Yes we are happy to work throughout out the UK and Europe.
We sometimes use specialists for large HTC superfloors, other than that we install all of our own work.
Yes we install small concrete installation projects; each project is priced on its specific requirements. Please give us a call to discuss your project requirements and we can provide you with a budget cost. If you would like a formal quotation email us your project details and we can produce this for you.
If you forward us a scale drawing, the square meterage of the work required and a estimated installation date, we can provide an estimate. If required we will carry out site survey.
We have a small range of popular polished concrete colour samples. Concrete samples can be made on request.
Yes, the London Showroom can be viewed by appointment only. Please email email@example.com
We have many addresses you can see our work in a commercial or retail environment. We have some domestic installations you could view by appointment.
We are able to cast concrete worktops, sinks, countertops, splash backs and tiles up to 1000mm x 1000mm to match the floors. Any bespoke items are manufactured in our large factory in Somerset.
YES, unlike many companies claiming to install polished concrete, we have been laying concrete for over 20 years.
All Lazenby polished concrete floors with underfloor heating must be a minimum of 100mm deep.
Each job varies and the shallower the polished concrete floor the more joints will be required.
We would recommend a Lazenby polished concrete floor to be 100mm deep.
Yes polished concrete conducts and stores heat well. The floor acts as a huge storage heater giving off a very pleasant feel.
We recommend the underfloor heating can be turned on after 28 days but the longer the better. It is essential all systems are turned up by a maximum of 3 degrees centigrade per three days. This is the water temperature not the room temperature.
Polished concrete does not like sudden / extreme changes in temperature.
In our opinion the water temperature through underfloor heating pipes should never exceed 35°c. If the water is allowed to exceed 35°c it will increase the risk of cracking.
No a Lazenby polished concrete floor is laid directly on the insulation.
We do not recommend the use of the egg crate system of underfloor heating as this makes it difficult to set up our reinforcement.
Yes, all Lazenby polished concrete floors can be installed outside. Different sealers can be applied for each application. It is essential a temporary cover is set up to keep direct sunlight off the patio.
In the winter a shelter should be constructed so we are able to heat the space and keep the area dry.
Yes it is possible to use a Lazenby polished concrete floor in a wet room.
Most polished concrete floors are cast as a single piece then divided up the following day with a neat saw cut called a crack inducement joint. This joint creates a weak spot and the polished concrete will shrink (crack) in a neat straight line.
These joints will expand and contract as the polished concrete floor heats and cools. For this reason we use a flexible sealer such as polyurethane. This will be a similar colour to your floor.
This is possible but not very practical. The floor will shrink away from the metal joint and possible leave a frail edge. It also is difficult to install with underfloor heating.
Each site is different but it is possible to fit the polished concrete floor with or without windows and doors. If the doors are missing it is essential a shutter is fitted at the correct height to create a void for the doors to be fitted later.
Remember, if a polished concrete floor is being fitted in the winter the building or space should be weather proof and sealed up from any outside elements.
We will use space heaters to keep the house warm and above 10 degrees.
Yes but with all concrete the more inserts in the floor, the greater the risk of cracking.
Yes we are able to pre-cast these or pour steps in-situ.
We have a range of popular colours however we are able to match to RAL numbers in many cases.
No, we are able to supply Lazenby polished concrete floors in a variety of finishes: Matt, Satin or Gloss.
We aim for all of our floors to be low maintenance. The secret is to use the correct cleaner and maintainer. We have a range of products for all situations. You could choose weekly mopping or the daily use of a floor scrubber.
If floors are maintained correctly they should improve with time. We are able to re- polish or re-seal if required.
A Lazenby polished concrete floor will be installed in three days. This includes all setting up and the final protection layer.
In winter the floors can take a very long time to set. Our installation gang might be working as late as midnight. Please make your neighbours aware of this to avoid any problems.
We recommend cleaning sealing and polishing a Lazenby polished concrete floor in the week before handover. We are able to protect all your surfaces, this process uses cleaning equipment not large HTC polishing machines.
The HTC process is started when the concrete is sufficiently cured. 14 days is a guideline for most freshly laid concrete. The floors will be polished, sealed and protected at this stage. The machinery is large and heavy and will require 3 phase electricity and access to a hoist if the HTC Superfloor is not at ground level.
All concrete has the possibility of cracking. With careful use of shrink reducing admixtures, anti crack reinforcing, designed crack control and good working practice the risk of cracking is reduced.
The misuse of underfloor heating with sudden temperature changes is the biggest reason for cracks in floors.
Concrete likes to be laid in regular square or rectangular bays.
If a polished concrete floor cracks it will be held together with the reinforcing mesh. The crack can be filled with a coloured polymer repair system.
