Concrete surface preparation for epoxy floor coatings, urethane cement flooring and epoxy sealers is a time-consuming task that many contractors perform begrudgingly and are tempted to overlook altogether. But if you’ve ever skipped this essential first step in the process, you undoubtedly learned the hard way how critical it is to the success of the job. At CMS, we can remove existing coatings and adhesives or provide shot blasting to prepare your substrate for a new flooring system. We own the latest equipment to provide these services in a timely manner.
CMS will work with you and your staff to determine what the best method of concrete surface preparation that will be most effective for your project and long-lasting.
Concrete surfaces are prepared prior to resurfacing concrete to look like plain concrete again or to be upgraded to a decorative finish.
Surfaces are also prepared prior to various floor-coating installations in industrial, commercial, residential and institutional applications. The most important characteristic for resurfacing materials or floor coatings is the texture of the concrete. After the concrete surfaces are cleaned and prepped, the tiny grooves left behind create an abrasion for a new epoxy or urethane cement floor to interlink and grab onto. This bond provides you with a strong and durable working surface. Regardless of the types of flooring system used, the bond strength will only be enhanced through adequate floor preparation.
