Polished Concrete – Worcestershire

Polished Concrete – Worcestershire

Our client was in the first stages of completing their floor. At their home in, Worcestershire. They, however, decided they wanted polished concrete throughout the whole of the ground floor.

The central part of the extension was to be open plan. Therefore, the client wanted to extend polished concrete throughout to include the stairs also. The clients chosen type of finish was the Exposed Aggregate Finish. Therefore, natural aggregate is exposed.

The extension was, however, to be a holiday home. Therefore, the client’s flooring needed to include little maintenance, stain-resistant, and aesthetically pleasing, yet, due to the contractors carrying out polished concrete on the stairs. The concrete would, therefore, need to be slip-resistant. The concrete supplied, laid and finished by us. Once the contractors had placed the floor, mechanically diamond polishing it could then take place. To achieve exposed aggregate finish contractors performed an initial heavy grind. It was the grinding that exposed the aggregate. After, the grinding contractors carried out the stages to mechanically polish the floor. The contractors then added a concrete sealer. This aids with slip resistance and stain resistance. To achieve this finish, contractors, therefore, carried out the same process, except the work was carried out using hand tooling on the stairs.

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.
