Any flooring option installed over concrete requires a smooth, flat, and clean substrate. In addition, there may be residual product leftover, including carpet glue, tile mastic, or epoxy paint. Old products must be completely removed for the new flooring product.
If you have loose concrete on the surface, we grind this off and get to a sound surface. Surface patching can fix imperfections. We utilize a series of joint fillers and patching compounds to make sure the floor is prepared per the flooring manufacturer’s requirements.
In special applications, large stock removal is required so that the new flooring installation will meet adjacent flooring. Terrazzo typically requires the removal of ¾” of concrete stock when installing in an existing building. The shaver can remove the stock necessary for the terrazzo or patching compounds.
Almost any structurally sound concrete floor, whether new or old, can be polished.
Because polishing is a multi-step process, customers can choose the level of polished concrete sheen, from satin to high-gloss, to meet their maintenance and aesthetic requirements. This versatility makes polished concrete an ideal flooring material for a variety of applications.
Common concrete polishing applications include:
Not only are polished floors easy to clean because they require only occasional damp mopping, they also hold up well to heavy forklift and foot traffic. Additionally, they eliminate the need for messy waxes or coatings, as well as the associated labor, time, and expense to apply them.
