Tasked with the job of replacing 900m2 of contaminated and worn flooring. A floor covering had not been present for several years and instead the subfloor had been coated with a form of seal and paint.
General foot traffic had caused the flooring to crack and appear soft and unstable – indicating a weak latex based smoothing compound had been installed previously. Small areas across the floor had also been patched, suggesting previous failures in those areas.
