Enhancing the concrete rather than covering it up is fast becoming the gold standard in basement floor treatments, with benefits that extend well beyond aesthetics. You'll notice that the natural variations in concrete and permanent staining or marks get camouflaged into the floor and add 'beauty marks' and marbling - all characteristic of concrete.
This blog is about a recent job we completed for a client in Kelowna. They wanted their existing concrete basement floor finished. Their house was only a few years old and the concrete floor in the basement hadn't ever been treated or sealed. We had to spend a little extra time preparing the surface, removing and buffing out stains. Gareth did a great job removing lots of the deep penetrating stains that developed naturally to the surface, with regular wear and tear. Any untreated concrete surface needs a good cleaning and preparation to make sure the finishing products adhere to the surface of the concrete. After the preparation stage is completed, we apply numerous applications of sealers and high traffic wax to achieve this look and protect the surface.
Here is what the floor looked like before.
And here is what it looked like after we were done with it.
The finishing sealers/waxes we apply to concrete floors give it a luster or uniform reflective quality... oh gorgeous natural concrete, how we love you all bare and naked and simply beautiful!
