Flake Broadcast Flooring Surface Prep

flake broadcast floorFlake broadcast flooring has a scattering of decorative flakes sandwiched between the base coat and the finishing coat. The flakes are either polymer (plastic) or reflective metallic, also known as chips, and come in a wide range of colours and sizes. The flake system has a granite or stone appearance.

Surface preparation is the basis for all of our coating jobs. We take prep very seriously as it is the leading cause of failures in coatings.

Some manufacturers offer a 20 year warranty on their products, however, if the floor hasn’t been prepped properly, those manufacturers will not replace the product and the client is left to battle with their installer.

The key to a successful coating, like any construction project, is a contractor with integrity! Hardscapes maintains long-term relationships with manufacturers, suppliers, and clients alike by providing high quality products with high quality installation.

Flake broadcasts floors are just one of many flooring options that Hardscapes is proud to stand behind. Take a few minutes to view our video.

Want to learn more about these products and systems? Give us a call at 403-547-5597 to discuss how we can give you the flake broadcast floor that’s perfect for you.

Concrete floors looking a little lacklustre?

Original floors that have become worn and faded from years of wear and tear and are in need of an update can be revitalized in a very short period of time. A new concrete floor restoration will only take a few weeks to bring to life. 

Prep work begins with clearing the original floor and levelling low spots in the existing area, as in the images below, and will ultimately resurrect these old and dated floors to a brand new beautiful finish.

Perfect concrete structure every time

Even though concrete is a substance that can be easily mixed, you can really run into problems if it is not worked properly. These issues include scaling, discoloring and shrinkage to name a few.

Discoloration or discoloring is one of the most common.

If you are using the same materials, mix and batch, your concrete should have a consistent color. Changes in concrete color can occur just by using two different cements or if a chemical from a job site gets added to the mix. Even different water sources can change the color of the concrete.

Solving discoloration problems:

  1. Discuss your tolerances with the supplier
  2. Water must be completely evaporated before concrete can be finished
  3. Make sure the entire surface is uniformly cured
  4. Use a consistent form release agent

The experts at Hardscapes Inc. create perfect concrete structure every time. If you have a concrete project you’d like to get under way, give us a call at 403-547-5597.

Ever considered concrete for your kitchen floor surface?

concretekitchenfloorThink about it. It’s the one place that you are constantly cleaning and wiping. You are always dropping sharp objects, leaving nicks and gouges and chipping in whatever flooring you have in place. It’s just constant maintenance.

Now concrete on the other hand, can be made to look like any surface you want. With new advances in concrete finishes your floor can look exactly like any tile or even wood finish that ever appealed to you.

The difference is, no maintenance. Concrete is virtually indestructible. The life span of your floor is unlimited and if you tire of the look, a quick surface renewal and you’ll have a brand new look without the inconvenience of demolition of the old floor and installation of the new.

Your options are limitless! For information about our concrete floors designs for your kitchen give us a call at 403-547-5597.
