Resurfacing Tiles – Transforming the Old into New!
When purchasing a used property, it is common for the tiles to not meet your personal preferences. However, a complete renovation can be both time-consuming and costly
The solution: old tiles can be effortlessly refurbished without the need for removal. The seamless filler floor has a minimal thickness of only 3-5 mm, the seamless cast floor 5-7 mm, and the installation process saves both dirt and time, unlike tile removal
The troweled or poured floor covering creates the illusion of larger rooms and adds value to the property. It is long-lasting, timeless, easy to maintain, and boasts robustness, ensuring long-term satisfaction.
On which surfaces can a seamless floor be applied?
In principle, a seamless floor can be applied to all solid, load-bearing, and intact surfaces. Whether it’s tiles, screed, or concrete – as long as the substrate is stable, it is suitable for the application of seamless floors. Vinyl, parquet, and similar materials need to be removed. This provides great flexibility in room design, as existing tiles do not necessarily have to be removed but can serve as a base.
Due to their thermal conductivity, seamless floor coverings are especially well-suited for use with underfloor heating. This not only creates an aesthetically pleasing floor design, but also allows for efficient heat distribution throughout the room
Seamless surfaces therefore offer a versatile solution to meet the aesthetic and functional requirements of floor surfaces.
Which substrates are not suitable for a seamless floor?
Seamless floor is not suitable for “soft” surfaces like wood or carpet. These surfaces can shift or deform over time, leading to cracks or unevenness in the seamless flooring
To ensure long-lasting durability and a flawless surface for the seamless floor, it is crucial that the substrate is stable, firm, and capable of supporting weight. Therefore, it is necessary to remove wooden or carpeted floors and replace them with a suitable floor structure before preparing the surface for the jointless covering.
Advantages of seamless flooring
Seamless flooring offers a multitude of advantages. It is characterized by easy cleaning and maintenance, as dirt and dust cannot accumulate in bothersome joints. Furthermore, with proper care and use, it is durable and has a long lifespan. In the event of small accidents, they can be easily and promptly resolved
The seamless appearance lends an aesthetic appeal to the room, whether it is applied as a poured floor or with a trowel. The range of floor coatings includes epoxy resin, cement floors, cast terrazzo, and exposed screed, allowing for individual customization to complement the wall design
Seamless flooring contributes to a healthy indoor climate as it is low in emissions and non-flammable. An additional highlight is its compatibility with underfloor heating systems
At IBOD, we provide a range of premium jointless flooring solutions that encompass all these benefits, and we will also help you find the perfect floor covering that suits your individual needs.
