Urethane Concrete Flooring
Floor surfaces in general are regularly subjected to pressure from foot and equipment traffic. However, there are those who take on more intense pressure than the average. Take food processing and chemical processing facilities, for instance. The floors on these areas need to withstand the impacts of excessive moisture, chemicals and drastically changing temperatures.
While floors are supposed to be durable regardless of the use of the structure on which they were built, certain cases require greater resiliency. Duraamen of Washington D.C. provides urethane concrete flooring solutions that enable the floor surfaces to survive the test of time even when under extreme pressure.
Urethane Concrete Flooring vs. Brick Or Quarry Tile Floor
Brick or tile flooring systems have historically proven their resiliency. However, it is important to note that the conditions under which they were used are considered to be normal. They have yet to display excellent performance under extreme conditions.
Drastic changes in temperature and intense pressure among others can pose great threats to brick and tile flooring systems. Chemical and even the largely harmless water may slip through the cracks and joints causing damage to the floor. Once they settle on the surface, they may even breed bacteria and eventually put the entire facility’s safety at risk. Addressing the problems which may arise translates to not just costly but time consuming repairs too.
By letting the Duraamen of Washington D.C. team install urethane concrete flooring on your property, you are saving yourself from the stresses that the aforementioned scenario illustrated. This solution does not include any cracks at joints, giving no room for any fluid to settle and create damage.Our urethane concrete flooring system also boasts of exceptional thermal shock resistance enabling it to withstand the stresses of thermal expansion and contraction.
