Top Floor Pro’s MicroCement Approach
Because we may be dealing with a poor surface to start with we may need to carry out additional work to the floor to achieve the required results:
We would test the floor for moisture content, if there is a high reading a surface DPM would be applied to eliminate moisture preventing a bond of the MicroCement. If the surface is uneven an application of a levelling compound would be applied to achieve a smooth workable surface or ‘a blank canvas’.
Once the above has been completed we can start to apply the Micro Cement, this would be in three trowel applied coats these being, one base coat and two finish coats allowing for drying between coats, once all coats are complete dry (dependant on temperature, moisture etc) the surface would be lightly abraded to smooth the surface. If stains / designs are required these would be added at this stage of the process.
Once all of the above are completed the floor would be vacuumed and ‘tagged’ to removed any fine dust, and an application of a minimum of two coats of seal, there would be a choice of, high gloss or matt finishes.
Addition of Stains can be dramatic
Bright colours can be used or for a more conservative appearance, earth tones are still appealing.
If one colour is required this is possible, however, please be aware that as we are trying to achieve a natural appearance, there will still be variations in tones of any particular colour.
Where the benefits of a MicroCement system are not required, we can refurbish and enhance good quality floors to give a pleasing natural look, through diamond polishing, staining and resealing.
