4 Reasons to Consider An Epoxy Floor for Your Business

Epoxy floor is made from a special, high-performing formula that combines a hardener and resin to resurface and seal concrete. You might be tired of using concrete floors in your place of business/office. They tend to look plain, they stain easily, and crack over time. You should consider having an epoxy floor! Here are four reasons why epoxy floors are perfect for your commercial needs.

Cost Effective Long Term

The cost of epoxy floor will depend on the size of the area being covered. Also the quality of the product being used and what kind of finish as well as design you choose. One more thing, decide whether you need to have professionals do the job.

Epoxy is more expensive than other types of sealers and paints. They can even double or even triple the cost of paint or other types of resurfacing. Other coatings may only last one or two years and need to be repaired from time to time. Epoxy floors are low maintenance, may never need repairs, and often last ten years or longer.

When you are looking at remodeling rooms in your home, you may be considering using tile for the floors, the backsplash, or even for the walls. While tile can be a difficult installation, it can be a beautiful decoration piece in each room. However, choosing good-looking tile can be challenging simply because there are so many generic or industrial tiles out there. You need to have the opportunity to shop for tiles that look nice, actually have some color to them, and look great in each room.

At ABL Tile Centre, you will find there are thousands of choices of tiles in every color and shape you could imagine. When you are choosing tiles for your rooms, you can choose from a variety of shapes, colors, and even textures to make the rooms look unique.



Choosing textured tiles is a wise choice for anyone who wants to have a little bit of texture on the wall or the floor. Tiles that are textured are excellent for bathroom or kitchen floors that can have water on them and become slippery. You can make the room safer simply by choosing a textured tile.

On the walls, a textured tile will last longer than wallpaper and give the same effect. Moreover, textured tiles are easier to install than wallpaper and will go up much faster than any wallpaper you choose.

When you choose the color for your tiles, remember that the color choices are just as vast as they are with paint. You don’t have to limit yourself to the few industrial colors you are used to. You can get something that complements what is in the house and suits your personal style.

You can liven up a room with some new tiles on the floor or walls, and you can even make the backsplash in your kitchen a brand new tile that brightens up the wall behind the stove or your cutting board.

You can choose all the right colors and textures of tiles to complete any remodeling job and add value to your home. Tiling is an art that should not be overlooked.

Points to Ponder in Polished Concrete Flooring

Points to Ponder in Polished Concrete Flooring

It has taken a while for people to start taking environmental issues seriously. But now that there are plenty of practical options for green living, it becomes a lot easier to get into an eco-friendly lifestyle. Most modern homes already have green technology features that allow them to save on energy costs and help save the environment as well. An eco-friendly blueprint may include solar powered lights and appliance, use of non-toxic and biodegradable paint, and polished concrete flooring. The last item often requires the services of a contractor and would therefore need some careful thought before having any work done. Here are some points that can be considered in getting a polished concrete floor.

1. Cost

Concrete floors have lower cost on materials compared to other flooring. Modern homes are already built using concrete. Thus, no additional materials are required for the flooring. However, it does have a high labor cost because it requires special equipment and skilled workers to accomplish. Search for contractors with competitive rates to make the most out of your green investment.

2. Benefits.

The cost of labor for polished concrete may be higher that its counterparts, but one can save on costs in the long run because these floors are low maintenance and durable. One can save on cleansers or fancy polishers as it can look good with a once a week cleaning from a mop with warm soapy water. Its durability ensures that you won’t have to repair or replace your flooring frequently. This type of flooring is also considered as a more affordable way to add class to your home because one can have it designed with stains, dyes, or aggregates like granite, seashells, glass chips, or river stone.

3. Safety.

The hard and smooth surface of concrete can make residents vulnerable to accidental slips or fall. It can also cause fatigue when one has to stand for long periods of time. As such, this type of flooring is not recommended for children’s bedroom or playroom and kitchen. In general, these floors are considered safe and can be made less slippery by the contractors.

That all being said, for those who have allergies, polished flooring would contribute to having less of attacks…it is known to not  harbor mildew, dust mites mold and other allergens compared to other materials.
