Polished Concrete – Gold Crack Repair
A client contacted Concrete Polishing facing the unfortunate problem of their existing polished concrete floor in Cheshire cracking. A different contractor had laid, placed and polished the floor. After inspection, the previous contractors had not added expansion joints to the slab. Therefore, as time had progressed cracking had appeared. This is a common fault in concrete flooring if joints have not been placed correctly.
The client wanted to make the cracks a feature. We felt that at Concrete Polishing we had the perfect solution to make the cracks a feature, a polished concrete gold crack repair. This therefore would be to fill the cracks with a gold joint repair filler.
This specific style of repair is known as Kintsugi. Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken ceramics, or in this case concrete. The concept behind Kintsugi is to accept damage as part of the history of an object. This, therefore, is precisely what our clients wanted to achieve with their floor. To accept the cracks and turn them into a unique feature.
Kintsugi repairs worked especially well on this polished concrete floor in Cheshire. Due to the interior being minimalistic. You could therefore really see the effect, and it really contributed as a feature of the room.
While most people will see a crack as a problem, and whether you wish to conceal it or make it a feature. Concrete Polishing can undoubtedly offer you a solution to restore your polished concrete floor.
