Step 1: Degrease and clean existing flooring

Step 3: Mechanically abrade surface to create a profile as per manufacturer's specifications
Step 4: Install 4" integral radius coving to all wall to floor joints
Step 5: Apply urethane concrete flooring systems
Step 6: Apply chemical resistant epoxy floor coating
Removing any foreign matter to include oils etc. to be certain of a long term bond for the new restaurant kitchen flooring system. In addition, the existing substrate had many varying elevations that needed to be leveled out to make the new urethane cement flooring conducive to the new equipment layout.
We started by degreasing the existing flooring. Followed by tying in the various elevations to create a even floor layout for the new urethane concrete flooring system. We then applied our 4" integrated radius cove base to eliminate any 90 degree corners to address any listeria or other bad actors that might harbor bacteria.
Once all remediation and coving work was completed, we followed with our urethane cement slurry and broadcast to excess to create our non slip texture.
Finally we top coated the entire resinous flooring system with a high solids chemical resistant epoxy coating. HPS has a large portfolio of various spaces that we have converted to restaurant flooring spaces to include slope and trench drainage.
