A lot goes on in your warehouse, and your flooring tells the story. Vehicles, equipment, and personnel all require sturdy flooring to get from point A to point B. But no matter how tough your warehouse floors may be, all this activity will gradually wear them down. If you leave these floors unprotected, you’ll have to dish out for costly floor repairs and replacements down the line. It’s better to protect your concrete floors from the start with high-quality, low-maintenance floor coatings. Before you can make this investment, however, you must decide which solution is best for your warehouse floors. There are multiple choices out there, each with unique advantages.

Without further ado, let’s go over some of the best concrete floor coatings to consider for your warehouse flooring.

Best Concrete Floor Coatings to Consider for Your Warehouse Flooring

Concrete Polishing

Concrete polishing is a solid long-term solution for your warehouse flooring. Unlike the application of traditional floor coatings, the polishing process involves grinding down the concrete with coarse diamond abrasives (think really intense sanding) while at the same time impregnating the material with a densifying sealer that hardens the concrete from the inside. When performed properly, polished concrete flooring doesn’t require an additional topcoat. The floors will retain their strength and highly reflective sheen with periodic maintenance. Even still, the level of maintenance is quite low compared to other flooring solutions.

Epoxy Concrete Floor Paint

Perhaps the most popular choice for warehouse concrete floor coatings, epoxy floor paint is durable, resistant to moisture and chemicals, and highly customizable, coming in various colors. However, coating your warehouse flooring with epoxy tends to cost more than polishing your warehouse flooring, especially when considering long-term costs. Indeed, though epoxy-coated floors can withstand many threats, they require regular maintenance. And in many active facilities, epoxy floors require resurfacing every 2-3 years. As such, more and more commercial facilities are looking for solutions other than epoxy coatings for their floors.

Penntek Polyurea Floor Coatings

If neither concrete polishing nor epoxy coatings are right for your warehouse, don’t fret. At Anderson Painting, we recommend Penntek polyurea coatings for various concrete flooring applications, including residential and commercial garages, patios, basements, and more. Compared to epoxy, polyurea coatings are more flexible, durable, customizable, easier to install, and longer lasting. Warehouse floors that are fortified by Penntek coatings will endure even in the harshest conditions, including moisture intrusion, chemical spills, UV radiation, abrasion, and thermal shock. Penntek’s Chip System provides three distinct layers for top-tier strength and stability, making them ideal for high-traffic spaces like warehouses.
