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.
