Polished Concrete Commercial Premises – Café

We were approached by a customer that was in the process of renovating an old building into a cafe. He was looking for polished concrete at the premises in Telford, West Midlands.

Initially, contractors from a different company undertook the project. However, unfortunately, they were unable to meet the client’s expectations. This is where we stepped in.

The client was looking for a variable finish, with a light gloss. The aggregate is slightly exposed but not uniformed. The client wanted this particular type of finish due to functionality being the key. The main objectives were to create a functional, aesthetically pleasing floor that was resistant to slip and spillages.

The previous contractors had laid the floor to a low standard, and contractors had also filled the joints poorly. Our contractors used decorative semi-rigid polyurea to repair the joints in order for the slab to contract. We could then begin the grinding process.

Therefore, a concrete sealer was applied, this ensured that the customer’s main objectives were fulfilled. Slip and stain resistant.
