Our flooring systems vary from 2mm to 15mm for design floors and concrete can be any thickness over 75mm for an unbonded system.
Concrete is made up of four items. These are sand, cement, water, and stone or aggregate. The aggregate is what gives the concrete its strength and wear-ability. During the grinding and polishing process we cut through the top layer, to show the aggregates in all their glory. You can also have a finish with little/no aggregate exposed.
Some are, some are not. Let us know your flooring system plans and we will be happy to ensure you get the best option for your project.
We will take all the necessary precautions within our process to reduce the likelihood of cracking. These steps include but are not limited to, perimeter isolation, control joints, the use of fibres in the mix, the correct slump or viscosity of the concrete and most importantly a skilled team of applicators. However, there are no guarantees against a floor cracking.
The floors are maintained in the same manner as any hard floor surface. Using a mop, bucket and water will clean your floor. For an optimal finish occasionally buff the floor using a Twister pad.
Yes, they are sealed. To avoid any damage to the surface, do not let acidic substances in contact with the floor for an extended period of time as this will erode the sealer.
Yes polished concrete works very well with underfloor heating, as do all of our systems. Polished concrete floors are the best option to use as there are no insulators between you and your heat source. Although it takes longer to heat up, it will retain heat for longer than lightweight screeds.
These cuts are control joints or crack inducers. They are a weakness that is placed on the concrete to induce the crack to form in a straight line. They are generally placed in strategic areas where they will be less visible.
