Concrete Preparation Services

If you’re considering either painting or polishing your concrete floor, or if you’re perhaps thinking of tiling or carpeting it, one crucial thing to keep in mind is the need for suitable concrete surface preparation. Making sure everything has been sufficiently cleaned and cleared before any treatment or finish has been applied will ensure the best chance of long-lasting, high-quality results. Think of it as being similar to painting a room in your home; before applying a new coat of paint, it’s important to strip the old paint from the wall, as not doing so can cause the new paint job to peel, bubble or crack. Should you require someone experienced in the preparation of concrete surfaces for your project, get in touch with the team at Granicrete.

Why Preparing Concrete for Epoxy is Important

Granicrete provides trusted concrete preparation services for everything from the renovation of old residential properties to the laying of tiles on a new concrete floor. There’s a detailed process involved to prepare any concrete surface for Epoxy coating or for replacement tiling or carpeting. It’s crucial to ensure that any residual glue or adhesive substance left behind by tiling or carpeting is removed and cleared away from the concrete base. Leaving remnants of glue from the previous tile work or the old carpet can prevent any new treatment or finish applied to the concrete surface from maintaining its adhesive properties, thus compromising the quality of the work. Granicrete’s professional approach to the preparation of concrete will ensure that your flooring is completed to your 100% satisfaction.

Concrete Surface Preparation: The Process

When it comes to preparing concrete for Epoxy coating or for the laying of new carpet or tiles, Granicrete adopts a five step process to ensure effective, long-lasting results. The process is as follows:

  • 1. Evaluation of the concrete layer – Before any concrete preparation, it’s important to assess the concrete for its general condition, any existence of impurities (including adhesives, dirt or dust), and determine the most appropriate method of preparation.
  • 2. Excision of any weakened or damaged concrete.
  • 3. Thorough cleaning of the concrete surface – This is done to remove any dirt, dust and residual glue from the concrete.
  • 4. Creation of the surface profile – Where we use the most suitable tools and equipment to best get the job done.
  • 5. Repair of any abnormalities in the concrete surface – These can include cracks, weakened joints and uneven areas.

Once the concrete has been prepared, it can then be finished with Epoxy or another finish. To organise a measure and quote with Granicrete, get in touch with us today.
