We started a new decorative concrete project this week at Pioneer Forge in Pioneer, Ohio. This will probably be a three-phase project with some larger areas to be completed during Forth Of July shutdown, but now in the first phase, we are working on one of their restroom areas, a first aid room and two office rooms.
Like many of our recent projects, we had to first start with removing tile with an air compression tile-removal tool. Taking off the tile wasn’t too hard (just the typical problems of a few stubborn tiles) but what really gave us fits was removing the base moldings from around the base of the cinder block walls – luckily, we had another air tool to help remove it.
With all the old tiles off and concrete surface ground with our diamond grinding wheels, we are ready for some industrial-strength epoxy.
Check-out a couple of before and after pictures of our progress so far:
