Epoxy flooring for car dealership showrooms

Posted by Jeremy Gillespie on Jul 5, 2017 8:21:00 AM

If you manage an automotive showroom, you know that every detail counts when it comes to impressing a customer. A stained, cracked, or aging floor reflects badly on your company and distracts from cars you’re working to sell. An attractive and well-maintained floor, on the other hand, can help create the ambiance you’re trying to create—whether that’s a sense of luxury, elegance, or modern simplicity.

Of course, a car showroom floor takes a lot of abuse over its lifetime, too, having to endure vehicle and foot traffic. So you need a flooring solution that’s both beautiful and durable.

Posted by Jamie Gillespie on Jun 28, 2017 7:45:00 AM

The expansion of European grocery chain Lidl into the US starting this June is projected to make the already-competitive grocery industry even more strained.

Metallic Epoxy Floors for Businesses

Posted by Jeremy Gillespie on Jun 21, 2017 9:48:00 AM

Looking for a unique way to impress customers and make your business’s physical space stand out? A metallic epoxy floor coating will transform a boring concrete slab into an attention-grabbing work of art.

Offering all the practical features of regular epoxy flooring (such as high durability and longevity), these specialty coatings use pigments and other additives to create a number of visual effects, including:

  • A satiny, metallic shimmer
  • Glitter or reflective quartz-like flakes
  • Two-toned swirls or ripples for a 3D water effect
  • Subtle, multi-color tones that look like polished marble
  • Bold patterns that look like galaxies or moon craters

Colorful, high-contrast designs can dress up a science center or art gallery, while a subtle shimmer can add elegance to a high-end car dealerships, salon, or premium retail center. No matter what pattern is created, the floor still maintains a smooth, high-gloss surface.

Do you manage an equestrian center or horse boarding facility? Are you about to build a new horse stall or renovate an old one?

One of the most foundational choices you’ll need to make for your equestrian facility is the type of flooring your stalls will have. While natural soil and wood planks are traditional choices, they can be difficult to keep clean. Wood in particular may begin to smell of urine over time.

Concrete flooring for horse stalls

If your facility already has a concrete slab, you’re in luck—concrete is an inexpensive, durable flooring solution that’s easier to clean than many of its alternatives. It resists damage and requires less maintenance than other options.
