The Concrete Makeover is an experienced installer of self level concrete floors in the state of New Jersey. We install over 100 self leveling cement floors per year for a variety of needs and flooring applications. No matter how large or small, rest assured we have the tools and installing the correct leveling compound for the job.
Concrete floor leveling begins with prepping the current concrete floor, by sometimes grinding it clean and priming the floor with a special self leveling compound bonding agent.
In many scenarios, the self leveling cement floors are installed over wood floors. These cases require a metal mesh be stapled to the wood substrate and prepped and patched the right way.
We then continue the self leveled concrete floor by applying high quality self leveling cement. Self leveling cement is a fluid cement that will level itself out to a nicely flat surface. It can be applied anywhere from 1/4″ to 2″ height and will dry completely hard in as little as 6 hours.
The self leveling cement can be left along for tile, carpet or other flooring types. It can also be sealed or even stained to give it a more decorative look.
The self level cement itself is available in many forms, underlayments designed to be sealed or coated (usually in darker colored cement), in white or light gray colored cements for accepting of dyes and stains and in overlayment blends designed to be polished and left as a wear surface without a coating.
If you are in the New Jersey or New York City area and looking for self leveling cement to fix your concrete floor, please don’t hesitate to call us.
