Everything You Need To Know About Resin Flooring Cost
We understand that cost is one of the most important factors to consider when planning a flooring project, especially for a large commercial project.
However, you should not allow the quality of your work to suffer as a result of this. You should ensure that you have a good quality, long-lasting resin flooring solution that does not require replacement or repair.
Read on to find out everything you need to know about resin flooring costs…
As you may be aware, the cost of a resin floor for your unique project is determined by several factors. These are some of them:
- – The location’s layout
- – Size of the area
- – If there are any obstacles (for example, heavy gear) and how modern the space is
- – The type of resin flooring that you specify
The final point, the type of resin flooring you choose, is a critical consideration that can influence overall resin flooring cost in the long run.
We’ll go over this in more detail later in the article, but for now, here’s our formula for calculating the average cost of your current resin flooring.
Calculate Current Resin Flooring Cost
Although an average cost for a resin floor replacement may not be achievable, there is a technique to estimate how much one may cost.
To begin, use the following equation to determine the current average cost of your floor:
And then estimate the annual cost of what a new floor might cost:
Resin Flooring Cost: Which Types Affect The Price
Polyurethane (PU) is the most common type of resin flooring for many applications, but that doesn’t mean it’s the most effective.
A PU coating is often (and incorrectly) assumed to require frequent repairs during its lifetime, eventually necessitating a complete replacement.
There are various technical reasons why PU floorings require frequent repairs and replacements. In fact, the total cost of your resin floor should account for the cost of these repairs and replacements over the life of the floor.
An Acrylicon resin floor, on the other hand, comes with a ten-year warranty, but with proper maintenance, your flooring can last the lifespan of the environment it’s in.
Warranties With Resin Flooring
When it comes to costs, it’s important to note that working on large-scale industrial or commercial projects, contractors and project managers may run into warranty concerns.
Let’s say you want to use the resin flooring installation of X firm as an example. You learn that Y company is the distributor and Z company is the manufacturer.
What happens if something goes wrong when it comes to warranties? Who is to blame for this?
The installer may place blame on the manufacturer or distributor, and they may act similarly.
You’re left with an angry customer who won’t accept inferior flooring.
How Is This Overcome?
Working with a resin flooring company that manufactures, distributes and installs the system all under one roof is much easier.
That way, should any problems arise, they can be resolved quickly and no blame is laid amongst different stakeholders within the supply chain.
It also means you can save costs in the long run without having to repair or replace as often as you might already do.
Resin Flooring Downtime Considerations
Chances are, you can’t afford to shut down for long periods of time for repairs or replacements.
And shutdowns for days or weeks at a period will have a negative influence on business.
As a result, while determining the cost of your resin flooring, time (and the loss of it) should be taken into account. Here’s an example of a comparison:
It can take 3-5 hours for PU to dry and 3-5 days for it to fully cure.
Acrylicon, on the other hand, may cure completely in just two hours, allowing you to be back up and running with minimal downtime.
This is because Acrylicon is a resin that belongs to the family of thermoplastic resins. Our resins are reactivated by uncured resin, which allows them to cure, uncure when a fresh layer is added and then recure in a monolithic structure. There is no risk of delamination within the flooring system because there are no cold joints.
Secondly, thermoplastic resins offer the fastest cure time in the flooring industry. Acrylicon fully cures in two hours, cutting down on programme time.
Check out our acrylic resin floor installation at the Shangri-La restaurant kitchen at The Shard, which shows how the kitchen was ready to reinstate just 2 hours after the final coat was placed.
Acrylicon Resin Flooring
Acrylicon is the most cost-effective option over the life of the floor. This means you’ll get a high-quality, long-lasting, slip-resistant resin floor at a reasonable price…
You won’t have to worry about ongoing costs or settling for a resin floor that will need to be fixed or replaced on a regular basis.
The cure period of Acrylicon is also unaffected by temperature and a fully regulated cure may be obtained at –20 degrees C, so great for freezers.
Acrylicon’s flooring solution likewise achieves chemical bonding. This means that before fusing together, each new layer softens and solves into the previous one. This eliminates any mechanical joints between the floor’s layers, eradicating the risk of delamination.
We can customise the slip resistance to suit the customers’ requirements. This can be from the lightest scatter of F60 aluminium oxide to a full broadcast of 0.7-1.2mm quartz or something in-between.
To summarise, the price will vary depending on a variety of factors, but the type of flooring you choose will have the most impact on long-term costs.
Quite often, choices are made based on the upfront cost, without considering the most economical solution in the long run, which is why we actively encourage our clients and partners to challenge that rhetoric.
If you want top-quality, long-lasting resin flooring that outperforms others in the market in terms of cure time, longevity and hygiene, then Acrylicon is the option for you.
Note: Acrylicon can perform floor repairs at weekends and out of hours to ensure minimal disruption to your business.
