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.

What makes concrete floor preparation so essential?

  • Ensures a flat surface
  • Surface is clean and ready for new flooring
  • Reduces future quality issues with laid flooring
  • Rectifies holes. cracks and flooring irregularities

Frequently asked questions

Consider floor preparation as the final safeguard in floor projects. Whether you are applying concrete veneers, tiles, carpet, or floorboards, the surface needs to be absolutely perfect for proper adherence.

This process performs many other functions, including:

  • Ensuring that the concrete is structurally sound
  • Patching holes and gaps in the concrete
  • Cleaning the floor of debris, dirt, and dust
  • Promoting a completely level floor

The exact process will differ for each job based on the floor and desired outcome. However, there are two distinct types of floor preparation processes that we use to get the best results.

Grinding is the process of using high powered equipment to literally grind away surface imperfections, leaving a flat and smooth surface, ready for the next layer.

Shot-blasting blasts high velocity equipment against the substrate, leaving behind the perfect surface for other materials like vinyl, carpet, and epoxy to adhere to.

At Policrete, we follow this basic process to get your concrete floor grinding job underway:

  1. Contact us and let us know about your project
  2. We’ll assess your site and tell you what we think is best
  3. We’ll work with you to produce a quote and timeframe
  4. Our team will get to work preparing your new floor
  5. You can inspect our job and admire its perfection

No. The process is likely to differ depending on the final outcome you want for your flooring. For instance, floor preparation and grinding for the installation of carpet will be different to the process required for laying terrazzo tiling.

Thankfully, Policrete offers a range of services in this segment, including floor preparation for:

  • Epoxy finishes
  • Laminate flooring
  • Ceramic tiles
  • Underfloor heating

No job is the same, and we don’t give blanket costs. It’s best to get in touch with Policrete for an accurate quote. Costs vary based on a range of factors, including:

  • Type of flooring
  • Surface area
  • Job site challenges
