Wherever a concrete floor is present, it is important that it is flat and perfectly level. In a manufacturing plant or a warehouse, the quality of your floor will directly impact safety and productivity. It is also important for maintaining the value and durability of the property.
Concrete leveling is a necessary step during new slab installations, as well as any time existing floor is showing signs of damage or unevenness. These are some of the instances for which you should schedule concrete leveling at your Colorado warehouse or industrial property.
Signs that a Concrete Floor Needs Leveling or Flattening
Depending on the operations at your facility, your floors could receive a lot of wear and tear from people walking on them, heavy machinery traffic, spilled chemicals, and dropped tools. Then there are also factors that you cannot control that could contribute to unlevel floors, such as oversights in the initial workmanship or the ground shifting beneath your foundation.
Concrete leveling is recommended during:
- New Slab Installation – If you are laying on a concrete floor or a concrete base, professional concrete leveling will give you the best results, ensuring the floor is completely level and will be long lasting, both of which often are not achievable with self leveler.
- Prior to Installing Epoxy Flooring – If you will be installing epoxy or another resinous flooring solution, the underlying concrete slab needs to be level and free of cracks or markings as these imperfections will show up in the epoxy. Diamond grinding and other leveling solutions will prepare your floor.
- When You Notice Cracks or Bumps – Cracks will often develop when movement in the concrete puts too much stress on the surface and causes it to break. Concrete leveling can smooth out the changes in floor elevation and repair cracks.
- When Doors Are Not Opening or Closing – Swinging doors may get stuck on raised flooring caused by an uneven floor. This could be dangerous and an inconvenience, but can be fixed with concrete flattening.
- When You See Cracks in Walls – If you start to see cracks in walls, foundations, or between the cement slab and vertical surface, this could be a result of a shifting cement floor pulling away and causing those cracks.
Concrete flattening and leveling is often the primary way to solve a problem with your warehouse floor. Before installing new flooring or resurfacing your floor, it is the best way to guarantee a floor that will last and stand up to the various challenges in warehouses and industrial properties.
