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). 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.

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.

We dropped by to take a few photos before the crew start filming tomorrow and friday, quickly grabbing the photos before the floor was cleaned and staged, but I have to say the polished concrete flooring is still looking great considering the amount of tradesmen that have been across the floor in the last few months.
