Microcement Floor

When looking for alternative floor coverings, Microcement could be an option for you.

It’s robust, stylish, and results in a seamless flow from area to area, not only that you can apply it to other surfaces in the same property, including wet rooms, walls and kitchens.

Making microcement an incredibly versatile product.

It can resemble concrete or natural stone, but this does not govern you. With any of our decorative coatings, you gt to choose how you’d like it t be finished.


Microcement Bathroom Floors

Seeing as microcement can be used on bathroom floors, it is very suitable as an alternative to laying tiles, vinyl or wooden flooring.

With a good amount of slip rating, especially with the more oversized grain-sized products, it looks fantastic and will be safe to use when using the space with wet feet.

One of the main appeals of using this product range is that you can install seamlessly, taking the same finish across into wetroom trays, bringing up the walls and coating eh inside of shower enclosures and wet areas.

It is also suitable to use over the top of underfloor heating kits.

We will thoroughly inspect and assess the substrate for movement and suitability with any of our bathroom floor installations.

Should it require additional support, preparations or strengthening, we’ll let you know; ultimately, this is designed to last, so the foundation must be solid.

With that being sound, we’d then set about following our system of priming and preparation.


Can Microcement go over tiled floors?

Microcement will go over most substrates, including tiled floors, providing they are solid and sound.

The floor will need checking beforehand to make sure that there isn’t any trapped moisture or potential issues lying underneath. The tiles could remain in place and be coated with the product if deemed suitable.

The reasoning for doing this might be to save on time and labour of having to remove and then prepare the area, especially true if there is underfloor heating to contend with that may become damaged if you try to remove the tiled floor and adhesive. 


Can I use Microcement over concrete floors?

Install microcement over a solid concrete floor is one of the ideal substrates since it offers excellent adhesion and is stable.

The installation would result in a more comfortable surface to walk on, especially if paired with the addition of underfloor heating.

Finish wise, the effects of microcement can be comparable to that of concrete, polished concrete or micro concrete, although it is a different product in its own right.

For those who seek this seamless stone finish then it could present an excellent choice for your renovation project.


Could Microcement be installed over wooden floors?

Theoretically, microcement can be installed over any substrate, including wooden floors. We may need to talk about some additional steps depending on your setup.

This would need to be assessed on a case-by-case basis, but getting over a solid plywood floor is ideal.

You’ll commonly find this to be used when installing bathrooms or wetrooms.

To go over other types of wooden floors may require the floor to be over boarded with plywood.

Using this ensures a consistent level of suction and adhesion, so we know that the microcement will be successful and enjoyed for many years.

For bouncy floors or have fallen into a state of disrepair, they’ll require some remedial works before the microcement product is installed to guarantee a good finish.
