Epoxy Flooring

Epoxy flooring is a popular choice for industrial flooring. Formed by liquid hardener and liquid resin that combined together make a floor that is very durable and that can withstand the abuse of high traffic and heavy equipment, epoxy is durable. Other advantages to epoxy are that it is chemical resistant, slip resistant and can fend off bacteria with its bacteria resistance.

Epoxy flooring does not have grout lines, so it is easy to clean and hygienic. It is suitable for medical facilities, clinics, restaurants and factories where floors can be subjected to dust, gases or chemicals. Epoxy is an easy maintenance solution, featuring an appearance that is highly glossy. Epoxy flooring is not the same thing as an epoxy coating, which is a thin 2mm coating that is applied to subflooring. We have the best selection of epoxy industrial flooring in Houston, Texas.

Polished Concrete

Polished concrete has remained a popular flooring choice for commercial and industrial structures throughout the years. Polished concrete will let you create a finish in the pattern or color of your choice. You could even incorporate the company logo or name into the flooring design. Other advantages to concrete are that it is very durable, offers easy maintenance and is environmentally friendly.

Another advantage to polished concrete industrial flooring is that it is resistant to stains, spills, moisture, dust mites and bacteria. Oftentimes, polished concrete can outlast epoxy or epoxy coating, which may require a touch-up or reapplication every few years. A disadvantage to polished concrete commercial flooring is that if your employees have to stand on their feet for several hours a day. Concrete flooring is hard, so it can result in fatigue quickly.

If your employees do stand for hours on end, the problem can be lessened by using mats or rugs to soften the standing area. When feasible, a subfloor can be installed to help reduce fatigue. Shan’s Carpet and Fine Flooring has installed polished concrete throughout the Houston, Texas, area.


In some situations, carpeting can be a good choice. It provides comfort for employees, so it can be great for some office situations. Other advantages to carpet is how they can be customized to comply with your needs. They are also a relatively inexpensive flooring solution.

Another good option is carpet tiles, as they provide easy installation and damaged tiles can easily and quickly be replaced. Don’t just select any carpet for a commercial business. While carpet may have to be replaced after a few years, you can select higher quality carpet that it is stain resistant and that can handle high traffic. Carpeted areas are usually warmer than areas that are concrete or tile, so it can help with utility costs as well.

Vinyl Flooring

A cheap commercial flooring option that is moisture and water resistant, vinyl flooring is available in a variety of solid colors, patterns and can even be customized. It is easy to install quickly. But, depending on how much traffic crosses the area and how the floor is used, vinyl flooring may not last as long as other options and may require regular maintenance and cleaning. Vinyl flooring is a good choice for a staff room, break room or office kitchen. This flooring is susceptible to damage, scratching and stains. Shan’s has one of the largest vinyl flooring selections in Houston, Texas.

Rubber Flooring

Rubber flooring is a great choice for high traffic areas, such as gyms, retail stores, sporting venues, schools and other industrial locations. It is resilient being water resistant. It provides a soft and comfortable anti-slip surface so those walking in the area are less likely to slip and fall. As a natural insulator, rubber can help maintain the room temperature. It is extremely durable and can be installed easily and quickly, however, it is not as versatile as other options. It can be easily scratched and does get dirty quickly. There are fire-resistant and hypoallergenic versions available.
