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.

Commercial Polished Concrete

Commercial Polished Concrete 

Why “real” Polished Concrete is the way forward for your flooring option.  

Is “real” polished concrete flooring the way forward for commercial flooring? We say yes, and this is why.

It has always been so that in commercial flooring spaces such as retail, restaurants, cafés and office spaces, overlays and micro cement have always been the preferred choice. Both coatings when applied to an existing surface including tiles or wood. It imitates actual concrete.

As time has progressed it appears Architects and Designers are becoming more familiar with the concept of “real” polished concrete. Than opposed to overlays and micro cement. They are ever increasingly looking st cost-effective and “green” flooring options. These therefore, are just 2 of the reasons why a commercial polished concrete floor is the way forward when choosing your commercial flooring.

Overlays and Micro Cement

We will always find many commercial premises where an overlay or micro cement is more suited. Where access is minimal for example. This type of concrete finish will always hold its own within the flooring industry. However, it is soon becoming apparent that “real” polished concrete will be here for the duration of time.

When considering the durability of a concrete floor, it is a commercial polished concrete floor that contractors will have refined using a mechanical diamond process that will undoubtedly stand the test of time.

Using, Husqvarna HIPERFLOOR® it can be guaranteed that the functionality of the floor and aesthetics are not compromised over long periods of time. The contractor cannot guarantee functionality with other flooring options.

Many larger outfits are now looking to polished concrete for a commercial flooring option. These include car showrooms, office space, restaurants and cafes. They are finding that polished concrete is economically the wisest choice, is resistant to wear and spillages. Environmentally friendly. And therefore easily maintained at a low cost, just to name a few benefits. All important contributing factors when deciding on a flooring option.
