Polished Concrete – Wales

Polished Concrete – Wales

Concrete Polishing were approached by a client that was looking for a polished concrete floor at their holiday home in Wales. The area in question was the entrance hall to their home. They were therefore looking for a flooring option that was slip-resistant and easily maintainable, and of course aesthetically pleasing. Polished concrete fulfilled all the client’s objectives and more. The property had many quirky features, therefore polished concrete was in fitting with the rest of the decoration.

The client had chosen an Exposed Aggregate Finish. This type of finish is where the aggregate is exposed. The floor was an existing concrete floor. Therefore, to begin contractors had to heavily grind the floor, in order to expose the aggregate. This involved several stages of grinding. Once the grinding stages were complete, contractors could therefore begin to mechanically diamond polish the floor. Again, contractors also completed several stages. Contractors then reached a suitable gloss level.  Lastly, contractors can then apply a sealer to the area. This will help with slip resistance, an objective of the clients. The final result is a perfectly flat, smooth, slip resistant polished concrete floor. The process carried out by contractors was the Husqvarna HIPERFLOOR® system and tooling.

Commercial Polished Concrete Floors

A client approached Concrete Polishing looking for commercial polished concrete floors at their property in Suffolk. The area was to be a car showroom to display high-end classic cars. The client’s main objectives were an easily maintainable floor, slip-resistant and resistant to spillages. And of course aesthetically pleasing. Polished concrete floors, therefore, met all the client’s objectives. This, therefore, is the client’s first choice for their flooring.

The clients chosen type of finish was the Exposed Aggregate Finish. This is where aggregate is exposed to the surface. Concrete Polishing was asked by the client to mechanically diamond polish the floor. A different contractor had laid the floor. Contractors began by heavily grinding the area, this is necessary to expose the aggregate. This therefore also eliminates any imperfections that may have occurred when placing the floor. Once contractors completed the heavy grinding process, the mechanical diamond polishing process can therefore start. Contractors complete several stages in this process, and they can reach a certain gloss level. Contractors can then start to apply a sealer to the area. This aids with slip resistance and stain resistance. The final stage of the polishing process.

Polished Concrete Floor Gloucestershire

Polished Concrete Floor Gloucestershire

Our client approached Concrete Polishing. They wanted a polished concrete floor at their wedding venue in Gloucestershire. The client was wanting to convert an out barn on their estate into a wedding reception or hospitality area. The overall concept was to keep the flooring style in line with the rustic feeling of the barn, therefore our Rustic Style Finish polished concrete floor was the best option. Due to the venue hosting parties, our client was looking for a flooring option that was low maintenance. Slip resistant and stain resistant. A polished concrete floor furfilled all of these points.

The existing concrete floor was laid by a different company. Contractors had finished the floor to a substandard power float. Therefore in places the floor was uneven. Contractors began by completing a series of lighter grinding steps. This therefore highlighted the natural movement of the power trowel marks and creating a rustic style finish. For contractors to achieve a rustic style polished concrete floor, it is unnecessary for heavy grinding. Therefore no aggregate is exposed. The final stage that contractors complete after the grinding steps is applying a concrete sealer. Contractors then used the concrete sealer, and as a result, this, therefore, aids with protection from spillages and slip resistance. All main objectives that our client had.

Industrial Polished Concrete Floors

Industrial Polished Concrete Floors

A factory was looking for Industrial polished concrete floors at their premises in Newcastle upon Tyne, North East. The current floor was in need of full restoration to improve the overall functionality of the floor. The client, therefore, felt that industrial polished concrete floors were the best option for them, due to them being dustproof, durable and easy to clean, minimal lifetime costs, and non-slippery. These just to name a few as to why polished concrete was the most suitable choice.

The floor had been laid for a considerable amount of time. Continuous forklift traffic was covering the area every day. Over time the floor had cracked, together with discolouration, and had become quite dusty. Therefore, all factors needed to be rectified.

Contractors began with a light grind. Grinding, therefore, removed any residue and painted on the surface. Contractors then moved onto a heavy grind. Grinding would resolve any imperfections within the surface. A clean, level, smooth surface was created by contractors. Contractors could then start to mechanically diamond polish the floor. In addition, cracks were dug out, cleaned and then filled with coloured semi-rigid polyurea by contractors. To finish, contractors also applied a concrete sealer. Contractors carried out sections of the floor at a time. Therefore, work could still take place within the factory as usual. All work carried out by contractors was within a controlled environment.

Polished Concrete Floors – Herefordshire

Polished Concrete Floors

A client contacted Concrete Polishing that was wanting a polished concrete floor at their home in Herefordshire. The property was a new build project. Our client had chosen a polished concrete floor as their type of flooring because it has minimal maintenance, stain-resistant and eco-friendly and of course aesthetically pleasing. These were all crucial factors due to the polished concrete floor stretching throughout the downstairs.

Our client was wanting to create a minimal, modern feel to the house. The floor had been laid in conventional concrete and was power trowelled by a different contractor. There were slight imperfections, so contractors had to carry out a Variable Style Finish. This is where there is slight aggregate exposure. To create a variable finish, contractors carried out an initial light grind. This enhances the characteristics created by the power trowel and exposes minimal aggregate. The floor could then be mechanically diamond polished. Contractors mechanically polished the floor to a 400 grit. Contractors then applied a concrete sealer to help with slip resistance and stain resistance.

 

 

The polished concrete floors stretched throughout the whole of the reception of the house, the results were fantastic. Concrete Polishing made a smart, modern and minimal space. The results, therefore, exceeded our client’s expectations. Another brilliant job by Concrete Polishing.

Polished Concrete Floors – Scotland

Polished Concrete Floors – Scotland

Concrete Polishing were contacted by a client that was in the process of renovating a whisky distillery. The client felt that a polished concrete floor was the most suitable option for their project in Scotland. The client was looking for a flooring option that was low maintenance, retained heat well, and of course, was aesthetically pleasing. Therefore, polished concrete floors in Scotland was the better choice.

A different contractor had placed and power trowelled the existing floor. The contractors that laid the floor, unfortunately, had issues on the day of placement, this, therefore, resulted in the floor being substandard. The client, therefore, instructed concrete Polishing to restore and rectify any problems that had occurred.

The type of finish that the client was wanting was a Rustic Style Finish. No aggregate exposed to the surface. To achieve this type of finish, the contractors carry out a series of very light grinding stages, and no heavy grinding is needed. Once the contractors completed these stages, contractors then applied a sealer to the floor. This aids with slip resistance and stain resistance. Also, a major problem that occurred was surface cracking. Contractors filled these with semi-rigid polyurea.  The client decided they wanted to make a feature from the cracks. Therefore, a slightly lighter polyurea was applied. The feature looked brilliant and added to the overall rustic style finish that the client wanted.
