For anyone considering a new or replacement flooring system, there is little doubt that the cost is one of the most important aspects of such a decision.
With so many flooring options available, how can you be sure that the one you choose will offer the best return on your investment in the long term? To help you make the right decision, we’ve created our Everlast® Epoxy flooring guide to highlight the ongoing cost savings of installing epoxy flooring.
Is epoxy resin flooring expensive?
An epoxy floor is an investment, and although the initial outlay may be more expensive than tiles, concrete, or carpet, you’ll be guaranteed a floor that will provide years of reliable service—long after inferior flooring options would have let you down.
Over the long term, an epoxy floor will minimize the need for further spending, making resin flooring the most sensible and cost-effective choice for businesses across the United States.
Reduced cleaning and maintenance time
Maintaining your flooring system can be costly and time-consuming. Your cleaning team likely spends hours every week washing, polishing, and buffing to ensure your flooring stays spotless and well-maintained.
Everlast® Epoxy floors are designed to be easy to maintain and clean—simply sweep the surface to remove any loose dirt and debris, then cover with a dilution of our Everlast® Floor Care Cleaner Concentrate.
Finally, use a deck brush to work the cleaning fluid into the floor and squeegee any excess liquid toward the drain.
The result? A fast, easy, and cost-effective way to maintain your floor that frees your janitorial staff for more productive tasks.
Lower energy bills
Energy costs are rising and businesses are trying to economize on the amount they spend on heat and light.
Our epoxy floors are available in a range of naturally light-reflective colors, which means they are an effective way to brighten a room without installing or switching on more lights.
A light, bright working environment can also improve the mood and productivity of staff, and the sheen of our reflective floors will give your facility a professional impression to guests and visitors.
Safer flooring to avoid injuries
Recent data* shows that over a quarter of all nonfatal workplace injuries that resulted in days lost from work were related to slips, trips, and falls.
Keeping your workforce safe is the number one priority for all reputable businesses—and the installation of a nonslip resin floor is just one way to help reduce the risk of accidents due to falls.
Aside from the time lost from workplace injuries, there is also the very real risk of a costly lawsuit should an employee or visitor to your premises have a slip-related accident.
Our flooring is made using small marble stones, which create an abrasive finish that remains nonslip even in wet conditions. We can also add extra grit to the final glaze coat if your floor needs to perform in high-traffic conditions, such as are found in commercial kitchens, wet rooms, poolside, or anywhere else added slip-resistance may be required.
Less downtime when replacing a failed floor
Most replacement flooring takes days—if not weeks—to install and cure. This creates a problem for busy organizations, such as hospitals or schools, where closing the facility to replace a failed floor is not an option.
Every business owner knows time is money; for each day your organization is closed, you’re counting the cost of lost profits.
Our flooring experts recognized this was a concern for many of our customers, and so developed Everlast® Overnight Floor. It’s a one-step epoxy flooring that is ready for foot traffic in only 6 hours, so if you only have a small window of downtime, we can install the floor after hours and it will be ready for you when you open your doors as usual in the morning.
