CONCRETE FLOORS COMMERCIAL AND DOMESTIC
It’s your floor. Whether it’s etched, painted, coloured, stained, polished, textured, patterned, cut or exposed aggregate, the choice is yours. We make your flooring vision concrete.
Make your concrete floors a feature. With a variety of design options, patterns, colour combinations and finishes to choose from, concrete gives you loads of options. Talk to us about structural, decorative and speciality concrete floor options. We lay concrete floors in shops, restaurants, offices, workshops and homes throughout Northland.
When compared to many other flooring options, concrete floors stand out due to their affordability and ease of maintenance. Many of our clients in Mangawhai, Snells Beach, Omaha, Leigh, Mahurangi West and other coastal areas chose concrete; a great option in regions with a lot of sand. Another of their many advantages, polished concrete floors have great thermal properties; they absorb heat during the day and slowly release it during the night. Concrete floors are also a good alternative to carpet for those with allergies.

CONCRETE LAYING – OUR PROCESS
We lay concrete that lasts.
Stage One: Excavation and preparation
Before any concrete can be poured, the site needs to be prepared: cleared and/or cleaned and a sub-base fill placed and compacted.
Stage Two: Boxing and forming
Once the sub-base is prepared, the area is boxed up. We make concrete boxing from wood, metal or plastic.
Stage Three: Pouring
Wet concrete is brought to the site. We pour into the boxing and our team uses shovels and rakes to move the concrete, ensuring there are no voids or air pockets.
Stage Four: Early finishing
Once wet concrete is poured we use a large metal or wood board to screed the top of the concrete. This helps compact and consolidate the concrete, beginning the smoothing and levelling. Once the surface has been screeded, the concrete is floated using a special trowel.
Stage Five: The finish
Once trowelling is complete the final finish can be applied to the concrete. The most basic type of finish is a broom finish: a rough textured surface. Other types of finishes include stamped, textured, polished or smooth. Ask us about the various concrete finishes you can have at your place.
Stage Six: Curing
Once the finishing has been carried out, the concrete can rest and begin to cure. The curing process lasts around 28 days, with the first 48 hours being the most critical. The colder the temperature, the longer it will take concrete to cure. Generally speaking, you can begin using your concrete around 3 to 4 days after pouring, and you can drive and park on your concrete 5 to 7 days after it’s been laid.
Stage Seven: Sealing and maintenance
Concrete is a durable product, and in terms of maintenance a quality sealer is always a good idea. A cure and seal may be applied the same day or up to a month after the concrete is poured. Exterior concrete sealers can last anywhere from 1 to 5 years. Need some advice on sealers? Ask one of our concrete contractors.
