FLOORING

Concrete and primers for repairing and restoring concrete floors.
There is a seemingly endless list of finished flooring materials (tile, hardwood, carpet, epoxy, polyurethane) that provide function, durability and aesthetics for their required purpose. If the substrate is uneven or an elevation change is required, a self-leveling underlayment is used to accomplish that task. Rapid Set® LevelFlor® and Acrylic Primer or Concrete Leveler and Concrete Leveler Primer are used to level or raise the elevation of existing concrete substrates and provide a sound surface for finished flooring. For more flooring solutions, see Slab-On-Grade.
