Lightly Polished Coloured Concrete

March 25, 2010

We were recently in Gas Town in Vancouver and decided to re-visit a project we completed about 4 years ago.  We have had more inquiries about Inform Interiors flooring than almost any other project with public access that we have done.

Polished concrete - Inform

The floor started as a structural slab that was poured and raked out (by others).  On top of that coloured concrete was poured (by others).   The floor was badly marked from the placement and was cracking due to the structural slab sucking the moisture out of the finished slab and lack of expansion joints (among various other factors).

The client was looking for a light coloured neutral floor that would showcase the furniture and brought Danamac in to consult on how to accomplish this.

Danamac came in and pre-filled all the cracks to minimize the enlargement of them.  We then gave to floor a light polish to even out and refine the floor.  The result is a one of a kind  floor that showcases the clients furniture beautifully. 4 years later …. it remains interesting , unique and gorgeous!

Danamac recently completed this beautiful polished concrete project in a brand new house.

Danamac was brought in at the early planning stages.  We were able to give some direction to our customer at this stage.  The customer wanted a unique floor, acid stained with deep polish.  Danamac was able to be present during the concrete pour to seed the floor with some glow in the dark aggregate.  Because we were involved in the early stages we were able to get in and put in strategically placed sawcuts to minimize the uncontrolled cracking.

This project started out with good flat hard concrete and a customer who was willing to think outside the box.  The result is a beautiful polished  concrete floor!
