature can significantly affect the concrete mixing process. In hotter climates, higher temperatures can cause […]


Does Choosing Decorative Concrete Flooring Affect Longevity in Commercial Properties?

In commercial property development and design, decorative concrete flooring – using stamped concrete, decorative epoxy, and polished concrete, and other decorative solutions – is an increasingly popular choice due to its aesthetic versatility. However, a common concern is whether the decorative aspect impacts the flooring’s longevity and durability. This consideration is crucial for commercial properties where flooring longevity and maintenance play significant roles in operational efficiency and cost management. Understanding Decorative Concrete Flooring’s Durability Decorative concrete flooring typically involves the application of color, patterns, and textures to standard concrete. This can include techniques like staining, stamping, polishing, and the use of overlays. The inherent durability of concrete as a base material remains a key factor in its longevity. Concrete’s strength and resistance to wear and tear are not compromised by decorative techniques when applied correctly. However, there are several different issues that can affect the longevity of the material. These include: Quality of Materials and Installation – The longevity of decorative concrete largely depends on the quality of materials used and the expertise of the installation process. High-quality dyes, stains, […]
