Here is an outline of some of the most popular types of commercial flooring as well as their pro’s and cons:

Carpet Tiles

If you’ve been in any sort of office, then you’ve likely seen modular carpet tiles. These are the square cuts of carpet pieced together to create one solid floor. While modular carpet tiles offer the ability to choose patterns and are a better commercial flooring option than broadloom carpet, carpet tiles don’t offer durability, a clean work environment or great looks.  In fact, it will be very easy to tell if the installation is not done properly.


This is a popular choice for commercial flooring – very easy to install however not so durable. The glue on vinyl commercial flooring tiles can come loose, causing the tiles to lift-off around the corners; and the surface does eventually wear down, causing issues for cleaning and color deterioration. Simply put, it can’t stand up to heavy foot traffic or heavy machinery.

Commercial Epoxy Flooring

Commercial epoxy flooring is one of the best options for high-traffic commercial areas since it’s tough, resilient, durable, and easy to customize. Epoxy floor coatings are applied directly to the floor in a thick layer, creating a resinous surface, and once the epoxy has cured, it provides a hardened, polished surface that can successfully hide cracks, chips, and other issues on the floor beneath. They are generally used over a concrete surface.

Epoxy floor coatings come in a wide variety of colors and styles, and they can be textured to create a non-slip surface. They are shock-resistant, stain-resistant and highly water-resistant. You can even customize them to match the unique style and needs of your business.
