Decorative Concrete Floor Coatings – Silverleaf Technique
This project was actually completed in Pawtucket Rhode Island in a loft building using self leveling concrete and a technique called Silverleaf. The project was completed by Madstone Floors of Barrington RI who completes many projects in the Boston to Providence local area.
The product was Duraamen Products self leveling concrete floor coatings called Param. Param is an outstanding product to use for loft conversions. Lofts always have remodeling challenges, especially with floors. Successful loft conversions require knowledge of building products and renovation techniques that solve problems. For those without this knowledge and experience, financial distater is imminent.
Madstone Floors is highly skilled in the use of decorative concrete floor coatings and polished concrete for lofts. They have helped many developers and loft owners with cost saving solutions while providing sensational decorative floors like this one.
Madstone applied Param self leveling concrete over a plywood substrate. The owner wanted a seamless, highly reflective surface which they achieved using 6″ x 6″ sheets of Silverleaf. To protect the decorative concrete, an epoxy sealer was applied.
The photos don’t show the sensational result. But you can see how well the concrete floor coatings work in a loft. The result provided a functional and cost effective solution while the decorative appearance complemented the old brick.
Concrete Floor Coatings – The Most Versatile Building Product
There are very few professionals who can achieve what Madstone created for this project but it does show the versatility of concrete. Artisans have been working with cement products for centuries with timeless results. Just look at the Pantheon in Italy as an example.
Today the products, tools and application methods are technologically advanced. Mo0st people still equate concrete with sidewalks and are unaware of the potential. Manufacturers, architects and artisans are using concrete floor coatings in every type of property. Today, anything that can be made, can be made better with concrete.
