This is a MUST READ section for builders, contractors & subs.
We work extensively with home builders, and have developed this section of the site in order to give you a list of our requirements. Our job goes more quickly and smoothly if we all understand what our expectations are. This is a must read section for anyone we work with.
Whether you are a builder, contractor, subcontractor or homeowner, this is important information that you should know. Most of this material applies to new construction. Following our guidelines will help us to achieve the optimum results and minimizes damage to the concrete floor before and after the staining and sealing process.
You will need to treat the concrete floor as if it were an unstained wood floor. Anything that can discolor, bleach or stain a wood floor could also affect the success of staining a concrete floor, so protect the floor well before and after staining.
Make sure all floors are protected from sub-contractor activity. The floor will achieve the best staining results if it has be en kept free of all foreign substances. Stains, patches, chips or cracks in the concrete will be evident after the staining is finished. Some defects will actually enhance the ‘aged’ effect of your finished floor, but it is best to protect the floor fr om the things we have listed below.
Owners, builders and contractors are solely responsible for the condition of the floor before we commence work, and after we ha ve completed our work. We do not imply or accept liability for damaged floors. Insist that your subs accept all liability for any damage they may cause during construction. We recommend that you have them read and sign a copy of this section.
