HOW TO PLAN YOUR PROJECT

A concrete floor is one the most fundamental investments in a facility. It also can be one of the most neglected when it comes to maintenance. Professional maintenance with a quality epoxy application and a strategic polishing extends the life of a floor, reduces long-term costs, increases productivity, raises safety levels, and provides significantly improved appearance. Simply put, taking care of your floors is one of the simplest ways to keep your facility running as it should.

A professional quality floor doesn’t just happen, however. It takes careful planning, wise choices, and follow through. Here are the twelve steps for planning a successful floor refinishing project:
