A recent Polished Concrete Restaurant Floor for a new restaurant in Lincoln, Arkansas turned out to be one of the most challenging floors we’ve worked on in some time. The results were phenomenal and our Glossy Floors crew lived up to its name.
What made our polished concrete restaurant floor so difficult was based on the age of the concrete and poor installation. The new owners estimated the floor was poured back in the 1950’s.
The lack of skill when pouring the concrete added to the degree of difficulty. It was very wavy and, as anyone who has ever put a concrete polishing machine on a wavy slab knows, it was a very bumpy ride!
As we do with the majority of our polished concrete floors, we grouted after we completed our metal diamond steps. While a single grout coat would normally be enough, this particular polished concrete restaurant floor needed to be grouted 3 times. It was also densified 3 times.
A polished concrete restaurant floor has got to be grouted if maintenance and shine is a priority. It usually is. It is a crucial step that cannot be ignored. Without grouting, the open pores in the concrete will detract from the overall shine.
As you can see, our polished concrete restaurant floor turned out beautiful.
