• Subfloor Preparation

  • Subfloor Services We Offer

    • DIAMOND GRINDING

    Using top quality grinding and dust extraction equipment, we can grind away residues such as coatings, adhesives and epoxies, and smooth out imperfections, preparing your concrete slab for a new surface. 

    • SUB-FLOOR LEVELLING

    We level your sub-floor using quality priming and self-levelling cement products, removing dips and humps to leave a smooth, even base on which your new floor can be laid.

    • TAKE UP & DISPOSAL

    We can pull up carpet, tiles, vinyl, timber, laminate and other existing floor coverings. Not only that, but we can take it away and responsibly dispose of it for you too.

    Once the tiles have been removed, the remains of the original adhesive and latex will be left. The only method suitable for tackling this sticky residue is Vacuum Assisted Diamond Grinding which will remove all of that adhesive and latex to bring the existing slab back to its original state leaving it ready for any new systems to be applied.

    • MOISTURE TESTING AND THE APPLICATION OF DAMP PROOF MEMBRANE - DPM.  

    Floor finishes must only be installed on subfloors with moisture levels below 75% relative humidity (RH). If your hydrometer reading is above 75% RH, regardless of whether the floor is old or new, it’s imperative that you install a surface damp proof membrane (DPM).

    Specifically in newbuild situations, it may be necessary to install a damp-proof membrane on top of a concrete slab to enable moisture sensitive floor finishes to be laid on top of the slab - enabling works to be completed more quickly than would otherwise be the case
