Industrial Concrete Floor Polishing Test Patch

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.

CARRcrete PROtop Concrete Overlay Training Pour

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).

Polished Concrete Commerical Garage Floor

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

Another Grand Designs Project

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.
