Concrete restoration & crack repairs
We use top products to achieve a top finish.
CRACK REPAIR PROCEDURE
We open up the crack with an angle grinder and fill the crack repair epoxy. Or do a stitch repair, cutting channels at right angles to the crack and epoxying in steel dowels. Once set the repaired crack is ground flat with the concrete surface. The repaired crack is often stronger than the surrounding concrete.
Chips and crumbling concrete, especially on the sides of joins are repaired in a similar manner.
The repairs are done in the same way for industrial or domestic applications, but domestic repairs need to have either a tinted sealer over the entire area or and overlay system otherwise the repaired cracks will be visible.
See some before and after shots below.
Concrete cleaning and sealing
We remove algae and dirt from concrete whether it be exposed aggregate, stamped or plain concrete and apply a clear or tinted resin based sealer, which brings it back to life and retards the formation of algae and dirt and makes the concrete easier to clean.
CONCRETE PAVERS, COBBLES OR TILES
Need concrete pavers or tiles cleaned and sealed? Sealing enhances the 'look' and makes them easier to keep clean.
Old stamped concrete can be brought back to life with a good clean and seal
A colour tint is added to the sealer which gives the concrete a far more uniform look. Many colours available.
A cementitious non slip coating is is applied to existing exterior concrete surfaces, bringing them back to life and making them look brand new. Available in many colours.
Old grout is removed and replaced with either the same grout or a flexible joint filler.
From subtle variations in colour to very bold effects, this is the most versatile of finishes. The concrete is acid stained using various colours and dilutions to literally change the colour of the concrete by permanently staining it. A highly creative experienced applicator is required to achieve the desired finish. The floor is sealed with a hard wearing clear sealer.
Is taking the world by storm and although often laid as a highly glossy finish, it is also available in a matt finish. It does need to be applied by a creative, experienced team. Two or more colours are applied and blended by various techniques to create a highly unique effect, where no two floors are ever the same.
Epoxy flake floors
Very hard wearing and available in a number of colour combinations. Epoxy flake is ideal for garage floors, kitchens, bathrooms, rumpus rooms and commercial applications.
For those who enjoy a very hygienic and clinical one colour floor, this product is ideal for house, garage and commercial floors. Many options are available from thin highly economical roll on applications to 'mirror like' finishes.
This is the most popular option because of its beauty, durability and low maintenance. It does not wear because the stone/pebbles in the concrete are exposed and you literally drive and walk on the pebbles. It is available in many pebble and colour options. It does not need to be sealed, but can be sealed with a clear resin sealer which really brings out the colour of the pebbles and makes it easier to remove oil spills etc. Ideal for driveways, pathways and pool surrounds.
Coloured concrete can be finished in a boomed or troweled finish. A broomed finish is used on steep areas and where a non-slip finish is required. Many different colours are available, but lighter colours show the dirt and in the case of driveways, Tyre marks can detract. A solution is to seal the concrete with a non-slip clear resin sealer, to prevent vehicle Tyres from leaving marks.
