As a business owner, your flooring plays an important role in providing safety for customers and employees, adding a level of aesthetics to your business, and providing practical applications such as being able to withstand excessive amounts of weight. However, if you have just recently considered installing new flooring for your business, you may not know where to begin or what the process looks like. That’s why, in today’s blog, we will outline exactly what our floor installation process entails, so that you will know what to expect while your floors are being renovated.

Step One: Assessing Your Project
The first step in ensuring that PPI Flooring handles your floor installation smoothly and efficiently starts by you requesting that one of our industry experts inspects the current state of your floor. This will make it easy for us to build an approximate proposal for your flooring needs and will help us become aware of any potential problems or roadblocks that your installation might present. With more than 28 years of successful floor installations, a great deal of our success can be attributed to the fact that we take careful measures in assessing all projects before moving forward with any flooring installations.
Step Two: Flooring Recommendations
Once your business’s flooring has been assessed, our staff of professionals will outline a list of recommended flooring materials that we feel would integrate seamlessly within your facility. Having successfully installed over 10,000,000 square feet of floor coating, we are confident that the recommendations made to potential clients are well thought out and are based on years of experience in the flooring industry. Your personalized proposal contains several pieces of vital information such as an outline of how we will install your flooring, samples of our flooring products to help make your decision easier, and a list of system options that will help you get the most out of your new flooring.
Step Three: Preparing Your Floor
Once you have decided which type of flooring and system options will work best for your business, our team of experts will begin preparing your flooring for resurfacing. We will begin by using our industrial shot blasters that utilize fine steel shot to aid in blasting the surfaces of your flooring. This will give your flooring a rough texture that helps us ensure that your sealant and coating bonds securely to your flooring. This process is essential to the quality of your finished product, and will help your flooring hold up against the test of time. Since we are OSHA compliant, we practice the highest degree of dust control so that your business does not become covered in particulates. However, if you wish to leave no stone unturned, we can set up air scrubbing units that will also work to remove dust, debris, and other particulates from the air.
Step Four: Installing Protective Surfacing
After your flooring has been prepared for installation, our professional flooring technicians will begin to apply a protective finish of your choice based on your industry needs. This application of coating will help keep your floors in new condition for many years to come. From quartz and high gloss to metallic and satin, our broad offering of finishes are available to help you find the perfect match for your business. We know that some business owners may not know what kind of finish would work best in their facility, which is why we are happy to help you make a decision after considering the benefits that each finish provides.
Step 5: Following Up and Best Practice Maintenance Plans
There are many steps that you can take to help maximize the life of your floors, and at PPI, we help our customers protect and care for their newly installed flooring with personalized care plans. Not only do we offer our customers customized care plans, we also conduct follow-up visits to inspect the condition of your flooring once it has been installed. This allows us to provide the highest level of satisfaction to our customers by closely monitoring any discrepancies with your flooring that may arise. This level of service and dedication simply can’t be matched by our competitors, making PPI Flooring one of the leading floor installation contractors in the entire country.
