Adamson Construction was briefed by the client to remove and replace the existing flooring with a durable, easy to clean flooring system. The existing vinyl flooring had de-bonded allowing dirty water to penetrate the sub-floor causing foul smells and trip hazard issues.
The first task was to remove the sheet vinyl flooring and scarify the sub-base. Once the floor was sufficiently prepared, a cement-based latex was laid to level the sub-base, then a tack coat primer was applied on top.
A quartz aggregate was then scattered onto the wet primer to create a physical bond. This was then allowed to cure overnight before a second tack coat primer was mixed and applied.
Finally, the floor coating, a Flowcrete, Flowshield S/L, was mixed and applied at 4mm thick. This was applied using the back roll technique with spiked rollers to remove any air pockets.
