Many different types of flooring systems are available in homes, yet none are as popular or as long lasting as floor leveling concrete. This method of installation is also more cost-effective than other options, and if properly installed will save homeowners significant amounts of time and money. Although most floors are placed upon concrete foundations, the process of leveling concrete can be done on bare soil too. The term “concrete leveling” is sometimes used interchangeably with “cement leveling.” Self-leveling concrete typically is polymer Modified cement which have excellent flow characteristics and unlike other concrete formulations does not need the addition of excess amounts of water to set. This product can be mixed to the correct consistency according to specific requirements and is widely used to install any type of surface.

Concrete self-leveling concrete has an edge over other commonly used flooring choices because it resists cracking, chipping, and warping. Concrete is a naturally occurring product, and unlike many products can be laid down without the use of adhesives, tools, or man-made materials. It is also considered environmentally friendly, which means the savings can be passed along to consumers. The floor may be laid directly on top of a previously laid ceramic tile surface, or on top of gravel or a similar base material. For a wooden floor, the usual base material is plywood or particle board.

Flooring self-leveling concrete can be ideal for any number of situations. Homeowners who want to install a raised bathtub in their home, or install wood flooring along the walls surrounding their laundry room have many options. In addition to beautiful looks, these types of floor treatments also can save homeowners thousands of dollars by reducing bathroom water consumption. In addition, wet floors take longer to dry, which can lead to annoying slips and falls. In most cases, homeowners can simply walk on their wet floors until they are dry.

Self-leveling concrete floors can also be ideal for homeowners who want to reduce the amount of time needed to install their floors. Traditionally, laying hardwood flooring was quite time consuming, and required the assistance of several men. Today, it takes just two people to lay a standard three-foot wide solid wood floor. Even better, the floors do not need to be completely covered with epoxy or other floor covering products to provide adequate protection from moisture. The concrete floor can simply be laid on top of a plain, clean, flat surface, and then finished with a beautiful wood floor finish.

Self-Leveling Concrete also saves homeowners money. Concrete floors cost significantly less than most man-made alternatives, such as laminates and veneers. Furthermore, concrete tile floors remain clean and dry even when wet. This allows homeowners to simply mop up spills on their concrete tiles, leaving the floor itself to dry in its own time. Many vinyl flooring systems, which use plastic linings that trap moisture, also require a lot of manual labor to keep clean. By contrast, a concrete floor can be quickly and easily cleaned, leaving little residue behind after cleaning.

Installing self-leveling concrete floors is no longer a job for DIY-ers. Thanks to professional concrete leveling products that can be purchased online or at your local home improvement store, this once time consuming project has been transformed into a walk in the park. One application, less than one hour, is all it takes to give your entire home a new, clean floor. With no mess, no fuss, and virtually no maintenance, you can always be sure that your newly installed floors will be safe and healthy for years to come. So start today and have your floors installed by a professional.

Uneven Floors? Grinding, Floor Leveling

Uneven Floors? Grinding, Floor Leveling, Crack Stitching

Concrete Repairman LLC.

If you have an uneven concrete floor, or flooring that has started to wear thin, you may want to try some quick steps to level your floor before you call a reputable contractor for complete floor resurfacing. Many people believe that using floor sandpaper alone will level any floor, but it will not level a concrete floor properly. Using sandpaper on an uneven surface is like putting sand paper on top of a wet sponge. It will just make the floor more wet and stickier. A better approach is to use a high quality floor leveling compound that will level your floor in just several minutes, eliminating all of the sticking, cracking, grinding, and unevenness that have taken place over time from improper floor care. Call 602-418-2970

Floor Leveling In general, floor leveling requires two different approaches – the first involves pounding the concrete with a heavy drum sander. This method is not recommended for floors with exposed aggregate because the drum sander can chip and damage the aggregate. To avoid this damage, the best approach for pounding a concrete floor is to use a hydraulic floor leveling machine. Hydraulic machines are equipped with diamond grinding disks and diamond plate cylinders that generate ultra high pressure to level driveways, parking lots, stairs, driveways, garages, and exterior concrete surfaces. These machines can also grind wood floor beams and banisters. The second approach for leveling concrete involves using chemical grouts and concrete surfactants.

Most concrete grinding jobs are finished off with honing or polishing wheels that buff and shine the floor. However, there are times that this finishing process is not enough to give your floor the ultimate sheen and gloss that you desire. In these situations, there are concrete polishing machines that you can rent to complete the floor finishing tasks that you cannot complete with grinding.

Floor Leveling Compounds for Various Floor Surfaces in Arizona

There are many reasons to use floor levelers in Arizona. Floor leveling compounds can be used to level floors, patios, driveways, swimming pools, garages, workshops and more. When a ground surface has lots of small imperfections it can greatly affect the wear and look of the finished floor surface. Using a concrete leveling compound will help to level and remove these, giving a beautiful, even surface on which to lay your carpet, linoleum, tiles or any other wearing surface.

Many people, when they want to make over an existing floor, do not know how to remove part of the old carpet, so they just “go old school” and buy some new tile, carpet or stone. While this is an option, another option is to simply make use of some self-leveling floor materials. These materials can be found in a wide variety of colors and styles and if you do not have a lot of old carpet to work with, they will still help to level the floor and make it look brand new again.

Some people believe that using floor leveling compounds is an unnecessarily harsh approach to a floor surface. I have found that this is not the case, however, as certain floor leveling compounds are excellent at repairing damage and uneven wear on tile and vinyl floors. Other options such as carpet replacement or sheet flooring can sometimes leave areas of the floor higher or lower than other areas, and some are not particularly aesthetically pleasing either. Using self-leveling flooring compounds in these situations can be a much better solution for both aesthetics and practicality.
