Q: IS THE WORK GUARANTEED? A. Yes. All our work is fully guaranteed against faulty workmanship. We take caution to ensure you get the highest quality finish.
Q: WHAT IS OUR LEAD TIME TO START A PROJECT?
A. It varies throughout the season but we can mobilize from as little as few days to at times up to 3 to 4 weeks lead time may be required before start. Always best to book your project in as early as possible. Please call us to check.
Q: WHAT IS POLISHED CONCRETE?
A. Polished concrete is multi step process that requires a combination of several steps of diamond grinding and then using several resin tooling to polish the concrete as shown.
Q: IS THERE DIFFERENT SHEEN LEVELS WITH POLISHED CONCRRETE?
A. Yes. Since concrete can be polished and finished from 400 to 3000 grit finish you can adjust the sheen and smoothness levels of polished concrete.
Q: CAN ANY CONCRETE FLOOR BE POLISHED?
A. Not every concrete floor can be polished. Very uneven or wavy concrete slabs or badly damaged concrete may require to have the top surface of the concrete to be resurfaced with special self leveling concrete that is also polishable.
Q: IS POLISHED CONCRETE SLIPPERY WHEN WET LIKE EPOXY?
A. No. Polished concrete in not considered a slippery surface. Most polished concrete floors today are finished to 800 grit finish which is safe for both commercial and residential flooring.
Q: CAN YOU SELECT THE AMOUNT OF AGGREGATE EXPOSED IN POLISHED CONCRETE?
A. Yes. We can grind more aggressively to expose more aggregate or use less aggressive diamond tooling to expose less aggregate prior to proceeding to polishing phase of the process. Most common is what is called “salt and pepper” as shown and is considered light to medium grind.
Q: WHERE IS POLISHED CONCRETE NOT RECOMMENDED?
A. Polished concrete flooring is not recommended in commercial kitchens, automotive repair garages, residential garages or anywhere where food or any acidic liquids are likely to be spilled on regular basis. In such cases it’s best to use epoxy applied onto concrete to protect such surfaces from corrosion.
Q: WHAT IS POLYASPARTIC COATING?
A. ORIGINAL POLYASPARTIC CHEMISTRY
Was originally introduced around the early 1990s making it a relatively new class of concrete coating. Polyaspartic is actually an aliphatic polyurea as it is derived from the chemical reaction of aliphatic polyisocyanate component and a polyaspartic ester component, which is a new type of amine/diamine functional coreactant for aliphatic polyisocyanate.
To make a long story short this product is superior in performance to all epoxy coatings as it is more durable, more abrasion resistant, cures more rapidly and at much lower 0C temp.
Q: WHERE IS POLYASPARTIC COATING BEST APPLICATION?
A: Polyaspartic we apply for clients in garages for premium finish in residential car garages, colder indoor environments, and on commercial job sites where rapid turn around time and extra durability is needed as versus epoxy.
