Timing is crucial, it means your reputation, your competitive edge, and, as they say, “time means money!” In this post, we’ll give you five highly-effective ways to get your flooring project done on schedule and on budget.
As an architect, designer, or contractor, staying on schedule is an important part of your business and your reputation. Project management is key, but there are often factors that are out of your control.

When it comes to a flooring project, there are some steps that can be taken to help you meet critical deadlines.

Planning makes perfect

The more information you can provide upfront during our initial assessment meeting, regarding the scope of your project, the application, traffic patterns and use of your space, as well as providing detailed images and measurements, the more accurate the cost and timing estimated will be to reduce your risk of timing or budget over runs

Leverage Turnkey Flooring Solutions

To maximize efficiency, select a single-source flooring company. A flooring company that both manufactures and installs the product can ensure there are no coordination or communication issues. Working with one company directly minimizes the number of contacts you deal with and provides seamless service, from product selection and design specifications, to installation and final walk-through.

Select the Right Flooring System for Your Space

Specifying the product for spaces within your facility is vital for project success. Knowing the conditions of your space is the first step. Once you know the flooring performance requirements, your flooring provider can then assist you in selecting the right flooring system to meet the challenges of your environment.

For food and beverage facilities, a floor that is thermal shock resistant may be a priority depending on the varying temperatures of the environment. Noise reduction may need to be factored in when choosing a floor for healthcare and educational facilities. Impact resistance could make or break the performance of a flooring system in a heavy-duty manufacturing or automotive company.

Every area poses unique problems, and these specifications are essential to think about before installation to avoid time and money spent on potential repairs/replacements in the future.

Use Floor Technology to your Advantage

When timelines are under pressure due to unforeseen construction delays, it is best to consider and assess the fastest options. Epoxy flooring has become of growing interest to several industrial companies, as the material produces fast-acting results, some that are ready to use in a matter of hours after application – depending on a myriad of factors.

The speedy solution offered by Epoxy makes it an attractive choice for those looking to minimize renovation downtime and save expenses caused by closures. Remember, the right flooring company will make sure to utilize the correct system and chemistry to fit the timeline of the project being installed.
