Resin flooring systems are remarkably resilient and hard wearing and bring a sleek and modern look to spaces offering an attractive blend of durability, aesthetics, and versatility. However, like any other flooring material, resin floors are not impervious to wear and tear.

Over time, cracks and joints may appear due to various factors such as heavy foot traffic, changes in temperature, or structural movements. That’s why we provide our customers with a seamless resin floor crack and joint repair service to restore their floors to their former glory – as well as flooring inspections and regular servicing. We aim to repair floors so that they are back in action within 12 to 24 hours.

Sometimes though, cracks are a sign of underlying damage to the concrete base or subfloor, in which case a repair will only be a temporary fix. Installing good-quality stainless-steel kerbs where your flooring system meets walls or pillars can reduce cracks and damage from impact. Where possible, we recommend repairing a floor but are mindful of the long-term costs of repeated repairs.

If your floor is seriously damaged, it may be more cost-effective to remove it and replace it with a new resin flooring system.

What Causes Resin Floor Cracks and Joints

Resin floors are renowned for their seamless appearance but can experience cracks and joint issues that compromise its aesthetics and functionality of the surface. These cracks may vary in size and severity, and come about due to factors such as:

Substrate Movements – Structural shifts or movements in the underlying base can exert pressure on the resin surface, leading to cracks.

Temperature Changes – Extreme temperature fluctuations can cause the resin material to expand or contract, resulting in cracks.

Wear and Tear – High foot traffic, heavy equipment, or impacts can cause abrasions and fissures in the resin floor.

Why Timely Repairs Are Important

Addressing cracks and joints promptly is crucial to maintain the integrity and visual appeal of resin floors. Ignoring these issues can lead to further damage, compromising the structural stability of the floor and creating safety hazards. Not only that, neglecting repairs may lead to more extensive and costly fixes in the future.
