Concrete Installation

National Acid Proofing industrial concrete pouring

The concrete sub-floor holds many keys to a successful brick floor installation.  A pre-pour meeting between the brick flooring contractor and the crew foreman of the concrete installer has proven to be a valuable way to communicate the necessary information required to create the best concrete floor surface to receive the acid brick floor.

There are several key factors in creating a concrete subfloor that will correctly drain the brick floor it supports:

To achieve a consistent, uniform slope  – perimeter screeds set level and a single, center screed that slopes to the drain.  This simple system accommodates the otherwise complex requirements to establish floor slope and prevents the floor slab from “flattening out” in the corners of the drainage bay.
