Floor preparation: laying the groundwork
Although they look smooth to the naked eye, brand new concrete slabs are never completely flat. If you have just installed concrete as a foundation for other coverings, you’re going to need floor preparation. Following our meticulous process, your new surface will be perfect for the next stage of installation.
Concrete floor preparation performs a range of functions. Firstly, it is a great way to remove any mess and debris left by other tradespeople, including plasterers and painters. Concrete surface preparation also removes the high and low points that naturally occur in the concrete pouring process. Having a completely flat and even surface allows for other flooring methods — like tiling, carpet, and floorboards — to more easily adhere to the concrete.
