EARTHQUAKE DAMAGED CONCRETE

This concrete (at a cafe in Kaikoura) had been earthquake damaged-rendering it out of level and with many cracks. ABCG ground the concrete level, filled the cracks with grey tint and sealed the concrete for this finished product.

FILLING OF EXPANSION CUTS & CRACKS

After opening up the expansion cuts and cracks, they were filled with a two-pot epoxy and then ground back flush. All completed to MPI standard.

CREAMY MARBLE EFFECT

By just polishing the cream on the top of the concrete, a marble type effect was achieved.

1450 m2 COMPLETED IN 7 DAYS

Target Furniture on Moorehouse Ave. We had just 7 days to take this 1450m2 floor to 800 grit and then burnish in two coats of sealer. ABCG finished the job on time & within budget.

FULL SHOT OF BLACK OXIDE

This floor in Duvauchelles had a full shot of black oxide in it. A salt & pepper grind was applied to lighten it up a little and then we undertook a full high spec polish to 1500 grit.

FIXING DYI EFFORTS

The owner of this floor had a go at it himself (it's the Kiwi way) but made a bit of a mess of it. ABCG did a regrind and seal and the owner was happy with the result.

BLACK OXIDE SHOT WITH TOP POLISH

This split level residence had underfloor heating and a half shot of black oxide in the concrete. Only the top was polished giving a marble effect.

This was an old concrete floor. A full depth grind and seal was the chosen option, giving the flow a natural light look.

CASHMERE KITCHEN

JULY 2018

For this particular project our clients wanted their kitchen floor to match their newly installed polished concrete bench top. Originally the floor looked tired and dirty, ABCG did a full depth grind on the floor to expose the aggregate, we then polished it to 3000 grit for a smooth, shinny finish. Upon completion the kitchen looked completely transformed, and the space was left looking modern and fresh.

LOBSTER INN RESTAURANT & BAR KAIKOURA

April 2018

The original sealer at the main entrance of this restaurant had worn off completely, leaving the concrete looking old and dirty. ABCG ground the concrete to a scratch free, clean service and sealed it with a penetrating sealer, leaving the entrance way looking brand new again.

GOVERNORS BAY RESIDENTIAL RENOVATION

January 2018

This property was originally carpeted through out, but with heavy rain flooding the residence every winter, the owners wanted to find a more sustainable flooring solution. ABCG removed the carpet, ground the concrete down to expose the underlying aggregate, then applied a resene water based wax sealer, giving the floor a natural light emitting finish.

HYNDS PIPES

August 2017

For this project the client moved their reception counter. The stain left where the counter previously sat was significantly reduced by grinding the concrete and the existing polished concrete floor was then re-polished and sealed.

WAIMAK JET BOAT

June 2017

This floor had been poured 50 years ago and had been mixed by hand with the aggregates from the Waimak River bed. It was a rough old floor and it came up great with a grind and seal.
