Schools are closed for summer, there is no better time to start looking at the tasks that need to be tackled while the building is mostly empty. Updating or upgrading the floors in your school is one of those pressing matters that is nearly impossible to accomplish while school is in session. While school is out, it may be time to take advantage of the opportunity to make some flooring changes.
When school is out, you are not tasked with working around student or school-related activities. You can bring in a contractor to help you make some educated decisions about different points of flooring you wish to address or the types of flooring that will work out best for different areas. Many modern schools and public building owners are making the transition to solid-surface floors, such as concrete flooring with various coatings, from wood or tile flooring. While a logical transition, solid-surface floors do require a more in-depth application process and require time between steps for proper curing. Therefore, it is always best to handle these projects while school is out.
Schools can have specific concerns when picking flooring types; concerns that can be more specific than the typical commercial or public space. Obviously, safety and durability are two of the most common concerns, but a few other factors most school directors or decision-makers should take into consideration include:
Picking a high-quality concrete coating is going to deliver a long-lived floor that you won't be spending a lot of time to maintain over the years. Concrete can be coated in several types of materials to produce profound lasting ability, flooring integrity, and specific aesthetic attributes. From the most standard epoxy finishing to something more cementitious like urethane mortar flooring, these professionally installed concrete floor coatings offer a host of advantages that can be important to a school setting.
While the school flooring is not always considered as an attribute worthy of upgrading quite as often as it should be, it is the flooring that sets the stage for the rest of the building and the activities taking place inside. From the cafeteria and hallways to the classrooms, the right type of flooring and quality coating can make all the difference.
