Flooring Removal Melbourne
Removing Flooring in Melbourne for over 20 years
If it’s time to renovate and you’d like to replace your existing flooring, have you considered exposing and transforming your concrete floor?
Traditionally used as a base underneath wooden floors, carpet, linoleum and tiles, concrete is taking on a life of its own. Exposed concrete flooring is not only stunning, but also economically and environmentally sustainable.
What to consider during floor renovations in Melbourne
Concrete flooring is a great choice for a floor renovation, due to its unique insulating quality. It is able to retain heat in winter and stay cool in summer. This makes it ideal not only for homes, but also businesses and industrial buildings as well.
While DIY can seem tempting, hiring a professional to remove or remodel your floors will generally save you both time & money and is the easier option. We have the right tools and experience to remove your old flooring and preserve your concrete floors professionally.
We can remove a wide variety of flooring types and other materials
We are skilled at removing:
- Tiles, including ceramics, marble, and terrazzo
- Timber flooring
- Sand and cement bedding
- High build glues
- Granolithic (Grano) screeds
- Levelling compounds
- Waterproofing membranes
How do we remove your flooring?
We come equipped with a variety of tools, based on the extent of your job and the materials requiring removal, including floor scrapers, floor stripping machines, carpet pullers, pry bars and jack hammers etc.
How to plan for your floor removal
Removing a tile floor may seem straightforward at first, but it can be time-consuming and physically demanding to do it yourself, they are usually glued into place with adhesives or mortar, and you may not have the adequate tools to do the job well without damaging the floor underneath. It will also depend on what is under the tiles, ie you might find previous flooring, screeds, levelling compounds and membranes etc.
Contact us to discuss how we can remove your tiles efficiently and advise on how to create a beautiful look with polished concrete.
Removing epoxy flooring
Although we take pride in creating beautiful concrete floors using epoxy resins, we can also remove epoxy flooring for you.
We remove the epoxy resin by using diamond grinding equipment and industrial vacuums taking care not to damage your concrete floor. We recommend hiring a professional to do this for you, as epoxy resins bind to the surface of the concrete and as such you need specialised equipment to remove them correctly. We understand how to avoid this and will ensure your result is of the highest standard.
After removing the epoxy resin, the floor will be thoroughly vacuumed to remove all dust and debris.
What about other floor types?
Even though tiles are the most commonly removed flooring, we are experienced in removing laminate, hybrid plank, clicklock hardwood flooring, cork, carpets and other flooring types. Each type of flooring has a different way of removal and without the required knowledge and skill by an expert team this could be an expensive and unsightly outcome to the concrete underneath.
Benefits of flooring removal
Flooring is a valuable aspect of the overall comfort, cleanliness and design in any property, here are just some of the benefits you can achieve when removing your current flooring.
- New look and feel: whether you are removing the current flooring due to wear and tear or updating with more modern concepts. You are in control of what to replace the floor with, whether that be tiles, carpet or the modern and practical polished concrete.
