Commercial Painting and Concrete Floor Repair in Andover, MA

Posted on Tuesday, February 14, 2017

When it comes to the successful care and treatment of a concrete floor, you have to consider what’s under the surface just as much as the surface itself. Even the most expertly chosen and applied floor system will fail if the substrate is compromised, whether by moisture, decay, latent symptoms of damage, or another factor specific to your industrial or commercial environment.

At Kaloutas Painting, we never apply flooring band-aids, but rather do what is necessary to ensure the total function and durability of your facility’s surfaces.

To show you what we mean, join us for a project tour of this office space renovation in Andover, MA.

How Do You Fix Holes in a Concrete Floor?

Our client requested that we lend our flooring expertise during the complete remodel of a commercial office space in Andover. As part of the update, a new tile floor was going to be laid throughout the large lobby.

Unfortunately, the concrete had deteriorated to the point where holes had broken through the substrate, creating an uneven, weak surface. Around the weakened areas there also was loose concrete that would only cause more trouble down the road.

We took the following steps to remediate the issue:

  • We ground the concrete using a scarifier
  • To dislodge any loose concrete, we followed the scarifying process with our chipping hammer
  • With the loose material removed, we applied Super Prime acrylic primer (this bonds beautifully, and it creates a secure foundation for the coming cement)
  • Finally, we installed Pro Plan LC self-leveling cement

These incremental steps, from thorough preparation to building a smooth, fresh profile, came together to create a healthy concrete surface that was ready for the new tile flooring.

Interior Commercial Painting

While the floor was the most unique aspect of this project, we also painted a variety of interior surfaces as well. These included:

All of the work was finished on-schedule, contributing to a fresh, completely renovated office space.
