Concrete flooring FAQs

concrete floor is a strong, durable and long-lasting flooring option which is easy to maintain. This makes concrete flooring a cost-effective option for industrial, commercial and domestic projects. Repairs and replacements are almost never required if the floor is installed and maintained correctly. A concrete floor also acts as the perfect substrate for any floor finishes you could need, such as tiling.

Concrete is an extremely durable flooring option, with a high compressive strength that allows it to endure the pressure of heavy machinery, fork trucks and vans. It is not uncommon for concrete floors to last up to 100 years without significant repairs. This makes it the most popular flooring solution for industrial, commercial, retail, education and public buildings. Adding steel reinforcement to your concrete slab will give it the tensile strength that an unreinforced concrete floor originally lacks.

Yes, concrete floors are generally easy to maintain. They require regular sweeping or dust mopping to remove loose dirt and debris. Occasional wet mopping with a mild cleanser is usually sufficient to keep them clean. Unlike some other flooring materials, concrete floors do not require specialised or expensive cleaning products. Additionally, sealing the concrete periodically can help protect it from stains and make it easier to clean.

As specialists when it comes to the installation of high tolerance concrete floors, we currently undertake contracts from 100m2 up to 100,000m2. The larger the concrete floor, the more precautions must be taken to ensure its tolerance; for example, a large concrete floor requires expansion joints to be inserted when it is laid.

A time estimate will depend on the size of the project, however, we endeavour to complete our floors as quickly as possible without compromising the high quality that we provide; this is to ensure that the concrete flooring installation process causes minimum disruption to your business or site. Our team will be able to give you a better time estimate once they know the specifics of your project. Call us today on 01590 676 585 to discuss.

We install concrete flooring for all sectors. Some of the sectors we have provided solutions for include:-

Our office working hours are Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm. However, when working on your project our team are happy to work outside of these hours, including throughout the night, to ensure your concrete floor is installed in a way that is most convenient for you.

The time required before a newly poured concrete slab can be used varies depending on several factors, including the type of concrete mix used, weather conditions, and the intended use of the slab.

In general, it is recommended to wait at least 24 to 48 hours before walking on the concrete, and 7 days before driving vehicles or placing heavy loads on it. However, it is important to note that concrete continues to cure and gain strength over time, so waiting longer (such as 28 days) is advisable for maximum durability and performance. It is always recommended to consult with the concrete contractor and follow the specific guidelines provided for the best results.

Dirt and dust can cause wear to your concrete floor. It is therefore important to establish a cleaning regime that stops dirt and dust from building up. Power-Floated concrete floors are normally easy to clean with a wet scrubber and vacuum-type machine using neutral (non-acid) detergents. Dry vacuum and sweeping will also remove dust and dirt.

If your concrete floor is damaged, take the following steps:

  1. Assess the damage: Determine the type and extent of the damage.
  2. Clean the area: Remove any debris or loose material from the damaged area.
  3. Repair minor cracks or chips: Use a concrete patching compound to fill in small cracks or repair minor damage.
  4. Consult a professional for major damage: For significant cracks, structural issues, or extensive damage, it is best to consult a professional concrete contractor.
  5. Consider resurfacing or refinishing: If the damage is extensive or you want to improve the appearance of the floor, you may opt for resurfacing or refinishing the concrete.
  6. Take preventive measures: After repairing or addressing the damage, consider preventive measures like applying a sealant or protective coating to help prevent future damage.

Decorative concrete is actually relatively inexpensive when compared to standard flooring options such as ceramic tiling or marble. It is also worth noting that the expected life span of a concrete floor will far exceed that of any other flooring material, saving you money in repairs in the long term.

Concrete flooring can be a cold material but no more so than ceramic tiling or natural stone floors. It is actually possible to harness the natural ability of concrete to store and radiate heat. You can achieve this by embedding radiant heating cables into the concrete when it is being installed. It is also unlikely for your concrete floor to become damp - this would generally only occur if the slab was installed incorrectly or due to poor quality drainage.

As with other hard flooring, it is possible that your concrete floor can become slippery when wet. Applying a high gloss sealer can provide increased traction and help to prevent slipping when mixed with a non-slip additive. A brushed or tamped concrete finish will also provide a non-slip surface. Our experts can give you guidance on the most suitable solution for your specific project.

Concrete floors can be prone to cracking under certain conditions, but proper construction and maintenance can minimise the risk. Some factors that can contribute to concrete floor cracking include sudden temperature changes, improper installation, shrinkage, settlement, and high impact. Using a professional concrete contractor during installation and following their recommendations will help significantly minimise the risk of cracking in your new concrete floor slab.

In general, the weight of concrete can vary depending on its composition and density. However, the average weight of standard concrete is typically around 2400 kg per cubic meter or 150 lbs per cubic foot. It is important to note that different types of concrete, such as lightweight or heavyweight concrete, can have varying weights.
