This is the main room of a
900 sq. ft. residential finished basement. The photo at left shows the
condition of the concrete at
the outset. The photo at right shows the floor after first cleaning, then
grinding to shave off fibers used in the concrete
mix, ngraving out indelible chemical stains caused by the carpenters and
painters, and finally scoring decorative cuts to
balance the existing control joints. After the surface prep was done, the floor
was stained using Artcrete's "Onyx" acid
stain. The first two photos below show the relatively flat finish of the
floor after sealing with Decosup's solvent-based acrylic sealer.
The last two photos show the added luster and gloss from several coats of Spartan's On 'n On floor finish.
