Polished concrete toppings are a favourite choice of architects and designers in the retail sector. They can correct undesirable conditions on existing slabs to produce a predictable surface.

The retail unit is located in an older section of Yorkdale, one of Toronto’s premier malls. There were many layers of toppings and trenches filled with weak mortars. Floor Solutions, removed all toppings to get the structural slab. All trenches were filled with engineered cement. A mixture of an epoxy primer and sand broadcast were applied to the entire surface to bond a preleveling topping. This layer was poured to a benchmark 1/2” lower than the final grade. A second layer of epoxy and sand were applied again to the entire slab. The final topping was poured to grade and polished to a low gloss finish. A sealer was applied afterwards for protection against stains.
