If your concrete floors have seen better days, you might be considering ripping them up and replacing them with something brand-new. Before you do, consider that there is a quicker and cheaper option with self-levelling concrete. Done properly, self-levelling concrete is a quick and cost-effective method that can level out uneven surfaces and have your floor looking like new. Poly-mer-modified cement is poured over uneven surfaces, even those you thought were unsalvageable creating a flat, level surface that can be used on its own or have other flooring layed above it.
The concrete floors in your home may become damaged or uneven for a number of reasons. This is an issue because the floors look unattractive and if you wish to lay another flooring cover such as stone or wood, you can’t do this without a flat surface. Self-levelling concrete can be used on indoor concrete, without the need to remove the concrete – a major cost saving. Structural integrity is improved and it is a relatively quick process. When you choose Fort Worth Concrete Stamping for your self-levelling concrete needs, you can be assured our experienced team will provide a thorough service, there are no patch-up jobs that don’t pass the test of time, just quality concrete repair and restoration that lasts.
If you have a concrete patio, pool decking or any other outdoor concrete surface, you’ll know that over time, exposure to the weather and everyday wear and tear can cause damage, leading to cracks or uneven surfaces. This not only looks ugly, it can be a trip hazard for your family and guests. Self-levelling concrete can be an easy way to repair this damage, without the removal of the underlying concrete surface.
Self-levelling concrete can be used on more than just flooring. If you have a concrete countertop that has become damaged over time, this technique might save you the expense of installing a brand-new one. Installation times for this technique is quick because the fluid used is highly fluid and pourable, meaning you can get back to enjoying your countertop sooner. This method also creates a surface with low permeability, making it water resistant and therefore ideal for food preparation.
If after reading, you think self-levelling concrete might be suitable to restore your concrete floor or countertops, it is important that you talk with an expert. Self-levelling concrete comes with a number of advantages, but it isn’t suitable for every job. Heat and moisture can affect the result and when completed by someone inexperienced, it may initially look good, before starting to crack after just a few months, costing you more in the long run.

We take the time to assess the individual job and give our clients an honest assessment whether or not this method is suitable for their situation.
