Random Exposure Mechanical Polished Concrete in Dandenong
In our line of work we are often requested by customers to create a polished concrete flooring that stands out from the rest. In our humble opinion, the best way to achieve this is through ‘random exposure.’ Let’s take a look at a recent job we completed, random exposure mechanical polished concrete in Dandenong.
Most people are unaware or wary of such a seemingly odd look, however, in the right circumstances, it can look absolutely fantastic and will ensure your flooring catches the eyes of all.
Random exposure polished concrete basically consists of us polishing different areas of the floor at different levels. Usually, our customers would select the depth of polish they like, and we would then use our machines to polish it down evenly, thus exposing the pebbles inside the concrete in a way that makes their general size all look the same.
However, with random exposure, some parts are polished more deeply than others, meaning that the floor will consist of patches of various-sized pebbles while some parts will almost have no visible pebbles at all. An interesting floor indeed!
Last week, we had the opportunity to complete a random exposure job in Dandenong. Our customer wanted a flooring that had all the benefits of polished concrete but with a much rawer and bolder look. We knew exactly what to recommend them!
However, for this kind of look to be perfected, our workers are required to draw from the farthest reaches of their experience and ability. This isn’t a job for newbies. While the exposure may seem random, careful selection needs to be made as to not throw off the floor’s balance.
The work doesn’t just stop with the workers. The slab of concrete itself needs to be one of high quality. This means that the pouring of the concrete was even, which a consistent level of aggregate. While most slabs of concrete, even the oldest and most decrepit, can be turned into stunning polished concrete flooring with the right tools and workers, random exposure needs the initial laying of concrete to be done perfectly right from the start. This means, that, if you desire this style on an existing slab, we will first have to thoroughly check whether or not it is suitable.
Luckily, our customers in Dandenong had the ideal slab for such a job, and we were able to pull of this difficult mission with ease! They were impressed with the final result, saying that it’ll suit the modern and quaint plans for their interior design.
