Why Investing in a Building Envelope Now Will Seal the Future of Your Business

Published June 14, 2021


It’s not easy to look at the growing list of improvements you want to make within your company and prioritize funds accordingly for something like, wait for it…floor coatings. You may question if it’s a need or a want. We are not here to tell you that building envelopes are for everyone in every business, but instead we’d like to take a second to educate readers on how adding building envelope technology promotes more than the aesthetics of your flooring, but it protects the very people who walk on it every single day. So if you don’t care about your employees and customers, stop reading. We kid, but in all seriousness it’s your environment, take control of it.

For all of the non-building infrastructure nerds out there, the wonderful world of Wikipedia states, “a building envelope is the physical separator between the conditioned and unconditioned environment of a building including the resistance to air, water, heat, light, and noise transfer.” It’s a very specialized practice of very precise combinations of architecture, chemistry and engineering practices that enhances structural appearance, and extends the life of your building and we geek-out over perfecting this service for countless customers. How? By addressing an assortment of critical functions related to new and existing construction; including concrete protection, concrete repair, wall system solutions, water management, and protective floor finishes and coatings.

Our range of floor coating services have been applied to countless floors across a full spectrum of industries including food packaging plants, stadiums, animal services buildings, professional kitchens and children’s hospitals. All of our projects have specific needs to add coatings with exceptional traction to prevent trip and falls, limit seams to promote the ease of cleanliness and provide finishes that fend-off corrosive liquids. While we want everyone to look down and admire the stunning floors that we perfect, we prioritize the people who will travel on top of them.

Another benefit we’d like to highlight is the reduction of energy consumption which according to the office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, “Within the Emerging Technologies research portfolio, building envelope technologies have substantial potential to reduce energy consumption in buildings.” While this is a significant enough reason to invest in your building’s infrastructure, we want to highlight that coding your floor protects the structure, the products being manufactured inside your structure, the environment and most importantly, employees and customers.

If you’re ready to take that next step in securing the future of your structure or simply want to learn more about the services we provide, reach out! We’re here to find you custom solutions that fit your business’s needs.
