Nothing is ...

We understand that corporations have significant investments in their floor. Our mission is to make sure that you get the most out of that investment without sacrificing any of the qualities of concrete that made you chose it in the first place.
We can restore concrete floors of almost any condition back into the aesthetic appearance of original installation. We can also repair the structural integrity of the floor to a condition even stronger than found at original installation. Most of the floors that Tercon Systems restores are over 40 years old and truly show the extreme abuse put on a floor in use for that duration of time. Many of our competitors will look at these floors and classify them as “beyond repair” translating to a poor recommendation to replace the floor rather than restore it. However, with our unique approach to our services, we have the ability to restore even these floors to a like new condition.

RESTORATION BENEFITS

Restoration equates to a fractional cost required to maintain your investment when you choose Tercon Systems. Our complete concrete restoration service usually costs only 5-50% of replacement cost. Our technicians also work around the clock coming in after business hours or when your business operations are less demanding. This allows us to do all of our work while your corporation operates almost at full operation. This luxury is not always an option when corporations chose to replace their floor.

THE PROCESS

We can break our restoration process up into two categories: Structural Repair and Aesthetic Restoration. One of the first things that our technicians do when evaluating our repairs is deciding exactly how structural the issue is. We have the expertise to understand and classify a problem as purely aesthetic, mostly aesthetic with minor structural repair, or most structural with minor aesthetic repairs. Our technicians understand how to conquer your floors issues without “over repairing” or “under repairing” to ensure that you get the most our of your investment.

STRUCTURAL REPAIR

Our clients come to us for many different types of imperfections in their floor. However, it is almost universal that these floors have cracks somewhere along the surface. Cracks may appear to only affect the surface of your floor, however, they are really just a byproduct of structural flaws. This means that fixing a crack only at the surface level will only act as a short term solution and in the end will be a poor choice to make the most of your floor investment. At TerCon systems, we go beyond the surface and repair the structure to a condition that is actually stronger than found at original installation.

A crack in your floor essentially means that there is void or empty space somewhere in the structure. This empty space is a significant problem because it creates a weak point that will easily fall victim to repeated heavy loads on the surface. A crack in the floor means that the structure of the floor has shifted as a result of the surrounding floor breaking down due to the weak points created by the void. However, there is a way to fill this empty space called injection which comes in two varieties:

Epoxy Injection

Epoxy Injection

Used to weld concrete back together. This method will make the concrete stronger than found at original installation at the point of injection.
Chemical Injection

Chemical Injection

A similar process to the epoxy injection, but with less structural materials. It is usually used to stop water leaks where structural integrity is still mostly intact.

Our injection process serves as a long term solution at a low cost that maximizes and preserves your structural floor investment. After our injection fluid dries and hardens, it is actually much stronger than the concrete was to begin with. In most cases, we can warranty our crack repairs for longer than we can warranty a brand new installation.

Cosmetic Repair

Cracks

Patches

The first step in our cosmetic repair process is the repairing of small holes/ divots in the surface of the concrete, filling and camouflaging cracks, and filling and camouflaging patches in the concrete as well. Repairing cosmetic damage to a nearly indistinguishable finish is one of the most vital aspects of our work that separates us from other floor restoration companies.

Grinding and Vitrification

We will start our grinding process at a different grit/coarseness according to the severity of the scratches and imperfections we find in the floor. The last element of our process is the application of a chemical sealer/ hardener that creates a tough, durable, slip, stain, and scratch resistant floor. Despite the floor’s shine, the vitrified surface is slip resistant and long lasting.

The two most common concrete finishes in use today are the “salt and pepper” finish, which has a smaller size aggregate shown on the surface and looks great in industrial facilities. The second is the “natural exposed brilliance” finish, which is designed to give not only the floor a more brilliant luster, but to compliment any show room or other ornate space.
