BACKGROUND: This family owned Grand Rapids based packaging company specializes in converting bulk products into retail packages of many types, from simple poly-bagging, bundling, and shrink-wrapping, to high-graphic barrier foil and poly standup re-sealable pouches. They wanted to update their 1,620 square foot office space to bring it up to date, and have it’s appearance match the professional capabilities that they can offer their customers. The area was covered in a worn carpet, so the condition of the concrete underneath was unknown. After speaking with Xtreme about several different floor coating (including epoxy, and polyaspartic) and polished concrete options, they settled on a natural gray polished concrete floor with salt and pepper stone exposure (referring to the stone size visible in the polished concrete).
APPLICATION: Since Xtreme is a larger sized concrete polishing and floor coating contractor, we have the equipment and crews to knock out polished concrete and floor coating projects quickly in West Michigan. This Grand Rapids polished concrete project was completed from start to finish in just 2 days. The carpet was quickly and efficiently removed using one of our ride on floor scrapers. After the carpet was out of the way, we used several walk behind diamond grinders (attached to our high performance dust collectors) to remove the carpet glue / mastic. Grinding off the carpet glue exposed the concrete so that Xtreme could assess the condition of the remaining concrete to make sure that it was a good candidate for our X-Shine Concrete Polishing System. Since the concrete was deemed to be in acceptable condition for a salt and pepper concrete polish, the system was continued. Xtreme’s experienced crews went through all of the diamond steps, densification process, and application of our X Guard (which is then burnished).
The Grand Rapids packaging company was extremely satisfied with their choice to hire Xtreme as their concrete polishing contractor saying “…your guys did an AMAZING job. Everyone was so thrilled how the (polished concrete) floors turned out and your guys were so nice, helpful and easy to work with…”
