Peachtree Loft Condominiums in Midtown Atlanta
  • Project: Peachtree Loft Condominiums, Atlanta Georgia, Midtown
  • Address: 878 Peachtree st. NE, Atlanta, Georgia 30309
  • Phone: 404-815-0101
  • Size: 1100 sq. ft. 
  • Time: 4 days
  • Unusual Factors: This project had two obstacles. The first one was that the job was on the 6th floor with no access to bring up our heavier equipment. Such as our 700 lb grinder, but we don’t let the small things stop us from getting the job done. Instead, we used our 200 lb grinder and it worked just as well. Second, due to hardwood floors being the previous flooring solution there was thick, rubbery wood glue covering the entire floor. We used a poly crystalline diamond cup wheel and a tile stripper to remove all of the residue on the concrete floors. 

Polishing and Staining Concrete Midtown, Atlanta Process

After Glue Removal

Day 1: First, we prepped the concrete floors where there were large wood splinters and thick glue. We were able to do this by using a tile stripper.

Day 2: Next, in order to complete polishing and staining the concrete floors at the Peachtree Loft Condominiums in Atlanta on time, we found a quicker way to remove the wood splinters and glue. Our team used a hand grinder with a PCD (Poly Crystalline Diamond) cup wheel simultaneously with the tile stripper. PCD is used for any heavy removal situations. After this step, we began to hand grind and strip the entire concrete floor. 

Day 3: Once all the glue was removed we were able to hand grind the concrete floors. We used a rough diamond cup wheel to remove heavy scratches left over from glue and splinter removal and provide a smooth finish. Then, using a planetary grinder with 16/20, 50, and 100 grits we polished the concrete floors.

Day 4: Then, we began the cleanup process. We vacuumed and swept to remove dust that settled overnight. Lastly, we polished and stained the concrete floors using a grey Ameripolish Concrete Stain. Our team used three coats of sealer which included: one solvent based sealer coat, two water-based sealer coats, and three to four coats of floor wax. This will give the polished and stained concrete floors at the Peachtree Lofts in Atlanta a shiny, durable, and long-lasting color.
