Polished Concrete – Telford West Midlands

Polished Concrete – Telford West Midlands

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.

Polished Concrete – Process

Due to the client wanting a variable finish the initial grind only needed to be light. This, therefore, exposed the aggregate where needed. The contractors then progressed onto mechanically diamond polish the floor. Being commercial premises with reasonably high traffic it was essential that the floor was slip-resistant, and any spillages would not affect the overall condition or aesthetics of the floor. Therefore, a concrete sealer was applied, this ensured that the customer’s main objectives were fulfilled. Slip and stain resistant.

As you can see the standard of the overall result was very high. Our contractors managed to significantly improve the existing slab without having to replace the concrete. This was also achieved within the timescale needed for the premises to open to the public. Another amazing result by the team!

Polished Concrete – Wrexham, Wales

Polished Concrete – Wrexham, Wales

Our client had acquired a barn conversion. And was potentially thinking of choosing the flooring option of Polished Concrete at their project in Wrexham, Wales.

They were looking for a flooring option that was in keeping with the character of the barn.  As well as keeping it modern and stylish. They, therefore, opted for a mechanically ground polished concrete option with a Rustic Style Finish. The main part of the conversion was to be open plan.  With the property being all on one level they were looking at polished concrete extending throughout.

 

 

A contractor installed the underfloor heating, the slab was placed and finished to a power trowelled standard. Due to the client wanting a Rustic Style finish a deep grind was not necessary. Contractors, therefore, carried out lighter grinding on the area. This, therefore, magnifies the movements of the power trowelling, which in turn gives you the rustic yet modern characteristics of this type of finish. Due to the polished concrete being throughout the property it was vital that the floor was resistant to stains as well as slip. After mechanically grinding and polishing the floor, the contractor applied a concrete sealer, this aided with the clients main objective of slip and stain resistance.
