If you’re looking for flooring for warehouses in Melbourne, We offer a few options to consider.
Renovating Existing Floors
When renovating an existing floor, you may need to consider remedial work first. This may involve levelling the surface, or removing damaged tiles, wood, linoleum or even carpet. We may find a beautiful slab of concrete underneath, or it may be worth pouring new concrete. Either way, we can guide you through the process, and discuss the options available to you.
If you are building from scratch, you can choose from a number of options such as a textured look, a solid matte finish, a high gloss look and a range of colours. Depending on the type of warehouse you run, the industry you are in and your budget, we can advise on the best options to consider.
While untreated concrete may crumble and erode over time, all our renovated and finished concrete floors are durable, slip resistant and hard-wearing. However, there are some additional questions to ask yourself before deciding on the type of finish needed to get the most from your concrete flooring, based on how you use your warehouse.
Will your Floors be Wet?
While sometimes wet floors cannot be avoided, it may be worth investing in epoxy flooring, involving a polymer and resin coating. This will protect your concrete, it will be easier to clean while providing the most slip resistance.
Are Outdoor Areas Used?
While your warehouse is an indoor facility, often outdoor areas are important for overflow, or during deliveries. A grind and seal polished concrete would be worthwhile in this instance, to protect your floors, handle wear and tear and provide a seamless surface between indoor and outdoor spaces.
Your finished concrete floors will last for decades, making them very cost-effective over time. It is worth investing in quality industrial flooring that will last. Grind and seal concrete flooring will provide you with the most affordable surface. However, you may find mechanically-polished concrete or epoxy provides you with the aesthetic and benefits more suited to your environment.
Look and Feel
It’s worth taking time to consider how you would like your flooring to look. To protect your concrete flooring, and ensure it is fit for purpose, we recommend grind and seal. Polished concrete will give you a more aesthetically pleasing, modern look, with either a high gloss or matte finish available. Epoxy flooring allows you to customise your floor in a wide range of colours and textures, via a polymer resin coating.
