Concrete is the flooring foundation in many industrial and commercial facilities. Protecting and maintaining these concrete floors is a major focus of Lakeside Painting. For decades, we have been providing a variety of concrete flooring services for our commercial and industrial customers.
Lakeside Painting’s flooring services are numerous and varied. Many of our industrial and commercial customers require concrete floor polishing, epoxy, and cementitious urethane floor coatings, as well as vinyl flooring. We also provide our customers with concrete joint and crack repair, as well as line and safety aisle striping and markings. Whatever your business’s flooring needs might be, we are here to work with you.
Why Lakeside Painting?
Our primary goal is to provide your operation with a clean, safe, and appealing working environment. Lakeside Painting has years of experience and the knowledge to apply the appropriate industrial floor coatings system to match your budget, whether you require a floor that is chemical resistant, non-skid, able to tolerate high traffic, or meets food-grade regulations.
Because we care about the end goal, looks, and protection, surface preparation is the most crucial step in the installation of any flooring system. The new coating will cling to the substrate and give the long-term protection sought by generating a clean contoured surface. This will last in your property for years to come, providing a safe environment that also looks great for your employees and customers alike.
Types of Services and Coating
Epoxy Floor Coatings
Epoxy floor systems installed by Lakeside Painting last a long time and are extremely durable. The service can also be applied directly to concrete floors or over existing epoxy coatings to provide a high-performance, beautiful surface. Throw your hardest industrial work at them, as variable temperatures, strong mechanical traffic, chemical abrasion, and continuous cleaning are all beatings epoxy floor coatings can handle. A high-gloss, hard-wearing, and durable surface may be achieved by applying an epoxy floor coating to your concrete floors.
Applying epoxy coatings to concrete and other floors is one of the most popular and durable options available to commercial and industrial businesses. Comprised of resins and hardeners, epoxy gives floors a strong and rigid plastic surface. Coatings can be thin and smooth or thick, which will smooth out substrate imperfections.
Epoxy floor coatings can be found in all sorts of commercial and industrial structures. Manufacturing facilities, retail stores, warehouses, agricultural plants, and many more industries regularly use epoxy floor systems.

Concrete Floor Polishing
Polished concrete has become one of the most popular floor systems in Wisconsin and the rest of the country in the last decade, and for good reason. Professionally polished concrete is not only aesthetically pleasing and contemporary, but it is also quite practical. Whether it’s for a commercial or industrial setting, it’ll look fantastic, clean easily, and last a long time.
Because it makes use of existing resources, polished concrete is considered an excellent sustainable design flooring choice. Most modern structures are constructed on a concrete slab. Polishing the exposed concrete avoids the energy and material expenses associated with installing a floor covering. It’s something to think about whether you’re building or renovating to become green. Because polished concrete floors are more durable and easier to maintain than many other flooring alternatives, they are considered low-maintenance. It is non-slippery due to its high coefficient of friction. Dust mites, allergy issues, and mold growth are also significantly reduced. This treatment can also minimize lighting requirements while improving natural illumination. Unlike softer materials like wood and tiles, it will not chip or dent.
Polished concrete floors are also highly versatile. They can be found in warehouses, retail stores, hospitality businesses, and even garages.
- Wondering why concrete floor polishing is great for industrial facilities? We’re happy to explain.
- Also worth knowing: polished concrete creates energy savings while enhancing a facility’s ambient light.
- There are a number of benefits of polished floors versus epoxy floor coatings.

Cementitious Urethane Floor Coatings
Cementitious urethane is a floor covering comprised of Portland cement, aggregate, water, and other fine elements. It’s also known as “urethane concrete” or “urethane mortar.” Cementitious urethane floor solutions are widely used in the food and beverage sector because they are extremely stable and long-lasting. Other benefits of Cementitious Urethane for your industrial flooring include:
This material, unlike concrete, is immune to water and other liquids. When it was invented, this attribute made it the ideal choice for the food and beverage business. It’s also a good choice for any business that requires regular cleaning and/or sterilization, such as pharmaceuticals.
This system lacks any seams in the flooring. Maintaining a seamless floor across a building can assist in reducing the number of germs or toxic substances that become trapped in the seams otherwise found in other flooring solutions.
Strong Thermal Strength
Cementitious Urethane, which can tolerate significant temperature changes of -330°F to +240°F, has the highest thermal stability of any product on the market today. These urethanes may also expand and contract at the same pace as concrete, resulting in minimal bending, buckling, or cracking.
These floor solutions have been installed by Lakeside Painting’s flooring technicians for our food processing and distribution customers for decades. They’re still popular because of their mold resistance, thermal stability, eco-friendliness, and ease of installation (no seams in the floor).
- Did you know that it’s possible to install a hybrid Cementitious Urethane and Epoxy floor system? We recently did it, and it was one of the most complex but successful floor installations we’ve ever done on a factory floor.
- Curious about installing cementitious urethane on cold storage floors?
- This is why cementitious urethane floor systems are the best option for food service industries.
Garage Floor Coatings
Our protective floor coverings are extremely long-lasting and flexible. This proprietary technique was created to absorb efficiently into concrete. The technology that allows our concrete floor coatings to achieve optimum adherence is a key feature that distinguishes them. These floor coatings may be applied in any season. They dry in only 1-2 hours and are ready to drive in 24 hours, so there is almost no downtime. However, the best season to apply them is during the summer to allow for quick drying and lack of interrupting weather.
Your commercial garage isn’t just a place for work vehicles. It’s also a workshop and storage space. Lakeside Painting understands that a good garage needs to have well-maintained floors and organized areas for storage and space. This is why we offer professional garage floor, design, and organization services to our commercial and industrial customers. Our team is here to provide you with everything you need to know about garage makeovers, from garage floors to tips on organizing space for your commercial or industrial space. We also provide this service for our residential clients!
Concrete Joint and Crack Repair
Over time, all concrete floors need some degree of joint and crack repair. Instead of installing all-new floors, Lakeside Painting’s floor professionals can repair everything in your commercial or industrial space. We take pride in installing professional-level flooring solutions but also understand that accidents can happen in your existing floor. We provide repairs for all of the following issues and more:
- Vertical edge damage
- Bolt holes
Although fractures in concrete are common and expected, most individuals are unaware that cracks and open seams must be caulked to fix them. Cracks and holes in the joints of your concrete allow water to flow beneath the slab, causing the foundation to wash away and voids to form, in addition to being an eyesore. When the earth freezes and expands, moisture beneath the concrete can create a frost heave. It’s important to repair cracks and damages in your commercial or industrial concrete floor before the problem worsens, becoming more costly to fix.
To repair concrete floors, we use fast-curing products that are durable, environmentally safe, and non-toxic products that are resistant to petrochemicals. We are skilled in working in high-traffic environments and can work weekends and holidays to accommodate your business’s schedule.
Safety Aisle Striping and Markings & Line Striping
Many of Lakeside Painting’s industrial clients require aisle striping for safety reasons. In regions with a lot of fork truck and pedestrian traffic, they are frequently used as lines, hash marks, or chevrons. This form of painting, which is important for establishing safe, controlled environments, can also include floor stop signs and traffic signs, as well as letter and color-coded systems as visual safety aids. Chat with us today about what your commercial or industrial location needs as far as flooring marking and lines. We adapt our work to fit your needs, property size, and budget.
