Need your industrial floor resurfaced?

Quality from Start to Finish

The industrial floor finish process begins with surface prep. It’s always the key to a successful floor installation. The old floor in the video has been used for many different businesses over the years, and once complete will be home to an extensive car collection.

The process began with a deep grind using a 32” machine that weighs more than 1500 lbs. The combination of weight and the correct diamond tooling ensures a deep grind to fully remove all surface contaminants. We also ran a shot-blaster over the rougher areas to ensure a clean floor down into any divots and depressions.

Once a good clean floor is achieved, we skim the floor out with a floor patching material to fill and smooth the depressions and other deficiencies prior to coating. Once that has dried, a light grind over the patch and we are ready to begin the coating process.

Our base coat of epoxy goes down nice and even with a squeegee and backroll before we broadcast the flake. This client chose a gray and white mix with 7% silver micah for a unique look that will have a gorgeous finish.

Concrete Resurfacing

BandageNo matter how much care you take with your concrete driveway it will eventually start to wear.

If your home was built in the last fifty years your driveway, and probably your walkway, are built with concrete. These outdoor features of your home need to be made of materials that are durable and long lasting, and concrete fits the bill.

What do you do when signs of aging start to appear? Whether it’s pitting due to oil or other petroleum products leaking from vehicles onto the surface, or from shifting soil that leaves cracks in the cement where grass and weeds can grow, your driveway can become an ugly welcome home.

If your driveway is looking like it may need to be jack-hammered out and re-poured that can be a big expense.

Here’s the good news, don’t just put a bandage on it, there is another solution. Concrete resurfacing is a way to bring those aging concrete walks and drives back to life.
