Our experts are able add a dust topping prior to power-floating by using a topping spreader. Using a dust topping allows you to change the colour of your concrete floor, making it ideal for retail environments looking for a more attractive finish.
In order to create a high-shine, level surface, a power floating machine is moved across the surface of the new concrete floor once bleed water has evaporated. Power floating machines use rotating circular blades to achieve this effect. Power floating is the most common method of concrete finishing we carry out on behalf of clients.
