During the last thirty years, the protection of concrete floors has gone from essentially nothing, to a fairly sophisticated process involving some type of protective coating or surfacing. Epoxy floors in Houston have emerged as one of the best solutions to provide lasting protection. The main purpose, of course, is to provide protection to the slab from deterioration or contamination, or to provide some added benefit such as aesthetics, wear, non-skid, chemical resistance, ease of maintenance, physical performance, and a myriad of other properties. REFINE Concrete Services wants to remind you that no other surface in a building takes more abuse than floors, regardless of the type of building, whether it be industrial or commercial.
Concrete floors in Houston are subjected to just about every kind of abuse – impact, abrasion, chemical attack, and thermal shock. Concrete floors are not designed to take this continual abuse. Concrete floors are porous and tend to create dust from wear and abuse. They are also subject to abrasion and chemical attack. It’s for this reason that all concrete floors in Houston need some sort of protection, regardless of where it’s located. The challenge, in the overall picture, is to determine what type of protective material to choose for the various conditions. Often, the choice is clear to REFINE’s Estimators & Craftsmen; Epoxy Floor Systems
The installation of Epoxy Floors in Houston is a service REFINE’s Craftsmen have extensive experience with in a myriad of commercial and industrials environments.
REFINE’s Epoxy Floors Systems are coatings that are bonded directly to the surface and offer long term protection that may or may not, depending on client needs, have some aesthetic value. The challenge for most decision makers today, whether it be architects or facility managers, is to choose the most effective material and application that will result in the best performance and lowest life cycle cost. It is increasingly clear that these individuals must rely on knowledgeable professionals to assist in proper selection, application, and maintenance of the floor coating. REFINE Concrete Services Flooring Estimators can guide the owner and we’ll be with you every step of the way; from planning all the way through to successful completion.
REFINE’s Material Selection Process

(2) Consider the Performance Conditions

(3) Other considerations
Other considerations are often overlooked when selecting or specifying an epoxy floor system. However, don’t be concerned, you can be assured that REFINE will discuss each of these considerations with you and your team. These lesser considerations don’t necessarily contribute to the function of the system, but are important as far as being able to install a particular system and assuring owner satisfaction.
Installation & Inspection
Once the REFINE system has been chosen, the material must be applied and the job inspected and approved. Choosing REFINE to install the system is just as important as the material used. REFINE’s Craftsmen are trained and highly experienced in the installation of Epoxy Floors in Houston. The job does not end with the application of material. Depending on your environment and it’s potentially ongoing needs a long-term review, maintenance, and repair program will be established for continued performance and satisfaction. All floor surfaces take continuing wear, abrasion, and impact. Even the most durable surface will show areas of distress that require attention. A small amount of attention both before and after installation will prolong the life of a flooring system. As years go by, the success of the project will depend upon the coordination between REFINE and the facilities manager/owner.
