Commercial Polished Concrete – Merseyside

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.
