A concrete overlay can make all the difference to tired old floors

Is your office looking a little run down and tired? Does the floor of your store show the wear and tear of years of traffic?

You can bring these tired old floors back to life and give your office, retail shop, plant or warehouse a fresh new look.

A concrete overlay can make all the difference. This type of overlay can add years to the life of your floor and create a specific ambiance designed especially for your environment.

Here are some things to consider when contemplating a concrete overlay:

  • The conditions, wear and tear your floors be exposed to
  • Certain polished surfaces might not be appropriate for wet conditions
  • High traffic areas may require a darker colour to give the floor a longer life and keep maintenance to a minimum

How much maintenance is required?

This type of surface when coated with a sealer, is stain-resistant to dirt and grease. All that’s required is routine cleaning and maintenance.

What is the installation cost?

Costs average between $3 to $10 a square foot depending on installation specifics. Please note that more elaborate finishes can cost more.

Quartz broadcast flooring is an incredibly durable, seamless, non-skid floor resistant to stains from oils and chemicals, easy to clean and antibacterial which made it a fantastic solution for this heavy use industrial application. Check out our images below.

Create 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 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.

Flake broadcasts floors are just one of many flooring options

Flake 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 key to 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. Want to learn more about these products and systems? Give us a call at 403-547-5597 to discuss your specific needs. Watch our video below:
