Polished concrete has aesthetically pleasing characteristics, warmth, depth of colour and an ability to capture and reflect light. Polished concrete is environmentally friendly, hard wearing, smooth and an easy to clean surface.
The application of densifiers during the polishing process creates the smooth glossy, dustproof finish that makes polished concrete so desirable. Sealers don’t have to be applied to polished concrete. As a result polished concrete has a very low maintenance and life cycle cost.
There are many different levels of finish available with polished concrete. From a basic floor polish specified for practicality in an industrial warehouse through to architecturally specified homes where highly polished concrete floors are a feature
We run the latest HTC floor grinding machines and diamond polishers. We polish concrete floors to the HTC Superfloor standard. Contact us if you are thinking of specifying polished concrete in your new build our want to look at polishing an existing floor.
Towelled concrete overlays are applied from a few millimetres thick over damaged or corroded concrete. Overlays are many times harder than concrete, durable and maintenance free once applied. We have used concrete overlays extensively in dairy sheds and industrial workshops.
Concrete overlays can also be used for decorative effect. Overlay can be tinted to a range of colours to give a lease of life to dull concrete floors, driveways or footpaths. Colour can give the effect of a more expensive stone surface or we are able to create the appearance of tiles or marble at a fraction of the cost.
We apply a wide selection of concrete sealers including:
- sealers that can be applied the same day concrete is poured and assist in the curing process
- matt to high gloss sealers & coatings
- extremely hard wearing petrol and chemical resistant sealers
- deep penetrating sealers that significantly reduce the absorption qualities of concrete without changing its appearance.
- paving sealers that bind jointing sand and seal pavers.
- concrete overlay sealers
A great way to brighten up, decorate and give character to existing concrete floors, pathways and driveways. There are a number of options available all producing different depth of colour and levels of durability. Our skilled use of colour application can create the effect of marble, tile or a rich coloured stone finish. Colouring options include:
- Cement based paints
- Coloured sealers
- Acid stains
- Solvent Stains
- Water based stains
