CARRcrete IndustrialFloor Gloss was recently chosen above all other systems that had tendered for the 40,000m2 project in the north of England. Chosen for the quality of finish and abrasion resistance and not solely on cost. Continue reading CARRcrete IndustrialFloor Chosen For Huge New Contract
Last Thursday we carried out a quick little test patch on a concrete floor for a Blue Chip company who needed a cleaner, smarter and more professional looking floor with which to greet their customers. With that in mind we stripped away the layers of paint to expose a salt and pepper finish to the concrete slab and proceeded to diamond polish through to a low gloss finish as well as hardening and sealing the surface.

Our new apprentice David had never laid a floor before joining us a few weeks back.
Here we are throwing him in the deep end by giving him the task of laying our storage room floor (no pressure). As we mentioned, David had never laid a floor or used the tools in the video prior to this day. He was simply given a few instructions beforehand and throughout the installation.

When it comes to polished concrete flooring there are two main ways to achieve a polished look. You either polish the floor with diamond abrasives moving from coarse to very fine using up to 11 different grades of tool. This creates the uniformity and fineness of scratches which provides the gloss and clarity. This is the way we polish concrete floors, the look and durability is awesome.

This week we have completely altered our concrete floor grinding and polishing system, improvements are massive, almost unbelievably good. But what led us to this change in technique? Continue reading Improved Concrete Floor Polishing Service
Here we have a test patch in a very busy commercial garage. The owners were looking for an alternative to the current painted floor that had degraded with the continual wear tear placed upon it. Resin flooring had been considered as an option but once we showed them exactly how hard and durable our polished concrete flooring is, we certainly opened a few eyes. We have nothing against resin flooring, it keeps us in business removing the delaminated resin coatings to grind and polish the concrete below 😉 Continue reading Polished Concrete Commerical Garage Floor
Here are a few photos of a recent test patch we undertook in an industrial unit, please note we didn’t have time to fully clean the area, so the floor is technically unfinished and dirty. But I think you’ll get an idea of the potential from the photos. Continue reading Industrial Polished Concrete Floor
We are proud to announce that Carr Restoration Ltd have been selected to create another polished concrete floor for an A ‘list’ property development to be featured on Grand Designs next year.
We really like this project as it combines curved corridors, opening living areas and lots of glass. The perfect surrounding for our diamond polishing concrete floors. The whole team is really looking forward to working with Peter and his family to create stunning polished concrete flooring in our own unique way.
Our process starts the first week in November, stay tuned for updates.
