Polished Concrete – Wales

Polished Concrete – Wales

Concrete Polishing were approached by a client that was looking for a polished concrete floor at their holiday home in Wales. The area in question was the entrance hall to their home. They were therefore looking for a flooring option that was slip-resistant and easily maintainable, and of course aesthetically pleasing. Polished concrete fulfilled all the client’s objectives and more. The property had many quirky features, therefore polished concrete was in fitting with the rest of the decoration.

The client had chosen an Exposed Aggregate Finish. This type of finish is where the aggregate is exposed. The floor was an existing concrete floor. Therefore, to begin contractors had to heavily grind the floor, in order to expose the aggregate. This involved several stages of grinding. Once the grinding stages were complete, contractors could therefore begin to mechanically diamond polish the floor. Again, contractors also completed several stages. Contractors then reached a suitable gloss level.  Lastly, contractors can then apply a sealer to the area. This will help with slip resistance, an objective of the clients. The final result is a perfectly flat, smooth, slip resistant polished concrete floor. The process carried out by contractors was the Husqvarna HIPERFLOOR® system and tooling.

Polished Concrete Floor Gloucestershire

Polished Concrete Floor Gloucestershire

Our client approached Concrete Polishing. They wanted a polished concrete floor at their wedding venue in Gloucestershire. The client was wanting to convert an out barn on their estate into a wedding reception or hospitality area. The overall concept was to keep the flooring style in line with the rustic feeling of the barn, therefore our Rustic Style Finish polished concrete floor was the best option. Due to the venue hosting parties, our client was looking for a flooring option that was low maintenance. Slip resistant and stain resistant. A polished concrete floor furfilled all of these points.

The existing concrete floor was laid by a different company. Contractors had finished the floor to a substandard power float. Therefore in places the floor was uneven. Contractors began by completing a series of lighter grinding steps. This therefore highlighted the natural movement of the power trowel marks and creating a rustic style finish. For contractors to achieve a rustic style polished concrete floor, it is unnecessary for heavy grinding. Therefore no aggregate is exposed. The final stage that contractors complete after the grinding steps is applying a concrete sealer. Contractors then used the concrete sealer, and as a result, this, therefore, aids with protection from spillages and slip resistance. All main objectives that our client had.

Industrial Polished Concrete Floors

Industrial Polished Concrete Floors

A factory was looking for Industrial polished concrete floors at their premises in Newcastle upon Tyne, North East. The current floor was in need of full restoration to improve the overall functionality of the floor. The client, therefore, felt that industrial polished concrete floors were the best option for them, due to them being dustproof, durable and easy to clean, minimal lifetime costs, and non-slippery. These just to name a few as to why polished concrete was the most suitable choice.

The floor had been laid for a considerable amount of time. Continuous forklift traffic was covering the area every day. Over time the floor had cracked, together with discolouration, and had become quite dusty. Therefore, all factors needed to be rectified.

Contractors began with a light grind. Grinding, therefore, removed any residue and painted on the surface. Contractors then moved onto a heavy grind. Grinding would resolve any imperfections within the surface. A clean, level, smooth surface was created by contractors. Contractors could then start to mechanically diamond polish the floor. In addition, cracks were dug out, cleaned and then filled with coloured semi-rigid polyurea by contractors. To finish, contractors also applied a concrete sealer. Contractors carried out sections of the floor at a time. Therefore, work could still take place within the factory as usual. All work carried out by contractors was within a controlled environment.
