When you start noticing damage in your concrete or epoxy flooring, such as a crack or unlevel area, a property owner’s first instinct may be to ignore it, especially if it looks like a minor issue and is not impacting the operations at your commercial property. After all, at this point, it can be difficult to justify the cost and the interruption to your business operations while the repair is completed.
But this choice to leave a problem on your concrete floor can end up being a far more expensive one for your business and there are several financial reasons why you should repair concrete flooring as soon as you notice a problem.
Cost Savings with Fast Concrete Repair
With concrete flooring, almost every problem starts off small and becomes more noticeable as time goes on. For example, with an unlevel concrete floor, you might at first only notice a slight slope to the floor. But left alone, the sloping could become severe enough that doors are unable to open and tripping becomes a risk.
Getting concrete leveling and other epoxy flooring repair solutions when you first notice the problem you can save yourself on costs including:
- Repair versus Replacement – In the early days of a crack or unlevel surface, a small repair is often all that is needed to restore the concrete floor. But once damage becomes significant, the cost of repair can go up exponentially and repair may not be possible with the floor instead requiring replacement. This will almost always cost you far more than the current repair will.
- Lost Time – One reason why commercial facilities often choose to forego repairs is the concern about interrupted work. With the right concrete flooring company, minor repairs will often take only a few hours and can potentially be planned around work schedules so minimal or even no productivity time is lost. With larger scale repairs or replacements, interruption to work is more likely to be inevitable.
- Injury – Flooring problems can make a floor unsafe for people walking over it. As problems develop over time, you may not realize how bad they have gotten until someone trips or slips. This could be a significant financial liability for your company.
As soon as you know there are issues with your commercial concrete or epoxy floor, you should not delay scheduling concrete leveling and repair to bring your floors back to their like new condition.
