ResinDek Flooring for Storage Facilities (vs Concrete)

SEP 21 2021 | SELF-STORAGE

The self-storage business has seen massive growth in recent years and the future continues to look bright.

 

Almost 10% of U.S. households use self-storage.

 

With Baby Boomers downsizing (and having decades' worth of accumulated goods) and Millennials moving out, moving on, and taking advantage of trendy downtown condos that boast little space, it's no wonder the need for self-storage units is there.

 

There are a variety of self-storage facility types: climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled, units specific for goods vs paperwork vs vehicles, portable and non-portable units, and of course, one-floor or multi-floor systems.

 

ResinDek® flooring panels from Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products are explicitly engineered for all storage facility types.

 

Save Money Using ResinDek Over Concrete

Companies are always looking for ways to save money.

Choosing ResinDek flooring for your storage facility can help you do just that. A square foot of ResinDek flooring panels will cost you much less than one square foot of concrete. On average, upfront costs are $4 to $5 less per square foot for ResinDek versus concrete. Depending on the size of your storage facility, that could equate to tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in cost savings. In fact, Tommy Attonito, owner of Storage Fox saved $100,000 by using ResinDek flooring panels rather than concrete.

 

Save Time Using ResinDek Over Concrete

ResinDek flooring is one of the most time-efficient products on the market, especially when compared to concrete.

 

Unlike concrete, ResinDek flooring doesn't require any curing time. This means that once the flooring is installed, it's ready to be walked on.

 

Unlike concrete, which requires different types of installation equipment and time and space to cure, ResinDek flooring panels allow units on the first floor to continue operating as usual while the installation takes place above.

 

It comes with a factory finish already applied, meaning you can easily reduce your construction time by three to five weeks (depending on the size of the job).

 

Based out of Ontario, Canada, a customer was expanding his establishment and continued business as usual during construction.

 

"We first installed ResinDek panels on our second level of storage units at our Weston location," said Hal Spradling, owner of All Canadian Self-Storage. "Not only was it less expensive than concrete, but it was also considerably less disruptive to our existing business. The ResinDek panels went in quickly and could be installed directly over existing storage units without evacuating the occupied units while the second level was installed. After three years, the floor still looks great."


 

Summary: ResinDek vs Concrete

On your drive home from work today, notice all the storage facilities available along the road. From major corporate chains to smaller or regional businesses - they are everywhere.

 

Each owner/operator has made deliberate decisions on the material used to construct their facility, and the flooring is a major component of that construction.

 

ResinDek flooring is available in sizes from 4' to 10'. The Gray Diamond Seal® 2 finish has exceptional resistance to stains. ResinDek panels install faster and easier than concrete. Is easily demountable if needed. And unlike concrete, ResinDek panels have a 10-year warranty.
