In the beginning, when a concrete floor is poured and floated, each project turns out a bit different. So many factors can make a big difference in the outcome of a concrete floor, such as temperature, humidity or the quality of the cement mix used. Therefore, no concrete floor is totally perfect, and each surface can have a problem or two that needs correcting before floor polishing can take place.
On the Level
One major problem with a lot of concrete floors is whether they are level or not. Some floors slope noticeably from one side to the other, while others can slope from the middle outward or vice versa. Either way, this sloping can cause various problems for the occupants in residential homes or commercial buildings, such as desks and tables that wobble. Fortunately, the problem of a sloping or uneven surface can be remedied in most floors.
Don’t Attempt a Repair
An uneven concrete floor is a problem that a do-it-yourself person should not try to fix. Without sufficient knowledge and experience, you could unintentionally create an even bigger problem with your floor that can cost a lot more money to repair. Call a floor specialist if you want professional results.
Topping Concrete Floors
With uneven concrete floors, the quickest and most effective remedy for the situation is to use a self-leveling compound that fills in the low spots and makes the floor completely level. Floor topping can fix a great many problems floors to create an aesthetically pleasing surface for floor polishing.
When a concrete floor is topped with a self-leveling compound, this procedure automatically corrects many other floor defects besides an uneven surface, such as minor cracks, scratches or gouges, small holes and rough spots. The result is a flat, level surface free of all blemishes and perfect for floor polishing or floor staining.
