Contractors Get Big Advantage with Section 179: Fast Facts on How Buying Now Can Expand 2017 Business

Have you ever wished you could buy new equipment to grow your business and also help your bottom line? The Section 179 deduction allows for businesses to deduct the full amount of the purchase price of equipment up to $500,000, as long as the equipment is purchased before the end of December 31, 2016.

Fast Facts:

  • Section 179 is aimed at general business equipment. If you plan to use the equipment you are leasing, financing, or buying for business purposes in 2017, then it most likely qualifies for a Section 179 deduction.
  • Section 179 deductions are simple to handle. Simply buy, lease, or finance your equipment and fill out IRS form 4562.
  • Section 179 is a “Use- It-Or-Lose-It” write-off that ends on the 31st of December, so it makes sense to utilize the tax savings while you can.
  • Section179.org offers a calculator where you can estimate your savings on qualifying equipment.
  • The equipment you write off for Section 179 must be bought in the tax year in which you are claiming the deduction.

Reasons to Buy Now:

  • Expand your services in 2017 to offer coatings, decorative concrete and polished concrete by investing in the right equipment to do the job
  • CPS Grinders, burnishers, auto scrubbers, and vacs, including electric or propane versions, qualify for this deduction

Surface Profile Inspection Guide from SP1 to SP10

A surface profile of concrete or asphalt is a number associated with the material’s desired roughness or texture and its general appearance. It helps in determining if the surface is fit for a specific purpose. Roughness can be an indicator for:

  • Wear-ability
  • Friction coefficients
  • Performance in terms of cracks or corrosion
  • Adhesive properties

Our Surface Profile Inspection Guide helps in determining the desired surface profile of your concrete or asphalt and indicates the proper diamond tooling and machinery required for achieving it during the preparation process.

Surface Profiles (SP1-SP10)

The lower the surface profile (SP) number (SP1), the flatter the surface. An SP10 rating is an extremely rough surface. An accepted definition of surface profile is “the average distance from the peaks to the valleys of the surface, as seen through a cross-section of the prepared substrate.” The range of variation with your specific concrete slab, substrate or asphalt depends on its strength, composition, aggregate and finish. The final surface must allow for the secure mechanical bond of any sealer, coating or marking material, so make sure the surface is free of any dirt, oil, films, paint, coatings, cure, sealer and any other material before creating your desired surface profile.

CPS Diamond Tooling Guide

To help in choosing the correct CPS diamond tooling for a number of grinding or polishing jobs, we’ve put together a one-page, full-color CPS Diamond Tooling Guide outlining seven of the most common removal and polish jobs, the right tooling, recommended machine speeds for each job and the average production per hour that contractors can expect.

Attributes of CPS Diamond Tooling

CPS Black Series (first 3 tasks): Black series metal bonded tooling is a traditional trapezoid-type tool that is soft bond. Life expectancy is an average of 8,000 to 10,000 square feet. Available in 6,16, 30/40, 60/80 and 150 grits.

CPS MACH Series (task #4): The CPS MACH series tooling cuts like resins and wear like metals. They don’t glaze up on hard concrete and can replace metals on 90 percent of floors. They are built tough, with an 8,000 square foot life span, increasing production over 100% as compared to dry metal bonds on hard concrete. MACH tools need no water, taking on hard concrete and grinding down to exposed aggregate if needed.

CPS Sektors (last 3 tasks): CPS Sektors are one-size-fits-all tooling that works equally well on soft, hard or medium floor surfaces. Sektors combine reduced labor costs with excellent tooling life to create the lowest cost per foot dry polishing system on the market.
