Commonplace Concrete Flooring Problems

Commonplace Concrete Flooring Problems

Concrete floors remain susceptible to unattractive blotches without a professional epoxy coating. Avoid costly repairs by investigating the weaknesses of untreated concrete.

Potential Chemical Stains: The porous properties of concrete make unsealed floors more likely to receive permanent damage from accidental spills. Small cracks and openings create accessible routes for staining liquids to reach far beneath the surface of concrete flooring. Lawn control chemicals are likely to rust or eat away at unprotected concrete. Mowing runoff from sprinkler systems or grass carries these staining chemicals directly to your concrete driveway. Environments that experience heavy winters are rife with driveway-damaging chemicals. Salt and ammonia-based chemicals are commonly used on city roads as de-icing solutions. Both chemicals ravage unprotected concrete surfaces with flaking surfaces.

Moisture Vulnerability: Regular exposure to moisture threatens permeable concrete. Infiltrating H20 can cause cracks to widen and deteriorate underlay adhesives. Other moisture risks come from exposure to plant life. Seeds are able to take root in concrete chasms given sufficient access to moisture. Many driveway weeds problems begins with moisture-vulnerable unsealed concrete. Microscopic mold spores easily navigate the tiny gorges of porous driveways. Even a small amount of moisture will spur the growth of potentially toxic patches.

Sealant Protection: The right protective treatment significantly reduces these concrete-flooring risks. Epoxy sealants from REDRHINO: The Epoxy Flooring Company offer maximum protection from moisture and corrosive compounds. Compound resin polymers fill porous gaps to prevent liquid access. Concrete sealants also add protection against heat exposure, UV stains, and chipping. Combine these solutions with concrete’s natural durability for a long-lasting floor or driveway. Apply professional sealant annually to maintain high traffic areas. Treat concrete every two to three years to protect areas with limited pedestrian activity.

Expoxy flooring warranty
The RedRhino Warranty

At RedRhino, we are working hard every day for our reputation as your number one choice for epoxy flooring. As part of that commitment, we think it's important to stand behind our products and our work.

You may notice that some of our competitors claim to give "lifetime" guarantees on flooring. But, once you read the fine print, you find that their promises don't really stand up to their marketing. Look a little further into the reviews, and you'll find that you can't be sure they'll stand behind their flooring for more than a few years… if they are even still in business.

Using warranties from epoxy flooring manufacturers can be difficult, as well. Although most do guarantee their products for a certain amount of time, those guarantees depend on very precise (and occasionally, unrealistic) application settings involving temperature, humidity, concrete surface preparation, etc.

We understand the frustration that customers feel when dealing with these issues, which is why we offer a more straightforward warranty package than anyone in our industry. We can do this because we understand the intricacies of epoxy flooring, and make sure that our teams are trained professionally. They won't apply resin until your floor is ready, and won't rush through the job because they know you need it for years to come.

To find out more about our seven-year guarantee, and why RedRhino is different from other flooring companies,
