Is polished concrete easy to look after?

Yes! It’s very low maintenance. Any neutral PH cleaner works to clean polished concrete. And, if it’s installed correctly, the surface won’t collect a lot of dirt or dust.

How do you work out the cost?

We take into account things like:

  • Which finish you have chosen
  • How big the job is (in m²)
  • Complexity of work required

Then we’ll factor in the location, time of year, and which hours we can perform the job in.


Do epoxy floors crack?

Epoxy floors are one of the most durable flooring options on the market, but that doesn’t mean they’re immune to cracking. While epoxy floors are much less likely to crack than other types of floors, they can still develop cracks over time, especially when exposed to heat and UV rays.

Which epoxy is best for floor?

Our epoxy flooring is made up of multiple layers and is at least 2 mm thick. If the epoxy is thinner it is referred to as epoxy coating. The difference between the two is that epoxy flooring offers more benefits including durability and smoothness whereas an epoxy coating is a thin varnish used for decorative purposes or to adjust the surface texture.

Do epoxy floors scratch easily?

Epoxy is perfect for a showroom and garage floor alike! Our epoxy floors are scratch resistant, making them the perfect choice for showrooms where equipment and products are being moved around frequently. However, with our range of coating and colour options, you can add a little extra dazzle to make your showroom wow your visitors!

How long does concrete flooring last for?

This depends on the type of concrete flooring being installed. Some general lifespans before the flooring will start to need maintenance are:

  • Grind and Seal — 5 to 10 years
  • Polished concrete — 10- to 20 years
  • Epoxy — more than 10 year when installed on new concrete

These lifespans are for good quality concrete. Softer concrete will shorten the lifespan.

How long does concrete flooring take to install?

This depends on the exact details of your project and the type of concrete flooring being installed. For example, some typical timeframes are:

  • Grinding and sealing generally take 1 day per 50-80 square metre.
  • Polishing generally takes 1 day per 20-25 square metres
  • Larger jobs can have multiple machines and additional staff allocated to produce 1,000 square metres in a week if needed
  • Larger jobs are generally quicker per square metre

Are there concrete levelling specifications for different finishes?

Yes. When creating a concrete subfloor, it is critical to consider what the final finish will be. This will allow you to create a subfloor at the proper depth to accommodate your finish.

Levelling specifications are a ratio of millimetres to metres, defining how much variance (by millimetre) your floors can have over a given space (by metre).

Here are some basic rule-of-thumb specs:

  • Timber: 3 mm over 3 m
  • Carpets: 8–12 mm over 3 m
  • Tiles: Variable depending on the size and thickness of the tiles and the accuracy of their edges
  • Vinyl: Variable, though the smoother the subfloor, the better the vinyl finish.

What is a concrete screed?

Screed is a thin layer of concrete laid as the final element of the subfloor. The purpose of a screed is to create a smooth, level subfloor upon which additional surface finishes can be applied.

Self-levelling concrete is commonly used to create the screed because, as the name suggests, it creates a reliably even finish.

What is self-levelling concrete?

Self-levelling concrete is a polymer-cement mixture. Its makeup allows it to flow quickly and even itself out. It is commonly used as a screed over an existing floor to prepare it for the desired finish, such as timber, tiles or carpeting.
