Why Do Gym Floors Need Refinishing?

Gym floors are a major investment for any school, rec complex, or athletic center. Often, they are the main location for gathering, activities, and practices for a variety of sports including basketball, volleyball, gym classes, pickup games, and much more. With all of this use the finish on the floor will deteriorate over time. Especially if the floors are not properly maintained, and even with proper maintenance wear and tear will eventually catch up. Our gym floor refinishing service for gyms in the St. Louis area is unmatched by any company.

How Often Should You Refinish Your Gymnasium Floor?

Gym floors get used and abused, and even when properly maintained the finish will start to deteriorate within 8-10 years. Our team at Professional Floors of St. Louis recommend watching out for warning signs of deterioration and contacting our team if you notice any issues with your floors. In addition to this, another instance may be when the logos and graphics on the court become outdated. Updating your gymnasium floor can be a great way to bring new life into a dated gym.

Signs you may need refinishing

  • If your floor looks old and yellowing

  • When the logo graphics and game lines become outdated

  • Peeling finish in high traffic areas

  • Game Lines are not as vibrant

Gym Floor Preventative Maintenance

Gymnasium floors require a lot of maintenance to keep up with the use they endure on a regular basis. Our team at Professional Floors of St. Louis offer professional maintenance services to help you keep your gymnasium floors looking and working like new. This preventative maintenance service is called screening and re-coating.

Screen and Re-coat

A screen and re-coat consist of roughing up the top layer of finish on the floor with a light abrasive screening disk. This allows the new coat of finish to adhere to the existing finish coats to prevent cracking or peeling. The floor is tacked with a rag until it is clean and a coat of finish is applied to the floor. Then all you have to do is allow the finish to dry (usually 48 hours with one coat). Industry standards recommend screening and coating every 6 months to 1 year (depending on usage of area). Regular screening and re-coating over the life time of your gym floors will help them last much longer.

Finishes Designed for Gym Floors

When it comes to finishing your gym floors, we offer two types of finishes specifically designed for sports, regular activity, and general use. These finishes come in both oil and water-based finishes which our experts can help you decide between. They are specifically designed for gymnasium floors and will last much longer than non sport designed finishes.
