PLUMBERS, PIPEFITTERS, HVAC & WELDERS - UA LOCAL NO. 671

The professionals at Hoover & Wells was contracted to rehabilitate and restore existing concrete in Monroe, MI. We installed new flooring finishes for our partners and friends at local 671 in their newly acquired building!

The Project

The partner’s new expansion needed a floor overhaul before it could be considered functional for the anticipated use. Using our Rez-Stone 9412 (find out more about this system here) 1/8" Color Quartz, we were able give them the exact floor system they desired! Jobs like these may lack in size (at least compared to the projects we often get in warehouses or hangers), but they still take a great deal of attention and expertise from our crews to surpass the owner’s expectations.

Posted by Tony Corsini on 9/11/20 10:45 AM

The professionals at Hoover & Wells completed a set of locker rooms last week for the City of Maumee!

The Project

The City of Maumee needed a floor system that was not only a non-slip texture and would last a long time, but would also have a highly decorative appearance. Using our Rez-Stone 9412 (find out more about this system here) with 4” trowel applied base, we were able give them the exact floor system they desired! Jobs like these may lack in size (at least compared to the projects we often get in warehouses or hangers), but they still take a great deal of attention and expertise from our crews to surpass the owner’s expectations.

The Testing Terms of Concrete Polishing

Posted by Tony Corsini on 7/31/20 11:00 AM

Over the last two decades, the demand for polished concrete has grown drastically. Twenty years ago, when Hoover & Wells started polishing concrete floors, customer expectation was set by specifying a desired gloss level. Although gloss testing is important, there are other tests that have been developed in recent years that will better define the overall expected outcome of the polished concrete surface. Distinctness of Image, Haze, and Roughness Average can be used in addition to the Gloss test to ensure the owner gets the quality floor he or she is paying for. The testing needs to be performed before the application of a sealer/guard because these products tend to give inflated readings. So, let's go over some of these terms and what they mean!

The Basics of Concrete Polishing

Posted by Skipper Clark on 10/26/18 8:57 AM

WHAT IS CONCRETE POLISHING?

Being in the commercial and industrial flooring industry, we hear many different terms that can be confusing like shot blasting, DOI (Distinctness of Image) or RA (Roughness Average). Concrete polishing is the refinement of concrete surfaces using chemicals, metal bonded and resin bonded diamonds to achieve the desired finish. There is an endless amount of combinations between chemicals and metal/resin bonded diamonds to help obtain the desired finish. Our 40+ years of experience helps in understanding what is the best combination in your particular circumstance. The Concrete Polishing Association of America classifies finished gloss levels from 1 (flat) to 4 (highly polished) and aggregate exposure as A (little aggregate), B, C and D (large aggregate) depending on depth of desired surface cut.
