Out of all of your possible business expenses, renovations can be the costliest.

For this reason, when considering renovating commercial properties, you need to straddle the middle ground of adding sufficient value without spending too much.

So, does replacing commercial flooring make good business sense if you are looking to make money when you sell the property?

Commercial flooring can boost property value if you do it right

Choosing commercial flooring willy-nilly without doing suitable research is the easiest way to shrink any possible profit margins – and can result in the installation of an inappropriate flooring type that then needs to be replaced in the short term.

To give your commercial renovation the best chance of success, follow WJD Flooring’s top tips for success!

Prepare the floor properly before installation and choose the right type of flooring
Once your old flooring is removed, it is important to consider how your subfloor needs to be finished to extend the life of the finished flooring you have chosen.

For example, if you are installing sturdy vinyl flooring, such as vinyl sheets or vinyl tiles, you need to ensure that your subfloor is clean, any bumps and irregularities have been rectified with levelling compound, and a suitable vinyl adhesive is used to create a long-lasting seal between the subfloor and the vinyl.

Each commercial flooring type will have bespoke installation requirements and instructions, so it’s important that you research these and implement them during installation.

If you aren’t prepared or don’t have time to do the work yourself, reach out to WJD Flooring today to get a commercial flooring renovation quote. If your building is in Liverpool, Manchester, or Warrington, we can find an expert team to lay your flooring for you – from floor prep to cleaning after installation.

Choose eco-friendly options

As we learn more about the environmental impact that can come from business operations and the production of goods, more and more commercial properties are looking to make better environmental choices – especially with flooring.

In an effort to reduce waste and support the circular economy, major commercial flooring brands are now crafting flooring from recycled products.

Often, this flooring can be recycled again once it reaches the end of its life.

Our favourites include:

Desso carpet tiles
Paragon carpet tiles
Forbo vinyl
Polyflor vinyl

Make the easier choice

Most commercial premises don’t have the time or the staff to spend hours cleaning and maintaining their flooring – making easy-care flooring the best option.

If this is true for your business, choosing the right flooring is fundamental. Our favourites include:

Entrance matting
Carpet tiles
Vinyl tiles

These flooring types require very little upkeep and maintenance, and regular cleaning with a vacuum, brush, or mop are all that’s needed to keep them looking good.

Similarly, as well as being easier to maintain, these types of floors are hardwearing – meaning they will last longer and won’t need replacing as often!

This means less money spent on upkeep and material costs upfront with more left over for other important business needs.

Finally, as each flooring type is individually laid, they are easy to replace at the end of their lives without taking up the entire floor. This means if accidents occur and one carpet or vinyl tile is damaged beyond repair, you can simply replace one tile instead of the whole floor.
