Floor Surface Preparation
Self-Leveling Underlayments and Toppings:
In some cases, interior concrete surfaces are too damaged and deteriorated. Self-leveling underlayment and topping systems repair damaged or uneven sub floors and provide a flat, smooth surface.
Prior to installation of any flooring system, moisture testing as required by the floorcovering and floor adhesive manufacturers must be conducted. Often times, the moisture levels in the concrete are too high to receive flooring. In these cases a moisture mitigation system must be installed.
Ace/Avant’s Specialty Division installs 100% solids, two component epoxy moisture mitigation systems that are designed and warrantied to withstand moisture levels up to 100% RH. Our project managers can work with flooring contractors, general contractors, and building owners to custom tailor an installation schedule that minimizes downtime while ensuring a fast installation.
Concrete Grinding, Shotblasting, and Scarifying:
Ace/Avant’s Specialty Division provides full service mechanical surface preparation. The most common types of mechanical surface preparation for concrete are shotblasting, grinding, scarifying, and shaving. Our crews are fully trained and we are fully equipped with all the necessary equipment, including HEPA rated dust collectors and air scrubbers.
