Polished Concrete – Mid-Wales

Polished Concrete – Mid-Wales

Our client contacted us regarding a project in Mid-Wales. They were in the early stages of renovating outbuildings into commercial offices. Our client had looked into many types of floor finishes. The client, however, decided that a polished concrete floor was the best option for their project in Mid-Wales. Polished concrete was the clients chosen finish due to it being hard-wearing, low maintenance and aesthetically pleasing.

Concrete Polishing installed, finished and polished the concrete.  The clients chosen type of finish was the Exposed Aggregate Finish.  Where aggregate in the concrete is visible.

Once the concrete had been laid contractors were then, therefore able to power float the surface. Contractors then left the surface to cure for around 28 days. The surface is then ready for contractors to mechanically diamond polish the floor. Contactors achieved the exposed aggregate finish by firstly heavy grinding the surface. After the grinding stage is complete contractors then begin to mechanically polish the floor. Once complete, contractors can apply a concrete sealer. This helps with slip and stain resistance.

Commercial Polished Concrete – Merseyside

Concrete Polishing was approached by a client that was wanting to restore their premises in Liverpool, Merseyside. The client was turning the premises into a restaurant. They had looked at many types of floor covering. However, polished concrete was definitely their first choice for the premises in Merseyside.

Contractors had to meet objectives due to this being a restaurant and constant foot flow. These included, slip resistance, stain resistance and easily maintained. And, of course, aesthetically pleasing. Our client felt that a polished concrete floor would meet all of these objectives.

 

 

A different contractor had laid the concrete to a good standard. The clients chosen type of finish was the Exposed Aggregate Finish. The type of finish that the client wanted was achieved by firstly carrying out a heavy grind. This, therefore, exposes the aggregate. Post this process, the contractors begin the mechanical diamond polishing process. Contractors then added the concrete sealer to the surface after the polishing process was complete. The sealer is a big factor in making sure that the client’s main objectives are met. These being slip resistance and stain resistance.

Commercial Polished Concrete Chester

Commercial Polished Concrete Chester

We had been approached by a client that had recently purchased commercial premises in Chester, who was wanting a polished concrete floor. The building was formerly a bank. The floor was in a poor state of repair. Therefore, needing full restoration for this to become a fully functional floor.

 

 

The client was wanting to make the premises into a Cafe. The intentions were to have the premises glass fronted with timber cladding added. Therefore, in keeping with this style the client requested a Variable Style polished concrete floor. With a low gloss finish where the aggregate exposed is variable.

 

 

In order to achieve a Variable style polished concrete floor, we restored the floor fully. Grinding, repairing, joint rebuilding and mechanical diamond polishing took place. Husqvarna HIPERFLOOR® system, to polish the floor.

The commercial polished concrete floor in Chester, extensively repaired using specialist joint rebuilding products. Before this process, the contractors lightly ground. Joints were rebuilt then and filled. The Husqvarna HIPERFLOOR® diamond polishing system was therefore carried out. The contractor applied the sealer. The sealer prevents stains from penetrating into the surface and aids slip resistance on the commercial polished concrete floor in Chester. Lastly, the team lightly burnished the polished concrete floor before remaining furniture added.

The final results were exceptional, to say the condition of the floor at the beginning of the project.

Concrete Polishing UK transformed the commercial polished concrete floor into a functional floor as requested by the client, the programme, the budget were adhered to. All in all, therefore a successful restoration with excellent results!

Concrete Polishing strives for visual excellence with every floor, trying to exceed the expectations of our clients. It is rewarding to have that recognised and affirmed by experts in concrete technology.

Hencote Winery is a fantastic venue which has received rave reviews for its wine, its restaurant and for its accommodation. The restaurant commands exquisite views of the Shropshire hills. We crafted the restaurant floor using integrally coloured cement and a decorative golden aggregate. The design of the restaurant allows natural light to flood into the room, bringing out different colours in the floor at different times of the day. The exposed aggregate and high gloss reflect light, helping brighten the space after sunset. Hencote selected clustered single bulb lighting, directed by opaque shades. The lights are reflected in the floor’s dark surface, creating a starlight effect.

This was a challenging project. With such a large space, and few architectural features, the floor is a major factor in the overall look of the restaurant. Concrete Polishing was excited to be part of this project and it is rewarding to see it appreciated by the PICS and the decorative concrete community.

Since Hencote we have continued to develop as a company, building our knowledge and skills in the field of polished concrete. We aim to build on this success and continue exceed expectations, creating attractive and hardwearing floors across the UK.
