How do you change out the floor in a grocery store that remains open for business? The easy answer: use the right tools for the job. Exposed Floor Design Group had to work the night shift at a Brookshire’s store in Texas from 11pm to 6am, which did not provide a lot of time to get work done, especially when allowing for curing. However, the crew managed well by following tried and true steps and by using highly trusted Metzger/McGuire products. You can see how well the store’s floors turned out in the gallery below.
Project: Brookshire’s Store in Kaufman, TX
Scope: Remove VCT, Repair Slab, Grind, Polish
Materials: RS88, Rapid Refloor, ArmorHard, Pentra-Sil
- First night: demo VCT and remove glue with first grind
- Second night: repair holes with Repid Refloor (color matched to the slab, “High Tea”) and polish up to 800’s
- Third night: move the racks between the areas completed night 1 and 2, demo, repair, polish and reset racks
- Fourth night: polish the whole floor throughout
The Stunning Results:
The customer was incredibly impressed by the Rapid Refloor product. They found it to be aesthetically better, as it can be color matched, in addition to being durable and smooth. The key to Rapid Refloor repairs is to remove dirt from spalls, square the edges and sand flush to the floor. Exposed uses Rapid Refloor in the same way for several of its customers. When you have small dents, chips and dings on your floor, Rapid Refloor is a great solution!
