Retail Stores Converting from VCT to Polished Concrete

The ability to lower yearly maintenance costs on flooring has moved many retailers to polished concrete floors over traditional Vinyl Composition Tile (VCT) in the past few years. This move greatly benefits new stores, as well as existing stores that are currently operating.

While most people are home sleeping, the flooring conversion can be completed at those existing stores and therefore, not disrupt their normal business operations. QuestMark has defined the process of converting floors from VCT to polished concrete. It starts with significant planning and coordinating with the retailer's corporate team and the store team that will be impacted by the process.

The ACE Hardware Operating Store in Woodridge, IL recently had QuestMark complete a polished concrete project, which allows store owners to see for themselves the natural beauty of a polished concrete floor. In addition to the aesthetic benefits, there are also economical, functional and environmental benefits of polished concrete over VCT. Check out the time lapse video.
