Concrete polishing project in Stockport, Cheshire

Concrete polishing in residential homes is becoming more and more popular.  Many designers are been asked to provide these types of floor in homes and the work place.

Concrete polishing stockport can help provide these floor due and with their bespoke characteristics and unique looks, polished concrete floors are becoming very popular around manchester and cheshire.

Concrete floor can be polished to 3 different finishes. Minimal aggregate showing,  slight aggregate which is know as salt and pepper look or full exposure which is sometime referred to as a terrazzo look polished concrete.

The spec on this project was to create a full exposure of the aggregate with a low to satin shine.  Does to the amount of concrete that required grinding to exposure the aggregate we needed to cut very deep to achieve this.

On this projet we chose to use HTC super flook equipment.   This machine is very heavy and the diamond concrete tooling allows the concrete floor to be cut deep and level. Also using a super vac, dust is keep to a minimum which is a requirement when working in a working home environment.

Once the concrete floor is diamond ground it can be cleaned down and the it is ready for the polish process.  As this floor required a satin finish the floor was only taken to a level 4.  After level 2 we density the floor which make it much hard and resistant to foot traffic and staining.

Can All Concrete be Polished in Manchester

​Generally all solid and structurally sound concrete flooks can be polished.  The only problem is, whether is can yield te results that you desire.  Depending in the mix, the type if aggregate and tmhow tue concrete has been pours and process after laying, generally determine the result that can be achieved.  If the concrete is new or old it can be polished but again depending on the look required it’s not always possible to achieve the required finish.

For example we recently looked at a job in manchester,cheshire where the requirement was for highest shine possible but with minimal exposure. Unfortunately this project needed a compromise.  Due to the unevenness off the floor and the amount of power trowel marks the surface was rough.  You can polish and rough surface but the only way to do it is to cut passed all the rough parts to get a smooth finish that can then be polished.  So why is this a problem.  Well cutting deep will reveal and exposure aggregate which is not wanted.  This customer has agreed that the shine was more important and some exposure is fine.  Next week we will carry out and sample patch to achieve a quailty point for the project to move forward. 

Concrete Polishing on new floors

New floor required around 28 days before you can start work on them.  We recommond a minimum of c35 grade and specify the installation to be a smooth as possible to aid the polishing process and also help create the best possible final result.

Concrete polishing on old or existing floors

These often require extra prep work before the concrete polishing process start.  We made need to remove old paint or coating and heavy build up of dirt ad foot traffic. Also floors that are very wavy, cracked or soft and sandy are not alway the best to polish and may require desification and extra cure to get a decent finish out of them. We happy to access the floor and check it’s suitable to polishing.  We also offer test sample patches in manchester and cheshire so you can see the result on your floor.

How to remove a stain from cheshire Marble

Marble floors are wonderful but can become stained and require maintenace from time to time.  There are a number of things that can effect the shine or look of your marble floor.  Below I will detail the most common problems and explain a little about them.   I will also try and put together a series of blog posts to explain the problems and issues with the tiles in more detail.  

The most common problems with stockport floors are, etch mark or acid damage, organic stains, oil stains, scratch and traffic wear.  

These problems can happen more often depending on household traffic, lifestyle and how you protect and maintain your floor.  

Below is an example of an acid etch mark 

Many people believe that acid damage is a stain but this is not true.  The etch mark is simply where the acid has burnt into the tile and caused tiny pin pricks in the floor and it makes the tile rougher.  As a result the light can not bounce off the tile as it does around the acid etch mark and makes it as the picture, a dull spot.  the only way to remove this is to sand the tile smooth again using diamonds pads.  Until you cut past the damage and make the area smooth, the light will never bouce of the tile in the same way as it should.  
Once polished and restored the floor will look like below.

  1. I have also detailed some more pictures showing how the marble floor looks when it’s polished
