COVID-19: We are still OPEN and are considered an “essential business”
Carpet Removal Sydney jobs under $1,300 will face a “minimum job charge fee” of $1,200
Concrete grinding jobs will face a “minimum job charge fee” of $500 – $2,600
Why do our jobs have a “minimum job charge fee”? Throughout this blog post, we go into detail about why we have minimum job charges.
A minimum job charge is a minimum amount you will bill the customer, applicable when a job is so small that charging per-square metre doesn’t make up for the time spent on the job and administrative overheads of the business.
If you “skip” the process of “floor preparation” by not doing Concrete Grinding companies have the right to NOT give you any warranty on the installation of their flooring system that they have installed. So if it fails within 7 days, it’s YOUR issue and not there’s and you will NOT get a refund/free repair/replacement or anything like that.
So you could end up wasting tens of thousands of dollars purchasing and installing your new flooring system, only to have it fail within a short period of time because you chose to skip the Concrete Grinding or floor levelling (also known as floor preparation) process. THIS is why “floor preparation” is so important.
In our workplace, we hang a “Silica Dust Warning Sign” to let our clients know that it is not safe to enter this working area while we are Concrete Grinding without wearing the appropriatePPE (Personal Protective Equipment)
Silica dust is harmful when inhaled into your lungs. As it is 100 times smaller than a grain of sand, you can be breathing it in without knowing.
Breathing in silica dust can also cause other serious diseases, such as:
That particular law doesn’t specifically require you to seek permission to install the flooring system however if, after the installation, it’s found that any noise transmitting from your lot (due to the new flooring system), disturbs your neighbours.
You may be required (by an NSW Civil & Administrative Tribunal order) to remove or cover the new flooring system to stop the noise affecting others living in your Strata Scheme.
The Cost of Floor Levelling is ($40 – $65 Per Square Metre)* Including GST
These are the factors that we take into account when quoting: – How many square metres/bags are required – Access to the site (Stairwell? Lift?) – What level is the property on? – The condition of the concrete slab or timber floor – Minimum Job Size: 50 Square Metres
The Cost of Concrete Polishing is ($80 – $120 / Per Square Metre)* Including GST
These are the factors that we take into account when quoting: – The condition of the concrete slab (And if any repairs are required) – What service is requested (Honed, Grind and Seal, Polished) – How many square metres are we Concrete Polishing – Access to the site (Stairwell? Lift? what level?) – The size of the job (Small, Medium, Large)
So, its time for you to beginRemoving Magnesitein your home, but you have no idea where to start? and you have only just heard about this material? if you don’t know how to start the process, then you have come to the right place!
Sometimes without realizing that40– 100yearshave gone past since your property has had its Magnesite inspected for potential damage that its causing to your concrete subfloor and the units structure.
Sooner or later, you have to decide when it’s time for your tiles to be replaced.
Unfortunately, tiles are fragile, it can simply take just the drop of a plate to smash or chip a tile, after years of accidents, maybe it’s time to think about ripping up your 20-year-old tiles and replacing them with a new flooring system?
So is it time to replace your tiles? and I’m sure you are wondering, what is the cost of doing this?
We’ll explain every cost involved in the process in this article so that there are no surprises!
So What Is Magnesite? And Why Does It Need To Be Removed?
Magnesite Is A Old Floor Levelling Material Used From The 1920s To The 1980s
Unfortunately, They Did Not Know How Badly It Would Effect Your Concrete Slab Over The Decades It was Laid Down Under Your Flooring Systems, Causing Major Damage To Your Concrete Slab, Which Is Known As “Concrete Cancer”
Magnesite May Also Contain Asbestos! So You Must Have It Tested For Asbestos Before Removal!
So Why Does Concrete Polishing Help With Lighting?
Concrete Polishing will provide better light reflectivity, thereby controlling your overall monthly energy usage
Thanks to the gloss, sheen, and light colour of Polished Concrete Floor finishes. These factors can amplify incoming natural light during the day while reducing the need for artificial lighting in the evenings
As there is often less need for heating and cooling systems in your home, Polished Concrete Floors can save you on your energy bill as well!
Yes, because unlike tiles or timber, which have a very small thermal mass, a concrete slab possesses a high thermal mass and its insulation is therefore excellent.
Because concrete absorbs temperatures and releases them slowly if you’ve had the blinds drawn to shade the floor in summer or the air conditioner on, your floors will add coolness to your home.
Conversely, in winter, if you’ve had the sun on the floor or have had a fireplace going or a heater on, your polished concrete floor will retain that warmth and keep you snug throughout the evening and night.
So Can A Floor Be Polished If My Concrete Slab Has Chips, Holes, or Cracks?
Holes and chips can be filled in with epoxy, polyurethane, or cement depending on the size of the hole or chips.
Our patches can be colour matched to the finish floor so that it is not an eye sore or trip hazard.
From Cracks width and depth to type and cause, the various factor combinations can help determine the best course of action for repair. Understanding the cause of the Cracks is critical to prevent the concrete from cracking again!
